Has anyone else noticed how insane Black Friday has gotten? The buying frenzy actually starts on Thanksgiving now, creeping up from midnight store openings to 9pm, 8pm and earlier on Thursday.
News flash: you cannot take Thanksgiving, Black Friday. RUDE.
Since I’d rather shop online anyway and never leave my house, here are my favorite Etsy picks from today’s retail-based insanity.
ALSO, Etsy has the added benefit of offering customizable items, so instead of grabbing the last ___ on the shelf, you can give personalized gifts.
Take, for example, this custom monogram bar necklace from seller makepienotwar. Customize it with a name, date, or both, like the day you realized Black Friday was rull dumb.
A classy laptop sleeve like this one from seller WillowandCompany is also always a good bet. Appealing, unisex, and you can use code ship4free4me to get free shipping. Whaaaaaat yes.
I’m really digging this giant blue sweater from seller kupukupuapparel, which looks like a tent until you realize it has tight “Japanese-style” sleeves. Then it becomes a super-high-fashion tent. Perfect for the loved one whose weight fluctuates uncontrollably!
Show your love, then hide it away with this customizable tie clip from seller CelebrateToday. It’s made of brushed aluminum, so it won’t tarnish even after your love has rusted to nothingness. I mean…love springs eternal.
