Our Merry Makers' Top Gift Picks for Bright Friday

Posted by Ava Kuhn on

Our favorite time of year has finally arrived, and we can't wait to spread all the cheer! Our holiday shopping goes into overdrive this week as we start to stock up on ALL the best gifts during our Bright Friday event. There are so many fun and festive styles to choose from this year — we decided to ask around at VB HQ and find out just which picks are topping lists!

Meet the Merry Makers telling us which gifts they're buying during Bright Friday. Along with their favorite choices, read on for tips, tricks and tons of help on what to get everyone you're shopping for this season. All that's left to do is tie it up with a bow ... luckily, we have wrapping paper covered, too!
