Rosephoria Everlasting Rose
Save 15%: If you’re a good partner, you should get your significant other flowers at least once a month — just as a nice gesture. If you’re lucky, those corner deli flowers might last a week. Toss in premium bouquets for birthdays and anniversaries, and you’re spending a few hundred dollars on flowers that ultimately don’t last that long every year.
Which is where Rosephoria’s Everlasting Rose comes in. It’s a much more practical option: each rose is eco-friendly because it cuts down on waste, lasts up to a year and are a cost-effective alternative to buckets of flowers (the Everlasting rose costs $150 for a 9-inch stem and $190 for an 11-inch). Plus, they look enchanting under the included luxury crystal glass dome. If you fancy yourself a practical (lazy) romantic, consider buying one luxury flower that will be there for days to come.
Use discount code Gear10 for 10% off a Rosephoria Everlasting Rose.

Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box
Save up to $157: Utilizing the open real estate on the roof of your car for cargo is a decades-old method of saving on interior space. However, now that modern cars, trucks and SUVs can easily hit 65mph where aerodynamics become a concern means you have to be smarter about how stack gear on your roof. The Thule XT Motion is designed for such a problem. Pack a weekend’s worth of stuff in either the 16-, 18- or 22-cubic foot cargo box and losing MPGs or your duffel bag to highway winds becomes a thing of the past. Today on Amazon you can save up top $157 on a Motion Xt in black or titan grey. — Bryan Campbell
Mophie Wireless Charging Pad
Save $18: If you still haven’t bought a wireless charging pad for your iPhone X, and you know a friend who’s in the same boat, well it’s both your lucky days. That’s because Amazon is selling two Mophie wireless charging pads for pretty cheap. You can get two for just over $60, while Apple is currently selling one for $40. Basically, it’s good to buy in bulk.
Orient Bambino and Mako II
Save up to $155: Right now on Massdrop, you can get a great deal on two of Orient’s most popular timepieces: the dressy, old-school Bambino and the Mako II diver. The former features a slim 40mm case, a domed crystal and a ton of different dial options. The later, meanwhile, boasts a chunky case with a unidirectional rotating bezel and a 200-meter depth rating. Both can be had at exceptionally low prices right now, just $160 for the Bambino (marked down from a $300 MSRP) and $170 for the Mako II (which has a $325 MSRP). — Andrew Connor
Osprey Stratos 24 Daypack
Save 25%: The Osprey Stratos is outfitted with all the pockets, compression straps and access points you’d expect from a backpack company — especially one with a golden reputation among long-distance thru-hikers — but the standout for me has been its mesh back panel. It’s raised and tensioned away from the pack’s main vestibule, which provides a comfy trampoline-like feel and allows lots of air to flow between my back and the bag, which minimizes the sweaty back issue I had used to view as unavoidable. The mesh also integrates into the hip belt, wrapping its arms around my lower torso like a well-studied dance partner for a fit that’s more comfortable than any I’ve known before.
Right now Amazon is offering discounts on all types of Osprey backpacks, and the Stratos is currently 25 percent off. It’s perfect timing for a deal — just in time for fall hiking season. — Tanner Bowden

A Versatile, American-Made Boot on Sale
Save $58 There’s not a man alive who couldn’t stand to benefit from having Chelsea boots in his closet. And right now, Allen Edmonds’ excellent iteration of this hardworking style, the Tate, is on sale. You can save $58 on a pair of American-made boots that you can wear from fall and well into winter, thanks to their sturdy lug soles.— Justin Fenner
Seiko 5 SNKK “Speed Racer”
Save $130: Right now you can get four iterations of the SNKK “Speed Racer” — the SNKK25J1, SNKK27J, SNKK29J1, and SNKK31J1 — on sale at Massdrop. The watch gets its nickname from the colorful minute track that extends from the 12 o’clock position to four. All four models come packing the venerable 7S26 automatic movement, 38mm cases and stainless steel bracelets, and each of the four dial colors on offer will set you back just $90. Massdrop says that’s a $130 drop from the watch’s $220 MSRP, though the reality is that these models will regularly sell for around $100 at places like Jomashop. Still, that’s a fantastic price for a well-made mechanical watch with an irrefutably bold personality. — Andrew Connor
The One Hiking App You Need
Save 50% Hiking is one of those activities that seems like there shouldn’t be any prep until the morning of the hike and you realize you don’t know much about the trail. No matter how big or small the mountain is, it’s always a good idea to at least look at a map of the area and figure out which trail is best to follow. AllTrails is one of the best ways to do just that. The app crowdsources trail maps, reviews and photos from its community of nine million. Right now, if you sign up for a year-long membership, you can save $15. Typically, it’ll cost you $2.50 each month, or $30 for the year, but right now the app is running a 50 percent off promo with code LIFELINE. If you’re not one of the nine million users, we recommend you become one.

