Was it just me, or did Friday sneak up on us? In fact it feels as if Christmas is sneaking up on us all this year! If this is you, it’s not too late to get your home (or yourself!)  in the holiday spirit …  I’ve pulled some of my favorite holiday images  to get you all inspired and to spread some cheer.

The Gifter :: Gifts Under $20

Tis the season of giving, but with a growing list of gift-recipients it can be really tough on your wallet. This week’s mission for #TheGifter is to uncover fabulous, thoughtful gifts under $20. It may seem like a hard task, but when shopping at HomeGoods it’s quite easy. With an huge array of  high quality products, new items arriving daily and prices up to 60% less than department stores, I spotted some amazing gift ideas at my local HomeGoods store – sharing a few here and on Instagram!

red espresso 3 cup - gift idea

Yep, this top-quality brand name espresso coffee maker in festive red was found at HomeGoods for under $20. In fact, it was less than $10! Makes a perfect gift for the coffee lovers on your list.

drink pitcher - great gift for under $20

This simple, yet elegant handcrafted drink pitcher made in Portugal was also spotted at HomeGoods for under $20. It’s a great gift for the entertainer, cook or newlywed on your list.

bottle brush fox ornament - christmas tree

Fox decor is really hot this holiday season.  So when I uncovered a pair of bottle brush fox ornaments for the Christmas tree well under $20, I grabbed them for myself. They too would make a fabulous gift for co-workers, teachers and friends.

gold + silver decorative storage boxes

The organizer in me was drawn to these chic silver and gold decorative storage boxes – HomeGoods was selling all three for under $20. Fill them with homemade holiday cookies, add a bow and you have a beautiful (affordable) gift that anyone would welcome.

Now it’s your turn to uncover fabulous gifts for under $20! While shopping HomeGoods or other TJX stores, tweet a picture of the items you discover using #TheGifter and you’ll be entered to win a TJX $500 gift card! There is a new winner every week – I’d be over-the-moon if it was a Simplified Bee reader!!!

Happy shopping,
