Given that we’re just ten days away from Christmas — well into the season of gift-giving — we’ve devoted most of today’s sales roundup to all the best on-sale presents that will arrive by Christmas. There’s a top-rated espresso machine for barista-level lattes at home, our favorite reusable bags for stashing snacks, and a skin-soothing face mask that “stops pimples in their tracks.”

This fitness expert–approved neoprene gym bag features a handy laptop sleeve, a water-bottle pocket, and a mesh pouch for other essentials.

Reformation just added lots of new styles to its 50 percent off sale section, including this alpaca-wool sweater. It has a dropped shoulder and oversize fit for easy layering.

And this holiday party–ready side-slit midi dress, which can be dressed up or down depending on your footwear.

It may be the placebo effect, but several reviewers say these “delicious” stress-relieving supplements from Olly calm their anxiety in as little as 15 minutes.

Today only, Amazon is taking 30 percent off our favorite reusable bags for storing leftovers and stashing snacks.

robot vacuum — very much like this Roomba model — once saved Strategist writer Liza Corsillo’s relationship. It works on both carpets and hard floors and can connect to your phone or voice assistant.

Unfortunately, your child will not be soldering iron and stained glass together at 700 degrees Fahrenheit with this DIY craft kit. But after they peel and press the included translucent stickers onto the grooved frame, it’ll look like they did.

According to Strategist beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton, this soothing face mask from Golde “stops pimples in their tracks” and leaves “a beautiful, healthy glow to your skin.” Now through the end of December, it’s 20 percent off exclusively for Strategist readers with code STRAT20.

Dip your well-ventilated toes into animal print with some (surprisingly neutral) zebra Crocs.

If your New Year’s resolution is to spend less on takeaway coffee, this top-rated machine can brew both drip coffee and espresso and features an easy-to-use steam wand.

To be gifted under the mistletoad.
