With discounts on a lot of nice workout gear in Nordstrom’s sale section as well as a half-off fitness tracker from Amazon and deeply discounted sneakers at Nike, it seems the sales sections have jumped straight to New Year’s resolutions. But I also found a bunch of things that will make great holiday gifts — and most items will still arrive by Christmas (though a few may require expedited shipping).

Everlane is offering free express shipping right now, so if you order these cute diamond-stitch socks today, they’ll arrive in time to make for a nice stocking stuffer.

This would make a nice work bag since it fits most 15-inch laptops and can be carried as either a tote or crossbody.

These pale-blue flare pants are still in stock in sizes extra-extra small through large.

It won’t arrive in time to be a holiday gift, but if you’re already looking ahead to your fitness goals in the New Year, then Amazon’s Halo View tracker is a fairly cheap way to get started. We named an older version as our top choice for tracking everyday activities, so this would be a good bet for someone aiming to add more movement to their day (not necessarily a marathon runner).

Here’s a fun toy for the kid who loves Paw Patrol, complete with a dino-saving vehicle and mystery-dinosaur figurine.

Ban.do is offering 30 percent off sitewide, just in time to get a new planner for the new year. We like this 12-month planner for $14.

Here’s an extra-large scarf for those who want to channel Lenny Kravitz this winter.

Often the best gift to get someone is something a little luxe they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves, and this skin-care set fits the bill. It contains a hydrating mist that dermatologist Dr. Mary Sommerlad says may be “a little frivolous, but it’s just such a joy.” (This will still arrive by Christmas if you choose expedited shipping.)

Here’s something for your winter-morning run: A long-sleeve workout top made from breathable and moisture-wicking fabric to keep you warm without overheating.

The upgraded version of Euphoria actress Chloe Cherry’s favorite shoes are on sale. “They’re really lightweight and have a nice bounce to them,” Cherry says. “I used to do track in school — I’ve been running my whole life — and I’ve noticed shoes are best when they’re lightweight.”
