Christmas came early to the Dollar Spot at Target this year.
I may or may not have clogged in the aisle when I saw all the Christmas.
The Target team members were pulling them out of their carts and putting them into the bins in the Dollar Spot and I was grabbing them and putting them into my cart.
I couldn’t help it.
It was ALL SO AFFORDABLE.
I wish you could have been there.
I wish you could have brought your cart right alongside mine.
So here’s the next best thing.
I’ll show you what I got and then you can stop by your Dollar Spot on your next shopping trip.
(total aside: I really wrote this post because I got a new camera lens yesterday. I couldn’t help myself. I wanted to see how it worked and all that Christmas stuff was just sitting on my dining room table.
And the best part?
It makes all my dollars I spent look like a million bucks).
1. These trees
They come in two different types and they are about 12″-14″ tall.
But the cutest thing is those wood stands.
They have galvanized metal edging with a wood box.
2. These stocking holders
They are really heavy and substantial.
The stocking holders come in two different colors. This black and I think a white or gray? The black looks like a basalt tile kind of and the wood is real wood.
They look really high end and would be so cute with a monogram or a letter glued to the front.
3. These wood tree ornaments
They are really nice quality for $1.
I think they’re about 5″ long.
The edges have this burnished gold treatment on them.
At the top, there’s a hole with a loop of jute twine to hang on the tree.
4 & 5. These felted wood buckets
Best find ever.
These buckets come in a plaid with faux leather handles.
A gray with faux leather handles.
A black with faux black leather handles.
They are a nice size (about the size of an ice bucket) and would be perfect for holding Christmas cards or putting a Christmas tree in or wrapping a present in.
6. This row of tin houses
These houses come in two colors.
White and galvanized metal.
They unfold and stand alone by themselves on the table.
They would be perfect on a bookshelf or a tabletop or a cute centerpiece for the dining buffet.
7. This tiny tin house
This house makes anything cuter.
You could hang a single ornament from the top.
Or a jingle bell.
Or you could place a bottle brush tree inside with a Christmas tag.
8. These star ornaments
These are a version of the trees except white and silver.
The wood is distressed and the edges have a silver glitter.
There’s a hole at the top with a piece of jute twine.
9. This roll of boxwood garland
This a Dollar Spot staple.
I buy it every year and make tiny wreaths.
They make great place card holders and present toppers.
You can even wrap them with wire and make a monogrammed mini-wreath.
10. This fuzzy hat
One of the twins, Whitney, had to have this hat.
She was wearing braids in Target and drinking Peppermint hot chocolate and it looked perfect on her.
The fuzzy topper is so soft.
There were so many other things—especially if you like color.
I just bought what worked with my Christmas this year.
The best part of this post though?
That camera lens.
Didn’t it do an amazing job of making everything look extra Christmasy?
I can’t wait to see how it tackles Christmas lights.
Merry early Christmas shopping to you. 🙂
