We found lots of worthy holiday gift contenders — several of which we’ve written about before — in today’s internet sales-bin sweep. There’s a soothing vitamin C serum for brighter skin, a cozy cotton bathrobe for chilly mornings, and a geometric art print that’s exceptionally easy to hang.

Soko Glam is taking 30 percent off almost everything on its site throughout the month with code SGWONDERLAND30. The sale includes our readers’ favorite hydrating Annatto Hair Oil from British M — a worthy splurge even at full price — that Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says is the “most lightweight, smoothing oil” she’s ever used.

Rio says this serum brightens skin and corrects hyperpigmentation with ingredients like smoothing niacinamide, soothing mushroom extract, and 10 percent pure vitamin C. It’s also easy to apply under makeup and vegan and cruelty-free.

Macy’s early Black Friday deals have dropped across all categories, including this hotel-level bathrobe in a breathable waffled cotton. It’d make a thoughtful gift for the parent or partner in much need of a spa day.

Reviewers call this classic Champion crewneck “super comfortable” and “amazingly warm,” which makes it perfect for layering under jackets. Plus, it’s on sale in 12 other colors, too.

Once burned through, you (or a loved one) can use this Paddywax candle’s leftover jar for organizing matches, makeup brushes, and much more.

Ribbed rayon and extra-long sleeves keep the sweetheart neckline on this sweater from looking overly sweet.


If you’re only allowed to use pushpins and thumbtacks on your apartment walls, this geometric wall hanging is printed on exceptionally lightweight, easy-to-hang cotton canvas.

Lexon Mina Medium LED Light

I own the mini version of this dimmable LED light from Lexon, and it’s surprisingly bright for its size. This model has both warm and cool light settings (including seven color options) and boasts a 24-hour battery life.

We spotted discounts on lots of OPI nail polishes among Ulta’s early Black Friday sales. While you can’t go wrong with any of the brand’s colors, we particularly like this holiday-party-ready red.

And finally, here’s a sizable discount on a 16-piece dinnerware set from Stone Lain, one of our favorite brands for cheap-but-expensive-looking stoneware.

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.
