Last Minute Christmas Shopping At Target – $75 Target Gift Card Giveaway


We’ve got such a short time before Christmas and there’s a lot of prepping I have to do over this next week. For my last minute shopping needs I headed to Target. My daughter and her best friend really wanted to buy each other some gifts so we found all of the stocking stuffers which are priced at $4.99 and under. The perfect small gifts for stocking and best friends.

We also needed to look for some last minute gift ideas for my husband and cousins who will be at our house on Christmas so I looked through the food gifts. I found a whole selection of nuts and chocolate covered goodies form Archer arms. Most of it was just $9.99 and under. They make quality and delicious food gifts that won’t break the budget.

I also found that all the books were on sale and found two best selling books that I really wanted to find for my husband. One was 30% off and the other was 20% off. I still think books make the right gifts as long as they’re the right books and Target had so many great books. My daughter also found a few that she’d love for Santa to bring to her stocking.

Since we will be doing a lot of baking this week I also decided to shop the baking supplies where I found everything I needed. I then went on to pick up a few last decor items including a tablecloth and these to go containers from Up&Up. It will be such an easy way for me to send my baked goodies home with family after Christmas dinner.


So whether you need last minute meals, gift wrap, home decor or last minute gifts remember Target has it all. Even better are Target’s little red tags. Don’t you agree Target shoppers?


Thanks to Target one lucky winner will receive a $75 Target gift card.

    I need far too many things to list them all here. Stocking stuffers being the biggest thing and Target is great for that. Our tree ornaments are a little thin this year (due to many getting broken when the storage box was dropped), so I need to buy some extras before Christmas so our holiday photos aren’t embarrassing. Lol!

    Target is like my second home. Anyone that knows me knows I love target! For my office Christmas party we are having a white elephant gift exchange, I knew I would find just what I needed at target. I would say 75% of my Christmas decorations and presents came from target! The only person left on my list is my dad.

  15. Whitney Lindeman says

    We’re leaving for our honeymoon in a week and a half…I know all our last-minute stuff will come from Target!

  16. Joseph Stowell says

    I think the best last-minute need at Target is a gift card. They are great because the receiver can then take advantage of the after Christmas sales.

  17. gigi says
