the nordstrom sale is here! as i’m sure you are well aware with your instagram feeds blowing up about all the great deals 🙂
there’s a reason it’s such a popular sale. so many new fall finds are discounted and prices go back up once the sale is over.
when shopping the sale, remember to shop for what you need. i always list a few items i need to add to my closet, pick two or three wants [different than needs] and one splurge item.
last year i splurged on this mirror and absolutely LOVE it! i like to think of it as an early birthday gift to myself!
this year my splurge is going to be on this bag. i’ve been needing a smaller sized go-to bag that i can carry day to day, but also dress up. the brand is one i trust and know will last, so this years splurge knocks off a need and a splurge and i couldn’t be more excited for it to come in the mail!
here are my top 10 holiday gifts for him, under $50. all gifts have been husband approved. in fact, i think he is now expecting a few of these under the tree… so, i’ll see what i can do 😉
$50 and below is a great price point for couples, for a friend or even for a loved one. you don’t have to break the bank to let someone know you are thinking about them. these are all great gifts that any special guy in your life will love!
1. athletic wear | this is a perfect gift for the athlete in your life. or, for the guy who may not hit the gym much, but lives in gym clothes. no shame. when gifting clothes, i like to stick to solid colors unless it is a patterned piece that i know the receiver will love. however, if there’s ever a hint of doubt, stick with solids. you can never go wrong with solids.

as many of you know, i am a newly inducted army wife. and one of my welcoming gifts was a move across the world to south korea. thank you army, you’re too kind.
the challenges one faces when adapting to moving in with your spouse for the first time were only heightened with challenges faced in a new country, where i didn’t know the language and had no familiarity.
not to mention, had no idea where to shop. as newlyweds, we sold off most of our belongings so we could start fresh together. south korea threw us for quite the curveball when we showed up to an empty apartment, empty handed.
through trial and sometimes tribulation i found some of the best american comforts to shop from that yes, deliver to APO/FPO/DPO. for all those that don’t know what APO/FPO/DPO is [ i know i didn’t until it magically appeared in my address,] you can disregard the mumbo jumbo and still find some of my favorite retailers below. if any of you that are locked into an APO/FPO/DPO address have a positive experience with any retailers not found below, please add them to the comments and i will continue to update this list. ps, if the writing is in pink, you can click on it to shop that retailer directly.
