Reward yourself for getting through the past week (and, if we’re being honest, the past four years) with a little something special that is available on-sale. There are plenty of cold-weather-friendly deals for staying home or venturing out, like a bunch of $50-and-under coats and fleeces (for both him and her), a J.Crew women’s lapel blazer that’s over 70 percent off, and a cotton-wool-blend beanie.

This not-visibly-branded cotton-wool blend beanie comes in grey, green, oatmeal, camel, and burgundy, as well as this cheery red.
