The Secrets to Shopping Target

Following my mantra of stressing less this holiday season, I’m all about easy gift shopping to whip through my list without checking it twice!

Enter Target, which is literally making it the easiest place to shop. I thought I knew my way around with my red cart (I’m known to run about and do squealy wheelies!), but wait until you hear of ALL of the different delivery and pick up services available. Some of them were news to me! So I’m sharing them so you can save time and as always, get great value.


  1. Free 2-day shipping on hundreds of thousands of items. No membership or minimum purchase required!

  2. Delivery to your car! What? That’s right. Log onto the Target App, select your gift or qualifying items and choose DRIVE UP, drive into the Target parking lot and your order will be delivered to your car in less than two minutes. TWO MINUTES! Can we say fastest Target run ever?!

  3. Too busy to leave the house? Target offers same-day delivery with SHIPT, so you can get things like groceries, treats, gifts and decorations, delivered to your door in as soon as one hour. Game changer!

  4. Let’s say it’s Christmas Eve and you haven’t shopped. Don’t panic. Go to Target.com, order some of the season’s hottest toys and stocking stuffers and select ORDER PICKUP, and your items will be ready and waiting for you at the store, usually within an hour. Leave it to the Target elves!

  5. This might be my favorite as it’s what I call the customized gift: let’s say you want to send your sister a new sweater, but aren’t sure about her size (and you don't want to ask her!). You can find one on target.com and send it through the GIFTNOW feature. She can select her size and color or choose a different sweater entirely and have the gift shipped directly to her. You can do this it any time, even Xmas Day, and this way she gets exactly what she wants.


There you have it. The Bullseye Dog gets it done!
