Top Reader Favorites for Black Friday


Selected products discounted across various retailers


Readers have keeping warm and gift-giving in mind for the upcoming Black Friday weekend! And if you’re looking for some cute stocking stuffers, the most popular electronic items are the Anker Portable Charger (click the 15% coupon) and the iWalk Mini Charger for iPhones (48% off and the size of a credit card). Both are perfect to charge devices while on the go! 

If you’re on the hunt for luggage or handbags, TFGs still adore the Travelpro Maxlite 5 19” Suitcase for international carryon travel (40% off), and the cute Lola Mae Crossbody Purse is already low at regular price, but at up to 45% off, that’s a steal!

The Apple AirTags, 14% off the one pack and 19% off for the pack of 4 (Limited time only), are an amazing way to keep track of or locate lost luggage in an airport according to TFG readers! And for non-iPhone users, readers recommend using the TilePro trackers which are compatible with Android devices and IOS devices. 

And if you’re looking for some new clothes, readers have been buying up warm clothing. The Eddie Bauer Blazer (down to just $64!) is a huge hit for travel, being so soft and comfy, while the Charter Club 100% Cashmere Sweater is ideal for layering under a blazer, perhaps. And the sweater is now under $50! You can top that pretty outfit off with the super popular Baleaf Fleece Lined Leggings (23% off plus 15% coupon – select colors & sizes), plus the new reader fave, the Sun & Stone Kadee Ankle Boots, which are only $19.99, from $49.99!

A popular runner-up to Fleece Lined Leggings is the Carovia Fleece Leggings. I own them myself, and they’re warm, never pill, and are super cozy!

They also have cute flats that are on sale and on trend at the moment, the Tree Breezers, which are made from flexible eucalyptus tree fiber, have a simple, chic look. (Just remember, flats aren’t recommended for long periods of walking, but for a short jaunt on your trip–they’re a winner!)

The Perfect Pants in Sizes XS-3X




Sale has Ended


A popular reader favorite for travel, Spanx always has a variety of clothing that travelers adore. Spanx clothes don’t go on sale often, so it’s a good idea to take advantage while you can. If you’re unsure where to start, bottoms are hugely popular. The latest reader must have is the Perfect Pants—they’re stretchy, comfy, and flattering! 

Another editor and reader fave is the Faux Leather Leggings (Nordstrom). These leggings have been a game changer for me – with the comfort of a legging mixed with a dressy faux leather sheen, these have become one of my favorite bottoms for travel. I also own the Faux Leather Moto Leggings too, and these have become a more recent addition to my rotation of fight outfits!

And if you want bottoms that are light as air, look no further than the Air Essentials line (which is Oprah-approved, by the way!). You can enjoy Black Friday savings on the Air Essential Tapered Pants and the Air Essential Wide Leg Pants. Both have four-way stretch, are made of a soft knit, and feel ridiculously light to wear!  

Their Spanx Look at Me Now Seamless Leggings are also popular during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale!

If you wanted to layer, even more, the Oversized Cashmere Wrap is worth grabbing, as its combo of acrylic and nylon fabric will keep you warm and fresh-looking all the way through your trip. And if you want something versatile, the Eloise Blazer is a huge seller and a casual-chic style that can be layered or worn with a cute tee, like the Vintage Short Sleeve T-Shirt

Shop: Nomad Lane


Nomad Lane


20% off on Bento Bags. Discount applied at checkout


This amazing travel bag rarely goes on sale, so we advise taking advantage during Black Friday deals! Once I discovered the Nomad Lane Bento Bag which is 20% off now, I’ve use​​d it over other onboard personal items for a few reasons. I feel it’s very structured, has adequate compartments for me to fit my packing cubes and the majority of things I need, and two of my favorite features of the Bento Bag are the practical trolley sleeve, which sits perfectly on my suitcase, and in my experience, it has fit under the seat on all the planes I’ve flown, even on small domestic planes! 

Feel free to check out our review on this popular traveler’s bag!

The weather is getting chilly, and it’s wise to buy thermal underwear, especially when they’re on sale. Given it’s a specialty item, it’s not often they are discounted! Remember, when dressing for cold weather travel, it’s best to layer your clothing and avoid bulky fabrics by utilizing thermals beneath lighter items such as merino wool sweaters.

(Select Colors & Sizes)


Eddie Bauer


Limited Time! CIRRUSLITE DOWN COLLECTION from $44.99!
50% off select styles on their website, an extra 50% off clearance items with the code: THANKFUL50, and daily deals too!

Selected products discounted across various retailers


Tis’ ‘the season to stock up on items on your list—hopefully, Eddie Bauer is one of them! Take for example, the TFG editor-approved Eddie Bauer Charly Jacket, which I discovered a while back it’s become my jacket for rain and chilly weather. If you want a full-coverage winter jacket, the CirrusLite Down Jacket is discounted right now, with 650 fill power, and it’s very lightweight! You can also get the CirrusLite on Amazon here!

A surprising choice that I discovered is the Ripstop UPF 50 Shirt. Besides having UPF sun protection, it’s moisture-wicking, so I don’t overheat, and the cut isn’t overly fitted or saggy. Another discovery for me was the Trail Tight Leggings. Since I don’t really wear leggings, I specifically bought these for hiking excursions as they are high-performance because they don’t retain odors, have UPF 50, and wick away moisture. Grab the Trail Leggings at Amazon as well, right here!

And a continual TFG reader favorite and top seller has been the Girl on the Go Trench Coat. It’ll keep you dry (because it’s seam-sealed) and is resistant to wind, so ideal to nab while on sale (also discounted at Amazon)! Finally, the biggest reader hit lately is the Departure Ankle Pants. They’re stretchy, comfy, and SO versatile for travel! Also, get the Departure Pants on sale on Amazon too! Another reader must-have item from the Departure line is their Blazer
