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.

This week, our deep dive into the internet’s various sales bins unearthed quite a few Mother’s Day gifts (from a robe to an apron to a knife set to binoculars), as well as lots of goodies for, well, you.

“Be the bouquet,” says the description of this Diane von Furstenberg pencil skirt. All right!

Almost everything at Need Supply is 30 percent off — including Status Candles from Boy Smells.

These classic Blazer Nikes have a handy zipper for getting them on and off easily.

Just a five-pack of classic Calvin Klein undies. (A five-pack of thongs is on sale, too.)

Some things have been added to Nordstrom’s spring sale, like this perfect layering track jacket from Adidas.

Can we interest you in some subtle snakeskin (not real, of course) Birkenstocks? (Or if you’d rather … something a little more metallic.)

Speaking of sales we’ve covered, here’s something we missed from Anthropologie’s extra 50 percent off sale items sale: a lovely set of four dinner plates.

And this sweet off-the-shoulder Maeve blouse.

Aaand speaking of sales on sales, there’s an extra 30 percent–off-sale on sale items at Urban Outfitters. This shiny little Eastpak backpack has a 30-year (!) warranty.

Throw in this two-pack of very cheap Nike socks while you’re at it. (These Nike socks and these Nike socks are also on super-sale).

And this Nike Dri-Fit workout shirt that’s also on sale in gray.

The kids love Champion. This sweatshirt says “Champion Products” a few times on the back.

A pretty, graphic (but not overbearingly so) shower curtain that’ll zhuzh things up in the bathroom.

Two things moms love: Villeroy & Boch and teacups. A quartet of these would make a nice Mother’s Day gift.

Incidentally, your mom never needs to know that this cheery red robe was just … $8.

Just some high-rise super-skinny jeans from Levi’s in a nice shade of faded black denim.

This Bobbi Brown five-in-one palette (that includes a corrector, a creamy concealer, a skin foundation stick, sheer-finish pressed powder, and bronzing powder) is available, and on sale, in a slew of shades.

Eep! It’s almost shorts season!

These are a fun pair of slides if we’ve ever seen ’em.

A good price right here for some Free People high-waisted, cropped white pants.

This Lululemon sports bra is a little longer than their usual sports bras (for a little extra coverage for those who may want to wear this sans T-shirt). Said one happy reviewer: “I haven’t at any moment found myself worrying about any nip slips!”

And a simple, breathable racerback tank.

A great pair of knotted Rebecca Minkoff slides.

Hanky Panky’s classic thong in a pleasing floral pattern.

Some extremely cute kiddie Hunter rain boots so they can jump in puddles at will.

Becca’s bright-red lipstick promises to last up to eight hours.

Hey! It’s our weekly look into Everlane’s sale section for things that we didn’t catch the first time around that are now very seasonally appropriate. This polka-dotted cami looks like silk, but is surprisingly machine washable.

This GoWeave wrap dress can be worn as pictured here or with a white T-shirt underneath.

Wayday’s come and gone, but there are still some excellent deals to be had at Wayfair. This gray cotton duvet cover is very calming. And has a zipper which makes it much less maddening to work with.

On the other end of the spectrum, our favorite splurgy linen bedding is a little more affordable at the moment at Huckberry, where all Matteo bedding is 30 percent off.

At press time, there were only sizes medium and large left, but this is such a nice tee (for such a nice price) that we had to include.

A strapless dress from Eloquii (as its description aptly says) “made for boomerangs.”

A slightly more everyday dress from Eloquii (with subtle white piping).

This amethyst ring from Coach features a delicate chain, for a “layered look.”

These tan, eyelet-embroidered See by Chloe sandals are also available in black.

We can’t resist a tie-strap tank, we just can’t.

We’re including the back view of this Solid & Striped bathing suit because of the buttons! (And because the front is quite straightforward.)

A shibori pillow that’ll make your couch feel a bit more “with it.”

Sur La Table’s clearance section is an extra 20 percent off, and there are some real goodies (that would be good gifts for the mom who likes to cook) in there, like this baker’s apron.

Or this three-piece J.A. Henckles knife set that features a chef’s, paring, and prep knife.

For my birders out there, these Bushnell binoculars (a favorite of Strategist writer Steven John) are on sale, today only, at Amazon.
