When we sorted through the internet’s proverbial sales bins today, we unearthed a bunch of warm-weather workout gear, some on-sale men’s basics, and a couple giftable home décor items for Mom (but don’t dillydally: shipping delays are common right now, and Mother’s Day is right around the corner).


It’s getting warmer, so if you’re looking to go on a (socially distant, masked) run outside, Strategist senior writer — and five-time marathoner — Karen Iorio Adelson recommends Lululemon’s breezy Hotty Hot style for hot weather. The magenta-toned shorts are available in sizes 8, 10, and 12, and most of the other on-discount colors only have a few sizes left too, so don’t dillydally.


A short-sleeve Nike running tee for him, which we’ve said is moisture-wicking and non-smelling, even in warm weather.

We like the gathered-twist detail on the hem of this otherwise classic black tee.

This patchouli-scented candle from Jonathan Adler’s home-accessories line comes in a leaf-emblazoned ceramic vessel, making it a nice Mother’s Day gift for the mom who likes nice smells and status ceramics.

Another giftable, discounted item at Shopbop’s (ongoing) home décor sale is this orchid-printed cushion case from Milanese designer La Double J, for the mom who likes designer brands.

$30 for 3

Basketball player James Harden says that Polo Ralph Lauren V-necks are his favorite tees, and right now they’re on sale for $10 each (down from their usual price tag of $14 per shirt).

Calvin Klein 3-Pack Boxer Briefs

Pair the V-necks with a 3-pack of these cool-guy-approved Calvin Klein boxer briefs, which Phillip Wong, the co-founder and creative director of Hawthorne, describes as “exceptional, not too tight, and very low-maintenance.”

Topman Runner Shorts

Chris Black recommends working from home in a pair of “simple, comfortable, breathable” shorts, and this satiny pair is just $14.

These pants from Patagonia are a gorpcore take on sweatpants, complete with four-way-stretch and a drawstring waist.

If you’ve got an iPad but want to make it easier to type on, this keyboard is what Helen Hou-Sandi, of 10up and WordPress, uses to work remotely, and right now it’s just under $100 at Best Buy.
