If it feels like Nordstrom’s Holiday Deals Event has been going on forever, you’re not totally off. A few weeks before Black Friday, the retailer announced that it would be slashing prices on hundreds of highly giftable products throughout the holiday season. Although it originally claimed the sale would end in early December, we’re still seeing a ton of actually nice products being added to the sales bins. We’re still keeping tabs on the sale and will continue to meticulously scour the clearance bins to the bring you the best newly discounted products — as well as update prices and do stock checks along the way.

Most things will arrive by Christmas, so you still have plenty of time to shop — but we still recommend that you don’t dillydally if you see something you like. Scroll down to see all of our picks, so far, or use the links above to jump to the category that you’re most interested in. And you can see everything on sale by clicking here.
