Christmas in July! (Holiday Gift Ideas from the NSALE)

Christmas in July! (Holiday Gift Ideas from the NSALE)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Christmas may seem like it is forever away, but it will be here before we know it! Savvy shoppers know that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale offers tons of products that make fantastic gifts.  Today I am sharing a few that will definitely be on my holiday gift guide this year and now is the chance to save tons of money on those items! Think ahead for birthday gifts, too!

Barefoot Dreams

Barefoot Dreams is one of the most popular brands in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. It is understandable why everyone wants to take advantage of this deal because many of the Barefoot Dreams items are marked down over 30%. I love this CozyChic Cardigan in the almond color. This hooded cardigan would also be amazing to snuggle up in on a cold day! I have heard of many people stocking up on these cardigans during the #NSALE and gifting them at Christmas to all of their female family members or to staff. This is a gift any woman would love to receive!



Luggage makes a great gift to a person who loves to travel or a family member who you know has a worn out suitcase! I picked this suitcase up last year and it has seen so much use. This 20-inch spinner suitcase is amazing quality and the perfect carry-on size. These hardshell suitcases have become very popular lately, but these are offered at a fraction of the price of some other brands. It also comes in 25-inch spinner to make a set. Both of these suitcases are marked down by at least 25%.

Pair the luggage with this adorable monogrammed luggage tag and passport case. This set also makes a great gift for a college student or someone who is about to travel abroad. It is available in four different colors!


kate spade

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great time to replenish your gift closet in preparation for Christmas. Pick up a few of these initial necklaces by Kate Spade for $31.90 each (reg. $48). If you are looking for something a little different for your mom or sister, this necklace by Nadri is the perfect addition to any outfit. It comes in silver, gold and rose gold so there is a color for everyone! This Tory Burch watch is an amazing value, marked down over $100.

Halogen has so many adorable cashmere items in the sale this year that would be perfect Christmas gifts. I love this scarf because it can be worn so many different ways. It is marked down over $50! I got it in pink but the lavender is so pretty. It comes in seven different colors. This cardigan is one size fits all and would be the perfect thing to throw over your blouse or dress on a cool day. Perfect for someone who loves soft, cozy accessories! I picked it up in this tan color, but it also comes in pink and black!

tory burch

Handbags and wallets are also a great item to pick up during the sale. This Longchamp tote would be perfect for someone who loves all things chic. I love this Tory Burch wallet for teenage and college aged girls on sale for $91.90 (reg. $138). This Madewell crossbody also make a great gift for someone who needs a good everyday bag!


Candle Sets

Candle sets are definitely another favorite in the #NSALE. The best part about these candle sets are that you can either gift the entire set or split it up into smaller sets to use as business, neighbor, or hostess gifts. NEST Fragrances has the amazing set in the sale. The Sicilian Tangerine scent included in this set burns so well! You also cannot beat the scent Diptyque candles!  This set includes their three most popular scents with a matching eau de toilette spray. Jo Malone is another favorite of mine. Their travel candle set has three popular scents, including my favorite Jo Malone scent, Peony & Blush Suede. Another popular candle set is this Voluspa Two-Wick Tin Candle Set on sale for $29.50 (reg. $48).


Beauty Sets

Nothing beats the beauty sets offered in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This MAC Brush set is a great value and perfect for a teen. This GloPRO set is perfect for your mom and sisters. It is such a great deal because it also includes an eye set. It is marked down $100! You can read why I love the Glo Pro in this post.

This beautyblender set would make the perfect stocking stuffer. I love the DryBar set too because it only $165, but includes so many different products, valued at $240.


Home Accessories

There tons of other accessories in the sale that make great Christmas gifts for everyone on your list. These Swell water bottles are so popular and perfect for any age. Barefoot Dreams also makes these cozy blankets in tons of colors. Stock up on these as gifts for family and friends. Other popular blankets brands include this UGG Blanket (just restocked in all colors!) and the Nordstrom brand blanket on sale for $25.90 (reg. 39).

This Le Creuset set is marked down to $55.90 (reg. $84). I love the idea of picking these up as hostess gifts or to bake something in as a gift for a neighbor. Browse all their home accessories here for more amazing gifts.

If you are looking for a gift to keep on hand all year round, I love gifting these turkish towels. They have so many uses and make wonderful hostess gifts. Read about my other favorite hostess gifts here.

Gifts for Men 

Men can be hard to buy for, but shopping for them in the #NSALE helps avoid the stress of trying to find the perfect gift later on. Cologne gifts like this two piece Chanel set make great gifts. Another popular brand included in the sale is Jack Black, a favorite among most men. This liter sized bottle of Beard Lube is only available during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

I also love this monogrammed grill tool set for the grilling enthusiast!
