NIVEA – The Gift Of Pampering @NIVEAUSA #NIVEAMoments #cbias #spon



Don’t you just love the holidays? I know that I do! It’s such a great time of year to shop. One of the things that I love shopping for most is items to put together for gift baskets. Recently I went to Sam’s Club to gather all of the things necessary to make a nice NIVEA pampering gift basket. I have a special friend that will be receiving this basket and I hope that she loves it as much as I did putting it together.

NIVEA Pampering Gift Basket

I got a really sweet deal on the NIVEA lotion at Sam’s Club. I got 2 of the large lotions along with the bonus purse size lotion for only $8.98. I really appreciated how cheap the lotion was at Sam’s Club. I also love purchasing in bulk. It makes it easier to keep plenty of what I like on hand, without the constant fear of running out and it makes it easier for gift giving, as well. Gift baskets are nowhere near as expensive to put together as many people think they are. I also picked up the Belgian Truffles at Sam’s Club for less than $10. That price was for 3 packs. So, I had 2 giant packs of NIVEA and 3 packs of truffles. Mmmm…that sounds like a pack of truffles might not be leaving my house. ;)

I just love giving gift baskets this time of year. They are so personal and can be catered to suit anyone’s tastes and preferences. My friend who will be receiving this has very dry skin in the winter, as do I, so I know where she is coming from. And I have just the cure for her dry skin!

I went ahead and made a second gift basket because I realized after my purchase that I had enough supplies to make more than one! Now, I just need to decide who to give it to this holiday season.

  1. I love Sam’s Club & NIVEA! My mother has been using it for years and is always giving me a few bottles throughout the year. I love to use it especially on my elbows where my skin gets the driest. Thank you for my basket! lol

  2. My family has a huge problem with dry skin and would great benefit from this basket. Maybe I’ll give it to my husband;) THanks

    Ok, so I checked out your picture of the gift basket you made, and I have to make a comment even though I’ve already commented today on something else.. I love Nivea products, but I’ll tell you what I absolutely love more than those are those truffles!! I don’t know if you’ve tried them or not, but those are AMAZING!! Do you remember a long time ago they had those candies called IceCubes? Those taste exactly like them and the past few years I’ve made it a point to hit Sam’s club one day to pick up a supply of those when they come out around the holidays.. I let my membership expire this year, so I’m going to live without them :( (not that I really need them anyways… I should actually be going on a diet…) Anyways, I had to stop by and let you know that you will make someones holiday with that basket :) They will LOVE the products AND the chocolates!!! For sure!!

    • I am not sure that I have heard of IceCubes… I will have to look for those! Thanks for the suggestion. :)


  4. I would love to treat myself to something like this! Love Nivea products!

  5. I love the Nivea body washes but I haven’t tried the lotions yet- your gift basket looks great!

    I’d love a comment or share back on my FB status…

  6. I love the great deals at Sam’s Club! We signed up for a membership a few months ago and then moved where we aren’t close to one and I miss it. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I would love to try the Nivea products. Whoever gets the basket is going to love it.

    I love this goodie pack! Everything you need to pamper yourself ;)!

  9. I love Nivea products! I have very fussy skin, and this is one of very few big brands that my skin tolerates. I’d love Sam’s Club too, if we had one nearby… what a lovely gift pack :)

  16. I am the same way when I shop at Sam’s Club! I love all the value and bonus packages! I’m not surprised to hear you had enough to create two lovely baskets! Thanks so much for sharing your experience :)

  17. I love Nivea products.

  18. You’re Sam’s Club had a different product than mine! I love getting lotions and soaps for Christmas. Especially living in this dry, cold area!

    • I think the product in your post is the same one they had at the other Sam’s Club in Winston-Salem. There are two there. :)

  26. What a really fantastic gift idea, I love it! I know who would appreciate that 2nd gift basket.. this girl ;) Lol! Thanks for the great gifting idea!