Monoprice USB-C Adapters for MacBook and MacBook Pro
Save Up to 50%: Adapting to life with a new MacBook or MacBook Pro can be difficult. Apple’s new computers only have USB-C ports, while most of your current gadgets have cords that connect via USB-A. No bueno. To get them to work together you need an adapter, which is annoying but necessary. Fortunately, Monoprice is having a pretty epic sale for Labor Day on a variety of USB-C adapters. There are USB-C adapters for HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet and docks for USB-A. Whatever you need, there’s a good chance that it’s massively discounted (up to 50-percent) right now.
Wireless Meat Thermometer
Save 15%One of the most repeated lines in cookbooks is some permutation of the following — cook to temperature, not time. Essentially, you’re bringing food to an ideal internal temperature, no matter how many minutes that takes.
Hence why food thermometers are essential, and why Meater’s (pardon the name) Wireless Thermometer is special — it tracks temperature, delivers the reading to your phone in real time and gives you a remaining cooktime reading as well. These features, specifically its cook time helper and wireless capabilities, place it firmly in its own subcategory of food thermometers. You can slide it into a chicken in the oven, a brisket in a smoker or a steak on a cast-iron skillet and know exactly when to pull each.
Today, the Meater Wireless Thermometer is 15 perent off on Huckberry with code MEATER15 at checkout. — Will Price
GSI JavaPress Coffee Brewer
Save 25%: There’s something about a freshly-brewed cup of coffee enjoyed in the wilderness. All the pleasures that accompany the beverage when experienced in the comforts of home or at a favorite cafe are multiplied at a campsite, whether the journey required to get there has already been undertaken or still lies ahead. Without the machinery accessible indoors though, coffee making becomes a modified and slightly more humble process. There is a range of lightweight and packable brewers available, from French press to pour over, but GSI’s JavaPress is our favorite for its ability to serve multiple cups in one batch and for its easy-to-clean construction. It’s currently 25 percent off at Moosejaw (and if pour over is more your style, GSI’s JavaDrip is also on sale). — Tanner Bowden
Rhone Apparel on Sale
Save 10% Rhone Apparel makes some of the best performing tees and shorts in the fitness world. On top of that, they also make sweat-wicking gear for your off-days, too. The brand designs chinos and polos with performance features to keep you on top of your game at all times. Right now, Huckberry is offering 10 percent off all Rhone apparel, so that you can stock up on shorts, tees, sweats and polos. Here are a few of our favorites. — Meg Lappe

BioLite Labor Day Sale
Save 15%: BioLite isn’t your typical outdoor equipment company. Its product, instead of aiming to be as lightweight as possible, pack in unexpected functionalities. Take the new FirePit for example — it’s a portable, freestanding fireplace, but it’s also a grill, and its flame is smokeless thanks to an innovative fan system that can be controlled via Bluetooth (the fan module can also charge your phone). These forward-thinking mechanisms are BioLite’s modus operandi; batteries and Bluetooth are at home next to fire and food. In a way, BioLite is as much a tech company is it is an outdoor brand.
For Labor Day, BioLite is providing 15 percent off a variety of its products with the code CHILLOUT. Exclusions apply, but favorites like the CampStove 2 and BaseLantern XL are up for grabs. — Tanner Bowden
Forsake Range Shoes
Save 15%: At the core of the city-to-mountain trend is the idea of versatile functionality, that a jacket or a backpack or a pair of pants could operate in harsh wilderness environments and be minimal and stylish enough for life around town too. When it works, it means you can cull the contents of your closet.
Forsake hit on this idea before it became so popular. Its founders sought a pair of shoes that could handle slush and mud and hiking but were as comfortable and wearable as sneakers. Now there are numerous companies making shoes like this, but Forsake has always led the pack with styles reminiscent of skate shoes and chukkas. Its newest model, the Range, make good on this idea with a water-repellent exterior and a rugged Vibram MegaGrip sole, and it’s available in mid and low profiles on Huckberry for 15 percent off. — Tanner Bowden
Kamado Joe Classic
Save $403>Everyone knows what a Big Green Egg is (or has heard of it, at the very least) — a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven. Anyone who’s tried to buy one also knows they don’t come cheap and you can’t buy them online. The Egg didn’t have much real competition in its space for the first few decades of its existence (the company was founded in the mid-70s), but has encountered a great deal of it in Kamado Joe.
The Kamado Joe is also a heavy ceramic, heat-retaining, outdoor grill, smoker and oven (both are backed by lifetime warranties), but it’s available online and comes with features the Big Green Egg doesn’t. The two most impactful is its patented Divide & Conquer cooking system, which manifests itself as grates that can be lifted up or down in certain sections (BBQ Guys has a nice illustration of it), and an ash drawer that slides out for simplified cleaning (the lid is also much easier to lift, for what it’s worth).
