Yes, I know it’s October. Yes, I know that there are a few major “holidays” between now and Christmas but I am here to tell you NONE OF THAT MATTERS! Christmas is coming and I am here to make sure that you are prepared with Sam’s Club!
A few weeks ago I attended a Christmas Wonderland set up by Sam’s Club in a beautiful loft in NYC. From the moment I walked in and was greeted with life size Nutcracker soldiers, I knew that I was in the right place. The loft was absolutely stunning. There were floor to ceiling Christmas trees, beautifully decorated tables and fireplaces, gifts, wrapping paper, cookies, treats — you name it.
Since the holiday season is right around the corner it’s never too soon to start thinking about what gifts you’re going to give, how you’re going to decorate your home, or what food you’re going to serve your family and friends. This year, you can make your holiday better and brighter with Sam’s Club!
Christmas Cheer Home Decor
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is decorate my home. At this event, I got some fabulous ideas for this upcoming holiday season! One of my favorite ways to add some fun holiday sparkle is with pillows!
The Nutcracker Soldiers were also awesome. I loved them behind the couch but I think they would do well on my windowsill too! These retail for $39.99 and you can get them here.
Need a new tree? Consider this beautiful Member’s Mark 9′ Grand Spruce Christmas Tree, it completely took my break away when I saw it. It comes with 800 warm lights attached and wire memory that makes putting it together a breeze.
Check out some of the 2018 Christmas Home Decor trends for you to consider when decorating your abode this year:
- Elegant casual is the new trend. Looks are elevated yet simple and clean.
- Greenery is important in all trends
- Texture and finish (mixed and layered) is used to create dimension and interest.
- Application of color through various shades and levels create depth.
- Blue, green, copper and taupe are key colors woven throughout most themes.
- Metallics remain important as the new neutral.
- Lighting: LED, micro, cluster string lights and Edison bulbs add the perfect ambience to any décor.
Easy Holiday Gift Ideas
Teacher gifts have always been a stress spot for me — I always want to get the perfect gift to show my (our) appreciation for their hard work. I am happy to say that I am covered this year! I usually give a gift card, but I love to give something fun, useful and personal too!
Sam’s Club provided a ton of ideas including mug sets, yummy Harry & David peppermint bark, delicious popcorn from the Popcorn factory and so much more! It will be super easy to grab some of these items (early!) and have them wrapped and ready to go once gifting time comes!
Holiday Toys at Sam’s Club
Did you know that Sam’s Club has a ton of toys for the kids? Lots of amazing stocking stuffers, big item toys like the Nintendo Switch, Apple Air Pods, and unique items like this Hangout POD, Kids’ Hanging Tent that retails for under $200 and holds more than 300lbs! My house is still a house full of toys because we don’t allow a ton of screen time around here so the diversity of toy options are super appreciated.I know it's October BUT omg you guys it's never too early to get ready for #Christmas with @SamsClub!
