Fashion, beauty and household items: this is the luxury list for Black Friday

There’s something about Black Friday, that great spending marathon imported from the United States, that makes us a little sick.

PwC research estimates that we will spend £500m more than in 2021, with £8.71 billion in total forecasted sales during the Black Friday period.

Of course, the trick is not to shop with impunity, but to focus on big-ticket items where the savings will really make a difference.
