No matter how early you start your kid's back-to-school shopping, there's always one thing you end up forgetting to pick up (like a rain jacket and sweatpants for when the weather gets nippy.) This is where Nordstrom comes in. The retailer has a vast inventory and is our go-to for any and all last minute needs.
From functional backpacks to water bottles and comfy shoes, you can find it all in stores and online. On that note, Nordstrom offers fast shipping (some items are eligible for next-day and two-day shipping for a $12 to $20 fee), and it has an incredible return policy as well. (There is no time limit, people!)
