How can you go wrong shopping at Nordstrom for Christmas? Even when you’re shopping for the pickiest people on your list, you’re sure to find something they’ll love at Nordstrom. I’ve rounded up my favorite Nordstrom gift ideas for her.
The Madewell Whisper Cotton V-Neck Pocket Tee. This pocket t-shirt is such a classic staple piece that you’ll find yourself reaching for all the time. It’s so comfortable and extremely versatile. You can layer it (or not!) and dress it up or down for errands, work, girls’ night, etc. This shirt is such a fantastic value for the price point. It runs huge, so if you’re on the fence about the size, go down one size.
Madewell Ballet Wrap Top. Wrap tops are so hit or miss. I love the notion of the wrap top or wrap dress. But a lot of them aren’t executed very well, which makes for awkward fits. Madewell gets it just right with this wrap top. The construction is straightforward, and the wrap is snug and flattering.
Halogen Crewneck Cashmere Sweater. Nothing says luxurious Christmas gift quite like cashmere. Cashmere is an investment. As such, you want to choose classic cashmere pieces that will hold up well and not go out of style over a number of years. The crewneck design is timeless. I love the range of colors for the Halogen piece, too.
Caslon Floral Print Sweatshirt. I am a big fan of the floral print sweatshirt trend. Bright flowers provide a welcome pop of color during the coldest, darkest months of the year. I love the periwinkle background shade and vintage-inspired floral print here.
KUT from the Kloth Diana Stretch Corduroy Skinny Pants. I feel like I’m in the minority here, but I love to add corduroy pants into the jeans rotation during winter for a little variation. It’s not a secret that I am not crazy about the skinny jean trend (bit of an understatement). But skinny cords work well with boots. I love this classic design and the range of neutrals offered.
Thread & Supply Double Breasted Peacoat. The Thread & Supply Peacoat is the best peacoat I’ve ever owned. I’m still in shock at the price point. It’s worth the full price number and is an absolute steal at the sale price. The coat is high-quality and so comfortable. You can turn up the collar and button it all the way up or easily layer a scarf with it with the collar turned down when it’s really cold.
Maralyn & Me Shiny Crop Puffer Jacket. The crop puffer jacket is the ideal combination of bomber jacket and parka. It’s as warm as any cropped parka but a little more stylish. Depending on where you live, you may want something heavier in the winter. But it’ll get you through the majority of the fall and spring.
Steve Madden Dina Sandal. Steve Madden footwear is the best. They always offer the perfect mix of comfort and style. The Dina sandal is no exception. It’s so hard to find sandals that look this nice that don’t kill your feet. I love that it comes in a range of neutrals as well as a metallic: rose gold (so pretty). If you’re looking for a sandal with a block heel (as opposed to a flat sandal), I love the April and Irenee styles, too.
Hunter Original Tall Rain Boot. Hunter boots aren’t a unique gift idea at all, I know. But sometimes you have to go with the tried and true picks. There’s a reason that Hunter boots remain so popular. Nordstrom offers a great selection of them. Hunter boots run huge, so order down one size from your regular size.
Frye ‘Harness 12R’ Leather Boots. Frye boots are one of the total splurge items on this list. If you want to wow the woman in your life with something that she’s never going to spend on for herself, go for the Frye boots. The style here is killer. The block heel, square toe, and buckle detail all in one boot is to die for. And the height is shorter than most tall boots, which is a nice variation for your boot collection. (They’re also available in brown!)
Nordstrom Butter Slipper Socks. Fuzzy socks are one of the best parts about winter. Butter socks are some of the softest socks I’ve ever felt in my life. Layer them with tights for chilly days outdoors or slip them on after work or on lazy weekend mornings for the ultimate comfort.
Moonlight Pajamas. Every woman deserves to have at least one pair of really nice pajamas. Most likely I would gift the pants/long-sleeve set for Christmas. But these pajamas are available in a shorts/short-sleeve style as well.
Kendra Scott Elisa Birthstone Pendant Necklace. As much as I love bold colorful jewelry (just check out my Etsy jewelry shop), I also love simple, understated jewelry, especially necklaces. Kendra Scott offers classic women’s jewelry style at its best, and this birthstone pendant necklace is no exception. It’s also available as a bracelet!
Kate Spade New York One in a Million Initial Pendant Necklace. I had to include one more simple, timeless necklace option in this gift guide. I’ve linked silver here, which I know will be more popular. But it also comes in gold.
Urban Decay Naked2 Palette. Urban Decay offers exactly what you want in an eyeshadow palette but so rarely get. The range of colors is fabulous, with tons of shades you’ll actually use instead of just a couple. And they’re so easy to blend, again a feature you just don’t get with cheaper palettes. Naked2 is very similar to my all-time favorite from Urban Decay, the now discontinued smoky palette. If you’re shopping for a super basic makeup gal, consider the Naked2 Basics Palette instead.
Kopari Coconut Crush Scrub. The Kopari scrub is the best sugar scrub I’ve ever used, hands down. It’s pricy but well worth the money, as one container will easily last you all year. The coconut smell is so nice, too, and not overly sweet. If sugar scrubs aren’t your thing, check out the other items in the Kopari line.
Kennebunk Bliss Plush Throw. The Cozy Chic throws and other high-end blankets that Nordstrom offers are amazing. But I just can’t justify that price point, especially with multiple pets and a toddler. The Kennebunk Bliss is still super soft. It’s also under $50 and is machine washable, making it the winner for the gift guide.
La Tinta Set of 3 Journals. While not an expensive gift, a beautiful journal set is another item I am not likely to splurge on for myself but would love to receive. I like the flatlay construction and the colorful designs.
