Everyone knows that Black Friday is one of the most chaotic days of the entire year! It starts on Thanksgiving and doesn’t seem to end until the Saturday after. If going out into that sort of disorder isn’t your thing, you’re probably trying to figure out what to do at home on Black Friday instead. If you are choosing to not leave your house on Friday, here are five suggestions on what to do instead!
A lot of Black Friday deals are actually online now! Get all of your holiday shopping done for discounted prices without having to ever get out of your pajamas! The Essentials: all you will need is your computer, some background noise, and a list of items to purchase. Bonus Suggestion: grab a pair of fuzzy socks to keep your feet warm while you shop!
If you are one of those people who decorates sooner rather than later and sometimes even before Thanksgiving, then disregard this. If you aren’t though, the day after Thanksgiving is a great day to put up all of those holiday decorations! The Essentials: holiday decorations, a tall person to help you hang things up if you are short, and some patience. Bonus Suggestion: make a warm mug of hot cocoa that you can stick a candy cane into!
There are so many great shows out there that it can be difficult to keep up with it all! That’s why Black Friday should be the day everyone hibernates to binge watch that show they have been putting off. The Essentials: a television and a Netflix account. Bonus Suggestion: find a comfy couch to sink into while watching!
ARTS AND CRAFTS
There are plenty of crafts to do that can make you feel productive while still being able to relax. Check out your local craft store and see what type of craft kit they have for you to try! (You can also combine your television marathon with your arts and crafts time to make it a great relaxation day!) The Essentials: a craft kit and a pair of glasses so you can see what you are doing. Bonus Suggestion: make sure to have some bandages on hand if trying cross stitching or needle point.
And girl should have a day to relax! Whether you enjoy taking a long bubble bath or giving yourself a pedicure, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you take a day to pamper yourself! The Essentials: any sort of spa-like product and some relaxing music for the background. Bonus Suggestion: try a new facial mask because there are plenty affordable and great options out there!
So if you’re not really the type to go out into the crowd and would prefer to stay in on the most ridiculous shopping day of the year, try one of these ideas out instead!
