It's that time of year again—Black Friday and Cyber Monday season. I know, I know. Some of you might be so excited to snag some amazing deals for yourself and also for your holiday gift haul. But I'm guessing there is also a group of you out there that feel totally overwhelmed by the prospect and don't know where to shop or how to start. And maybe there are some people who don't even want to shop at all (and if that's you, no pressure—that means more time to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday).

But for those of you in the first two groups, you're probably looking for the scoop on the best deals out there. Well, you're in luck because there are some items that I wait until Black Friday to buy because I know that's when I'm going to score some amazing deals. For me, even though I'm a wellness editor and talk about it all day long, there are still some wellness finds that I like to prioritize on Black Friday. Sure, I'll buy some new leggings if needed other times in the year, or stock up on supplements or self-care items, but I really go all-in on my wellness wish list during this season.

Take a look at my wish list below of some of the best Black Friday wellness deals—maybe you'll find some inspiration here. Happy shopping!


Nordstrom's Zella leggings are always a bestseller with our readers and editors. This is the perfect time to stock up on them.

For high-impact workouts, this sports bra will keep you supported. It has adjustable straps so you can customize the fit, plus a breathable mesh overlay.

These biker shorts have an added bonus—they have pockets!

You're going to need something pre- and post-workout during the winter season—this sweatshirt will keep you warm.

Lululemon's longline bra is designed for training. It features a seamless construction to minimize chafing.

For something with underwire support, check out this sports bra from Natori. It's designed for cardio or running and features memory-foam straps and a wide elastic bottom band.

This breathable tank from Zella is so easy to wear and it can be worn during any workout.

We're big fans of Girlfriend Collective's comfy and compressive leggings. They're also made from recycled water bottles.

This cropped tank is pretty versatile—wear it to your workout class or when you're lounging around the house or running errands.

These are hands down my favorite leggings from FP Movement. They're soft, compressive, and ultra flattering. I also love that they have a handy zip pocket in the back. Bonus: This Thanksgiving everything is 15% off on Fp Movement and the brand is donating 100% of proceeds to Girls Inc.

This sleek, fitted jacket will keep you warm without weighing you down.

Made for yoga or studio classes, these tights are made of a buttery soft fabric and have a comfortable three-layer waistband.

Add a little intrigue to your activewear look with this patterned sports bra.

Fitness Gear

Bala bangles are a fashion girl favorite—they're sleek and stylish and don't really look like "regular" fitness gear. Try them on if you want to challenge yourself during your next workout.

These resistance bands are perfect for both strength training and stretching.

Sliders are great to use for core workouts. They may look pretty simple, but you're going to get a tough sweat session when you use these.

You're going to need a mat if you exercise at home, even if you don't practice yoga. Alo's mat is my favorite because it is slightly oversized.

Work out those arms with these sleek weights.

Self-Care Items

When you want to wind down, add some CBD to your routine. Lord Jones's tincture contains 500mg of full-spectrum CBD per bottle.

Want a quick way to get to dreamland faster? Spritz this calming spray on your pillow.

This bath was designed to make you unplug and unwind—and don't we all need that? It contains nutrient-rich sea salt to encourage sweat, promote circulation, and soothe muscle tension.

If you've been wanting to start a journaling practice, now's the time. This journal features prompts to help you reflect and practice gratitude.

Add essential oils to your self-care practice, you won't regret it. This set has everything you need to unwind at the end of a long day.

And you're going to need a diffuser for those essential oils. We like this one from Vitruvi.


I have this pan at home and I highly recommend it. I use it to cook just about everything and it's so easy to clean. I love that it also comes with a steamer basket and a spatula.

Plants always perk up a space. This small ficus is low-maintenance so it's perfect for plant newbies.

If you've been considering getting an Instant Pot, now might be the perfect time to take advantage of deals on certain models.

Brightland olive oils are high-quality and so delicious. They make perfect gifts, especially for your foodie friends. This collection features olive oils, plus vinegar.

I've had my eye on an air fryer for a long time so I'm definitely splurging on one this Black Friday.

Black Friday is also the perfect opportunity to stock up on bedding. Parachute's sheets are so luxe and comfortable.
