Not to pressure you, but Easter and Mother’s Day will be here before you know it. Luckily, we’ve uncovered plenty of deals today that would make the perfect present for either occasion: from a classic wooden truck set to a floral candle every mom on your list will appreciate. If your mind is already in summer, we found a pair of men’s chinos that will make you feel like you’re munching on olives at a seaside trattoria, too.

We found this set of Strategist-approved Stasher bags for 20 percent off at Amazon. They made our list of the very best food-storage containers, and contributor Alison Freer, who owns them in “every size, shape, and fun color they make,” says she reaches for them “above all other food-storage options I have in my kitchen.”

Easter is officially less than two weeks away. If you’re still scrambling to put together a basket for your kiddos, this set of Calico Critters’ bunnies made our list of the best Easter basket ideas. Leigh Plessner, the co–creative director of jewelry brand Catbird, told us that playing house with this adorable menagerie helped her bond with her 3-year-old.

We also included this Melissa & Doug wooden car set for kids with a need for speed. It’s 25 percent off on the Melissa & Doug website with the code EASTERMAR22, but hurry — this deal expires at midnight ET.

There’s lots of stuff on sale at Nordstrom right now that would make great Mother’s Day gifts, including this durable canvas apron designed with five roomy pockets.

Or, if Mom is constantly complaining about feeling cold, gift her this plush, cozy Barefoot Dreams blanket that’s VSCO girl–approved. One calls it an “amazing, soft, cuddly throw.”

Otherland’s luxurious candles will add a breath of fresh air to your home. Whether you’re a lily lover or a daffodil head, there’s a fragrance for every floral fanatic. This Garden Party candle features notes of lavender and jasmine.

This handsome planter was one of our picks for the Strategist Shop at West Elm. We love its good-looking, frost-resistant composite, which resembles concrete but is lightweight enough to transport between your home and your garden.

If your summer vibe is “Italian grandpa sipping cappuccinos on the Amalfi Coast,” these J.Crew chinos in a cotton-linen blend are giving easy-breezy sprezzatura.

Sephora opened up its Spring Sale to entry-level Beauty Insider members Thursday. If that’s you, now’s your chance to snag 10 percent off skin-care staples, like this Drunk Elephant serum that we dubbed one of the best vitamin-C serums, with code SAVESPRING.

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.
