Black Friday started several weeks early this year. I think that things have been getting a bit weird with the whole “Black Friday” tradition over the last decade or so.
And I know that only some places do their best deals on the Friday after Thanksgiving…other places make their best offers in December! So pin this article for later…I’ll have updates when I find them!
Read on for the best holiday deals for gifts for tweens and teens in 2023!

Deals I’ve found for Black Friday and the Holiday Season
Deals on Fashion and Clothes
Junk Food also has a lot of the trends both teen boys and teen girls are looking for. If your teen is into shirts and hoodies with band names, place names, Barbie, Mickey Mouse, and that sort of thing, check out Junk Food. They are having a big 30% off sale for Black Friday 2023.
If you have younger tween girls, then you need to head over to Justice for a million adorable choices! Justice is offering 60% off on everything for Black Friday, and they’ve continued the deal into December!
And of course, there are so many good deals on Amazon! Here are some deals on wearable gifts for tweens and teens that I found.
THE PRICE IN THE IMAGE IS SOMETIMES THE REGULAR PRICE, NOT THE SALE PRICE, SO CLICK TO CHECK:
Deals on Books and Learning
Big Life Journal is a favorite company of mine. They offer products to help kids build their resilience and self-confidence and build a growth mindset. Kids nowadays need help with their mental health, and Big Life Journal has some fantastic tools! They are having a huge buy one get one 50% sale! They have some choices for teens and tweens, plus they also have a new adult Big Life Journal which I think might be a good choice for older teens. If your teens and tweens need some help with goal setting and self-esteem, take a look at Big Life Journal.
The Good and the Beautiful is such a lovely company! They offer not only homeschool curriculum, but a library of books that are clean and full of positive messages, including many forgotten classics. Their prices are always reasonable since they are on a mission to get as many books into kids’ hands as possible. This week they are offering a BOGO 50% off deal (buy one, get one at 50% off) on all their handwriting and drawing books. I bought their drawing book of trees for myself and it’s such a relaxing activity for when I need a break. They are having a closeout sale on their books; they’re 40% off. The ones that look the most interesting to me are The Island of Appledore, which takes place during World War I – it’s only $4.79, and Through the Wall, a novel about a boy living in post WWII Berlin, which is only $5.99.
Deals on Everything

Deals for Gifts for Tweens and Teens on Amazon
I noticed when I was writing this that some of these listings come up with the sale price, but some of them are showing the regular price. So click the picture to check what the current price is…it may be lower than it’s showing.
Now’s the perfect time to buy those big-ticket holiday gifts as the prices are probably at their best. Here are a few ideas:
Those dang Nike Air Force 1s are so expensive but a lot of kids want them. I found them marked down a bit, which is better than nothing, right?
And the iconic Lululemon pants that are soooo expensive, yet every middle school girl MUST own a pair (according to what I hear). They are also rarely marked down, but I found them with a bit of a discount (remember to click on the picture to see the actual price, it doesn’t always show in the image):
Another expensive item on some teen’s lists is a pair of Doc Martens. Another item that rarely goes on sale, I did find them marked down for you. Hopefully it lasts until you click on it:
My daughter got Beats headphones for Christmas a couple of years ago. She loves them! There are a bunch of different styles. This is one example:
We got my son a telescope for Christmas a few years ago and it was a big hit!
More tech ideas:
A drone or laser tag are both fun:
Funko pops are so popular with tweens! You can get them for a steal right now. Here’s just one of dozens of examples:
Squishmallows are popular for tweens and teens. My daughter and her friends are always gifting them to each other!
And this silly version has baby cows inside!
Tweens would love these reversible plushies! So fun:
These purses are so cute:
When you click on this toy you’ll see an extra coupon you can click on (or at least I can right now…things are changing fast!)
Or a mini bag for make-up or pencils?
How about something fun to do?
