Sometimes, the everyday products our editors use don’t make it into our in-depth, long-form comparison pieces, in which we rigorously test similar products. That’s where our Editors’ Picks come in handy—where we highlight everyday products we personally endorse and use on a daily basis, and think you should too.

At Underscore, we’re just like you; We shop for products that make our lives easier, more exciting and more efficient. And while we’ve tested our fair share of products, only a few make enough of an impression to earn a coveted spot in our homes.

With Black Friday almost here, we rounded up some of our editors’ best-loved products on which you can find deals. And if your shopping thirst still hasn’t been quenched, shop our A to Z guide to the best early Black Friday deals.
