Wayfair, a favorite among NBC News Shopping readers, is helping you ring in the holidays with their Holiday Gift Guide. The hub offers sales on home goods, appliances, decor and more, in addition to its Early-Access Black Friday deals. Like Wayfair, other retailers are likewise aiming to help make your gift buying easier this year with their own gift guides including REI, Nordstrom, Sephora and Walmart. With thousands of Black Friday sales and deals across plenty of retailers, it may be a good time to do some early holiday shopping right now — as NBC News previously reported, UPS and FedEx anticipate a so-called “shipageddon,” specifically concerned that as many as 7 million packages could be delayed each day. To help you simplify your shopping, we’ve gathered the best gift options from Wayfair below, including a guide at the end to category-specific gifts.
