Shopping is fun, in part, because you know which brands you’re loyal to. In other words, there’s no second-guessing when it comes to the retailers you, yourself, trust for top-quality furniture, the best home decor, and the most durable cookware. In turn, this is the same reason shopping for others can be so tricky. Even if you know your work colleague likes coffee, what brand do they prefer? Do your in-laws already have a record player? Who’s to say? To make your holiday shopping escapades less nerve-racking, here’s a tip: Don’t bother going from store to store, or site to site, in search of the perfect personalized present for every important person in your life. Instead, keep it restricted to one catch-all retailer that carries a variety of products, and knock it all out in one go. Luckily, Nordstrom has launched a page on its website solely dedicated to holiday gifts, and they’re even divided into interest-based categories! Below, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites that are sure to inspire merry moods.

This weighted cotton blanket is not only the perfect layer for chilly days, but it also makes a statement with its massive knit pattern. It's available in five tranquil colors and three different weights (15, 20, and 25 lbs.). The heaviness helps relax the napper, but there's still a bit of stretch. Your giftee will no doubt use this durable blanket for years on end.

It's not always a great idea to gift clothing because you might get the sizing and style wrong. This Turkish cotton robe by editor-favorite brand Parachute is a good compromise. It's designed to make the wearer feel like they're in a spa environment, and it has a streamlined design that won't offend specific tastes. The robe's gauzy four-ply material is also incredibly plush and soft.

This ceramic candle doesn't just smell amazing (like spiced apple cider!!), but it also looks so cute in its gold and ecru apple-shaped holder. You can also buy it in the pumpkin-shaped maple marsh scent, which also smells delightfully autumnal. Either one would make a wonderful housewarming present for upcoming holiday parties.

Bluetooth speakers are usually a safe gift because, I mean, who doesn't love music? This one by Marshall has a vintage vibe and looks so classy with its golden knobs and details. Additonally, the speaker is compact and waterproof, making it the perfect companion for road trips and other travels.

Why spend $100 or more on a silk pillowcase when this satin cover is only $19 and feels just as luxurious? This is the perfect present for the beauty junkie in your life, as it keeps the hair shiny and frizz-free even after a night of tossing and turning. The pillowcase is available in four dreamy colors and has a zippered closure.

Every foodie deserves a Le Creuset Dutch oven, and right now this one is going for more than $100 off of its original price. The pot comes in 11 fun colors, including a burnt orange and turquoise hue. It's also extremely versatile and can be used for baked dishes, soups, and other types of meals. Additionally, this brand is like the Cadillac of cast iron cookware, so you'll definitely get on Santa's nice list by gifting one of these.

Even if you're on a budget, you can still get your bestie a thoughtful, personalized offering such as this initial jewelry tray. It has a two-tone design that's almost as pretty as a piece of jewelry, itself. The tray is 4" by 6", so although it's super cute, it won't be obtrusive or take up too much space.

Carafes are sophisticated to begin with, especially if they arrive with matching tumbler glasses. This set is particularly striking, though, as it's made from deep indigo-colored glass. If you're trying to really impress someone with your gift, this is the item to go with. The carafe set is also dishwasher safe, so although it's beautiful, it's not impractical.

Waking up is usually one of the most stressful parts of the day, but it doesn't have to be. This alarm clock gives you a peaceful start by mimicking a sunrise — way better than the iPhone clock app. Whereas a regular alarm clock might be a good present to get your enemy, this reading light and sound machine combo is both bougie and calming, promoting better sleep.

Wine friends can get a little pretentious, but you love them anyway. Fortunately, this bottle chiller and tumbler set requires no knowledge of tannins or flavor profiles in order to impress the sommelier in your circle. This set is particularly useful for picnics and other times that call for transporting fragile bottles and glasses. Not only will the wine stay intact, but it'll also remain chilled for hours on end.
