Black Friday is here and these are the best deals of 2021, handpicked by Marie Claire editors…
With the Black Friday long weekend in full swing and Christmas sneaking up on us, it’s time to prepare for the biggest deals and discounts on the internet. Whether you’re looking for something special to give to your loved ones on December 25th, or fancy treating yourself after a pretty shocking two years, there are so many brands and retailers out there offering top products for a fraction of the price.

If you’re after designer discounts there are saving to be had, from Gucci Black Friday deals and the best Selfridges deals to the top savings at The Outnet – as well as mega bargains to be found for the beauty buffs (think Glossier goodies if you want to update your skincare or makeup bag, and Dyson Black Friday deals if you’re after excellent beauty tech).
And for lovers of luxury candles, we’re highlighting all the best deals from Jo Malone and Diptyque (and Diptyque dupes) to Neom and Yankee.

And that’s not all. From the John Lewis Black Friday offers to slashed prices at Liberty, there really is something for everyone when it comes to one of the biggest shopping dates in the diary.

But how can you find the best deals without spending hours searching online? That’s where we come in.
