Thank you to Nordstrom Rack and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post.

There’s not much more I love in the world than gift giving. It’s definitely one of my love languages, along with quality time. And I’m a firm believer in giving the perfect gift any time of the year (even for no reason at all), but the holidays make gift giving extra fun and sparkly, yeah?

My goal this year is to not stress over the gift giving part, instead just to ease into it. I’d like to spend some quality time browsing, and not worry about how many gifts or how big the gift, but rather how thoughtful. I’ve always valued intentional, thoughtful gifts, but after the past two years I do so even more. I’ll bet I’m not alone.

Found: Thoughtful Gifts For Everyone On My List

We love Nordstrom Rack for the affordable fashion finds, but it turns out that they’re also a really great place to find gifts. When looking for thoughtful gifts, I often start with ones that are practical, too, like luxe beauty sets, cozy home pieces, or fun gadgets and tech. And I’ve noticed that Nordstrom Rack is constantly updating their selections with new picks, so it’s worth checking often. Here are a few of my top gifts from Nordstrom Rack (including a really fun gift that I’m gifting myself).

1. Gift Something Cozy

Cozy pieces are so easy to gift every year; they’re always welcomed with open arms. This throw is beautifully soft, and there are so many other lovely pieces at Nordstrom Rack (oooh, like these sherpa mittens!). From fuzzy throws and slippers, to other winter accessories (hats, scarves, mittens), anything in this cozy category makes a really great gift.

2. The Gift Of Luxe Beauty

What’s more fun than pretty, holiday-themed beauty sets? Very little, my friends. This Clinique Lipstick set comes in the perfect tin (you don’t even need wrapping paper) and has really wearable shades in it (click here to see.)

Ooh…and these are all of our FAV eye shadow sticks, in a cute set of three. Hey-o. Oh AND this Too Faced shadow palette set with their famous mascara! I could go on and on…

3. Home: A Reliable Gifting Category

Home is a gifting category I always rely on for friends and fam year after year. High-quality candles are never a bad idea. I love receiving them and burn them not only for their lovely scents but for the atmosphere it adds to our house, too.

Birch & Sage Candle

Homesick Candles have been my favorites for a couple of years now because they not only smell amazing but they can also be personalized with your receiver’s home state or city or favorite holiday or locale. This Winter Mantle candle smells like a fresh forest on a snowy day. So good.

4. Tech Gifts

For teens, for hard-to-buy-for dudes, for dad, for brother, for the person who buys themselves everything…tech gifts can cover a lot of territory when it comes to your holiday list. Everybody always needs a new cute phone charger cord or an upgrade to their nightstand situation. And this whole line of accessories from Soar, surprisingly made from wheat fiber, is blowing my mind.

This little bluetooth speaker is the perfect size and price for making a great gift. We constantly use a bluetooth speaker in our backyard, at vacation rentals, at the river, for picnics, etc., Actually a little picnic-inspired collection where you include this would be a really great gift! You could also include this blanket and this cutting board. They’d be perfect for newlyweds, college grads, moms, foodies…I think I just checked off some on my own list!

5. Kitchen Gadgets To Gift

This Tzumi Ceramic Warming Mug is a fab gift for anyone who, like me, loses their coffee in the microwave multiple times a day or hates when their tea gets cold so quickly. I much prefer drinking out of ceramic than any other material because it doesn’t change the flavor of the drink at all. The warming plate automatically shuts off when your cup isn’t sitting on it, making it safer than the old-school mug warmers. And it keeps your drink nice and hot!

I’ve rounded up more fun pieces below for the foodie or gadget-lover in your life. That mini 2-cup rice cooker though? Stahp. What a perfect thing for the office, dorm room or studio apartment.

Here’s to gifting, my friends, and doing so with a fun spirit and thoughtfulness and perhaps a side of whimsy…
