The Hottest Gifts from The Rack This Season

November 8, 2021


Erin Schrader

Disclosure: Thank you to Nordstrom Rack and ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring today’s post. All products were selected and loved by yours truly!

I don’t know about you, but here at LIY we’re starting our holidays a little early this year. The second that the calendar flipped over from October to November it was go time. Bring on the sparkles, the eggnog, and most importantly – the mission for the perfect gift!

Thankfully Nordstrom Rack has become gift central this season, with something for everyone on your list! And with free shipping on orders over $49 and free buy-online-pick-up-in-store, your holiday shopping list has never been easier to tackle! They’ve even made great gift guides for all the interests – for the athlete, for the fashionista, for the lounger, for the kids, and so much more! Like I said, easy peasy.

To take it one step further and make it even easier, today I’m sharing what I consider to be the hottest gifts for him and her this season, all from the Rack! Name brands they’ll know and love, at a great price!

Gifts for Her

All The Cozy Things

Halogen Crewneck Cashmere Sweater // Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Throw

Halogen Crewneck Cashmere Sweater: I’m sorry, did you say cashmeeeeere? Yes, please! Available in 12 colors, gifting her this will definitely keep you on the nice list!

Barefoot Dreams Cozy Chic Throw: Barefoot Dreams in a blanket form? Yes please. When you hear Barefoot Dreams you know it’s going to be g-o-o-d goooood. This is the gift she’ll be thanking you for over and over [and over].

Marc Jacobs Tote

Marc Jacobs Colorblock Tote Bag [all Marc Jacobs here]

Marc Jacobs Colorblock Tote Bag [all Marc Jacobs here]: For the girl on the go, this colorblock tote bag is the perfect daily use bag, whether that’s trips to and from the office with her laptop or trips to and from The Rack 😉

Nest Candle

Nest Three-Wick Candle

Nest Three-Wick Candle: I have a hard time finding a candle that smells better than Nest, and this three-wick candle is large enough to burn for 150 hours! Burn, baby, burn!

Sips & Slips

Water Resistant Slippers // Hydro Flask Water Bottle with Sport Cap

Water Resistant Slippers: Keep her tootsies warm and happy this winter with these soft, water resistant cuties!

Hydro Flask Water Bottle with Sport Cap: You know I couldn’t leave Hydro Flask off the list! The gift you can’t go wrong with!

Therapy Light

Verilux HappyLight

Verilux HappyLight: For anyone who lives through dark winters [think little sunlight], this is the gift to give! 30 minutes of “happy light” each day will boost happiness, energy level, and more- truly light therapy!

Pompom Beanie

Pompom Beanie

Pompom Beanie: Use it for a stocking stuffer or a stand-alone gift, but either way her head will be feeling toasty and looking cute!

Silk Pillowcase

Blissy Silk Pink Pillowcase

Blissy Silk Pink Pillowcase: When I first heard rumor that silk pillowcases would give you less face winkles and less frizzy hair than a traditional pillowcase, I couldn’t hit checkout fast enough. This one comes in 10 colors and several sizes, and will have them feeling like the queen that they are!

Gifts for Him

Wireless Charging Station & Speaker

Wireless Charging Station with Speaker

Wireless Charging Station with Speaker: It charges and it plays [music], and bonus – it is made of biodegradable wheat fiber! Win win win!

Cole Haan Sneakers

Cole Haan GrandPro Rally Sneaker

Cole Haan GrandPro Rally Sneaker: Shawn’s favs can be your guy’s favorite too! Comfortable and cool, all in one shoe!

Tablet Sling

Solo Ludlow Universal Tablet Sling

Solo Ludlow Universal Tablet Sling: Whether he’s using his tablet to read books or for a day at the office, help him keep it protected with this tablet sling! With a protective pocket and several additional storage areas, he’ll have a place for everything while keeping his tablet in one piece!

Hydro Flask Backpack Cooler and Wine Bottle

Hydro Flask Backpack Cooler // Hydro Flask Wine Bottle

Hydro Flask Backpack Cooler: To a beach, to a concert, or to a backyard get-together, this Hydro Flask backpack cooler will keep him hands free while carrying the goods!

Hydro Flask Wine Bottle: You read that right. A Hydro Flask that holds an entire wine bottle and is made for drip-free pours. Yes, please!

Wallet & Heated Massager

Heat Therapy Massager // Boconi Leather Bi-Fold Wallet

Heat Therapy Massager: duhduhduhduhduh <– That’s the sound of him getting a massage using his new heat therapy massager!

Boconi Leather Bi-Fold Wallet: Fold it and then fold it again! This wallet has a space for all the things in a nice, leather, compact space!


Genuine Sherling Moccasin Slippers

Genuine Sherling Moccasin Slippers: Slippers soft enough that he’ll think he grabbed yours, but masculine-looking enough that he’ll know they’re his.

Get a kickstart on your holiday shopping with Nordstrom Rack so you can relax once December arrives!
