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 today’s sweep of the internet sales-o-sphere, we uncovered lots of thoughtful, last-minute Mother’s Day gifts — including luxurious linen sheets, a comfy, colorful sweatshirt, and chocolate. Though, fair warning: Some items likely won’t arrive until after May 9, but better late than never. (As always, if you want more sales coverage, sign up for our email newsletter)

As good in a mosh pit as they are at Sunday brunch.

Fit inspiration can come from anywhere, even a humble tote.

Trust us, these are very good with sandals.

A bunch of sheet sets and quilt sets are on sale at West Elm right now, including these linen ones. Unfortunately, the discount is limited to the “Frost Gray.” Fortunately, Frost Gray kinda rules.

This striped linen quilt and sham set is perfect for anyone that sleeps hot, but still craves the cuddly warmth of a blanket. The sale only applies to the “Natural Flax” color.

The gauze cotton quilt is a bit thicker than the above linen quilt. If you’re the kind of person that finds yourself shivering through the night, even in the summer, this is a great option.
