All of the Best Post-Christmas Sales: From Anthropologie to Zappos

Illustration: The Strategist

While most of December is spent finding gifts for others, the time between Christmas and early January — invariably flush with post-holiday sales — is always ideal for finding gifts for yourself. So, if you didn’t unwrap those fresh bedsheets or those new waterproof boots you wanted, now is the time to treat yourself. Retailers from Everlane to Nordstrom to Zappos are slashing prices on countless items, but as anyone who has shopped a post-Christmas sale knows, the best deals can often be buried. That’s why we’ve been keeping an eye on all of them in order to find the stuff worth spending money on. To make this list easier to shop, we’ve also arranged it alphabetically by retailer (in Strategistspeak, that’s from Anthropologie to Zappos). Where applicable, we’ve also noted how long each retailer’s sale lasts.


Anthropologie is taking 30 percent off select in-stock furniture, bedding, and home décor, along with an extra 40 percent off already-on-sale items. (On eligible products, the additional discount applies automatically once you’ve added them to your cart.)


Over at Backcountry, a bunch of stuff from hardwearing brands like Patagonia, Arc’teryx, the North Face, Fjallraven, and more are up to 40 percent off. The sale ends January 7.
