T.J.Maxx has been boasting in their TV ads that their stores are adding new items every day until Christmas Eve for all of us last-minute shoppers, so I headed to my local store two days ago to see what I could find. While I can't disclose exactly what I bought lest friends and family are reading this, I will say that I saw a ton of great gifts and stocking stuffers for the style-conscious persons on your list - ranging from about $3-$50. I saw top brands like D.L. & Co. candles (sold at Barney's NY), Rebecca Minkoff, Philosophy, Caldrea, Marc by Marc Jacobs, and Donna Karan. I swear, there's nothing special about my store - you just have to look carefully and be very thorough as you check the racks and jam-packed shelves! So keep reading for 32 great last-minute gift ideas that I spotted, hopefully you'll get an idea or two!
