Off the Rack: 32 Last Minute Holiday Gifts at T.J.Maxx

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!

Introducing Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Lotion, Plus My Winter Skin Challenge!

Winter weather can wreak havoc on your skin, so when Vaseline invited me to take their Winter Skin Challenge, I said bring it on! For the challenge, I'm testing out Vaseline® Intensive Rescue® Lotion - a powerful and therapeutic moisturizing lotion that not only feels good, but also has been proven to relieve dry skin after just one use and help heal dry skin in three days.

After one use of this silky smooth, fragrance-free lotion, I'm already a fan – but to truly put this product to the test, I'll be heading to my local ice skating rink where I'll subject myself to extreme cold, high winds - and hopefully some hot chocolate (preferably with marshmallows). Included in my winter challenge kit was a gorgeous camel Michael Kors scarf and matching gloves to keep me cozy in style. Stay tuned to see how it goes!

Also, check back for your chance to try Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion – I'll be giving away 5 amazing prize packages consisting of Vaseline Intensive Rescue Lotion and Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.

Rebeca Raney for Madewell

Madewell has teamed up with Brooklyn artist Rebeca Raney for a charming collection of items featuring her whimsical illustrations, from a silk tee ($125) to notecards ($6.50). "My work is a lot like frosting - it's sweet and it's really lovely," explains Rebeca in the video above, which gives fans a glimpse into her workshop and creative process. I love Rebeca's bright color palette and playful designs, it's refreshing to see (even if the tote is priced a bit steep at $225 - artists gotta live, too, right?) Head over to to see the complete Rebeca Raney x Madewell capsule collection.
