There’s nothing more stressful than realizing in the middle of November that there are only a few weeks left to get everyone on your wish list the perfect gift for the holidays. It’s not that they put pressure on you, but when you have someone in your life who has given you so much, it is never possible to find something worthy for them not one and a half tasks. Luckily, many stores have started creating their own gift guides that can serve as inspiration for some ideas, and the one we’re currently browsing is the one from Nordstrom.
We love Nordies for finding luxurious yet affordable beauty and fashion items, and the store’s holiday gift guide is full of them – more than 1,300 goodies are curated in this range, and we’ve checked out every single one of them. What? We had the time.
Here you’ll find beauty essentials, celebrity-loved clothing and accessories from the range. While all we could do was point you to the website, we wanted to make things a little easier by narrowing down the best tips. These include a pair of puffy and comfy slides from Tory Burch that will keep you comfortable on vacation or on walks, a La Perla fragrance set that anyone with a nose will appreciate, and ultra-soft casual wear from none other than the celeb-lover Barefoot Dreams.
The best part is that Nordstrom makes navigating the entire catalog super easy—all offerings are divided into different sections, from Advent calendars to gifts for him and her.
Check out our top picks from Nordstrom’s holiday gift guide below.

For the fashion lover
Any jewelry lover will appreciate these interlocking stud earrings from Gucci featuring the brand’s iconic logo design.
Tory Burch’s classic T-sandal has received a slight makeover. These colorful mules still feature the famous logo, but have a more casual feel thanks to their relaxed style. Buy the yellow pair and give your friends something that’s just as bright and eye-catching as they are.
I would be shocked if there was a more comfortable item of clothing. Everywhere. You may have heard of Barefoot Dreams because they’re the brand that makes these Oprah-approved blankets that are extra cozy. The same goes for this cardigan, which can be combined with sweats or trousers to suit any occasion.
You can’t go wrong with a classic pair of Ray-Bans. They’re stylish, good quality, and have celebrity approval that everyone probably loves (cough, Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston).
For the child in the heart
You might think of Nordstrom as a hub for beauty, home, and fashion items, but the retailer also carries toy-filled Advent calendars full of fun surprises. Grab this 2023 LEGO City Advent Calendar for the nephew, niece or uncle (no judgment here) in your life.
You’ve heard of Girl Dads, how about Boy Moms? If you’re looking for gifts for your mom, check out this adorable bracelet that she won’t want to take off. It’s only $25 and is as sentimental as it gets.
Never thought it would be possible to make your own nail polish? Think again. This kit contains everything kids (or adults looking for a fun night out) need to make four water-based nail polishes that wash off with warm, soapy water.
For the traveler
Give your loved ones who are always on the go the Beis The Weekend Travel Bag, a practical travel bag with a removable shoulder strap, padded laptop compartment and travel-friendly trolley bag.
This super soft fleece sleep mask is designed to relieve stress and anxiety whether you’re at home or flying to distant lands.
These Reese Witherspoon-approved running shoes stay on pace for walks, runs, and everything in between. They feature incredible padding and come in adorable colors that ensure it looks stylish.
Grace 27 ounce foam roller water bottle
Get your fit friend or family member the two-in-one essential she’ll use again and again. It’s a combination foam roller and water bottle – an ingenious invention that we never knew was so necessary. It helps maintain the recipient’s fluid balance and relieves pain caused by going to the gym.
For the gourmet
SMEG Retro 50s coffee grinder
Chances are you’ve never seen a better looking coffee grinder than this one. The SMEG Retro ’50s Coffee Grinder is a sight to behold – something beautiful to add to your countertop and a chance to buy all the different coffee beans you’ve always wanted to try. Even self-proclaimed coffee snobs say the “exact amount of coffee” is ground.
Anyone who loves hosting dinner parties needs a Vinglace wine and champagne cooler. The vacuum-insulated stainless steel container keeps wine cool for hours.
