Singles Day is upon us, and the deals are already rolling in. We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Weekend of course - AKA the four-day shopping event where you’ll see huge discounts at most shopping outlets. 

Thanks to Black Friday, November is our favourite time of year to snap up those products we’ve had our eye on for ages - from Dyson hair tools to chic kitchenware - not to mention getting our Christmas gift shopping out of the way for less.

Well, according to ParcelHero, Singles Day eclipsed Black Friday’s global sales last year, making £112bn in comparison to the £53bn spent during Black Friday. With UK sales alone reaching £1.97bn last year, we can expect the Singles Day discounts to be similarly impressive this year, so here are the best deals to shop right now. 

What is Singles Day? 

You may well ask - until recently it wasn’t very well-known in the UK. The sale event originated in China in 1993 and falls on the 11th of November (or 11.11) each year. According to ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks M.I.L.T., Singles Day is essentially the flip side of Valentine’s Day, as it encourages self-gifting and wellness treats - all with a healthy discount to boot. You can count us in.

It’s also a brilliant way to get ahead of the Black Friday sales (which we all know can be pretty manic, with stock selling out at lightning speed). It's a great way to get your Christmas shopping done early and utilise some great discounts on beauty, fashion and home gifts.

As a shopping editor, it’s literally my job to scroll through products online to find the very best, so as you can imagine, I’m pretty good at it. Here are all the best Singles Days deals to be had.

Of course, it helps that Singles Day coincides with Black Friday month, and as loads of retailers currently have early Black Friday offers on, it would be rude of me not to share them with you too.
