Our Top Picks

The legendary Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has been in full swing over the last few weeks, but now, the sale is in its last weekend, and you're not going to want to miss out on these big savings for your home on items that rarely go on sale.

If you're unfamiliar, Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale offers a first look at fall's latest trends and the opportunity to save on beloved basics—at savings up to 40 percent off. Savings can be found across the store, too, with a wide selection of bedding, bath, decor, cosmetics, accessories, clothes, shoes, and more.

We use the sale as an excuse to stock up on cult-favorites and exclusive items that rarely go on sale from the likes of Barefoot Dreams, Ugg, DKNY, The White Company, Matouk, and more. But with prices that cater to all budgets, it's also a great way to stock up on highly sought after gifts well ahead of the holiday season.

So, what are you waiting for? Shop our top picks from Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale below before prices go up. The last day to shop the sale is August 30.

WellBe Embrace Organic Cotton Weighted Blanket

$104.90 (regularly $150)

Weighted blankets are touted for their calming capabilities and can often help ease insomnia, chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and sensory processing as the added pressure encourages the production of serotonin. WellBe's 12-pound organic cotton blanket is weighted with flaxseed (as opposed to micro-glass beads or plastic pellets) to provide soft, even pressure that helps you achieve a more restful night of sleep. WellBe also offers colorful blanket covers specially designed to fit with their weighted blanket if you want to add an element of style to yours.

Nordstrom Hydrocotton Bath Towel

$18.90 (regularly $29)

Restock your linen closet with these ultra-soft, ultra-absorbent towels and washcloths. A unique process leaves the yarns untwisted, creating greater surface area, and a soft, plush texture that only gets better with use. The bath towels are available in nine different colors, so we're positive you'll find a shade that fits your preferences.

DKNY Ripple 4-Piece Bath Set

$45.90 (regularly $64.99)

Ditch the mismatched countertop clutter and go with this pleasing bath set instead. DKNY's Ripple Bath Set includes a lotion pump, soap dish, toothbrush holder, and tumbler with a wrinkled texture.

Zella Live In High Waist Leggings

$38.90 (regularly $59)

If there's one "clothing" item you pick up from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, let it be from their in-house brand, Zella, which makes a legging that rivals its pricey yoga competitors like Lululemon and Athleta at a fraction of the price. The Live in Legging truly lives up to its name; they are the perfect work from home pant, a quick run to the grocery store pant, and of course, for working out. In fact, I have certain pairs designated for dressing up and working out. The high-waist band holds you in and doesn't slip down. They are available in sizes XXS through XXL, and plus sizes.
