Christmas is in three days, so if you haven’t already sent gifts to those on your list, you’d better get to it. To help, we’ve rounded up the best gifts for all kinds of recipients — including teenage boysmoms, and babies — though you may need to pay for expedited shipping if you want them to arrive in time. (You can always give them a virtual gift or gift card). If your recipient doesn’t mind receiving their present a few days after the holidays, we found plenty of worthy gifts for them (or for you) on sale today, like a stylist-approved blow-dry brush, a sculptural shoulder bag, and a Y2K-friendly twist on a classic digital watch.

Low rise is a fad, high rise is forever. These are Everlane’s highest rise yet, but with the full-on mom jean cut and wash.

These kicks would be a welcome upgrade for the Keds devotee who doesn’t know any better.

This tee is made from a sweat-wicking fabric that’ll feel great as you’re running miles (or errands).

Revlon’s hot brush is a favorite of Amazon reviewers and TikTokers, but it has also been recommended to us by professional hair stylists. Stylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew says it is great for “achieving a smooth, no-frizz, polished look — especially for those with thick and curly hair types.”

From $28

Natori’s barely there bras have routinely been praised by stylish women we’ve talked to over the years. This bra offers the contour coverage the brand is known for and features a pretty jacquard pattern.

For plant parents new and old, an easy-to-care-for anthurium will add a little color to all the greenery.

If you’re one with the outdoors, a portable hammock is a necessity. This is the best-rated hammock on Amazon, perfect for star-gazing or listening to campfire stories.

This classic piped pajama set is a great catch-all present for the tricky giftee on your list. After all, everyone has to sleep eventually.

Mansur Gavriel’s lether goods very rarely go on sale, which makes this a great oppurtunity to snag this handsome wallet. It’s perfect for the person whose credit cards are falling out of their decade-old case.

And as a reward for checking off your Christmas list: a Staud-esque sculptural shoulder bag.

Wake up, watch converts: There’s a classic Casio on sale for less than $30. We’re particularly partial to this glittery sky-blue version, too.

Prep meets athleisure — a sweatshirt that’ll look equally great over ratty basketball shorts or a nice wide-legged pair of jeans.
