NSale: Our Favorite Home Items

July 16, 2021


Erin Schrader

While the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale may be most known for the leggings, sweaters, booties, and jeans [basically a PSL in clothes format], we couldn’t forget about the home section! This area may not get nearly the love, but it’s JUST as good [if not better], and the NSale is a great time to stock up on staples for your home, gifts for the holidays, and decor! Keep on scrollin’ to see what the LIY Team found in this year’s NSale for our homes!

Anniversary Sale Shopping Tips & Tricks

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: it’s open for all cardholders now and will be open to everybody on July 28th! If it isn’t currently available in your size and color preference, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering two sizes on things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return the one that doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 8/9, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!

Erin’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Erin’s Candle Trio

My oh my, are these candles worth the buy. I bought this trio in the “forest” option which came with three different scents: woodsmoke, santal, and fern + moss. I am obsessed with all three candles and can’t wait to burn them all fall and winter long. I also love the simple look of these – believe me, you will l-o-v-e how these babies smell!

Erin’s Electric Kettle

This electric kettle is truly one of the purchases I was MOST excited about making in this year’s anniversary sale. I’m an avid tea drinker [we’re talking morning and night] and I’ve been eyeing this electric kettle for a year or more now. When I spotted it in this navy color with maple accents, I knew it was time to take the plunge. You simply plug it in, push a button, set your temp [I have mine at 100 degrees], and it heats up super fast. Pour over your tea and you’re ready to roll!

Erin’s Diptyque Candles

I’ve been eyeing these candles for quite some time but have never taken the plunge until now. I always feel super fancy when I see these in people’s houses so I wanted to join the fancy party and make our house feel the same. These are just little guys but they back a BIG punch scent-wise!

Erin’s Slip Silk Pillowcase

I’m not the only one who loves my silk pillowcase 😉 I’ve been using a silk pillowcase for a year now and can’t imagine going back to a traditional pillowcase now. Not only is it silky smooth, but it’s great for your skin as well. The most noticeable difference is in breakouts [or lack thereof] and it has a lot of benefits for your hair to cause damage while sleeping.

Erin’s Bath Towels

After winning the “best towel” award in our recent bath towel comparison, I knew I should stock up on more of these Hydrocotten towels for our guest bathrooms at the lake. Not only are they super soft, but they are also absorbent and they wash up nicely. Added bonus: they come in all sorts of fun colors making your dry-off time even more enjoyable!

Erin’s Bliss Throw

If you’ve yet to add this throw to your couch, now is your time girlfriend. It’s been a best seller for years and for good reason. It’s incredibly soft, washes up super well, and is a hit with adults and kids! I am currently waiting for the oversized one to arrive and can’t wait to snuggle up in it in no time!

Erin’s Oversized Bliss Throw

Well, well, well look what just arrived — the oversized version of the throw I just mentioned above! I gotta tell you friends, whenever you have the opportunity to go big or go home, you go big. The oversized version of everybody’s favorite throw is where it’s at. Why keep your snuggles to a minimum when you can have alllll the coziness under this guy? Big fan..

Lauren’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Lauren’s Round Serving Board

Nordstrom at Home Round Marble & Acacia Wood Serving Board

WOW I fell in LOVE with this wood and marble serving board. It’s beautiful enough to keep out, it’s functional [can you imagine all that cheese?!] and did I mention it is BIG? I love that it was available in a darker color verses a white as well! A major NSale home hit!

Lauren’s Nordstrom Bliss Plush Throw

Nordstrom Bliss Plush Throw

If there’s one item to stock up on during the sale, it’s this blanket! For your bed, for your couch, for gifting throughout the year, it’s one of the best under $25 purchases you can make! Crazy soft, and available in a TON of colors!

Lauren’s Hydroflask

Hydroflask 32-Ounce Wide Mouth Cap Bottle

What is this a water bottle for ants?! [raise your hand if you get the Zoolander reference!]. I guess I should have done more research about what the ounces would actually look like, but I thought 32oz would be a lot more than this. Back it goes!

Lauren’s Barefoot Dreams Blanket

Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Throw Blanket

Three words: Barefoot. Dreams. Blanket. I got this last year during the NSale and it is worth every penny. Without a doubt, there is some fighting for this blanket in my house [and I 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!

Hannah’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Hannah’s Serving Board

Marble & Wood Serving Board

Let’s pretend for just a minute that this board has cheese, olives, sauces, crackers and it’s done up all pretty ; ) While that may not be the case, this board is so pretty [even without the cheese] and amazing quality!! I love that it’s both marble and wood and under $25!! 

Cassidy’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Cassidy’s Wall Art

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!

Becca’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Becca’s Barefoot Dreams Blanket

Barefoot Dreams Throw Blanket

This blanket is one my hubby and I fight to see who is going to get to use it every night! Its cozy and soft, but lightweight enough to use year round! Definitely a spendier piece, but if you want a little treat, you won’t regret it!

Becca’s Diptyque Travel Candle Set

Diptyque Travel Candle Set

This fancy little candle set splits up well into 5 little gifts for others [or yourself]! Each one is in its own tiny box, and although they are tiny their aroma can fill a room! 

Roll Up Blanket

Roll Up Blanket

This roll up blanket is perfect for your next picnic, soccer game or beach day! Easy to tote, unroll and then roll back up when you’re ready to head home!

Katy’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Katy’s Plush Throw

Nordstrom Plush Throw [Grey Magnet]

HELLO, COZY!! This throw does 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. It also holds up really well. I love all of the color options – I will definitely be getting more of these!

Katy’s Voluspa Maison Set of 5 Tin Candles

Voluspa Maison Set of 5 Tin Candles

OKAY these candles smell amazing. This set is basically your own “flight” of candles so that you don’t have to commit to a larger version of a scent you haven’t been able to try out yet. I already loved the Volcano from this brand, but hadn’t tried any others before. I am loving all of these that were included!

MISS: Katy’s Nordstrom Cooling Down Alternative Pillow

MISS: Nordstrom Cooling Down Alternative Pillow

MISS: I had high hopes for this pillow, but unfortunately (along with my head) they fell flat. I’m all about a good fluff, but this one was somehow too big/poofy but I sank into it at the same time. However, if you do need a new pillow check out our “Best Pillows By Sleep Position” blog post….I will be ordering one of those instead here soon! 

Steph’s Nordstrom Home Finds

Steph’s Shower Curtain

Peri Home Panama Stripe Shower Curtain [72 inch square / Grey]

After redoing our guest bath this past Winter, our Primary Bath is the last room in the house that hasn’t been touched by paint/decor. I think that will be a Fall/Winter project, so to get a head start I purchased this shower curtain FOR LESS THAN $20! Next up, come up with some more creative and appealing storage, pick a paint color and get to decorating!
