I had the pleasure of attending a holiday tour at BJ’s Wholesale Club, in which NYC bloggers had an opportunity to check out the collection of holiday essentials available this season. I was totally amazed by the versatility of their offerings. It seems that BJ’s is a huge “mall” within one big warehouse – you can find everything you need for the holidays, from home decor and gift wrap, to presents for everyone on your list… all within one gigantic, well-organized room! No more running around like a mad woman a few days before Christmas in search of last-minute items on your list. You can find it all at BJ’s!
Electronics & Entertainment
BJ’s has a wide assortment of name brand TVs, like Samsung and Vizio, as well as accessories such as wall mounts. At the event, I learned that if you’re in the market for a TV… now is the time to buy one, since television prices are at an all-time low!
Canon® EOS 60D Digital SLR - $100 Instant Rebate/Online Instant Coupon valid from 11/28/11 – 1/1/12
BJ’s also carries top of the line computers, printers, and cameras. Many of their electronics are sold in “bundles,” which essentially means you are getting way more bang for your buck! An example of this is the Fuji AX230 Digital Camera Bundle for $99.99, which includes camera with 5x wide-angle optical zoom, an attractive, sleek camera case, and 2GB SD Memory card.
Now you have the power to make the gaming enthusiast on your list very merry with an Xbox 360 Wireless Headset, the comfortable, cord-free way to hear everything in your Xbox 360® gaming environment while communicating with fellow gamers, and an Xbox 360 Controller, which lets you enjoy a 30-ft range and up to 40 hours of battery life. Skyrim, Skylanders Spyro’s Adventure, and Just Dance 3 for Wii, Xbox 360 Kinect and PlayStation are also available at BJ’s every day low price.
Shopping for that special lady (or gent) in your life? BJ’s has got that covered too! The BJ’s Jewelry Department offers unique products that range from dazzling diamonds to glimmering gold and more. The gorgeous Lauren Taylor Swarovski Crystal Encrusted Bangles that you see pictured above are sterling silver and available in five styles $89.99 and under. I think one of these bracelets would make a beautiful gift for my mom (even beyond the Christmas holiday!)
HexBug Nano Special Edition Set ($29.99) (above) is exclusive to BJ’s and includes five micro robots that act like real bugs — two nanos, two rare mutations and one glow-in-the-dark – plus it comes with 10 easy connect pieces. BJ’s also carries Lalaloopsy and Mini Lalaloopsy Gift Set ($24.99 each), exclusive to BJ’s, which includes a Mini Lalaloopsy and pet.
Another “must have” toy out this year was the Lazer Stunt Chaser Vehicle and Stunt Ramp Set $39.99. Infrared light moves vehicles super fast for super ramp stunts. The bundle, which is exclusive to Bj’s, includes 1 rechargeable vehicle, 2 stunt ramps, remote and charger. While on the tour I was also amazed that BJ’s also carries an exclusive Fisher-Price Imaginext Dinosaurs Gift Set ($59.99), which includes all three dinosaurs, a Mega T-Rex, Apatosaurus, and Raptor, as well as extra gear, accessories, and a DVD. My preschooler is going to go wild when he finds this under the tree!
Holiday Gift Wrap
I always seem to be making a mad dash to the drug store for wrapping paper, like two days before Christmas, because I run out. I was excited to learn about the Living Home Holiday Gift Wrap Ensemble ($11.99), which includes five rolls (120 Sq. Ft.) of foil and holographic wraps with coordinating bows, ribbon and die-cut tags in four different color themes. You get everything you need to wrap special gifts all in this sweet, very affordable bundle. I’m pretty sure I won’t be running out of gift wrap this year!
I love the Living Home Christmas Deluxe Gift Bags. They are so fun and whimsical, and will make wrapping easy and hassle-free. Each of these hand-embellished gift bags features printed interiors and wide gussets. You get a package of 18 assorted shapes and sizes for $14.99!
