My Kind of Holiday -- Last Minute Gift Ideas with Target

When it comes to getting gifts for Aiden, I go all in! I purchase them long before the required date, wrap them, and prepare my mind and camera for his reaction when he opens them.

I do the same thing for my niece as well.

For other folks, eh, not so much. I must admit, more often than not, I have a tendency of procrastinating when it comes to purchasing gifts for others.

Like this past holiday season.

I didn't get a gift for Aiden's teachers, my Secret Snowflake at my job, The Guy, or my girlfriend until, uh, four days before Christmas. (Don't judge me! Okay... maybe judge a little bit.)

For The Guy it was pretty easy -- I got him a sweater with the Greek letters from his fraternity. It was sentimental and cute. He loved it.

For the rest, Target came to my rescue. (As always.)

My homegirl is the beauty maven so I checked out the e.l.f. Holiday collection, which was just $17.00 and under. She got her whole life from the nail polish, make-up palette, and brush collection. Not to mention that I got my life too. I'm all about trying out different nail colors these days.

The Secret Snowflake at my job was in luck! The staff and I were only allowed to spend $15 or less on gifts and I scored these fabulous Charisma Flutes 4-pack champagne glasses for under $11. Because, you know, a little something something is always needed after a long semester of educating little children. Happy to say that it was a huge hit!

I kept it simple for Aiden's teachers and got them a hand lotion set for $13.99. As a person who works with little kids all day in a school, I'm constantly washing my hands and constantly putting lotion on so that they stay moist. I love it when someone gets me different types of lotion, especially the calming/soothing ones so I figured this would have been a hit with his teachers.

I'm so happy I was able to run to Target to grab them last minute gift items. And if all my efforts failed, I had a great back-up plan -- the Target gift card, which always comes in handy!

  1. Well I did ALL of my shopping at the last minute because the holidays seemed to creeped up on me this year. One of the main things I absolutely HAD to get was the Barbie Dreamhouse for babygirl.. thank god the Target in my area still had it. How that was possible only a week before Christmas is a miracle lol.

  2. I like The Body Shop Body Butter Lollipop Gift Set idea from
