Here's what you need to buy to buy on Black Friday

Although the Christmas season may seem far away, global supply chain issues are already causing shortages on products from sportswear to Christmas trees. In response to the above, many retailers are already kicking off Cyber Monday and Black Friday sales and encouraging shoppers to purchase gifts earlier.

Just this week, Amazon hosted Deal Days and Target introduced Epic Deal Days. During Amazon's pre-Black Friday sale, some deals will only last 24 hours while others will be available through the rest of the month and into November. For example, the Always Pan is being cut by $30.

It carries four products: coveralls and crew length socks, as well as TOMS leather Mallow shoe and dark denim Alpargatas shoe. Items feature precious colors like blue and brown, as well as pops of yellow and the words Zero Mettle printed on them, which the brands said reminds people of the strength it takes to stay true to yourself. Proceeds from the collection will be donated to ProjectQ, a LA-based nonprofit that supports LGBTQ youth of color.

The first Elevate collection from Stitch Fix includes designs of six entrepreneurs of color, who were selected to participate in the brand s Elevate grant and mentorship program. The collection offers clothing and accessories for women from brands like Chloe Kristyn and Busayo, as well as size-inclusive clothing from Diarrablu, including a blouse and wrap dress. You can also shop for men shoes from Marcus Alexander and women shoes from Sarep Rose in addition to leather bags from Kahmune. All the Items in the collection are available for purchases directly through Stitch Fix's new Freestyle platform.

Expanding on its collection of period products, which include period wear, Knix launched three types of reusable pads: regular midsize overnight extra long and petite compact All pads are built with wings and a hook and eye clasp to keep them in place, and feature four layers of leakproof technology. The overnight reusable pads absorb up to 12 teaspoons of blood, while the regular and petite reusable pads absorb up to 20 tablespoons. Reusable pads are machine washable and come in a pack of three.

The Reversible Pillow by Allswell features a cooling side and a plush side, which allow you to flip it over as your sleeping preferences change. The cooling side is designed with premium memory foam and a cooling mesh cover, which features a phase changing material that reacts to your body heat to keep an optimal temperature. The plush side is quilted with a down-alternative fiber filled and has a soft, double layer for additional cushioning. The pillow comes with an antibacterial cover and is both machine washable and dryer safe.

The Flex Travel Blanket is a new packing material from Gravity, weighs 10 pounds and comes with a carrying case so you can roll it in your carry-on luggage or toss it in your weekender bag. The blanket is 6 inches smaller than the brand Gravity Blanket. Plus like Gravity s other weighted products, including robes and sleeping masks, the blanket utilizes Deep Touch Pressure Stimulation, mimicking the feeling of being hung, that will help you feel relaxed and reduce stress and anxiety. Stitching keeps the breathable dry glass beads inside the blanket evenly distributed and it features weighted material. The Flex Travel Blanket is machine washable and comes in two colors: Black and Grey.

Although it sold out on the brand s website soon after it launched, Alpyn Beauty Triple-C Brightening Bounce Cream is available at Sephora. The cream is designed to moisturize skin while smoothing and reducing the appearance of facial wrinkles as well as enhance your complexion. The product is formulated with three forms of vitamin C, aloe and wild chokecherry, an antioxidant. Sephora said the cream - which is packaged with recyclable materials — is useful for dryness, dark spots and loss of firmness and meets the retailer's Clean Planet Positive standard.
