Best of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Home Edition

August 22, 2020


Erin Schrader

Calling all homebodies! Who am I kidding? Everybody is a homebody in 2020. And if you’re not one yet, snuggle in. You’re about to be. If there’s one thing LIY does well and does often, it’s lounge. We’re also pretty darn good at finding deals, if I do say so myself. But today you’re in luck, because we’re bringing you the best of both worlds. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: there’s no better way to kick off the coziest season of the year than with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. That’s right! The Anniversary Sale isn’t just about new boots and sweaters, ladies– but we certainly added a whole lot of those to our shopping carts too. The LIY Team hit up the aisles of the nordstrom.com Home Section to find the best of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Home Edition. ps. You can find Erin’s tried and true favorites for around the house here!

Becca’s Favorites

Barefoot Dreams Blanket

This blanket sure is a treat yo self kind of purchase, but oh so soft and cozy! It’s super warm,  the perfect weight and — bonus points — it’s even long enough that my tall hubby doesn’t complain that his feet stick out when we cuddle up with it! Snuggle season will be here soon, and we are ready!

Diptyque Travel Candle Set

If you want to smell something that is close-your-eyes-as-you-inhale type of amazing, you should definitely give diptyque candles a try! They are definitely an investment piece, but honestly they will have your room smelling delicious before you ever light the wick [no joke, they are mighty little candles!] This little set is nice so that you can try out the different scents before you invest in a larger jar. Plus each individual candle comes in a little box, so you could split them up between gifting a few and keeping a few. One for you and a few for me! They would make perfect little stocking stuffers or a fancy little something to add to a little self care gift!

Steph’s Favorites

DKNY Clipped Square Duvet Cover // Nordstrom Bliss Plush Throw [Grey Frost]

I think I officially became an adult this week when I put on my first duvet cover. This grey pattern was just what I needed in my life and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the look of it. Speaking of things I’m thrilled about, welcome to the blanket family, Grey Frost! This is the third Bliss Plush Throw I’ve added to our home and I’m always so impressed with the quality and coz-ability of these blankets. Let the cuddling begin! PS – if you’re looking for an affordable duvet, I snagged this one after Erin recommended it.

Hannah’s Favorites

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket // Anthropologie Salt & Sand Candle 

If you know how good the cardigan is then you know that the throw blanket is going to be equally good!! The minute this Barefoot Dreams throw arrived I knew we would be spending a lot of time together! It’s definitely a treat yo’ self gift but it’s currently the most fought over item in our home! And you can’t not stock up on the most heavenly smelling candle ever created. When the box arrived you could smell this candle through it! Pass the glass of wine and I’m set for a relaxing evening.

Godinger Meridian Blush Stemless Glasses

I’m a sucker for fun and colorful wine glasses so when I saw these I knew it was meant to be! This set is a little bit of a thinner glass but didn’t seem like it would shatter after one use [yes, I’ve been known to break a glass or two ; )]. My wine time just got a little better!

Cassidy’s Favorites

Anthropologie Floral Throw Blanket

I’m a sucker for throw blankets and throw pillows, so it is no surprise that this Anthro throw made into my cart! I love the little aspects of texture and of course the pops of color! It is currently sold out, boo. But I have my eye on it and will alert the masses if it comes back in stock! 

Moon and Sun Art Frame // Animals in the Wild Art Frame

If I had to describe my home style I would say somewhere between, modern-eclectic-boho! So it is safe to assume that these art frames perfectly capture that vibe! I love the fun, colorful art but was absolutely sold when I realized they came with the frame! Such a great price for adding some art to your home! 

Lauren’s Favorites

Barefoot Dreams Blanket 

Three words: Barefoot. Dreams. Blanket. Without a doubt, there will be some fighting for this blanket in my house [and I’ll always win ????]. Seriously SO soft, and worth the splurge in my opinion! If you’re looking for a lux gift for Christmas already, you’ll want to add this one to cart before they’re gone!

Nesting Bowls

One little, two little, three little nesting bowls! My kitchenware is getting a fun upgrade with these stackable bowls, available in a few different colors! 

Katy’s Favorites

Nordstrom Plush Throw [Grey Magnet]

HELLO, COZY!! I’ve heard amazing things about this throw and it did not disappoint! It is sooo soft and I love the tassels on it as well! It’s a great blanket to have out as decor and ready to cuddle up with when you’re on the couch. I love all of the color options – I will definitely be getting more of these!

Dot Fringe Comforter and Sham Set

I was so excited to spruce up my bedroom with this set! The dot fringe adds a fun accent to the white, neutral color. I would say this comforter is more than lightweight but not as heavy as a down comforter. It has a good amount of “fluff” with no insert required, however if you’re looking for something super soft you may want to try something else. This one also caught my eye, but I’ve really been enjoying my set so far!

Claire’s Favorites

Diptyque Travel Candle Set

If you’re thinking about dipping your toes into diptyque, take the plunge! I’ve heard rave reviews, but never owned one of the candles. I decided to take advantage of this set and give ’em a try. WOW-OH-WOW! These little guys are small but mighty and put off some seriously good smells. We’re giving this brand the LIY stamp of approval.

Barefoot Dreams Blanket 

If you’re not a homebody already, you will be as soon as you’re wrapped up in this one! It’s official: the throw blanket of your DREAMS is worth every. single. penny. Treat yo’ self or give the greatest gift of all time. ps. Do yourself a favor and get the cardigan to match. Snuggle me up, Scotty!
