I’m not the only one who hasn’t bought most of my Christmas gifts, right? RIGHT??? This year it wasn’t even procrastination, but a sort of perfect storm of life events that hurtled me toward Christmas like a shark caught up in a freak LA tornado. (Because that happens.) Despite not having my shopping done, I thought I’d create for you a gift list with the best tech gifts and other unique and cool gifts—ALL available at your local Best Buy store.
Because Best Buy can be overwhelming with all of its gadgets and gizmos, you can check what’s trending online at Best Buy before you hit the store. Or just use my very specific gift guide, organized by type of person you might be buying for.
This gift screams—nay, ROARS—for that teeny bopper who owns every Katy Perry CD (or the adult who might have seen the documentary three times). Clearly, this person doesn’t need any more music. What they might love? Their own cotton candy machine. Yes, you can buy a cotton candy machine at Best Buy. This sugary overkill of a gift seems like the perfect thing for the person who can’t remember last Friday night and/or has a teenage dream of fluffy pink clouds in the comfort of home. YUM.
We all know one. Heck, maybe you’re married to one. It creeps out of the ears, the nose…kind of like one of those poltergeists that just won’t go away. At least not without an exorcism of sorts. Consider this the exorcism for facial hair.
Boxes filled with receipts. File folders with mail, bills, reports, and even kids’ artwork. This pack rat keeps every little thing, but oh no! Now she wants to go green, streamline her stuff, and recycle ten tons of paper products. You’ve probably seen the infomercials, but this Neat Desk is a thing to behold. What I wouldn’t give to play with this baby! We have way too many things I can’t seem to get rid of, and the moment I throw away a receipt, I NEED IT. There is some kind of law about this, I think. This is the perfect gift to declutter even the most pack-ratty house.
I can’t help it. Though I’ve been coaching and not skating for over a season now, I still have derby on the brain. This gift? Literally gives you derby on the brain, by way of a helmet mount for a video camera. This would also allow you to live vicariously: see right through her eyes what it’s like to go all-out on the derby track. Who knows? You might get hooked yourself.
The Fit Bit is a trending item that would be perfect for the person who never stops counting OR running. Fit Bit tracks weight, activity, and EVEN SLEEP. I would honestly love to get a pair of these for me and Rob, because the discrepancy between our sleep numbers alone would be hysterical. (He craves it; I avoid it.) This might convict me that I need a bit more zzzz’s and a bit less to eat. So don’t get this for me this Christmas. I have chocolate to eat and sleep to avoid to get all those presents wrapped.
I love online shopping, but there is something about wandering through a real store where you can touch, smell, hear, and (maybe?) taste everything. I had no idea what to get Rob this year, but after wandering through the store, I found the PERFECT gift in the new small kitchen appliance section of Best Buy. (Which I got info about earlier this year at a Best Buy event!) My hubby has been wanting a juicer forever. And I don’t want to juice. I won’t juice. Don’t even get near me with your juice, juicers! This compact juicer is the best thing ever for Rob. A nice price and great size that makes one 16-ounce serving at a time. Did I mention it’s small? Apparently, so am I.It’s not too late to shop, and not too late to enter the Give It to Win It Sweepstakes. Every time you buy a $25 or more Best Buy gift card, you can scan it for a chance to win daily (DAILY) prizes, the top one being a $10,000 Best Buy gift card. Score!
What are your favorite cool gifts? Did you find the best tech gifts in a store or online? Please someone tell me I’m not the only one with a giant list of people who still need gifts?
