Black Friday has come and gone, but dedicated shoppers know that lots of things either continue to be on sale — or go on sale anew — for Cyber Monday. And this year, the Cyber Monday deals are excellent, with dozens of new discounts on lots of Strategist hits, including chef-favorite rice cookers, expert-recommended razors, designer-approved sheet sets, and much (much) more. Whether you’re in need of a gift for someone on your holiday list or just shopping for yourself, there’s truly something for everyone.

To make it easier to sort through, we’ve organized this list alphabetically by merchant, from Amazon to Away to Walmart to Wayfair. If you’re looking for a more specific sale, we’ve also rounded up the best Lululemon Cyber Monday deals, the best Target Cyber Monday deals, the best Walmart Cyber Monday deals, and even the best Cyber Monday bedding deals. But if you see something you like, don’t dillydally: A lot of these deals expire tonight.

Brooklinen’s Classic Core sheets are also a longtime Strategist favorite. “It is really hard to beat the quality of these sheets for the price,” says one interior designer we spoke to. “They feel like butter, and still look and feel great after many times in the wash.”

A favorite among celebrities, Strategist writers, and cool teens alike, this machine-washable Barefoot Dreams blanket is made from “amazingly soft” and plush microfiber.

This bouclé cotton sweater from Eileen Fisher is made from organic cotton, which is much (much) easier to care for than wool or cashmere.
