(As will my gift guides this year I had planned to re-shoot new photos but then I got that fun bout of strep so please enjoy this photo that is now THREE years old. 😆 Sadly these pajamas are very old, but Target has very similar ones!)
Happy Cyber Monday!
I hope you had the best Thanksgiving weekend. Ours was full of lazy family time, which is what everyone needed! It’s nice to be back into a routine today though. For those of you who are looking to knock out some shopping, I’m giving this post a refresh to reflect any updates in sales today!
2021 Curated Cyber Monday Guide
If you need more gifting ideas, make sure to check out my Gift Guide for Her, For Him, and For Baby/Kids! (You’ll notice that there are several favorites on both lists–some of our tried and true gifts are on sale now!)
On the other hand, I know many aren’t partaking in shopping this year, and that’s perfectly okay. In fact, that’s great–you should never compromise your financial goals because of FOMO! So either camp you fall into–I am here to support you!
The past couple of years have been hard on so many people, and if you are on a shopping freeze or strict budget this year, let me be the first to assure you–you don’t NEED anything in this guide–so shut this browser, and pick up a book, turn on a holiday movie–whatever! There are many other wonderful things you can be doing that won’t make you feel like you should spend money you don’t need to be spending!
Please keep in mind that many readers come to me for my sale guides and shopping recommendations–it’s a big part of my job, but that doesn’t mean I think everyone needs to partake. First and foremost, I want you to take care of YOU.
If you are in fact shopping this season and make a purchase using my links–THANK YOU! The commission I get from readers shopping through my affiliate links (at no cost to you, of course) makes up a big part of my income and contributes to my own bottom-line. I know most people don’t think about this, but I am also a small, woman-owned business, so I can’t thank you enough for your support!
Shop however you please:
There is a clickable Table of Contents below that will take you directly to the section you wish to shop first.
Note: I know in year’s past I have had a “shop by photo” option that includes photos of me in outfits, but honestly, with June and life just getting really crazy, I haven’t shopped as much or posted many outfits that include items that are still in stock or on sale, so that’s why you don’t see this option this year!

Favorite Big Retailers:
Favorite Big Retailers:
30% off site wide. I love their flannel pajamas and their budget-friendly skinny jeans! They are SO flattering! Also, this bodysuit would be perfect for a winter date night, as would this square necked top! Also, this little black dress looks perfect for weddings year round–and will work for both black tie and cocktail attire!
25% off site wide! Also, a super exciting update for those who have used my code this month or those who use my code now! Current code is JESSKEYSBF25, which matches the site wide sale BUT includes bigger perks:
For every $100 spent using my code JESSKEYSBF25, ABLE will put $10 into your Rewards account to use on a future purchase! The more you spend, the more you earn – so, if you spend $300, you’ll get $30 back into your Rewards account. Applies to all purchases made with the 25% off code in the month of November, and if multiple purchases are made from 11/11-11/29, totals will be combined!
Read my big ABLE favorites post right here (just make note the code change as that promo period was for 24 hours only!)
Up to 50% off! If you want affordable loungewear, this is the place to shop! The best leggings–their Offline leggings are only $26 right now. They’re buttery soft (identical to Align legging material!) They also have SO many cute holiday pajama sets!
Shop all their Cyber Monday deals on this page and will be continuously updated. Sonicare toothbrushes are on sale, as well as my favorite wireless True & Co bra! Also, the best ever Amazon tunic turtleneck sweater is marked down (I have it in two colors–runs big, size down!) Also-HYDROFLASK is 25% off! My favorite water bottle ever! (Includes the sport cap, too!) Kindle is also marked down and the best gift ever in my opinion.
My #1 favorite clean beauty brand! 15% off site-wide and free shipping! Check out my *very curated* list of favorites here! I love their Countertime Mini set (which is the anti-aging line I use and a lot less expensive than the full line if you’ve been wanting to try!) They have a 60-day return policy too which is always great when trying out new skincare products!
30% off site-wide! Neal loves pretty much everything they make and a massive chunk of his closet is Bonobos, so if you’re looking for stylish, not-too-expensive, but well-made clothing, look no further than Bonobos!
