In today’s rummage through the internet’s sale bins, we found several deals for her, him, and your home — many of which we’ve written about before — to get you through the season’s warmest (and not-so-warm) days, like our favorite electric kettle, a long-sleeve minidress, and a picnic-ready travel mug.

There are still lots of good deals to be had at Backcountry’s end-of-season sale, including this lightweight zip-up from Filson that’ll keep you warm during early-morning dog walks or post-sunset picnics.

After a whole year of working out from home, we wouldn’t blame you if your yoga mat has seen better days. This one from Manduka is biodegradable and truly slip-resistant, and, if it’s anything like our favorite Manduka PROLite model, should last you for years to come.

A movie night with this movie-theater popcorn set — which comes with our go-to six-quart stovetop popcorn popper, five popcorn kits, and four popcorn buckets — will give you the closest thing to an IRL cinematic experience. (And with code: GROW, it’s 20 percent off at checkout.)

A set of spring-cleaning-ready dish towels for just $4 apiece. (And if red doesn’t match your kitchen décor, there are ten other on-sale colors, ranging from chambray to sage.)

Whether you’re brewing finicky teas or making instant ramen, this handsome tea kettle, which we’ve deemed the best (and best-looking) electric kettle, holds water at your temperature of choice for up to an hour, and a built-in stopwatch counts the extraction or steep time.

Contigo makes some of our favorite leak-free water bottles and travel mugs, so we think this insulated stainless-steel mug — which features double-walled vacuum insulation to keep drinks hotter up to 7 hours or colder up to 20 hours — is a foolproof choice for your next hike or afternoon walk.

There are lots of spring-ready gems in Nordstrom’s sale bins, like these subtly patterned sneakers from Cole Haan, still available in sizes (and half-sizes) from 5 to 10.5.

This long-sleeve minidress can be layered over tights for rainy days or paired with sandals once the weather warms up.

Another Strategist-approved pick, here’s the cross-body version of our favorite Madewell tote in a picnic basket-esque woven leather.

Anthropologie is still taking an extra 25 percent off sale items, including this not-too-hot hoodie in the aptly-named color “limoncello.”

And finally, we found lots of Tumi backpacks on sale at East Dane, like this padded, multi-compartment pack to use on your next socially distanced day trip or park jaunt. (And once the office reopens, it would make for a particularly stylish commuter bag.)

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.
