The Best Ways to Spend That Nordstrom Gift Card You Got For the Holidays
The best gifts come in the "choose your own adventure" form. We're talking gift certificates. Sure, they may not be the most personal, but they allow you to splurge for what you've really been wanting. While some use gift certificates to buy things they otherwise wouldn't purchase, I choose a more utilitarian approach.
Updating the items you use in your everyday life (your go-to bag, that cozy pair of sweatpants you put on the second you get home from work) once a year is a great way to keep your favorite things fresh. For me, this means a new work bag, a comfortable shoe that can be worn anywhere, and a dress that makes me feel like I could run a Fortune 500 company.
Sometimes, I buy the same thing year after year, as is the case with my favorite multiuse beauty product. But each year I'm thrilled to find better, more exciting versions of the items that got me through the year before. And unsurprisingly, they all can be found at your local Nordstrom. So if you still haven't used that $150 gift card from the holidays, here are some suggestions of what to buy me. I mean, what you should buy.
