Forget Black Friday: All We Want is Wine, Cheese and Disney+ for the Holidays

With the holiday season just around the corner, Christmas shopping should be on the top of your to-do list. As gaming consoles, TVs, laptops, iPads and iPhones take over most of the listings for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you may be lucky to snatch the best deal on that amazing 4K smart TV you’ve been wanting for a long time. However, if you or your loved one already have all the new and shining tech devices, Black Friday and Cyber Monday might not be for you.

As you flip through booklets of ads, nothing looks really that exciting and gift cards are a thing of the past – where to find that unique gift? Monthly subscription boxes and streaming services are trending as some of most-wanted gifts for the holidays. From cheese to wine, coffee and Disney+ subscription plans, there are plenty of options to satisfy the taste of that special friend and your doggo. Depending on your budget, there are plenty of subscription plans to fit your needs (and your wallet): from a one-time purchase to a 12-month plan, subscription boxes and streaming video services are booming among consumers of all ages.

Sephora, Ulta, Walgreens and CVS continue to dominate the beauty and health sector but Amazon is not far behind, being a popular preference with online shoppers. According to the article “These are the top beauty brands dominating Amazon” on www.fastcompany.com, Amazon is now the second-most-shopped retailer for beauty products and shows no signs of slowing down.

The online retailer has also private labels dedicated to health and personal care categories: Presto, Basic Care, AmazonBasics, Mama Bear and Mountain Falls.

This can be frustrating for competitors but great news for frugal customers, offering shoppers the opportunity of scoring great deals. Check out my tested and approved Amazon’s beauty and personal care items!
