If you’re the kind of person who’s already stocking up on holiday gifts, there’s plenty to be found in today’s roundup — including a portable speaker for picky teens, a stylish caddy for moms who love a bath, and actually nice-looking slippers for the hard-to-shop-for in-laws. We’ve also got an exclusive sneak peek at Credo’s Friends and Family Sale, so scroll on through to find the best of the best.

Hanna Andersson sales have been near-constant lately, but the brand has added another — and the discount is still very strong. With a sitewide discount of 40 percent, plus an additional 10 percent off with code FRIENDS10, it feels like it’s daring you not to buy its matching pajama sets.

Already-on-sale dresses at Lisa Says Gah are an extra 30 percent off today — liked this striped turtleneck dress that’s now just $42.


Our favorite portable Bluetooth speaker is 25 percent off at both Amazon and Target right now. Clocking in at just over a half-pound, former Strategist writer Jordan Bowman found that the small but mighty JBL Clip produced clear, crisp sound from beach day to bike ride (and it’s also one of our favorite gifts for teenage boys).

The Dyson V7 isn’t the newest or most powerful model, but it has plenty of power to suck up any dirt, dust, dander, or hair — all for just $300.

If you’re the type of person who could bathe for two and a half hours at a time, here’s a handsome metal bath caddy that’ll hold all your essentials.

Some fleece jackets for your feet that are 20 percent off (and for an extra $6, you can monogram the bag, making this an actually thoughtful gift).

If you like the convenience of a diffuser but want something a bit more decorative than a bunch of sticks, here’s one from Anthropologie that looks like a bouquet.

You won’t feel too bad about finishing that homemade pie when you’ve got this colorful pattern shining through underneath.

Credo Beauty’s Friends & Family Sale starts tomorrow, but Strategist readers can get all the discounts one day early. I haven’t seen Osea go on sale for more than 15 percent off, so now would be a good time to nab some of its body scrub, which Credo founder Annie Jackson says “hydrates without feeling oily.”

You can also stock up on the staples, like our most-dentist-recommended dental floss. (It’s also a favorite of both Lauv and Chris Carrabba of Dashboard Confessional.)

Erica Cerulo, co-creator of the A Thing or Two podcast and newsletter, likens this citrusy floral scent to a grown-up version of Gap’s Dream perfume. It “isn’t as heady, it isn’t sugary sweet, either. It’s nuanced … but gently so,” she says.

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.
