Whether you’re finishing up your holiday shopping or are just getting started, we found lots of highly giftable deals — many of which we’ve written about before — in today’s sale-bin sweep. There’s a rarely-on-sale puffer jacket for a picky teen or tween, a sizable discount on the “Swiss Army knife” of hair tools, and an under-$15 lip stain that “looks good on absolutely everyone.”

Today only, you can take (a very rare) 20 percent off your purchase at Urban Outfitters. While exclusions apply, we were surprised to find the discount works for this North Face 1996 Nuptse Puffer, a Strategist-writer favorite that hardly ever goes on sale.

They’re not Carhartt, but they are available in six different colorways and most sizes (and are now under $60).

These Baggu packing cubes would make a berry thoughtful gift for a frequent traveler.

Whether you’re camping or just want to keep your coffee hot at your desk, this (over 50 percent off) industrial-chic Stanley mug is a timeless option.

While it’s still a splurge even on sale, you can currently take an extra $70 off this refurbished Dyson Airwrap — the “Swiss Army knife” of hair tools — at Nordstrom Rack (new models retail for as much as $550).

Currently on sale for toddlers, babies, and “big kids” (which includes many adult sizes), these Salt Water sandals are the same ones New York editor Katy Schneider has worn every summer since college. “They’re flat but comfortable,” she says, and hold up “almost unbelievably well” with daily wear.

Some onesie pajamas for monkeying around in this winter.

In case you missed it, Sephora is currently offering Beauty Insiders 20 percent off their purchases with code GIFTEASY. If you aren’t sure where to start, Laura Mercier’s SPF-infused tinted moisturizer is a longtime favorite among Strategist writers, celebrities, and makeup artists alike for its natural-looking coverage and hydrating formula. (It ships free with stackable code FREESHIP.)

Sephora Collection products are 30 percent off for Beauty Insiders with code GIFTEASY. Strategist writer Tembe Denton Hurst likes this Always Red shade of liquid lipstick, writing that it offers “an opaque true red” that “looks good on absolutely everyone.”

Select Wild One dog gear is 25 percent off at Nordstrom, including the brand’s dog harness. Strategist writer Chloe Anello appreciates that it has three different rings to hook your leash to, making it easier to adjust for different levels of pulling (and to loop through the leash hole in a dog coat).

Finally, these vegan Vince Camuto mules are available in four different ’70s-inspired fabrications: black shearling, cream shearling, olive suede, and the camel suede shown.

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.
