I usually avoid shopping on Black Friday, mostly because of the timidity that got me cut from high-school volleyball. If you’re like me, check out these online bargains. They could all make great gifts—and you can buy them without leaving the comfort of your living room.
This Linden Street Bird hurricane candleholder from JC Penney is marked down to $19.99, less than a third of its original price. With an ivory pillar candle inside, it could make your coffee table or dining room table feel cozy. The glass is textured to create more reflections and refraction of light.
As bright and off-beat as a Dr. Seuss illustration, this tasseled seat cushion from Pier One could liven up a dinner party. One side is festive red, the other more muted burgundy. It’s now $16, marked down from $20.
Another elegant gift—or the finishing touch to your own living room—might be this candleholder from Crate & Barrel. The pinecone design, which can accommodate three taper candles, makes it a great wintry piece, and the chestnut-brown finish is warm and subtle. Plus, the sale price keeps it under $20—perfect for gift exchanges.
