What would it be, why do you absolutely have to have it, and who would it be for? This year the season will be stretched out quite a bit so make your decision count!

OK, so, I always conflate Black Friday with Christmas season when these questions come up (like, what is your BF budget? Do you mean my Christmas budget?). So, Do you mean just Black Friday sales, or I can only buy 1 thing for Christmas?

 

1 thing on Black Friday - probably the Nintendo Switch my grandson wants. I figure surely there will be bundles available again for BF, as opposed to buying just the console now.

 

1 thing for Christmas, period? - Yeah, I'm just not buying anything at all if I can only buy 1 thing  :sidesplit .

First of all, what kind of torture is this but if I only could choose one item it would be a butcher block kitchen island

Would have to be something nice for my wife and daughter to share if I can only get one thing.

This would have been my answer. That way everyone is taken care of. Otherwise I would just opt out of gifts that year, but maybe still slide each child some money. I know its cheating but hey their daddy's girls.

I mean in an ideal world (with unlimited funds and vacation time) I would agree with the vacation idea others have brought up. In reality the only thing I’m really hoping for is snagging the cheap deal that Walmart puts out every year on a large Lego Classic set, and selfishly enough it would be for me. We don’t do much in the way of presents anymore so Black Friday is a time for me to treat myself.

I’d buy my dad (80) an F-150. He always does for others and has always wanted one.

Well you can treat me. I am not picky at all, just would like a 42 Chevy short bed with a modified body, mahogany wood slats in the bed, Ferrari yellow interior pinstripe with me name etched in the headrest, big block motor, with dual exhaust, lowered with offset tires, bullet grill and chromed out, with a glittered pearl white paint job. See nothing to specific

Just Black Friday. Let's keep this simple, lol.


one house, please.

If a house were attainable on black Friday we would all be better off.

The worst kind possible. Imagine trying to please multitudes of people with one gift.

I would have to go with an all inclusive trip to Orlando to discoverycove and the 3 parks. As this is what I'm giving my 15yo son for Christmas. But it would have to include everything hotel, car rental, airfair and tickets as you can only purchase one thing on black friday lol.

I agree with everything but Orlando. I need to be somewhere exotic but for a 15yo than that will be the world. All of the parks in one week. I am tired just thinking about it

Its a tough decision especially with a wife and my 4 year old daughter and 5 year old son and something they could all use,  probably a bigger and better house in a better part of town where I live in.  Sometimes its rough around my parts with crime and such and then this house is old,  needs some major renovation that would be costly.

Hey! We had to buy one last year. It was difficult to buy in a year filled with hoarding and prepping.

We are on our 5th one in less than a year (3 different models) - none have worked right - and the parts to fix them are on backorder for up to 2 more years! VERY FRUSTRATING - and over $1,000.00 in lost food!!!!!!!!!!! :(

How about an instant pot that has all those other features (slow cooking, air frying, low pressure and high pressure cooking, timer, rice maker, steamer...), for me. Because Santa takes care of everyone else.

Wow...5 in a year. Man that is ridiculous. I could not find one so I just keep my moms filled to the brim just in case.
