In today’s deep dive into the internet’s sales bins, we found comfy sweatpants and an under-$100 cashmere sweater as well as a nice-smelling candle and charming kettle. If you want to take your coziness one step further and enter into the holiday spirit, we also found some (already) discounted décor.

Since the launch of its Holiday Deals event last week, Nordstrom has been steadily adding a slew of nice things to its sale section, including these straight-leg, French-terry sweatpants from Alo Yoga that are 30 percent off.

For something a bit more polished, this cashmere sweater is just $90 and comes in 17 colors.

The Luna Mini 2 is one of our favorite facial cleaning brushes, and its compact size makes it especially good for travel (that and the fact that it can be used up to 300 times on a single charge).

Shopbop added a lot of new items to its sale section this morning, and I was especially moved by the deals in the home section, like this candle from the maker of my favorite perfume, Maison Louis Marie.

For long-distance video calls this holiday season, Meta’s Portal is 50 percent off at Target. It’s compatible with Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and Zoom, which means you can use it to call friends and family who don’t have a Portal.

Some holiday décor from Target’s in-house brand Wondershop is 20 percent off, like this adorable corgi wearing a scarf. It’s meant to be placed on your doorstep, but it’s cute enough to keep in your living room.

If you’re looking for an alternative to basic while shopping for Christmas lights this year, these multicolor LED Twinkly ones are 40 percent off today. With the use of an app, you can download lighting effects to customize your display or draw your own.

One of our all-time-favorite workbags for women (that’s also just a very good tote bag) is an extra 30 percent off in this black-and-brown combo when you use the code SALEONSALE.

The “curvy” cut of these jeans is designed with hourglass shapes in mind: There’s a narrower waist, longer rise, and a bit of extra room at the hips and thighs. Plus they’re just $56 with the code SALEONSALE.

As someone who refuses to tan, I use a combo of this and Jergens moisturizer to pretend that my skin isn’t as pale as it is. It dries quickly, hasn’t stained any of my towels, and doesn’t really have that overpowering self-tanner scent.

Keep a steady tea supply on hand during cold-and-flu season with this 4.2-quart kettle that looks good on your stove, too.
