In this week’s roundup of the best deals, we’ve found an Anglepoise design classic for almost 50 percent off, an abundance of cut-price cashmere, and a cheeky 25 percent off new-in rugs at La Redoute. We’ve also spotted quite a few on-sale Valentine’s Day gift options, for whoever you’re buying for this year.

Folima Wool Kilim Rug

There are some astonishing savings in La Redoute’s homewares sale — including a further 10 percent off most items. If you’re in the market for a rug, we love this slightly textured kilim option.

£158 at La Redoute
with code: EXTRA10
Ankara Wool Mix Flat Weave Kilim Rug

If you’d rather a more colourful rug, this new-in kilim rug is 25 percent off with the code “NEW.”

Rag and Bone Ring-embellished Leather Slides

Pick up these leather Rag and Bone slides at half price from the Outnet, and wear them smugly in the summer.

Ejing Zhang Hali 18-Karat Gold-Plated Resin Earrings

While we’re perusing the Outnet sale, allow us a fantasy shopping moment with these Alexander Calder–inspired earrings.

Rains Rush Tote Bag

Just like the Rains jackets, this tote is weather-proof and water-resistant, and has a ten-litre capacity. It zips closed, and would make a very decent overnight bag (or a carry-on bag, either).

Rains Weekend Tote

The larger version of that tote is on sale too, in black or navy.

KG Kurt Geiger Tabbi Croc-Print Ankle Boots

An immensely wearable pair of (faux) leather boots from Kurt Geiger.

BUZIO Weighted Blanket Navy Blue

When we scoured Amazon for the best-reviewed weighted blanket, the Buzio was one of the highest-rated options (78 percent of reviewers gave it five stars). It’s currently on sale for £65 (down from £180).

Women Cashmere Relaxed Fit Crew Neck Jumper (Red)

We spotted these crewneck cashmere jumpers, in a slew of colours, on sale from size XXS to 3XL.

Uniqlo Men Cashmere Crew Neck Jumper (Navy)

The men’s version of those cashmere crewnecks is also on sale, but for a less substantial discount.

NARS Cosmetics The Skin Deep Eye Palette

There’s a healthy saving on this all-occasions Nars eyeshadow palette at Look Fantastic.

Aesop Primrose Facial Cleansing Masque 120ml

At just over £25, this Aesop masque would be a delightful Valentine’s Day gift.

Anglepoise Original 1227 Desk lamp - Jet Black

These desk lamps are versatile enough to use in the office, at your bedside, or even as a small floor lamp (when fully extended). We like the classic squared base of the 1227 model, and if jet black isn’t in your colour scheme, the dove grey is also on sale (although at £119, it’s £6 more expensive).

Anglepoise Original 1227 Desk Lamp - Dove Grey
Anglepoise Type 75 Mini Metallic Desk Lamp, Copper Lustre

If you prefer an Anglepoise with a rounded base, we also spotted this mini desk lamp in a pleasing copper shade.

Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

Also on sale at Amazon, a mini smart speaker so useful that three Strategist UK staffers bought it at Christmas.

Lulu Guinness Garnet Large Lips Clutch

There’s nothing wrong with being a little extra around Valentine’s Day, and a signature lips clutch from Lulu Guinness is the ideal accessory. The acrylic handbag is kitschy without being zany, and comes with a detachable gold chain strap so it can be worn as a cross-body, if you’d rather. Salo Hand Painted Large Serving Platter, Multi

We think this platter would look delightful brimming with freshly made French toast, at a special Sunday brunch.
