Today’s sweep through the internet’s sale bins unearthed lots of excellent discounts for him, her, and the home. There’s a spring-y gingham tote just made for the farmers’ market, some breathable cotton pants that’ll be even cooler than khakis, and a rarely on sale cutting board that also gives back. (And if you’d like to get a head start on Mother’s Day shopping, we found a few fitting gifts for mom, too.)

$30 for 12

For those trying to cut back on soda, this low-sugar alternative contains natural prebiotics from apple-cider vinegar. For a limited time, the Fun Favorites variety pack is 20 percent off with on-page coupon.


Native’s natural deodorants exclude aluminum, talc, and paraben — and are known for converting even the most skeptical antiperspirant evangelists. (Testers tell us the formula, in addition to going on smoothly, genuinely keeps pits dry.) For a limited time, this fresh unisex scent is 20 percent off at checkout.

This under-$30 serving bowl is made from durable rubberwood that’ll stand up to years of wear and tear and will double as décor when not in use.

We mentioned these cutting boards in our roundup of products specifically giving back to the AAPI community and think they would make a particularly good Easter or Mother’s Day present, too. The three-pack is already available at a discount, but as part of the brand’s birthday sale, they’re an extra 20 percent off with code HERESTOYOU …

… As is the brand’s whisk, which Strategist writer Chloe Anello says creates “fluffier-than-ever omelets, perfectly smooth stracciatella alla romana, and unbelievably consistent red sauce” thanks to its looped hybrid design. (She likes hers so much, in fact, that she replaced all of her whisks with this one.)

Multiple Strategist editors rely on Patagonia’s cult waterproof, lifetime-guaranteed Black Hole duffel bag for their travels, and this backpack is made from the same weather-resistant material. It has a two-way zip-around closure, an exterior pocket, and a padded sleeve that fits most 15-inch laptops.

At five feet long and three feet wide, this woven cotton rug from socially and environmentally conscious brand Goodee is just the right size for a smaller living room or wide entryway.

If your down duvet is already starting to feel too warm this spring, try this breathable (and machine-washable) cotton quilt from Nordstrom. It’s on sale in gray, pink, and ivory, and was a Strategist-reader favorite during the retailer’s Anniversary Sale last year.

Urban Outfitters is taking an extra 40 percent off select sale items, including these slightly cropped cotton pants. They have a drawstring waistband for an extra comfortable fit, and are still in stock in black, teal, and the tan shown.

Large enough to hold an iPad, Hydroflask, or even a set of gym gear, this little gingham tote is the “perfect everyday bag,” according to one reviewer. It also has a button closure to keep your belongings secure.

Finally, today’s the last day to take 50 percent off select plants and bundles at the Sill’s Annual Sidewalk Sale. This apartment-friendly fiddle-leaf fig is particularly easy to care for, requiring only bright indirect light and watering once per week.

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.
