Nordstrom's 'Make It Bazaar' Shop Is Your Antidote to Run-of-the-Mill Gifts
Have you started panicking yet? Not that I'm saying you need to panic or anything, it's just...I mean, you've heard about the whole "supply chain" thing that's turning holiday shopping into something of a mess, right? Well, just in case you haven't, here's the (very) short version: Everything is taking longer than it used to, which means that the best time to start shopping for the holidays was like a month ago. And the second-best time to start shopping for the holidays is right now.
Listen, I'm a procrastinator. I get it. But even if your old move was relying on expedited shipping for gifts purchased at the very last moment, it's not going to work this time around. And even if you find something on short notice—which is a huge "if"—there's a damn good chance it's not going to be something cool or interesting or unique. So now's the time to avoid all that hassle and start loading your digital cart with dope stuff that your gift recipient won't even know they want until you, the smart, savvy shopper that you are, give it to them.
That might sound like it's easier said than done, but I've got good news: Nordstrom's sorted it all out for you. The retailer's latest New Concepts shop-in-shop, dubbed "Make It Bazaar," is built around the idea of sourcing cool, "where'd you get that?"-level stuff that's genuinely interesting, not over-distributed, and sure to put a smile on the face of anyone who's lucky enough to receive it (even if that person is you; no shame in shopping for yourself this time of year). From a freaked-out take on the classic Baracuta G-9 jacket to cozy crocheted hats, fancy incense holders, art-level skate decks, and bags made from vintage Moroccan blankets, "Make It Bazaar" has pretty much everything you need to ensure a truly memorable gift-giving experience. So, Happy holidays—and stop procrastinating. We've been over this.
Bonus: The goods will arrive in time for Christmas.
