Black Friday is still a day away, but you wouldn't know that from all the deals that are already on offer (maybe we ought to start calling it Black November). At any rate, you can beat the crowds and get a head start on your holiday shopping with these discounted gifts for $50 or under. We'll keep this list updated as more prices are slashed.

For even more online shopping deals, see our roundup of the best deals under $30 and best deals for $100 and under. If you don't mind spending a little extra, we also have the best Black Friday deals under $250. Happy shopping!

As always, all the prices here are accurate at the time of publication but are subject to change. And if you're looking for ideas on how to have a low-stress holiday, visit our Holiday Survival Guide for tips on how to get through the four-day weekend without too much strain.

Today only, the Rose Gold edition of QuietComfort 35 II is on sale for $250 or $100 off. The black and silver version will be on sale throughout Black Friday weekend for $280. With the arrival this year of Bose's new Noise Cancelling 700 Headphones ($400), you can expect to see continued sales on the QuietComfort 35 II, which remains a very good headphone that's arguably slightly more comfortable than the 700.
