No, this post isn't a pregnancy announcement-we've already done that! But the countdown to Christmas is officially ON and Santa (Baby) mode is in full effect!!
In my Instagram Stories last week I did a poll and asked what would be the most helpful to you during this hectic holiday season: holiday party looks or a gift guide. You voted and now we're giving you the Nordstrom gift guide that YOU asked for!!
These twelve hand-picked favorites and guaranteed winners are all UNDER $100 and things I absolutely LOVE! It's kind of like Oprah's Favorite Things, but you don't have to get anybody a car. Ha. Let's get started.
Something For Everyone
Don't worry if you voted for holiday party looks because you win too! Nordstrom invited me to be on their website to share some fun and festive holiday looks. So if you're looking to put together some pretty holiday-ready outfits, we're put together some really fun outfits and outfit inspo for the holiday season right HERE!
This Santa Baby sweatshirt IS as soft as it looks. Millie even spent the day carrying it around the house like blanket and refused to give it up! It's slightly over $100 but came in so close that I just had to include it.
Absolutely OBSESSED with this silk pillowcase. It is so good for your skin. It's so good for your hair. It's totally amazing. It helps prevent bedhead and wrinkles. It's gentle on eyelash extensions, and actually makes your hair last longer if you're trying to go days in between washing.
I love that you can buy it in a King or Queen, depending upon what size pillows your house is rocking, and it comes in TEN different colors and patterns.
Tip: Don't buy this in pure white, just in case you're like me and like to BYOP (bring your own pillow), so you don't accidentally leave it in a hotel somewhere! I have a plain one and a patterned one and the one with the pattern is A LOT easier to keep track of!
The darker colors are also nice if you're a nap queen (or gifting to one!), because then it's not a big deal if you're napping in makeup and little bit of makeup comes off on your pillowcase. But I don't really care what color it is…I am in love with this pillowcase and a major fan of ‘one size fits all' gifts like this!
If you're a long-time reader and you've been around for more than a minute, this next suggestion will come as absolutely ZERO surprise since I've gushed about these PJs being my fave of all time over and over again!
These pajamas are ALWAYS on my gifting list for any woman!! They are so classic and so buttery soft. I love my pajamas to be roomy enough and long enough so despite what the reviews say I feel like these run TTS!
They have over 1K PERFECT reviews and I think anybody would be absolutely thrilled to open these on Christmas morning! BEST PAJAMAS EVER!! And I will stand by that statement until my dying day.
Naked Honey Eyeshadow Palette
I'm a long time fangirl of all the Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow palettes and this brand new one is another winner! There are so many gorgeous color options in this neutral palette. Because it's so neutral this is a palette that would look beautiful on everyone and the golds are so fun for the holidays!
Also, this palette is brand new and already has almost 100 rave reviews!! Definitely a good sign for a gift that won't likely be returned.
Gorgeous Glow Face Palette
If I could write a love song to this all in one palette by Charlotte Tilbury I would because it is absolute PERFECTION in a palette!!! I don't know why but I just didn't expect this palette to blow me away like it did. It has the MOST gorgeous blush, highlighter, contour, cheek swish, and 3 beyond beautiful eyeshadow colors that ALL blend together like an absolute dream.
If you're going to be traveling a lot this upcoming holiday season or gifting to someone who's a minimalist and likes to travel, THIS PALETTE is the answer. You can carry this + your foundation + a brow pencil and be DONE. Okay fine maybe concealer and primer and setting spray too if you're like me but I digress.
Seriously it's amazing. Eyeshadow, blush, highlighter and contour all in one palette, and all of it is PERFECTION. Just trust me on this one. I promise you'll be obsessed too.
Barefoot Dreams Cozy Socks
These are the most dreamy, heavenly socks in the history of ever. Period. They don't wear out, they don't thin out, they keep your feet warm, and after a bazillion wears and washes they are just as cozy as day one!
These socks are so high quality and they're $15! It doesn't get much more inexpensive for a perfect gift.
These socks have over 230 five-star reviews and come in five cute colors. These would make a great teacher gift, stocking stuffer, or be perfect for a favorite things gift exchange!
Dreamland Knit Beanie
I think this $28 beanie from Free People is so cute and the perfect cold-weather accessory! This would earn a solid 4 out of 5 stars from me. It's not perfect, but it's really close! It's well made and very cozy.
I got it in pink because I love everything pink, but it comes in SIX really cute colors. This would make a great friend gift!
You. Guys. These cashmere gloves feel so ridiculously soft and luxurious (not itchy AT ALL), but that's not even the best feature. The fingers are all touchscreen compatible! So you can keep your hands warm and still use your smartphone! WIN!!!
I got the pink and I'm in LOVE, but had a hard time choosing because the tan, grey and black were all so pretty! 5 out of 5 stars from me. Perfect gift and at just under $50 a pretty perfect price for cashmere too.
Slip Sleep Mask
If you have eyelash extensions or have someone in your life that can't live without them THIS is your gift! I recently used this on our flights to and from New York and got some great sleep! It really does black everything out and it's gentle enough to use with lash extensions — worry free!
The reviews are incredible and I really love it. This would make an amazing gift for the beauty lover in your life that already has everything, because they might not have this!
Bliss Plush Throw
Over 1000 perfect reviews so you know this plush throw is a guaranteed win for anybody on your holiday list! I gifted this to my grandpa a couple years ago for Christmas and he wrote me the sweetest thank you note in return.
We've owned ours since the summer and my girls are constantly fighting over it because it's still so soft and so cozy. It's still buttery and luxurious and there has been no pilling. At $40 it's super duper affordable and comes in 14 cute colors to choose from.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Loves
I recently discovered these lip products in New York and I'm completely obsessed. I'm really liking this Collagen Lip Bath Gloss. I'm very picky about my lip glosses and hate when they're sticky or tacky-this isn't either!! It's very plumping and hydrating and amazing.
I purchased it in Refresh Rose and it's just going to make your natural lip color pop or give you a really pretty glossy glow over any lipstick!
The #1 selling lipstick at Nordstrom right now is Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk. I love it so much that I keep moving it between all my bags and totally can't keep track of it! I may need to buy a second (or a third) for backup because I get so mad when I can't find it! It's so magical and pretty and makes a great gift for any makeup lover.
When I apply this I actually like to put on the lipstick first and then use the Lip Cheat Lip Liner to just barely go over my lips after. My favorite thing about this color is that it looks good on EVERYONE and just enhances whatever your natural lip color is.
This pullover is so cute and so on sale right now! It's currently 35% off and under $50. According to other reviewers this pullover runs large, but I disagree. For me it runs true to size and I actually prefer items like this to fit oversized so that I can layer with it. Plus it just feel a little more cozy that way!
It comes in grey and a pretty cream and feels like you're wearing a cloud. Makes a really great, really nice gift, but doesn't totally break the bank.
