You know we love a deal. Especially around the holidays when it’s so easy to bleed money. Which is why we’re psyched to have two of our favorite discount stores, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, here to help us kick off the whole holiday shopping scene by handing over two $50 gift cards that can be spent on gifts, festive seasonal decor, or whatever else tickles your fancy.
We’ve always loved snagging cheap finds for our house at both stores – like the nailhead trimmed ottoman in our bedroom (from T.J. Maxx) and just about every pillow in our den (from Marshalls).
But enough about us. Here’s how you can enter to win one of the two gift cards that are up for grabs:
- PRIZE: A $50 gift card good at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “MAXX ME!” and…
- BONUS QUESTION: …let’s talk about holiday shopping lists. What’s on the top of your list for yourself? And what are you most excited to be giving?
- GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, December 1st at 8pm EST
- NUMBER OF WINNERS: Two
- PRIZE SHIPS: The 48 contiguous United States
- USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here Thursday morning for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…
And our two very lucky winners (as selected by random.org) are… Anna (who’s got her eye on boots for herself and a globe for her bro) and Kellie C (who’s looking forward to the painting and wainscoting being gifted by her husband) Congrats you two!
Note: We weren’t paid or perk’d for hosting this giveaway, we just take them on to reward our lovely readers! See our Giveaway FAQs page for more info. Pics from T.J. Maxx and Marshalls.
I am hoping for a nice watch for Christmas, and trying to prize out of the hubbs what he wants!
My favorite present to give this year will be a handmade skirt for my sister.

Kate R. says
I’m hoping for a pair of black boots…and excited to give football tickets to my fiance!
We’re traveling to see everyone so gas in our tank is our gift to the family. :)
MAXX MEEEEEE!!!!!!!! I really need some home decor items, especially bedding. And I would love to find a gift for the secret santa exchange that we do with my husbands family.
MAXX ME! I am hoping for a sewing machine so I can finally stich up the pillows I made and pull out those safety pins that make the pillows “not so safe.” We are flying my mom in from Europe this Christmas, so that is the most exciting gift we’re giving to her, and to ourselves too!
MAXX ME! I’m getting a tv for Christmas – the one I currently have is so old, it has a VCR built into it!
Christy G. says
Maxx Me! I’m thinking new bedding this year!!

My mom bought me a new winter coat – can’t wait!
MAXX ME! I would love to be able to give/get at TJ Maxx.

Ashley Suzanne says
Maxx me! :) All I want is for my bathroom reno to be finished. I’m most excited for my nephew to open his new snowboard!
I cannot come up with a wish list for myself this year, but I’m totally excited to give my daughter a play kitchen!
Stephanie Messmer says
MAXX ME! I’m hoping to receive anything home decor related. We’re expecting a baby in January and all of her nursery preparation has had me looking into changing up our decor to make the house more like a home!
I’m hoping to find a Samsung EPIC (it looks pretty darn epic) under the Christmas tree, but I can’t wait to see my Momma’s face when my step-dad and I present her with the WorkBox for her office/craft room! (She has been showing us this video constantly since she discovered it: http://www.theoriginalscrapbox.com/catalog/ )
I would like a new refrigerator!! Our came withour house when we moved in 5 years ago…it was kept in the garage. Now…5 years later…I finally started worrying about what was kept in there! Ew.
Can’t wait to give our 4 kiddos some fun stuff for Christmas.
MAXX ME! For myself- some new holiday outfits! For others- I need to start getting creative and think of a few gifts… I love giving the perfect gift!
I’m looking forward to seeing my sister’s whole family decked out in the new PJs I’m giving them! I’m also looking forward to spending time with my family and playing board games. :D
Jennifer O. says
I’m looking forward to buying my husband some cool artwork for house and I would love a spa gift certificate (ahhhh!).
“MAXX ME!” At the top of my list is a new Canon SLR camera and I am most excited about giving a picture that I painted and one that I drew of my neice!!!!
Maxx me! I don’t need anything for Christmas, just looking forward to giving to my boys and watching them open everything! :-)
On my list … I’m looking for a new dining room table and chairs. I moving mid-December too and it’s about time I have a grown-up table and chairs. I’m looking for a wood table and modern chairs for a nice contrast.
I’m excited to find something nice for my parents … not sure what exactly. Maybe a day at the spa or tickets to a concert. An experience they can enjoy rather than just more stuff.
Maxx Me! I’m looking forward to the time off spent with family and friends the most.
MAXX ME!! : ) I lOoove that place!
Can’t wait for all new fresh white bedding, and excited to surprise my boyfriend with Nascar tickets! (haha)
MAXX ME! I would LOVE to get a Kindle for Christmas…Hint Hint to my husband if he’s reading this! It would save me from buying a new book case to house our overflowing paperback collection.
I haven’t even started thinking about a Christmas List yet! My aunt and my SIL keep asking me, but I actually can’t think of anything! Weird, right? I mean, I want plenty of stuff, but nothing I want to wait for! lol
Thanks for offering yet another fabulous giveaway! Cheers!
I can’t wait to give my husband the new skiis he was looking for!
Maxx me! I’d love a new pair of boots.
I am excited to give mugs with silly pictures of myself on them…narcissistic, i know!
MAXX ME! I am super-stoked to receive (hopefully) a micro-plane zester and to give a golf-outing gift card. I love non-cluttery-consumable-force-others-to-spend-time-w/-their-significant-other-gifts!
I hope I get some home decor and a new robe this year for Christmas. I’m looking forward to giving my kids all kinds of presents.
I am just excited about the whole darn Christmas season…as in, I am jumping up and down a little in my seat at work excited!
On top of my list is maternity clothes, or more specifically maternity jeans because I’m outgrowing mine, but I’m too cheap to buy them myself, lol. I’m most excited for a “bag of coal” that I’ve put together for a gift exchange, I’m hoping it gets some great laughs, lol!
Courtney Hightower says
I’m hoping Santa gives me giftcards to some of our favorite home improvement stores. It would be so helpful for us to fix our gate and paint the house. I can’t wait to give my brother his plane ticket home! It’s a big part of his Christmas present!
Maxx me! I’m hoping for a juicer for Christmas. I’m excited about giving my baby a little red Schoenhut piano for his first Christmas.
i’m giving my husband his third I-pod in like 5 years..I don’t know what he’s doing with those things, but he cannot keep one alive for anything.
Maxx me! There’s no single gift that I can’t wait to give. I just can’t wait for the look on my kids faces Christmas morning, and that’s the best gift I will receive all year!
