Happy Black Friday, everyone! I’m old enough to remember the days where you had no choice but to be up and out the door by 4 AM if you wanted to score any kind of post-Thanksgiving deals. I love that, these days, bargain hunters can more often than not shop from the comfort of their own home. And as someone who enjoys the thrill of saving money wherever I can, today is the equivalent of my own personal Olympics, as I search out deals on gifts and nab a few things for myself I had been holding off on as well.

On Wednesday, we brought you an initial look at some killer Black Friday deals, which included retailers like Amazon, Cavity Colors, Fright-Rags, Vinegar Syndrome, Severin Films, Mixtape Massacre, Final Girl Designs, HBO, and Entertainment Earth. For today’s installment of Daily Dead’s Annual Holiday Gift Guide, we’re bringing you even more online bargains from the likes of Creepy Company, Tees-En-Scene, Pixel Elixir, Middle of Beyond, Waxwork Records, Tee Public, Hot Topic, Gris Grimly, Tee Fury and many more.

Then, we’ll see you back here on DD early on Monday, as we take a look at some horror-themed housewares, ornaments and Cyber Monday discounts to save you even more cash this holiday season. And as always, Daily Dead will be giving away a prize pack of movies and goodies for 10 lucky readers, thanks to this year’s HGG sponsor RLJE Films. Winners will receive one copy of the upcoming Christmas anthology All the Creatures Were Stirring, one other title from RLJE and a few other horror-tastic surprises, just in time for the holidays.

To enter, send an email to contest@dailydead.com with “Holiday Gift Guide” in the subject line and be sure to include your full name and mailing address as well  (limited to those who are eighteen years of age or older that live in the United States. Only one entry per household will be accepted).
