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.
It’s the first day of December, and you know what that means: Tons of toys on sale, including a Frozen-themed play set from Fisher-Price and a singing elephant plush toy. I’ve rustled up more seasonal deals like an artificial Christmas tree that’s slim enough for cramped living rooms and a $30 humidifier to sooth stuffy sinuses. If you’re looking for fashion discounts, Everlane is having a sitewide sale (that’s somehow even better than its Black Friday discounts), and I found UGGs for under $60.
Scroll on to find all the goods, and as always, make sure to sign up for our email newsletter for even more sales coverage — including five extra deals each Friday hand-selected by yours truly.
A slightly shorter version of the artificial Christmas tree our junior writer Brenley Goertzen bought last month is over 40 percent off. “It doesn’t take much fluffing to bring out the fullness, and because it’s pre-lit, the assembly process was virtually headache-free,” she writes.
Nordstrom has some pretty nice deals on toys, too, like this Frozen-inspired play set from Fisher-Price.
And I spotted several holiday wreaths from Balsam Hill for half off.
Naadam’s cozy cashmere is half off. I’m intrigued by this boatneck sweater, especially in this eye-catching lilac.
Coyuchi is offering 20 percent off a selection of giftable goods at checkout, including our best overall bathrobe. The Cloud Loom robe is extraordinarily plush, soft, and absorbent. “It’s the dreamiest robe to put on post-shower or over PJs in the winter,” according to Reshma Patel, founder of the jewelry store Quiet Storms.
