Cyber Monday 2023 editor's picks
To start? Hair necessities! "My hair is getting longer, so it’s time for some larger claw clips!" said editorial assistant Sierra Hoeger. "This 3-pack at Target caught my eye because of the fun shapes and colors, plus it’s less than $10."
SEO associate editor Kamari Stewart picked up this mascara for her little sister — her second- or third time repurchasing for her! According to the brand, it offers “extreme length,” and no clumps. Best of all, it’s under $10 for Black Friday/Cyber Monday!
Editor and dog mom Vivien Moon has her fur baby in mind when it comes to her Cyber Monday purchases. "The other day I saw a dog run off and his owner had to chase him through the park and that was the reminder I needed to get mine this Apple AirTag holder so if something happens, I can at least track him," she said.
Beyond being good for dog walks, Moon notes this holder “is also just a great thing to have for any important things like a kid’s backpack, your purse, car, etc.”
"What is life if you can’t have a little fun and this jumbo scrunchie screams FUN!" Hoeger emphasized. "They come in such fun colors and I put it on ASAP when I get home — and can confirm it’s comfortable and doesn’t tug on my hair."
“I’ve had my eye on these earrings since the collection first dropped and I immediately purchased once they went on sale,” says Stewart of these festive pair that’s available for under $10.
While associate social media editor Dani Musacchio thinks her Cyber Monday purchases are "not very exciting compared to everyone else's," she's personally thrilled to get her go-to socks while they're available at a 50% discount.
Stewart knows that the best time to buy activewear is during the winter as the brands make way for new inventory. She scored these breathable workout shorts for nearly 80% off with code EXTRA25.
If you're shopping for coffee, production coordinator Camryn Privette recommends this medium-roast selection by Chamberlain Coffee. She says, "It’s 30% off until EOD and my new favorite coffee brand." Privette continues, "I’ve watched Emma on YouTube for years and when she came out with a coffee brand I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. This coffee has single handedly gotten me through Black Friday and Cyber Monday."
After breaking her last one, associate editor Emma Stessman is hoping to grab a new Bentgo salad container. "It’s great because it has separate compartments and microwaveable components, so you can heat up your proteins or grains and you don't end up with a soggy salad!" she says.
Per her mom's request, Moon will be grabbing electric hand warmers for her dad this year. According to the brand, the Amazon No. 1 bestseller has three temperature settings and heats on both sides.
Stewart also recommends this jacket, which features a quilted, zip-up front with two pockets. The long sleeves also have thumb holes to help keep you warm. It's currently 60% off!
Associate editor Allie Wise has accessories like this "adorable" silky scarf on her mind this Cyber Monday. "It looks like a million bucks without spending it, as this scarf is 60% off and available in four flirty colors," she emphasized.
“My fav bra is on sale, so I bought another color!” Cocchi Zabloudil said about this Cyber Monday deal at Victoria’s Secret. “I love it because it’s unlined, so there’s no bulky padding.”
Have you seen a cuter puzzle? One of my (Bender's) favorite wintertime activities is cozying up with a piping mug of mulled cider and a challenging jigsaw that I could dedicate hours to, so this pooch-themed option from Piecework — currently available for 30% off — makes me wag my theoretical tail.
Another item Ricevuto is hoping to grab more of — and on deal — is these collagen under eye masks. "I’ve been putting these depuffing eye gels on every morning, they work so well!" she says.
Senior partnerships editor Francesca Cocchi Zabloudil is using this opportunity to stock up on beauty essentials like her favorite foundation from Fenty Beauty. It's currently 25% off at several retailers including Sephora.
Commerce editor and producer Julie Ricevuto says she’s had her eye on this Bala Power Ring for a while, so she’ll be picking one up while it’s on sale. The ring weighs five pounds and can be used for a variety of workouts, says the brand. You can grab it on sale on the retailer’s site with code PLAYDAY30.
My (Bender) parents recently moved out of state and are constantly craving the tastes they miss so much from New York City. Until they find a quality Italian bakery around their new home, I'm more than happy to ship them some of their favorite cookies and sweets from the legendary Veniero's to hold them over. I may also get myself something as well, since Goldbelly's Cyber Monday sale is sitewide using the code GOLDFRIDAY20 at checkout.
Like his aunt, my (Garlin) nephew is obsessed with "Guardians of the Galaxy," so I bought him this baby Groot Lego set. The brand says it comes with over 400 pieces and an "Awesome Mix Vol. 2" play cassette tape. I'll definitely be defending my title as "favorite aunt" with this gift.
One of Stewart's sisters requested these fleece-lined Nike joggers for her birthday this year (which, conveniently, lands on Cyber Monday), so she's excited to snatch them up while they're 25% off.
Deputy editorial director Ali Deabler is prioritizing holiday shopping for the people in her life during Cyber Monday. She intends on getting her boyfriend these bestselling Oofos recovery slides — a Start TODAY x Shop TODAY Wellness Award winner this year — while they're 20% off.
