The holidays may be over, but the other 10 months out of the year can still be for treatin' yoself to gifts — and chances are, the ones that may surprise you most will be at Target. Who hasn't walked into the store and seen the soothing red-lined shelves and aisles, begging you to purchase merchandise that is both useless yet also strangely necessary? Or better yet — buying stuff off Target.com and get a free order pick up, without ever leaving the comfort of your home?
I've always been able to resist the temptation, somehow — you could even say that I'll walk into a store with five things on my list I need to buy and walk out empty handed, as opposed to normal people that go in "not looking for much" and come out with 10 bags worth of stuff. But Target? Target is different.
As opposed to other stores — maybe you could say I'm a Target truther — there are always things at this store that inspire me, from anime paraphernalia to something like a trusty mini vacuum cleaner. Forget T.J. Maxx, Ross, Walmart — I swear by Target for my needs.
Below is an assorted list of items that will convert you too (if you haven't been already), so check it twice:
Gaiam No Slip Yoga Socks
Have you ever been in downward dog and been acutely aware that your toes are about to give out beneath you, which would make you fall on your face/definitively ensure you'd embarrass yourself in front of your entire class? These socks can save your butt ... quite literally. Also very handy if you have slippery hardwood floors at home!
Mr. Bar-B-Q Picnic Table Condiment Set
Have you ever been like, "man, I really want a mustard bottle that says 'Mustard' on it"? Look no further than this Mr. Bar-B-Q set, which includes containers for salt, pepper, ketchup, and yes, mustard. It may be the mini-est of picnic tables, but it's functional and cute enough to make "passing the salt" actually fun.
Baby Foot Peel
Dry skin can be tough to cure on your feet. But if you want your foot to be as soft as, well, a baby's, then this unique formula with natural extracts (17 types!) will exfoliate and moisturize your foot. No more blisters, cracked soles, and smelly feet!
Pokemon Pikachu Coin Bank
Susquehanna Glass Trust Me Stemless Wine Glasses
You don't need to drink with your best friends to make questionable decisions — let these wine glasses tell you what to do. All four of them have very bad but very appealing-when-inebriated ideas printed on them. You'll never need to figure out what reckless thing to do again while drunk.
Knit Pompom Wine Holder
Oh come on. Who said that drinking on a night out can't be an intimate occasion? This well-knit holder looks like something your grandma would've knit you for Christmas (if Grandma were okay with your drinking habits, I suppose). Take it out and get compliments left and right, guaranteed.
