Today’s daily sales mishmash is brought to you by the desire to be comfy: We found fleecy half-zips at Girlfriend Collective, cloudlike lounge pants at Outdoor Voices, and faux-fur-lined slippers at Nordstrom. Plus there’s a luxe loose-leaf tea set you could gift to your mom (or keep for yourself) and some hydrating skin care for the cold winter days that have yet to arrive.

National Geographic play kits are on sale at Amazon in case you have a crafty kid you need to keep occupied over winter break. This set has everything they need to jump-start their career as a ceramicist.

If you’re ever stumped on what to get for a new boyfriend, picky brother, or doesn’t-want-anything dad, slippers are a basically foolproof gift. These are very plush and are just $30.

And here’s another $30 gift: A quartet of organic loose-leaf teas from Palais de Thés.

Some faux-fur-lined booties for protecting toes from puddle-jumping. They’re available in kids’ sizes 4 through 10.

Girlfriend Collective is still running their Black Friday sale, where you can take 35 percent off sitewide and up to 70 percent off clearance products. This half-zip pullover would be nice on a chilly morning hike (even if that hike is just to the corner store).

Speaking of athleisure, Outdoor Voices is offering up to 50 percent off its line of ultra-comfy CloudKnit loungewear. These stretchy boxer shorts hit the under-$20 gifting sweet spot.

Strategist editor Maxine Builder calls these pants her favorite loungewear to wear “for any activity, indoors or out.” They also make for an excellent gift: Former senior editor Anthony Rotunno bought the sweats in navy for his mom.

Sephora Beauty Insiders can take 20 percent off their entire purchase with the code GETGIFTING through December 11. (Signing up is free.) If your skin is starting to feel dry and clogged, turn to this salicylic-acid-based exfoliating toner for removing dead skin cells that our beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton uses for busting her persistent blackheads.

This hydrating trio from Fresh was already on sale, making it doubly discounted.

In case you need some new luggage for holiday travel, a smattering of suitcases from cool-person-approved brand Calpak are on sale through the end of December. You’ll have no trouble spotting this one on the baggage carousel.

This toiletry bag would make for a thoughtful stocking stuffer.

Here’s a discount exclusively for our readers: Take 20 percent off everything at M.Gemi with the code 20STRAT through December 11. We recommend snapping up our pick for the best driving loafers, which Deanna Eng, vice-president of strategy at Beam, calls a go-to because of how versatile yet presentable they are.

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.
