If you caught our last Personal Stylist post, you know that our in-store experts can help you assemble a killer look (or six) for any occasion—and it’s all free of charge.
Not so surprisingly, they can do a lot more than that—like make this holiday season the best one your wife, girlfriend, mom, sister or daughter has ever had, thanks to classic, stylish, can’t-miss gifts. Today, Elizabeth Rigby (a Personal Stylist Manager at our NorthPark Center store in Dallas, Texas) walks us through her favorite gifts for the ladies in your life. Visit any Nordstrom store, and your very own holiday wingman or wingwoman will happily do the same.
1. Burberry Giant-Check Crinkled Scarf. “The iconic, classic Burberry camel-check scarf is recognized as a luxury item around the world. This particular scarf can be worn year-round, due to the lightweight feel of its wool/cashmere blend. It will spruce up her scarf collection and ensure she’s in style where ever she goes—a great gift for women of all ages!” (shop this item)
2. Chloé ‘Marcie – Small’ Calfskin Satchel. “A youthful and modern handbag that’s versatile for her wardrobe. It’s made in Italy of lightly pebbled calfskin and is very sophisticated due to its workmanship; also a favorite thanks to the optional strap and interior pockets. A great gift for your spouse or girlfriend!” (shop this item)
3. Halogen® V-Neck Cashmere Sweater. “The gift of cashmere is always appreciated! And the price tag on this cashmere sweater is so reasonable that you’ll want to get her several. The variety of fun colors offered this year is better than ever. This is a great gift for your niece, aunt, sister…and it’s also offered in Petite sizes.” (shop this item)
4. Vince Leather Scuba Jacket. “Every girl needs a Vince lambskin-leather jacket. Other than the quality of the leather, I love this jacket because of the ribbed side panels under the arms that provide great comfort and movement. It’s very chic, and she can wear it to work with a dress, or wear it anytime with her jeans.” (shop this item)
5. UGG® Australia Double-Knit Robe. “The plush fleece that lines this robe is extremely warm and comfy—and I love gifts that you can monogram and personalize to show a little extra thought. Just have your Personal Stylist ask our alterations shop to monogram her initials on it when you buy it. A great gift for your mom, grandmother or wife…and if you’re jealous, you can even buy a matching one for yourself from the Men’s Shop.” (shop this item)
6. St. John Collection Antique Rose-Gold & Crystal Necklace. “This is a great statement necklace, with tiny Swarovski crystals, that will get compliments every time she wears it. If you have a wife or grandmother who’s always attending formal events, she’ll love it.” (shop this item)
7. Tory Burch ‘Jenna’ Riding Boot (Nordstrom Exclusive). “You’ll always make your daughter happy when you give her a great piece from Tory Burch. This doesn’t scream the label, but it is marked with the Tory Burch golden hardware for a more classy look. I like this boot because it has a full-length zipper to make it easier to put on and take off.” (shop this item)
8. Nordstrom Gift Card to Shop with a Personal Stylist. “Sometimes the best gift is a Gift Card to ensure your special woman gets exactly what she wants. I would suggest having Nordstrom wrap the Gift Card in a gift box with a Personal Stylist brochure, a Personal Stylist’s business card and a Nordstrom catalog. Now she’ll feel even more pampered than ever when you tell her about our complimentary Personal Stylist services to make shopping easy and fun!” (shop Gift Cards)
9. Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mini M.A.C.’ Shoulder Bag. “This handbag is great for the high-school or college girl. It’s one of our number-one items that every girl desires. It comes in many colors and can also be monogrammed with her initials. The optional strap allows it to be carried as a clutch or worn across the body, and she can also alter the straps to make it a cute shoulder bag. It’s a go-to piece for every girl!” (shop this item)
10. Bony Levy Diamond Stud Earrings (Nordstrom Exclusive). “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and I would choose these if you haven’t given your girl diamonds before. Bony Levy is my #1 choice because I know he’ll customize anything for my customers. These 18-karat white-gold earrings are exclusively ours, and you can upgrade them at any point in time. Maybe just plan on upgrading the diamond size for her every Christmas and make your life easy! The diamonds range from 0.25 carats to 2.00 carats. Each time you upgrade, you just trade in the ones you purchased and only pay the difference in the carats.” (shop this item)
