Today’s sweep of the internet’s sales bins uncovered discounts on a unique combo yoga mat, a plush, absorbent towel set, and some wild leopard-print slip-ons. (Plus plenty of gear that’ll make it in time for Mother’s Day this weekend.)

Take a walk on the wild side.

A respectable consolation price for anyone that missed the frustratingly small window to see the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

One ashtray for you, one for each of your three best pals.

West Elm Cash Office Chair
From $280

At this point, if you’re buying a chair for your home office, it had better look good enough that you won’t hate having it around once you start commuting again. The West Elm Cash chair takes the cake.

The ribbed construction gives these towels both incredible absorbency and a spa-like texture.

Time to stop leaving that roll of TP on the back of your toilet.

This mat features a unique two-layered design. The bulk of its support comes from a layer of tree rubber, while a layer of absorbent microfiber adds a little bit of cushion. Especially great for sweaty beginners (no shame!), this’ll help make sure you don’t slip around too much as you attempt your first tree pose.

If you had … one shot … one opportunity … to seize a stylish pair of rain boots that will last you the better part of a decade at an extreme discount … would you capture it … or just let it slip by?

Cheers to your second vaccine appointment!
