We’re still looking for the best gifts that will get to you by Christmas, and the sales bins are no exception. In addition to stocking-stuffer-worthy socks at Nordstrom, we also spotted a double-discounted fleece hoodie from J.Crew and a supersoft Everlane scarf you could gift to your mom — or keep for yourself. Plus, Ulta’s Holiday Beauty Blitz sale has begun, so a selection of beauty and self-care products will be up to 50 percent off on a weekly basis until Christmas Eve.
This slightly cropped fleece sweatshirt is available in six colors, but we’re most intrigued by this bubblegum pink.
A knit pair of socks isn’t the sexiest gift to give, but it will be appreciated.
On-sale styles at J.Crew are an extra 50 percent off with the code SHOPSALE, including this fleece hoodie that’s available in 13 colors.
Strategist junior writer Kitty Guo says this luxe set from Flamingo Estate — made in collaboration with the Dalai Lama, of all people — is at the top of her holiday wishlist. It includes a jar of saffron honey, four artisanal soaps, and a candle. Plus a portion of proceeds will be donated.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
