Wouldn’t it be nice if people just told you what they wanted for the holidays? My rule of thumb for when you’re truly stumped about what to buy someone: You can never go wrong with quirk. A levitating planter or a fancy mini espresso machine is way more memorable than, say, a generic pair of mittens. Nordstrom knows this, which is why its new Bright+Merry Pop-In is full of unusual little presents for everyone in your life.
Merry+Bright is the latest pop-up space within the retailer’s Pop-In@Nordstrom series, a collection of items specially curated by the company’s Creative Projects VP, Olivia Kim. It’s also the first pop-in to land as a physical space in New York City.
Until January 6, shoppers can visit the Nordstrom Men’s store on 57th street for a very colorful and quirky selection of gifts. From the obscure (like painted, wooden dolls and a miniature eggplant puzzle from Areaware) to the kitschy-yet-useful (like a luxe seltzer maker or a fancy USB hub), there’s hundreds of gifts to choose from. Rather shop from the comfort of your own bed? Don’t worry, you can browse the pop-in online. Scroll below to see a few of the gifts we have our eye on.
