As an Amazon shopping writer, I spend roughly eight hours a day scouring the site to find the best deals on everything from clothes and shoes to tech and home goods. It's safe to say that I've visited every hidden section and landing page the retailer has to offer, so I know a thing or two about finding under-the-radar steals. And this Presidents Day weekend, I'm sharing 15 deals that are simply too good to pass up.

My picks span the fashion, beauty, and home categories, including top-rated leggings, a cozy cardigan, dreamy slippers, the viral Revlon hot brush, and a best-selling satin pillowcase. Keep scrolling to check out all of my editor-approved picks from Amazon's Presidents Day sale

Editor-Loved Deals From Amazon's Presidents Day Sale 

Levi’s Sherpa Trucker Jacket

I’ve had my eye on this faux-shearling-lined Levi’s denim jacket for years. It’s made with non-stretch denim in a boxy silhouette and has both side slant pockets and front snap pockets. You can throw this jacket over just about anything, and it’ll instantly give you an effortlessly cool vibe. Right now, it’s on sale for just $69, which is 30 percent off the original price.

Core 10 High-Waisted Full-Length Legging

I don’t know about you, but I’m guilty of almost exclusively wearing black leggings. I always tell  myself I should switch it up, but I hardly ever follow through. This sale is the perfect time to invest in a pair of statement leggings that won’t break the bank. I’m especially a fan of these maroon Core 10 leggings that shoppers say they’d “choose these over lululemon, considering price, texture, feel, and comfort.”

Alternative Eco-Fleece Slim Fit Jogger Pant

If you’ve ever purchased something from Alternative, then you know how heavenly soft their fabric is. Made from a cotton and polyester blend, these slim-fit joggers have an elastic waistband with an adjustable drawstring and convenient side pockets. You can wear them with a cozy sweatshirt to lounge around the house, or throw on a denim jacket and head out the door.

Ekouaer Long-Sleeve Pajama Set

In my opinion, you can never have too many pairs of pajamas. This matching set with over 5,000 five-star ratings includes a long sleeve button-down top and loose pants, both in a super-soft, stretchy material, and comes in 43 different colors and patterns. Plus, you can probably get away with wearing the top for Zoom meetings — no one will ever know it’s a pajama shirt!

Merokeety Open-Front Cardigan

While working from home, I like to have a comfy cardigan or zip-up sweatshirt around that I can throw on whenever I get cold or want to feel like I’m wrapping myself in a blanket. The Merokeety Open-Front Cardigan is a fan-favorite on Amazon with nearly 12,000 perfect ratings. “I have been looking for a cardigan like this for SO LONG,” one reviewer wrote. “Other ones I see are always way too long or itchy. This one is a good length, has pockets, and is actually soft! It is lightweight but does a great job of keeping me warm during a long day at work.”

If you’re a beauty lover, you’ve likely heard of the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush. The viral hair styling tool lets you go from sopping wet hair to a salon-quality blowout in minutes.

RevitaLash Cosmetics Hi-Def Brow Gel

Most people say eyes are the window to the soul, but for me, it’s all about the brows. Nothing frames your face like a pair of full, sculpted brows, and the easiest way to achieve that look is with a brow gel. Available in clear, soft brown, and dark brown, this RevitaLash brow gel has an application spoolie on one side and a brush on the other, so you can shape and fill in your brows with one tool.

Bedsure Satin Pillowcase

I switched to a satin pillowcase a few months ago, and it has completely leveled up my hair and skin game. I used to wake up with strands of hair all over my pillow and creases on my cheeks, but my new pillowcase has resolved both of those issues. You don’t have to spend over a hundred dollars on a silk pillowcase, either —  you can get one on sale at Amazon for just $11.

Paddywax Candles Wabi Sabi Collection Scented Candle

Not only does a candle bring warmth and a delicious scent to your space, but it can also serve as a design element in its own right. This Paddywax candle is a perfect example — it’s covered in an understated geometric print that will elevate any space, while also giving off a spicy aroma of amber and sandalwood. And when you finish burning the candle, you can keep the container for decor.

If you're working from home and live with roommates or family members who are also working from home, then you understand the importance of high-quality headphones.
