58 Gift Ideas for Black Friday Shopping

— November 9, 2008 — Special
Black Friday is traditionally one of the biggest shopping days of the year, if not the biggest; local news broadcasts frequently feature long Black Friday lines, stampedes and inevitable injuries sustained from killer department-store sales.

Our Black Friday cluster gives you some great ideas for everyone on your shopping list, and takes the slowed global economy into consideration with a number of budget-friendly gifts. Best of all, many of these items are available online, so you don't have to brave the Black Friday mall crowd.
