With constant talk of shipping delays impacting the holiday season, many retailers — and experts we’ve previously consulted — recommend shopping for gifts early this year. If you plan to get ahead this weekend, be sure to check out our coverage around early Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales across retailers. You’ll find deals on tech, home goods, apparel and more. To help guide your shopping, we’re rounding up gift ideas for those on your list like grandmas, teens and many others — here are all of our gift guides this year. New launches like those below, as well as from Peloton, DJI and more, are also great options.
New launches from Casper, Allswell and SNOW
Here are new and notable launches from reader favorite brands and others we think you’ll want to know about.
Casper recently introduced three new pillows: The Hug Body Pillow, The Hybrid Pillow and The Backrest Pillow. The Hug Body Pillow’s body-length shape is meant to fit between your arms or legs, and it was designed to promote proper alignment for side sleepers, Casper says. Meanwhile, The Backrest Pillow boasts an ergonomic teardrop shape to provide lumbar support, according to the brand, and you can stand it up against your bed’s headboard or the wall, or lie it flat on the bed. Finally, The Hybrid Pillow sports a foam outer layer to help keep its shape, while moldable fiber inside provides a plush feel. It’s available in Standard and King sizes in low- or mid-loft options.
Expanding beyond sleep products for people, Allswell launched pet beds in two styles, both of which are stuffed with micro plush material and feature a removable, machine-washable cover. The beds are also both built with handles on the sides so you can move them around your home, and non-skid bottoms to help them stay in place. The Premium Round Pet Bed is donut-shaped, allowing your furry friend to curl up in the middle of it on faux shag fabric. The Premium Rectangle Curved Bed is designed for medium-sized dogs and offers support through memory foam bolsters, Allswell says.
With blue LED lights built into the brush head, SNOW’s new electric toothbrush gradually whitens teeth as it cleans using sonic technology, says the brand. The toothbrush offers a 2-minute timer with 30 second intervals and four modes: Clean, whiten, polish and sensitive. It comes with a charging base and two LED brush heads.

Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2021
As we previously reported, retailers have been extending the length of their Black Friday and Cyber Monday events in recent years, and starting them earlier, turning what used to be a daylong event into an entire promotional season. And with the ongoing pandemic causing retailers like Walmart, Best Buy, Kohl’s and more to close their doors for in-person shopping on Thanksgiving once again, many are promoting online sales and deal events, some of which started as early as October. Offering early sales and deals is both a response to consumer interest in shopping early and global supply chain issues, which are causing shipping delays, low inventory and other challenges during the busy retail season.
To make sure you’re prepared for Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year, we’re bringing you information about retailer-specific sales and rounding up worthwhile deals using price trackers like Honey and CamelCamelCamel. We’re also talking to experts about their shopping tips, and advice for using different payment options. Here are some resources to get started from our Black Friday and Cyber Monday hubs — we’ll be regularly updating you with more coverage:
