I don’t know what your calendar is like this time of year, but my family’s is FULL of special occasions! We’ve got weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, and tons of kids’ and babies’ birthday parties. Not to mention my sister’s, brother’s, and mom’s birthdays too! You would think after over three decades of celebrating my whole family’s birthdays this time of year that I’d have a fantastic system down that includes planning ahead with gifts. NOPE. That’s why I am VERY grateful for stores that make online shopping and gift giving SUPER easy!
Today I’m partnering with Nordstrom to talk about really convenient gift-giving and sharing some gift ideas for birthdays, weddings, bridal showers, baby showers, or other events you might have this fall!
Buy Online, Pick Up in Store ??
I buy 99.9% of gifts online because it is so stinking convenient, and Nordstrom makes it SUPER convenient. Nordstrom offers free shipping on all orders and free return shipping, which is ??. Why is that not standard for every store? That’s one reason I shop at Nordstrom so much for my own clothes!
But if you shop for gifts last minute like me and NEED the item right away, like you have an event to attend that evening, Nordstrom offers an extremely convenient “buy online, pick up in store” (BOPUS) option! You’ll have the items in hand for the party you’re going to that day, without the trouble of shopping in store.