Today, the Kamado Joe Classic (18-inch) is $400 off, a price that’s easily the lowest we’ve ever seen it on Amazon. — Will Price
Zero Halliburton’s Best Luggage is on Sale Now
Save 15% If you’re a Mission Impossible or James Bond fan, you’ve likely spotted these metallic-sided suitcases and briefcases. Zero Halliburton designs epic rollaboards from aircraft grade aluminum — a la how NASA moved rock samples from the moon down to earth. It’s that intense. The silver carry-on measures 19-inches and comes with a 10-year warranty, but with the secure closures and stain-resistant lining, it’s unlikely that dust, dirt and grime will have its way with your new suitcase. TSA-friendly is a necessity these days (who is still checking their bags?!), and there’s truly no other way to roll along unless your bag has four wheels. Use code ZERO at checkout to get an additional 15 percent off. — Meg Lappe
Cheap Outdoor Furniture
Save Up to 65%>Need hardwearing, cheap outdoor furniture that you won’t feel bad about leaving out in the rain? Wayfair’s Labor Day deals span many categories, but few offer the depth of discount that the outdoor and patio furniture category does (up to 65 percent off). Disclaimer: these products are not high design and they’re unlikely to draw the “where did you get that?” question. They are, however, sturdy, affordable items that can withstand a bit of weather. Here are some of our favorites. — Will Price
Thursday, August 30
Save up to 40%: Need a luggage refresh? You’re in luck: Nordstrom Rack is offering an insane amount of Tumi luggage for up to 40 percent off. Pick from scores of backpacks, satchels, briefs, duffels and hard-sided suitcases in a plethora of colors and materials. Basically, there’s something to fulfill anyone’s needs, but you’ll have to act quickly, as the flash sale ends in a day. — Andrew Connor
The 13 Best Labor Day Sales to Shop Now
Save up to 70% Labor Day weekend might be the official end of summer, but it’s also one of the best weekends of the year to hit the stores. Practically every brand under the sun hosts a list of deals — whether for back to school, summer gear they can’t get rid of, or last season’s winter apparel. Whether you’re hitting the mall during the long weekend (best of luck) or shopping from afar, here are 13 of the top sales we can’t wait to shop. — Meg Lappe
Boot Up with Wolverine
Save Over 40% Nordstrom Rack is selling two great pairs of Wolverine’s Cromwell Chelsea Boots for over 40 percent off. You can get them in either smooth dark brown leather or an olive suede. Or, since the savings are so good, you could add both to your rotation.— Justin Fenner
Peak Design Quick-Release Camera Holster
Save $20: Multiple cameras? Getting action shots while riding two-up on the back of a motorcycle? It’s all in the day’s work of a modern photographer, so why not make shooting from the hip easier with a quick release camera holster like the Peak Design Camera Clip. The Camera Clip’ lightweight aluminum and glass-reinforced nylon construction is the tool you need for photography on the fly. And today you can get this action photography essential for 30% off.— Bryan Campbell
L.L. Bean Labor Day Sale
Save 25%: Heritage New England outdoor brand L.L.Bean has been in business for over 100 years. Its first-ever product? The sort-of ugly, undeniably-iconic Bean Boot. Leon Leonwood Bean (yeah, that’s what the L.L. stands for) designed them as a solution to prevent wet feet while hunting in Maine’s damp conditions. The design of the boot hasn’t changed much since: it features a stout rubber bottom and a hardy leather upper, which makes them ideal for winter’s inclement conditions. The boots have spread beyond hunting though, and now come in different heights with various linings for different temperatures and uses. Right now, there’s an extensive collection of Bean Boot models (as well as apparel) up for sale on L.L.Bean’s website — just use the code LABORDAY at checkout.
