Nordstrom Holiday Gift-It Guide

Hello friends!  So I know last week I said I'd have my picks from the November Nordstrom catalog, but seeing as how November is behind us, I figured I'd skip on ahead to December's Gift-it Guide.  You guys don't mind right, besides nobody likes to live in the past.  

 So, I was at my local Nordstrom on Saturday, and let me just say, the place looked amazing.  I love seeing my favorite department store all decked out for the holidays!  I especially loved that they had little gift tables set up in each department with great gift giving ideas (a lot of which were under $100). 
 I was walking through handbags when I spotted this fun piece.  For $34 it's the perfect stocking stuffer or gift for a girlfriend.

 Fuzzy sweaters haven't been this big since I was in Jr. High.  I'm personally loving their comeback, but I have yet to find "the one".  I picked up this Anthropologie sweater a few months back, but ended up returning it because it was way too boxy.  I think this sweater definitely has potential and lets face it, I'm a sucker for a heart print.  Side note, at 34 am I too old for a heart print? 

I featured this infinite love necklace in my What A Girl Wants, For Christmas post and I have it on good authority that it will be mine!  It's been on my wishlist all year and I still love it.

 Burberry watch, this was one of those look at the brand and price only after you've fallen totally in love.  Never a good idea. 

 Jo Malone, because I can NEVER decide which scent I want most so I end up walking away empty handed.  This is brilliant.

I wanted these TOMS booties so bad last Fall, but they sold out right away and then never came back in stock.  When I saw them at my local Nordstrom in August, I immediately purchased a pair in taupe.  I haven't stopped wearing them since.  They go with just about anything  and are so comfortable. 

 Nordstrom is killing it in their home department this year.  First with the Spoon Me pillow, and now with this.  Flip it over and the pillow reads "Not Tonight".  So fricken cute.

 I'll be dreaming of these bad boys for years to come, always wishing I had them.  How often do you see gold boots.  I love you Tory Burch.

And last but not least, this super expensive but gorgeous Eileen Fisher sweater.  When I'm rich, I'll have one for everyday of the week!

Browse the Nordstrom Gift-It Guide and let me know what your favorite piece is.  Have a great day all!


  1. Some great ideas Shannon. I'm loving the TOMS booties. Do you know how high they are?

    1. Hi!

      I just brought out the measuring tape and the heel itself looks to be about 3 inches. I can't say enough about how comfortable they are. I swear it feels like I'm wearing a pair of slippers!

      Thanks so much for stopping by. I'm following you on Bloglovin' now :)

  2. I love the "happy hour" clutch and the "tonight?" pillow is hilarious. I try to keep the gifts I give around $25 so I probably wouldn't give those away but I could totally get them for myself, don't you think? :)

    1. Well miss Mollie, you're in luck! As soon as I reach 100 Bloglovin'/GFC readers I'll be giving away the Happy Hour clutch as a thank you. It means so much to have you guys here in the beginning of it all with me.


  3. Hi Shannon! I just discovered your blog and wanted to say that I love your honesty! I especially enjoyed your posts on blogging, your job, and being a childfree woman! Look forward to reading more!
