There’s a special lull that happens every season between Christmas and New Year’s Eve. For the tiresome host, it’s a time to pause, recharge, and clean up. For the dedicated shopper, however, this brief holiday hiatus is the ultimate sweet spot. With Nordstrom’s Half Yearly sale already in full swing and countless other retailers celebrating with post-holiday discounts, there’s no better time to score big on your favorite brands than in the days leading up to January 1. Adding their markdowns to the mix is Zara Home.

From now until the fashion-forward brand reaches the end of its stock, customers can snag bedding, bath accessories, kitchenware, and more for way less. While the deals vary, we know that there’s nothing more exciting than snagging luxe-looking home decor for at least half-off. That’s why we scoured the sale rack for the best items that are 50 percent off. Shop our serious savings edit below.
