Finding a Gift That Matters + Giveaway

This post is sponsored by DICK’S Sporting Goods, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

The holiday is upon us. And it is time to find gifts for all of our loved ones. In my case, I’m all about finding the perfect gift for myself. I teamed up with Dick’s Sporting Goods to get out and find the perfect gift. The first thing I noticed about Dick’s Sporting Goods is that it doesn’t matter who you’re buying a gift for. There is something for everyone. That is why I am so excited to share this with you all.


I visited the Dick’s Sporting Goods in Glendale which is a part of the Glendale galleria. Honestly, I have never been to Dick’s before so I was very excited to see what it was all about. The store itself is huge even if it is a part of a galleria. There are several different sections in the store divided by category and then brand. There is a Junior section, a women’s section, a mens section as well as an outdoor and a tech gadget section. I loved how there were a lot of mannequins and displays everywhere. It really got me inspired to what I might want and also it made me want to workout more soI could wear these cool pieces.

Something that toilet surprised me was a section where a ton of UCLA merchandise were available.I think that its great that you can buy and support your school, not only by buying the merchandise on or close to campus. But also in your local stores! Something fun that I also found scattered around the store, divided by different sports were small items. Like water bottles, mugs, cups, balls and more fun things. So, even if someone you know doesn’t do sport themselves. You could always buy them some collectible from their favorite sports team.

Moving on to me. I was here to buy myself a fe pair of shoes. Mostly because I need a new pair of gym shoes. I haven’t bought new ones in about a year and it is definitely time to replace my old pair. And also because it has been a while since I bought myself a nice pair of shoes. So I  also wanted to buy a new pair of sneakers. Unfortunately, with the small feet that I have and my extreme pickiness with colors they had neither my size nor the coors that I really wanted. But, Dick’s Sporting Goods also have an online website in which they offer FREE shipping and returns for all footwear! How great is that? So once I got home I went ahead and ordered the shoes that  I wanted, in my sizes.
