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.

It is extremely fortuitous that right as everyone is getting serious about their holiday shopping there are just zillions upon zillions of sales going on. We rounded up a ton of gift-appropriate deals (as well as some stuff for yourself).

To those who say you can’t wear a pair of violet-colored heels in winter, we say, Oh yeah? This is one of several pairs of shoes has been added to Everlane’s Choose What You Pay section.

An ever-so-slightly more practical option: a pair of flats with a “modern point.”

And these classic Street Shoes that are not quite a sneaker and not quite a not-sneaker.

$76

It’s hard to see in the photo, but this A.P.C. striped top is actually ribbed.

Though it’s hard to fathom, a Mansur Gavriel bag under $300 is actually a “steal.”

Stumped as to what to get a traveling-type in your life? A Smythson leather luggage tag is hard to argue with.

One of our favorite hair dryers — again, good gift! — is 25 percent off.

For a skin-care junkie, this gift box from Ulta (that was on sale during Black Friday) is chock-full of minis, including a Clarins Hydra Essential Moisturizing Reviving Mask, a Kiehl’s Rare Earth Mask, Philosophy’s Anti-Wrinkle Miracle Worker + Moisturizer, and a Tula Skin Reviving Treatment Pad.

A Thom Browne tie is usually prohibitively expensive, and right now it’s less so.

The Carhartt hat is still the hat.

Outdoor Voices is having a fleece sale, and this fuzzy sweatshirt (that also comes in safety-cone orange) is 31 percent off.

This sweat-wicking half-zip is meant to keep you warm when sweating in the cold.

Ganni Lurex Tiger Tee
$50
$50

The discounts at Need Supply are quite good right now. And if you’re in the market for a Party Top, might we suggest this Ganni tee.

$148

Pick up this Party Skirt while you’re at it.

A good gift for a gym rat, this backpack actually scrunches into the little front pouch.

It’s rare to see a pair of Adidas by Stella McCartney leggings for under $50.

We, in fact, own this bag, and use it for weekend trips (and it’s so roomy, it can fit our clothes and our baby son’s).

This leather Baggu tote is also on sale in a “pale orchid.”

Jacquemus Le Sac Bracelet Purse
$157
$157

This Jacquemus “bracelet purse” is ideal for the Fashion Person in your life who has everything.

A pair of Rachel Comey earrings that feel very holiday-party appropriate.

Fred Perry Classic Wash Bag
$30
$30

This Fred Perry dopp kit’s good for the guy who’s still carrying his toothbrush in a Ziploc bag.

And if his Carhartt’s getting a little ratty.

For those who want to essentially be wrapped in a sleeping bag all winter. (A stylish, slim-fitting sleeping bag, that is.)

Chunky buttons, stripes — two things that are hard for us to resist.

Sunday Riley Good Genes
$72
$72

Over at Anthropologie … everything is 30 percent off, which means Sunday Riley’s Good Genes is the cheapest it gets.

$86

This cozy sweater comes in a whole slew of colors.

In case you missed our deal of the day, these make a pretty much foolproof gift. Incidentally, there’s a ton of Eberjey lounge- and sleepwear on sale.

Speaking of cozy things, this faux-fur blanket also makes a lovely gift.

Patagonia Retro-X Fleece Jacket
$159
$159

Meanwhile, at Urban Outfitters, the whole shebang is 20 percent off (with some exclusions). Most of the Patagonia stuff is not on sale, but this fleece is. These Patagonia gloves would make a nice gift, incidentally.

$48

This retro-looking headband is insulated with 700-fill down.

$96

Some slightly more grown-up–looking Docs.

$105

There’s a Winter Warm-Up sale afoot at Shopbop, where a slew of cold-weather wares are 25 percent off. These are some very cozy-looking Hunter snow boots.

For the days when it’s not blizzarding, just freezing.

This hoodie inspired someone to write this amazing review/poem: “Wicking enough to mash some pedals on the way to the laboratory in the morning, comphy enough to keep the hood up while grinding into the coursework, hot like a sauna generating all the heat one needs at the weight rack before spinning home looking over ol’ windy on the way back to the bat cave.”

Our colleagues at the Cut tested Luluelmon’s moisturizer for sweaty faces back in July when it came out, and the reviews were mixed if generally positive.

These festive “glovelettes” from Eileen Fisher are a good gift for a sassy mom.

Coach Drea Boot
$140

At Coach, all sale items are an extra 20 percent off, which means now might be the time to invest in some leopard Chelsea boots.

$140 at Coach
Buy
with code: EXTRA20

And now for a few bags that would make excellent gifts. This cross-body is perfect for traveling.

$118

And a very work-appropriate tote in oxblood.

$118 at Coach
Buy
with code: EXTRA20

And the phone pouch that was yesterday’s deal of the day! (It is now $18 cheaper.) Though it’s sold out in oxblood.

If mom missed out on the Black Friday Instant Pot deals, and her tastes run slightly froufrou — this is the cheapest Instant Pots ever get.

For the friend who’s not sure how much Greyhound blood is in his rescue pup.

One of our favorite pieces of New York City merch.

Today (Friday) only, a slew of toys are on sale at Amazon, like this spiffy, toddler-friendly Radio Flyer roadster. (If you need more kids’ gift guidance, might we suggest perusing our definitive toy gift guide.)

Lastly, we’re obsessed with this Eamesian craft table-and-chairs set.
