Happy Holidays, you guys!!! In honor of the season, Nordstorm asked me if I’d share my favorite gifts for the holidays. So I did: I rounded up the best, most foolproof gifts for girls, guys and kids. Not only is Nordstrom’s selection totally and completely amazing….but their shipping is fast, free, and their return policy unparalleled.
So yeah: these gifts are good. And coupled with Nordstrom’s return policy…
Totally and completely foolproof.
I’m beyond excited to share this list with you guys – it’s been a ton of work but it’s a fun one, and (hopefully) has something for everyone. Enjoy!!
On me (shana):
Starting With Some Solidly Good Gifts…
If you haven’t checked out Nordstrom’s Holiday Gifts section, prepare to be wowed. I thought I’d kick off this giant gift guide with a few quirky, fun gifts for everyone. The kind of stuff you didn’t realize you needed…until it’s actually in your hands.
There’s really nothing better than a cashmere sweater – cozy, cute, amazing drape, aaaaand…machine washable. I throw mine into a garment bag and wash on cold, then lay flat….or flatish to dry. Or hang, sometimes, if I can’t find the space. But the point is that these things last. And once December rolls around, it’s pretty much the only thing I wear (over and over and over again).
Who wouldn’t love to open up a super cozy pair of slippers? NO ONE. Especially if they’re UGGs. I keep trying other brands but I ultimately end up disappointed. UGGs makes the best slippers.
Cute & Cozy Winter Accessories
There’s something so fun about opening up a new set of matching (or perfectly un-matching) hats and mitts. Personally, I like mine a little on the crazy side – it helps to break up the sea of black coats in the winter.
On me (shana):
My friend refers to this type of jewelry as ‘date-night jewels’. I get it – there’s something very romantic about a little box with something sparkly inside.
The easiest way for a guy to make his basic go-to pieces more interesting is to personalize them with a cool watch, and some man-jewelry. I think leather bracelets are especially sexy (and comfortable to wear).
Know why an evening bag makes a great gift? Because the good ones – the really exciting, SWOON-worthy ones, are always a liiiitle bit pricier than anyone wants to spend on an evening bag. Which makes recieving one truly a gift. (Thanks TME team – I LOVE mine. xo)
These bags can all carry laptops (or diapers), and are professional enough to be used in the office, but cool enough for the weekends, too.
I love gifting my fav beauty items to girlfriends (who doesn’t love to try something new??), or finding them in my stocking. But there are also a few gift ideas so good, they can easily take center stage.
lipstick: Urban Decay in Bang
Tech and Travel Accessories
If you are looking for a gift that really will get used on the regular, try a tech gift. (I’m partial to tech gifts that are both beautiful and practical.)
Saved the best (and most fun) for last.
Happy, happy, happy holidays.
