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’s Friday sales roundup is a true hodgepodge: from child-sized office furniture and a subscription to National Geographic Kids to half-off Gucci sunglasses and lightweight Lululemon leggings, even an in-stock exercise bike (and lots of things that would make thoughtful Father’s Day gifts).
If your kid needs their own workspace, here’s a colorful table with a matching bench. A roll of paper is included, so you can run it across the tabletop and let them go wild with crayons or markers or even finger paint, if you dare.
Take an extra 25 percent off already-on-sale items at Anthropologie, including this lightweight, tie-dyed top with embroidery that’s as easy to throw on as a T-shirt.
The extra discount applies to furniture and home décor too, like this colorful pillow.
There’s still some discounted picks from Zappos’ massive Memorial Day sale, like these all-white Crocs for men or women …
Given that most exercise equipment has been out of stock for weeks, it is a thrill for those who miss the gym to find an in-stock and on-sale recumbent exercise bike.
Used by professional athletes, the Theragun is a high-powered massager that’s specifically designed to reach hard-to-reach areas — like in between your shoulders — without a second set of hands.
As a treat, Shopbop put hundreds of new styles up to 40 percent off, including these summery 501s for when you want to give your sweatpants a break. (And as a bonus: They’d look great with those Supergas.)
A leopard-print bum bag with fringe to throw around your shoulder during your next curbside shopping trip.
Meanwhile, Shopbop’s sibling site East Dane is having a sale that includes lots of potential Father’s Day gifts, like this three-pack of Polo socks.
A five-pound bag of pine sticks — which make excellent fire starters — would be a great Father’s Day gift for the right kind of dad.
These leggings are made of a particularly breathable and moisture-wicking fabric, called Everlux, which means they’re ideal for warm weather workouts.
The last time this dog DNA testing kit — which tells you which breed (or breeds) your pup is — was this cheap was Black Friday.
If your kid wants to get some mail of their own, and you want another activity to keep them busy, here’s a six-month subscription to National Geographic Kids for about a dollar an issue. (Fair warning: The subscription automatically renews.)
Swap out your ratty T-shirt for this tee, with a pocket, from Everlane’s Choose What You Pay.
A colorful, whistling teakettle that’d make a nice Father’s Day gift for the dad who’s more into a cup of tea than coffee.
Moda Operandi is in the midst of a sale, with up to 50 percent off thousands of designer pieces — but that doesn’t mean everything will break the bank, like this very practical-looking denim-and-straw hat.
Some surprisingly sturdy, espadrille-inspired mules that are easy to slip on.
Between a face mask and these extra-large — and half-off — Gucci sunglasses, your face will be just about fully covered the next time you leave the house.
Finally, here’s a pulse massager, which uses electrodes to help you target specific, achy points on your body, from one of our favorite massager brands, Belmint. This price is exclusive to Strategist readers when you use the code STRATMSGR at checkout.
