It's never too early to start tackling your holiday shopping, and with Black Friday right around the corner, here's everything you'll want on your list. From gaming must-haves like the Xbox One S to beauty deals, this is the place to find great gift ideas—even if they're for yourself!

Xbox One S

We were pumped to see Microsoft unveil its All-Digital Edition of the Xbox One S earlier this year, so you can bet we have our eyes peeled for an epic Black Friday deal. With its 4K streaming and disc-free gaming, the Xbox One S is one of the top gaming consoles for the modern age, and it's on a lot of gamers' wish lists. If you just can't wait for Walmart to announce its 2019 Black Friday deals, you can save almost $50 right now by shopping at the mega retailer.

To buy: $204 (was $250); walmart.com

Beats Headphones

There are lots of things to love about the Beats Studio3 Headphones, but the $350 price point is not one of them. Their noise-cancelling abilities, Wi-Fi connectivity, and fast charge (10 minutes equals three hours) make them worth it, but last year, Kohl's offered them for $280 starting online at 12:01 a.m. on Black Friday, and we are hoping to see an even bigger discount this year!

Munro Booties

Black Friday is the best time to score some good shoe sales, and these Munro booties are at the top of our list. With their simple style and easy side-zip design, they are incredibly versatile and will make an excellent addition to any fashionista's closet. Last year they were 60 percent off during Nordstrom Black Friday deals—fingers crossed the sale is just as good this season! Wear them with a pair of ripped jeans and a moto jacket for a trendy '90s look, or style them for the office with a long-sleeve dress and knit tights. Check out more ways to wear booties.

GoPro HERO7

A must-have for any adventurer and traveler, the GoPro Hero7 camera delivers high-quality, clear pictures and videos. It's also waterproof up to 131 feet and includes voice control, allowing for hands-free commands on the go. You may find several different packages on the internet, but Black Friday came early this year because this bundle—which includes a memory card, case, tripod, and more—is almost 50 percent off right now at Walmart!

Dyson V7 cordless stick vacuum from Walmart photo

Dyson V7 Motorhead Cord-Free Vacuum

Dyson's vacuums are worth the splurge, but that doesn't mean we can't hope for some holiday magic—and this year, we have our eyes on the Dyson V7. Last year, the Dyson V6 was on sale at Walmart for only $159 on Black Friday, and we're hoping the deals are bigger and better this time around. The vacuum maneuvers effortlessly with a cordless design, and its docking station makes it easy to store. It also deep-cleans carpets, captures large crumbs, and transforms into a hand-held vacuum so you can tackle hard-to-reach areas.

To buy: $275; walmart.com

T3 Cura Hair Dryer

We love a good hair care bundle, and this Cura Hair Dryer set does not disappoint. The dryer, which is usually $235, was on sale for $179 during last year's Sephora Black Friday week—and it's currently on sale for only $1 more than its Black Friday price! The dryer comes with two attachments that help smooth the hair cuticle to fight frizz. Grab one as a gift, or treat yourself while this deal lasts.

To buy: $180 (was $235); sephora.com
