Take the Stress Out of Christmas Shopping (+ a $100 Gift Card Giveaway!)

Watch out everyone, the holiday season is upon us!  Every year, I have the best intentions when it comes to planning and buying Christmas presents for friends and family.  I always say that I'm going to have my list done during the summer, with all of my shopping finished by early fall.

And y'all, I don't think that has actually ever happened.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be finished with Christmas shopping before the season ever starts.  Wouldn't it be nice to take all of the responsibility out of the holiday season and just have the fun parts?  But at least for our family, that's just not realistic.

So instead, I rush around like pretty much everyone else during the holiday season, trying to find that perfect present for everyone I know.  It can be kind of a daunting task.  Luckily, I always like to keep a few stand-by presents in the back of my mind that would work for anyone!

Of course, everybody knows that Walmart is the place to go for all kinds of holiday presents under one roof.  A huge variety of one of my favorite stand-by presents can be found at Walmart: popular everyday fragrances.  You really can find something for everyone in Walmart's fragrance aisle.  It's a one-stop-shop to knock out that ever-growing Christmas list. Here are a few of my absolute go-to fragrances that are available at Walmart!

fantasy BRITNEY SPEARS™ is an iconic fragrance, and there's a reason for that: it's a timeless fragrance that is great for everyday use. It has a light fruity, slightly floral scent that isn't overpowering.  I'm actually wearing this one as I write this post.  If you have a lady on your list that might need an everyday pick-me-up, this is the perfume for her!

Pink Friday Nicki Minaj is a great perfume for the playful, party girl in your life. It's a floral fragrance that has just a little bit of a musk.  If you know a teenager or young adult that might want to try a new scent, this would be a perfect present!

Do you have a One Direction fan in your life? You and I One Direction (their signature perfume) would be a great present for her. It's a muskier scent that is great for fall and winter.  This would be a perfect starter bottle of perfume for a preteen or teenager (there is even a detachable charm included with each bottle as a keepsake). 

These and many other varieties of fragrances are available both in-store at Walmart and at  Many bottles range from $15-30, making them the perfect gift for so many different people in your life.  Finish up that Christmas list early...head to your local Walmart and check out their huge selection of fragrances today!
