After all, who doesn't love a good deal when shopping for homewares? You can thank us later...

Our favorite Black Friday deals – as chosen by the H&G editor

We’ve brought together some of our favorite luxury brand Black Friday deals on homeware to help you make your holiday season affordably fabulous. From sumptuous alpaca throws to unbelievably soft towels and abstract rugs to the best blenders, there’s a treasure trove of home, furniture and small appliance deals to spark inspiration from all around.

1. The Graydon Throw

It was never in any doubt that our first pick would be a stylish –and comfortable –throw. Did you know that cashmere is not environmentally friendly and many people are allergic? Alpaca is sustainably sourced, easy on the environment, and hypoallergenic. It even traps and releases heat. What's more, Alicia Adams Alpaca are offering a buy 2 get 1 free on our favorite buy – The Graydon Throw (opens in new tab), plus a 10% sitewide saving. No promo code needed.

The gorgeous Graydon Throw (opens in new tab), with its classic woven pattern, is the perfect option for an Aspen lodge or a Hampton estate. These sumptuous throws serve as an ideal accent piece wherever they are placed in the home.

2. KitchenAid Artisan 10-Speed Stand Mixer

While they're some of the best stand mixers on the market, KitchenAids are often a more expensive option, but for good reason – they are worth every penny. 

That's why KitchenAid Black Friday deals tend to sell out fast, because they can make that initial purchase a little less daunting. Especially with Christmas and Holiday gifting just around the corner, this deal will allow me to treat my loved ones (or myself!) to a brilliant kitchen appliance that's built to be displayed on the counters. Plus, it comes Joanna Gaines' approved.

This exclusive Joanna Gaines KitchenAid comes in a stunning matt sage green that's guaranteed to slot perfectly into any kitchen. 

3. Classic Towel

There's a fine line when choosing products for our bathrooms – ultimately the task at hand is striking a balance between fashion and function, and Brooklinen's Classic Towel (opens in new tab) has hit the right mark for me. 

The retailer – known for their super-soft cashmere linens – offers shoppers a selection of perfectly plush towels that assist as a warm companion after a relaxing soak but serve as statement textiles, instantly elevating your room's aesthetic. What more could you want? 

Classic Bath Towels | was $59, now $47.20 at Brooklinen (opens in new tab)

There is nothing worse than worn or itchy towels. Bath time should be relaxing, soothing and comforting – so ditch your thin and tattered towels and invest in these super soft favorites. You won't regret this purchase.

4. Auston Design Corum abstract rug

Rugs are often cited by interior designers as the lead item in a decorating scheme, with many using rugs as inspiration for color scheming and pattern throughout the rest of the room, so it was imperative that I found the perfect one. The Corum Abstrat Area rug (opens in new tab) is everything that I've been looking for, and so much more. 

Corum Abstract Black/Ivory Area Rug | was $120, now $42.99 at Wayfair (opens in new tab)

Rugs instantly add design, texture and comfort to any space, but with so many options to choose from, there’s a lot to consider when shopping for the perfect one. This minimalist design would work in just about any room, and I just couldn't resist when it comes with a 64% saving.

5. The Homes & Gardens magazine

I may be a little biased with this final pick, but the Homes & Gardens magazine (opens in new tab) is great gift for the friends – and family – who are always after the latest shopping advice, design ideas and trend forecasts. So take one more errand off their list by organizing regular deliveries of this quintessential British interiors magazine.
