Black Friday = Wear Flats So You Can Run if You Have To


Shopping during the holiday season can be a little crazy, so I've prepared some tips to keep you sane as you venture out for Black Friday shopping. Two things that are essential for your outing? A friend, and plenty of patience. Your outfit for the day should be something you can move around in, and your shoes should be flat because you may have to run to snag some of the best deals. A plan of attack is also essential on Black Friday. Organize your outing by neighborhood so that you can make the most of your time.

Last but not least, it's important to shop local. Here's a round of my favorite places to shop in the city and the deals they're offering for Black Friday.

For the guy in your life...Blackbird in Ballard is a great place to pick up outerwear, tees, and accessories. They also have a great assortment of grooming products that make great stocking stuffers. Use promo code BLKFRIDAY to save 20% on your purchases at blackbirdballard.com.

For your best friend...Stop by Sway & Cake downtown for women's clothing from brands like Loomstate and Rock & Republic denim. You'll also find Voluspa Candles, jewelry, accessories, and more. Sway & Cake is located on 6th avenue in Downtown Seattle next to Nordstrom.

For your mom...Aveda at Pacific Place has a beautiful assortment of aromatherapy products that are a great pick for moms. I also love the Comfort Tea which is $14 for a box of 20 tea bags. The tea is 100% organic and is the perfect way to unwind after a long day. Add a book (Obviously Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love) and a luxe blanket, and you've got the perfect gift.
