Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale, during which new fall merchandise is discounted before the season rather than at the end of it, usually means stocking up on makeup sets, booties and new coats.
But this year things are (say it with me) different. The typical fall items will still be available when the sale opens to everyone Aug. 19 (items are already available to Nordstrom credit card holders), but the locally headquartered department store is also offering an increased number of items for nesting as cool weather and the coronavirus keep us inside.
Here are 10 finds that will keep your home and body cozy and improve your de-stressing time. (All items available at nordstrom.com and at stores, which have extensive safety protocols in place, as well as free curbside pickup. Prices go back up Aug. 31.)
Smeg ’50s Retro Style Electric Kettle ($171.90, $230 after sale). You can’t have a hygge home without a steaming cup of tea. And what better way to get it (and perk up your kitchen counter) than with a glimmering gold or rose gold Smeg kettle?
