Shop now. Play Friday.

I encourage you to #OptOutside on Black Friday to avoid the crowds who will be piling into stores all day long—and because you have the day off to play. But I also know this week is a great time to save money on outdoor gifts, so I’ve gone through Amazon and tracked some of the deals that are already posted. Note: Some of these deals change daily, but others will stick around or come back.
