Chanukah is coming!

During this time in the month of Kislev, as we are nearing Chanukah, we can see that the days are getting darker earlier, and we are often surrounded in darkness. With the coming of Chanukah, iy”H, I hope that the light of the Chanukah menorahs that we will light in our homes, each night for 8 days, will shine a bright light not only unto the physical darkness of earlier sunsets, but also upon the dark tragedies that Klal Yisroel has experienced in recent days.

Although the true meaning of Chanukah has nothing to do with presents and giving gifts, it has become a time when we exchange gifts with the people we love. I know that I personally love to receive gifts that will be useful and are good quality, as opposed to junky gifts that I won’t ever use. Nordstrom always has really nice gifts for everyone on your list, and you can often find many things that are reasonably priced. My #1 reason for shopping at Nordstrom has to be the fast, free shipping, SUPER easy returns, and wonderful customer service. I also invested in the Nordstrom Debit Card earlier this year, so with every purchase I get points toward free rewards. Here are a few Nordstrom Gifts Under $25 that I know anyone would love to receive this holiday season.

For the coffee lover or working fashionista, this Kate Spade ‘cold hands’ thermal travel mug is the perfect find. It is so cute, and anyone would love to drink their caramel lattes in style this winter.

To add a little pizazz to a Shabbos l’chaim, try these adorable icon‘Yay, Boom, Cheers’ Shot Glasses from Slant Collections. They also make stemless wine glasses that are just as sweet.

Who doesn’t love a nice candle? This icon‘Birchwood Pine’ Votive Candle by Nest Fragrances is a great winter smell, and Nest always makes the prettiest and best-smelling products. You really can’t go wrong here! Some are more expensive than others, but the candle above is only $14.

I just bought these Polo Ralph Lauren Argyle Socks for my husband. He loves to wear them on Shabbos and for fancier work occasions. They are very soft, and the price has recently dropped!

I just got this Bobeau One-Button Fleece Wrap Cardigan for myself, but it is so cozy that anyone would love it! It’s $39.90 on sale, and would make a great gift for your friend or family member who wants to be warm and comfy this season. Or, just buy it for yourself!

Nordstrom also has a Wit and Wonder gifts section for some funkier choices. They have lots of cute options here as well. Don’t forget to sign up for Ebates Coupons and Cash Backbecause Nordstrom has 6% cash back right now, just for clicking the Ebates button in your toolbar! Look out for some more gift ideas and steals coming your way, especially on Black Friday. I personally have never been into pushing and shoving my way to a state-of-the-art digital camera, but the hubs has been doing Black Friday for years. So I guess I’m in for an experience!

I hope that by gifting to and thinking about the ones who mean the most to us, we can all help bring a little more light into the world. Here’s hoping this Shabbos is a peaceful one filled with love and chessed all around.
