As someone who spends all day every day scouring Amazon for the best deals, Black Friday is my Super Bowl.

My picks draw from many of the retailer’s categories, including fashion, beauty, home, and kitchen products.

If you’re looking for some guidance this Black Friday, keep scrolling through to check out the 16 Amazon deals I can’t resist.

Gap Long-Sleeve Waffle Henley

Just in time for Black Friday, Gap launched a storefront on Amazon that’s full of everyday basics. I was immediately drawn to this waffle-knit henley, which comes in five colors and is made from machine-washable jersey. As someone who works from home majority of the time, this top is the perfect comfy-cute option to pair with leggings, sweats, or jeans. And it’s even better with a $24 sale price.

 The Drop Blake Long Blazer

I have never added anything to my cart faster than this plaid blazer from The Drop. I’ve long been a fan of The Drop’s blazers, as they’re the perfect combination of sophisticated and trendy, but this is the first time I’ve seen a plaid version. I plan to wear it all winter with everything from casual jeans and T-shirts, to more formal midi skirts and cropped blouses. At 30 percent off, this blazer is definitely coming home with me.

Olaplex No.7 Hair-Bonding Treatment

I’ve been using the Olaplex No. 7 Hair-Bonding Treatment for years now, so I’m using Amazon’s Black Friday sale as an opportunity to stock up for less. Whenever I style my hair with hot tools, I make sure to use this oil first, so I get the shiniest, most healthy-looking locks possible. All you need is a couple drops of this oil to protect your hair from hot tools that go up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener

Another one of my tried-and-true beauty products, the OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener is on sale for 30 percent off its original price. I’m not kidding when I say this treatment gave me the strongest and longest nails I’ve had in years after just one week of use. And the best part: You can use it as a base coat under regular manis, so you don’t have to sacrifice colorful nails to try out the treatment.

WoodWick Fireside Medium Hourglass Candle

If you’re a candle fiend like me, you have to try out WoodWick candles. Just like the name suggests, the brand’s candles have wood wicks that make a calming, crackling sound like a fireplace when you light them, creating the perfect cozy vibe. Nothing brings me more joy than lighting a WoodWick candle in the wintertime while curling up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate and a cheesy movie. Now is the perfect time to get one for just $14.

Apple AirPods Pro Wireless Earbuds

I’ve been waiting for this day to finally invest in a new pair of AirPods Pro Wireless Earbuds. I’ve had the same pair for five years, and they were no longer holding a charge. This time around, I decided to step it up and get the Pros, which have customizable ear tips and noise-canceling capabilities. Apple products are rarely discounted, so I highly recommend grabbing the AirPod Pros for yourself or a lucky gift recipient while they’re still in stock and on sale for 20 percent off at Amazon.

Maybelline Lifter Lip Gloss

If a $7 lip gloss is good enough for Gigi Hadid, it’s good enough for me. The Maybelline Lifter Gloss comes in 19 shades and is formulated with hyaluronic acid to smooth and soften your lips. One shopper confirmed it’s “so moisturizing,” adding that it “gives the illusion of plumper lips without the tingle or burn” — and that’s enough to convince me to add the lip gloss to my Amazon cart.

Lightweight Woven Flannel Pajama Set With Shorts

I’m a hot sleeper, so even in the winter, I like to wear short pajamas. Usually, that means I miss out on seasonal sets in fun patterns — until now. Amazon made a flannel pajama set with short bottoms, and it’s on sale for just $21. I’m adding the cute polar bear print to my cart, but there are 12 more designs to choose from in sizes XXS through XXL.

Nostalgia Electric S'mores Maker

Making s’mores is one of my favorite parts of summer, so when I learned it could be a year-round tradition with this indoor s’mores maker, I was all over it. The kit comes with an electric, flameless heater and a set of two stainless steel roasting forks. All you have to do is plug  it into an outlet to use, and, according to a reviewer, it’s “easy to put together” and “easy to clean.” I know what I’ll be serving for dessert all year long.

Anne Klein Bracelet Watch

Since I already own an everyday watch, I’ve been looking for a nicer one to stack with bracelets for evenings out. Unsurprisingly, Amazon’s Black Friday sale came through with a two-tone Anne Klein style that’s going 52 percent off. Since it features both gold and silver accents, this bracelet watch is the perfect complement to any jewelry stack. Plus, the link chain is adjustable, so you can find your perfect fit. While I’m grabbing the watch for myself, it would make a great holiday gift, too.

Lorac Pro Contour Palette and Contour Brush

I’ve recently gotten into the world of contouring, so this Lorac palette and brush immediately caught my eye. It comes with six powder shades: three highlighters and three contours that suit a range of skin tones, along with an angled brush for easy application. Plus, the packaging explains where to place the shades, which is helpful for a newbie, like me. A shopper went so far as to call it the “best contour palette ever made,” adding that they’ve “tried lots of others,” but keep coming back to this one.

Amazon Essentials Puffer Jacket With Drawstring Waist

Let’s face it: Puffer jackets make most of us look like marshmallows. That’s why I was thrilled to find this Amazon Essentials coat, which has a drawstring waist that gives it some shape. The puffer comes in eight colors and patterns and sizes XS through XXL. Now on sale for $31, I couldn’t resist adding the jacket to my cart.

The Drop Meena Loose-Fit Open-Collar Pullover Sweater

If you ask me, you can never have too many sweaters, and this collared style from The Drop is the latest one to catch my attention. You can dress it down with jeans and sneakers or make it office-appropriate with a pair of tailored trousers and loafers. The sweater is made from a mix of polyester, acrylic, nylon, and wool, which a reviewer described as “soft and very comfortable.”

New Balance 237 V1 Classic Sneaker

I’m a big fan of New Balance sneakers, so I’ll take any opportunity to get a new pair. These gray and white trainers with a hint of light blue are the perfect addition to my wardrobe, since I can wear them with a wide range of outfits both now and into the spring. Plus, they’re made with the brand’s cushioned insoles that I know and love for all-day comfort.

The Drop Ibita High-Heel Side-Zip Ankle Boot

Another footwear find, these heeled booties from The Drop are the staple piece my winter wardrobe is missing. Available in five neutral shades, the boots have a faux leather upper with a side zipper for easy on-and-off and a 3-inch block heel. I plan to wear them with everything from jeans and a T-shirt to a midi dress and a leather jacket for an instantly elevated look.

Bissell Little Green Multi-Purpose Portable Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner

Never did I think I would be so excited about a carpet cleaner, but here I am, fan-girling over the Bissell Little Green machine. The cleaning device is an Amazon best-seller with nearly 38,000 five-star reviews from shoppers who called it “life changing” and “reliable” for getting stains out. As someone who frequently spills food and drinks on the rugs in my apartment, I have a feeling I’m going to love having this device on hand. And now is the time to grab it for a discount before it sells out.
