Since I featured a lot of women’s fashion in yesterday’s sales post, today I focused on the best deals from the men’s department, including swim trunks, water shoes, and a couple of hats. And speaking of UV protection, Dermstore is offering 20 percent off thousands of summer skin-care essentials — including our favorite eye cream and a vitamin-C serum from Sunday Riley. (It’s one of the many retailers that’s got actually good early Memorial Day sales going on, and we’ve rounded up our favorites here.) But scroll on to find other, more limited picks, including a high-design vibrator that’s on sale until midnight and an under-$30 gift idea for Father’s Day.

We named this pillow from Casper (which, by the way, is having a very good Memorial Day sale) our top pick for neck support. It has a firm interior and a cushioned exterior with a breathable cotton cover, so both sides stay cool.

The Aeropress is 20 percent off at Amazon, Target, and Williams-Sonoma. (And at REI, if you’re a member, with the code ANNIV23.) Tyler Gooding of Passenger Coffee in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, uses it for single cups of coffee at both locations because it’s such a consistent cup — “more so than a pour-over,” he says.

Rails Kian 8” Swim Trunks

Some not-too-baggy swim trunks that will arrive before the weekend if you order now.


Sun-care products are 20 percent off at Dermstore with the code SUN, including our best overall eye cream. It’s still a splurge, but according to one dermatologist, it’s “a favorite in my office” for dealing with wrinkles, sagging skin, puffiness, and dark circles.

$94 at Dermstore
with code: SUN

This cult-y vitamin C serum is also 20 percent off, which is about as deep of a discount we see on Sunday Riley products.

$98 at Dermstore
with code: SUN

Dame — makers of sexpert-recommended vibrators — is offering $40 off its wand-style Com until midnight tonight with the code FLASH40. It’s available in two colors, periwinkle and blush pink.

Rothco Boonie Hat

A wide selection of shorts, tank tops, hats, and more summer essentials are half-off at Urban Outfitters — starting with this medium-brimmed hat that’s available in black, olive green, khaki, and navy blue.


And for sunny days, a classic ball cap.

UO Molded Water Shoe

Funky water shoes, in case you want a break from your Crocs.

UO Mya Linen Short

Here are some go-with-anything linen shorts for just $25.

For stylishly stashing pens, pencils, scissors, and more, get this $8 pouch from Ban.do (that would also make a nice makeup bag).

A one-and-done Father’s Day gift set for the tennis-loving dad. It includes four felted tennis balls, a Nalgene water bottle, and a rubber racket charm.

Gift this Zen-garden-like hand towel to a friend who just moved into a new spot.