I have never seen 25% off site wide from Dudley before! I cannot shout louder about how amazing their turtlenecks are. Have owned both the Cobble Hill and Park Slope in several colors for years now. They also recently came out with a new style called the Greenpoint which is in between the two in terms of length! They are seriously the warmest thing you can own if you live in a cold climate (along with the Old Navy fleece-lined jeans :-P) go with the Vello fleece–it’s the warmest. (Terry fleece is good for warmer climates!)
Awesome seamless, no-slip undies! Plus, 10% of every purchase goes to fund micro-loans for women-owned businesses! Lots of pairs are marked down–my favorites are the “cheekies”!
30% off site wide, plus you can stack my code JESSKEYS on top of my 15% off code for your first purchase–they’ve opened the code for repeat customers too, not just for new customers! Also, you can spend $75 for One FREE Seasonal Daily Gummy Gift or Spend $125 for Two FREE Seasonal Daily Gummy Gifts!
Where to start: If you’re buying for yourself, the Balance+ Bundle is a great place to start, because their softgels and daily drops in tandem produce best results for a wide variety of issues–from sleep issues to help managing stress/anxiousness. If you also want help with topical pain (i.e. headaches, sore muscles, joint pain, etc) then go with the Relief+ Bundle which also comes with the relief cream! Tip: Always go with the subscription from the get-go because it’s an ADDITIONAL 20% off and you can cancel whenever you want!
If you’re buying a gift, they have some AMAZING luxury gift sets! Of course, you can absolutely buy a gift set for yourself too! They are designed to be needs-based, so there’s a set curated toward helping alleviate issues like sleep, stress, and topical relief!
FYI, men can use their products too! (Neal LOVES them and uses them every day!) the relief cream especially makes an excellent gift for guys who work out a lot or have muscle/joint pain (like Dads!)
The products I use for June! I love this brand so much! Offering 30% off site wide plus a free gift–see all my favorites in this post.
Up to 60% off off site wide! While I love a good GAP find personally, where they really shine is their baby clothes. SO. MANY. CUTE. CLOTHES. And very affordable! One of the top places I shop for June!
PJ’s starting at $25 and entire site is 40% off! The BEST jammies–especially if you’re looking for matching family pajamas or cute baby PJ’s!
30% off! Like I mentioned above, I love a great H&M find for myself, but where they really shine is their baby/kids clothes. All affordable, so you don’t feel bad when they grow out of them or trash them! June has been growing like a weed lately so I plan to stock up, especially on little multipack sets like these, which are great for daycare.
60%+ off sitewide! (So many markdowns! WOW!) I always recommend J.Crew for coats, so if you’re looking for a warm non-puffy winter coat, can’t recommend the Cocoon Coat or Lady Day coat enough! Also, of course, tissue turtlenecks–now 60% off!
30% off site wide! (Includes their classic skinny jeans which were voted #1 GG Reader Favorite for all body types! And my favorite vintage-inspired straight leg pair, reviewed here.) See more Madewell favorites highlighted below!
Up to 70% off! This is one of my favorite retailers for really nice, practical gifts (you can monogram everything too!)–especially great for gifts for parents and in-laws!
25% off everything–plus free shipping! Valid on everything from their amazing personalized gift ideas to holiday cards! (This is always one of my top reccos to shop for parents and grandparents and other sentimental gifts!)
Up to 50% off tons of items! Most notable markdowns right now: RAY BANS! (My favorite sunnies are this round pair and hexagon pair) Spanx leggings and Blondo (my favorite waterproof suede boots!), my favorite wireless bra (I have been living in these at home!) and my favorite Natori bra if you prefer underwire! (Both are under $40!!)
50% off site-wide! (Depending on the item!) Do NOT sleep on their fleece-lined “warm” jeans! They are SO comfortable, soft, and cozy! Feel like sweatpants! I also love their holiday PJ’s! I also often find some really cute baby clothes at Old Navy!
15%-30% off site wide! Okay I have NEVER IN MY LIFE seen a *sitewide* Shopbop sale that doesn’t have a ton of exclusions and doesn’t have a high spending threshold. This is amazing! Don’t sleep on this one.
