Today’s rummage through the internet’s sale bins has upturned lots of holiday-gift contenders. There’s a four-piece bakeware set for the home chef, the gold standard of men’s denim for your brother or boyfriend, and some drag-queen-approved eyeliner that stays on all day that would make an excellent stocking stuffer. Plus, if you’re already looking forward to New Year’s, we found lots of party-ready pieces on sale too.

Buzz Bissinger told us this oil-infused cleansing balm “builds into a nice lather” and leaves his skin feeling “both clean and invigorated” afterward.

When we asked RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Shangela Laquifa Wadley what she can’t live without, she mentioned this eyeliner from Lady Gaga’s Haus Laboratories. The brush is thin enough for precise linework, while the black is deep and pigmented enough to stay on all day.

If they’re always complaining about doing the dishes, these nonstick ceramic pans from GreenPan will make cleanup much quicker.


At $60 for the set, each dish works out to just $15 — a very rare price for Staub bakeware.

If you’re in need of a dress for a holiday (or New Year’s Eve) party, Reformation just discounted lots of in-season styles, including this cutout body-con dress that’s also on sale in cherry red.

With the addition of tights and a cardigan when needed, this two-piece can be worn year-round.

According to one denim expert (and lots of stylish men we’ve spoken to), Levi’s classic straight-fit 501s are the gold standard of men’s jeans. For a limited time, they’re 30 percent off at Levi’s with the code LAST30.

If neither of the Reformation pieces above caught your eye, you can also take an extra 40 percent off holiday-ready dresses at Anthropologie. We’d wear this silk slip dress with a black mesh turtleneck and heels.

One reviewer (who wears sizes eight to ten and ordered a size small) says this two-piece set “is so lovely on and fits like a glove.”

This highly gift-able felt bolster pillow would look especially nice on a bed or a love seat and is also on sale in a classic square shape.

Finally, here’s an excellent deal on a stylish (and portable) folding firepit for more comfortable socially distanced get-togethers this winter.
