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.

So many early Black Friday sales launched this week, and while we’re covering them all here, we pulled out some of the best for our Friday Sales roundup. There are some very gift-y items in Nordstrom, Amazon, and Anthropologie’s clearance bins. Or if you’re feeling like giving something to yourself ahead of the holidays, you may want to check out Rifle Paper Co. or Material Kitchen’s sales. And as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage.

If you’re looking for an activity to keep kids occupied during winter break, this National Geographic science kit has 45 activities, ranging from miniature rocket launches to volcano eruptions. (And the last time it was this cheap was during Black Friday last year.)

This jelly-shaped lip treatment from Tonymoly would make a nice stocking stuffer for teens.

Dyson V8 Animal Extra Vacuum

We’ve never seen this Dyson V8 cordless vacuum drop below $300 — until today.

In addition to being on sale for Nordstrom’s Holiday Deals event, some clearance items are an extra 25 percent off through this weekend — including this layerable scoop neck sweater with elegant rib detailing.

From $45 for 3

A trio of ultrasoft Calvin Klein boxer briefs makes a practical gift they’ll actually use.

Sale items are an extra 30 percent off this weekend at Anthropologie. This charming baby-shower gift set includes a trio of a matching cotton blanket, rattle, and booties.

A surprise find in Anthropologie’s clearance bin was this navy blue Donni sweatshirt at 64 percent off — that’s still available in all sizes.

Here’s something you can gift to your partner: A couples vibrator kit from Strategist-favorite Dame. It comes with a machine-washable pouch so you can store everything discreetly.

You can’t go wrong with a fuzzy throw, especially in this ombre pattern that’s designed to look like the sunrise.

Joe Jonas’s favorite all-white sneakers from Koio are 25 percent off on Friday, November 11 (but if you’re reading this over the weekend, you can still get them for 20 percent off through November 30).

Everything is 20 percent off at Material, including its recently launched drinking glasses.

My favorite cutting board is also included in the sale. It’s the miniature version of our pick for best overall cutting board, and it comes in six colors that make chopping a little more fun.

I also love this soft-edge spatula, which is wonderful with everything from eggs to stir-fries. It can withstand high temperatures — up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit — and won’t scratch up your metal pans.

REI’s Gear Up Get Out sale started today, and even if you’re not already a member, you can get up to 30 percent off a ton of outdoor gear. I have two of these lightweight camping chairs, and they’re great for toting down to the crag or using in the backyard.

These nonrestrictive shorts are designed for running, but they’re stylish and comfortable for just about any outdoor activity (even if it’s just running errands).

Here’s an actually-nice-looking bike helmet that’s great for commuters.

Osea’s hyaluronic serum — that Eve says is extremely hydrating but not greasy — is 30 percent off at Ulta.

At Rifle Paper Co., home items are 30 percent off with the code HOME30. That includes most of its new holiday décor, like this porcelain mug.

You can also stack the code on already-discounted products, which takes this sweet catchall tray down to $13.

Black Friday has arrived at Our Place already, and everything is up to 30 percent off. You can nab the highly coveted do-everything Always Pan for $95 …

… Or stock up on its stackable drinking glasses ahead of holiday guests.

Some already-on-sale items at Levi’s are an extra 50 percent off. The jeans are pretty picked through, but clothing items, like this quilted trucker jacket, have a large variety of sizes available.

This silly puffy bucket hat from Levi’s collaboration with the Simpsons is only $11.

Richer Poorer just added a lot of loungewear items to its sale section. Here are some men’s pants that are half-trouser, half-PJs.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels.
