With sale season is tantalisingly just around the corner, it was exciting to see that some of the coveted John Lewis Black Friday deals have launched extra early. The British brand has slipped in some exciting discounts across key areas including kitchen appliances, vacuums and home fragrance, so they're not here to play.
We're not ones to sleep on a bargain, so we've scoured the offers to find the must-have items that are likely to sell out before Black Friday actually rolls around (it's on 24th November this year, if you missed the memo).
So here are the deals that aren't worth missing out on, recommended from the Ideal Home team's wealth of experience...
John Lewis Black Friday deals live now
As well as the crème de la crème of the John Lewis Black Friday sale, we're keeping our eagle eyes on any Black Friday offers, and while most brands are keeping their cards close to their chests, we're also logging the very best furniture deals and mattresses discounts you'll want to know about.
Kenwood KMX750 kMix Stand Mixer |
was £419.99, now £229.99 at John Lewis & Partners
Our review for this mixer was so good that it now sits proudly at the top of our best stand mixers guide. It's easy to use and suitable for just about every level of cook or baker. Plus, the offer is on the red, black and cream colourways so you can pick one to suit your scheme.
KitchenAid Mini Stand Mixer in Matte Grey |
was £449.00, now £329.00 at John Lewis & Partners
The larger KitchenAid Artisan mixer received glowing feedback from our reviewer, but not everyone has the surface area or storage space to dedicate to one. This slimmed down version is 20% smaller but has the same strong motor included, as well as a good-sized 3.3L bowl.
Dyson Gen5detect Absolute Cordless Vacuum Cleaner |
was £949.99, now £849.99 at John Lewis & Partners
Yes, this is still a big investment even when on offer, but in our review, the team did name this 'the best Dyson money can buy', so if you've ever wanted one, now's the time. It's incredibly powerful, sleek and easy to use and has nifty laser heads which help with pick up.
Miele Complete C3 Cat & Dog Flex Vacuum Cleaner |
was £389.00, now £299.00 at John Lewis & Partners
If pet hair is one of your cleaning concerns, then, as our reviewers decree, there's no better option than this vacuum. It's got an excellent range of pet hair-relevant accessories, works well on all floor types and has excellent suction power to boot.
Ninja BN495UK Auto-IQ Stand Food Blender |
was £99.99, now £79.99 at John Lewis & Partners
This easy to use product was named 'best personal blender' in our roundup of the best blenders of the year, thanks to its smart settings and being super easy to both use and clean. Plus, it's pretty neat so won't take up too much space in your kitchen.
AEG 8000 LFR84946UC Washing Machine |
was £1,099.00, now £899.00 at John Lewis & Partners
If you've been waiting for a new washing machine, there's no better time than the Black Friday sales. While we've not tested this version, the brand is more than reputable, has a generous 9kg load and super quote (less noisy than an alarm clock or human voice).
John Lewis Mushroom Portable Lamp |
was £65.00, now £52.00 at John Lewis & Partners
We love a wireless light here at Ideal Home, and this dimmable, mushroom shaped buy is just ticket. Plus, it's still available in four colours - Damson (a russet-y red), Haze (a pale blue), Taupe and White.
Floris Cinnamon & Tangerine Room Fragrance |
was £40.00, now £32.00 at John Lewis & Partners
We're all about fragrance right now, and this delightful seasonally evocative scent checks all the boxes. Spritz around your living room as you draw the curtains and switch on the side lamps for the ultimate in cosy luxe.
And, don't worry, if these sell out or some other highly rated items get discounted, we'll make sure to update this page to keep you very much in the loop.
