2018 Nordstrom Holiday Gift Guide

Soho, NY

I did a fun holiday themed Q+A on Stories yesterday and someone asked me – “Which website do you shop the most for gifts?”  Without a doubt – that website is Nordstrom.  First because they have THE BEST selection of clothing, shoes, bags, accessories, home decor items, and beauty goodies for men, women, and children. Second their site is so beautifully laid out which makes it oh-so pleasant to shop on, and third they have impeccable customer service.  I am always able to find exactly what I’m looking for – and more when I’m on it.

Today, I wanted to share what gifts I’ll be buying for my girlfriends, sister, and mom from Nordstrom, and of course what I will be buying for MYSELF!  Everyone says I am hard to shop for because of my line of work, but honestly, the simplest gifts make me the happiest!!!  I think the key is not to overthink a gift.  There are SO many choices and it can feel quite overwhelming during the holidays, but something like a beautiful candle, a stunning coffee table book, a cozy cashmere scarf, or a great pair of slippers are truly perfect gifts that anyone will appreciate!  I mean, what woman doesn’t LOVE a Diptqyue candle?!  It’s little luxuries like that, that she may not buy for herself or splurge on, which make them the ultimate gift/surprise/treat!!!!

OK so without further ado…here are my absolute favorite gifts for her from Nordstrom in all price ranges!
