If you thought Amazon Prime Day was good just wait until you check out what the retailer has in store for the holiday season. Amazon officially launched its Black Friday Deals Week with thousands of discounted items that are bound to check a few (if not all) boxes from your holiday shopping lists.

From November 20 to 27, Amazon is dropping daily Black Friday deals on everything from furniture and decor to the latest home gadgets, like the all-new Echo Dot, Instant Pot, Molekule Air Purifier, and more. But these deals won't last all week — many are only running for 24 hours (that is, if they don't sell out first).

And let's not forget small businesses on the site. From November 26 to 30, customers can shop Small Business Holiday Deals and scope out gifts from the Small Business Gift Guide and Handmade Holiday Gift Guide.

To top it off and make your holiday shopping experience even less stressful, Amazon extended its returns window so you can make free returns until January 31.
