With Black Friday just a few days away, there’s an avalanche of sales, deals and product launches available to shop now — and plenty more are on the way. Popular retailers like Target and Macy's have already begun hosting some of their biggest sales of the year on travel accessories, cookware, tech and more to give this holiday season (you can check out our gift guide hub for inspiration). Select reader favorite brands are also discounting some of their most popular products for the shopping holiday, including Stasher, Dyson, Brooklinen and Philips, the latter of which has committed a financial donation of over $300,000 as part of its partnership with men’s health charity Movember this month.

While there’s an array of online sales to take advantage of this week, several popular retailers — including Walmart and Best Buy — announced they’ll close their doors on Thanksgiving Day for the second year in a row due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. Target announced this week that it’ll keep stores closed on Thanksgiving for good, a move that could set a new precedent for in-store holiday shopping.

New launches from Away, Parade and Belkin

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are currently dominating the shopping space, we’re highlighting new launches we think you’ll want to know about, especially since you may be searching for holiday gifts in the weeks ahead.

Away The Three Pocket Duffle

A week after releasing two-toned colorways of the polycarbonate suitcases, Away just launched the second installment of its 2021 Holiday Collection featuring an array of new products and colorways. The Three Pocket Duffle, one of the brand’s latest releases, is crafted of leather and canvas, and features a large clam-shell opening, a padded 15-inch laptop compartment and slip pockets. In addition to the duffle, Away also launched a black leather version of its Zip Backpack and, all-new pebbled leather and canvas journal covers.

Belkin BOOST↑CHARGE PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with MagSafe

If you’re a fan of Apple products, Belkin recently released a 3-in-1 wireless charging pad — a reimagined design of its 3-in-1 stand — featuring Magsafe technology that’s compatible with the iPhone 12 and the latest iPhone 13 models. The magnetic charging pad can charge your iPhone, Apple Watch Series 7 and AirPods all at once. The stand lets you lay your devices flat, but also includes a “Nightstand mode” that lets you raise the charging module and use it as an alarm clock, according to the brand. Belkin also launched the magnetic BOOST↑CHARGE PRO Portable Fast Charger for the Apple Watch Series 7 that the brand says is compact for easy portability. You can purchase both charging pads on the Apple website or preorder directly from Belkin.

Parade The Lounge Set Cozy Waffle

Parade is marking its place in the loungewear scene with its first-ever Cozy Waffle loungewear collection.