If you haven't tried reusable snack bags yet, you're missing out. They're so easy to clean, minimize waste and ultimately can save you money. That's why Hoeger is hoping to grab more while they're on sale for Cyber Monday.
"I got my first couple from an event and have been loving them, not only for my lunches but also for packing snacks during travel!" says Hoeger.
Cocchi Zabloudil revealed that she emailed her husband the link to this Spanx turtleneck "just in case he needs a gentle Christmas gift suggestion."
Hoeger is also adding these pants from Outdoor Voices to her Christmas wishlist. She’s owned a pair since last summer and can’t wait to add another to her collection.
“Farm Rio rarely does discounts and when they do, you can’t miss out,” commerce writer Jannely Espinal said. “This mushroom knit sweater is the perfect addition to my winter wardrobe and adds a bold flair to my denim and pants collection. Also, their material is high-quality and can’t wait to feel cozy in this chic design. It’s like wearing art on my body!”
Editor Nina Bradley has been "waiting patiently" for Spanx's viral faux leather leggings to go on deal. "I swear by these for quick and easy outfits for fall," she said. "I have a few pair and love them but need another."
“This is my mom’s favorite perfume and I buy her one every year so it’s time for a restock,” says Stewart. “I’m always hoping and praying it’s on sale.” She was excited (and thankful) to see that Amazon is offering a discount on this during Cyber Monday.
“Hope my sister doesn’t read this, but she loves Alo so I’m planning on getting her some things from their Cyber Monday sale!” Stessman mentioned. “I have a pair of their leggings made with the Airlift fabric and she borrowed them last time she visited and said she loved the material, so I think I’ll grab her a pair of these.”
Bradley says that the Bissell Little Green carpet cleaner is one of the best products she's ever purchased. "My mother borrowed it for so long that I ended up letting her keep it. Now, I have to buy another one." At $89, it's at one of the lowest prices we've seen it.
“I love running, but haven’t found headphones that work great during my super sweaty long runs, however I heard the Shokz Open Run headphones are ideal for runners. So, I’m hoping they’ll be on sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday!” says Ricevuto.
Annie Shigo, our commerce editorial assistant, recommends these cozy, heeled boots by Crocs. She's "obsessed with these Crocs," and says they "make for the perfect cozy shoe that are a little elevated from your typical Crocs."
I (Bender) really want these waterproof boot-style sneaks. Every pair of shoes I’ve bought from Sorel has been ridiculously comfortable, so I have high hopes for these, too.
SEO writer Jannely Espinal is going to scour Cyber Monday deals for holiday decorations, including an artificial Christmas tree. Right now, Amazon is selling one at 24% off! And this option is pre-lit, so you don’t have to wrestle with tangled lights.
Commerce writer Danielle Murphy has family on her mind when it comes to her Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping. “My mother’s birthday happens to fall on Thanksgiving, so I bought her this coat from Splendid [thanks to early Black Friday deals],” she said. “Everything on there is incredible, so I’m already looking into getting more gifts while most items are 40% off.”
Since our deals editor Rebecca Brown found herself in her “smoothie era,” she really wants this aesthetically pleasing Beast Blender. According to the brand, the sleek blender can pulse or blend frozen fruits, veggies and ice.
Hoping to get ahead of her New Year's solution of sleeping more effectively in 2024, Deabler's also nabbing Hatch's popular sunrise alarm and sleep assistant while it's $40 off during Cyber Monday.
Privette also recommends this "all-in-one" Nutribullet Triple Prep System. She says it's "great for those with limited counter space and what not," continuing, "Whenever I saw this in action IRL, I was seriously blown away since it’s super quite too."
Moon has been hoping to score a deal on a new pet carrier since her pup is not a fan of the current one. She says she loves this one by Roverlund set because it also comes with accessories such as a collapsible dog bowl and a food storage bag.
“Holiday travel is stressful enough so I want to make this as seamless as possible for my dog,” says Moon.
For the audiophile in your life, production coordinator Camryn Privette calls these Marshall headphones "by far the best I've ever used! My dad was really eyeing them on a recent trip home so I’m going to pick him up a pair."
Bradley has an Oura Ring on her wish list this year, which also happens to be a Shop TODAY Wellness Award winner. This tech gadget can measure your steps, heart rate, sleep cycle, body temperature and more. This could make a neat gift for a tech guru, or fitness and wellness lover.
"I am getting this for my mom for Christmas because she, like me, loves a good skin care device," Moon adds. "I use it myself and it’s the easiest step in my routine and, according to the brand, it helps with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and stimulating collagen production. I literally have to do so little to use it so it’s perfect for when I don't feel like doing a lot but still want to give my skin some TLC." It's currently discounted by 25% with code BFCM.