Save 30%: Founded in 1987, Paris-based A.P.C. made a name for itself perfecting the wardrobe staples. Abstaining from obtuse branding and superfluous details, the brand instead focuses on quality fabrics and timeless silhouettes. Though much of what A.P.C. offers is notable, the brand’s jeans have something of a cult following because they don’t look like a typical pair of Levi’s — they’re slim without being skinny and they have a slightly tapered leg. If you’re in the market for a new pair jeans, East Dane is currently offering 30 percent of three A.P.C. Jeans. With both indigo and black options available, this sale is a great chance to save on some tasteful denim that won’t go out of style anytime soon. — John Zientek

J.Crew’s End-of-Summer Sale

In some cases, that means savings of over 70 percent once you make your way to checkout. All you have to do to take advantage of that very deep discount is enter the appropriately articulated code BIGSALE.— Justin Fenner
Camouflage Nato Straps
Save $6: While a camo Nato strap might not pair perfectly with everything, they look damn good on tool watches both vintage and modern. Cheapestnatostraps.com, a great resource for all sorts of inexpensive watch straps, currently has a selection of some of their Premium Natos on sale for just a few bucks each in 20 and 22mm (their premium Natos feature heavy nylon that’s hand-sewn with strong threading for extra durability). Shipping is free on orders over $25 and most straps are very reasonably priced, so we would highly recommend that you peruse their entire site. — Oren Hartov
Stylmartin Wave Boots
Save 10%: Motorcycle boots you can wear casually yet still come with genuine protection aren’t too hard to find — you just have to know where to look. However, finding a pair that can double as semi-formal wear, those are a little rarer. The Stylmartin Wave boots land right in that niche with PU ankle protective inserts and wingtip style full-grain waxed leather uppers. You’ll notice the wingtip toe cap is slightly off-center, but that’s to double up against wear from your foot controls. Who said style and substance couldn’t go hand in hand?– Bryan Campbell
National Geographic Hiking and Travel Maps
Save 15%: There’s no substitute for a trail map. Even if you are an app-user, you should have one stashed in your backpack for worst-case scenarios. A hard copy of a trail map is at best an easy way to prevent catastrophe, and at worst, it’s a cheap memento of a trip that you can save on a bookshelf for future use.
National Geographic’s trail maps are some of the best available — they’re waterproof, tear-resistant and show essential information like points of interest and elevation. Right now, trail maps for many of the United States’ National Parks and wilderness regions are on sale for 15 percent off with the code LABORDAY15. (And if you need a road map or a t-shirt, the code applies to those items too — it applies to everything on the site.) — Tanner Bowden
JackRabbit Labor Day Massive Sneaker Sale
Save up to 50% Finding a pair of decent running shoes under $100 is always a feat. One of the best ways to do it is to take advantage of sales that come around every so often. Those moments are happening right now at JackRabbit. Thanks to the massive amount of Labor Day sales everywhere, you can find sneakers for under $80, which is quite the steal — in addition to running apparel and hydration equipment. We picked out three of the shoes we’re most excited to see on sale. Each is an excellent addition to your running sneaker rotation, whether you love gym sessions or track workouts. — Meg Lappe
TOPS Knives Little Bugger Fixed Blade
Save 37%: Earlier this summer, TOPS Knives released the Little Bugger, a miniature fixed-blade pocket knife designed for everyday carry. The decision to make a small blade was in keeping with the current trend of little everyday knives, but to make it a fixed blade, and a Wharncliffe at that makes the Little Bugger worthy of interest.
The Little Bugger has all the hallmarks of a well-built fixed-blade including a full-tang construction and micarta handles, but designer Matt Graham’s decision to use a Wharncliffe blade shape makes it ideal for shrinking. Wharncliffe knives feature a flat edge and a spine that slopes from handle to point, thereby creating a form that reduces the chances of accidental piercings while maintaining a practical cutting edge. Wharncliffes have historically been favored by woodworkers, farmers and sailors for its precision and utility.
The Little Bugger is 5.75 inches in length with a 2.38-inch blade made of 1095 stainless steel. The design leaves enough of a handle for a solid grip and enough blade for a range of tasks. The knife is still quite new, but right now you can add one to your kit for 37 percent off — that’s $45 in savings — thanks to a deal currently running at Massdrop. — Tanner Bowden
Sony WH1000XM2 and the Bose QC35 II Noise-Canceling Headphones
Save $50: The Sony WH1000XM2 and the Bose QC35 II are, undoubtedly, two of the best noise-canceling headphones you can buy. They’re fairly different, though, with Bose’s pair being more lightweight and comfortable to wear, and Sony’s pair being more feature-packed. Both sound great and have excellent noise-canceling abilities. And both normally hover in the $350 price range. You can read our full reviews on both the Sony WH1000XM2 (here) and the Bose QC35 II (here) if you want to dive a little deeper, but from a consumer’s perspective, both these top-tiered headphones are under $300 right now on Amazon.
Save 71%: Founded in 1917, Persol has become a symbol of luxury Italian eyewear over the past century. The brand’s sunglasses have distinct silhouettes complimented with inset arrow details at the hinge and Meflecto flexibility. Worn by countless celebrities, vintage Persols command high prices on the secondhand market and are exceedingly hard to come by. Even new frames aren’t inexpensive with prices far exceeding $300. If you want to pick up a new pair of Persols, but don’t want to drain your savings, head over to Nordstrom Rack. Currently, three pairs of metal-frame shades are 71 percent off and cost just $100 — you’ll save $250 on each pair. — John Zientek
