Today’s micro-sales round-up is a grab bag of deals to help you make the most of the new season. There’s a Strategist-tested indoor garden impervious to finicky weather, a dermatologist-recommended sunscreen that doesn’t cause breakouts, and a pair of leather sandals that reviewers describe as “cushiony” and comfortable.

With the help of an efficient LED grow light, this (very giftable) indoor garden from AeroGarden will allow Mom to grow fresh herbs in even the darkest of New York City apartments.

These vertical food-storage containers are waterproof, BPA free, and designed to help save space in your car, tote bag, or day pack. The lids are twist-off and interchangeable, so you can bring along as few or as many as you like. Today only, they’re over half off at REI.

Anthropologie just added lots of new styles to its sale section, including this $40 side-button top. It’s (miraculously) still in stock in petite, standard, and plus sizes ranging from XXS to 3X.

You can use this stainless-steel bowl and oakwood tray separately or together as pictured, making this three-in-one serving dish an even better deal.

This generously sized ceramic vase would make the perfect vessel for a springtime bouquet.

When we tested West Elm’s linen sheets, we described them as the perfect “dip-your-toe-in linen” — softer than percale cotton but still cleaner and crisper than other options available. Made from the same European flax, this duvet cover in Natural Stripe is now 20 percent off for a limited time.

Skinstore is taking 20 percent off at checkout on all EltaMD products for a limited time, including the brand’s dermatologist-favorite (and rarely on-sale) UV Clear sunscreen. Note that orders over $49 ship for free, so you may as well stock up.

Everlane’s Spring Sale is now live with discounts as much as 60 percent off on last season’s styles. We think this organic-cotton cardigan — which can be worn on its own or layered over a T-shirt — would make a welcome Mother’s Day gift.

Made from entirely recycled materials, these joggers are stretchy, soft, and breathable — everything loungewear should be.

Madewell is taking 30 percent off sale styles with code REFRESH, these leather ankle-strap sandals included. According to one reviewer, they’re “so cushiony and soft” and have the “perfect amount of coverage” while still being breathable.

This mini leather crossbody has an adjustable strap, two slide pockets in front for your phone and ID, and a zippered compartment for your wallet and keys.

Lastly, Strategist-favorite Naadam is offering 20 percent off select styles as part of its Mother’s Day sale with code SUNSHINE. This seasonally appropriate cashmere tank will keep you warm (but not too warm) on breezy days.

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.
