Gifts you don't buy on Black Friday

- Black Friday. It's three weeks away. What a windfall for deals - for most things anyway. But it's not for everything.

A deal on an iPhone would be nice, wouldn't it? Yes, but Black Friday is not the time, according to DealNews.com. On the iPhone 8, the deal site says you might get a gift card with it, and that's nice, but you'll pay full price. $699 on the lowest end.  Wait until February to purchase an iPhone8. The iPhone X is still in pre-order if you're waiting on that.

Looking for tools as a holiday gift? Great. But not on Black Friday.  Deal News says to get into December and then you'll see prices drop.  

Jewelry always makes a great holiday gift if you're not looking for a deal. Black Friday is a non-starter here. Wait until the new year.  

At some brick and mortar retailers, you'll see a lot of "final sale" items. Great deals, but be careful. You can't return those if they don't work out.
