The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is best known for its fashion selection, but one department to not overlook is home! I always get excited to shop the home section of the sale because you can score great deals on really luxurious items and they often have exclusive colors and scents that you can’t get anywhere else. It’s also a great time to start thinking about gifts for upcoming weddings, birthdays and even the holidays! The best part is that the savings are substantial. I typically stock up on my favorite candles, a new throw or two, and then see if there are any gadgets I’m missing. (I’m particularly loving this sparkling soda maker and this steamer that’s super easy to travel with). I usually buy items I want in the early part of the sale and try them out before sharing my favorites with you guys so all of these are tried and tested pieces! If you’ve yet to rummage through Nordstrom’s home goods, you’re definitely missing out. Ahead, I’ve gathered the best home items that are in stock!
My Top Home Items…
Home carbonation is a major trend right now that I think is here to say. I love anything carbonated, but hate the idea of buying anything with synthetic compounds – which a lot of flavored sodas have in them. With this AARKE sparkling water maker, you know you’re getting real water and you can easily add real ingredients for added flavor. At-home carbonation is not only healthier and more convenient, but it’s more environmentally friendly too since it eliminates the need for single use plastic and cans.
The AARKE Carbonator is super sleek and made from stainless steel. Unlike its competitors, this sparking water maker’s industrial design will stand the test of time. It’s the must-have luxury sparkling water maker on the market right now. The modern design is an added bonus because it looks extra stylish on your countertops and the sand-colored finish is exclusive to Nordstrom and their own site. Personally, I love the color because it goes with any kitchen design and lends well to both warm or cool tones.
Soeder is a new brand to me and it’s unlike anything I’ve ever used before. It’s a true soap, not a chemical detergent – like many soaps on the market. It’s all natural and smells amazing. The Soeder soap collection included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is actually an exclusive North Stream scent – which you’ll only find at Nordstrom. The scent is described as one that will transport you into the woods in Northern Sweden surrounded by fresh water streams and moss covered rocks – which is very accurate! It’s a very fresh scent that is sure to appeal to everyone.
Stock up on these fresh-smelling hand soaps while they’re under $20. Since this is real soap, you don’t need nearly as much as you would with regular soaps that are mostly packed with chemicals and water. This one is both sulfate-and-preservative-free too.
This lotion is quite possible the most hydrating lotion I’ve ever used! It has ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, and squalane and it’s only preservative is tree bark extract – which also has an exfoliating and anti-inflammatory effect, making the lotion suitable for people with skin issues like acne. We’ve been using this lotion for a few weeks now and I’ve noticed a HUGE difference in my hands already. I feel like I’ve reversed time and they say you can always tell someone’s age by looking at their hands!
You guys know I’m all about investing in quality clothing that will last, but it’s not just about the initial investment – you have to invest in maintaining the pieces you wear too. The main way I maintain apparel is by using a high-quality steamer. Of course we all know that steaming clothes is a quick and easy way to remove wrinkles, but did you know it’s also a great way to eliminate bad smells, dirt and bacteria? Think of it as a dry cleaning alternative at home. I always steam my investment blazers after wearing them which has definitely prolonged the life of them. This steamer by Steamery is the best handheld steamer I’ve used. It has as small water tank making it very portable, but the tank is enough to steam 3-4 pieces of clothing. The white color is exclusive to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so be sure to grab it before the sale ends!
Another key way to extend the life of your clothes is by using premium cleaning products. Steamery not only makes the steamer above, but they also make this laundry kit which contains everything you need, including wool dryer balls, to properly care for your garments made from wool, cashmere and everything else! I love that their products use zero colorants, zeolites, phosphates or preservatives and they use highly concentrated formulas which provide 12-19 washes per bottle.
