We found lots of worthy holiday gift contenders in today’s internet sales-bin sweep. There’s a refurbished KitchenAid stand mixer that “works like new,” a shoulder bag with a ’90s-inspired shape, and a stylist-recommend shampoo for curly hair.

From $21

Today only, Ulta is taking 50 percent off select shampoo and conditioner from Pattern, the curly, coily, and textured hair-care line founded by Tracee Ellis Ross. One hair stylist told us the shampoo is “hydrating” and “really incredible” for just about every curly hair type.

Its conditioner counterpart, which is formulated with moisturizing jojoba, coconut, and olive oil.

Just in case your super decides get stingy with the radiator, have this breathable cotton blanket on hand to layer under your duvet. It’s on sale in beige, light blue, light gray, mint, navy, white, yellow, and the dark gray shown.


This (highly giftable) 23andMe testing kit comes with over 150 personalized genetic reports and screens for health conditions like type 2 diabetes, late-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and lactose intolerance.

Net-a-Porter is offering 25 percent off select styles with code 25OFF, which just so happens to include the low-top Converse Chuck 70 sneakers in this oft-sold-out brown.

We’re particularly charmed by the organically shaped O-ring on this little leather bag from Staud.

There are lots of early Black Friday deals to be had over at Walmart, including this refurbished KitchenAid stand mixer that’s $100 cheaper than the original. (And if you’re skeptical about buying a refurbished model, former Strategist writer Kayla Levy says hers works “good as new.“)

If you’ve got a little one to shop for this holiday season, this adorable turtle lawn mower has a storage compartment under the shell, a plastic fuel can, movable dials, and a pull cord that makes a motor sound.

SSENSE is taking 15 percent off select items with code FW2021 for a limited time. We’d put that coupon code toward this long-sleeved crop top from rarely on-sale brand Gil Rodriguez, which is still in stock in sizes XS to L.

You could also pick up this recycled plastic hair pik from U.K.-based company Re=Comb. It’d make an excellent holiday gift when paired with the above shampoo and conditioner, too.

The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
