The Nice List
Our Editors’ Holiday Wish Lists
Find out what our Nordstrom editors are giving and (hopefully!) getting this holiday season.
By Tessa Trudeau
It's better to give than to receive, some say. But we think both are nice! So we asked four of our Nordstrom editors to share the items they're most excited to give and what they want to unwrap this year. Their expert opinions should help cross those final names off your own list.
Ganni Mohair & Wool Sweater
"Giving the gift of cozy is my favorite thing during the holidays, and this Ganni mohair sweater fits the bill to a T. The fuzzy mohair and retro pointelle details remind me of a much-beloved sweater my mom passed down to me, so I’d love to share those feelings of warmth and care with someone else."
Ellery Genealogy XL Palm Earrings
"I love a good statement ear—the more over-the-top the better. These Ellery earrings strike just the right balance of glam bling and offbeat surrealism. Someone please get them for me!"
—Preetma Singh, Managing Fashion Editor
Nordstrom Signature Darien Solid Cashmere Overcoat
"With Italian craftsmanship and luxe cashmere, this coat is the ultimate gift—an investment piece that will last a lifetime. I especially love how versatile it is: he can dress it down with a hoodie and trainers or throw it on over tailored pieces to level up his look."
Nike Air Vapormax Light II Sneaker
"I love these little booties! They’re tough enough to wear on my city commute and cool enough to go with all my favorite outfits. Bonus points: people are guaranteed to notice and compliment them, which always feels nice when I’m out and about."
—Amy Morgan, Men's Editor
NuFACE Gold Trinity Complete Toning Collection
"My partner and I can easily forget we’re careening toward our 40s and bracing for impact. When we do remember, we pile on the skin care. We’d both get a lot of use from the Gold Trinity Complete Toning Collection from NuFACE—the microcurrents sound relaxing and it’ll look so futuristic on our bathroom counter!"
Charlotte Tilbury The Golden Goddess Set
"A few years back my partner’s family treated me to a Charlotte Tilbury set. It was amazing—beautifully packaged and a thorough introduction to the brand. Charlotte’s experience as a working makeup artist is evident in these kits, which contain everything you need to channel one of her high-glamour muses. They went with Vintage Vamp, but I’d love to explore my inner Golden Goddess…"
—Cirilia Rose, Beauty Editor
Comme des Garçons Tartan Patchwork Wallet
"You can’t go wrong with a Comme des Garçons wallet, and this colorful tartan offering fits the bill perfectly. It’s compact but holds all your cards and just enough cash. And it looks festive too!"
Gucci Brixton Convertible Loafer
"These classic black loafers are on the top of my wish list this holiday season. They’re made from buttery-soft leather and the collapsible heel can be folded down, making them super versatile."
—Carrie Buckle, Deputy Editor
