Holiday Gifting For Those Who Least Expect It!

Whether you’re shopping for your best girlfriends, your boyfriend, your boss, or even your hairstylist, the best part about the holidays is sharing joy through the act of giving. I love opening up gifts as much as the next person (my husband Mackenzie gives particularly hilarious and thoughtful presents), but to me, gifting to others is far more rewarding and fun! That’s why I’m so excited to partner with T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods this holiday season, to help bring back the holidays by focusing on what matters most – people!

This year I picked up some thoughtful gifts for a few people in my life who might not even know how much I appreciate them, and probably won’t expect a gift from me. I stock up on every visit so I can spread some unexpected joy to people who make an impact on my life all year long like the barista at my coffee shop or my manicurist. To make these gifts even more exciting to open, I selected individual wrapping for each, using everything from retro looking red paper with a nutcracker print and a gold ribbon to polka dotted gift boxes with a satin bow. Nothing like being handed a gorgeously wrapped present to make you feel really special! When wrapping, you can’t go wrong with an over the top accessory like a giant sticky bow in lieu of a ribbon (you can even wear it as a hat, ha!). For my own team, I include a small special treat like lip balm or beautifully wrapped soap to tie onto the ribbon and inspire an extra smile before they even open their gift. T.J. Maxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls are great for sourcing unexpected gift wrapping accessories!

I love gifting indulgent beauty products that you wouldn’t buy for yourself, like sea salt scrub or on-trend nail polish. There’s a variety of face masks with my Pilates instructor’s name on them (she’s always asking me for beauty tips)! Thoughtful, unexpected holiday presents are a great way to nurture both personal and professional relationships so don’t forget about your coworkers! There’s a new producer on one of the shows I’m working on and we’re always talking about how we love to lounge, so I got her a plush bathrobe to cozy up in during the festive season.

With such an incredible selection at amazing prices, available at T.J Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods, you’ll be able to spread tons of cheer to your loved ones this festive season. They have meaningful gifts for everyone on your list, and tons of stocking stuffers for the last-minute shopper – cute throw blankets, picture frames, mugs and more. I even got these checkered PJs in the men’s department! Until December 16th, ten lucky winners will have a chance to chat holiday gifting with me and win the perfect gift for that special someone on their list.
