You may have noticed some posts from our friends at the Strategist on the Cut. They’ll be dropping in every now and again, sharing their expertise on the basics you don’t have time to research and the weird and wonderful things you don’t yet know you need.
For last-minute shoppers who would rather not spend an arm and a leg on loved ones (or those whom you feel obligated to get gifts for), look no further: We rounded up the best giftable deals out there on the internet that, for the most part, will arrive in time for Christmas. Do double-check the shipping situations for each of these, as they are likely to change throughout the day and over the weekend.
Samsung — 49-Inch Class – LED — The Frame Series
An actually elegant-looking TV that’s $400 cheaper than usual.
Hunter Original Play Short Boots
We like the Thom Browne–esque toggle in the back.
Kate Spade Evergreen Fashion Wrap Robe
It’s sort of hard to see in this photo, but this robe is adorned with tiny white dots.
Eberjey Heather Cropped Pant
This is a very good price for some butter-soft Eberjey house pants. They’re on sale in “dusty grape” too. (Also, the Dusty Grapes is our new band name.)
LAUREN Ralph Lauren Classic Sateen Pajama Set
These sateen pj’s are giving us real Darien, Connecticut, vibes.
UGG Alicia Slides
These shearling UGG flip-flops are so nuts that we couldn’t not include them. Also: They kind of make great house shoes? One reviewer put it best: “It’s so ugly it’s pretty, and very on point right now.”
Hunter Original Packable Phone Pouch
If there’s anyone on your list about to go on a trip, this packable phone pouch will come across as a thoughtful gift.
Rebecca Minkoff Jean Wallet on Chain
She will never know that this wallet (that has a chain so it can be worn as a cross-body) was 80 percent off.
Orla Kiely Stem Garden-Print Large Zip Holdall
This floral weekender, made from Orla Kiely’s signature PVC laminated polyester fabric, also comes in red.
If you’re truly stumped, there are few fellas out there who’d turn down a pair of Filson knit gloves.
AmazonBasics 15.4-Inch Felt MacBook Laptop Sleeve Case — Light Gray
Also pretty failproof: a nubby felt laptop sleeve that looks like it cost more than 10 bucks.
Amazon Essentials Women’s Lightweight Lounge Terry Jogger Pajama Pant
These look sort of like the Eberjey sweatpants above (though they might not arrive in time for Christmas).
LEGO ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ Action Battle Hoth Generator Attack Building Kit
We’re not going to pretend we know anything of substance about this Star Wars LEGO set, but comments range from “my grandson loved it” to “great fun for my nephews” to “put together easily,” so we’re sold. (For more Star Wars gifts, click here.)
This Vitamix (our deal of the day, incidentally) was only $10 cheaper on Black Friday, meaning that it’s still a very good price, and no one would not be thrilled to get this for the holidays.
‘Fortnite’ Jumbo Llama Loot Piñata
KitchenAid Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer
We stan a KitchenAid stand mixer here at the Strategist — it’s the type of thing that’s always on our sales radar. This matte-silver is very sleek, and it will arrive by Christmas Eve thanks to free two-day shipping.
Disney ‘Frozen 2’ Puzz 3-D 47-Piece Plastic Hologram Puzzle
For those who are related to rabid Frozen 2 fans, this 3D puzzle might occupy them for a few hours over the holidays.
Disney ‘Frozen 2’ Ultimate Arendelle Castle Playset with Lights and Moving Balcony
For those who are related to rabid Frozen 2 fans and are feeling a little more generous…
Nest Fragrance Festive Candle Duo
And now, a few things we featured earlier in the week in our Shopbop sale roundup — and today is the last day to get two-day shipping if you’re a Prime member. This duo of holiday candles from Nest is good for a mother-in-law type.
Areaware Goober Candle
This candle’s best for a more design-forward friend. We actually own this candle (it sits atop a stack of books in our living room), and it makes us smile every time it catches our eye.
BAGGU Standard Packable Bag Triple Set
Hape Kid’s Checkout Register
For the kid who loves pushing buttons and emptying your wallet to play with your credit cards. (Click here for our mammoth toy gift guide.)
Everlane Lightweight French-Terry Shrunken Hoodie
This shrunken hoodie’s perfect for an impossible-to-shop-for teen on your list, and it’ll arrive by December 24 with express shipping.
Cubcoats (they’re coats that you can smoosh into a stuffed animal) are somewhat of a viral sensation — Hilary Duff and Will Smith are investors.
Eileen Fisher Bateau-Neck Striped Top
This striped top is made from “a soft, stretchy blend of sustainable fibers.”
Slip Silk Beauty Sleep Gift Set
Another sale we wrote about that’s still going strong: the Anthropologie gift sale. This silk pillowcase and eye mask duo would make any skin-care-obsessed woman squeal — but you have to order by 1 p.m. for it to arrive by Christmas Eve without paying a steep shipping fee.
Malin + Goetz Vitamin B5 Body Lotion
Some Malin + Goetz body lotion that’s handsome enough to keep out on the bathroom sink.
Anthropologie Strawberry Baby Booties
These strawberry booties!
Coach Mae Cross-body Bag
Coach’s up-to-50-percent-off sale continues apace, and this cross-body bag is retro without feeling actually vintage.
Coach Small Zip-Around Wallet, Light Peach/Gold
A slightly less-spendy option from Coach: a zip-around wallet in a pleasing shade of peach.
Outdoor Voices Three-Fourths Warm-up Leggings
Leggings are actually not an awful gift because the sizing is usually easyish to figure out. And you can’t go wrong with Outdoor Voices.
Madewell Transport Tote, True Black
This perennial Strategist favorite is rarely on sale in black (though you need to pay $5 for overnight shipping to make sure it arrives in time for Christmas).
Acne Studios Eryn All-Over Print Tee
At Need Supply, everything is 20 percent off (including stuff that’s already on sale). There’s some great stuff available, but it should be noted that you have to pay for express shipping so as to ensure it arrives in time. This groovy Acne turtleneck is made from satin.
Areaware Tall Stacking Planter
This year’s status planter would make a good gift for a proud plant parent.
Hawkins New York Queen-Size Simple Linen Duvet Cover in Rust
This linen duvet cover from Hawkins New York is very inviting.
Brooklinen Classic Queen Core-Sheet Set in Solid White
Who even knew that Need Supply sold Brooklinen bedding?
