As you finish your last minute Thanksgiving shopping at your local Sam’s Club, it’s also a great time to get a jump on your holiday shopping thanks to pre-Black Friday sale pricing on deals throughout the store and online until this Wednesday, November 25. We stopped in our local Sam’s Club over the weekend to pick up a few things for our Thanksgiving feast and found an incredible selection of gifts for gadget lovers, teens, Star Wars fans, Lego aficionados, and thoughtful gifts for holiday hostesses and teachers. Here’s a peek at what I found that can be found at your local Sam’s Club or through SamsClub.com.
From smart home products from Nest, premium audio by Bose, and a wide variety of cases to fit Apple and Android phones, you can also find deals on a wireless mouse from Logitech in patterns to match personalities and a Charge Tower 6 port USB desktop charger that will help keep all devices charged for under $10 each. If you’ve been getting a fitness tracker, the Garmin vivofit 2 is highly recommended and is a steal at $59.98 especially since it retails for $100 at other stores.
Boxes of Duplos are perfect for young builders while older kids will love sets like LEGO Friends, Disney, Creator, and Ninjago sets priced at $24.97. There was also an impressive selection of LEGO related books that serve as a great way to motivate kids to read about something they love.
Star Wars Fans
With The Force Awakens coming to theaters very soon, there are plenty of gifts for Star Wars fans young and old. Our local Sam’s Club had all 6 Star Wars movies as limited edition individuals ($16.99 each) or as part of a box set of 3 in Blu Ray and DVD for $42.99. Standing Storm Trooper and Darth Vadar figurines that talked could be a gift for the young at heart who might also appreciate the ceramic Star Wars Cookie Jars that came in Storm Trooper, Darth Vadar, or Boba Fett. Young fans who love Nerf could wage their own war against the Dark Side while pretending to be Chewbacca thanks to a mask and a Nerf crossbow similar in style to the one our furry friend uses.
There are no shortage of gifts at Sam’s Club for teens including laptops, cameras, a movie trio of the first three Hunger Games movies (DVD + digital for $18.98, Blu Ray + digital for $22.98), Xbox One consoles and huge selection of games, and wireless speakers designed to fill a room with sound. Gifts for this age group are available at all price points which helps you find great gifts that help you maintain your cool factor without breaking the bank.
Teachers and Hostesses
A little thoughtfulness goes a long way at the holidays and Sam’s Club makes it easy to say thanks to those who deserve it most. Fresh cut flowers are always available at Sam’s Club but during the holidays, it’s easy to find lovely gifts to delight your child’s teachers and say thank you to your holiday hostesses. I love the set of 5 ceramic travel mugs that come filled with a packet of hot cocoa and marshmallows for under $20, the festive boxes that hold holiday cookies, and the giant gift baskets filled with treats that can be enjoyed during a holiday open house or throughout the holidays.
