We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales from the links on this page.

1. A brand spanking new set of durable, hard-anodized aluminum, even-heating, non-stick cookware to help you prepare for all the holiday festivities.

Of course there are great deals on Black Friday but you can often find equally amazing deals throughout the month without the hassle of crowds — especially on cookware. Retailers will mark down items like pots and pans just as your getting ready for the holidays. You can even find reliable brands with lifetime warranties (like Calphalon) at pretty steep discounts. You'll finally have everything you need to host a real adult-like holiday dinner. (Although, as nice as these pots are, they won't teach you how to cook — just FYI.)

Get 53% off a five-piece Calphalon roasting pan ($79.96, $90.04 off the list price) and 40% off a two-piece fry pan set ($29.99, $20 off the list price) at Amazon.

2. A new pair of sneakers so comfortable you'll wear them way more often than just when you're "working out."

You probably wear your sneakers more than any other pair of shoes but let's be honest, when was the last time you washed them? Or didn't accidentally get a whiff of them and go, "what the hell was that?!" Sneakers are essential and investing in a good pair can make this holiday season so much easier. I mean, how else will you survive all the people trying to ram you with their shopping carts on Black Friday?

These Nike Free Flyknit sneaks are made of super comfy knitted fabric so they'll let your feet breathe and move while giving you the support you need. So freakin' comfortable, you might never want to take them off.

Get them from Amazon for $65.72 (Available in a variety of colors and in men's sizes 8.5-15. Find women's sizes here.)

3. A gorgeous customizable leather bag from Coach, because a good quality, long-lasting handbag is worth every cent — especially if it's designed with your help!

A solid leather handbag makes day-to-day life SO much easier. It'll also save you money in the long run because it lasts longer. Coach, the company known for their high-quality leather goods, now offers the ability to customize their classically shaped bags for that extra personal touch. Available in seven styles and over a dozen colors, their Coach Create bags can be embellished with signature details like embossed leather tea roses, unique AF souvenir pins, or western-inspired prairie rivets.

Bags start at $195.

Basically, everything Rhianna touches is gold — or in this case, glitter. Not only is her Fenty Beauty line cruelty-free and totally inclusive, but the limited-edition release for the holidays is straight magical. From its beautiful packaging to the beautiful color palettes, you can't go wrong with any product from the line — that is if you can get your hands on them!

Get them from Sephora for $19 each (available in four colors).

5. A portable air conditioner with a built-in dehumidifier and fan for a pretty significant discount — and since this is probably the one thing that'll give you an actually bearable summer nine months from now, that's a great deal.

As the leaves begin to change you are reminded why sweater weather is better weather and you do everything you can to block out the memories of all your summer sweat sessions. But before you let yourself get too far into the perfection of Fall, don't forget to buy that air conditioner you prayed for all summer long. Since most people aren't in need for AC units, especially the winter, retailers drop prices.

Get this Honeywell air conditioner in white from Amazon for $385.99 (14% off the list price).

6. A brand new suitcase, because if you're one of the millions of Americans traveling this season, you should probably have a piece of luggage that'll actually fit all your stuff.

amazon.com

Whether you're an over-packer or a carry-on only kind of traveler you're gonna need a solid suitcase. This Rockland 20-inch expandable carry-on is super light-weight, made of durable AF plastic, has multi-directional spinner wheels, and an ergonomic aluminum telescoping handle. It's so great, nearly 2,000 people have raved about it on Amazon.

Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in 34 color options). Check out more carry-on options here, some beautiful luggage here, and highly-rated suitcases here.

7. A classic London Fog trench coat to get you through that period where it's too warm for your heavy jacket but too cold for your favorite moto jacket.

London Fog is one of those brands you've probably heard of, maybe even owned a piece or two from. Their perfectly crafted, classically designed coats are effortlessly timeless. In fact, you could probably just go "borrow" one from your mom's closet — they're that timeless. They help protect you from the elements, are made specifically to be durable, are machine-washable, and just plain easy to wear.

Get it from Nordstrom for $178. (Available in three colors and in sizes XS-XL or petite sizes XS-L.)

8. A fancy AF wedding dress, because you're only gonna wear it once — no need to break the bank buying it.

bit.ly, bit.ly

November is probably the only time of the year where you might just be able to score an amazing deal on your wedding dress. Apparently, December is the most popular month to get engaged. So bridal shops prepare for an influx of new dresses by discounting the older models.

Get the deep-v beaded gown for $149 (available in sizes 0-8) and the off-the-shoulder gown for $249.99 (available in sizes 12) from TJ Maxx.

9. A really delicious pair of luxe shoes to wear with your fave LBD throughout the entire holiday season.

bit.ly, bit.ly

Not that anyone needs a reason to buy a fancy AF pair of shoes but if you need to justify splurging on a pair of notice-me heels or flats there's no better excuse than the holidays. Chances are you'll be throwing on your go-to cocktail dress a few times over the next few months so why not treat yo' self to some gorgeous shoes that'll take your look up a few notches. They'll last you WAY longer than the holidays, they're made of the finest leathers, and they'll look AMAZING on you.

Get the Badgley Mischka crystal embellished flats for $215 (available in sizes 5-11 and in four color options) and the Christian Louboutin Pigalle Follies for $675 (available in sizes 5.5-10.5 and three color options).