Perhaps most excitingly, lots of AGOLDE items on sale! Plus, Loeffler Randall is part of the sale–including my favorite bow heels and these never go on sale! (The Emelia is a lower heel, the Penny is a bit higher heel, and the Camelia is a higher heel with an ankle strap. I own all three! They’re so comfortable and I wear them year-round! More casually in the summer but still for special occasions in winter!)
30% off certain styles. SO many great winter boots on sale for men, women and kids! My favorites for women and men below. For any climate with snow, you’ll want some Sorels!
20% off sitewide, plus 25% off orders over $500!

20% off sitewide, no code needed! My wonderful friend Ali’s boutique (who made the VOTE tees in 2020!) My favorites are her Chicago tees and sweatshirts, but she has so many cute clothing and gift items and everything is around or under $100!
Another adorable Lincoln Park boutique (that sells all her merch online!) is All She Wrote! She stocks beautiful cards and stationery, but tons of other fun gifts–many of which you can personalize and monogram! She’s running a 20% off sale.
Up to 60% off certain Etsy sellers! This is amazing! I’ve never seen them do this before–a lot of the items in my gift guide for her , for him , and babies and kids are from Etsy, so head there for favorites!
My friend Anna’s company that makes the prettiest jackets! If you’re looking for a great blazer or jacket, definitely check here–she’s running 25% off!
A local black-owned, woman-owned brand that makes awesome nontoxic nail polish! “Michelle Our Mama” is my favorite–a creamy beige. They were also named one of Oprah’s Favorite Things! Running a 50% off sale right now!
Do you follow my friend Mandy @WaitingOnMartha? She has her own amazing shop, called Waiting on Martha Home, and she stocks some of the most beautiful gifts and housewares you’ve ever seen! (I would describe it as something like a Southern Williams Sonoma with a punchy personality!) She’s offering 25% off right now!
Best Picks For Her
Best Picks For Her
Hydroflask 25% off!
My favorite water bottle of all time. Yes, it’s listed under the “for her” guide, but it’s a great gift for any guy, too! Keeps cold drinks cold, hot drinks hot, and I drink a ton more water with it than any other water bottle. Sale price even includes the sport cap! (A must IMO).
Marled camp socks:
Ordering these in Ivory marl and grey marl to wear with ankle booties and cropped pants! (I always get questions about how to pull off socks with cropped pants and booties–the trick is to wear as sock in the same color scheme as the rest of your outfit!) These are $8.50 a pair today.
Madewell Sherpa Cardigan:
My FAVORITE Madewell cardigan is back! I have it in Ivory from last year but they have a pretty seafoam green and deep burgundy color this year. Runs TTS! 30% off today with code CLICKCLICK
UGG Fluffette slipper:
My favorite slippers! I gifted them to myself last year and still love them! 🥰 Cute, cozy, and would make a great gift! Run TTS.
Amazon Fleece-Lined Leggings:
If you’re looking for some heavy duty warm leggings for winter, these have amazing reviews and are $21 today! Come in lots of colors, too!
Merit Beauty Complexion Stick:
I recently discovered this minimalist clean beauty brand from an Instagram ad! I have been testing out their complexion stick for the past couple of weeks, which I would describe as a multifunctional, buildable concealer/foundation in one. I love it so far! Anyone who loves “no makeup makeup” will love it too! On sale for $31! (FYI, I’m shade “Linen”)
True & Co Wireless Bra:
My FAVORITE wireless bra. Nothing tops it–NADA! It goes on sale every Black Friday and this year is no exception. They’re fantastic. I even bought 3 new ones at full price (as I needed to size up) when I was pregnant because they were THAT good. Feel like butter–have removable light pads (which is key). They run TTS. Buy more than one, you’ll be thankful! On sale at both Amazon and Nordstrom.
Lole Marybeth Parka:
60% off!? Hot damn! The WARMEST winter parka, and I’ve never seen such a low price! It’s usually quite an investment at $550, but at Nordstrom Rack it’s marked down to $206-$250 depending on the color you choose! (Also comes in white!) Runs TTS. I’ve tried on both the small and XS and both fit it just depends on how roomy you like your coats!
