Last Minute Gift Ideas at Target {plus Gift Card Giveaway CLOSED}

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED - Winner: Jessie Hay

This post is sponsored by Target

Christmas is less than a week away. Where has the time gone? For so long, Christmas seemed so far away and now all of sudden, it’s just around the corner.

Shopping centres around the country are opening longer hours for those of us with last minute gifts to buy.

And if you’re looking for inspiration and ideas, on what to buy, here are a few gift ideas your friends and family will love - all available at Target:

Young / Pre-School
Young Ones at Target
Fisher Price: Sing-With-Me CD Player
The Wiggles Celebration DVD
Peso from the Octonauts
Dora Singing Star Guitar

Girls (primary age)

Girls at Target

Barbie Flip Out Couch (my daughter is desperate for one of these)
Lalaloopsy Sports Sunglasses
Bubbly Shampoo Lab (younger ones will need some help with this one)
Budons Pencil Case Set

Boys (primary age)

Boys at Target
I’ve been informed by my 6 year old that he wants anything LEGO or Star Wars.

With such a huge range available at Target, you’ll be sure to find something suitable for the boys in your life.

Lego City – Police Dog Van
Star Wars T-Shirt
Spider Man Web Spinner
Lego Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu DVD

Pre-teens / Teens

I think this age group is hardest to buy for. Gift cards are always a good option so that they can go and choose their own things.

iTunes cards are also a great gift if they’re into Apple products.

Teen at Target

Skater Back Pack (I know, going back to school is the last thing on their minds)
Remington Hair Straightener (great compact size)
One Direction Bag Tags
The Muppets Movie (they may think they’re too cool, but will sit through and toe tap – inconspicuously of course)


Women at Target
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding 2 – DVD
Bridie’s Choice by Karly Lane (I am currently reading this book and loving it)
Revlon Luxe Eyes Set
Tube Rose and Gardenia Soy Candle


Men at Target
Lynx Excite Gift Pack
Mr Beer Home Brew Kit
Mini BBQ Grill (is there a man out there who doesn’t love to BBQ?)
Prometheus 4 Disc Collectors Edition


Family at Target
The Smurfs on DVD
Slip n Slide (fun for the whole family)
Coleman Ultimate Xtreme Wheeled Cooler – 47 Litre (perfect for summer picnics)
Pictionary (a classic)

If you’re looking for last minute gift inspiration, I hope I’ve given you some ideas on things to buy.

  3. Thank you for this cool giveaway, I did not even know that Target had an on line store! Awesome! I chose the sheets so that I could cut them up and turn it into bias binding for the charity I am making girls dresses for, Always looking for fabric options!

    1. Great idea! I've used old sheets for quilt backs and binding. They're so versatile.

  4. I'd buy some Lego for my son. He might be 32 but his love of Lego has not diminished! And he has a 29 year old brother-in-law who is just as mad about Lego!
    Thanks for the giveaway :)
