The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is a great time to stock up on personal goodies and gift picks. After browsing the sale, here are my best gift picks for others and for yourself (hey, you count too here!)
RMS Luminizer Set – this natural beauty company has packaged together three of their luminizers/highlighters for a lovely gift. I would snatch this up and pair it with a facial for Valentines Day or Mother’s Day, to keep her skin looking dewy and refreshed.
Salad Serving Set – This set would be so beautiful with a kitchen towel embroidered with your recipients initials.
Backpack - This bold, modern backpack is perfect for any guy on the go. If you get it for a traveler, add your favorite book to read on a plane. If you get it for a hiker or outdoors-man, add some gear or a gift card to an outdoor sporting good store. If you get it for a soon to be high school grad, add a sweatshirt from their new alma mater.
Chess Set - For the high brow gamer, this elegant chess set would make a great gift. And for the man in you life that wants to learn about non-digital games, this set with a how-to book would also make a great gift.
Cute Speaker – I love this dino or whale speaker for a young child or a new mom with a nursery so they can play soft soothing music when it’s time for the kiddo to fall asleep or play rousing kids music during play time. It’s a Bluetooth speaker so Mom can control it from her phone!
Kids Backpack - Fill this oh so cute pack with stuffed animals, kids books, maybe a favorite snack or two and everything a kid might need.
Poketo Acrylic Stands – These stands make a great hostess gift. Get two for a normal table setting of six people. You can even get three sets if you know the recipient has a large dining table. Add some name cards with a note that says thank you for letting us be your guest and these are perfect!
Centerpiece Bowl - This lovely petal pink earthenware bowl would be the perfect hostess gift filled with beautiful fruit from your local organic grocer. How perfect would pink apples look in this bowl?
Gifts to myself:
My strategy when buying gifts at the sale is to really make sure that it’s worth it. I don’t want to go crazy just because I see the word SALE! What is the dollar amount that I’m saving and the percentage off. 20% Off may be $100 or it may be $10, so just be aware of what you want to get and how much you want to spend for it!
