The big news today is that Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is finally open to the public, and I’ve outlined what’s worth buying in our guide here. You’ll find even more picks below, like the contouring bra that’s a Strategist best seller every time this sale rolls around, silk scrunchies, and UGG slippers. And I’ve rounded out today’s sales mishmash with some products on Amazon that are still at Prime Day–level prices, including the portable mini-fan I’ll be buying now that it’s excessively hot outside.

Every time Nordstrom has a major sale, I look for the Natori Feathers bra, which is a Strategist best seller. Sure enough, the cult favorite is 33 percent off in five colors: mauve, light blue, coral, charcoal, and (rarely on sale) beige.

Admittedly, it’s not really the season for these shearling-lined slippers, but this is a good deal on these Scuffs.

Not only do these silk skinny scrunchies look good, but they’re also great for your hair. The silk “keeps the moisture and the natural oils” intact, according to hairstylist Cassandra Normil.

Petit Lem’s adorable pajamas for newborns are nearly 50 percent off in patterns such as dinosaurs, rainbows, and leopard print.

This one-and-done knife set (complete with a handsome acacia-wood block holder) is 60 percent off (!).

Jisulife Handheld Mini-Fan

This mini-fan was one of our top sellers in June and during Prime Day, so I am delighted to see that you can still get it on sale at a steep discount. (We first learned about it from a contributor who toted it all around Milan.)

Another popular category on Prime Day was cleaning supplies. This highly rated steam-mop–vacuum combo from expert-favorite brand Bissell is 30 percent off, which is about as good of a deal as you’ll get.

These are slightly less advanced than the Buds2 Pro (which we named the best earbuds for Samsung users), but they share comparable noise-cancellation abilities and water resistance. They are on sale in four colors — olive (pictured here), lavender, white, or graph — and the cheapest I’ve seen them.

This 32-piece set from teacher-recommended Magna-Tiles is 26 percent off today — perfect for those kids who might be getting bored sitting inside as summer starts to drag on.

Here’s another rainy-day activity for kids: a fine-tipped temporary-tattoo marker kit that washes off in the bath.

The do-everything Instant Pot Pro has handles on the pot that allow you to lift out and serve food directly.

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.
