We updated our guide to the best artificial Christmas trees yesterday, which — in a way — was our starting gun to signal that it’s time to start thinking about holiday gifts. (Before you get mad, we’ve been hearing plenty of rumblings about pandemic-induced shipping delays and supply-chain shortages.) With all that in mind, we’ve found lots of highly giftable deals in today’s sweep through the internet’s sale bins. There’s an Yves Saint Laurent fragrance, a stylish dog leash for literal hypebeasts, and two expert-recommended knives for the price of just one.

This knife set from Global — the favorite brand of several chefs we’ve spoken to — comes with a seven-inch chef’s knife and a three-inch paring knife. Each have textured ergonomic handles for comfortable slicing and a nonslip grip.

Refresh their (or your own) underwear drawer with a three-pack of everybody’s favorite Calvin Klein boxer briefs, now 30 percent off.

Zoë Kravitz, the face of YSL’s Black Opium, describes the best-selling scent as similar to her grandmother’s house: a mix of “musk and maple syrup.”

If you (like me) have been wearing the same sweatpants since early quarantine, here’s an excellent deal on a pair of timeless Champion fleece joggers. They have a comfortable drawstring waist, elasticized cuffs, and are still in stock in sizes XS to XXL.

Ssense is still taking 10 percent off nearly sitewide with code SHOP10, and there are lots of worthy holiday-gift contenders. We think any parent who lived through the ’70s would be happy to receive this reviewer-favorite tie-dyed camping chair from Helinox, which one backpacker says packs down in “less than 30 seconds.”

And for the most flex-oriented of dog parents, here’s a woven camo-print dog leash from cult-favorite streetwear brand BAPE.

This Dyson hair dryer is a splurge even at this sale price, but one celebrity stylist told us it’s the “best in its class for speed, weight, and noise” — and you’ll still be saving well over $100.

Speaking of hair care, Saks Fifth Avenue is taking 25 percent off new arrivals and 15 percent off select beauty products, which just so happens to include Olaplex’s No. 3 Hair Perfector. Hairstylists have told us that it “visibly strengthens hair, reduces breakage, and truly improves overall look and feel.”

For something a little richer, Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says this moisturizing deep conditioner from Black-owned brand Briogeo left her hair “smoother and less tangled” after just four days of use.

Coach Ergo Shoulder Bag

And finally, today’s the last day to take 20 percent off select styles at Coach with code SAVENOW. You can’t go wrong with one of the brand’s classic shoulder bags that has a smooth, ergonomic shape, zip-top closure, and handy interior pocket. (Plus, if your order totals $400 or more, that discount will jump up to 25 percent.)

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.
