Amazing Holiday Gift Ideas From Best Buy! @BestBuy #HintingSeason @Xbox, @TomTomUSA @Garmin #Ad



    I’ve noticed this year that it is becoming increasingly harder to buy Christmas presents for my two boys because they are now 11 and 8 and they don’t really play with toys like they used to.  Everything now is about gadgets and technology for them and they both drafted extensive Christmas lists outlining what devices they want to receive this year.

    Believe me, they know all about what new techie stuff that has come out and they have been teaching me all about these items.  The ironic thing is that they have also been giving me pointers about what presents their father might like to receive.  It seems that they have really done their homework this year.  Thankfully, Best Buy has all of the items on their lists and here are just some of their’s and Hubby’s favorite products:

What is Xbox One?


    Xbox One is a gaming console that was built by gamers, for gamers. It boasts the best exclusive titles such as Halo, Sunset Overdrive, the biggest blockbusters such as Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty, the hottest sports franchises including Madden 15, FIFA 15, NBA 2K15, and top family titles like Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 15, Skylanders.  With an entertainment lineup like that, Xbox One takes gaming to a whole other level.

    Not only is it a great gaming console,  but Xbox one also connects consumers unlike any other device.  It enables access to the latest television shows and movies through your favorite apps. With Xbox One all of your media is right at your fingertips whenever you wish.



JBL Charge 2- Between the twin passive radiators for deep bass, the massive 6000mAh battery and the hands-free conference speakerphone the key benefit is the Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to take their turns to play their own playlists on a single speaker.  I can see this being awesome in our home because we all have different tastes in music and we love using Bluetooth to play our music in the living room.


JBL Flip 2- Aside from the dual performance-tuned JBL drivers and a built-in bass port, the key benefit of the JBL Flip 2 is the SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker.  That is a level of convenience that even I can appreciate.

JBL Reflect Earbud headphones- Sweat proof ergonomic design. With a 5 hour rechargeable battery and a reach of about 40 feet, the JBL Reflect BT’s key benefit is the design of the ergonomic eartips along with the built-in magnets which keep your buds on standby without loose cables.  This is the feature that I love because I hate having to unwrap the cables that get tangled on everything.

Garmin and TomTom:
