You’d be wise to get a head start on holiday shopping this year, which is why we made sure to include several highly giftable deals in today’s sale-bin sweep. That would include discounts on an actually stylish compost bin for the eco-conscious parent, a Polaroid camera for the VSCO tween, and a sparkling water maker for La Croix connoisseurs.

Design Within Reach is offering free shipping and up to 15 percent off select dining tables and chairs this week, including these sleek spindle-style dining chairs. They’ve got a “relatively small footprint for a hardwood dining chair, but still feel super-sturdy,” one small-space design expert told us. Plus they match a variety of decorating styles.

If their fridge is always full of La Croix (or San Pellegrino, or Spindrift, or Perrier), help them cut back on cans and bottles with this easy-to-use sparkling-water maker. Strategist editor Maxine Builder says the SodaStream is “reliable” and offers “maximum fizz with minimal effort.”

If you’ve got a little one on your list this year, a child psychologist told us that these magnetic Tegu blocks are “a really good way to promote early STEM and math skills.”

As our friends over at the Strategist U.K. once wrote, the Fujifilm Instax Mini would make for an excellent gift for the tween in your life — “or a godchild who’s grown out of Lego, but isn’t yet into a voucher for Brandy Melville.”
