Drying off with a sopping wet towel is not how anyone should start their morning. Made from 100 percent long-stapled cotton, Ethohome bath towels are woven with a curved weave, meaning they’re lightweight, breathable and dry more quickly than the average bath towel. This not only results in a better overall feel, one that’s both soft and absorbent, but it also reduces the chances that your daily towel grows mold or microscopic bacteria. Unless, of course, you like that sort of thing.

Seiko 5 SNZG
Save $145: If you tend to gravitate toward smaller watches, then the 37mm Seiko 5 SNK series is a great, affordable field watch. However, if you’re looking for something on the larger side, then the SNZG, which features a 42mm case, is probably a better bet. And the good news is that you can pick one up for $105 right now on Massdrop.
The SNZG features the automatic 7S36C 23-jewel movement with day-date complication and 41-hour power reserve, Hardlex crystal and display caseback, 100m of water resistance, lumed baton hands, and a red-tipped seconds hand. You also get an internal 24-hour scale and a stainless steel bracelet. If you’d prefer a different color, there are also beige, green and black options with matching straps for an additional $10.— Oren Hartov
Marpac Dohm Classic
Save 37% Since 1962, Marpac’s entire purpose has been rather singular: making people sleep better. The Dohm white noise generator is its most known, recommended and, arguably, most effective product.
The Dohm is a small, sci-fi-looking sleep accessory that is about as simple as it gets to operate (turn it on and twist the top until you like the emitted sound). It comes recommended by the likes of Wirecutter, Health, Sleep Advisor and many more, too.
In a product space filled to the brim with gimmicky crap and marketing promises, Marpac’s Dohm represents a simple, trusted solution to a problem everybody has. The classic Dohm (in white only) is marked down from $50 to $31 today, which is the lowest price we’ve ever seen it.
KEF Q150 Bookshelf Speakers
Save $250: KEF released its Q150 bookshelf speakers ($550) last year, in 2017, and they’re the next-evolution of the companies revered Q100 bookshelf speakers ($550). There are a couple big differences. The bass port has been moved to the back of the Q150s and their cabinet has a new rugged finish to help minimize distortion. Also, the new speakers now have the same Uni-Q driver array as the company’s high-end LS50 ($999) and LS50 Wireless ($1,999) speaker systems. As for sound, that’s going to make these really dynamic bookshelf speakers with a broad soundstage, rich midrange and highs, as well as punchy bass. The bottom line is that the KEF Q150 are really nice passive bookshelf speakers, especially for the price. And now Amazon is offering them for almost half off. The normally $550 bookshelf speakers are going for just $300 – that’s $250 off.
Otterbox Venture Cooler Sale
Save 15%:Otterbox is known for its success in protecting your phone from drops. Then the brand launched coolers. Its rugged coolers are just as intense as its dry boxes and phone cases. Last summer, Otterbox introduced its first cooler and proved its background in tech protection works just as great for cooler making. Each Venture cooler features an integrated injection-molding and high-grade cooling technologies. The anti-slip rubber feet stay put on long car rides and rickety platforms. Inside, some separators create compartments for wet and dry goods, and you can add on a cutting board or side table so anyone who’s with you can become your sous chef. Right now Otterbox is running a deal where all Venture coolers are 15 percent off. Pick from three sizes: the 25-, 45- and 65-quart. If you’re heading out for a weekend, opt for the $255 45-quart (down from $300) and if vacation lasts a week, the 65-quart at $298 (down from $350) will do the trick. — Meg Lappe

Mazama Cocktail Glasses
Save $13: To say ‘you don’t need a whiskey glass to drink whiskey’ is like saying ‘you don’t need shoes to run a mile.’ Sure, any old glass will get the job done, but at some point, you have to wonder why you’re drinking whiskey at all. These 8-ounce tumblers from Mazama, Tanner Goods’s sister company, would make a great addition to any self-respecting home bar. They come in three colors, all on sale at Huckberry — though you’ll receive the best deal on the Charcoal color, which is the best-looking one, anyway. — Jack Seemer
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $50: The Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs are some of the best wireless, noise-canceling headphones you can buy. Obviously, with the wireless noise-canceling headphone market heating up these days, there’s stiff competition from the likes of Sony, Bowers & Wilkins and Sennheiser, amongst others, but the Bose QuietComfort 35 IIs are truly the lightest, most comfortable and most travel-friendly of any of them. And they have excellent noise-canceling abilities and sound damn good, too.
