GETTING YOUR BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING STARTED WITH EBAY
For 2021, if you haven’t already started shopping for the holidays, you’re currently behind. It might seem a bit early – Halloween is just behind us – but as you look around stores, both brick-and-mortar and digital, the selection is minimal, and items are already on back order.
The past few years, too, many of us have been evaluating our consumption habits in relation to sustainability. “Do I really need that?” You might start with this question, and if you can say “Yes”, then why not find something used or pre-owned to participate in a more circular economy.
eBay – a marketplace with substantial new and Certified Refurbished offerings – has you covered not just for the 2021 holiday season in general but also with Black Friday deals. eBay has developed into a global commerce leader over the past few decades, covering 190 markets and assisting 159 million active buyers across the globe. This arrangement gives entrepreneurs a leg up when it comes to starting their endeavour, businesses and organizations an additional platform for selling their goods, and individual consumers a single spot for buying what they need from a broad array of new and pre-owned products.
This year, Black Friday has already landed. You’re likely already gearing up for the season. As a hint for what to expect as you shift your shopping online this year, eBay Black Friday deals encompass everything from fashion and beauty to home furnishings, toys, and electronics.
To plan your shopping and find a deal, everything in the Brand Outlet will be available for £30 through the weekend and into Cyber Monday. That doesn’t mean the deals are done. Instead, buyers get an extra 20% off existing markdowns until December 3rd. Beyond just the styles in the Brand Outlet, eBay is offering up to 50% off all other products over this time.
As well, for those who purchase from eBay and also manage a storefront on the platform, eBay is offering a Selling Fee deal: Any customer who purchases something for £5 or more between 12th and 29th November will receive £1 max selling fees between 3rd and 6th December.
We had a chance to take a look around, and selected a few items for the people who might be on your list this year:
The overshirt – or shacket – has been everywhere the past five years or so. Beyond a trend, it’s one of the most practical garments available. Throw it on for some warmth once the temperatures start to decrease, and by winter, it’s ready, often with a more streamlined, casual form as a layer under a heavier trench or overcoat.
Chances are, you know someone who, due to questioning the practicality and longevity of their wardrobe, might be building up their basics. You’ve noticed, and this River Island shacket in a neutral hue with a textured appearance fits right into this new minimalist, long-term outlook.
Also on the subject of building up basics, a peacoat tends to be a well-appreciated garment for individuals interested in and indifferent to style. For one, the more relaxed shape tends to fit over other layers, like the overshirt mentioned above, as well as a blazer or even a bomber jacket, and delivers a more neutral look. There’s nothing flashy yet still something sharp and put-together about the peacoat, and this classic piece from Jack Wills presents that precise combination.
When it comes to giving a style-centric gift, solid-colour shirts seem like an easy way out – like you could’ve given that item to anyone. Yet, to the other end, patterns are a tricky space to navigate. Not everyone will appreciate your eye for florals or geometrics.
This buffalo check shirt hits the sweet spot with a borderline colour-blocked appearance that still rests on a casual foundation. A closer look reveals subtle stripe details within the checks. In turn, when you want to give a gift someone will wear, this Jack & Jones shirt delivers the versatility to be paired with jeans and chinos and an easygoing character that fits right over a crewneck tee.
Everyone’s got a baking habit now, as well as a laser-focus on getting rid of the Quarantine 15. This Ninja blender and smoothie maker kills two birds with one stone while also taking up less space in the recipient’s kitchen.
Get in all those fruits, vegetables, and proteins with its quick pulse and blend functions resulting in smooth drinks that retain all nutrients and eliminate waste. Later, this two-in-one device lets you streamline sauce and soup making – two more ways to get in your vegetables – and can help with certain baking prep steps.
Not everyone’s house or apartment is equipped for a full-on home theater system. Yet, with more of us opting to stream from the couch rather than head out to the movies, this 65-inch Philips television ups the visuals with LED technology, smart features, and 2160p (4K) resolution. The result adds a greater level of depth, detail, and naturalism to whatever’s on the screen.
eBay’s Certified Refurbished products like this TV are professionally checked and covered by the eBay Money Back Guarantee and come with a 12-month warranty. This ends up being good for your wallet, and helps contribute to a more sustainable economy by keeping pre-owned goods in circulation.

As a note, eBay’s certified refurbished mattresses undergo a stringent refurbishment process prior to being listed for sale. Before being refurbished, every mattress is evaluated to ensure it complies with eBay’s strict quality standards. Then, the outer cover is replaced before the mattress is rolled into a box, leaving it as good as new. It also comes with a five-year manufacturer warranty.
You know someone who’s all about convenience. Yet, when it comes to their coffee, they’re always particular. Bosch’s TASSIMO coffee machine doesn’t compromise one for the other, precisely measuring out water and timing the brew just so, for a flavourful beverage that’s based on one-touch operation.
