All of the big houses — Amazon, Best Buy, even Game Stop — have major, splashy Cyber Monday deals which, in many cases, they’re not announcing till just before the big day, because they’re that important. But there are plenty of smaller (and not so small) places that have wondrous sales going for the day when you can save big without getting out of your PJs. Consider these:

Beards are gross

A few years ago, an evil neologism entered the lexicon: “manscaping.” Please ignore that — but maintaining (and preferably losing) your facial hair is nothing to sneeze at. Pick up some gear at The Art of Shaving, including blades and cream to get that baby face while avoiding shameful spotty stubble.

Go to TheArtofShaving.com for $25 off $125 or more

Animal house

Pet owners tend to anthropomorphize the animals they’ve imprisoned and trained to be their friends. But if you’re going to do that, you might as well treat them right. At LazyBonezz, one can find that ridiculously comfy bed your animal deserves for putting up with your habitual neglect.

Go to www.lazybonezz.com for 70% off site-wide

Add to the girth

You’re fat and you’re going to get fatter this season, thanks to the holidays and your irrational fear of debilitating cold and wind. So own it. Or force others to own it. Gift boxes and boxes at Godiva are 40% off Monday, so feel free to think of others or just yourself.

Feel good about snacking

Our favorite to-go snacks are out to save the world — while getting you better treats. For Cyber Monday and #GivingTuesday, KIND will offer $10 off its KIND Healthy Indulgence Cube, a box of 20 bars that normally retails for $42.95. At the same time, the company will donate 12 pounds of food to City Harvest for every cube purchased. The act helps feed 12 people for one full day. Talk about guilt-free indulging.

To redeem the deal, enter the promo code “GIVE” when you checkout at www.kindsnacks.com

Hello nurse!

So there’s this: If you are one of the 50 people who buy lingerie from AdoreMe, your order will be delivered in person by a “hot male model.”
