Today's the day we've all been waiting for: Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale 2020 is finally open to everyone — not just Nordstrom cardholders. If you've been patiently waiting to hit "purchase" on items you've added to your wish list back when the preview went live, now's the time to officially finalize the sale.

On the off chance this is the first time you're hearing about the sale, just know one thing: It's a big deal. Not only are there some majorly covetable brands in the mix such as La Mer, Kiehl's, MAC, Clinique, Charlotte Tilbury, Oribe, and Diptyque, but many of the products up for grabs are brand new. Meaning, you can get dibs on sets, kits, and exclusives coming in the season ahead, for some deeply slashed prices. After the last day of the sale, August 30, all sets will return to their original retail prices — so act fast.

Additionally, starting today, there are one-day-only flash deals the retailer will be highlighting, so check back here to see which ones we recommend taking advantage of. The perks don't end there though, because you can also score free gifts with each purchase — including deluxe sample sets and full-size products. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is truly the gift that keeps on giving.

If you don't know where to start, we've rounded up some of our favorite picks for you to shop, below:

P.S. Items will definitely start selling out as the sale goes on, so be sure to bookmark this page and check back for updates.

Make your space a little cozier by switching out your sheets, pillowcases, or bath towels for more plush, luxurious options. Add some zen with scented candles (we're fans of Diptyque) or essential oil diffusers. Whatever you're looking to refresh, we guarantee there's something on sale that'll brighten up your rooms.

For all beauty deals, check out the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives page, and for everything else, check out the general Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale landing page. Shop now until August 30, when the sale doors officially close until next year.
