I’ve had a great time compiling gift guides, this holiday season – and I’m extra excited about the ones I’ll be posting this week. In addition to my regular guides, I’ve partnered with TJ Maxx and Marshalls to create gift guides tailored to what you want to see.

I’ve been a TJ Maxx and Marshalls shopper my whole life  – I am the daughter of a major bargain hunter, after all. Besides all of the clothing and shoes I’ve gotten from there, I’ve also scored a set of DVF luggage (a birthday gift from my mom), my favorite hair products, perfume, a bright pink laptop bag, sheets, towels, frames, bow ties and belts for Bobby…the list goes on. They’re basically one stop shops for holiday shopping, which also makes it perfect for last minute gifts. I can’t tell you how many times I have ended up at TJ Maxx with my mom, on Christmas Eve. Pretty much every single year.

What I want to know from you is, who is left on your shopping list? What kind of gift guides would you like to see? I’ll be hitting up the stores to do some of my own holiday shopping, and compiling a couple of gift guides based on your selection.

To sweeten the deal, I’m giving away four $25 TJ Maxx / Marshalls gift cards to randomly selected commenters. All you have to do is let me know what kind of gift guide you would like to see!


I’ll be accepting entries all day, and choose the winners tomorrow – that way your gift cards will be in the mail this week!

Update: The winners are Lindsey H, Kelly at Blackdog Finds, Hotsy Malone, and Cabootique
