Rachael Dunphy

With Black Friday just around the corner on November 25th, and Christmas creeping up on us. Theres no better time to start your gift shopping for your near and dear. We’ve put some of the best Black Friday bargains in one place to save you time and money; and get you organised before exam season!

We might not have Sephora, but Boots has seriously upped its game when it comes to beauty, hair and skincare. With a massive selection in their Black Friday offers, our top pick is Marc Jacobs Dot, which is half price at an amazing €36. Marc Jacobs fragrances are always a classic, and an absolute steal this Black Friday. Boots have a huge selection of gift ideas for Christmas, and don’t forget students get a 10% discount with their Boots Advantage Card. 

As students, we spend so much of our time listening to music, podcasts or even recorded lectures, meaning a reliable pair of headphones is a must. Whether you’re into wireless in-ear, or noise cancelling over-ears, Harvey Norman has options to suit every budget. Our pick this Black Friday are these JBL noise-cancelling headphones for less than €70, perfect for the gym, the library or the morning commute. 

If you’re finally getting back to travelling in the new year, a good quality suitcase is a must. With 50% off on a range of luggage, Tripp are offering their customers cabin size bags from €49 – perfect for those weekend trips. Tripp also provides free shipping on orders over €100 and free returns if your suitcase arrives and you realise it’s not your thing. 

If you or someone you love is in the market for some new sportswear this Christmas, look no further than Intersport Elverys. Not only are you supporting Irish, but their ‘Buy One Get One Half Price’ sale is the perfect place to start for the sports fans in your life. The sale ranges from Asics running shoes, home gym equipment, and plenty of present ideas for the younger generation this Christmas. 

Of course this year it’s more important than ever to support local at Christmas, and smaller Irish retailers will have offers both in store and online over the next few weeks. Keep an eye on their social media for all their Black Friday deals.
