Next week is Christmas! That means the final countdown is on and I’ve noticed that a lot of people are scrambling for those last minute gifts. You may be one of them. To be honest, I am. There are still some people on my list that I need to get gifts for. And as a new mom, I have a whole new outlook on shopping in store and shopping for those who are on my Christmas list. I personally went on a huge shopping spree to shop for my little nugget and the realized that I needed to pause and shop for everyone else. That’s why I was glad that DICK’S Sporting Goods (DSG) invited me to the store with some other moms to find what are the best gift options for everyone on your list.

HOLIDAY GIFT PICKS
I want to first start off by saying that if you’re shopping last minute and you’re worried whether you’ll be able to get the gifts in time, DICK’S Sporting Goods offers ‘Buy Online Pick Up In Store’. That means that while you’re sitting here on your computer or phone reading this and you’re thinking about all the gifts you can pick out, you can add them to your cart, check out, and pick everything up at your local store within a couple of hours.
This is a great perk for many, but especially those with kids, because you may not want to spoil the Santa magic and/or you just don’t have the time or energy to peruse through the store with your children. Even as a mom of an infant, it’s hard to shop in store. Even with my travel system, it is not guaranteed that my little babe will take a nap and that could mean some loud screams if he wants to get out or he’s hungry.
As you start your search, my suggestion is to start with the DSG Holiday Gift Guide. They have rounded up some amazing items that are perfect gifts for everyone. From stocking stuffers to that new bike your nephew has been asking for, they have everything.
The one big section that I shopped was the men’s gift guide. I have the hardest time shopping for my husband, dad, and brother. Every time that I ask them what they want for Christmas, I get a shrug or a non-answer. Often times, I just shrug myself and think: “I guess they’re getting nothing”. But my big heart just can’t do that. So, while in store, I was so happy to see the curated section of men’s picks (right below).
Other than shopping for the men and kids, there are also great women’s items that are great gifts. My mom attended the shopping experience with me and actually picked out her own Christmas gifts. Between finding boots to get more ready for the season to comfortable winter wear from some of the big sports brands and DSG’s own brand, there were tons of options. I got so carried away that I picked out so many pieces for myself that I forgot about those who I was shopping for.
While shopping, you can also find some amazing DSG perks and services. Other than the in-store pick up, there is also best price guarantee, GOLD Scorecard, last minute holiday deals, and Sports Matters.
Let’s start from the top. If you find an item at another store that you are planning to purchase at DSG and it’s a lesser price, DICK’S Sporting Goods will match it for you. I always like this because it means that instead of my shopping at various stores to get the lowest price, I can still shop at one and just have everything price matched.
There is also the GOLD Scorecard which is a new tier of the loyalty rewards program. My husband has been a rewards member for years, so he was happy to hear this and happy that I was able to put him into the new tier. If you spend over $500 or more in one calendar year, you’ll be added to this tier which means additional perks and rewards that weren’t available before.
Sports Matter is a giving back that DSG is doing. Every DSG item that is purchased, 1% is given to help support endeavors to give all kids the ability to play a sport. Most kids never really realize they like a sport because they never get the ability to try it. DSG wants to change that with this program.
And then lastly, during this final countdown of the holiday season, DICK’S Sporting Goods will be having holiday deals online and in store. While we were in the store, we were happy to see that a lot of items were on sale including some of the picks we snagged from Nike and Timberland.
