Il Bisonte Pencil Case
Save 23%: Need a better place to store your pens? Now at Todd Snyder, you can save 23 percent on a vegetable-tanned leather pencil case from Il Bisonte.

Vintage Style Helmets
Save Up to $200: Most modern helmets have a style either Storm Troopers or Fighter pilots can really be on board with — and they often come slathered in bright, cartoonish graphics. When it comes to safety you should never short yourself, but you shouldn’t rob your helmet of style either. These four helmets offer modern-levels of protection but come with coveted timeless looks, not to mention steep discounts. — Bryan Campbell

Ray-Ban Sunglasses
Save 50%: If you don’t have good sunglasses, it’s worth investing in a pair before the sunnier months. If you’re looking for a good deal on a respected brand, head over to Nordstrom Rack and check out the selection of Ray-Bans. Most pairs are 50 percent off and prices start as low as $58 — hard to beat that. — John Zientek

East Dane Spring Sale
Save at least 20%: Now is the perfect time to invest in quality wardrobe basics because East Dane is having a site-wide sale. For both full-price and sale items, you can save 20 percent on orders under $500 and 25 percent on orders over $500. While anything on the site is game, if you shop basics in the current sale section, you can get the most savings on brands like Velva Sheen, Saturdays NYC and A.P.C. To take advantage of deals, use the code EVENT18 at checkout, but don’t wait — the sale ends Sunday. — John Zientek

Ninja Intelli-Sense Kitchen System
Save $70: In the age of limited cabinet and countertop space, all tools must make their keep and provide more than a single utility. Ninja’s Intelli-Sense Kitchen System’s powerful 1200 watt base comes with a classic Ninja crush blender, a food processor and a personal-sized, to-go blend unit. The touchscreen-operated base recognizes which attachment you’re using instantly and pulls up a list of pre-programmed work cycles. The system is powerful enough to turn ice into snow and can finesse hunks of veggies into evenly-diced bits. Ninja’s entire Intelli-Sense Kitchen System is 30 percent off right now on Wal-Mart (cheaper than it’s ever been on Amazon, too). — Will Price
