Happy Friday, everyone! I am partnering with Nordstrom today to talk about finding the perfect gifts for all occasions. Today, however, the event is wedding shower gifting and with Nordstrom, it is super easy! Gifting with Nordstrom came at the exact perfect time because I am hosting a shower tonight for my son and his sweet fiancé. The party is a Southern Supper that was planned outside around the pool, but it’s supposed to be 96 degrees for the high, and I hope no one faints (I did get mister fans)!
Anyway, I am planning on wearing this adorable (and cool) dress from Rebecca Minkoff. I thought it would go with the theme of the evening. It is a lightweight, flowy dress that those mister fans will hopefully get through! I love it paired with my leopard sandals (which by the way I have had for about four years now) for the party, but I would also wear a cute wedge with the dress. The great news is that this dress is 40% off right now!
Wedding showers are so fun to shop for, and Nordstrom has a zillion things for the bride and groom to be! So I found this beautiful white pitcher (doubling as a vase) that I am holding while looking in the home section last week. Usually, I love giving a gift that can be used a few ways. I honestly didn’t realize that Nordstrom had so many great shower and wedding gifts to choose from. I think glassware is a great gift and found these Waterford Crystal Champagne Glasses, Juliska Clear Glass Goblets, and a set of six Stemless Wine Glasses.
Another thing I think the bride and groom would appreciate are linens. I always give white Sheets Sets (they go with anything) and Towels (who knew they carried Matouk?). Throws are also a great gift, like this pretty one by Sferra. Small appliances like toasters, blenders, coffee makers, and frothers (I love mine) make such fun gifts too!
Sometimes it is hard to shop for a couple, especially if you don’t know them well. I think an e-gift card is a thoughtful gift as well. I know a lot of people think that gift cards are not “thoughty”(my made up word) enough. However I disagree. Honestly I think couples enjoy going and picking out what they need together. It’s fun to have gift cards after the gifts have been opened and they can fill in with what they didn’t get, or use it later for shoes! I am big on giving gift cards! If you don’t know about Nordstrom Gifting Service, you can order e-gift cards to be delivered to the recipient by email, or gift cards can be delivered by mail in special packages and can be used in-store, online, or by phone.
I have rounded up my very favorite wedding/shower gifts below. I hope this helps you with summer weddings and showers. I’m off to run last minute errands and get this house in order. I hope you all have a great weekend! Thank you for reading! xx
Thank you, Nordstrom, for sponsoring this post!
