Should the post-holiday blues be setting in, we found lots of little pick-me-ups in today’s sweep of the internet’s sale bins. There’s my own cat’s favorite bed cave, a teen-favorite blanket for chillier weather ahead, and some sustainably made statement earrings to brighten any outfit.

This heart-shaped BeautyBlender set would make an excellent Valentine’s Day gift for a mom, girlfriend, or even sister (especially when given with the below chocolate).

As would this cozy camo Barefoot Dreams blanket — a favorite among several cool teens and celebrities we’ve spoken to.

While it may still seem like a bit of a splurge to buy this paleo-friendly Hu chocolate in bulk, it’s actually an excellent deal. While one bar will set you back as much as $8 at your nearest bodega, this eight-pack works out to just $3.75 per bar.

Select items from Zella are still 20 percent off at Nordstrom, including this half-zip fleece pullover. “Jason and the Argonauts would have done better to order it from Nordstrom’s instead of going on their quest for the Golden Fleece,” writes a five-star reviewer.

This top-rated cat cave is made from 100 percent merino wool, which is toasty-warm in the winter yet extra-breathable in the summer. (My own cat is a big fan year-round.)

I’ve been using this vegan protein powder for years. It’s an excellent, not-too-chalky addition to smoothies, oatmeal, and even baked goods, and it tastes better than most protein powders I’ve tried. I personally switch off between the chocolate and vanilla flavors.

Today’s the last day to take an extra 15 percent off select sale items at the MoMA Design Store (with code WINTER15). That includes this handmade vase designed by Berlin-based cult florist Marsano, which can double as a sculpture when empty.

Also an extra 15 percent off at MoMA, these sustainably made hoop earrings are crafted from 100 percent recycled plastics sourced from the Danish coastline and household waste, and they’re handcrafted locally in Denmark.
