If you can’t stomach the Black Friday crowds, get your shopping done on Cyber Monday

Who doesn’t want to snap up that deep discounted item or make a dent in Christmas shopping without making a huge dent in the wallet?

But if the very idea of standing in a long lineup and braving crowds of harried and cranky shoppers, all to the tune of Madonna’s creepy rendition of Santa Baby, doesn’t get you in the festive spirit, take heart, there’s still Cyber Monday. You can shop online to your heart’s content and still take advantage of plenty of deals without having to fight over the last food processor or crystal wine glasses.

Here are a few great shopping deals we found to get you in the mood for Cyber Monday:

Beyond the Rack: Fashion-forward Appliances, Bedding and Beyond

Find counter- and wallet-worthy deals on housewares like KitchenAid toasters and stand mixers (in silver!), Swarovski crystal glasses, Spode dinnerware (shown above), sheets, barware and more.

Sales are staggered throughout the day (they start at 5 a.m., 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. EST) so you won’t miss out on one thing when shopping for something else.
