Cat Deely once said, “I hate last-minute shopping, it’s always unsuccessful.” And she’s so, so right! When I stray and over-spend, it’s always because I’m feeling rushed. One tactic I use to avoid that frantic feeling is heading first to department-style stores to knock of three, four, five items at once. This way, you make a big dent in your shopping list early and feel more in control of the process.
Walmart has already been shopping stop for me, for that reason. I know the prices will be low and the selection will be high. And I’ll always walk out with some stocking stuffers and several gifts in one trip. (And sometimes something for myself — like a floppy hat I picked up last year for $8.)
A Personal Care Gift Set for Everyone
This year, Walmart is featuring a selection of personal care gift sets priced below $20 that make shopping for fashionistas and fashionistos even easier. You can give the gift of style to anyone on your list! These are also a more personal option than gift cards, and good to have on hand for those moments when you get a gift you didn’t expect (thus keeping you from that awkward, “oh I didn’t get you anything” moment). My picks are:
1. AXE Dark Temptation Holiday Gift Bag for $14.88
Body spray, deodorant, body wash and 2-in-1 shampoo plus conditioner in a subtly, spicey scent. What more could a guy need? This set is the right pick for guys who prefer to get ready without too much fuss.
2. Dove Sweet Peony Holiday Gift Set for $14.88
For the fashionista who loves to pamper herself, this Dove gift pack will turn the shower into a sensory experience. Sweet peony is one of my favorite scents — delightful is the only word I can think of to describe it. This set contains a body wash, beauty bar, plus Daily Moisture Shampoo and Daily Moisture Conditioner. I’ve already bought two of these sets for a couple of my favorite gals.
3. Dove Hair Holiday Gift Pack for $9.88
I can think of several women in my life who’d love the gift of good hair days forever! In this set, your favorite fashionista will find Dove Intensive Repair Shampoo + Conditioner and Dove Volume + Fullness Dry Shampoo.
4. TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Bonus Holiday Gift Pack for $9.88
Chrissy Teigen has been repping the TRESemmé system that conditions first and then shampoos. I’m intrigued by the concept, and this set is so affordable, I picked one up for me. You may end up doing the same! You’ll get the pre-wash conditioner, shampoo and TRESemmé Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo for $9.88.
