Here’s how this works!

A confirmation screen will appear, asking you to confirm that you want to spend your Nook Points on the item you’ve selected. Tap “Ok” to finish your purchase.

From there, your item will be delivered to your mailbox in New Horizons. Look for a letter from “NookLink Admins,” which has your item attached as a present!

And that’s all there is to it! Have fun with your new items!
