Maybe it’s because I live in Austin, Texas, and it’s been well over 70 degrees this past week, but I’m fully in spring-break mode — and today’s sales mishmash is chock-full of warm-weather-ready deals. Below, you’ll find noise-cancelling headphones to make cross-country flights bearable, a tomato-shaped Dutch oven for serving gazpacho with pizazz, and a trio of wine totes for your next park picnic. Plus, Ban.do and Urban Outfitters are both having excellent warehouse sales you won’t want to miss that end tonight.

These noise-canceling Beats headphones are a favorite of Daniela Soto-Innes — the chef and co-owner of Atla and Cosme, who was named the “World’s Best Female Chef” in 2019. She especially loves that they never fall off and stay put “whether I’m walking to work or working out.”

We’ve been big fans of Staub’s “forever cookware” for years for its even cooking and superior heat retention, and are enamored with this tomato-shaped cocotte. It is oven safe up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit, dishwasher safe, and chip-resistant.

Picnic blanket brand Rumpl is known for its sleeping-bag-like throws, but if you’d like a slimmer option, buy this floral “everywhere mat” that features a waterproof underside.

Spoil your pup with this snuggly bed without sacrificing your interior-design style. Plus, the cover is removable and machine washable.

From $18

Yes, I’ve been talking all week about how over a thousand home-décor, apparel, and beauty products are half off at Urban Outfitters — but that all ends tonight. For all my brunch lovers on a budget, our favorite miniature waffle maker is on sale in three spring-y designs: lavender, butter yellow, and floral.

In our guide to the very best chinos, fashion writer and DJ Isaac Hindin-Miller pronounced that the Dickies 874s are the “sturdiest pants on the market, stain-resistant, classic, and will never go out of style.” These are still available in nine colors, which are appropriate for both work and play.

In more pants news, full-priced apparel is 30 percent off at Levi’s through midnight tonight. Many stylish men have called the straight-leg 501s the gold standard of men’s denim for their universally flattering fit, variety of washes (there are 23), and durability — and they can be yours for $56 today.

Ban.do’s massive warehouse sale ends tonight, so don’t dillydally. Tote your vino to the picnic without fear of spills with this cheery trio of wine holders from Baggu.

Group Partner’s whimsical, boob- and butt-shaped planters are a delight, and three are on sale at Ban.do. I purchased another Group Partner planter as a gift for my boyfriend several years ago and it still brings me great joy to see it on our kitchen counter each day.

And finally, this trio of colorful, 100 percent Turkish-cotton kitchen towels from Food52’s in-house line is just $20.
