25 Best Nordstrom Gifts of 2023

Must read

There’s no shortage of gift guides this time of year, but hopping from place to place (even virtually) can be exhausting. That’s where our edit of the best Nordstrom gifts of 2023 comes in. As a true one-stop-shop for everyone from the newborn baby on your list to your sweet Gran, the options at Nordstrom are vast, but we gathered just the right selection of products to help you check off your list without stressing.

Chances are, you have at least one friend who is a beauty lover on your list. And chances are even higher that said beauty lover is expecting you to sleigh (get it?) when gift-shopping for them. Or perhaps you’re looking to spoil just yourself with some limited-edition skin-care or makeup sets before they go out of stock by the end of the season — in which case, we salute you for thinking ahead. Whether that means going for the splurge-worthy options with five-star reviews or more affordable, under-$50 beauty sets is your call, but thankfully, Nordstrom has both.

Below, you’ll find the best Nordstrom gifts for the holiday season at every price point — and we’re not just talking beauty. There are plenty of home and lifestyle pieces worth putting under the tree. Psst…If you really don’t know where to start, you can also just shop our edit of award-winning products at Nordstrom. (You know, the crème de la crème from the Allure Best of Beauty Awards and Readers’ Choice Awards over the years.)

  • Byredo Les Triplés Eau de Parfum Miniature Set

    It can take a lifetime to truly know someone’s fragrance taste. So let’s lower the stakes, okay? With this Byredo Les Triplés Set of minis, your giftee can suss out their fave — and it was very sweet of you to provide some direction. In the box, you’ll find a travel-size Bal D’afrique with notes of bergamot and violet. Move your nose along to the woody, desert-inspired Mojave Ghost and, finally, Gypsy Water, which is reminiscent of fresh soil and peppery lemon.

  • Westman Atelier Eye Pods Cream Eyeshadows

    This kinda-creamy-kinda-powdery Eyepods Eyeshadow Trio from Westman Atelier is thoughtfully designed for the makeup buff on your list who likes experimenting with new looks. Each trio has a core, highlight, and accent color to build up and brighten your lids (you, artist, you). Or, pick whichever shadow strikes your fancy and paint it on with a gentle hand for a sheer look. For peak pigmentation, Westman Atelier suggests lightly pressing a finger or brush tip into the shadow’s heart-shaped seal to loosen the powder before applying. The shadow’s uniquely textured formula makes for easy, controlled application with zero fallout, and the magnetic cases stick together for breezy organizing. Happy blending!

  • La Mer Rejuvenating Rituals Set

    We love a skin-care present that practically creates a routine for you, and this La Mer Rejuvenating Rituals Set includes four full-size products that’ll bring life back into wind-chapped cheeks. Start with the fast-absorbing, über-hydrating Treatment Lotion, applying to your whole face, before going in with the smoothing and protecting Regenerating Serum (whose results you’ll start seeing in four weeks). Move onto the Eye Concentrate to lighten those stubborn lines and sleepy circles, and then top the whole thing off with Crème de La Mer (one of our favorite luxury moisturizers) to lock in all of that delicious moisture. We came for the value and stayed for the softness.

  • Little Words Project Ride or Die Beaded Stretch Bracelet

    Shopping for bestie? Worried that a lip gloss set doesn’t get the “I’m-obsessed-with-you” message across? Opt for the Little Words Project Ride or Die Stretch Bracelet to eliminate all confusion. The square letters sit sweetly among a string of silver beads and serve as an all-day reminder of you and your giftee’s friendship. We also love that the Little Words Project bracelet comes with a code to register your bracelet on the brand’s app or website, which adds you to the Nice Girl Gang, a community of women dedicated to supporting one another through kind words and actions. (We’re not crying, you’re crying.)
