A bit of turkey, a bit of smoke, and pass the pumpkin pie. Hopefully Thanksgiving for you will be an enjoyable time with family and friends and lots of leftovers to satisfy the munchies! If you thought there could be nothing better than two days off and endless football, there’s still the holiday shopping to look forward to.
Yeah, you’re probably cringing at the idea of getting your butt out of the house at 3 AM to camp out in front of Best Buy, but if you look at Black Friday, the biggest holiday shopping day of the year, from a stoner’s perspective, you’ll find you can save yourself some money this year with some cheap relevant gifts. The “official” Black Friday website has leaked a number of major store circulars, so before you make any major purchases be sure to see what is offered where for how much. The plus side of Black Friday is that when you’re done shopping you can sleep well into Saturday!
If you really want to give the gift of peace, love, and great buds, consider a subscription of The Art of Mary Jane Magazine for a friend. It reads right off the laptop or PDA, and is full of gorgeous pictorials and informative articles on marijuana culture. The print edition comes out in 2011, so keep that in mind, too.
Amazon.com, for one, has begun their sales early (see all the deals here), so you don’t have to leave the house for these. Some good prospects include the latest John Lennon compilation Power to the People for half off, plus deep discounts on Jimi Hendrix, Jakob Dylan, and Kings of Leon. In movies, you can pick up seasons 1&2 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia for under eleven bucks (down from $40!) and unrated Blu-rays of The Hangover and Hot Tub Time Machine.
If you’re looking for a cool t-shirt or two for your wardrobe, CafePress is offering 15% off your order of $50 or more with the code THANKS15. If you prefer to cyber shop rather than hit the mall, check sites like Retail Me Not for promotional codes, and Woot for awesome one-day deals on gadgets.
Whatever you do end up doing for your holiday shopping, though, save a bit and treat yourself to something nice. Have a great weekend!
