This week is the week to ensure that the holiday gifts you order online will arrive in time for Christmas, and I’ve been rooting around the internet’s sales bins to offer some on-sale suggestions for the procrastinators among us. I found a lot of great deals for the outdoors-inclined today: REI and Outdoor Voices are both having big sales, and you should check out Huckberry’s sale section for gifts that expand into the home-décor space, too.

It would be rude to show up at Grandma’s without your baby in this fleece pullover that has dachshund appliqués on front.

However, if you’d like to nab this faux-shearling-lined sweater instead, we wouldn’t be opposed — just look at the pom-pom on the hood.

Cuddle up under this faux-fur throw while you rewatch The White Lotus over break.

REI’s massive Holiday Warm-Up sale lasts until December 19, and we were excited to find a cache of discounted Patagonia puffers and pullovers. Strategist writer Arielle Avila owns a parka in the brand’s signature Nano Puff material and says the insulation is incredibly warm but still super-lightweight.

The women’s fit has a few more color options on sale, including a bright orange, brick red, and this moss green.

This colorblocked hip pack keeps your things safely tucked away on hikes, trips to the grocery, and morning walks with your pup.

Our favorite trail runners for women are just $100. “They’re lightweight and have no break-in time,” says Chelsea Rizzo, co-founder of women’s hiking brand Hikerkind — a statement I can back up, as I wore these straight out of the box on a two-hour hike and emerged without a single blister.

Outdoor Voices’s clearance bin, OV Extra, is an extra 40 percent off today and tomorrow. Most products only have a few sizes or colors available, but these kick-flare pants are in stock in every size and in three wintery hues.

I recently purchased a few pairs of socks from Baggu’s collaboration with Los Angeles-based painter Jessica Williams, including these. They’re only $4 at Shopbop, making them an ideal stocking stuffer.

A set of cute veggie-patterned reusable cloths is a great gift for your eco-conscious friend from college.

At Dermstore, we found this one-and-done hair-care bundle from Olaplex, which features our favorite overall hair mask. Maria Elizabeth, the founder of Salon deZEN, says that the No. 3 hair perfector will “visibly strengthen hair, reduce breakage, and truly improve the overall look and feel” of your hair.

Here’s a handsome set of double-walled glasses with a swirling wave shape for the surfer in your life. It’s also on sale in the shape of iconic mountain ranges, if you want to mix and match or gift a different set to everyone in your crew.

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.
