TJ Maxx Haul | May 2021

I love shopping at places like TJ Maxx and HomeGoods because it’s always an adventure. A TJ Maxx Haul can include anything from home items to clothing to skincare and more.

You can find unique items at great prices and it’s perfect for browsing.

Need a last-minute gift but don’t know what to get? Head to TJ Maxx and you’ll likely be able to find something great for your giftee.

I’ve even been able to find clothing items for less than Amazon – same exact brand, item and style. That’s what happened today!

On this shopping trip I did find some birthday gifts, so I can’t share those (we don’t want to spoil anything). But I will share the rest of my finds.

If you’d like a gift idea post, let me know in the comments who you’re shopping for and I’ll get back to you with some ideas.

1. Ponytail Hat

This cute pink hat has a cute little embroidered heart that says ‘love’ and it’s distressed, giving it a comfortable, worn appearance. 

It has a high opening so that you can actually wear it around your ponytail. And it has an adjustable velcro closure in the back. 

The velcro hooks are very small, so I’m hoping they won’t get stuck in my hair too much. Curly hair tends to cling to everything.

Most hats don’t stay on very well since I have a lot of thick hair and they sit awkwardly, so fingers crossed that this one works!

2. Panda Headband

This spa headband is really thick and plush. It’ll be really nice to use for a self-care masking session.

The band is white and fluffy and it has black panda ears on top. So cute!

Pandas just make me happy- the videos if them playing and rolling all over are adorable and guarantee a smile.

3. Manuka Honey Lozenges

My mom found these and got a bag for each of us. Honey is great for soothing your throat – I often add it to tea when I have a sore throat.

These lozenges are made with Manuka Honey and Vitamin C and have a little lemon oil for flavor. The bag has 58 lozenges and the price is lower than at drug stores for lower quantities. So definitely a good find!

They are sweet and taste mostly of honey with just a hint of lemon. It’s nice- not overwhelming with the lemon flavor.

4. Bare Republic Sunscreen – Sparkling Rose

They had me at “sparkling rose.” Don’t you just love sparkles? Me too, so I had to give this sunscreen a try.

It’s SPF 30 and a mineral sunscreen. There isn’t a strong fake coconut scent, which I consider a big positive.

The sunscreen is a pale pink that quickly blends in, leaving only a shimmer on your skin. It’ll be a great addition on pool days. 

If you want to feel like a sparkly Twilight vampire this isn’t that glittery, but is a nice low-key option.

5. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

I received the Laneige Cream Skin Toner for my birthday back in March and love how hydrating it is, so I wanted to give their other products a try.

(It’s so easy to become a skincare junkie!)

This Sleeping Mask came with a little spatula to scoop out the product. It has a creamy-gel consistency and spreads nicely. It seems like a little goes a long way.

This product does have a fragrance, but I like it. It reminds me of a really nice spa. According to Sephora’s website it is orange flower, rose, and sandalwood. 

In my mind it’s what a water lily smells like – I haven’t actually smelled a water lily, but it’s what comes to mind for me. 

This sleeping mask was an Allure 2020 Best of Beauty Award Winner

6. Yogalicious Lux Biker Shorts

I’m really excited about this find. It’s probably my favorite from this TJ Maxx Haul. I had been looking at biker shorts on Amazon and this brand specifically. 

My Yogalicious leggings are so soft and comfortable but also look cute. So I figured their biker shorts would also deliver on the quality, comfort and cute factors.

Thankfully I didn’t purchase them right then on Amazon because I found the exact same set at TJ Maxx! For almost $20 less!

I got the indigo and black 2-pack, but they also had sets with 2 black and black with other colors. 

The shorts have a 5 inch inseam and a thick waistband that has a little pocket in it.

I wore the black ones this morning to walk the dogs and exercise and they stayed in place well. No need to do the adjust-the-shorts-while-you-walk wiggle. 

The fabric is super soft but a medium thickness. It’s very stretchy but does give some support.

Overall I really like them so far. I might have to go back for another 2-pack… hmmm… 4 for less than the price of 2 on Amazon- how often does that happen?!

I hope you enjoyed this TJ Maxx Haul Post!

I’m excited about my finds and looking forward to trying them all. It’s been a long while since I’ve actually done a bit of shopping (except for groceries) and it was fun to go out with my mom.

I’m hoping the gifts we found are enjoyed too. Don’t you love finding the perfect gifts for the people in your life? 

What has been your best TJ Maxx find? Or if you aren’t a Maxxinista, where do you go for awesome deals?
