Just when you think you couldn't possibly spend any more time shopping at this major retailer, they are now offering free shipping and affordable gifts for the holidays. They are just trying to keep up with the other guys in a high paced competition for your holiday dollars and I think we all win. Target has made it easier to find that perfect gift for someone on your list without breaking the bank. I know when I shop at Target, and I do plenty of holiday shopping there, I don't want to be overwhelmed by all of the stuff they offer.

Target is announcing a couple of ways to do just that. They are introducing four special collections for women, men, kids and teens which have over 1700 items exclusive to Target and under $15. These sets have everything from grooming and stationery to hundreds of stocking stuffers. You will be able to find them in the main aisles and departments inside their stores and online at Target.com

Target is also introducing GiftNow at Target.com. This is a really cool service that I will totally take advantage of. It takes all of the guesswork out of finding the perfect gift, right down to size and color. It allows gift givers to click the GiftNow button and send an e-gift box. Then the recipient is allowed to accept the gift, change the color and size or choose something entirely different before it even ships. This is perfect if you are like me, a last minute shopper.

Target has announced that in order to compete with Walmart and Amazon, they will be offering free shipping for the holiday season beginning in November.

Oh great, like I needed more reasons to spend all of my money at Target. This will surely help with my gift giving this Christmas.
