For an online pop-up shop called Best Gift EVER, Nordstrom asked some of its favorite celebrities to recommend presents. The gifts range from home goods and beauty products to fun knickknacks like stuffed animals and coloring books. You can see them all here, or filter them by celeb if you’re really only interested in, say, what Bill Nye the Science Guy is getting all of his friends.
What makes the list even more special is the one-of-a-kind personal items and experiences from each curator, ranging from custom Nikes from Mary J. Blige to tea with Chloë Sevigny, with all proceeds going to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the Hetrick-Martin Institute. Below, we pulled out some of the best picks, with explanations from each person.
“These Bose headphones are for those who like high-ticket, extremely loud, and noise-cancelling headphones as much as I do. I can’t live without my pair. As a silver-haired guy, I can say they look great with silver hair. Get some extra cords as stocking stuffers to really hit the home run.”
“I know firsthand that getting men to care for their skin isn’t the easiest thing. Thanks to my better half, I now appreciate a hydrated, healthy face, particularly when traveling on airplanes and moving between drastically different climates.”
“Practical necessities always are the best gifts. And who doesn’t need a fresh pair of perfectly ribbed socks in beautiful colors to start off the new year on the right (and left) foot. Get it? Oh, and the box is so dreamy — you can save small keepsakes in it!”
