27 Best Home Deals to Snag From the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 That Will Give Your Home a Pick-Me-Up

A little birdie told us that you're tired of your boring old tea kettle. So consider this 2-quart option, with a black-and-white hand-painted print, to instantly add pizazz to your kitchen. Its steel frame, ceramic glaze and bronzed stainless-steel rim ensures that it boils water to perfection, while its pretty wooden handle and lid adorned with a faux-cinnabar bead make it worthy of showing off on your stovetop.

Your go-to pitcher will take a backseat to this floral-adorned beauty that turns any occasion into a summer garden party. It has a 3-cup capacity to hold whatever you're stirring up: lemonade, iced tea, fruit punch, etc. And despite its glazed steel underbody, it's even dishwasher-friendly (although you may want to hand-wash to keep those hand-applied botanicals looking fresh for longer).

At 8.5 inches high, this special utensil holder is extra-tall for a reason: to fit even the longest of your wooden spoons and spatulas. The delicate grey checks are hand-painted by artisans, so even if you buy two of these holders, they'll each be one-of-a-kind. In that case, it could be a cool gift idea for that friend who always hosts impromptu dinner parties.

4. MacKenzie-Childs My Mug


With elegant packaging and an affordable price tag of just $19, this dishwasher-safe ceramic mug is by far the most giftable item on this list (although you'll probably want one for yourself, too). And yes, it's available in various monogram options, so you can match up the letter with your or your giftee's initial. The eye-catching black-and-white pattern is what makes it a winner, and likely the reason it'll become their new go-to coffee mug or pen holder.

Whether you want a dedicated container for cotton balls in your bathroom or spices in the kitchen, this set of three hand-painted and glazed canisters will get the job done. And they'll look good while doing so, might we add. Plus, they have a silicone seal lid to ensure whatever's inside stays secure until you open it up from the pretty glass knob.

Take a walk on the wild side with this indoor-outdoor floor mat, which clocks in at 2 feet 6 inches wide and 8 feet long, so it can easily cover a hallway. Better yet, it's made of slip-resistant vinyl, which will prove useful in high-traffic areas. The leopard print and checkered border are obviously the main attraction here, instantly adding a funky, retro vibe to your space. P.S. You can easily wipe it down with warm water and soap to keep it looking as good as new.

The playful spotted butterfly motif printed along the edge is what originally sold us on this wall mirror. Once we found out that it can be hung horizontally *or* vertically, thanks to the D-ring hardware attached at the back, we couldn't resist. So, really, the discount is just a cherry on top. And just so you know, the mirror is 14.75 inches wide, 43.75 inches tall and 2.5 inches deep, so you shouldn't have a problem fitting it in the corner of your bedroom, living room or near the front door.

We saved the best for last (in the brand's most popular checkered pattern, of course). If you've been searching for dinnerware that will instantly upgrade your tablescape, look no further than this set of four glazed-steel dinner plates. Wondering how they look this good? Well, they're hand-painted and glossed with a hint of jewel-tone shine, so just thank the artisan who created them. Boasting a 10-inch diameter, these babies will also leave plenty of room for your guests to grab seconds.
