We found plenty of thoughtful holiday gifts in today’s sales bin sweep, several of which we’ve written about before. There’s a top-rated memory-foam pillow for side sleepers, a rare discount on our favorite designy vibrator, and a minimalist teapot for an avid tea drinker. (And if you need even more gifting inspiration, you can find our gift guides here.)
I bought these Sam Edelman boots last week during Nordstrom’s Black Friday event. They’re comfortable, waterproof, offer a touch of extra room at the toes for thick socks, and, somehow, are still on sale.
The most Instagrammable Scrabble board we’ve ever seen.
We’d layer this holiday-party-ready slip dress over a black turtleneck and tights.
While REI’s outwear can often look a bit too … sensible, this insulated jacket from Icebreaker has a stylish standing collar and slightly cropped fit.
Complete the set with a matching teacup, which comes with a bamboo coaster.
Lastly, this towel set from Copenhagen-based textile brand Tekla would make a thoughtful gift for a more design-forward friend. The matching robe is on sale, too.
