Let’s talk about practical gift giving! Face it, ladies. I’ve always been one to appreciate practical gifts, even if they come in the form of Poise Liners. It is what it is! With that said, you’re totally going to want to read my story! Who knows, you might start a new tradition in your family.
Just about a month after my husband and I got married, my older sister and her husband were also married. Our weddings were in August and September, so our first “married” Christmas together was not too long after we were married.
That Christmas, my parents had an absolutely genius plan for our gifts. After all, up until that point, we were still consider their kids, and our Christmases had always seemed to exceed our expectations no matter how much my parents would tell us it would be small.
Christmas of 2011 was pretty much the best Christmas ever, and I’d love, love, love to have another one with an updated list for life’s changes!
So what was so great about this Christmas? First of all, we walked in the house, and there were a ton of gifts for us. We thought we’d hit the jackpot, and little did we know….. we did.
As we opened gifts, here’s what we found:
- Toilet Paper
- Paper Towels
- Laundry Detergent
- Fabric Softener
- Dishwasher Detergent
- Dish Soap
- Feminine Products
- Shaving Cream
- Dental Floss
- Hair brushes
- and just about any other practical gift item you could imagine.
It wasn’t too long after that we realized that we needed to look into getting a Sams Club Membership like my parents, because not only did we receive all of that, but it was pretty much all in bulk club sizes! Best. Gifts Ever. It wouldn’t be a bad idea for you to check out their memberships right now during the holidays to help you save a little money as well!
So this year, since we now have a family of six and the gift giving has pretty much been narrowed down to the kids form my parents, I’m asking Santa to deliver PRACTICAL gifts to the house!
I honestly wouldn’t mind a few additional things for that list as well! He can deliver any of these at any time!
My Practical Gift List from Sam’s Club – Poise Liners Included
Socks – We have a whole sock bin full of mismatches. Seriously, now, where do they go? It makes no sense.
Poise Liners – This one is a given. After all, I’ve had four kids, and light bladder leakage (LBL) happens. It happens, y’all. There’s really no way around it. Go ahead and grab yourself some while you’re thinking about it. Quit using the menstrual pads. That’s not what they’re for! No shame at all. (You can save $4 at Sams Club! That can go toward a pack of socks!)
Underwear – Yeah, you know how busy moms can get! Some of us haven’t purchased new underwear in
a year months!
Sam’s Club Membership – Hey, a girl can wish for her membership to be paid, right? (I’m not opposed to accepting the Sam’s Plus Membership! Thanks!)
Light Bulbs – If I had a dollar for every bulb that is out in my house right now, I might be able to buy replacements!
Pillows – Every year we say we’re going to buy the family new pillows, and every year we forget!
In all seriousness, though, Poise Liners with Absorb-Loc are an excellent way to protect against wetness and unwanted odors form light bladder leakage. There really is a difference between LBL liners and menstrual liners. Poise Liners are 3 times drier than regular menstrual liners, because they have been designed specifically for light bladder leakage. Plus, they’re making them thinner, but they still have the same amount of protection.
After you’ve seen my photo all over the internet all excited about my practical stocking gift, are you still embarrassed about LBL? That’s ok! Sam’s Club gets it. That’s why they offer discreet shipping and discreet Club Pick Up for your convenience. No one ever has to know what you’re buying! Now, that’s customer service!
