Makeover Your Gift from Sam’s Club

by Nicole on December 20, 2012

Sam’s Club has a ton of awesome gifts for everyone on your list! While most people head to the mall and fight the crowds go to Sam’s Club where you can find a great selection of affordable and fun gifts!

A creative way to gift give is to give the gift a “makeover” using some of these fun tips provided by one of the Sam’s Club Holiday Cheer Guides, DIY-expert Brooke Peterson:

o Make it a Group Thing: The secret to making your recipient feel like their gift has been thoughtfully selected just for them is to group smaller items together. Is there a wine lover on your list? Select an attractive bottle of wine, several classic or artistic wine glasses, a book on wine pairings, and tie it all together in a wine bucket. Are you shopping for a tech lover? Pair smartphone-ready gloves with iTunes® gift cards.

o It’s All in the Presentation: Add a personal touch to holiday gifts by wrapping them up in a way that says you care. Consider using a decorated tree ornament instead of a bow, or top off a gift box with homemade or pre-packaged cookies or candy.

o What’s in a Name?: Nothing is quite as personal as a monogrammed gift, but who has time to order a name or initials during all that holiday shopping? Avoid lengthy wait times by creating your own monograms DIY style. Stop by your local craft store for some iron-on lettering, apply your gift recipient’s initials or name to a cozy throw blanket, hand towels or even a reusable bag and, voila — you have a thoughtful gift in minutes.

o Pamper Me: Delight the overworked friend, co-worker, loved one or spouse with a luxurious and inexpensive DIY spa basket. After all, who doesn’t love a little pampering? Just assemble candles, bath salts, soft towels and relaxing music in a modern or classic basket – top it off with a hair band and cozy slippers to give the gift of relaxation in no time.

o The Gift of Choice: According to a recent survey by Sam’s Club on holiday cheer, 51 percent of American consumers cite gift cards as the number one last-minute gift—but you can easily make it more personal. For instance, consider pairing a gift card to your recipient’s favorite restaurant with a bottle of champagne or wine and a homemade coupon to babysit the kids for the ultimate date night gift.

As you can see from the picture above I opted for the last option for some good friends of ours! They have twins and pretty much have everything one could possibly need – except time alone together! So I got a Target giftcard for them and paired it with a bottle of champagne and a cute homemade coupon good for a night of free babysitting.  This gift will probably be worth more to them than anything else!

Make sure to check out Sam’s Club for fun gifts that you can give a makeover!
