No matter how you choose to ring in the holidays, whether making it festive, adventurous, cozy, luxe, or jolly – this season is all about making merry, together.

This holiday, Nordstrom’s campaign spreads cheer by showing the real human connection through warm and intimate moments shared amongst loved ones in their most personal settings. To capture the authentic essence of real families making merry together, Nordstrom has assembled an exciting cast of notable talent. This season’s campaign stars Grammy and Tony award winning performer, Leslie Odom Jr., and Emmy nominated actress, Christina Ricci, along with their families.

The campaign invites us into the home of Leslie Odom Jr. along with his wife, actress Nicolette Robinson, and their two children as they unwrap gifts, share a warm family meal, and make long-lasting memories together. Showing us their love of getting dressed for the holidays, Christina Ricci makes a fashionable statement alongside her husband, hair stylist Mark Hampton, as they get glam for the holiday party season together and raise a glass in celebration.

The full season’s campaign is rounded out by a diverse supporting cast of creatives, industry influencers, and guest curators including Canadian comedian Lisa Gilroy, style influencers Mordechai and Sara Rubinstein, Merci Milo shop owner Caroline Rodrigues, author and Bonberi founder Nicole Berrie, outdoor enthusiast and Hike Clerb founder Evelynn Escobar, Yowie founder Shannon Maldonado, and canine style icon, Boobie Billie. The campaign, shot by photographer Jacob Pritchard, captures the ways each family celebrates the joyous season. The festive photos and videos will run across multi-channel media throughout the season.
