It’s November! That means it’s time to start shopping for Christmas gifts for family, friends, and other loved ones. But, before you start thinking about Christmas, you have to make it through Black Friday.
We’re roughly three weeks away from Thanksgiving, which means that Black Friday is right around the corner. Plus, with the pandemic still raging and shipping issues still happening worldwide, you need to prepare for the worse.
A lot of retailers are also trying to encourage customers to shop early with exciting deals and sales. Here are 18 Black Friday deals you cannot miss this year from small businesses! (P.S some of these companies have already started their sales.)

Why You Should Support Small Businesses
Thanks for reading my Black Friday shopping guide. As a small business owner, it means the world to me when people shop or share my work and products with their loved ones. Black Friday is one of the largest retail seasons besides Christmas. For many small businesses, this is the make it or break it moment that determines whether or not they will make it through the following year.
I encourage everyone to shop with one of the smaller businesses this holiday season and help close the wealth gap between smaller and large corporate businesses. Plus, you know that the products you’re buying will be made with love and heart.
Where are you shopping this Black Friday? Let me know in the comments.