Blondo sneaker boots:
A new addition to my wardrobe and has already become a big hit. These were the ONLY shoes I brought to Oregon with me. Easy on/off, so comfortable–great for travel, but the biggest plus is that they’re waterproof–I got them to throw on in the winter (function like UGGS, but actually waterproof and won’t get wet/soggy/salty!) Also come in black. Run TTS!
Barefoot Dreams Blanket:
I know, I know. But seriously, it’s worth the hype. And this is the only time it goes on sale. AND this is actually a CUTE color on sale. (Sometimes it’s just the ugly colors! 😆) So warm and cozy I brought it to the hospital with me. Truly the best gift.
Blondo Knee-High Waterproof Suede Boots:
THE OG BOOTS. Probably my #1 bestseller in my CAREER history. They come out with a new version every year, and this is this year’s iteration. The most practical boots you’ll ever buy–they go with everything, keep you so warm, and you can walk through deep puddles, slush, and snow, and they’ll still look beautiful. Run TTS!
J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck Tee:
Another OG bestseller–I couldn’t get through winter without these turtleneck tees! Super thin, the perfect base layer. It’s been a long time since they’ve had a stripe with a white base (usually it’s just black with white stripes!) I LOVE this chunkier striped version with dark navy stripes. Runs TTS. If you want more of a tight “bodysuit” type look, size down. 40% off with code SHOPEARLY
Nordstrom Cashmere Sweaters:
Nordstrom makes really great cashmere, and their cashmere sweaters are part of their Black Friday special! I love this color in particular, would make a great staple (a beautiful neutral that goes with everything!) Who doesn’t like unwrapping a cashmere sweater as a gift?
Aerie Offline Leggings (AKA the most comfy leggings on earth)
Feel just like Lululemons at a price that will make you fall over in the best way. Another one of my bestsellers. All the women in your life will love a pair of these! The best lounge leggings out there! Come in tons of colors too!
Aerie waffle henley:
This is in my cart as we speak to purchase on sale at Aerie! Shaheen has been raving about it and I love that she sized down for a bodysuit-type look. A great piece on its own or for layering! Gotta love a good waffle tee! Comes in so many colors too!
Madewell lug sole loafers:
Speaking of Shaheen, she also has been raving about these Madewell lug sole loafers that are SO cute and also 30% off, if you’re in the market for some loafers!
Madewell Cashmere Bodysuit:
Ummm the best gift ever!? I want to gift this to myself. I’m guessing this will go fast! (I find Madewell to be pretty TTS!)
Pretty much the entire ABLE website is on sale, but worth mentioning, my trusty Alem backpack is still in stock in all colors! I know a lot of people are heading back to work, travel, etc, so I think this would make a really great gift! (This is also what I use for my diaper bag!) Full review of it here!

Madewell Vintage Straight Leg Jeans:
A favorite for over a year now! If you’re looking for a great pair of slim, straight leg jeans that have that perfect lived-in look–you’ll love these! Size up if you want a looser fit, take your normal size if you like your jeans snug. (Took my regular size 26).
Madewell Straight Leg jeans in Lunar Wash:
This post is getting very denim heavy 😆but I know everyone likes to snap up good jeans on sale, so I couldn’t not include them all! If you’re in the market for black jeans, I love these! Got them before Paris and they’re a slightly faded black, are SO comfy (perfect amount of stretchy and soft) and have a great vintage vibe. They will stretch out but be tight at first, so if you like your jeans tight, I’d go a size down. I got size 26 with is my regular size.
Old Navy Warm jeans:
Cold climate girls, listen up! These are the best possible jeans you could buy to get you through bitter cold winter temps. They are WONDERFUL. SO warm–lined with a super soft, light fleecy material. I won’t wear any other jeans outside once December rolls around. Buy a pair for your bestie, mom, and anyone else you know who is always cold! (I got them for my mom too!)
Beatles Holiday Tee:
Ok kind of random, but I love this Beatles holiday graphic tee! 😂 Couldn’t not include! All of Abercrombie is 30% off starting now!
