You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.

The crazy post-Thanksgiving sales may be over, but we’re just gearing up for high gifting season now — lots of retailers have put a huge selection of things on sale, from KitchenAids at Macy’s to 15 days of deals at Uniqlo. This weekend, if you spend $50 at Zappos, too, you’ll earn a $20 gift credit to be used on a later purchase (not quite a sale, but a nice offer nonetheless). All that, plus Everlane goodies, Coach wallets, Madewell scarves, J.Crew sweaters, and even an Isabel Marant ring for $29.

Everlane Cotton Mockneck Tee

We’re big fans of the mockneck around here — the sophistication of a turtleneck with none of the itch — and especially like the vibrant color on this Everlane mockneck T-shirt.

Longchamp Large Le Pliage Tote

A classic weekend bag for a reason — durable, feather-light, and unassuming. It comes in a few colors, too.

J.Crew Everyday Cashmere Regular Fit Crewneck Sweater

A cozy cashmere sweater that can be a wardrobe workhorse through the holiday season and long beyond.

Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA Stainless Steel Mug

One of our favorite water bottles — the one that kept a vodka-soda ice-cold at the beach for hours — is on sale for just a few hours.

Natori Notch Collar Sleep Shirt

The comfort of wearing a ratty college T-shirt to bed, only you wouldn’t be embarrassed to be caught in it.

Clarks Men’s Bushacre 2 Chukka Boot

A very-on-sale pair of black leather chukkas for when it’s cold but not snowing.

$59 at Macy's

Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm

We’ve already named this a great cheap stocking stuffer from an expensive brand, and it’s actually on sale, too.

Veja Wata Canvas Sneakers

If a pair of Chuck Taylors spent junior year in Paris, they’d come back looking like this.

Sorel Caribou Boot

A very heavy-duty pair of snow boots for the grossest New York days.

KitchenAid KSM75 4.5 Qt. Classic Plus Stand Mixer

Because cookie season has already begun — or get it as a less-expensive-than-it-looks gift for the baker in your life.

Everlane Modern Boyfriend Jean

Some tapered but not too skinny jeans that editors go nuts over.

Nautica Men’s Plush Robe

Dad will find this robe so comfy he might just put it on right after opening it Christmas morning.

$39 at Macy's
with code: FRIEND
Coach Skinny Wallet

We love the deep emerald on this long wallet that has 15 (!) card slots.

Madewell Medium Leather Transport Tote

A very popular tote that appeared in our best work bag story, this leather number comes with an optional crossbody strap, too.

J.Crew Mercantile Men’s Supersoft Wool Blend Crewneck Sweater

You may have heard that J.Crew’s lower-priced line Mercantile is being discontinued. Now, everything from the brand is on sale for half off at Amazon, like this punchy crewneck.

J.Crew Flannel Pajamas

Cold winter nights call for proper pajamas, and these 100 percent cotton versions will only get better with time.

Polo Ralph Lauren Everyday Watch Beanie

We’re ordinarily not big on logos, but the vintage script on this Polo beanie’s patch is actually really nice.

Kenzie Faux Shearling Coat

An oversize coat that’s like a teddy bear you can wear.

Uniqlo Men’s U Wool Blend Chesterfield Coat

This Chesterfield would look extremely dignified over a mustard sweater, but it would look very cool worn over a hoodie and T-shirt, too.

Rag & Bone Colorblock Leather Card Case

A nice little gift for a teenage girl who’s just started earning babysitter money.

Coach Delaney Signature Buckle Heel Bootie

With a pair of skinny jeans, these booties would look very “off-duty model.”

Crewcuts by J.Crew Glitter Penguin Bag

A six-inch tall glittery bag for her little L.O.L. Surprise toys.

G. Sport Muscle Tank

A tencel-lycra-silver shirt that fights odor when you’re breaking a sweat at barre or piloxing. You’ll look put-together even when it’s drenched.

Everlane Square Jean Shirt

The best part about this shirt is its square hem — sure, you could tuck it in, but it looks equally as great just loosey-goosey.

Penfield Kasson Mountain Parka

Penfield makes bright-colored coats in just the perfect shades — this yellow (but not too yellow) parka is surprisingly flattering on every skin tone.

The North Face Nuptse Vest

A nice winter layer for those days you don’t want to go full down parka.

Mud Pie Sheep Fleece Blanket

This three-foot by two-foot is the perfect starter “blankie” for a 2-year-old.

J.Crew Popcorn Cable Knit Sweater

It’s not a regular cable-knit sweater; it’s a cable-knit sweater with “popcorn” pom-poms.

Daniel Wellington Classic Roselyn Nylon Strap Watch, 36mm

An extremely classic-looking watch (we’ve written about Daniel Wellington before) that’s much less expensive than it looks.

Crewcuts by J.Crew Panda Balaclava

Because why shouldn’t a 4-year-old should look adorable while braving the cold?

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

Our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton is a big fan of the Nars creamy concealer, which has earned its own cult status.

Nubby Blanket Scarf

A fuzzy-wuzzy scarf for those days you can’t bear leaving your comforter at home.

Martha Stewart Collection Quick Dry Reversible Towel Collection, 100% Cotton

There’s something extremely appealing about the ribbed, scarf-like texture of these cotton towels.

$6 at Macy's
with code: FRIEND
Carter’s Toddler Girls Hooded Faux-Sherpa Jacket

A fuzzy jacket with cat ears? Slam dunk of a 3-year-old gift.

$11 at Macy's
with code: FRIEND
Mario Badescu Facial Spray Trio

This trio of Mario Badescu facial sprays isn’t too discounted, but it’s a small price to pay for a midday refresher at your desk.

Madewell Multi Stripe Scarf

A truly wrappable scarf with big stripes that have an almost Pendleton-like quality.

Timberland PRO Direct Attach 6” Steel Toe

Very tough work boots that are as cool-looking as they are functional.

Snow Day Robe

We’re eyeing this furry robe for those snow days with a very loose definition of “getting dressed.”

Everlane Relaxed Soft Cotton Shirt

If you look closely, there are just the faintest little stripes on this shirt — we especially love the delicateness of the trim collar.

Casper Mattress (Full)

One of the best mattresses we tried, this Casper (and all Caspers) are on sale for ten percent off this weekend with the code GIFTME.

$805 at Casper
with code: GIFTME
J.Crew Grosgrain-trimmed striped cotton-jersey top

Who knew a $33 striped cotton shirt could look so elegant?

Isabel Marant Gold & Black Resin Ring

Don’t let the picture fool you: This is a ring and not a bracelet. Its pretty, stacked quality makes it look like three rings in one.
