I often tweet about my Chinese aunts’ obsession with TJ Maxx– when they arrive to the US from Asia, one of the first places they want to shop at is TJ Maxx/Marshalls (followed by Neiman Marcus and Hermes of course, there is a method to their shopping madness!). This season we partnered up with TJ Maxx/Marshalls and I was asked to shop holiday gift ideas at my local TJ Maxx/Marshalls (hello, I’m already a regular there and was in and out within 20 minutes) and share them with you. The problem is, I want to keep all the beauty things I found! The best score this week was the T3 pink tourmaline blow dryer I’d been wanting to get (retail $100) for $49. The beauty section is expansive and offer everything from tools to products (my favorite beachy wavy hair helper from David Babaii for Wildaid was half off so I stocked up on that too). My Pup Snob, Yoshi, also got his “First Christmas” outfit ($10.99) plus a doggie treat basket for his neighborhood besties. The huge beauty basket was intended for a girlfriend but I may keep it for myself– full of candles, bath salts, oils and lotions and potions all wrapped in a big leopard fabric basket that I can use for storage later. My 3 month old goddaughter will be styling in these adorable outfits and will love chewing on her new toy. I got all of the above (plus two hats for myself, heehee) for under $200!
10,000 items are delivered weekly during this holiday gift season including designer fragrance gift sets (for him and her), designer bags (Prada and Gucci anyone?) and clothes, glitz and glam jewelry, the hottest tech gadgets, toys, chocolates from around the world and even festive holiday décor. There is a wide variety of great last minute gifts to choose from, all the way up until Christmas day! To help cross out a few items on your gift list, TJ Maxx wants to give you a $100 giftcard to use at any location.
I love giving scarves as gifts, they don’t require sizing and are an instant wardrobe booster. The shearling boots are perfect for the chill in the air and you can not go wrong with a pair of colorful leather gloves (an easy way to wear the color block trend without a big commitment).
We all have a friend who is the expert entertainer, she can always use more pretty crystal vases/bowls, silver/copper servers or sparkly photo frames!
What’s better than a sweater for dad and cute accessories for mom?! You will not believe the bag selection at the TJ Maxx in NYC– Prada, Gucci, Dior, Kors,– it’s every fashion editor’s “not so guilty” pleasure!
