Let’s get to it. Happy shopping and happy saving!
1. $53 Off Clarisonic Mia 1 Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System in Lavender & L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask
This bundle gift set of the Clarisonic Mia 1 and L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask is 39 percent off for Black Friday, reducing the price by $53. According to price tracking, this is $15 lower than the lowest price ever offered for this product. If you’re buying for someone who loves their makeup, this is a must and a game changer. At the end of the day, no matter how much I scrub at my face, in the morning I’m going to find some smudged makeup I couldn’t quite remove. The Clarisonic Mia 1 Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush System uses soft, oscillating bristles that move at 300 oscillations per second. I can’t even conceptualize how fast that is. It removes six times more makeup, dirt, oil, and sweat than manual washing.
All this leads to cleaner skin, unblocked pores, and softer, smoother looking skin as the brush gently exfoliates. You want to use this wet, but that’s no issue since the Clarisonic Mia 1 is cordless and completely waterproof. You can take it in the shower with you if you like. It charges via a USB cord and comes with a one year warranty. The bundle includes the Detox and Brighten Pure Clay Mask which uses charcoal to draw out even more dirt and oil while clay, seaweed, and yuzu fruit refresh and improve skin tone.
It’s also available in white, pink, and electric pink.
Price: $85 (39 percent off MSRP)

2. $170 Off Citizen Women’s Eco-Drive Sport Two-Tone Watch
A watch is a great happy medium between a practical gift and a dramatic gift of jewelry. This watch from Citizen was originally $275. Amazon has it discounted by 50% and now is reducing it another 25% for Black Friday making it the lowest price this watch has been since November of 2014. It’s a lovely two-tone stainless steel. The brushed silver color with gold accents means it can go with both gold and silver jewelry making it much more wearable day-to-day. The classic analog display runs on near-silent Japanese quartz movement and is waterproof up to 330 feet. I don’t know about you, but I don’t ever intend to end up 330 feet deep in water.
The face features light up hands to read in the dark and a display of the day and date. I’m always having to pull out my phone to check the date so this is a really handy feature. At 27 millimeters, the face is just about three millimeters wider than an American quarter if that helps give you some scale of the size of this watch. It’s dainty enough for small wrists but not so much that it’s unreadable. This Black Friday deal will really help your budget stretch.
Price: $104.99 (62 percent off MSRP)

3. $50 Off Echo Show in White
If they haven’t yet joined all the folks who are having their lives made easier with Alexa, or even if they just might like an upgrade, the Echo Show provides all the services of previous models, but this time with a screen. On Black Friday you can pick this up for 22 percent off–that’s $50 less than the normal $229.99, which is the lowest price it’s been offered yet. The Echo Show has added quite a bit to Alexa’s repertoire including video calls, streaming video from compatible devices like security cameras and baby monitors, on-screen lyrics while playing music, playing movies and videos, visual weather forecasts, and displaying your photo gallery.
Like the original Alexa, it will still control home smart devices, stream music from Pandora and Spotify, and answer questions all through voice activation. With eight microphones, Alexa will always be able to hear you. The sound quality for music is impressive and will easily fill a room. The list of Alexa’s skills will only keep growing as more and more compatible apps keep coming out to join resources like Uber and AllRecipes. This is about as close to the futuristic life of the Jetson’s as it gets right now.
Price: $179.99 (22 percent off MSRP)

4. $100.04 Off Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker by De’Longhi in Grey
When I was given my espresso maker, I’m not sure which I hugged more–the person who got it for me or the box itself. This Black Friday the Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Maker is half off for $98.96, down from $199. If the woman in your life likes foam on their coffee and espresso, this is the machine for her. Most machines use a forced pressure mechanism to brew your coffee and espresso. That’s what I have and it’s loud, which can be a little much in the morning. The VertuoPlus uses a centrifuge action that spins the pod at up to 7000 rotations a minute–that’s over 115 times a second! This quieter spin brewing produces rich flavor and lots of crema on both espresso and coffee. It’s simple to operate and the water tank swivels so you can adjust its position to best fit your counter. It comes with a starter set of Nespresso pods, which are recyclable. A 30 Nespresso pod assortment is currently on sale for 44 percent off.
Price: $98.96 (50 percent off MSRP)

5. $120 Off Philips Sonicare Diamond Clean Rechargeable Toothbrush
Maybe not the most traditional gift, but a high-end toothbrush that looks as elegant as this is probably something that she has wanted but never splurged for herself. I featured this toothbrush in my guide to the Best Electric Toothbrushes of 2017. Originally $219.99, Amazon is offering 47 percent off for Black Friday. This is the most luxe electric toothbrush I have ever come across. That fancy-looking glass with rose gold accents is the charger. There’s a discreet cord off the back of it, and you can just set your brush in the glass and it charges. As classy as the charger is, this brush can go two weeks of regular use on a single charge so you won’t always need it plugged in. It also comes with a second charger case for travel. At 517 sonic strokes every second and with five cleaning modes, this toothbrush gives you a superior clean feeling.
It’s also available in amethyst, pink, white, and black–but why pass up this rose gold?
Price: $99.99 (47 percent off MSRP)

6. 50 Percent Off Orange Crystal Frame Ring in Size 7
Think you can’t wow someone with jewelry without breaking the bank? This statement ring from Reeds is unique enough to get you a dramatic reaction. The deep amber-orange crystals at the center have a raw, right off the cave wall, type of look and they’re surrounded by diamond cut brown crystals. The ring is brass plated with yellow gold, so no this ring isn’t 100 percent pure gold or covered in expensive gems, but with how interesting it is her friends will be too busy fawning over it to notice or care. This design is also available as a matching pendant.
Price: $25 (50 percent off MSRP)

7. 34 Percent Off Fitbit Alta HR in Black
This is the lowest price the Alta HR has ever been offered on Amazon at over $50 off the original $149.95. If your someone is looking to upgrade their fitness monitor, the Alta HR from Fitbit is the slimmest, sleekest model yet. Fitbit shrank their continuous heart rate monitor and added it to their slim Alta Fitbit from last year giving you the ability to track your heart rate, resting and during workouts, with the most discreet, comfortable Fitbit yet. It comes with all the standard features like step, calorie, and distance tracking, clock, alarms, and an extended battery life of around seven days.
The neat newer features include tracking your sleep quality overnight, alerts about calls, texts, and calendar events, button-less touch screen display, activity reminders, interchangeable band choices, and the ability to recognize specific exercises like running and biking when you workout and logs them automatically. It’s water-resistant but not waterproof so this isn’t for swimming or showers. The touch screen can be a little finicky, so if that’s a concern, the Fitbit Charge 2 has almost identical features with a bigger screen–and it’s also 34 percent off this Black Friday.
Price: $99 (34 percent off MSRP)

8. 25 Percent Off Elizabeth Arden Always Red Femme Gift Set
Save 25 percent off the normal price of $69 for this Always Red Femme gift set from Elizabeth Arden. This fragrance is a deep, sensual floral, like a flower garden at midnight. There are deep notes of moss and patchouli with a heart of black currant and bright peach blossom. The gift set comes with the Always Red Femme 1.7 ounce Eau de Toilette Spray and Always Red Femme Body Souffle. The Eau de Toilette Spray alone in 3.3 ounces (less than double the size from this gift set) goes for $65 so this gift gets you a lot for your money. Plus the set comes in a colorful Christmas-ready gift box.
