PSA: There are more than 100 days until the holiday season. Which, for most people, seems like a reasonable amount of time to not think about gifts yet — but most, my friends, is not all. Not everyone leaves their holiday shopping to the very last minute, and for those forward-thinking individuals, now is the time to make your first moves.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale sets are some of the best gifts around right now. After all, wouldn't mom appreciate a La Mer set? What about your best friend — wouldn't she enjoy a value pack of sheet masks (so she can stop using yours)?
