Mark your calendar: Nordstrom’s annual Anniversary Sale is just around the corner. The official dates are August 19–30, but you can preview the products starting today—and we’ve already started our shopping list.

This year, the event will have more than 1,500 home pieces alone, and the first items are beginning to trickle in. If you’re in the market for new kitchenware or cozy textiles, you’re in luck; from what we’ve seen, these two categories will be standouts. There’s a seafoam green Smeg kettle (your work-from-home office needs a tea station, right?) and sleek Bormioli wineglasses. There are plush organic cotton towels, as well as mustard-colored throw blankets for Netflix marathons. It’s a lot to sift through, so here’s what’s currently on our wish list.

The Textured Touch

Bouclé will be a welcome addition to your roster of sofa cushions and necessary for at-home movie nights and days spent working from the couch. 

Regular price: $50

The Swirly Surface

Your cutting board is a kitchen MVP, coming in handy for everything from meal prep to informal cheese platter dinners. That doesn’t mean it has to look purely practical: A pink galactic-inspired design makes this simple birchwood option a star. 

Regular price: $35

The Happy Hour Mainstay

We predict these blush stemless glasses will be in steady rotation for Zoom birthday calls and balcony aperitifs. Pick up a set of six to have on hand when your next wine club delivery arrives. 

Regular price: $40

The Gallery Wall Addition

Bring a little color to your space with a graphic art print. Try personalizing the piece with a vintage or upcycled frame that you can DIY to fit your aesthetic. 

Regular price: $89

The Splatter-Paint Colander 

Speckled enamelware feels much more special than a mesh strainer—you’ll want to keep this splashy piece displayed on your counter. 

Regular price: $45

The Bar Cart Centerpiece

A decanter is one of those tools that instantly makes any entertaining station (even if it’s just a corner of your kitchen island) feel fancy. This one’s sleek silhouette doubles as a sculptural accessory when not in use. 

Regular price: $70
