Holiday season is in full swing, which means Christmas music playing on the radio, time spent with family and friends, and stressing over the gifts you're going to get for everyone on your list. If you're a college student and worried about getting gifts your friends and family will love without breaking the bank, Black Friday can be a great time to get amazing deals on great gifts.
