Today’s micro-sales roundup includes several potential Mother’s Day gifts at a wide range of price points. There’s the “holy grail of shampoos” that rarely goes on sale, a vegan cookbook fit for beginners, and a linen duvet cover ideal for warmer weather.

Ssense is once again offering free shipping and taking 15 percent off select items with code SS2022. You know the drill: time to pick up some rarely on-sale favorites like this cult-favorite Oribe shampoo. It’s formulated with argan oil, plant collagen, and biotin, so one hair-color expert calls it “the holy grail of shampoos” that “rejuvenates the hair cuticle from the inside out.”

If you (or Mom) are a fan of Aesop’s cult-y Resurrection hand wash, this creamy hand balm features the very same mandarin, rosemary, and cedar scent.

Madewell is still taking 30 percent off sale styles with code REFRESH, including this customizable bikini top made from recycled fabric. It’s still in stock in sizes XXS to XXL.

The matching bikini bottoms are now under $25.

Complete the beach-day look with these terry-cloth sweat shorts, which are on sale in a wide range of seasonal colorways.

For those looking to dip their tongs into tofu, reviewers say this vegan cookbook is excellent for beginners. “Most vegan cookbooks require lots of time, ingredients, and skill. I love cooking, but weekdays need something quick and healthy,” one reviewer writes. “This book delivers.”

Aitoh Origami Marbling Kit

If you’ve been thinking about starting a new hobby, suminagashi (or paper marbling) is easy, fun, and kid friendly: You simply drip different inks onto the surface of a pan of water, dip in a piece of paper or fabric, then lay it flat to dry.

Four experts we’ve spoken to recommend this Tom’s of Maine Children’s Toothpaste for kids and babies because it isn’t formulated with artificial colors, sweeteners, or flavorings.

Any mom would be happy to receive a pair of breathable scuff slippers for Mother’s Day (especially if she’s still wearing her pre-pandemic pair).

Finally, this linen duvet cover — on sale in white, pink, and this charcoal gray — is just the right weight for sweaty sleepers. It’s woven in Portugal from European linen and stonewashed for a broken-in feel.
