Holiday Gift Ideas for Women: A Mini Guide To Get You Started

gift guide for her

The Holiday season is rapidly approaching, so it’s time to find some fantastic holiday gift ideas for the woman in your life. Below, I have some makeup, beauty, jewelry, fragrance, and cozy gift recommendations anyone would love! 

Best of all, everything is available from Nordstrom online. I shop online with Nordstrom all the time. It’s a one-stop-shop for everyone in the family. I can find a huge variety of items, from fashion to home to beauty. They also offer free shipping and free returns. Because I don’t have a Nordstrom within driving distance, I can enjoy hassle-free shopping right from home! 

Here are some of my holiday gift ideas from Nordstrom:


You just can’t go wrong with a fantastic makeup gift set or a coveted makeup item from a great brand for the makeup lover in your life!

Charlotte Tilbury Bejeweled Eyes to Hypnotize Palette on top of wooden table

The Charlotte Tilbury Bejeweled Eyes to Hypnotize Palette is a stunning limited-edition palette that flatters everyone. It features four gorgeous eye looks that even a beauty novice can create. Or mix and match to your heart’s content!

MAC has another great eyeshadow palette gift option that gives you three different color stories to choose from. It’s at a great price point and the quality is sure to please anyone on your list!

 NARS Mini Orgasm Double Duo, NARS Mini Afterglow Balm Lip Balm Duo, NARS Mini Lipstick Duo or the NARS Unwrapped Mini Brush Set.  on tip of black countertop

NARS has some fantastic holiday beauty gifts and stocking stuffers this season. Select from: NARS Mini Orgasm Double Duo, NARS Mini Afterglow Balm Lip Balm Duo, NARS Mini Lipstick Duo or the NARS Unwrapped Mini Brush Set

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray  on top of wooden table

With everyone wearing masks, it’s important to find a setting spray to set your makeup so it’s as bulletproof as possible. Bulletproof PLUS alcohol-free that gives your makeup an airbrushed finish and doesn’t change the finish of your makeup? Put it in a gorgeous, giftable bottle, and BINGO, you have Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray 

Gucci Bronzing Powder on top of wooden table

This is THE bronzer of the moment. It’s not only stunningly flawless on the skin but comes in a gorgeous, collectible tiffany blue compact. Anyone would be thrilled to receive the luxurious Gucci Bronzing Powder.


slip hair ties in different neutral colors

Slip Hair Ties may seem unnecessary, but trust me when I say they’re worth every penny! My hair creases when it’s in a ponytail for even five minutes. But not with these! These are truly gentle on the hair, yet stay in and don’t crease! I’m still in disbelief! 

pink makeup mirror with LED lights

Everyone needs a really great makeup mirror with excellent lighting and magnification…especially as we get older! This one from Riki Loves Riki will delight any makeup lover.

Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum

Baccarat Rouge 540 Eau de Parfum is a luxury fragrance that’s been on my own personal wishlist forever. I think fragrance in general is such a nice gift to receive for the holidays. My own personal current favorites: Jo Malone Peony & Blush Suede, Chanel Chance Eau Tendre, Diptyque Do Son, Byredo Mojave Ghost.

NuFace beauty tool on top of bathroom countertop

If you know someone that’s into anti-aging, NuFace is an essential beauty tool. And what better time to indulge in a beauty tool than the holidays! This uses micro-current technology to lift and tone the facial muscles that get lax as we age.


A holiday season doesn’t go by without me purchasing a NEST Holiday candle for myself and for others. If you want the most authentic, gorgeous holiday scent, there is no other candle than NEST Holiday. This year, there’s a fantastic NEST Holiday & Birchwood Pine Duo too! Birchwood Pine is the most beautiful tree-scented candle I’ve ever smelled. These are must-haves!

I don’t know a person in the world that doesn’t like having a super soft blanket stashed in the house to cuddle up in. We have them everywhere and love having extras to go around. This one is Nordstrom’s own brand and feels extremely luxurious.

How cute and fun are these socks!? Who wouldn’t love getting these in their stocking!?

The hype is real around Barefoot Dreams cardigans. Nothing beats the softness, coziness, and luxurious feel. Personally, I love the circle cardigan for wearing with a cute outfit or at home. Check out this blanket, socks and mask travel set!

The UGG Scuffette II Slipper has been on my wishlist forever. I think these are perfect for anyone. I love the leopard print so much!


When looking for holiday gift ideas, you can’t go wrong with jewelry, right? This necklace is a staple for me that gets loads of compliments. This would make a great gift for anyone who loves classic pieces with a twist.

These studs are perfect if you want something simple yet a little bit different from the norm. I’m a huge Gorjana fan because they have pieces with style that can be super versatile!

Kendra Scott Yellow Friday

I showed this photo in another post recently. But I’m in love with all of these pieces! These drop earrings are favorites of mine that get a ton of wear with both simple and statement necklaces, like the Whitley Chain Necklace. I love wearing the Whitley necklace and Whitley Chain Bracelet with the clasp turned forward (as shown) or rotating it to the back for more casual looks.

This pendant from Kendra Scott is a piece that gets loads of wear. I have this pendant in silver and love it so much, I ordered it in rose gold too! I love mixing and matching simple and statement pieces like these!

I also love this Dean Davidson pendant. I’d love to receive this as a gift from someone! It’s not something you see everyday and is just stunning!

If you want to give someone a matching set that’s great for the holidays or for all year round, these stud earrings and pendant necklace are perfect. There’s even a matching bracelet too!

Happy shopping everyone! I hope these holiday gift ideas from Nordstrom help get your shopping season started on the right foot!
