Nordstrom’s anniversary sale has started, which means hundreds of deals on home decor, kitchen essentials, apparel, accessories, and so much more. The sale started online this morning at 3 a.m. ET and runs through August 9 at 3 a.m. ET; if you’re shopping in person, the sale runs during regular store hours.
There’s an overwhelming amount of deals to be found, but the two major sale categories that make up the bulk of our cart? Home decor and kitchen essentials—naturally. Here are the best home and kitchen deals we’re taking advantage of in 3, 2, 1...
1. Serene House Ranger Travel Aromatherapy Diffuser,
This itty-bitty diffuser won’t take up a ton of space in your living room or even your suitcase, if you prefer. You can let it run for three hours or six, and not have to worry about open flames either.
2. Treasure & Bond Large Acacia Wood Tray,
Endlessly useful as a bathtub tray, charcuterie board, or serving tray, you'll reach for this handmade acacia wood beauty more often than you'd imagine.
3. Peri Home Fringe Pillow,
Your space can never have too many throw pillows, and this fringed number adds just the right amount of movement and fun.
4. Boll & Branch Signature Stripe Sheet Set,
A good night’s sleep is priceless, but good bedding can get expensive. Thankfully, this Boll & Branch set is on major sale. The sheets are silky-smooth and breathable, and the subtle stripes will make your bed look like it’s straight out of your favorite hotel. They’re available in three neutral colors to complement any room, too.
5. Nest New York Bamboo & Grapefruit Diffuser Set,
A diffuser can make your space smell amazing without the dangerous open flames from a candle. This set comes with two diffusers that you can use solo or together for even more fragrance.
6. Click & Grow Smart Garden 3 Self Watering Indoor Garden,
If you’ve wanted to give gardening a try but don’t have the outdoor space or just don’t want to deal with dirt underneath your fingernails, you’ll love this tabletop hydroponic garden. I have one on my kitchen counter growing tons of basil and cilantro, and once they’re done, I’ll switch it over to this 9-Pack Fruit & Veggie Mix.
7. Voluspa Maison Maison Blanc Mini Tin Candle Trio,
I usually pick up a set of these Voluspa candles for myself and another as a gift. They’re cute and they smell great—what's not to love?
8. Be Home Set of 4 Monogram Marble Coasters,
These marble coasters would be the perfect gift no matter the occasion or recipient. The gold inlaid monogram makes it feel extra special—your friends don’t need to know you bought it months before their actual birthdays.

10. Calpak Terrazzo 22-Inch Hard Shell Spinner Carry-On Suitcase,
You may not have needed a suitcase in 2020, but if you’re traveling again, you might want to replace your broken luggage with something a bit more… functional. This hard-side, expandable carry-on from Calpak has multidirectional wheels, two compartments separated by a zipper, TSA-compliant lock, and a waterproof accessory pouch. The fun terrazzo print also means you’ll be able to spot it easily in the overhead bins.
11. Casper Weighted Blanket & Two Pillows Set,
Upgrade your bedding sitch with a weighted blanket and new pillows. The blanket weighs 20 pounds, but when it’s distributed across your body and bed, it won't feel crushing or heavy. Instead, it’ll feel like a soft hug, helping you sleep better.
12. Leeway Home The Full Way 44-Piece Set,
If you just moved into a new place and want to upgrade your dinnerware, this set should do the trick. It has all the pieces you need for four—perfect for a little dinner party, or just when you need a new plate because you don’t want to do dishes.

Stay hydrated with an endlessly reusable Hydro Flask. It helps keep my water cool for hours, and I don’t need to buy wasteful plastic bottles of water either.
15. Nordstrom Hydrocotton Bath Towel,
Towels are surprisingly pricey, but they’re a lot more affordable during Nordstrom’s sale. They’re under $20 each and come in 12 colors, so you can grab a different one for each guest.
16. Sardel Set of 2 Organic Balsamic Vinegar,
Just because balsamic vinegar is a pantry essential doesn’t mean you should skimp on the good stuff. This set includes two beautifully packaged bottles of organic balsamic vinegar from Italy, which you can break up and gift to a friend—or just keep both for yourself.
17. Viking Hard Anodized Nonstick 10-Piece Cookware Set,
While some cookware sets include pots and pans you’d never use, this comes with the essentials you’ll reach for everyday—two frying pans, four stock pots, and four lids. The non-stick coating means you can fry eggs without worrying about them sticking, while the PFOA-free coating means no nasty chemicals.
