In today’s end-of-week sweep of the online sales bins, we found lots of things to keep you cool both indoors and out this summer — many of which, we might add, would make excellent Father’s Day gifts. That includes a pair of cotton twill joggers, a portable picnic cooler, and even a Strategist-approved sunscreen set. (If you want even more deals sent straight to your inbox, sign up for our email newsletter.)

Rains Base Backpack

To start, here’s a great deal on a waterproof commuter pack from Rains to keep your valuables safe from surprise summer showers.


We also spotted these funky, Ross Geller–approved dinosaur crew socks in our sweep of East Dane’s current sales.


And here’s a vintage-inspired bookshelf edition of the classic Monopoly game for the dad (or grandpa) who’s serious about family game night.

Anthropologie is currently taking an extra 25 percent off lots of in-season styles, including this mini shift dress in a surprisingly-neutral tie-dye stripe.

27 Edit Candice Mule

This weekend is also your last chance to shop the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale. You can find all of our can’t-miss picks here, but we’re particularly fond of these espadrille-style suede mules (which we’d pair with the tunic dress above).

This pampas grass bouquet will compliment (and outlast) just about any summer flower arrangement.

The green pigment in this Strategist reader-approved lipstick reacts to the warmth of your lips, turning them a subtle, your-lips-but-better pink.

This enameled cast iron braiser from Staub that’s oven-safe — and doesn’t require any seasoning — would make a great gift for the dad who cooks.

Poketo Concept Planner

Here’s a very good deal on a fresh new planner to keep all of your post-vaccine vacations organized.


And to wear on said vacations, a pair of high-waisted wide leg pants made from a breezy linen blend.


The Outnet is offering up to 85 percent discounts on select end-of-season styles, meaning you can snag these suede Mansur Gavriel ankle boots — which are still in stock in most sizes — for under $100.

We also found an excellent deal on this lightweight belted midi dress that would be perfect for summer picnics, weddings, and everything in between.

This travel mug features double-wall vacuum insulation to keep hot drinks hot for up to nine hours, and cold drinks cold for almost two days.

A step up from sweatpants, these cotton cargo-joggers (jargos? coggers?) from Macy’s feature a drawstring waistband and elastic cuffs for a comfortable fit.
