If you’re in need of a midweek pick-me-up, we found plenty of excellent new deals to get you excited for brighter days. That includes a pair of breezy linen-blend trousers you’ll live in from June to September, a dentist-recommended whitening treatment that actually works, and a bike alternative beloved by toddlers and teens alike.

Today only, Madewell Insiders will receive 20 percent off their purchase, along with free overnight shipping. (Membership is free and just requires an email address.) We’d put that discount toward this Supima cotton tee, which reviewers say is the “perfect” length and weight for everyday wear.

We also have our eye on these wide-leg pants made from a linen-cotton blend — a more comfortable denim alternative now that the weather’s warming up.

This reader-favorite, marker-size filtering straw from LifeStraw will remove 99 percent of bacteria and parasites from any water you put it in, making it an especially smart gift for avid hikers and campers (yourself included).

When we spoke to dentists about their favorite at-home teeth-whitening treatments, Crest Whitestrips came out as the top recommendation. Along with 32 treatment strips that gradually whiten teeth over time, the box also includes two one-hour express treatments that deliver same-day results. Today only, it’s $8 off with the on-page coupon at checkout.

In case you missed it, Adidas is taking up to 50 percent off end-of-season styles while supplies last. Stock is a touch limited, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the brand’s rarely on-sale Samba style (this edition is made with vegan alternatives to animal-derived materials) at a sizable discount.

Bring this rip-resistant waist pack on all of your bike rides, hikes, and climbs. (It’ll easily fit the LifeStraw above, too.)

This no-maintenance-required faux lemon tree will brighten up just about any counter, tabletop, or breakfast nook. One reviewer liked theirs so much, they “bought another one for my daughter’s kitchen too.”

If you aren’t headed back to the office anytime soon, it may be time to forfeit the dining table for a more fitting work station. We think $113 is a small price to pay for a three-drawer desk made from rubber wood, birch veneer, and natural rattan.

Finally, style this timeless Calvin Klein belt with a T-shirt and jeans, or cinched over a dress for some extra shape.

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.
