Have you heard of the phrase “pre-pumpkin spicing?” If not, here’s a quick definition: Pre-pumpkin spicing is when numerous coffee chains release pumpkin everything way too early in the season. It can also be described as a time when mobs of PSL-obsessed fiends crowd around Starbucks (mid-September) in the hopes of being the very first to sip the seasonal drink, even though it’s still hot as Hell outside. What does this have to do with Black Friday? Literally everything. (Which is very good for our wallets, btw.)
Thanks to our instant-gratification-seeking society, the holiday season officially starts as soon as we manage to peel ourselves out of bed and wipe off whatever Halloween makeup is left over from the night before. And while I’ve fought it for years now, all I can do is grin when I see glitter and gold covering every storefront on 5th Avenue in early November.
Even so, I didn’t want to seem too eager so I waited exactly one week to release this year’s best Black Friday deals. Here are 10 sales I’ll definitely be shopping this year.
