With Christmas mere days away, time is dwindling for you to gift-shop online, but we’ve been diligently rounding up things that will get there in time from Amazon and beyond. Below, some on-sale things you’ll actually want to buy — some of which (like the light-therapy lamp) will be on your doorstep before Friday morning and others that will make good postholiday buys for yourself in the winter months ahead.

We’ve survived the shortest day of the year, but we have quite a few dark–by–4 p.m. days ahead. For those who struggle with a lack of sunlight, there’s this well-reviewed SAD lamp, which has an expert-recommended brightness of 10,000 lux, is UV free, and can be used both vertically and horizontally. It’s currently on sale for over 50 percent off, and if you order today, it’ll arrive before Christmas.

Madewell is offering up to 50 percent off most of its site when you use the code TINSEL at checkout. That includes this cozy floral sweater, which one reviewer says looks great with a French tuck and is supersoft.

This unique-looking nylon-and-sherpa hybrid jacket is insulated with warm-as-down PrimaLoft and comes in a neutral green and a subtle but eye-catching faded mauve.

We also like this fluffy fleece cardigan, which is made from recycled polyester and has a cropped, feminine fit.

REI is having a last-minute gifts sale, and while its fastest delivery may get you your gifts in time, the brand recommends doing curbside pickup at your local store. This Strategist-favorite TriggerPoint foam roller would make a great gift for just about anyone on your list thanks to its deep-massage abilities (it does so without bruising) and its ideal-for-most size.

This lightweight North Face hoodie is 30 percent off and comes in a cheerful lemony hue.

These waterproof, Thinsulate-lined duck boots will keep your feet toasty and dry on those wintry-mix days.

Wayfair is having an end-of-year clearance sale, and there are lots of good things up for grabs — like this ergonomic office chair, ideal if you want to finally upgrade your work-from-home setup.

For something that feels a little more home than office, there’s this upholstered velvet number that comes in lots of shades — from hunter green to Champagne.

This minimalist-looking shoe rack for your entryway is crafted from bamboo and holds your shoes and umbrellas (and yoga mats).

This expandable bamboo bath caddy is also an organizer — there’s a slot for a wineglass, a cup holder, and even a little perch for your phone.

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. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
