You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again to share 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.
There’s no sugarcoating it: This is going to be a long winter. And as the cold creeps in, we need all the joy (and warmth!) we can find. This week, we scoured the internet to bring you delightful gifts (for your loved ones or yourself) from Zara, Anthropologie, the North Face, and more. So, if you’re in search of an on-trend puffer jacket, extra-cozy bedding, or a soup-ready thermos to help you beat the soon-to-be frigid weather, look no further. And if you need a pick-me-up, there’s some glitter and pizzaz waiting for you as well.
Macy’s has continued to tease its Black Friday sales, and there’s lots of stuff to keep you cozy and warm this winter, like this not-too-heavy knit throw.
For a luxurious but cozy bedding option, look no further than this velvet quilt from Martha Stewart. And if red isn’t your color, it’s also available in navy and hunter green.
If your taste trends more minimalist than Martha Stewart, we love this simple linen duvet cover from Parachute that’s now 20 percent off.
Spice up your workout — or your work-from-home — with these splashy zebra-print leggings. (We think they’re Joe Exotic meets Carrie Bradshaw.)
Walmart’s Black Friday sale has launched, and there’s lots of on-sale picks for the whole family, including this megaset of Legos for any of the youngsters on your holiday shopping list.
Don’t want to splurge on a Vitamix? Here’s an affordable yet functional blender from Ninja.
We found lots of Everlane on sale at Nordstrom today — like this rarely on-sale wool-blend sweater.
And here’s a colorful — and water-resistant — puffer jacket for under $100.
Plus, the brand’s classic wide-leg crop pants are a steep 50 percent off.
Whether you’re camping or just want to keep your coffee hot at your desk, this industrial-chic Stanley mug is a great option.
There’s no excuse to neglect your pearly whites when this Oral-B electric toothbrush — with Bluetooth connectivity — is almost 50 percent off.
We wrote about Osmo in our guide to remote learning, and today, their starter kit for younger kids is on sale.
The classic North Face Denali will never go out of style.
And you can pair it with this industrial travel bag.
Here’s a very nice gift for a pregnant woman or a new mom (or really anyone who likes shiny things).
Winterize your classic jean jacket with a cool 40 percent off.
Some nearly half-off on-trend platforms from Zara.
And a chic minimalist puffer to pair them with.
