These days, it’s rare to find one shopping destination that covers every single person on your gifting list. Olivia Kim, vice president of creative projects at Nordstrom, conceived of Nordstrom Holiday Home as well as the new [email protected] to bring together classic department store name brands alongside smaller artisans and shops including longtime Clever faves like Dusen Dusen, Omsom, Susan Alexandra, Beverly’s, Goodee, and more. While the Holiday Home brick-and-mortar opened in NYC in September, the [email protected] shops make their debut online and in select retail locations today. Featuring unique gifts that range from wellness-focused CBD treats to single-use cameras, the goal of the Pop-Ins is to make it easy for everyone to give gifts that will leave their loved ones both delighted and fascinated with new-to-them brands.
From NYC-based creative studios to the brands you might have grown up with, these concept shops curate gifts that add flair to even the most basic home items. Read on for a few of the items on offering that have caught our eye.
