Target has always been there for us to lean on when we need them most, particularly around the holidays. From gingerbread house-shaped decor jars to this cheesy Christmas tree ornament and this Christmas berries table runner, you can decorate your home without spending a lot of money. However, if you’re searching for a last-minute gift to snag your best friend, coworker, or your second cousin’s aunt, look no further than Target’s Bullseye Playground. 

The budget-friendly section of the store is stocked full of on-trend products between $1 and $5, but the items certainly don’t sacrifice quality. Instagram account @targetgems spotted new mugs by Room Essentials that will serve as a perfect small gift for anyone on your list — especially pet owners.

The 15-ounce mugs come in various designs like this adorable “Cat Mom” option or “Cat Dad” alternative for the feline parents in your life. You can also opt for a less personalized checkerboard mug, dog silhouette design, or “chaos coordinator” style for a hilarious gift for that one friend whose personality suits the label.

Regardless of your design choice, each mug is currently retailing for $5 at Target. All the mugs are microwave- and dishwasher-safe, plus ideal for both hot or cold beverages. The product reviews are glowing with shoppers obsessing over the designs and raving over the affordability. “Such a cute mug!” wrote one user. “Even cuter in person and only five dollars?!”

Another said, “These mugs are always the best. Cute print, perfect size. Also love that they’re dishwasher safe. Affordable as well!”

And we couldn’t agree more. You’ll want to pop over to your local Target ASAP before these sell out.
