We love shopping at Nordstrom, and not just during its annual Anniversary Sale. From in-house Nordstrom Made brands to the best in beauty, there’s an array of goodies we want to add to our shopping carts at all times.
That’s why we were so excited to sit down with Autumne West, national beauty director at Nordstrom, to give us the 411 on the hottest beauty gifts to buy right now.
“Nordstrom strives to be a leader in beauty by inspiring and engaging customers with a curated selection of prestige and emerging beauty brands across all price points, along with great service,” West told the New York Post. “We offer something for everyone, we are here to make shopping fun, easy and convenient whether our customers choose to shop online or in stores.”
What’s more, there’s no better time than the present to shop for holiday gifts. “I always anticipate customers will gravitate towards gift sets that include multiple pieces, and are either high value or limited edition for the holiday season,” West recommends. “It’s always a standout gift that impresses and a treat, especially if you’re looking to spoil yourself with something special this year.”
So, West shares her 20 favorite gifts from Nordstrom to shop. Prepare to get your cart ready — these are true beauts.
