Happy Monday, Y’all! Only 6 more sleeps ‘til Christmas!
But don’t you worry, for those of you that still need some gift ideas, I’m here for you. #procastinatorsunite
I’ve got a super cute outfit for y’all (I’m FLIPPING OBSESSED with the jacket), I have some excellent gift ideas, and I’ve even got 1 final Christmas collage.
Now here’s the deal. If you live close to a Nordstrom, they’ve got a service that you’re going to want to utilize. If you still need presents, this is going to be your saving grace. You can BUY ONLINE TODAY, and you can PICK UP IN STORE either today or tomorrow! It’s crazy convenient and a perfect option for those of you that still need a gift or two to throw under the tree.
You need to make sure you have your zip code entered in either at Nordstrom.com or on the app, and then if your Nordstrom or a nearby Nordstrom has the item in store, FREE PICKUP becomes an option.
- Pick Up Today: shows the current selection in your single chosen pickup store.
- Pick Up Tomorrow: shows the selection of all locations in your area, and we’ll ship the item to your chosen store for pickup the next day.
LADIES. This is going to absolutely save some of you! You’ll get a text or e-mail telling you when your order is ready, and that’s it!
And listen, if you use this service, you don’t even have to go inside the store if you don’t want to! Nordstrom locations now have parking spots designated as pick up areas. You pull into one of those areas, you call the number on the sign in the parking spot, they will ask you your name and order number, and they will bring your items out to your car! A Nordstrom associate will walk out, place the bags in your trunk, close your trunk up, holler “THANK YOU!”, and then you will both be on your merry way.
Again, YOU DON’T EVEN HAVE TO GO INSIDE.
IT. IS. GENIUS.
And if you don’t live by a store, there are still some options…
*LAST CHANCE: FREE 3-day shipping for cardmembers. Order by 3pm ET, December 19
*Get it in time for Christmas. Order by December 20, 8pm ET, and choose expedited shipping.
MY FAVORITE NEW JACKET
Before we get to some UNDER $50 gift options, I’ve got a favorite new item to share.
I don’t really know that this should be considered a jacket because it’s super lightweight, but I do know that I LOVE IT.
Like I really reallllllllly love it.
This vibrant “cherry crush” color is so great, but it also comes in “oat milk” which is a perfect neutral. To be honest, I love it so much I’m seriously considering grabbing it in the oat milk too. I’ve already worn the cherry crush 3 times, so I know I would get my money’s worth out of it.
First of all, the jacket is so flattering. And I’m sorry, but if something is truly flattering, I’m pretty much always going to want it in at least 2 colors. Haha! 😉
A soft cotton-rich knit keeps you comfy on slightly chilly days in a relaxed zip-up jacket with an exaggerated spread collar.
It’s 96% cotton, 3% spandex, and 1% polyester which means it’s super comfy, lightweight, and has a bit of stretch.
I’m telling you, you need to grab this for yourself. For size reference, I’m wearing a small.
I’m sad to report that my camo sneakers aren’t currently available, but there are lots of colorways from the same brand that are! There’s a white and tan leather, a white and black leather (I have and love them), and a white perforated pair that’s awesome too. If between sizes, I would recommend sizing down a 1/2 because the leather stretches after some wear.
I’m so sorry to say that my MUST HAVE leggings are no longer available, but I know that tons of you ladies already have them! If you do, I think this jacket pairs perfectly with them. If you don’t have the must have leggings yet, you can click HERE for lots of other options from Zella (and many of them are on sale).
I love everything about this outfit.
SOME MORE GIFT IDEAS
And ladies, in addition to the awesome hoodie I’ve highlighted above, I’ve also got some really great UNDER $50 gift ideas!
Let’s start off with a handful of ideas for the men in our lives. Everything here is UNDER $50!
Chris has had these The NorthFace Etip gloves for a couple of years now and absolutely loves them. His hands stay warm and he’s still able to use his phone and other touchscreen devices with ease. These are a must for guys and make a super useful gift! They’re basically sold out in black, but it looks like the stock is holding in the dark navy. These are also a great gift for your teen son.
When I was at the mall last week I grabbed the Hair and Scalp Conditioner (only $24) for Chris and the Body Building Hair Gel (only $15) for Carter. I was super excited about both of them, but when I grabbed the link for the hair gel I saw that the reviews aren’t great. Click HERE to check out all of the Jack Black products available to check out other options. You can grab individual products that they have all year long, but you can also choose from some awesome gift sets.
I have this crewneck sweater in the light lavender (officially called “pink grey marl”) and think it’s an awesome sweater. And right now it’s ON SALE for under $25! Click HERE to see me in it in the pink grey marl at the bottom of the post. The sweater is incredibly soft. I like the simple lines and the classic look. For size reference, it’s oversized, and I can wear the small or the x-small.
LOOK AT ALL OF THESE AWESOME UNDER $50 GOODIES!
This Rose All Day Sheet Mask Set would be a super fun gift for a Rose lover in your life.
This Tocca mini perfume duo is adorable. And it’s a total steal at only $22.
I ordered this for myself, it just came in, and I am super excited to try it.
Here’s why I’m excited…. Find some blissful shuteye under this lightly weighted, supersoft fleece sleep mask designed to alleviate stress and anxiety. The reviews are excellent!
The butter socks paired with the weighted eye blanket would make a great little combo gift.
Okay, so here’s the deal.
This stud and huggie earring gift set is over $50, but I couldn’t help but include it in today’s post. Not only do I love both earrings, but the set comes in this beautiful box that makes it perfect for gifting.
This would be fun set to gift as well.
This dainty initial necklace is such a beautiful piece. I treated myself to a “C” for both Chris and Carter. Fingers crossed that the letter you want is still available.
It’s so pretty.
This adorable little jewelry box is ONLY $35.
And look how great it is inside! PERFECT for travel.
I have these Pure Silk Scrunchies and think they’re awesome. They don’t pull on my hair at all and they’re super comfortable to sleep in. Gift the scrunchies with the sheet mask set!
Well, this little tray is adorable.
Gift the tray on its own or pair it with some jewelry! These cz stud earrings always make an excellent gift. They are so sparkly and are awesome quality. Click HERE for tons of CZ options from Nordstrom. Their CZ quality is amazing and so many of the pieces are gorgeous.
Right at $50, this Tory Burch Essence of Dreams fragrance set is a total bougie gift and I love it. It’s a limited-edition, Nordstrom-exclusive set that includes three fragrances from Tory Burch’s Essence of Dreams Collection in travel-size sprays. They are the perfect size to travel with or just throw in your purse for daily use. Give the entire set in this fabulous box or separate them out as stocking stuffers.
This cleanser in holiday packaging is no longer available, but you can there are some holiday sets from Kiehl’s that are still available.
This holiday-exclusive kit includes a best-selling, full-size primer and a mini setting spray to create a fabulous finish.
Charlotte Tilbury’s cream eyeshadow sticks are fabulous, and this set has 2 awesome colors. These can be used as shadows or liners, and they are so easy to apply.
And ladies! How adorable is this pendant necklace and tray set. What a precious gift! It’s only $30 and there are 3 necklaces to choose from.
Now….these gifts aren’t necessarily under $50, but they are all FABULOUS. And they should all still arrive before Christmas (but make sure you check your area for your delivery window).

* This hatch nightlight would be good for your 5-year old or your teenager! It’s a sound machine, and it uses light for an alarm clock. SO COOL.
