Nordstrom Holiday Party!

The annual Nordstrom Holiday party time is nearly here! If you a Nordy Club Ambassador status or above, you should have received a party invite by mail or in your email! If you haven’t received an invite, please check your spam. Last year my invite was literally lost in the mail, and when I called my local store, they were able to verify that I was invited and were able to take down my RSVP information over the phone.

I’ve had the good fortune of being invited myself, or being the +1 of an invited guest for several years now. It is always a great time because the store shuts down early (or opens early!) to the general public, and they open it to invited guests with drinks and light appetizers, live music for a festive atmosphere and of course, great shopping with 10 points per dollar spent!

I believe new for 2019, is a 10 point shopping day at selected stores, for all Nordy Club members on Saturday December 7th . This is because not every store holds a holiday party.

Hope you enjoy this year’s party! Happy Shopping!

Matching Family Outfits

One of my greatest joys in life is to put my kids in matching clothes. It doesn’t happen too often because they each have opinions about what they want to wear, but at Christmastime, they will humor me with wearing matching family outfits and pajamas!

With each passing year, I have noticed that retailers are embracing this trend and putting out lots of different options for configurations of families, budgets, as well as giving options of completely matching vs. coordinating outfits.

Here’s a few of my favorites!

Hanna Andersson

If you’re new to the Hanna Andersson brand, prepare for a bit of sticker shock. The clothes are not cheap, but they are built to LAST!!! We have Hanna clothes that have been passed down and still look great. Our PJs have been through the wash countless times and are still looking wonderful. They clearly are used, but they hold up much better than other brands. They also frequently have sales from 25-40% off. However, coupons do not stack.

My favorite pattern for Christmas is Hanna Andersson Dear Deer. So much so, that this year I decided to take the plunge and order matching PJs for my husband and I as well!

Hanna Andersson Family Matching Pajamas – Dear Deer

This line is great because it includes lots of options, from the classic Hanna long johns, to short johns (if you live in a warmer climate, or just prefer shorts!), flannel options, nightgowns, onesies and even something for your pet!

There’s lots of other print options available from Hanna including more feminine ones for Mommy/Daughter matching, character themed matching like Star Wars or Disney, or even just classic stripes!

Kohls – Cuddl Duds

Kohls has a huge selection this year of matching jammies. I really like this set from Cuddl Duds. I love the cute bear graphics and the classic red and black Buffalo plaid print. I love the little name tags like Mama/Papa Bear, Baby Bear and Little Bear.

Kohls also has some really cute matching Disney themed pajamas. I love, love, love these two sets where you can “dress up” as different characters from Toy Story and Frozen!

Amazon – Burt’s Bees

Burt’s Bees has been really stepping it up with their pajama game this year. I remember searching a few years ago and there was hardly anything, but this year they have a few styles for sale on Amazon. I really like this fair isle print, and it reminds me a bit of the Hanna print. If you find the Hanna styles a little too spendy, these Burt’s Bees ones are much more moderately priced.

Besides the ones featured, I know that Macy’s, Target and Walmart also all have family pajamas. One of the trickiest things is finding something for everyone in your family — from the littlest ones who might still be in onesies, to a parent/Grandparent who wants to also join in the fun!

Does your family have any favorites?
