[Just looking for Cyber Monday sales for now? Here you go!]

Happy Monday! It’s a little hard facing Monday after a loooong weekend, but it’s my favorite few weeks of the year so I’m trying not to complain. How were your Thanksgivings? My parents came into town from Wednesday to Saturday and we had a really nice time…the agenda included dinner at Rose’s on Wednesday, cooking at my place on Thursday, Lauriol + walking around a new-to-them part of the city on Friday followed by a free show at the Kennedy Center (we must have hit at least 15k steps that day), and brunch at Le Diplomate on Saturday. My heart and stomach are both reallllly full.

Have you been doing any shopping? It’s hard to say just called it “Black Friday” anymore because sales start as early as Wednesday night, and then there’s Small Business Saturday followed by Cyber Monday. Luckily today’s deals are something to rave about…you can get ’em all here.

Gift guide wise, today’s post is gift ideas for the traveler. There are a couple repeats from this guide, but for good reason. Nearly all the items clock in at under $200, and most are under $50. For a splurge, I swore by this camera on our trip. This sweater (currently marked down lower than I’ve ever seen it) is practically made for long haul flights, and this TRUFFLE duo (c/o; 25% off today) was a lifesaver in Europe and continues to be in heavy rotation now that I’m back…more on them in tomorrow’s post but trust me: they’re incredible! Also, how genius are tech cases? J got one before we left and I honestly didn’t even think they existed. A bunch of these work well for the men on your lists, too!

    I’m always kicking myself for not buying the collapsable Hunter’s! The regular ones are almost impossible to pack! Love all of your picks!
