You might be taking it easy this short work week, but the internet’s post-holiday sales are still going strong. We found dozens of actually good deals — up to 55 percent off — on lots of seasonally appropriate items, like a cozy cotton quilt, an insulated parka, and even some stylish rain boots. (And because we couldn’t help ourselves, a few Valentine’s Day gifts for him and her, too.)

Backcountry is taking up to 60 percent off cold-weather gear for men and women, including this insulated parka that’s still available in sizes S to XXL and four different seasonal colors (though we think the black pictured is always a foolproof choice).

And here’s a water- and wind-resistant quarter zip to layer during dog walks, in a soothing French blue.

If your New Year’s resolution includes eating more fruits and vegetables, this NutriBullet blender cuts through everything from celery stalks to frozen strawberries, and even features a heating element for soups and purées.

At Sephora, we found Rio’s favorite Fenty Beauty contour stick — it “never, ever looks orange or overly warm,” she says — for under $20. Shades are limited, but if you can find your color, it’s a rare steal.

We also spotted Fenty Beauty’s “weightless” Mattemoiselle matte lipstick, another Rio favorite, for half the price.

A rummage through Nordstrom’s reliably good sale bins yielded this Sandy Liang–esque color blocked fleece, for a decidedly non–Sandy-Liang–esque price.

Today only, Schoolhouse is taking up to 30 percent off all bedding, like this natural linen duvet cover that’ll go with any kind of bedroom décor.

And this subtly striped cotton quilt, finished with a not-too-sweet diamond stitch.

If you’re low on Valentine’s Day gift ideas, we think this canvas backpack would make for a particularly stylish commuter bag for him once the office reopens. (But until then, he can use it to carry his extra masks, hand sanitizer, and picnic blanket to the park and back.)

Here’s a pair of actually comfortable rain boots that, with the right socks, can be worn year-round.

Let the record show that we love a good jumpsuit — including this Good American one with a figure-hugging belted waist and collared neckline.

We think any Valentine would appreciate a pair of buttery soft leather gloves this winter. (And she’ll have no idea you snagged them on sale.)
