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.
In this week’s dive into the internet’s sales bins, we found a bunch of loungewear for men and women that’s nice enough to wear on a Zoom call with your boss, and some housewares — from Breville, Boy Smells, and Aesop — that’ll make your time indoors a little more comfortable.
All things Patagonia are 30 percent off at REI, including this not-too-heavy puffer that’s ideal for transitional weather and neighborhood walks.
This women’s Better Sweater is as soft as your favorite hoodie (and even has a front pocket for snacks and your phone), but it will look a little more presentable for your next Zoom chat with your boss.
Some tried-and-true Patagonia Baggies, for warmer-weather lounging.
The spring sale at Nordstrom is in full swing, and it’s chock-full of great deals on a bunch of Strategist-approved goods (so much so that we’ve put together a separate post highlighting some of our favorites) — including this jersey robe from Natori.
These buttery soft Eberjey pajama pants are also on sale, for when you’re ready to swap out your current sweatpants.
For the guys, some new joggers from Alo Yoga that are as good for an at-home flow as video gaming on the couch.
If you find yourself with more leftovers than usual, and want to avoid using so much plastic wrap, these recipe-developer-recommended beeswax food wraps are excellent for keeping cut fruits and vegetables and baked goods fresh.
A charming flamingo dog toy in case your pup needs some entertainment, too.
Everlane’s cashmere crewneck sweater is our deal of the day today, but the just-as-soft V-neck is also on sale.
If you’re missing your daily trips to the coffee shop, consider picking up this on-sale Breville espresso machine. It’s small enough to fit on a countertop but still comes with a steamer, so you can heat up milk (and maybe even take up latte art as your new hobby).
David Pogue’s favorite noise-canceling headphones are on sale at Best Buy, in case you need to self-isolate from the people you’re self-isolating with.
There’s a sale-on-sale happening at Anthropologie, with an extra 50 percent off already discounted items — including this tunic dress that’s as comfortable as a nightgown but still Zoom-appropriate.
Or, if you’ve been jealous of all your co-worker’s pups, here’s a Dalmatian-covered pajama set for just $40.
Take an extra 30 percent off this slouchy striped tee at Madewell with the code HAPPYPLACE.
Our managing editor’s favorite 1970s-inspired candle is still on sale at Urban Outfitters (though it’s slightly more expensive now than at the beginning of the week).
You can also stock up on statusy Boy Smells candles at Need Supply, which is still running its sitewide 25 percent off sale.
Or pick up a statusy bath mat from Cold Picnic.
If you want to splurge a bit, this Aesop hand cream, scented with vetiver and bergamot, will keep those overwashed hands from cracking and look nice on your bathroom counter.
