13 Last Minute Gift Ideas from Sam’s Club

It’s 7 days before Christmas, and if you haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet, you might be me in panic mode, however, fear not!  I’ve partnered with Sam’s Club  to share last minute gift ideas for the different people in your life.  If you’re like me, you probably think of  giant bags of sugar, bulk foods, and samples; however, Sam’s Club is more than that; it’s actually a great source of last minute gifts!

When I asked people what they think of when they think Sam’s Club, the answers were all pretty much along the same track:

  • bulk foods
  • pretzels
  • pizza
  • birthday cakes
  • concession stand supply store
  • samples, samples, samples!

Fair enough, right?  That’s probably what you think, too.  I bet that you never thought of Sam’s Club as a place to get Christmas presents for friends and family, though, did you?

Well, you should rethink that, because Sam’s Club is a fantastic place for last minute gifts!  Nathan and I had a great afternoon of snacking, shopping, and gift buying – you know you’ve been married a while and have kids when a great date afternoon is spent shopping and sampling. One of the things that I want to give a big props to them for is their customer service was great, but not overwhelming.  We weren’t stalked by salespeople, but there was no shortage of employees available to answer questions, help direct us, or get something down for us.  Kudos, y’all.

Do you know someone who loves to cook? Maybe a newlywed or college students just building their kitchen supplies up? This 2 piece Kitchen Knife set would be a fantastic gift!  Color coded knives for different uses, knife covers, and  kitchen shears! They also have great pots and pans sets, kitchenaid mixers, dishes, cutlery and more!

and charging towers that will charge multiple devices at once!   We make the kids surrender all devices at 8:30 each night, so one of these would enable us to charge all the devices in our room easily.

If you have a Harry Potter fan who might not be ready for the original books yet, or just a big Harry Potter fan ahem ME! This new illustrated Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone is a great gift idea!  We bought this at Monkey’s book fair this year and both kids have fallen in love with it; I wish I’d known Sam’s Club had it at a much better price! Now that I know they’re carrying them, we’ll be getting them from Sam’s Club when each one is released.

I love decorating our house with pictures of family and friends, and Sam’s Club’s photo center makes photo gifts quick and easy!  You can order canvases, posters, prints, blankets, pillows, calendars and more.  Upload your favorite photos using your computer or their app.  Place your order and most can be picked up the next day! Hello last minute peeps – can I get a high five!  What grandparent wouldn’t love a calendar filled with their favorite faces, or a canvas of last Christmas to hang in their house.  I’m planning some photo gifts this year, and I’m definitely guilty of waiting until the last minute.

Take advantage of their massive battery center and buy one pack of each, so that you aren’t scrambling on Christmas morning to find batteries for those brand new toys that need them, but don’t come with them. Nobody wants to deal with those tears of frustration, and those are just the parents!
