Finding gifts for others is undeniably difficult, especially since some people are hard to impress or shop for. Sometimes I'm inspired & have the perfect idea of what to get someone, but other times I'm completely at a loss. Will they like it? Will they say they like it but they really hate it? Will they use it? Will they re-gift it?


I had the opportunity to partner with DICK'S Sporting Goods to grab a couple gifts for friends & family. Upon walking in the store, I was impressed with its sheer size & range of products. It's kind of like having the entire mall in one enormous store! I used to go to DICK'S with my family during my sister's soccer & softball days, but it's not just for athletes.


DICK'S Sporting Goods has a huge variety of products. Seriously huge. The place is massive. From Apple Watches to sports bras to personalized golf balls to Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, there's genuinely something for everyone. I bought a gift for me, my boyfriend, & my sister.


I got myself a cute Under Armour Women's Power In Pink Mid Sports Bra, a Hurley Women's Dri-FIT Tank Dress for my sister, & an adidas Men's techfit Fitted T-Shirt for Fred. Not to mention, I pretty much wanted everything from the Calia line by Carrie Underwood. Whether you want a fruit infuser water bottle or some new sunglasses, there's plenty of options to choose from.


You can even do a bit of charitable good during your shopping spree. By the year 2020, 27% of U.S. public high schools won't have any sports programs. Through their #SportsMatter initiative, DICK'S is doing their part to stop this trend by raising $25 million to support youth athletics in underfunded communities.


In addition to getting all your holiday gifts, you can help save youth sports by purchasing Sports Matter green shoe laces! $2 of every purchase of the green laces goes to underfunded sports programs. Might as well shop with a cause!
