Not only is Memorial Day the unofficial start of summer, but it’s also arguably THE best weekend for shopping home goods and appliances on sale. Many of us wait all year for discounts on our favorite sheets, towels, kitchen appliances and dishes, just to name a few.
Spoiler: Most of us have already shopped Parachute’s sale. Two words: Linen. Sheets. You won’t be disappointed. And Shana’s gorgeous flatware set? Also on sale (and the rest of Food52 is 25% off, too with code SUMMER!)
Looking for just a giant Memorial Day sales list? Look no further — here’s our big Memorial Day Sales Cheat Sheet and our Memorial Day Sales Guide Page to see the best ones (including our top pics). Go crazy, guys.
Best Memorial Day Sales 2023: Our Fave Home Decor, Appliances, Cookware, Bedding, Patio & More
This year, we’ve curated an extensive list of our favorite home products: the goods that we’ve used personally, the products that are actually in our homes. With so many years of recommending and researching gadgets and furniture, between all, uh…20 of us? We have some strong opinions on all things home.
From cookware and appliances to bath, bedding and patio, these are the Memorial Day sale deals that we can personally recommend. Additionally (because we couldn’t resist) there are a couple of just really pretty home finds that we also had to share.
Happy shopping, everyone!
Top Kitchen Appliances On Sale
Making better coffee faster, finding easy (and quick) ways to get dinner on the table, or (finally) splurging on that blender are smart moves on Memorial Day weekend with these massive sales. Here’s a short list of the appliances we swear by to make our busy lives a little easier…that also happen to be on sale.
This Nespresso coffee maker is a TME team favorite, maybe one of our most beloved items ever. It’s safe to say that it’s 110% worth the hype, and has been a total morning game-changer.
2. Instant Pot
If you don’t already have an Instant Pot…now’s a great time to snap one up. Most of the editors swear that they can produce the same sort of cooking-all-day-meals in under an hour, making this appliance a savior of weeknight dinners. Here’s Laura’s favorite Instant Pot recipe, for example: Instant Pot Egg-Roll Bowls (yum!).
There really is no other blender like the Vitamix. The editors who have one all get…oddly passionate when asked about this appliance. It’s amazing for daily breakfast smoothies, homemade ice cream and even soups. If you’ve yet to take the plunge on this one, now’s the time.
Coming in at a lower price than the cult-favorite Vitamix, The NutriBullet is our go-to for making banana pancakes. Just add some oats, banana and oat milk, and voilà — an easy and healthy breakfast. It blends the oats so well and makes the perfect pancake-batter consistency.
“If you’ve been putting off getting an air fryer like I was? Well, friend: This is the air fryer for you. I’m not going to go as far as to say it’s too good to be true, but it’s surpassed my expectations at every turn.” —Em (Read all about her new mom mealtime hack here.)
The only thing better than a Crockpot is a Crockpot with a latched lid that you can carry it to a friend’s house, or even to the park for a late-night playdate/outdoor dinner party. Needless to say, in the past two years in particular, we were REALLY happy to have one of these.
Top Cookware & Tabletop Picks On Sale
Anyone else ready to replace dull kitchen knives or upgrade dishes to ones that won’t scratch or get those lines in them? (Stonewear is the culprit, BTW.) Or if it’s just time for new cookware…Memorial Days sales are great for making these types of kitchen upgrades within reach. Our Place is a team favorite.
A sharp knife is not only a joy to use, but it’s actually safer. These Our Place knives are really well made (and come in eight pretty colors). You can buy each separately, but this (discounted) trio comes with all three: a chef’s knife, serrated knife and paring knife. This (also discounted) trio set also comes with a nice thick wooden cutting board/serving platter. So worth it.
Think: soups, chili, stews, pork, one-pot pasta dishes. Le Creuset cookware is beautiful enough to leave range-top in resting position. Makes some delicious warmth and comfort food every day. The colors are bold and fun.
Another seriously pretty option, Staub, like Le Creuset, makes heirloom-quality products. And this Dutch oven is so pretty! So many colors & sizes.
