Once Thanksgiving is over, thousands of turkey-filled families will descend upon malls, outlets and boutiques hoping to find significant markdowns on their holiday presents. While Black Friday is widely regarded as one of the best days to score a stellar shopping deal, anyone who has braved the hectic lines knows how stressful the storefronts can be.

If you’re interested in skipping the madness, we’ve rounded up five Boston-based e-commerce companies that let you shop without ever leaving your cozy spot by the fireplace — and a few are offering some pretty serious Black Friday deals!

 

RueLaLa Boston eCommerce

Rue La La is a members-only e-commerce site that lets users find private sale boutiques featuring big brands like Valentino, Kate Spade, Cole Haan and Louis Vuitton. Though users can often find significant markdowns on clothing and accessories, right now the company is offering expedited shipping and extended returns.

 

 

 
Wayfair Boston eCommerce

 

Decorate your home using Wayfair, which offers a wide selection of home furnishings and décor across various styles and price points. By shopping the early-bird Black Friday special, you can save up to 80 percent off bedding and sheets, and up to 70 percent off Wayfair’s sofas, sectionals, headboards, lighting and appliances.

 

 
 
M.Gemi Boston eCommerce

 

You might have to pay full price for M.Gemi’s show-stopping Italian shoes, but whoever you gift them to will walk in luxury. M.Gemi works with small specialist workshops where shoes are still handmade, following steps that are over a hundred years old. Each Monday, new limited edition styles are offered so you can rest assured that your present will be a unique one.

 

 
 

 

For the gem-lover in your life, Gemvara gives consumers the chance to design one-of-a-kind rings, necklaces, earrings and more using the company’s jewelry customization process. Creators can choose from different metals and gems to ensure their gift will be truly special.

 

 
 

 

Buy your favorite trendsetter tops, bottoms and scarves that have been made with innovative materials to avoid wrinkling, wear and tear. Ministry Apparel offers traditional men’s and women’s clothing that are classic in appearance but high performance in design.
