What to buy from the Nordstrom holiday gift guide: Our top picks
Nordstrom's holiday gift guide is here, and it couldn't have come at a better time. Between supply chain delays and port backlogs, this holiday season is expected to be a hectic one. It's best to start your holiday wishlist shopping early this year to ensure you have the best chance of nabbing the hottest toys and gifts of 2021 before they sell out.
From stocking stuffers to under-the-tree-worthy gifts, Nordstrom's holiday gift guide has you covered with the best beauty, apparel, home goods and more. Shopping for a candle fanatic? Voluspa's holiday advent calendar will wow them with its 12-candle selection. Know a travel enthusiast itching to get back on the road? A sleek and convenient travel bag might be just what they need.
And the power of comfortable and stylish slippers should never be underestimated. A pair of Ugg slingbacks will make a reliably great gift for nearly any recipient.
