If you’ve started to panic about holiday shopping, don’t. Lots of toys are on sale at Amazon, there’s a treasure trove of winter coats at Nordstrom, and Sephora just announced a sitewide sale for Beauty Insiders. (Don’t worry: All you need to do to access the sale is sign up with your email address.)

This double-wall vacuum-sealed travel mug keeps hot drinks hot for up to seven hours, making it your new road-trip buddy.

This “space-admiral kitty” baby bouncer has a command center of toys to launch your child’s motor and sensory skills. It adjusts to four different heights, folds flat for storage, and the seat pad is machine washable.

An actually stylish puffer jacket that has a shearling-lined hood and neoprene trimming at the cuffs to keep you extra warm.

Here’s a belted wool coat from Cole Haan in an unexpected denim-blue shade. Black and maroon are also available, but in limited sizes.

Available in sizes newborn through 24 months, these pear-printed footie pajamas have magnetic front closures for easy dressing.

A few of Dyson’s status-y vacuum cleaners are on sale, including former Strategist senior editor Margaret Rhodes’s vacuum of choice. She explains that the selling point is the motors, which are incredibly high-powered — meaning the vacuums and the bristles work like a small tornado designed to very quickly suck up every bit of dust, dirt, and hair.

Sephora Beauty Insiders can take 20 percent off their entire purchase with the code GETGIFTING through December 11. (Signing up is free.) Laneige’s lip mask was Strategist readers’ most-purchased product during Amazon’s Early Access sale earlier this year. You could break this trio up to give individually, or gift it to a skin-care-obsessed sister.

We’ve been raving about Clinique’s Almost Lipstick since 2017, when our former fashion editor wrote an ode about the “black turtleneck” of lipsticks.

Sephora’s in-house brand, Sephora Collection, is 30 percent off too. Makeup artist Janice Kinjo says this eyeliner pencil comes in a fun swath of colors and lasts a long time.

Here are some festive mugs that won’t look out of place after the holiday season is over.

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.
