Winter Sleepwear: The Coziest Holiday Tradition

During the whirlwind of glitzy soirées, airport delays and copious shopping, everyone should take time to wrap up in something snuggly.

We’ve gathered an assortment of the season’s most comfortable sleepwear to indulge your holiday hibernation (all pair well with cookies and cocoa). Ahead, find our favorite sets for wearing around the house on those days when not getting dressed is the most luxurious gift.



Gift Yourself the Perfect Holiday Accessories

In the season of giving, we’re guilty of taking a “one for you, one for me” attitude when the gift is glamorous or glittery. Our weakness? Accessories. Lavish additions get us every time, and for good reason: a fresh pair of earrings or fun new pumps add panache to standby wardrobe staples. Still, we want to be selective in our splurges, bearing in mind the parties that we’ll attend. We’re practical–even about piling on more jewelry. 

Below, all the trimmings that we’re eyeing (plus shoppable links), curated by type of holiday party—and its festive song personality.

Illustrator Sanna Annukka Makes Us Feel Merry & Bright

From brilliant birds to mysterious bears, a cast of colorful characters is decking our halls this year, courtesy of the talented illustrator Sanna Annukka. You’ll find her menagerie peeking in between the branches of Christmas trees, waving from coffee mugs and frolicking across shopping bags throughout the holiday season.

Her distinctive style is part homage to midcentury Scandinavian design, part celebration of her Finnish heritage and 100% of the moment. Annukka’s mom is from Finland, and the young artist soaked up Finnish folktales and folk art on summer visits with her grandparents. The influence on her work is undeniable. Our holiday trim is imbued with a certain magic that goes beyond eye-catching colors and retro-chic sensibility.

We asked Annukka a few questions about her personal style, her favorite Finnish word and the meaning of the animals she brought to life for us.

Holiday GIF Guide: What to Give the Men in Your Life (Animated Edition)

He’s your champion, your travel companion, your sounding board—sure, sometimes (especially lately) it sounds more like venting. Above all, he’s one of the good guys.

Show the men in your life that you appreciate their many contributions and good behavior with a present that will really move them. We’ve rounded up the top gifts for guys in GIF form. There’s something here for every man of action in your life (dads, spouses, brothers, boyfriends) to thank them for the righteous deeds they do.



Gifts for Mom: The Mother Lode

Your mom’s parenting style made you who you are today. Whether you agree with the laxity or strictness of her methods, whether you appreciate her cooking or lack thereof, whether she’s a source of comfort or anxiety (likely a bit of both), you’re an adult now, so it’s time to let bygones be gone—just buy your mama something nice for the holidays.

Nordstrom gifts for Mom

Here are gift suggestions based on the realm in which your mother excels—or choose from both. Moms do it all, all the time.

The domestic front: She rules the kitchen and the living room like a duchess does her duchy. Home-cooked meals are regularly served with a side of sangfroid. And Mom tidies tirelessly; grimy bathtubs and stovetops don’t stand a chance against her scrubbing.

Help her celebrate the season with pretty gold star and orb ornaments. This 12-inch wood reindeer charms with its rustic finish and sweetly bowed head.

While she busies about the house, UGG® shearling slippers will keep her toes toasty.
