Best Gifts (And $100 Gift Card Giveaway)


It happens every year: I think I’m all set and good to go on the gift front, and then I remember that certain someone or gift exchange that I’ve forgotten.  This year I’m determined not to let it happen, and I’m teaming up with Marshalls, T.J.Maxx, and HomeGoods to give you last minute gift ideas for anyone on your list, whether you originally planned to buy for them or not.  First up?  That office gift exchange that always leaves you stumped.  Resist the urge to give that Santa-themed whatever it is, and instead go for a designer crossbody that she’ll be able to use year-round.  I found this bold red version at T.J.Maxx, and at around $50, it’s an easy gift that is sure to please.


For your boss who seems to have it all, you can’t go wrong with giving a little at-home movie night.  A luxe faux fur throw and a gourmet treat are the perfect additions to a Netflix card or movie of your choice.  This combo was scooped up at Marshalls, and with a blanket this soft, it’s sure to become a favorite.


Finally, for those last minute holiday party invites, step up your hostess gift by bringing a loaf of fresh bread paired with delicious jam or preserves.  My HomeGoods store had a great selection of jams and jelly along with this marble cutting board that can be used for so many future parties.

Feeling inspired yet?  Well good news!  One lucky reader will win a $100 gift card courtesy of T.J.Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods so that you can pick out those last minute gifts as well.  Simply follow the prompts below.  Good luck, and happy shopping!
