I was recently asked to “pay it forward” to people I might not usually purchase a gift for. Homegoods/TJMaxx/Marshalls are my favorite stores, so when they asked me to shop at their stores, it was an easy decision.
Another easy decision was deciding who to purchase gifts for. I tried to choose items that truly captured my recipients’ character and spirit. My first stop was TJMaxx…My aunt recently lost her husband and moved back home to be with family. It was such a great decision for the rest of the family (we missed her horribly), but I know she gets lonely and misses the life she had.
If there’s anyone who can “embrace the quiet”, it’s her. She appreciates every moment, and I thought this beautiful Noel teacup with some Christmas tea would be just the thing to reflect her appreciation of just being still and taking in her surroundings.
My grandmother is one of those people who just doesn’t need anything. However, she deserves to open presents too, right? I wanted something shiny, sparkly, and beautiful for her to open. Because she’s shiny, sparkly, and beautiful too! Since she’s older and more forgetful, I purchased this and a battery operated candle at Marshalls to put inside. This way, she won’t accidentally forget about the candle, and she can enjoy it without worry.
And finally, my girlfriend is a single mom who never buys anything for herself. I have some white bowls that are similar to these, and she just loves them. Do you think Santa placed them in Homegoods just so I could find them for her? Perhaps. Regardless, she’s going to love them, and that’s what matters!
I could seriously do 90% of my Christmas shopping at Homegoods, Marshalls, and TJMaxx. They have such a variation of items that I never struggle to find something special for that someone special. And because they are so cool (and generous!), Homegoods/Marshalls/TJMaxx is offering a $100 gift card to one lucky winner!
Just share your #BestGiftEver with me on Instagram! Show off all those great items you’ve found, and be sure to tag Homegoods, Marshalls, and TJMaxx too! Happy Shopping!
Those gifts are so cute!

I have found too many fun decor items at Marshalls to name just one. One that is coming to mind is a musical nutcracker I bought a few years ago that my son just loves.

homegoods just keeps feeding my throw pillows addiction, lol. thanks and happy holidays!
I bought 4 of the coziest throws from TJ Maxx as gifts this year…now need to get one for myself!

My aunt was born on Christmas Eve, so her middle name is Noel. That teacup might make a great gift for her. My middle name is Joy, so I have several pieces which say that.
I love the unique-ness of what you can find at HomeGoods and TJ MAXX.

Three of my favorite stores. You just never know the treasures you will leave with. My best gift this season was a driftwood tree…. I had to restrain from keeping it myself. Merry Christmas!
Richella Parham says
Favorite find? It would be hard to say. . . I have one of each of the stores within 10 minutes of my house. But I think perhaps I’d choose some of the great mercury glass pieces I’ve found there as my favorites. Beautiful and timeless.
Thank you for the giveaway!

I found a white serving platter I can use any time of the year. Most of the platters I have are seasonal so this was a great find…
MARY EGUIA says
love the store
My favorite find at TJMaxx was a ha-uge mirror with a beautiful thick frame and the price was a score. Love those stores!
My favorite find was Home Goods itself just one year ago. I don’t know how long it’s been around but I immediately fell in love. From that point I found TJMax and then Marshalls. It’s been one cool ride. Thank you for letting me in on the “secret” 🙂
This is tough…..the best gift ever? I love TJMaxx, Marshalls and Home Goods and have been shopping them for years and have bought many a gift there, not to mention lots of stuff for me too! Lamps and rugs are probably my favorite gift. Many times whoever is the host for Bunco gets all the prizes there! Everybody loves TJMaxx, HomeGoods and Marshalls! What a great giveaway!

I got a winter jacket at TJ Maxx for under $30!!
I love the baskets & organization items!
Love those bowls you are giving to your friend, the color is gorgeous. Home Goods is a favorite store for sure…lots of lovely items for great prices. I have not always been close to a Marshalls but when I have been or TJ Maxx I usually find some really great deals.
Very clever and thoughtful gifts.
I agree that there are so many things to enjoy at all three of these stores. I especially enjoy their linens of all things.

I LOVE all 3 of these stores, and would shop them daily if budget would allow, LOL!! I am lucky that I have a Marshall’s right around the corner, and the other 2 are only a short 15 minute drive… These are seriously my 3 favorite stores!!! I have purchased SO many lovely items from Marshalls, it is hard to pick a favorite, but I did recently get a furry-ish 3 x 5′ rug, with a gray and white chevron pattern, which I going to use in my upcoming/in-progress bedroom re-do!! it’s FABULOUS!! you can see a photo of it on the Marshalls fabfound site – THAT is how much I love it!! LOVE the awesome gifts that you found…your family/friends loved them, I’m sure… (sorry for the longest comment ever, can you tell my love of Marshalls is strong and true, LOL?)
