ThirdLove 24/7 Classic Uplift Plunge Bra

bf editors picks thirdlove uplift bra
THIRDLOVE

"I have a habit of holding on to the same bras for waaaaaaaaay way too long — mostly because they're expensive, but also because it can be tricky to find my size from a good-quality brand. I've been meaning to try ThirdLove for awhile now after hearing tons of good reviews, so I'm finally going to treat myself to some new bras from their Black Friday sale (up to 60 percent off site-wide, with bras starting at $28 — killer deal, right?)." —Allie Strickler, news editor

Olive and June The Mani System

bf editors picks olive and june

"Pre-COVID, I sat at my corner salon every 2-3 weeks for a gel mani, religiously — it's safe to say my nail game hasn't been the same for most of 2020. While my salon has reopened, and I'm still going for the occasional gel mani, I just can't justify the same level of upkeep and cost while WFH. Since I'm like a toddler coloring outside the lines when I try to paint my own nails, I could use all the help I can get. So, I'm asking Santa for Olive and June's mani system, which will hopefully set me up for success. I'm particularly curious if the brand's patented "Poppy" polish bottle handle will actually help me paint both hands perfectly, as advertised. Either way, my hands need the cuticle serum more than anything — winter's cold temps dry out my hands like crazy." —Alyssa Sparacino, digital deputy editor

Kari Traa Lokke Half-Zip Baselayer Top

bf editors picks kari traa baselayer
AMAZON

"I tend to get a little stir crazy during winter months, and I still like to be active — so when I'm not cuddled up under a blanket watching Netflix, you can find me hiking or hitting the slopes on the weekend. I'm obsessed with Kari Traa baselayers, because the wool thermals keep me super toasty when layered beneath puffers and ski pants (even in freezing temps!), and yet they're cute and warm enough to be worn on their own. I have a couple of the brand's half-zips and the fun, Nordic-inspired patterns look just as great peeking out of my ski jacket as they do after I've shed some layers for après at the end of the day. With a deal this good, I'm looking to stock up on a few more!" —Susan Brickell, senior editor

Jaybird VISTA Bluetooth Waterproof Wireless In-Ear Headphones

bf editors picks jaybird earbuds
AMAZON

"These earbuds have been a game-changer this quarantine. They're lightweight, comfortable, and can withstand any jumping, twisting, or punching my at-home workouts throw at them. Last week I logged six sopping wet miles in the rain, yet the waterproof buds didn't budge or break and the sound was crystal clear. I also love that they come in a charging case with a string that can be attached to your keys to ensure you never leave them at home. Not only are they a steal for under $100 (plus free Prime delivery!), but with over 3,000 near-perfect ratings on Amazon, I know I'm not alone in saying that the Black Friday price tag makes them a deal you can't pass up." —Marietta Alessi, senior social media manager

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Fuchsia Gift Edition

bf editor picks dyson
NORDSTROM

"Now that I'm not going to salons anymore, getting a quality blow dry at home has become my mission. The Dyson Supersonic is legendary, and I can't wait to get my hands on it just in time for Zoom holiday celebrations. While it might not be ~on sale~, the 1,400 near-perfect reviews make it feel worth the splurge to treat myself this season. Plus, if you purchase it through Nordstrom right now, you get a free gift — Christmas has come early this year!" —Sade Strehlke, site director

Sweaty Betty Power Workout Ankle Leggings

bf editors picks sweaty betty leggings
NORDSTROM

"For as long as I can remember, I've hated working out in leggings. I always feel like I'm overheating and can't stand the feeling of sweaty fabric glued to my thighs. But these beauts from Sweaty Betty were a total game-changer. (Not to mention, Jennifer Aniston is a fan of the brand!) The fabric is ultra-lightweight to keep you cool, moisture-wicking to prevent sweat from building up, and extremely comfortable to wear outside of the gym. Plus, the slightly high-waisted style means they stay put while I squat, lunge, and burpee. I have one pair right now, but with this huge of a deal, there's no reason *not* to buy another." —Megan Falk, editorial assistant

Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee and Espresso Maker

bf-editors-picks-nespresso-machine

"I plan on buying most of my holiday gifts this year from small women- and POC-owned businesses, but this is one thing that's worth snagging during Black Friday. After however-many months of quarantine and making my own coffee every AM, I'm starting to miss the office coffee machine (and it wasn't even that good); I just want the option of rolling out of bed and making a quick cup without having to stand over my French press or pour-over for 10 minutes. I know I'll use this machine for every dollar that it's worth. Fancy coffee, here I come!" —Lauren Mazzo, web editor

Seally Premium Posturepedic Exuberant II 15" Ultra Plush Mattress in Full

bf-editors-picks-sealy-mattress

"I'm right in the middle of a move — and it's perfect timing to pick up some home necessities while they're on major sale. After four years on a cheap, stiff-as-bricks mattress, I'm leveling up. I decided on this one since Sealy Posturepedic mattresses are the most comfortable mattresses I've tested out. It's 'ultra plush' which is the softest category of the brand's mattresses and has three layers of memory foam, so I fully anticipate feeling like I'm being cradled by clouds. Thanks to a Macy's Black Friday deal, I bought the mattress at 40 percent off with free white glove delivery and a box spring thrown in." —Renee Cherry, staff writer

Aerie Sherpa Top and Boxers

bf-editors-picks-aerie-sherpa-set

"Spending the majority of 2020 at home, I've been wearing this loungewear set on repeat. The sherpa fabric makes it unbelievably soft and cozy — perfect for chilly winter nights — and the leopard pattern is super cute. While it's great for at-home hangouts, I've even worn the sweatshirt on a few hikes and it proved to be a great warm layer. Right now, you can score both the top and boxer on sale for Black Friday — while I already own the green set, I'm adding the natural pairing to the cart this week. It's the ultimate gift for friends, sisters and anyone who loves to live a plush life." —Marietta Alessi, senior social media manager

Nest Grapefruit Classic Candle

bf-editors-picks-nest
DERMSTORE

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas quarantine again. And while spending every waking moment indoors might not be high on my (or anyone's) wish list, buckling down is way better with a good smelling candle (or three) — which is exactly why I'm coveting this grapefruit candle from Nest. It's housed in a beautiful glass jar that I will definitely upcycle, and it boasts a refreshing citrus-y scent that's sure to brighten and freshen up my apartment, no matter how many consecutive days spent in the same space." —Elizabeth Bacharach, associate editor

Eddie Bauer K-6 Boot

bf editors pick eddie bauer boot
EDDIE BAUER

"I recently took my first solo vacation: an eight-day hiking trip in Arizona and Utah. Not only did I need to mentally prepare for driving (and figuring out directions with a paper map, because no Wi-Fi!) and hitting the trails on my own, but also I had to pack the appropriate gear so I didn't end the day with sore feet and blisters. These Eddie Bauer hiking boots were incredibly comfortable, durable, and stood up to every climate and terrain I tested them in — from warm, meandering trails in Zion to snowy, wet hikes in Bryce Canyon. Plus, they looked damn good in all my photos and I got so many compliments on them from other hikers. While they're perfect for hiking, I'm also looking forward to rocking these stylish babies in the city, now that it's cold." —Susan Brickell, senior editor

Girlfriend Collective Compressive High-Rise Legging

bf editors pick girlfriend collective legging
GIRLFRIEND COLLECTIVE

"This ethically-made activewear line, which features models of all sizes, is my go-to for leggings. Soft, comfortable, durable, and stylish, you look good and feel good when you shop from Girlfriend Collective — plus, the brand's limited edition "Saddle" color is super fun! Right now, you can take 30 percent off your purchase for Black Friday, so there's really no reason not to restock your activewear drawer." —Sade Strehlke, site director
