The state of sales is particularly great (and great-looking) this Tuesday morning. From some of our favorite backpacks, make-up removers, shampoos, and water bottles to a beautiful French press and some adorable baby clothes, there’s truly something for everyone looking for a little retail therapy this week.

To start things off, Fjällräven’s classic backpack — the best thing our senior writer Lauren Ro bought in an entire decade — is $20 off, right in time for your return to the office.

If you are going to be commuting again (or have already started), you might still be hoping to keep your $5 morning-coffee habit a thing of the past. This beautiful glass French press, now almost 25 percent off, should help.

The “reusable” thing about this notebook is not that you can refill it with new pages. Instead, once you’ve completed your lists, its pages can actually be fully wiped clean with any damp cloth. (Rocketbook kindly includes the ideal type of cloth, as well as a Frixion pen that can be erased even on normal paper, with every purchase.)

Chronic mosquito victim (and Great Jones co-founder) Sierra Tishgart grips this “completely odor-free” repeller in her hand whenever she feels at risk, and waves it around “like it’s a magic wand” so that she can enjoy stress-free outdoor dinners and campfires.

Also at Amazon, we spotted a more than 50 percent discount on this set of 22 scented markers, ranging in smells from apple to root beer.

Novelist (and father of two children) Rumaan Alam loves that Snap Circuits makes a “whole slew of toys to appeal to STEM true believers.” This particular set is designed for kids ages 8 and up, and contains enough bricks to create an endless range of electrified structures.

If your little ones are a little younger, there are some now-very-cheap Hanna Andersson onesies available. While we’re showing the heavily discounted, 3-to-6-month model above, there are discounts of up to 70 percent off to be found depending on which specific age range and colorway you choose.

“You can take all my baby gear,” mother Juliet Lapidos writes, “but you can’t take my DockATot.” Describing it as the product she used the most when taking care of her baby, Lapidos explained that this “baby-docking station … a small mattress with side cushions about five inches high,” helped her child fall asleep faster (and for far longer) than anywhere else in her home.

And here’s 50 percent off a leakproof (and sleek) CamelBak water bottle, with a satisfying-to-close magnetic top.

SachaJuan Scalp Shampoo

Dermstore’s Anniversary Sale is still going on, and this nourishing scalp shampoo — included in our expert-driven guide to the very best shampoos — is one of our readers’ favorites so far (but you can shop all of our picks here).

Unsurprisingly, our savvy readers are also taking advantage of this discount on Bioderma’s Sensibio H20, one of our favorite make-up removers. “Not only does it take all of my makeup off,” our beauty columnist Rio Viera-Newton says, “it actually does a great job of soothing my skin, especially after a night out.”

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.
