For today’s deep dive into the internet’s sales bins, we found everything you need for a snuggly night in: matching family pajamas, an Animal Crossing–inspired board game, a Bluetooth speaker, and an exfoliating foot peel to slough away dry winter skin.

Skip a trip to the tree farm with one of the artificial trees on sale at Target. Inspired by an Alberta spruce tree, this one is six feet tall and unlit so you can add your own string lights.

If they’ve been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons since it launched in 2020, here’s a nice gift to get everyone excited about family game night.

Over at Madewell, the signature vintage-inspired jeans are 40 percent off with the code OHJOY. Celebrity stylist Samantha Brown says these jeans have the “perfect amount of stretch” and a slim cut through the leg for a streamlined silhouette.

We’ve heard of Black Friday starting early, but J.Crew just dropped a lot of early Cyber Monday deals. Great for layering, these plaid joggers are made of a double-layer fabric that traps heat.

All other full-price items are 40 percent off at J.Crew with the code SHOPEARLY — which makes our favorite turtleneck just $24.

Speaking of cozy knits, flannel shirts are just $75 at Everlane today. This one is 100 percent cotton and comes in eight colors.

When former Strategist senior writer Karen Adelson tested out several self-heating mugs, she declared Ember’s to be the best. It’s also a favorite of Ryan Seacrest, makes a great gift for a coffee snob, and is just $100 right now at Amazon.

Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 3

The updated version of our favorite Bluetooth speaker is 30 percent off. Several Strategist staffers own the earlier model, but the Wonderboom 3 boasts a longer battery life, more durable body, and a special feature to adjust the sound for outdoor environments.

Here’s an insulated and dishwasher-safe travel tumbler to keep drinks cold that fits into the cup holder of your car, treadmill, or exercise bike.

Ulta’s Hello Holidays sale ends tomorrow, and Babyfoot — the miracle foot exfoliator we’ve been raving about since 2016 — is the cheapest we’ve ever seen.

All pajamas are 50 percent off at Hanna Andersson, in case you’d like to get some matching pajamas for the whole family before the holidays begin.

Thanksgiving is next week (!), and all the prep tools you’ll need are up to 50 percent off at Food52. This apron is from its in-house line and features an adjustable neck strap, pot holders at the bottom corners, and a handy measurement conversion chart sewn into a pocket.

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.