Ray Bans 30% off!
INCREDIBLE deal! (Both at Nordstrom and Amazon!) All my sunglasses are Ray Ban. I am extremely brand loyal, and they are never this discounted! My most worn pair is this hexagon pair, but other pairs I love that are also on sale include their classic aviators, wayfarers, and clubmaster! (FYI, some pairs have both the regular and polarized versions available!)
Schott Zwiesel stemless wine glasses:
Pottery Barn is running a big special on our stemless wine glasses! We love these not just because the shape is pretty but also because they’re very durable and shatter resistant! We’re pretty hard on our glassware and these have lasted us for many years with only the occasional casualty 😉
Best Picks For Him
Best Picks For Him
UE Boom Speaker 15% off!
Our favorite portable speaker. Yes I’m listing it under the men’s guide (it’s Neal’s) but really, both of us love it equally! It’s awesome on the go but powerful enough for a party on the deck–a great gift!
Levi’s Sherpa Lined Jean Jacket:
I got this for Neal last year and it’s one of his favorite jackets–and right now it’s almost $50 off! Runs TTS, he wears a medium!
Faherty Brushed Flannel Shirt:
Faherty items make AMAZING gifts! They’re all so soft, super high quality and well-made. This brushed flannel will be a staple in his wardrobe and is currently 20% off. Faherty runs TTS for Neal–he wears a medium.
Faherty Sherpa Half-Zip:
Another super cozy Faherty find that would make an awesome gift for your guy, dad, brother, etc!
So many of Neals favorite pants are from Bonobos! It’s tough to choose a favorite, but highlighting the cords here because they’re perfect for winter. Stylish AND functional. A great gift to unwrap! $70 right now with code FRIDAY30 (Whole site is 30% off!)
Ray Bans 30% off!
Like me, Neal also owns several pairs of Ray Bans and plans to upgrade his wayfarers during this sale (both polarized and regular are on sale–go for the polarized if your budget can swing it!) All pairs are 30% off at Nordstrom. An AMAZING deal. Another favorite is the classic Aviator, if that’s more your guy’s style!
Theragun: ($100 off!)
Pretty sure this is Neal’s favorite gift he’s ever received, and it’s on sale now at Nordstrom! Great for any guy who loves to workout or even your dad who has trouble with sore or stiff muscles! (Also, not just for guys! I’m just putting in the guys section because Neal loves it so much!)
A mini version, also on sale, for the guy on the go! (Also great to keep in his gym bag for post-workout recovery!)
Tumi backpack: 20% off
If your guy is back to work/work travel, he might be in the market for a new backpack! Tumi is on sale at Nordstrom right now and this is a sharp, professional looking backpack that is super functional as well–even has a strap to ensure it fits neatly atop his roller board suitcase. If backpacks aren’t his thing, a couple of their briefcases are also on sale!
Also part of Bonobos’ site wide sale: Neal’s favorite underwear! It seems like everyone is always buying underwear for their guy at Christmas, and these are his #1 go-to!
J.Crew Primaloft Shirt Jacket:
The whole site is 40% off right now, and this shirt jacket jumped out at me right away! Super stylish and VERY versatile–it’s lined with Primaloft, which is J.Crew’s really warm insulation (not super bulky!) So this shirt jacket makes a great outer layer in the fall, or under layer in the winter. Whether he’s more an “outdoorsy beer garden” or an “outdoorsy hiker” kinda guy, he’ll get a ton of wear out of this!
UGG Ascott Slippers:
Not remotely groundbreaking, but it does seem like every dad/brother is in the market for some nice slippers for the holidays, so if you’re looking for a great pair–these have 5 star reviews across the board and come in tons of colors!
Herschel Dopp Kit bag:
Neal’s toiletry bag in black–20% off! Only $35 at East Dane (Shopbop’s Men’s site!) Ships with Amazon Prime!
Game of Thrones Coffee Table Book:
I can’t say I’m a GOT fan but I know many men who are die hard about the show–this GOT coffee table book would make a really cool gift, and is 25% off as part of Shopbop’s sale!
