Classic Gift Idea: Affordable Perfume or Cologne

If there’s one gift that I know I can ALWAYS give my husband that he will never, ever complain about, it’s cologne. The man likes to smell good, and I have to say, I have greatly benefitted from this particular characteristic over the years. Honestly, he goes through a bottle of cologne pretty quickly, so as much as he loves the pricey department store stuff, it just doesn’t last long enough to justify the price most of the time.

This is why I’m a fan of the Walmart Fragrance Center. You can get great, well-known brands and celebrity fragrances for a fraction of what you’d pay elsewhere. Walmart sent me this Stetson set as an example.


The price is just $8.98 for a bottle of cologne and a tube lotion. My husband likes musky, manly fragrances like this, and you couldn’t beat the price with a bat. But just in case you’re not convinced, it gets better. Visit the Fragrance Center at and take a fun quiz to help you discover your “shopping style.” For your effort, you’ll be rewarded with a coupon for $4 off any fragrance item $14.88 or higher.


Even if you’re not into classic fragrances like Stetson or Nautica, you should still be able to find something that appeals to you at Walmart and on the Holiday Fragrance Gift Center at You can grab the scents made by your favorite celebrities, from Beyonce to Celine Dion and Katy Perry, all at a price that won’t make your pockets cry.


So, who do you plan to surprise with the gift of fragrance this year? Are you looking for a specific scent?
