Have a Happy TARGET Christmas!

by Liz Dowling

On a trip to TARGET to pick up a roasting pan and some last minute things for Thanksgiving, the red and green called to me…  I am not a fan of skipping over holidays.  When candy canes were on full display October 31st as I grabbed last minute Halloween candy, it was annoying.  Thanksgiving should get its day without Christmas trees waiting in the wings.  But, on this particular Sunday, I had TARGET all to myself and decided to take a quick stroll through the holiday section.  Here are some reasonable finds for a happy TARGET Christmas!

$12.00 Snow Globe

$2.00 Wrapping Paper and $6.00 Red Ribbon.

$12.00 Snowflake Table Runner.

$9.99 Berry Cone Trees.

$45 Smith & Hawken Wreath.

$2.00 Plastic Holiday Plates.


Gift your holiday cookies on one of these adorable plates!

$19.99 Throw.

$15.00 Holiday Pillows.

$5.99 for a set of two Hand Towels.

$12.00 Smith & Hawken Red Lion Amaryllis kit.

$10.00 Nutty Nutcrackers.

$2.00 Frames.

P1050687  P1050683

P1050678  P1050681
$3.00 – $6.00 Christmas Tree Ornaments.

$20 Holiday Kitchen Rug.

$7.99 Dachshund Salt and Pepper Shakers.

$4.00 stick-on tags

There is much, much more than what I have here.  It is definitely worth the trip!  In fact, I am going to GIVEAWAY some of the things you see here this week on The Wry Home!!!!

Like you Liz, I like to keep my holidays distinct. So today I am pulling out the Christmas decorations, and though I know I have enough, there are some really cute extras I now want to pick up at Target! I also saw some nice things at HomeGoods in PortChester. ‘Tis the Season!

They have great stuff and I was there on an oddly quiet day, so I got to browse in peace 🙂

The only holiday that I actually decorate from love, not a sense of obligation! I have a question though- does Ellen sing?

Elizabeth Dowling December 9, 2014 - 9:36 pm

LOL, Ellen doesn’t sing! She pulled together a “compilation” of her favorite holiday tunes. xo
