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!
