5 Criminally Underrated Cyber Monday Deals: Expert Gift Givers Will Appreciate These Tips

BY // 11.27.17

There are two things that make Cyber Monday so remarkable. The first: It’s got some of the best savings you’ll find all year long. As for the second, let’s not forget that it is the only Monday we look forward to all year long. Let’s make the most of it.

Savvy shoppers know today’s the day to start going down the Christmas list. There’s an overwhelming amount of deals out there, but they’re not all created equal. Steer clear of the Amazons and Best Buys and head to the more niche and rewarding sites.

To save you some time, PaperCity has rounded up five great deals for gift-givers with discerning tastes. From statement jewelry to symphony tickets, we’ve got you covered. All of the deals below expire at midnight, so get shopping. Milk your Monday for all it’s worth.

For the beauty with the best:


There are a lot of Cyber Monday beauty deals out there, but we’ve found one that you should really pore over. All cleansing devices by leading skincare provider Clarisonic are 30 percent off today, and there’s a BOGO deal for brush heads.

The discount even applies to holiday sets, giving you prepackaged present ideas. An added bonus you should really soak up: Every purchase comes with a complimentary full-size Lancôme Energie de Vie Moisturizer.

For the sharp dresser:

Menswear Picks By GQ

 We all know the clothes make the man, and this year, your gift will make the man’s day. Shopping for the guy with serious style has never been easier. GQ has done all the legwork, curating a list of the best cyber exclusives on designer menswear pieces. The emphasis is on outwear options, ranging from sleek and sporty bomber jackets to sophisticated overcoats. These 23 selections are sure to satisfy. Snag ’em before midnight.


For the jewel of a friend:

Carbon & Hyde

Jewelry is hands-down the best way to tell your friend, “You’re a gem.” If you’re seeking something sparkly, look no further than celebrity-favorite Carbon & Hyde. Code BLKFRI17 will get you 25 percent off.

The jeweler lives up to its tagline, “Fine with an Edge,” offering pieces that truly stand out. Versatile baubles like the diamond Throne Ring have graced Jessica Alba and Jennifer Aniston at award shows, and you can find the Mikaela and Katie Rings in Nina Dobrev’s glossy Who What Wear spread. Your loved one is sure to find an occasion to flaunt this gift.


For the sommelier in your social circle:   


 Believe it or not, you can find the perfect gift for your relative or pal with the refined palate.

Case in point: the “perfect case” of wine, courtesy of WSJwine. Until midnight, The Wall Street Journal affiliate is offering customers $20 off a build-it-yourself case of 12 bottles, plus a pair of free Riedel crystal glasses. WSJwine makes the process a breeze, allowing customers to personalize their picks based on varietals and price points, along with providing suggestions. Select the vintages yourself, or let the recipient customize.


For the music-lover:

Houston Symphony

Finally, here’s a gift idea to write home about. If you want to shop digitally but think locally, get tickets to select shows from the Houston Symphony — at an impressive 50 percent discount. Price levels from 2 to 4 are available for holiday and winter shows for both 2017 and 2018 seasons, with something for everyone.

There are tickets for Very Merry Pops for the carolers in your life, Tchaikovsky 4 for the diehard classic fans, Oscars Best Original Songs for film buffs, and more.

Trust me, this gift will be music to your friend’s ears.
