Memorial Day is still a few weeks away, but the internet’s sale bins are certainly well stocked. Below, you’ll find an under-$20 yoga mat for at-home (or even outdoor) workouts, a rarely on sale duvet cover made from organic cotton, and the gel-infused pillows reviewers say are nothing short of “magical.”

Strategist staffer Kelsie Schrader purchased this New Balance yoga mat earlier this year after spotting it on sale at REI. At ten millimeters thick, it’s “much cushier than my old one,” she says. Plus, “I haven’t had to crawl around on my hands and knees picking up foam flecks every morning.”

Because shield shades are — once again — all the rage.

This sculptural glass vase is designed specifically for growing avocado plants — and would make an excellent gift for someone with or without a green thumb. Just fill it with water, place an avocado pit on top, and let the sunlight do the rest.

In celebration of GOODEE’s third birthday, select best sellers are up to 40 percent off through May 30. That includes a handful of sheet sets, pajamas, and bathrobes from Copenhagen-based Tekla, which hardly ever go on sale. This organic-cotton duvet cover, for example, is now on sale in pale yellow, light gray, and the pink-and-brown stripe shown.

As is the brand’s hooded bathrobe, made from organic cotton and finished in preppy stripes.

Reminiscent of a French market tote, this vegan-leather bag from Matt & Nat is large enough to use for school, work, (or picking up a baguette on the way home).

If you’ve yet to secure your summer suit, this one from Madewell — now 40 percent off, along with a bunch of other in-season styles at Shopbop — offers UPF 50 sun protection and is made using recycled fabrics.

Designed in an effort to reduce single-use plastic, Colgate’s Keep toothbrushes are made from recycled aluminum with detachable heads that can be swapped out as needed. According to the brand, they help reduce the use of plastic by 80 percent when compared to similarly sized Colgate toothbrushes.

These gel-filled fiber pillows have a breathable, cooling cotton cover and happen to be a Strategist best seller — likely because we’ve named them the best-rated pillows you can buy on Amazon. Reviewers call them nothing short of “magical,” noting that they hold their shape and provide support without being too firm. For a limited time, they’re an extra 40 percent off at checkout when you select the on-page coupon.