I love stoneware, but I sure don’t love my teeth hurting from fork sounds during EVERY MEAL. Nor do I like the telltale lines that all stoneware gets with use. Porcelain is a fix for both issues. These porcelain dishes have a more modern look than your traditional lipped style. They’re durable, simple and oh-so chic. TBD on sales!
Top Home Electronics On Sale
Really, if we were to point to ONE THING that makes cleaning sooooo much easier, the team agrees: Dyson. We love its air purifiers (a few on sale now) but are head-over-heels for the vacuums. If you couldn’t already tell.
Shana says this changed her life, so of course…I need to try it out.
Top Outdoor & Patio Picks On Sale
It’s that time of year: Fire up the BBQ, get the s’mores ready, and watch the sun go down. Oh…and sell some lemonade. A patio set will help.
1. Weber Grill
There are a ton of grills on the market, but this Weber is our favorite. We’re kinda partial to the fun colors…but there are also plain versions as well.
Everyone who owns a Solo Stove raves and raves and raves about it. It really does reduce the smoke (and keep the smell out of your hair). If anyone is on the fence about size…the bigger one does work better in terms of smoke management.
Target always has great deals for Memorial Day, including on its outdoor furniture (30% off right now). What better time to make your patio feel cozy?
We’re big fans of the outdoors year-round — but definitely soak up as much fresh air as possible in the summer. Rumpl blankets keep us warm as the temps drop (during those cozy fire pit hangs), as well as provide a comfy layer for beach days or park picnics. Truly the best outdoor blanket ever.
Top Bedding Picks On Sale
We couldn’t live without our Parachute sheet sets and Slip silk pillowcases. This Memorial Day, Parachute’s 20% off sitewide sale has us SO excited (time to upgrade!!), & anytime we can find Slip Silk pillowcases on sale? We grab.
Parachute features our favorite sheets here at TME. “My favorite among them is the Linen European set — no top sheet — and I prefer the envelope back enclosures on the cases. They’re made of European flax in a family-owned workshop in Portugal.” -Annmarie
These cotton sheets look amazingly luxurious and soft (with the reviews PROVE it). Woven from Boll & Branch’s “signature super-soft, airy, long-staple organic cotton.” Uh, yes.
The Slip Pure Silk Pillowcase is another product we love. We swear by silk pillowcases to prevent frizz while we’re sleeping, and we’ve heard that it helps with wrinkles too. At least that what we’re telling ourselves.
Top Towel Picks On Sale
Grabbing a bunch of your fave luxe towels OR a bunch of fun, bright, colorful ones for summer never struck better timing. (Reminder to throw those old, ratty ones away — you deserve to feel like you’re wrapped in a cloud on the daily.)
These Classic Turkish Cotton Towels from Parachute have AMAZING reviews and for good reason: They’re super-high quality, and wash and dry like a dream. S has had hers for a couple of years now, and they’re still fluffy, soft and thick.
Top Home Decor Picks On Sale
Here are some cute (and functional!!) pieces to keep your home looking gorgeously organized + put-together. We love some fancy home updates (especially in the form of giant gold mirrors).
Behold — the stunning Anthropologie mirrors that S has in her bedroom, ON SALE! She has the largest size, but they’re all insanely gorgeous. The gold has such a nice, vintage vibe, but these mirrors are available in silver and antique black too!
Tufted baskets are perfect to hold pillows, throw blankets, and all the random things you might find around your living room or bedroom. And they’re seriously pretty.
Since Amy spotted this personalized door mat on Shutterfly, we’ve all been dying to get our own. Such a simple (and totally functional) way to upgrade your space.
Throwing a couple of outdoor pillows on your deck or pool chairs adds allll the comfort you didn’t know you needed for some relaxed summer lounging. Oh, as well as throw blankets. They add so much to any space, so go crazy.
One of the easiest ways to add some spunk and life (literally) to your space? Plants. In pretty little planters and pots. Done. I have this Grecian Bust Pot, and it added exactly what my home needed.
Whether it’s string lights, lanterns or even bug lights (life-changing), outdoor lighting adds such a hygge ambiance to outside gatherings that create the coziest vibes.
Chilewich rugs are some of the best, especially these striped indoor/outdoor rugs. Timeless.
