November 8, 2023 – 4 min read

Black Friday is the perfect time to do your Christmas shopping.

Christmas shopping in November? What?! It might seem early, but as the old saying goes, the early bird catches the worm. Or in this case, the early bird catches the sales!

With proper planning, you can get your gifts sorted, avoid the huge crowds looking for last-minute gifts come Christmas Eve, and even have them arrive on your doorstep – or pick them up in-store via Click & Collect.

Nab family and friends the perfect gift a little bit earlier than usual by following these very simple tips and tricks to get the most out of the Black Friday sales.

When Is Black Friday?

Originating in the US and taking place on the Friday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year as stores offer enormous sales on items big and small. In 2023, Black Friday falls on 24 November in Australia.

Make Your List, And Check It Twice

Has a family member or friend made mention of something they’ve always wanted? Do they desperately need an upgrade on something? What are their hobbies? Interests? What do they love doing?

These are the key questions to think about when making a Christmas gift list for your family and friends.

Once you’ve made your notes, work these into a casual conversation (don’t make it obvious!) to discover whether they have made that upgrade or bought that item. This will provide you with valuable intel to narrow down your target items.

And if you’re still short on ideas, check out our various gift guides including our mega guide to Christmas Gifting.

Do this and you’ll be well on your way to becoming everyone’s favourite by buying the perfect Christmas gifts!

Organise Early Delivery

Organising your Christmas gifts during the Black Friday sales will allow plenty of time for delivery, which can be the most challenging part of online shopping. With delays and long delivery timelines anticipated Australia-wide at Christmas, it’s important to ensure that you’re not left scrambling. No-one wants to hit the shops last-minute on *shudder* Christmas Eve.
