The holidays are coming up fast, and if you’re finishing up your holiday shopping (or, ahem, just starting it), you should definitely head to Nordstrom to find those last few gifts. No matter who you’re shopping for—a partner, parent, sibling, coworker, or even a Secret Santa exchange—there are plenty of luxurious yet affordable gifts to be found at Nordstrom. The following our some of our top picks for last-minute presents under $50.
1. An amazingly warm and cozy women’s pullover
It can be tricky to shop for women’s clothing, but I can pretty much promise any woman in your life will enjoy this sweater. The fleece hoodie is super soft and cozy with a quarter-zip closure and kangaroo pocket. It comes in three colors and is basically the ultimate sweater for cozying up on a snow day.
2. A plush throw blanket that’s equal parts warm and stylish
A warm throw blanket is another winter essential, and this plush product fits the bill. The polyester blanket comes in nine colors and has a soft, velvet-like finish that’s incredibly cozy. In fact, this throw is so nice that you might be tempted to get one for yourself, too!
3. A pair of sweet Vans
A new pair of Vans is always a safe gift, and we love the sleek, classic look of these sneakers. They come in two patterns, both of which look very 90s (which is super hip right now). They would make a thoughtful gift for any man in your life.
4. A sturdy water bottle to take everywhere
The Hydro Flask Water Bottle is one of the best water bottles you can buy, and it would be a useful gift for anyone who likes adventuring outdoors. The sturdy bottle is made from recycled materials, comes with a lifetime guarantee, and can keep water cold for more than 24 hours. What’s not to love?
5. Cozy socks to use as a stocking stuffer
I don’t know about you, but I live in thick, fuzzy socks during the winter. After all, who wants cold toes? These UGG Pom Pom Socks would be a welcome gift thanks to their cable-knit design and fleece-lined interior. Plus, they come in a number of pretty colors and feature fun pom poms on the edges.
6. A sleek golden set of bar tools
Anyone who has a home bar or who just loves a good cocktail will appreciate this five-piece bar tool set. It comes with four tools, including a strainer, spoon, measuring jig, and bottle opener, as well as a sturdy base where you can hang all the pieces. Plus, the classy gold finish adds a touch of elegance to any room.
7. A beard grooming set for the bearded gents in your life
Keeping a beard trimmed and lush is harder than it seems, which is why anyone who takes pride in their facial hair will love getting this grooming kit as a present. The set includes beard wash, beard lube conditioning shave, beard oil, and a beard comb, all of which are paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free.
8. A collection of men’s skincare products
Men need skincare products, too, and this collection of Kiehl’s Facial Favorites includes three essential products for healthy, happy skin. It comes with the brand’s Facial Fuel Energizing Face Wash gel cleanser, Facial Fuel Energizing Moisture Treatment lotion, and a full-size Facial Fuel Eye Fuel eye cream. Plus, all the products are in travel-friendly sizes, so they’re ideal for someone who’s always on the road.
9. A pair of stunning cubic zirconia studs
You can wow the woman in your life with these gorgeous stud earrings. The cubic zirconia jewels are one carat each and secured in triple-prong settings. The studs are a timeless style that every woman needs, and they come in a pretty gift box, to boot.
10. A stylish, thick blanket scarf
If anyone I know is reading this, please get me this scarf for the holidays. The thick, stylish blanket scarf is by the popular brand Free People, and it has a plush ribbed finish that adds interest to any outfit. The scarf comes in five neutral colors, and it’s the ultimate cold weather accessory for anyone who lives in a cold climate.
11. A collection of popular lip products
The cosmetic brand Fresh is known for its lip scrubs and balms, and you can give your makeup-loving friend an amazing array of lip-care products with this lip treatment set. The limited-edition bundle includes a travel-sized tube of Sugar Lip Treatment Advanced Therapy and five Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment balms in the colors Coral, Rosé, Petal, Tulip and Punch. Plus, the whole bundle comes in an adorable holiday-themed package!
12. A compact travel bag for men
Do you know someone who simply throws all his toiletries into a plastic bag when traveling? Upgrade his style this holiday season with this compact travel bag from Herschel Supply Co. The bag is made from durable canvas and sports a waterproof zipper, and it has both exterior and interior pockets to keep him organized.
13. A beautiful wine rack for your favorite wine lover
For the person who always has a stash of wine bottles in their cabinet or fridge, this sleek wine rack would make a thoughtful present. The countertop rack has slots of up to six bottles of wine, and it has a trendy brushed gold finish that will add a touch of elegance to any kitchen or dining room.
14. A set of essential shoe care products
Nothing can ruin a great outfit quite as fast as scuffed, dirty shoes, which is why everyone should own at least a few shoe-cleaning supplies. Luckily, this shoe care gift set includes all the essentials to keep anyone’s shoe collection in tip-top shape: a hog-hair brush, cleaning foam, water-repellent spray, and quick wipes.
15. A luscious eyeshadow palette that smells like hot buttered rum
Too Faced is known for its scented eyeshadow palettes, and this limited edition Hot Buttered Rum palette would be a perfect holiday gift for anyone who loves makeup. It includes eight richly colored, copper-toned shades, and the silky-smooth formula is ideal for blending. Plus, it smells like buttered rum!
16. These chic fuzzy platform slippers
These are amazing. Any fashionista will love the Steve Madden Fabfuzz Platform Slippers, which are equal parts comfy and stylish. There are four colors available, including leopard print and tie dye, and the slippers will make your recipient feel like a ‘90s icon every time they wear them.
17. A set of pretty packing cubes for your favorite jet setter
Every traveler needs a set of packing cubes to streamline their pre-trip prep, and this five-piece set is a favorite among buyers thanks to its smart design. The set includes two small cubes, a medium cube, a large cube, and a water-resistant pouch for transporting wet items. Each piece has an ID window where you can place your contact information, and the breathable mesh front lets you easily identify what's inside each cube.
18. A pair of cozy, functional gloves that work with your phone
It’s quite frustrating when you have to remove your gloves to use your phone, which is why these Apex Gloves from North Face are so ingenious. The tips of the fingers are touchscreen-compatible, letting you use electronics without exposing your hands to the cold, and the gloves themselves are made from four-way-stretch fleece that will keep your recipient warm without restricting their motion.
