Last Minute Gifts with Nordstrom Local
** in partnership with Nordstrom **
Procrastinators rejoice, the answer to your Christmas gifts is here! You’d be surprised to know that I am a serious procrastinator when it comes to gifts. I work really hard prepping my gift guides for you and then end up always waiting to the last minute to make the move on my list. This year I’m still really behind (thank you FLU!) but I ended up making good headway last week when I tested out everything that Nordstrom Local has to offer.
So what is Nordstrom Local? A convenient hub that allows you to reserve online and try in store, buy online pick up in store, gift wrapping, returns + exchanges, alterations… all the things! TBH when I first heard about Nordstrom Local earlier this year I didn’t really get it. That all changed when I finally decided to see what all the fuss was about.
Last week I had a girl’s holiday dinner on Friday evening that, per the usual, totally crept up on me. On Thursday I still hadn’t gotten gifts for everyone or figured out what I wanted to wear. Enter: Nordstrom Local. I went on the Nordstrom app and filtered by items near my location. From there I was able to find gifts for my gals (all the Nest Candles + Stila Lip Sets)- added them to my cart, asked for gift wrapping, and paid for them… all to be picked up the next day at the Nordstrom Local in Brentwood. But that’s not it: I had been eyeing a few potential outfits to wear to dinner and didn’t have any time to go to the mall and try them on earlier in the week so I opted for the “reserve online + try in-store feature.” Within the app I selected two dresses (this one from Ref + this one from Frame) and this gorgeous top to have pulled for me and ready to try on at Nordstrom Local the next day (no charge!)
The next day I got to Nordstrom Local in Brentwood and everything was waiting for me! My purchased items were beautifully gift wrapped and the outfits were ready to be tried on. All 3 looks were so good but I ended up going with the Frame dress because I felt like I could get a little more wear out of it. It was so so easy; literally the most efficient shopping trip ever! The store was also decked out with lots of great last minute stocking stuffers so I grabbed a few of those, too. Honestly I cannot suggest this service enough; it’s so convenient, especially during this time of the year. It will save you from going into the craziness that is the mall haha!
