I hope you all had the BEST Holiday weekend!! I sure did, we spent the weekend with my parents in Philly and it was so nice to get some low key time with them and Logan. Grandparents are the best! Now, as you all know, today is the biggest shopping day of the whole year. I know all of this can be a bit overwhelming, so I’ve tried to break down the sales you should really focus on. Last week, I wrote about all of the best Black Friday Deals in this post. Most of the sales detailed in that post are still ongoing, so I would still check that out that post. But for today’s post, I thought I would take a different approach and share what I am shopping for this Cyber Monday, along with some of the deals not to miss! Some of these items in my cart are personal items for me, lots for Logan, and some gifts for family and friends. Would love to hear what you guys are shopping for today!
1. Furniture and Home
We have been itching to do a refresh on some furniture items in our apartment so I’ve been scouring the various deals going on today. There are some INSANE deals, listing my favs below.
West Elm – West Elm has a really good percentage off the more you spend. If you spend over $500, it is 20% off, and over $1,000, 25% off. Our dining room table pictured above is already marked down to under $700!
A couple months ago I was fortunate enough to work with Allswell and fell in love with their mattress. Truly, Matt and I can’t see ourselves purchasing another brand. Their sheets are also my favorite and I have swapped all of ours too! They almost never go on sale but are offering 20% off for Cyber Monday.
One thing I’ve been working on is doing some more framing of pictures around the apartment, both of Logan and some shots from our travels. I just ordered a few from Framebridge, which is having a pretty good sale with, 20% off any black frames (which is what I was on the hunt for).
Pottery barn is having is also having a great deal with up to 40% off. We redid our bedroom last year (pictured here) with all Pottery Barn items and found somethings we really loved, and the quality has held up great.
2. A Fun Ornament
Every year my girlfriends and I get together to celebrate the holidays with lots of good food, wine, and an ornament swap. Like a white elephant gift swap, you have an opportunity to steal someone else’s ornament, so it’s always a competition to find the best ornament each year. I always go ALL OUT. One of my go-to spots to look is Anthropologie and you can get 30% off right now. I feel like so many of my girlfriends would love this coffee one, and I think this plaid flannel one is so cute. I also have this wishbone which is dainty and would be cute to tie on the outside of a gift. A girlfriend just got us the “K” one pictured above and it’s a great new addition to the tree!
3. A Festive Outfit
My father in-law is retiring at the end of this year and this weekend we are going upstate for a big party to celebrate. I’m so excited for him and the weekend, but still need something to wear! Given the time of year, I’m thinking I want to wear something festive, but still a little conservative, since it is with his office after all! So needless to say I will not be wearing the skirt pictured above, but I did want to share that its 40% off today along with the rest of French Connection’s site. I love this look for a non-office party.
Here are some of the pieces (all on sale) that I’m considering for this weekend:
- J. Crew – This gold metallic skirt I think could fit the occasion! The J. Crew sale is wild and 50% off your whole purchase.
- Nordstrom – The Nordstrom Cyber sale has a lot of good picks that are up to 50% off. This dress, marked down to $35 is a cute option.
- Bloomingdales – How cute is this smocked snake print number? Add a leather jacket and you are good to go! 25% off too!
I also tried on these two dresses that I’m considering but was waiting for them to go on sale. They can now be snagged for 30% off! The maxi dress may be the one I go with!
I’m oddly obsessed with this dress and don’t know why! It may be the winner for Saturday. I love the shimmery details in it.
I think this one is a fun little party number as well! Love the tiered detailing.
4. Winter Boots
I’ve been on the hunt for a chic, but practical pair of winter boots for an upcoming ski weekend and thinking of snagging this pair (similar to the ones pictured above), which are 50% off for cyber Monday. I thought these boots usually sold out really quick, but looks like still in stock! Below are some other good options on sale.
Up to 50% off on these Sperry Saltwater Duck Boots (as well as their entire site)!
5. Travel Deals!
Ok, I’ve never thought of booking a vacation on Cyber Monday, but after doing some research we are thinking of trying to use today to book an upcoming winter getaway at a discount. This article from Conde Nast is helpful in listing some of the best deals out there. If any of you have ever used Cyber Monday to book a travel deal, I’d love to hear about your experience!
6. Baby Items for Expecting Friends
Ok this category is going to be a long one, both because I have a lot of expecting friends right now, so doing a lot of shopping in this category and also because SO many of my favorite things for Logan are on major sale! Listing items I’m snagging today on sale to gift later and a few we have and love.
I talked about Tubby Todd before and recently in my “tips for traveling with a baby” blog post, but they are our favorite! Everything smells amazing and have clean ingredients. They are offering two deals:
TUBBYBLACKFRIDAY2019 – 15% off anything under $100
TUBBYBLACKFRIDAY20 – 20% off $100+
I keep sharing Skip Hop, but they have so many great products for your baby! From a wipeable diaper changing pad to bath time to toys and activity centers, everything is great. They currently have 25% – 60% off and free shipping!
50% off everything at Gap Baby with code: GAPCYBER – love shopping here for Logan! Such cute boy clothes that can be worn over and over. Also snag free shipping with code: SENDIT
30% off + free shipping at H&M…their kids section is the best!! I always have WAY better luck online for them than in store!! I still have my fall haul for Logan saved on my Instagram Highlights, fyi!
8. Curling Iron
9. Spanx (duh)
I’ve pretty much told everyone around me my love for Spanx, and think I’ve convinced a few of family members they need to try the faux-leather pair (I wear a small) so plan to pick up some as gifts. They also make maternity which were AMAZING!! The whole site is 20% off right now! A bunch are on sale at Nordstrom as well, see here.
10. A Cozy Fleece
This zip-up was a big hit this season, and while I wish I was hear to report that this color was restocked, that’s sadly not the case. BUT when I went to go search for it, I noticed that some of the other colors are MAJORLY marked down (from $180 to $53.99). I actually love this olive color and also like the wine color on the multi-color one (a little pricier at $90 but still 50% off).
I also love this fleece and just saw that it’s 35% off and now under $50. I think it would make a perfect gift!
