It might not seem like it now, but the weather will be cooling off before long, which means it will be time to make a few changes to stay warm and cozy. That’s why it’s great that Nordstrom’s Summer Sale is still on — at least for now. The sale ends on September 12, so you’ll have all weekend to peruse and score up to 60 percent off bedding and bath, kitchen items, decor, and more for the home. There’s also sleek and stylish luggage on sale if you’re planning to take a trip in the coming months. However, if you’ll be spending more time at home in the second half of the year, chances are you’re shifting your focus to gifts and home essentials. You’re in luck: Nordstrom’s Summer Sale has plenty of options for gifting your loved ones and treating yourself. In fact, my must-have buy from the sale happens to check off both boxes with ease, and it’s 50 percent off for a limited time.

With fall on its way, now is the perfect time to stock up on cold weather bedding before everyone else starts looking and prices go up. Rather than piling up your linen closet with thick comforters, go the layering route, trust me. Casper’s Matelasse Blanket makes an excellent bedding layer because it adds warmth without bulk and can be used all year long. Matelasse blankets have even converted some AT staffers into fans of lightweight bedding and saved hot sleepers from overheating in the middle of the night. I’m both a hot sleeper and someone who loves to curl up in a blanket no matter the season, so this breathable blanket at this price is a HUGE  find that’s worth every penny. Especially so, since it comes from editor-favorite brand Casper.

The Matelasse Blanket is available in two colors at Nordstrom: Cream and Olive. It’s made from super soft 100-percent cotton and woven in a delicate texture that will instantly upgrade the coziness of your bed. The blanket also makes a wonderful gift, whether it’s for the holiday season or a special occasion in the spring or summer. That versatility is one of the reasons I chose it as the one item you must buy before the sale ends. It comes from a trusted brand, you won’t overheat, and it’s an effortless year-round linen. Plus, since it’s on sale, you’ll save money in the end with all the mileage you’ll get out of the blanket. What more could you ask for?

Buy: Casper Matelasse Blanket, Full/Queen, $99.50 (normally $199)
