I Love This $59 Throw Blanket from Target So Much That I Bought Two

To know me is to know cozy season is my favorite season for so many reasons. I love re-watching classic romance movies and cuddling on the couch with my dogs and my boyfriend. So every year, as the temperatures drop, I pull out a box with all my seasonal essentials — including my favorite throw blankets. Last fall, I discovered a new favorite blanket from Target, and it’s too good not to share because they’re still available this year.

Often times, throw blankets can be pretty modest in size and not always big enough to share. They’re usually just big enough for one person and perfect for a quick nap. Let me tell you though, in my house, all four of us (including my two dogs!) like to lay out on the couch together so the typical blanket just won’t cut it. One of the best things about this blanket from Target is that it’s huge. That’s probably because it’s technically a bed blanket. It comes in two sizes, Full/Queen and King, but honestly either would work. I have the Full/Queen sized blanket, and all four of us are comfortable cuddling underneath it for hours on end.

On top of the generous sizes available, these blankets also come in an assortment of soft, pretty neutral tones like sage green, clay, and natural beige. I have actually two of these blankets: one is neatly folded and laid across my bed for decorative purposes. The other is always readily available on the sofa, and it’s equally as good looking as it is functional. If you aren’t already sold, these blankets are also machine washable, so you can use yours as much as you like. If you’re looking for a nice blanket but have a lower budget, Target also has some decent ones for just $10. If Target is your go-to for things like candles and decor, go ahead and add these blankets to your list, too. You won’t be disappointed.

Here’s Your First Look at Target’s 2021 Holiday Collection

Here’s Your First Look at Target’s 2021 Holiday Collection

‘Tis the season… for holiday collection unveilings! Today Target is revealing its 2021 holiday home collections, which this year, along with their classic Wondershop offerings, also includes their Opalhouse designed with Jungalow line in partnership with designer Justina Blakeney, their Threshold brand designed with Studio McGee, and Hearth & Hand with Magnolia.

Though each of the exclusive brands has its own look and feel, you’ll find pillows, decor, candles, giftables, and more all aimed at evoking holiday nostalgia. In true Target fashion, you can expect great deals, too. Items start at $2 and go up into the hundreds for major pieces of decor and furniture.

If boho style is your thing, then Opalhouse designed with Jungalow should be your first stop for shopping to carry that free-spirited, vibrant look into your space for the winter. Many of the Opalhouse items launched online yesterday, and you can expect 80 new pieces to land in stores by Halloween across the categories of mantle decor, wall decor, textiles, and more, with prices starting at $5 and most items under $30.

“For the Opalhouse designed with Jungalow holiday collection, I wanted to help guests create a warm, cozy and vibrant space that offers good vibes during the winter months as well as fun, festive, non-traditional holiday pieces that work for everybody, no matter how you like to celebrate,” designer Justina Blakeney said in a press release about the launch. Her favorite items from the collection include a dove menorah and a tasseled tree garland, and the range includes 14 other products for Hanukkah as well.

The Threshold designed with Studio McGee line also has launched online and will be available in stores by October 31. You can expect the classic, traditional styling this brand is known for, with more than 70 new items including dinnerware, faux greenery, decor, pillows, and more. “The Target Threshold designed with Studio McGee holiday collection is all about helping guests spread cheer throughout their homes,” designer Shea McGee said in a press release about the line. “With rich and inviting warm tones, a touch of faux greenery and winter scents, I hope the collection inspires guests to cozy up with their loved ones this holiday season.”

Prices for this range start as low as $12. McGee herself is partial to the olive and eucalyptus wire wreath as well as the chunky knit throw in burgundy.

The 2021 Hearth & Hand holiday collection with Magnolia, which also launched online on October 10 and will be in stores at the end of this month, is all about family togetherness and the joy of giving. Looking to holiday seasons past for inspiration, Joanna Gaines translated her farmhouse modern style for the holidays once again across serving pieces, home accessories, greenery, and giftables big and small (yes, there’s another chic dollhouse in this collection).

“Part of the joy and nostalgia of the holiday season is creating a festive space that encourages warm memories and helps start new traditions,” Gaines said in a press release about this holiday line. “Whether baking with your family or hosting friends for a holiday brunch or dinner, this holiday Hearth & Hand with Magnolia collection — available exclusively at Target — was designed to help make the season joyful, meaningful and something we can all celebrate.”

Target will also be bringing back its value decor line, Wondershop, as well as their collaboration with Sugar Paper on seasonal wrapping products and trim. Select items from these ranges are available to shop now, with the full holiday assortment launching on Target.com on October 31 and rolling out in stores starting November 1.

Target is Stepping Up Its Plant Game with a Set of Air Plant Terrariums For Under $13

Target is Stepping Up Its Plant Game with a Set of Air Plant Terrariums For Under $13

We independently select these products—if you buy from one of our links, we may earn a commission.

One of the retailer’s latest offerings is the LiveTrends Beautiful Chaos Air Plants — ideal if you’re after a low-maintenance plant — and it will also add heaps of style to any room of the house. Available in a pack of two, both of the tiny Tillandsia plants are presented in elegant planters with a sleek botanical design, and they certainly look a lot pricier than the retail price of $12.99.

So, just what exactly are air plants? They are epiphytes that cling to the crooks and branches of trees in Central and South America, the West Indies, and southern U.S. There are varieties adapted to grow in rainforests, mountains, deserts, and swamps, but all varieties grow without rooting in soil. Most of the ones you’ll see in stores are members of the Tillandsia genus.

As their name suggests, they absorb nutrients and water from the air through scales on their leaves, meaning no pots, no dirt, and little to no mess. Air plants require very little watering and can thrive in many lighting situations, but bright, indirect light works best. Although an air plant is a tougher, more indestructible plant, care is still needed, albeit not a lot is required.

With its stylish design and low price and maintenance, there’s little to lose and a lot to gain with this plant purchase. And better yet, you don’t even have to walk into a store — the LiveTrends Beautiful Chaos Air Plant (two-pack) is available for purchase online now.

They say the best gifts come in the smallest packages. In this case, they also fit into the tiniest budgets — even a $10 budget! If you visit Target as often as I do, then you know you can almost always find cute little random things to toss in your basket. Now you can add a few of those things to your holiday shopping list, too. If you aren’t really looking to break the budget but still want to give a few gifts this season, Target is where it’s at. These inexpensive gifts are great little gifts for friends, family, and even co-workers.
