The 2020 winter holidays are shaping up to be very different than what most of us have experienced before. For one thing, Black Friday sales are starting even earlier, but many retailers and e-commerce experts are also forecasting major shipping delays. These are just a couple of considerations you need to remember when coming up with holiday gift ideas this year.
Fortunately, DealNews is here to help you make the most of the weirdness that is the holiday season of 2020. Check out our tips for buying gifts this year, as well as our top picks for men's, women's, kids', and tech products.

Holidays at Home Deals
Discount: New discounts every day
Shipping: Free shipping
It's fun to see a sale start in late October, and fully expect it to run for pretty much the rest of the year – and this eBay "Holidays at Home" sale matches its running time with an enormous quantity of deals, with new ones being added every day. You'll probably find the cream of the crop in the Featured Deals section, but more specific (and probably less long-lasting) subsales can be browsed underneath, like an extra 20% off adidas, up to 50% off refurb tools, up to 30% off cook- and bakeware, and more.
Le Creuset Cast Iron and Stoneware
Discount: Up to 30% off
Shipping: Free shipping w/ Prime
Some good stoneware or cast iron cookware can last a lifetime, and Le Creuset has earned a reputation for being top of the line. That makes any of these kitchen necessities a great choice of gift for the culinary-crazed in your life. In the interest of avoiding any awkward mouth sounds, we've taken the precaution of finding a video to provide the proper pronunciation of "Le Creuset" (distressingly close to saying "leprosy" with a mouthful of toothpaste).
