I’ve always loved the idea of giving (and receiving) gift cards for Christmas because I hate to pay full price, and everyone knows that your money goes a lot further after the holiday when stores have deeply discounted their merchandise. My parents used to give me a gift card to Ann Taylor LOFT (back when it was called that and was only in outlet stores) and I’d go and buy business suits for my job because they sold more professional clothing than they do now.
While those days are gone and now my “professional clothing” is pretty much a pair of nice jeans and ballet flats, I still love to shop the after-Christmas sales and pick up items that I’ve been eyeing for months.
Today I’m sharing a few of our favorites from the Nordstrom Semi-Annual Sale. You’ll notice that many–or really, most–of these items have already made an appearance on our gift guides, so I went through and found the ones that are still available and are a great deal. I try to buy a few key pieces every year and tend to spend a bit more for higher quality items that I can keep for a long time, but there are plenty of inexpensive items out there to round out your wardrobe or home decor.
I set up the gallery to show the current price on hover, but a couple of them aren’t reflecting the sale price, so be sure to click through to see the lowest price, colors, and sizes available. I hope you find a few great deals to spend your gift cards on–thanks for stopping by!
