Earlier today I went on a little recon mission to TJ Maxx to check out their holiday gift offerings, and ladies, there is literally something for everyone on your list. It was obvious to me within a few moments of browsing the store that inventory is way up. We always hear how TJ Maxx and Marshalls stores receive 10,000 new items each week but sometimes it doesn't seem that way to shoppers. Not so on today's trip. I was just there a week ago and today it felt like a new store. There were festive decorations, curated little endcap displays and special gift displays set up throughout the store - and I do not live in an upscale area, so if my store looks this good, I know your local store has to have something going on, too. Maybe it's because it was a Monday morning, but all the shelves were full, from the gourmet food section to the toy section to the beauty department. With a $50 giftcard in hand courtesy of TJ Maxx, I set out to find the best gifts under $50 for everyone on my list. Hopefully you'll get a few good ideas, too, so keep reading to see what I discovered.
