When I asked (in this post) what kind of TJ Maxx/Marshalls gift guides you wanted me to feature, the votes were overwhelming in favor of two things: a budget gift guide for Secret Santa exchanges, and one for men. Well, I did both! But while I work on the men's guide, here is the Secret Santa one. For this guide, I wanted to keep everything under $20 and most of it under $10. With the exception of the clutch, everything else was under $10! If you're looking for gifts and you're on a tight budget, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls are the perfect destinations. I actually had a really hard time narrowing it down. I ended up leaving things behind; I found too many great buys!

I did most of my shopping at T.J.Maxx, mainly because I started there and was able to complete my list. It was rather convenient because at the 6th ave location, Marshalls is in the same building! So, I ended up stopping in there anyway, where I picked up the cute little piggy bank (which I ended up keeping for myself) and a pair of shoes for Bobby.

I had such a great time picking out items for this guide, and want to share one of my finds with you. I've decided to give away the clutch to one of my readers. Keep it for yourself or give it as a gift! To enter, simply tweet the following:
