If you’ve been around for a while now, I’m sure you can guess that sometimes this time of year can get a bit expensive for our family. With three teens and a lot of boys, tech and gaming items top most of our kids’ Christmas lists. Thankfully we have a great Best Buy store here in town that helps cross each item off of our list, and since Best Buy offers expert service and unbeatable prices it helps make the process a little less painful.
The Xbox One was at the top of both my 5 year old and my 20 year old’s list, for good reason.
Why? Well the Xbox One is the place for games. It was built by gamers, for gamers. The Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new lever with some of the best exclusive titles (Halo, Sunset Overdrive), some of the biggest blockbusters (Assassin’s Creed and Call of Duty), the hottest sports franchises (Madden 15, FIFA 15, NBA 2K15) and top family titles (Fantasia: Music Evolved, Just Dance 15, Skylanders).
But the Xbox One isn’t only built for games. It connects consumers unlike any other device. It enable access to the latest TV shows and movies through your favorite apps.
With Xbox One all of your media is at your fingertips when you want it. It’s the perfect family entertainment system.
I’ve talked about my love for JBL products in this space a few times, and they are still topping the Christmas lists for my family. You can find a range of products at Best Buy to suit that special someones needs, but these three items are my personal favorites.
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.
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.
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.
My husband travels a lot for work, and it’s often in different places. I’d love to gift him a TomTom Go 50 to help him make his way in new areas. The TomTom Go 50 comes with the following features:
- Lifetime TomTom Traffic: Drive with TomTom Traffic for the lifetime of your device
- Lifetime Maps (US, Canada, Mexico): Always drive with the latest map
- 3D Maps. See buildings and landmarks in stunning 3D
- 5″ touchscreen with advanced lane guidance
Thankfully we’re pretty much done with our Christmas shopping, and there just might be some of these items under our tree! If you have a last minute gift to pick, then check out Best Buy for these items and others that are great for #HintingSeason!
