Holiday Gift Ideas at T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods, Plus A Giveaway!

Win a T.J.Maxx/Marshalls/Homegoods Gift Card at

UPDATE 12/19/14: And the winner of our $100 gift card giveaway is...@saucyfbaby!! Congrats to our winner and thanks to everyone who participated!

With Christmas just days away, it's getting down to the wire for holiday shopping. Luckily there are three spots - T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods - that have amazing gifts at incredible prices, with new additions arriving all the way up to Christmas Eve! Recently the PR team sent me a gift card and challenged me to do a little holiday shopping of my own: The catch was that I had to buy gifts for people (or pets) who weren’t on my original list but could use some holiday cheer. Keep reading to see what I found!

Giveaway details!!

Do you want to do a little holiday shopping, too? Of course you do! I'm giving away one $100 gift card that you can use at T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods! All you have to do is share your personal favorite T.J.Maxx, Marshalls or HomeGoods holiday gift finds on social using hashtag #bestgiftever. Follow and tag me @budgetbabe on Twitter or Instagram for your chance to win. I will select one winner and announce the winner on Friday, December 19th. Open to US residents only.

Good luck!
What I bought:

I'm so grateful to the moms who help organize various activities for us new moms and kids in my area. This chic Jonathan Adler 3-piece desk set ($3.50, original pricetag says $20) at Homegoods and chevron portable iPhone charger ($15 comp. at $30) is a small yet chic token of my gratitude to one of the mommy group leaders!

Now that my son has little friends of his own, I need to add his besties to my holiday shopping list! Wooden puzzles by Melissa & Doug are fun and educational - and I always find them at the lowest price at Marshalls ($9.99, compare at $12.99)

We can't forget about fur babies! I often pick up pet toys and treats for my own boxer at T.J.Maxx, so this holiday I decided to get a stuffed lion and a plush elephant toy for my puppy "niece" and "nephew."

Also at Marshalls, I found this "You are my sunshine" wall art and knew right away that I had to get it for the musician who leads our weekly toddler tunes music sessions - he always starts the set with this song! And he is our sunshine for giving us one hour of pure fun. It was just $10 (comp. at $15.99)...shhh!

Now share YOUR finds on social media and tag them @budgetbabe with hashtag #bestgiftever for a chance to win that $100 gift card! Good luck!!

#bestgiftever I found the BEST ornaments at TJMaxx and HomeGoods at a huge discount - classic Lenox ornaments and whimsical Annalee figures! They make great hostess gifts and gifts for family friends. I love that my TJMAx, Marshalls and HomeGoods are in the same mall here.
