Every year, without fail, Christmas just sneaks up on me. While everyone is compiling their wish list and scurrying to the malls on the hunt for Christmas gifts, I’m usually just interested in decorating (lol).
The holiday season seems to be all about taking advantage of the best sales and sometimes “treating yourself”–a lot. This year, T.J.Maxx, Marshalls & HomeGoods have been spreading the joys of bringing back the holiday spirit to the most wonderful time of the year. The #BringBackHolidays hashtag is all over social media and serves as a reminder that being around family and friends and showing your appreciation for them is the hallmark of the holiday season.
Gift giving is a major part of the holiday season and while I always welcome money/a standard gift card with open arms, I have to admit that a thoughtful gift is more memorable. To begin my hunt for meaningful gifts at even better prices, I naturally headed to T.J.Maxx, Marshalls & HomeGoods. The stores were chock full of merchandise and gifting recommendations were abound.
Gifts for the [Budding] Entertainer
When you move into a new place, the urge to host friends and family is insatiable. Someone who has reached this exciting stage in life deserves a few items to help make their place a home for themselves and a home away from home for their guests. T.J.Maxx, Marshalls & HomeGoods have tons of entertaining gifts for the home. Some of my favorites are the reusable wood wine boxes, the Brunch @ Bobby’s cookbook and the ultimate wine-ology handbook.
Gifts for the Person Who Needs a Beauty Break
T.J.Maxx, Marshalls & HomeGoods are home to many exquisite bath and body sets. The vibrant, citrus scent of this Sweet Tangerine Burst bath set will surely be appreciated by the person who needs an energizing and refreshing fragrance to start the day. For continued bursts of energy–or moments of calm throughout the day–the essential oils aromatherapy set is just what the doctor ordered!
We all know–and love–that person that loses things the minute they second they put them down. A trinkets/jewelry dish is the perfect gift for them. If I had some of these dishes around, I probably wouldn’t spend so much time searching for missing earrings and hair pins! The everything dishes will organize some of the chaos in a very chic way. They are available in an array of styles and most include inspiring words and famous quotes.
It took me years to appreciate tea, but now I absolutely get it! The deserving tea connoisseur in your life would love to get a DIY gift basket filled with gourmet teas, complementary pastries and a motivational mug.
What are some of the thoughtful and meaningful gifts on your holiday shopping list this season? How will you #BringBackHolidays?
