Singles’ Day (11/11) — a Black Friday pregame of sorts — is almost upon us, and we’ve already spotted lots of Strategist favorites on sale. There’s a drain-protecting doohickey that’s saved one writer “thousands” in plumbing fees, some under-$100 cashmere that’d make an excellent holiday gift, and a top-rated pillow that’s ideal for side sleepers.

Drain mushrooms are one of our favorite doohickeys for keeping pipes clear of hair and debris (and for preventing plumbing fees). This one fits inside any standard bathtub drain and neatly collects and conceals hair to prevent clogs.

According to thousands (upon thousands) of reviewers, this gel memory-foam pillow is the very best for side sleepers. One calls it “firm, supportive, and not too lofty,” adding, “my neck has never been happier.”

Naadam — the maker of some of our favorite cashmere sweaters — is taking 30 percent off sitewide with code FORYOU as part of its Singles’ Day sale. That includes this now-under-$100 cashmere crewneck reviewers say has the perfect cropped boxy fit.

You could also put that coupon toward one of the brand’s highly giftable cashmere beanies. (And if this peacock blue isn’t your thing, it’s available in seven other colors.)

Another Singles’ Day sale: Brooklinen is taking 15 percent off sitewide through tomorrow. When former Strategist senior writer Lauren Levy tested out the brand’s Linen Duvet Cover, she found that unlike most linen sheets she’d slept on, Brooklinen’s have “an immediately worn-in feel that only gets softer over time and with each wash.”

Brooklinen’s Classic Core Sheets are also a longtime Strategist favorite. “It is really hard to beat the quality of these sheets for the price,” says one interior designer we spoke to. “They feel like butter, and still look and feel great after many times in the wash.”

Adidas EQT Crewneck

Adidas is also taking 25 percent off almost everything on its site for Singles’ Day with code BIGDEAL. We particularly like this high-collar fleece crewneck that the brand found in its 1990s archive and recently brought back.

This is technically an Adidas x Karlie Kloss bikini top, but it’s made from the same fabric (and offers the same support) as a low-impact sports bra.

As we wrote in our roundup of Nordstrom’s best (early) Black Friday deals: “If they already wear Adidas Sambas, they’re sure to like these retro-inspired sneakers from Japanese brand Onitsuka Tiger.”

Lastly, select Our Place cookware is also on sale through November 29 — both at Nordstrom and on the brand’s website. This eight-inch chef’s knife would make a thoughtful gift for professional chefs and home cooks alike.

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.
