Today, we found not-too-basic cold-weather essentials at REI, nice-looking host gifts at Anthropologie, and even a pink metallic cowboy hat for those interested in advancing the yee-haw agenda this Halloween.

We spotted a cache of discounted OXO storage containers over at the Container Store. This three-piece set is a nice option for those who want to organize their coffee or tea supplies, but there are lots of other sizes and configurations available for just about any space.

Ring Video Doorbell

Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale starts next Tuesday, but we’ve been keeping a close eye on the early deals — including this video doorbell from Ring. It’s not as advanced as some of its other offerings, but it is the cheapest we’ve seen and can still be paired with Alexa-enabled devices.

REI has some great finds in its clearance section this week, including this Patagonia dopp kit that’s made of the same durable, waterproof fabric as the cult-y Black Hole duffels.

If the cold snap took you by surprise, here’s a nice insulated hoodie that’s warm without being too bulky.

Some fleece jackets for your feet (that would make an excellent holiday gift for the outdoorsy man in your life).

And finally, a chunky fisherman-style sweater that no one will ever guess you got at REI.

Here are some delicate cocktail napkins with hand-embroidered oysters that would be a nice hostess gift later this holiday season.

Or, if you’re looking for a sculptural alternative to scented candles, here’s a charming wax bust that’s nearly ten inches tall.

This $99 set is complete with everything you need to set the table this Thanksgiving: a platter, gravy boat, spoon, and spoon rest.

This holographic cowboy hat is a high-fun accessory for a low-stakes Halloween costume (and fits both adults and kids).
