All of the Best Post-Christmas Sales

While most of December is spent finding gifts for others, the time between Christmas and early January is always ideal for finding gifts for yourself thanks to the glut of year-end sales to be shopped. So, if you didn’t unwrap those fresh bedsheets or that cozy sweater or those new waterproof boots, now would be the time to treat yourself while retailers from Brooklinen to Everlane to Nordstrom are slashing prices on countless items. As anyone who has shopped a post-Christmas sale knows, the best deals can often be buried, which is why we’ve been keeping an eye on all of them in order to find the stuff worth spending money on. To make this list easier to shop, we’ve arranged it alphabetically by retailer (in Strategist speak, that’s from Anthropologie to Zappos). Where applicable, we’ve also noted how long each retailer’s sale lasts.


Anthropologie’s end-of-year “Winter Tag Sale” is a sale-on-sale situation where more than 1,000 already-on-sale items (excluding furniture) are an extra 40 percent off. The additional discount on eligible products, including the ones featured below, applies automatically once you’ve added them to your cart.


Over at Backcountry, a bunch of stuff from some hardwearing brands like Patagonia, Arc’teryx, The North Face, Fjallraven, and more is up to 70 percent off. There’s no end date listed for the deals, which suggests they could end sooner rather than later (so shop accordingly).


The After-Christmas Sale at Bloomingdale’s, meanwhile, is on through December 31. Lots of full-price items are up to half off, and you can get an additional 50 percent off a bunch of already-on-sale stuff marked “Extra 50 Percent Off Clearance.” (Final prices for sale-on-sale items will appear when you check out.)


Through January 1, Brooklinen, a maker of some of our favorite cozy sheets (and shower curtains and quilts and sweatpants) is offering a 15 percent discount on all of its linens, including the below linen-sheet set that made our list of the best linen sheets. Its loungewear (including robes) is discounted even more at 25 percent off. There’s no minimum purchase price required to get the discounts, which will be applied automatically at checkout.


Coach’s (extended) post-Christmas sale runs through January 18, offering 50 percent off women’s handbags and accessories. Using the code FREESHIP at checkout will also get you free shipping.
