There are always people on my Christmas list I don’t know how to shop for. I know their personalities and what they like, but I don’t know what they want. My mom is one that always falls into this category. My solution is to try to find as fun and interesting gifts as possible, but still remain practical. During my search for JCPenney Black Friday deals, I stumbled upon a few items that definitely fit the bill. But you have to be careful, their prices range from $20 to over $100.
Wal-Mart has had some epic holiday shopping news stories surrounding its sales for the last several years, the most infamous one sticking out in my mind being the Tickle Me Elmo incident of 1996 where a worker was trampled in the mad rush of parents to buy the toy. Some shoppers don’t want to deal with the chaos and are afraid to brave the aisles of Wal-Mart on Black Friday. But don’t worry, the super store has both in-store and online deals that will satisfy the at-home and the more adventurous in-store shopper this Black Friday. And, in some cases, you will save even more if you buy now, before the rush.
I love Target, but often times it is hit and miss with me. One month I’ll go in and find something I want in nearly every department, the next I can’t even find an acceptable T-shirt or throw pillow. But still, I love Target, so its Black Friday sales are very dear to me. Not only is this store having sales on items I have yet to find at other stores such as Wal-Mart and Best Buy, but it is also having extended deals and sales that go way beyond Black Friday weekend.
This year is not the first one where some stores have opened their doors to Black Friday shoppers Thanksgiving night, but this year is the first year Macy’s will be. Macy’s sales will be starting at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day this year where shoppers will be seeing discounts on most of its best selling merchandise.
Most of us have already made our Black Friday shopping lists, some slightly more spectacular than others. Mine mostly includes teas and mugs to give friends along with homemade biscotti. I always buy my Christmas gifts Black Friday weekend if I can because the sales make it easier, and I love shopping way too much to miss out on the biggest shopping day of the year. But there are some items on your list that you should avoid next weekend, and I’m here to tell you exactly what they are.

I love shopping for a great deal as much as the next person, and Black Friday is certainly the time to find super sales, but I’m starting to see our favorite retailers in the news for not-so-great deals.
With the gift-giving season behind us, the team at Viewpoints thought it would be helpful to take a look at the products people didn’t return to the store and are actually enjoying. Yes, it’s true. It’s possible to thrill someone with something they didn’t even ask for!
