Growing up with a local Nordstrom store often meant running through glass doors before closing for any gift-related emergency. In middle school, a gift card to Nordstrom Café (where the tomato soup and grilled cheese were all the rage) and a Juicy Couture charm bracelet was the perfect combo to show your BFF just how high she fell on your it-list. Later, when it came down to meeting the parents (i.e., your S.O.'s mom and dad), a flash trip to the Jo Malone counter would ensure a spot in their good graces. And, even hard-to-shop-for siblings were covered with everything from fancy shaving kits to Chuck Taylors at arm's length — Nordstrom truly is, and was, the end all of one-stop-shops.
Luckily, not much has changed about the beloved department store. Nordstrom, even now that it resides in a seven-story, pre-war building just south of Central Park in Manhattan, still does the most in the gifting department, from its world-class return policy to its famous silver gift wrapping. So whether you're prepared to splurge on a trendy, designer gift for your S.O., or just in need of a quick stocking stuffer for the fam, we're betting that these 20 options from Nordstrom will be just what you were looking for.
