In today’s deep dive into the internet’s sales bins, we found a bunch of items to make this cold weather a bit cozier. There’s a hoodie for him and stretchy-and-soft shorts for her for just lounging around, a couple of under-$100 parkas for when you dare to venture out, and some fur-lined leather gloves (that would make for a great Valentine’s Day gift for the partner with cold hands).

This Brooklyn-ubiquitous coat from Uniqlo’s collaboration with Marimekko is now over half off, just in time for a predicted six inches of snow. The wine-toned parka is available in sizes XXS–XXL, but it’s also discounted in gray and dark-blue colorways in more limited sizes.

During the past umpteenth months of staying at home — and realizing just how much dust accumulates around your house — we’ve seen this expert-recommended vacuum cleaner on sale at Best Buy a couple of times, but it’s never been so deeply discounted.

Among the thousands of Amazon reviewers who give this brand’s heated pet products five-star reviews, one writes that during especially cold weather their cat would be “curled up in his warm bed and snoozing away all day long. He’d be so content and happy that my heart swelled for him.” This safety-certified heated pod can also serve as an unheated bed during warmer weather — and is big enough for small dogs.

As of late, Strategist contributor Eric Margulies has fielded lots of questions from friends about what hoodies to buy, and he believes the best ones are “stylish, subtle, and comfortable,” like this dark-blue, logo-free Everlane hoodie made from 100 percent cotton.

Finding an actually-warm winter coat under $300 isn’t always easy, so if you’re in the market, consider this under-$100 parka a sign: It’s available in classic black, filled with polyester and feathers, and currently available in sizes XS to XL.

A four-pack of Pop Art printed socks for little ones (and their artsy parents) from the cool-person-recommended sock brand Happy Socks.

From the brand best known for its fur-lined shoes, comes a pair of (well) under-$50 fur-lined leather gloves that’ll keep your fingers toasty, and would make for a nice Valentine’s Day gift for her.

We found some almost unbelievably discounted soft things for sale at Zara, like this 75 percent off fleece coat with a distinctive lapel collar and tortoiseshell buttons that you could wear to loaf around the house in comfort and style (until we start seeing people again, in which case it would make for a very nice piece of outerwear).

There’s also this pair of under-$10 lilac shorts, because if there was ever a time to buy stretchy-and-soft shorts it is now.

Strategist senior writer — and five-time marathon runner — Karen Iorio Adelson says Saucony’s Kinvara line of road-running shoes are “very lightweight, very bouncy” shoes that are soft, with a “springier feel that’s nice for faster running.”
