What better way to spend a post-holiday Monday than online shopping? A number of sites offer discounts—or at least free shipping—through midnight today. We’ve collected a few of our favorites for cooking and entertaining, so you can finally snag that KitchenAid stand mixer or set of vintage cocktail glasses at a discount.

You’ll have to sign up for a free membership to access this site, but the collection of mostly small-batch spirits is worth it. All are priced below retail value, so you’ll save on that bottle of Ardbeg single-malt for the boss.
The deal: Spirits are offered below retail price normally, plus free shipping today for orders over $100.

Chef’s resource
“Tools for the serious chef” is the tagline of this online retailer, and you’ll find the accessories at a pretty steep discount today. We like the looks of an All Clad three-quart sauté pan, Le Creuset stock pot, and Chantal fondue set.
The deal: Varies by item.

In the market for fresh truffles, caviar, or a charcuterie gift basket? You’ll find all of the above and more from this fine-foods purveyor, including a free-range goose for a Christmas roast.
The deal: Use the promo code SAVEMORE at checkout for up to 20 percent off. 

Epicurious Shop
Epicurious isn’t just for recipes and helpful/amusing reviews. The online shop includes an array of cooking tools and pantry items; you’ll find cyber specials on KitchenAid stand mixers, Riedel glassware, Calphalon pans, and more.
The deal: Varies by item.

This online retailer specializes in homey items; Rachael Ray and the Cake Boss are among the affiliated brands. Shop for the likes of retro Looney Tunes pint glasses, deep fryers, and decorative aprons.
The deal: Save up to 70 percent through December 3. 

Jayson Home
If you’re more of an entertainer than a home cook, you’ll love the various tabletop finds on this site—think vintage bamboo trays, antique silver barware, and various glass cloches.
The deal: Sadly no steep discounts, but you’ll receive a gift and free shipping on every order.

Ask a chef where to buy a great knife, and chances are Korin will top the list. Browse the gorgeous Western-style and traditional Japanese knives, including gift-friendly utility blades and all-out splurges. (Wish-listed: a $5,175 tuna knife for celebratory carving rituals.)
The deal: The holiday knife sale last through December, with 15 percent off blades. 

Provisions by Food 52
We love this James Beard Award-winning publication’s website, which recently launched an online kitchen-and-home shop. You’ll find everything from vintage copper cookware to spice sets, barware (a Mason jar shaker, anyone?), and more. 
The deal: Free shipping and a gift for any order over $75. 

Sur La Table
This national retailer offers a range of deep discounts, including marked-down Wusthof knife sets, All-Clad slow cookers, and Starbucks espresso makers.
The deal: Up to 70 percent off certain items, and free shipping on all orders over $59. 

Get a taste of New York with a variety of edibles from this Upper West Side institution. Gift baskets are a top options for the holidays, filled with the likes of smoked fish and bagels, kosher pastries, or Zabar’s brand coffees.
