In today’s midday dive into the internet’s collective sales bins we found a pair of navy-trimmed Stan Smiths, a tiger-striped fleece lunch box, and a very ’90s Nuptse puffer from the North Face. Plus, there’s some good Valentine’s Day gifts from Anthropologie’s sale-on-sale and Amazon’s candy section that will arrive with plenty of time before the big romantic day.

One Strategist reader wrote in, on a hunt for a short, cool puffer jacket under $180. This retro pick from the North Face made our over-budget list, but at 30 percent off, and in a cheery purple, it’s now decidedly under budget.

Sometimes a gesture of love looks like three jars of colorful M&M’s — or another sweet treat from Amazon’s Valentine’s Day sale, like three-plus pounds of Jujyfruits.

This long-lasting lip gloss, in ten different tones, from inclusive beauty brand Flesh is now half-off.

For an Italian wool throw from Missoni, this under-$200 sunset-toned blanket is a pretty good deal.

Experiment with the animal-print and fleece trends with this fuzzy, statement lunch box that’s fun for adults and children alike.

An outdoorsy Patagonia trucker cap that doesn’t scream Patagonia for the early spring that Punxsutawney Phil predicted.

A soft, bright red beanie for the Valentine who is over Carhartt, from Anthropologie’s 25 percent off sale-on-sale.

Another doubly discounted find is this velvet day-to-night blazer from Madewell’s sale-on-sale. (Don’t forget to use the code REALDEAL at checkout.)

Navy-trimmed Stan Smiths that (arguably) launched the white sneaker renaissance.

Some cheery, striped PJ’s if you called in sick — or are just choosing to stay in bed all day.
