This charcoal briefcase grill by RS Barcelona is dead simple to use, clearly great-looking–and crucial for enjoying after-work dogs at the nearest park.

After falling under its spell, it occurred to us.

Surefire Father’s Day gift. 

True story: Last time we took it to the beach, a group of women eyed the grilling station and, eventually, Amy introduced herself to ask what the product was and where it could be purchased. We directed her to our Poolside Pop-In@Nordstrom, either in person or online. She said it would be the perfect Father’s Day gift for her husband.

Giving the perfect gift is right up there on the list of things that feel amazing, but it just got even better. Nordstrom is now donating 1% of Gift Card proceeds to our nonprofit partners. That means when you give, you give twice. You give powerfully.

We believe in connecting with and empowering the communities we are part of, so we’re thrilled to be supporting organizations that positively impact our cities. As part of our 2015 focus on youth and kids, your Gift Card contributions will help Ronald McDonald House, Boys and Girls Clubs, Special Olympics and other like-minded enterprises as they literally change the world.

Gifted Giver: Jorge Valls

Should you assume, however, that his brain is dedicated solely to suits and boots, we’d have to point out that he’s also an expert on French and English lit. For a worldly, classics-influenced take on the art of style and gifting, read on…
