It's the home stretch, friends. Decorations are up, parties are popping, and gifts have been grabbed — well, mostly grabbed. You've got a few final loved ones left to shop for, and you've somehow got to do it with the significantly depleted holiday budget you swore to stick to this year. But where should you look for budget-conscious buys that'll still get big smiles upon being unwrapped? Target, of course. And the best part is, you can snag the steals from the comfort of home, because these last-minute beauty gifts from Target will ship to you before the holidays are here at no cost to you. Yes, you read that right.
Last-minute holiday shopping is so stressful, you'd think we as a society would do more to avoid it (you know, by actually being prepared and buying gifts ahead of time). Yet, each year there's an inevitable rush right before the holidays to finish finding gifts for everyone, so you suck it up and prepare yourself to face the crowds. But this year, Target is looking to make this much easier on you.
Head on over to the superstore's site and you'll see a big banner on its homepage with some sigh-of-relief-inducing information: Target is offering free guaranteed delivery by Dec. 24 on orders placed before 1 PM EST on Dec. 20. That's right, free. Shop around the website, fill your cart, and when you check out you'll see a free shipping option to select. Just confirm you see that "Guaranteed by Christmas" banner on each product page while you peruse.
This generous shipping situation means Target's beauty category is an ideal place to check the rest of the skin, makeup, hair, and body care buys off your list, so loved ones feel extra pampered this season — especially considering the affordable gift sets and the free delivery will minimize the impact to your budget.
Grab skin care bundles or discovery kits from some of Target's fan-fave brands, like the Pixi by Petra Best of Vitamin C set, $22, and Versed's Twice As Nice Serum Rolling Gift Set, $17. Skin-soothing sets like the Grace + Tonic Discovery Botanical Skincare Set, $30, and Pacifica Cosmic Holiday Set, $15, are great bets too (especially for fans of naturally-formulated complexion care).
Or, encourage a little self-care as 2019 comes to a close with budget-friendly sets like this at-home spa set from Burt's Bees, $15, or Target Beauty's Sanctuary Foot Care set, $9, with comes with a scrub, lotion, and fuzzy socks.
