Just check out these great gift ideas for adults and kids. Most of these deals are also perfect for relatives whose gifts need to be shipped, especially since many are offering free or discounted shipping.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not willing to wait in Black Friday lines. I love a great deal even more than most people, but I draw the line at getting up early, fighting huge crowds and waiting for an hour to check out. Fortunately, there are so many phenomenal discounts available online that it’s not even necessary to go anywhere near a brick and mortar store anymore.
I’ve done almost all of my Christmas shopping online for years. Here are some of my favorite deals going on right now, and I’ll continue posting about gift ideas and deals throughout the holiday season.
