Black Friday marks the chaotic kickoff to the holiday shopping season. This year, an estimated 152 million Americans -- yes, half the country -- will be heading out in full force to start crossing items off their lists. Big retailers open their doors earlier and earlier each year, and some eager shoppers even camp out to get their hands on the best deals.
Sure, you could head out to your local mall. But that's boring. Even if you're not an entrepreneur, that doesn't mean you can't shop like one. In an effort to help Santa's helpers get a little more creative this year, we reached out to members of our Board of Directors -- who, we must admit, make some pretty cool stuff -- for their best offerings. From books that inspire (Virgin's Richard Branson) to jewels that sparkle (DANNIJO's Danielle and Jodie Snyder) to eco-friendly soap that will help you clean up a little spilled eggnog (Method's Eric Ryan), our team has got you covered this year. Oh, and did we mention you can buy everything here from the comfort of your own home? Happy gifting!
