Find the Perfect Father's Day Gift with T.J. Maxx & Marshalls Review and Giveaway!

The people at TJ Maxx and Marshalls have been so wonderful and besides my Spendervention, I got the opportunity to go do some shopping for my papi for Father's Day.

What better places to go shopping for Dad but TJ Maxx or Marshalls. You can find brand names for low prices. Because TJ Maxx and Marshalls are Off-price retailers, that means you never pay full price for all the goodies you will find there.

So on the same day I did my Spendervention I also shopped for my father. It was a lot of fun but there were so many good things I had a hard time deciding what to buy him. This is what I got.
I got dad some great shirts. One was originally $32 and it was marked down to $14.99. The other was only $5 marked down from $25 and it is really nice and he will love it. Luckily, dad doesn't read my blog so he won't know what I spent and will think I paid a fortune. Shhhh!! Don't tell him. I have to admit I was torn. It was either shirts or cologne because my dad loves to wear cologne. In the end, I decided on the shirts.

TJ Maxx and Marshalls are such great stores. I love going there because the deals you find are fantastic. And there is something for every dad. I saw so many cool things that my dad would have liked. They had grilling equipment, some cool tee shirts, some nice dress shirts, laptop bags and so much more. So if you want to find some nice items for over 60% off the retail price for your dad or your hubby or yourself you know where to go.

I had such a ball during my day of shopping. And now you can too. I have an extra $25 Marshalls gift card and it can be yours. Just follow the rules and enter for your opportunity to get a special someone a special gift. When you are done entering here, go to my Spendervention giveaway and enter to win a $25 TJ Maxx card.



The picture is of my dad and my sister last December in Costa Rica. They take such great pictures. Happy Father's Day, papi!!
