DICK's Sporting Goods & Finding the #GiftThatMatters

DICK's Sporting Goods & Finding the #GiftThatMatters

My family shops at DICK's Sporting Goods all the time, with my brother and youngest sister who play highschool baseball and softball respectively. The rest of family also dabbles in sports ranging from: running, tennis, golfing, tee ball, basketball, biking, etc... So yeah, you could say we are kinda into sports. So to say the least, I am excited to be working on this campaign with DICK's Sporting Goods for the holidays. Whats more, I can't wait to share about the DICK's Sporting Goods Foundation Sports Matter initiative that helps support youth sport teams that are in need of funds to keep their programs running. 

If you have never been to one of their stores, let me give you an idea of what you could find as gifts for all the sports & outdoor lovers in your life at DICK's Sporting Goods.

  • Tennis Shoes from the top brands [NIKE, Brooks, Adidas, etc...]
  • Workout Gear [Lucy, Adidas, Reebok, NIKE, CALIA by Carrie Underwood, etc...]
  • Baseball & Softball Gear
  • Everything you could need for Camping & Hiking
  • Basketball Gear
  • Golfing Gear
  • Tennis Gear

If you are still unsure on what to get for everyone, let me recommend items that they will use all the time [or loose easily] a.k.a golf balls, batting gloves, tees, etc... or even gift cards if you know that are wanting new shoes, workout pants, or even a baseball bat. Also, DICK's Sporting Goods is offering free shipping on all orders for Christmas, or if you would prefer to shop online but pick up your order in-store they have that option too. 

After pouring over several different departments, I decided to spend my lovely gift card from DICK's Sporting Goods on some new workout pants and top from CALIA by Carrie Underwood. Why? Well my dear reader, I've been doing blogilates for a year now, and I'm slowly working on loosing some weight that I've been gaining non-stop since starting to work at Starbucks so I've started using the treadmill to help with that [as well as cutting back on my sugar intake from Starbucks]. Also, I've never splurged on nice workout gear and I have loved Carrie Underwood's line since it first launched, plus her stuff is stylish and soft [important in my book]. 

My Mom & sisters all love the CALIA by Carrie Underwood line, so if you have some girlfriends, sisters, or perhaps your mom would love some cute workout gear definitely give this line a look.
