Nordstrom is one of our favorite places to shop. You can find gifts for everyone on your list at this high-end department store, from your mother who claims she doesn’t want anything to your grandmother who just really wants to stop receiving robes.
Nordstrom has an impressive inventory of goods for everyone, and thankfully, you can get free shipping until December 22. Plus, if you buy online and pickup in store, you can get your gifts even quicker. That’s right—you still have several days of online shopping left, so take advantage of this great perk and check out these amazing last-minute gifts you can still get at Nordstrom.
1. For the one who needs a better office sweater: Barefoot dreams Cardigan
This gorgeous sweater has nearly 2,500 5-star reviews on Nordstrom’s site, with people describing it as incredibly cozy and soft. Our audience director owns this cardigan and describes it as essentially “a comfortable blanket disguised as clothing.” Bonus: it’s currently 25% off at Nordstrom.
2. For the one with the Mary Poppins bag: Madewell Zip Top Transport Tote
Some women love tiny purses and others love massive totes. For those who enjoy carrying everything from books to lunch bags in their purses, this Madewell tote is a must-own and a happy medium. This bag comes with a zip-top, making it perfect for commuting and traveling. Plus, it’s stylish enough for bringing to work and carrying around during the weekends.
3. For the one who’s into skincare: La Mer Moisturizing Cream
This moisturizing cream is more expensive than many other ones we love, but you’re getting every ounce you pay for with this product. It targets dry areas to hydrate and repair skin, leaving users with silky smooth skin.
4. For the one who values comfort: The cloud-like Wubby
It’s hard to look at the Wubby and avoid hitting “add to cart” immediately. This fluffy sweater has a cult following, with people describing it as incredibly cuddly and warm. You can get it for 35% off right now, which is perfect since you’ll end up buying one for everyone left on your list.
5. For the proud couch potato: This amazing throw blanket
This incredible blanket from Kennebunk has a nearly perfect rating at Nordstrom, and right now, you can get it for under $30. It comes in 10 colors and it’s about 4’ by 5’, meaning it can match just about any living room set. Reviewers describe it as soft, cozy, and easy to wash—can you think of any other way to describe the perfect blanket?
6. For the aspiring hair artist: This amazing curling iron
The Beachwaver curling iron is impressive—it automatically rotates as you curl your hair, allowing you to achieve a salon-worthy blowout without doing too much work. While the Beachwaver S1 curling iron is the best curling iron we’ve ever tested, this model at Nordstrom comes with a few more features than the S1 model, including a longer rod and power cord, as well as an LED digital temperature control and no-kink clamps.
7. For your stylish friend: The cult-favorite faux leather Spanx leggings
These Spanx faux leather leggings have a massive following on Nordstrom and we are just as obsessed. When we tested them, we found that they live up to the buzz. Our editor said they were comfy, stylish, and affordable. She also recommends ordering a size up, as they can run small.
8. For the one who lives in socks during the winter: UGG Pom Pom Fleece Socks
Every year, my mother fills my stocking with Rolos, Sudoku books, and fleece socks. This pair from UGG would make an incredible addition to my collection (yes, that’s a hint). They come in seven amazing colors and feature adorable pom poms that dangle from the rim. Reviewers describe them as thick like slipper socks and incredibly cozy on their feet.
9. For the frequent flyer: Herschel Duffle Bag
Herschel makes high-quality bags built to last—my husband swears by his Herschel backpack, so it’s no surprise this duffle bag is highly rated at Nordstrom. It’s large enough to pack for a weekend trip, but stylish enough to bring to work as a gym bag. Plus, it comes with compartments specifically made for shoes, meaning your giftee can keep his luggage items separate.
10. For the one who hates winter: A large comfy sweater
There’s nothing better than an oversized sweater when it comes to layering up and pretending winter doesn’t exist. This one is popular among Nordstrom shoppers—it’s made from acrylic, so it’s very soft, while the oversized fabric gives it a chic and slouchy vibe. Reviewers say this sweater is large, but it looks great with leggings.
11. For the one whose slippers have holes: UGG Slippers
You can’t go wrong when gifting slippers, and this pair from UGG doesn’t disappoint. They’re perfect houseshoes for just about anyone on your list, from grandma to your sister. They come in two different colors and have nearly 1,000 5-star reviews. Plus, the robber sole makes them perfect for wearing inside or outside, meaning your giftee can even wear them to run errands.
12. For the man who has everything: Flannel pajamas
Pajamas are meant to be cozy, so it’s a good thing these flannel pajamas from Nordstrom are made from 100% cotton and described as “perfect” by many reviewers. They come with pajama pants and a button-up top with a collar. These pajamas also come in four amazing patterns, so you can pick up a pair for several of the men on your list.
13. For the one who needs more candles: Capri Blue Jar Candle
Can you ever own too many candles? The answer is no—for both you and everyone on your list. Pick up this cult-favorite candle from Anthropologie, the Capri Blue Jar Candle, which comes in a variety of scents ideal for most tastes. This particular candle smells like sweet orange, lemon mist, and gardenia, perfect for the one on your list who loves citrus and floral.
14. For the jewelry lover: Sophia drop earrings
These classy earrings make a stunning gift for the elegant jewelry fan on your list. They come in three styles—gold, rose gold, and silver—and have a 5-star rating from more than 700 reviews. Their simple design means they’ll match nearly any outfit and jewelry your giftee already owns, while their hefty size makes them stand out when worn with an updo or loose curls.
15. For the one who listens to music on the go: Bose SoundLink speaker
The Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker is among the best portable Bluetooth speakers we’ve ever tested. It’s more expensive than other options on our roundup, but it’s durable, long-lasting, and delivers near-perfect audio quality regardless of your location. It comes in three colors, so pick the shade that most matches your giftee’s style.
16. For the one who you’re stumped about: A cashmere scarf
This cashmere scarf is one of the only things I’ve kept in my wardrobe from my college days, and it still feels as soft as it did nine years ago. You can wrap and wear it as a scarf, tie the ends to turn it into an infinity scarf, or put it around your shoulders to wear as an elegant wrap for formal occasions. Either way, your giftee will enjoy the soft feel of this scarf as they wear it on a near-daily basis.
