If you still haven’t finished your holiday shopping, we’re willing to bet you fall in one of three categories. Perhaps you’re the last-minute shopper who lives for the thrill of the 11th-hour find. Or maybe you’re someone who’s burdened with a too-long list populated by folks you don’t even know that well—which can be paralyzing. Last, you might be that hopeful holiday spirit who believes your hard-to-please recipients will, in the next day or so, express a clear wish so you can click and buy just what they want.
In any case, it’s time to change your tactic. The clock is running out. While we can’t reform your gift-buying tendencies permanently, we can help you wrap things up for 2019. Thanks to a bit of Nordstrom magic (and a few spilled insider secrets) we have the list for gifts that are not only the most popular at the retailer, but are also surprising, charming, delightful—and just the answer to your present-tense challenges.
Want to make sure you receive your gift by Christmas Eve? Ensure free guaranteed delivery by December 24 as long as you order before December 22.
See below for the best-sellers you need to pick up at Nordstrom.
No one ever asks for a throw for the holidays, yet the right one becomes one of their favorite and most depended upon items of the year. This thick, plush, oversized animal-print style—tied with a bow and ready to go—can cozy up to any type of decor. It’s not just a bestseller at Nordstrom; it’s also the object of nearly 300 perfect reviews! Bonus: It’s also on sale.
With more than 2,400 rave reviews, these wearable, famously flattering faux-leather leggings by the geniuses at Spanx (who really get women’s bodies) are so popular, they routinely sell out. Amazingly, they are in stock right now. Take advantage. They look as good as their less animal-friendly counterparts, which sell for—no joke—10 times as much.
This seven-inch ceramic aromatherapy diffuser is as pretty as it is functional. It can scent a room for three hour straight (or seven hours, on and off). Perfect for that friend who needs a moment of Zen at the end of every day.
Celebrities know the way to keep their hair looking gorgeous is to sleep on satiny silk—the fabric prevents tangling and frizz, so they wake up with the same luscious locks they went to sleep with. Gift your pal the same—an indulgent, practical, beautiful 100-percent silk pillowcase. It’s the perfect present: something she would never buy for herself but will love and appreciate forever and ever.
No surprises here! These Ugg slippers are a bestseller at Nordstrom for a reason: They’re the ultimate “throw-on-and-go” shoe. Your bestie can slip into them to run errands, walk the dog, or head over to yoga. Her feet will say “yum!”
The brand Barefoot Dreams is synonymous with comfort, so it’s no surprise that this soft, light, drapey cardigan landed among Nordstrom’s top sellers for gifts this year. Neutral and flattering, it crosses style barrier and ages. Mom, sister, bestie, even twentysomething—nobody wouldn’t love to lounge inthis sweet wrap.
This chunky rib knit sweater isn’t just ultra-warm: It’s also understated, chic, and irresistibly cozy. Order it oversized so your pal can wear it with leggings, though it looks amazing with jeans, too. It’s on sale, so—you know—it might be a good idea to grab one for yourself as well.
For the party girl or boy on your list, this small but mighty speaker—from the audio geniuses at Bose—delivers massive sound but is small enough to fit in a jacket pocket. Heck, forget party people. Even your dad would love this!
A truly universal gift: No matter how picky the person on your list may be, she will beam with hearts and flowers when she receives these lined Ugg slipper-socks. Nordstrom shoppers are buying them by the armful and raving about them online.
NIpped at the waist, this North Face is not only reliably warm (I mean...North Face!); it’s also super-flattering. It doesn’t overwhelm the body but it keeps heat in, even in the coldest weather. A great way to tell your daughter, “I love you, please wear a coat!”. In three shades—the breathtaking iridescent blue pictured here; vintage white; and gray heather.
What does a lady wish for at the holidays? Buttery leather gloves lined with ultra-soft cashmere. These bestsellers—though a classic, are also super-modern: the fingers are compatible with touch screens. A winner, for anyone.
Before you balk at the price, hear this: Dyson is not only the Maserati of vacuums; it also makes the most incredible hair dryer: one that cuts drying time (duh—of course) while protecting locks from heat damage. Brilliantly engineered to deliver both shine and smoothness, this baby looks a piece of art in any bathroom or bedroom. The Rapunzel in your life will swoon.
This tote bag is like having three bags in one: It’s reversible, plus it comes with a wristlet that you can use as a clutch for a night out, or to contain smaller items so they don’t get lost in the roomy tote.
No wonder this set is a Nordstrom bestseller — it has everything you need to wake up with glowing skin. Three masks nourish, moisturize and firm your skin, while the sugar face polish helps slough away dead skin cells.
We all know how cozy a pair of Ugg slippers or boots are. The Ugg Duffield II robe is no different. Made of a plush jersey and complete with contrast plush at the cuffs, pockets and collar, this robe is sure to be as much of a favorite for your loved one as it is for Nordstrom shoppers.
