Today’s sales roundup is a mix of deals to be enjoyed both indoors and out, like a lightweight cycling helmet, a silk-pillowcase sleep set, and a spring-ready wrap dress. (And if you’d like to get ahead on Mother’s Day shopping, there are lots of gift-worthy picks for Mom, too.)

If a year spent indoors has made spring cleaning feel particularly daunting, try these stackable wire baskets, which can hold everything from pantry essentials to bath towels and make it look nice, too.

If you (or Mom) are in need of a new hobby, painter Ashley Longshore tipped us off to Arteza’s watercolor paper, which is the “perfect medium between too smooth and too rough.” We’re certain this travel watercolor set, which comes with 36 colors and a water-brush pen, will also live up to the hype.

Upgrade your home office with this surge-protecting power strip from Anker — the maker some of our favorite portable chargers and durable lightning cables — which features six outlets and three USB charging ports.

Here’s a skin-soothing, frizz-reducing silk pillowcase-and-eye-mask set from Nordstrom’s reliably good sales section (that’d make an excellent gift for the mom with expensive taste).

This portable, pig-shaped Bluetooth speaker is sure to make Mom squeal with delight.

Anthropologie is taking an extra 50 percent off already-on-sale items, bringing this breezy plaid blouse down to a mere $40.

Also, this cozy cotton-blend romper, still available in sizes XS to XL.

A set of three lacy bikini briefs for the price of just one.

This folding laundry basket is stylish enough to leave out in the nursery or laundry room, and the canvas lining can be removed for easy cleaning.

A zebra-printed Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress spotted out in the wild (a.k.a the Outnet’s sale bins).

And finally, here’s a lightweight cycling helmet for comfortable warm-weather riding.
