I don’t know how this month has flown by so fast, but Black Friday will be here next week! (I still have no idea what we’ll be doing for Thanksgiving, since we barely just moved into our new house—but not cooking sounds pretty good right now.)
If you’re like me, you probably like to skip the frenzy of Black Friday/Cyber Monday and get all your holiday shopping done early.
Well, I’ve got good news: Amazon is already featuring tons of early Black Friday sales online so you can take your time going down your gift-giving list, or—ahem—scouring all the good deals so you can outfit your new home without breaking the bank.
Disclosure: All products on this page are independently selected. If you buy from one of my links, I may earn a commission.
Deals start Friday, November 17 (with many deals that are live now, including some of the ones I’ve linked below) and run through Monday, November 27.
But that’s not the only good news. As a longtime Amazon partner, I’m thrilled to announce that I’m giving away TWO $500 Amazon.com gift cards to two lucky winners so you can shop all things Amazon!
Consider this a huge thank you for reading Garden Betty, coming back here over and over, sharing my site with your friends, and making it possible for me to bring helpful, original content to you without a paywall or membership.

Quick tip: To see all the current holiday deals, bookmark this page on Amazon, as new deals will continue to go live each day from now through Cyber Monday.
Best early Black Friday garden deals
EGO Power+ Cordless Leaf Blower – We own several EGO Power+ tools, including this leaf blower, and love that we can use the same high-capacity batteries for all of them.
EGO Power+ Cordless Self-Propelled Lawn Mower – We don’t have this yet, but we need one.
Rachio 8-Zone Smart Sprinkler Controller – If you’re trying to keep your garden alive while still conserving water, a weather-based irrigation controller is a must. This one automatically adjusts your watering schedule based on rain, wind, or freeze.
Solo Stove Smokeless Fire Pits – My favorite fire pit brand has a few deals going on for their Ranger model and their Mesa tabletop fire pit.
Solo Stove Bonfire 2.0 with Stand – I already own the original Bonfire, but now I’m lusting after the green version! I find this size to be perfect for up to eight adults to sit around.
VivoHome Heavy-Duty Mesh Steel Garden Cart – Every garden needs at least one of these folding utility wagons. We use ours for hauling plants, tools, and fire wood around the yard.
Archin LED Outdoor String Lights – Want to turn your backyard into a glowing oasis? These string lights are waterproof, shatterproof, dimmable, and connectable.
SuperHandy Wood Chipper – Turn all your downed tree branches (up to 3 inches in diameter) into valuable mulch with this wood chipper.
SuperHandy 6-Ton Electric Log Splitter – If you’re still splitting logs by hand, you might want to keep an eye on this deal. The 6-ton version can handle logs up to 10 inches in diameter. (They also have a 10-ton version that splits logs up to 16 inches in diameter.)
Stanley Quencher Vacuum Insulated Tumbler – I love these tumblers for keeping my drinks ice cold when I’m working in the garden.
JobSite Boot Dryer – I’ve used a similar boot dryer for years to dry all of our winter boots. It’s a necessity if you’re often outside in snow and rain!
Best early Black Friday home deals
Bissell Little Green Multi-Purpose Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner – This portable carpet cleaner is what allows me to have nice things with kids in the house! If you have carpet or upholstered furniture in your home, it’s a must. Read the reviews; they’re impressive!
Eufy Super Slim RoboVac – This is the same exact robot vacuum I have and love. It’s outlasted our previous Roomba vacs by years!
Flexispot Adjustable Standing Desk – In my quest to get up from my computer more often, I discovered Flexispot a couple weeks ago. I decided to go with their L-shaped standing desk (which I LOVE—it’s similar to this one, but with a bamboo top), but this model is a good choice for a simple home office setup.
Sony Bluetooth Speaker – My go-to portable speaker for road trips or just working in the yard. The waterproofness and dustproofness is essential.
EcoFlow Portable Power Station – Be prepared for power outages. This 3600Wh portable generator has 15 output methods (including multiple outlets and a USB fast charger) to keep your devices running. Best of all, there’s currently a coupon for $1,000 off this unit!
Ring Video Doorbell – The entire line of Ring video doorbells, indoor cams, floodlight cams, and spotlight cams are on sale this weekend.
Phillips Sonicare Toothbrush Heads – Do you own a Sonicare? I’m definitely stocking up on brush heads with these deals!
Rumpl Puffy Blankets (National Parks Collection) – These packable blankets keep you so toasty for backyard bonfires, picnicking, or camping, and I especially love the beautiful prints of our national parks. Hint: Bundle one of these with my newest book, The National Parks Cookbook, as a gift for an outdoor lover!
Best early Black Friday kitchen deals
Fellow Stagg Electric Gooseneck Kettle – My husband just bought this kettle for his pourover coffee-making, and he says it’s the best one he’s had so far.
Rabbit Automatic Electric Corkscrew Wine Opener – We have both manual and electric Rabbit wine openers in our home and like them so much, we bought one for our RV.
Godinger Wine Decanter Carafe – The Rabbit opener, this carafe, and a nice bottle of wine would make a great host or hostess gift for any wine lover!
All-Clad Gourmet Waffle Maker – We’ve had one of these for a few years now, and make perfect waffles every time.
Ball Jar Wooden Storage Lids – I prefer one-piece lids when using my mason jars for storage, and these acacia wood lids (complete with airtight seals) make my whole pantry look good.
FoodSaver Vacuum Sealing Machine – Do you do a lot of freezing? A vacuum sealer like this can help your food stay fresh and last five times longer in the freezer!
Etekcity Waterproof Rechargeable Kitchen Scale – If you bake, make pizza, or often need to weigh ingredients, a food scale is one of the most useful kitchen gadgets you’ll own. This one goes to 22 pounds, so I even use it for quick package weighing too.
Ninja Mega Kitchen System with Blender Pitcher and Processor Bowl – I’m a longtime fan of Ninja products (having also owned a Foodi, Air Fryer, and their original blender), and this set combines multiple functions in one blender. You can make smoothies or chop food just by switching out the vessel.
Vitamix Immersion Blender – This time of year, my immersion blender gets a lot of use to make creamy soups and silky sauces. (It’s much more efficient than using a regular blender.)
ThermoPro TempSpike Wireless Meat Thermometer – This Bluetooth thermometer lets you monitor your cooking from up to 500 feet away. A great gift for a BBQ enthusiast!
Anova Sous Vide – We were gifted this sous vide a few years ago and love it for cooking fish, steak, pork, and other meats to just the right doneness with zero risk of overcooking.
