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.
If you feel like you missed out on Black Friday or Cyber Monday deals this year, don’t worry: A lot of them have continued through this week. We’re still spotting lots of nice things in the aftermath, including some discounted Red Wing work boots, half-off Nike leggings, and an Instant Pot for the cheapest price we’ve ever seen. And if you’re looking for new markdowns, there’s lots to go through, from Walmart, Nordstrom, and (finally) Barneys.
Amazon has moved from Black Friday and Cyber Monday onto “12 Days of Deals,” with some sizable discounts. This set of rainbow magnetic tiles is one of our picks for the best toys for 3-year-olds (but also happens to be very fun for adults to play with). We’ve never seen the 100-piece set this cheap.
Not a huge discount on this Bose soundbar, but it’s still the lowest price it has ever been.
A holiday gift for the kid (or kid-at-heart) who can’t wait until 2020 to get a Baby Yoda doll.
Most of the clothes and accessories have sold out at Net-a-Porter’s Cyber Week sale, but there’s lots of beauty and skin-care still available, like this tinted moisturizer that’s suitable for all ages.
We were impressed with the sale at Matches Fashion on Cyber Monday, but they’ve gone ahead and discounted things even more — like these spotted Comme des Garçons plimsoles.
These canvas Vejas are even cheaper now than they were on Black Friday.
A sleek and not-too-expensive tank top for the gym.
Yes, these flats are still fairly pricey, but anything from Marni that’s 40 percent off is a good deal.
A surprisingly technical-looking quilted scarf from Isabel Marant.
If you forgot to buy an Instant Pot on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you haven’t missed your shot to get it at the best price we’ve ever seen: It’s still just $49 at Walmart.
There’s lots of new markdowns at Nordstrom, like these colorful rugs from Brooklyn-based designer Aelfie (which we didn’t even know were available at Nordstrom).
Made of recycled plastic, this rug would be nice in a high-traffic part of your home, like the kitchen or bathroom.
You can find Off-White at Nordstrom, too — and now, on sale.
A good mom gift, with a delicate ribbon bow on the heel.
Some darling insulated boot for kids, too.
A fuzzy Champion fanny pack for the hypebeast (or hypebeast-in-training).
We rounded up some of the best deals from Drew Barrymore’s (surprisingly quite nice) home line yesterday, but we wanted to highlight a couple of exceptionally giftable picks here — like this vase.
And these geometric trays that feel very Hay-inspired. They’d make a nice present for a co-worker or boss.
These chairs — from Walmart’s expensive-looking midcentury modern-inspired line MoDRN — also look like they could be from Hay.
This tall, arched floor lamp would be a quick, and under-$50, way to refresh your living room.
A worthy alternative to the Ikea Billy bookshelf that everyone owns, for a very similar price.
This stately, geometric candle holder would be a nice host gift (especially if you get a pair).
An everyday back from Topo Designs that’s not too bulky.
A turquoise puffer that’ll stand out in a sea of black, navy, and olive green.
A rarely-on-sale Mansur Gavriel purse that’s now more than $100 off.
This utility-style jumpsuit sold out quickly when Alex Mill launched earlier this year, so it’s a treat to see it on sale.
