The Christmas presents the Mamamia team are buying in the Black Friday sales.

If you routinely leave Christmas shopping until the day before, then for the sake of your future self, I’m here to tell you to stop procrastinating and get cracking.

With just over a month to go, the team at Mamamia are using Black Friday and Cyber Monday to do exactly that. Not only are they scoring some major savings, but they’re quickly getting through their shopping list so they can spend Christmas Eve the way it’s supposed to be spent — watching festive movies and lounging on the couch.

While my team enjoys working with me (I think), I doubt they’re planning on inviting me over on Christmas day to watch their loved ones open presents, which is why I asked them to tell me what they bought instead.

So, if you’re just as curious as me — or you're looking for some inspo — then here is everything the Mamamia team bought as Christmas presents in the Black Friday sales.

Ghd Glide Hair straightener Brush in Alluring Jade, $260.

“I LOVE this straightener brush. I've had a Dyson Airwrap for two years and grew up in a household where my mum was big on investing in good hot tools so her thick, curly-haired children could have dead straight hair. I have THICK and hard to manage hair so I know that if a hot tool works on me, then it will be good for everyone. As someone who will never give her Airwrap up for anyone, I have to say that this brush is better at straightening than the straight brush attachment on the Airwrap, because the GHD makes it smoother and more flat. I think it is the perfect gift for anyone who wants straight hair. Honestly, I LOVE it. I use it every day (and it works if your hair is damp as well).” - Shannen Findlay, Content Producer.


OnePass, from $4/mo.

“I signed up for OnePass. Between my son's birthday on December 5 and Christmas, it was just too good an opportunity to pass up. I signed up for half price due to Black Friday and now have early access to the sales, plus all the other OnePass benefits. Leigh Campbell has me completely convinced.” - Pip Lamb, Media Sales Manager. 


The Small Messenger Bag by MAISON de SABRE, $201.75.


“I got this bag for my best friend, and it is his most favourite bag ever. It fits all the essentials (including our massive iPhones) and it is SO cute. He uses it to travel, for work and he's even taken it to a festival (it's made from full-grain leather so it is really easy to clean). It's so luxe and really worth the money (plus it’s 25 per cent off).” - Shannen Findlay, Content Producer.


Monday Swimwear Clovelly One Piece, $195.

“Monday Swimwear makes THE BEST bikinis and one pieces and I know my sister has been eyeing them off for ages. So grabbing her this gorgeous black and white one while the whole site is having a sale.” - Charlie Begg, Morning Editor.


MPWR Sculpt Jacket, $79.95.

“My sister is a pilates girly and has requested one of these sculpt jackets from MPWR (extra brownie points for being a small business)! They also have a cute sage green set launching soon that I'm eyeing off for myself... I'm obsessed.” - Phoebe Anderson, Branded Content Executive.


Basil Bangs The Weekend Beach Umbrella in Sage, $199.

“My mum and I adore the beach and the summer lifestyle. For Christmas this year, I know she's been after a nice beach umbrella she can use (sun protection is very cool) and this one from Basil Bangs has been on my radar. It's seriously stunning, and practical.” - Isabella Ross, Senior News Writer.

In The Roundhouse Ciao Bella Plate, $29.

“I've also seen that In The Roundhouse has 20 per cent off their website until Wednesday next week, so you best believe I'll be purchasing some goodies from there. All my friends and I are obsessed with their dinnerware. It's the perfect present.” - Isabella Ross, Senior News Writer.

Breville The Barista Express Coffee Machine, $999.

“I nearly bought the Breville coffee machine! One of the best purchases I’ve ever made, and it’s 30 per cent off. I was hoping to buy it for my brothers who have been wanting one for years.” - Jessie Stephens, Executive Editor.

Vok Raspberry Ripple Cocktail Cans, $19.

“I am going to a Friendmas this year and we always do a Secret Santa, but what I plan on bringing everyone are these delicious cocktails by Vok. They come in three flavours (Raspberry Ripple, Sex On The Beach and Pina Colada) and we LOVED them the last time we drank them together.” - Shannen Findlay, Content Producer.

Mermade Hair Interchangeable Blow Dry Brush, $159.

“The Mermade Blow Dry Brush is the only hair product I use these days — I can do curls with it and replicate a salon blow dry. I want to gift it to every woman in my life so they can experience just how good it is too. Although I have the standard one with just the round brush, I'll be snagging this as it comes with the dryer attachment and two barrels to style.” - Charlie Begg, Morning Editor.

Snapfish Classic Wall Calendar, from $24.95.

“This year I bought a wall calendar with pics of my kids, and thanks to Black Friday, it was 60 per cent off!” - Annaliese Dent, Branded Content Manager.

Blunt Metro Compact Umbrella, $95.

“This is the most random present idea but a Blunt umbrella. I constantly rave about it because it's the only one I've ever used that doesn't turn inside out when it's windy. Whoever you give this to will thank you.” - Charlie Begg, Morning Editor.
