Gifting might be my very favorite shopping sport. There’s something just so fun about giving people you love something they’ll love or even just something that makes them feel loved. Whether it’s for no reason (which is my favorite reason), housewarming, holidays, birthdays, weddings, showers of life celebrations or any other day of the week! Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You all know we’re kinda into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, right?
My own kids have totally outgrown these given that they are all gaining on being as tall as Shana Auntie…but, oh my goodness, was there nothing so cute as a freshly bathed, yummy-smelling baby child wrapped in a fun animal-faced hooded towel!!! Those were the days! So for those Mamas and Bebes that are looking forward to that bathtime fun, these are such a wonderful gift; I promise, they will bring joy again and again.
OMG. My crazy Editor-in-Chief just totally flagged me and said that backpack is not Anni Sale; because she has the whole dang sale memorized. Goodness. OK. Fine. It’s not. BUT…it is 50% off in Magenta, as pictured, which is better than Anni, so there. Mom’s need backpacks. They need free hands. It’s a simple truth. They might not know it yet, so get your favorite soon-to-be-mom or new mom all geared-up well with the TME team FAV in a Fabulous color!
A really sweet baby blanket because it’s just so soft and cuddly and who could ask for more??? My kids went from babies in these, to toddlers, to kids with lap blankets, to never wanting to give them up or pass them on and so we keep them, forever, with love.
These are just gorgeous. Flat out gorgeous. And I love making sets of gifts and this is a great starter. Wrap it, and gift it with the dome and one of the two boards below, and if possible, maybe even put them, the cheese and wrap it right in there? Any one of the 4 pieces is a beautiful gift on its own, but put them all together and I’m just in love with this gift.
The two-tone and personalization really make this special!
Sometimes the simple things are the largest luxuries.
For cheese, tarts, chocolates, any special treat. This is a really beautiful gift, especially when personalized!
Truth: we don’t often buy ourselves engraved frames, but we all love having them in a special place on a special shelf, with a special photo memory.
Father’s day, Birthday, Holidays, Groom Gift, Groom’s Men’s Gift, or for the woman who loves a men’s style shirt with cuffs. Simple, beautiful, and personal. These are just a classic, stylish, and wonderful gift!
Same gift list as above, especially if you add a really special bottle of what fills it!
Sublime. Sometimes it’s the simplest cleanest things that are the most beautiful. The gifts I’ve received my lifetime like this…classic…clean-lined…multi-purpose…and just beautiful that I just LOVE so much!!!
So here’s the total absolute beautiful SPLURGE gift! This would have to be a gift to justify its tag, but hey…you can always gift yourself, right??? Missoni, you have my heart, always. Let’s call it an investment piece? A lifetime piece? A forever piece. Whatever it takes.
My favorite candles of all time. I stock up any time they are on sale, which is not often. So now. Stock-up and then gift them as house warming gifts? I always love a candle as a sweet house-warming or host/hostess gift! Or life strategy: gift 3, keep 2…just saying. xoxo
If you know of a home that doesn’t have this, then it needs it and is a fantastic gift!
I travel. I have 3 children. They have more reward miles than many adults will in a lifetime. A bag like this is a lifesaver when traveling for a weekend solo, as it’s all you need. And it’s also the best thing ever when traveling with kids. It’s lightweight, and unlike the LC one that I carry everywhere, it has that magic shoulder strap that I always wish mine did and would totally wear messenger-bag/crossbody style; and which, also lays nicely over a stroller if that’s where you are. Important bag for mom’s that travel survival, trust me. Also, a super-sweet gift for couples, each with their own initials.
Bluetooth speakers and anything BOSE are just fantastic gifts. Let the dance party begin!
I hope life brings you all sorts of wonderful things to celebrate this year! xoxo A
