The best basics from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2016.
As hard as it always is to find my mom a gift, it's always 10x harder to find one for my dad. I feel like it's always the same constant repeat of gifts- clothes, golf, grill, clothes, golf, grill...To break out of that rut, I put together some gifts for a variety of personalities. I hope this helps a little bit for all of y'all that struggle as much as I do!
for the prepster:
I'm obsessed with preppy style for guys. Not many guys are into styling an outfit, so a preppy t-shirt like this one and some Sperrys, and you're done!
for the traveler:
Traveling is my absolute fav but always super hectic! First, they limit how heavy your bag can be, which so does not work when I'm trying to avoid looking like a hot mess. Then there's the 4 oz limit, which can be so frustrating. Some airports even take away products less than that, which totally doesn't make sense. There's always some kind of delay, whether the plane's late coming in, or (the absolute worst) when you have to sit on the tarmac for hours. Car rides are fun, but I can only last so long before I'm bored. An iPad is the perfect solution! It doesn't take up too much space, can be used with or without wifi, and is endless entertainment. The best for on the go!
for the techie:
Going with the polaroid theme from my gift guide for her, Urban Outfitters sells a printer which prints polaroid pictures minus the camera. You can print pictures wirelessly from your phone and they come out looking like a Polaroid!
for the athlete:
My brother is an athlete so it's always been easiest for me to find him something. Shoes are basically always on the list, so that makes it super easy! But apparently red soles aren't the type of shoes he likes, so I always have to send him tons of different colors and style until there's one he actually likes!

Sometimes the hardest part of the holidays is finding the perfect gift for someone. Then there are always those people that have everything. Literally everything. I've put together some of my favorite picks that would make perfect gifts.
the last minute gift:
Heifer is a charity organization that gives resources to poverty stricken countries. For example, a family in India might need a cow to be able to make an income. Well in order to get the cow, they need the money to buy it. That's where Heifer comes in. You can either donate a whole animal, well, crop, whatever... or you can donate part of it. So if you only wanted to spend $20 dollars on a gift, you could contribute to part of something that someone really needs! Seriously perfect...
I've been eyeing these headphones for over a year now, so when I saw them on sale for 50% off, I couldn't pass that up!
the girl on the go:
When I was younger, my mom would take my brother and me to take pictures with Santa and the Easter Bunny. We would get the coolest Polaroid picture that always made its way onto the fridge. I'm so so glad they're coming back because they are honestly so cool- like who wouldn't want an instant printed picture?!
A good statement necklace can be one of the best pieces in a wardrobe. I love this one and it goes with everything!
Hopefully this helps a little bit for all of your holiday shopping!
