Do you have someone who’s really hard to buy for at the holidays?  I have a couple of those people to be honest.  One of them happens to be my 10 year old son.  He’s at an odd age where he doesn’t really want toys anymore and he’s just now starting to get into electronics.  We have a gaming system already, but it’s old and I have been giving serious thought into getting him the Xbox One this year for Christmas.  He could also use a new pair of headphones, so I definitely have to get over to Best Buy to finish up my shopping for him.  When it comes to great gift ideas, Best Buy is the place to shop! They have everything I’m looking for all in one place.  You know, things such as the Xbox One, JBL speakers and headphones, Garmin and TomTom!

Check out some of the things I’m thinking about getting when I go to Best Buy this weekend:

Xbox One:

Xbox One was built by gamers, for gamers. With the best exclusive titles (Halo, Sunset Overdrive), 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) Xbox One takes gaming to a whole new level.

In addition to being a great gaming console, Xbox one connects consumers unlike any other device.  Xbox One enables 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.

Gifts from JBL:

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.


Garmin and TomTom:

Feauting bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, traffic and weather updates.  Lane assist, Lifetime traffic and map updates.   Voice Recognition Technology.

  1. It has been ages since I’ve played a video games since it seems like I’m always busy, but I wouldn’t mind having that XBox One! I’m mostly into survival horror, so I wonder if they have enough games like that for it yet. 🙂


  2. These are great picks. My nephew is around this age – and we were clueless about what he might like! It’s so true, they’re in that in-between stage at this age!

  3. Totally a fan of Best Buy and couldn’t agree with you more 😉

  4. I’d love to get the X-Box One. As of late I’ve really wanted to get into gaming, no idea why but it’d be something to do in the evenings when my son has gone to bed 🙂

  5. I have been debating wether to replace my hubby’s old 360 with a new XboxOne. I know I will have to eventually, but I’m wondering if it’s really worth it yet?

  6. I’ve been done with my Christmas shopping for almost two weeks now and it feels great! Best Buy was definitely a stop for a new camera though!

  7. I love the big 5″ screen on the Tom Tom. I would love a new GPS for the car! We have a Best Buy a couple towns over. I’ll have to check it out in-store.

  8. Best Buy has such a great selection! My husband’s favorite store!

  9. I’ve been loping for a speaker for a while now and JBL Flip 2 seems perfect! Lightweight and portable. It’s definitely on my Christmas list this year <3

  10. my family loves best buy. Great gift ideas.

  11. All those things sound wonderful! My kids do not have a big game set. Only a DS right now. Someday… I do like Best Buy!

  12. Well my curiosity has been piqued about the JBL speakers. I initially thought the grown kids might like those for Christmas, but you know… I might like those for me! 🙂

  13. My parents have a Tom Tom. We like to shop at Best Buy too. Thanks for sharing these great gift ideas!

  14. I recently got the JBL Charge 2 speaker and LOVE it. My boys would be over the moon with an XBOX One, but I don’t see it happening this year.

  15. I am seriously thinking about that Garmin for my father-in-law. I think he would love it.

  16. My Hubs is in need of a new Garmin or Tom Tom. We have like 3 of them and he says he wants a new one. What’s up with that anyway?

  17. Love it when we can just go to one shop to fulfil all our shopping needs!

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  18. I’m interested in checking out JBL myself. I think that this is a great alternative to the overpriced name brand. I think it’s probably just as good–probably better.

  19. I love my Tom Tom. It is my best friend, especially when I am driving in my own neighborhood!

  20. These JBL speakers are on my daughter’s Christmas list this year. Best Buy is always one of my holiday gift-buying destinations.

  27. I recently got a new ipod so I would love to have those speakers. I would love to give my husband the new TomTom because ours is ancient and he needs it because he is always getting lost!

  28. We so-oo need a new GPS. Ours is 7 years old and the maps have never been updated. Thanks for the recommendations.

  29. I got my #1 gift a little early – a MacBook Pro from Best Buy. I wouldn’t mind having a couple games for our Wii U, though!

  30. I’m not sure what I would get from Best Buy. They always have a lot of useful stuff.

  31. So many great ideas! We have an X-Box but I’m thinking of giving ours to my niece and nephew so they can enjoy it.

  32. If my nephew scored an Xbox One for Christmas, he’d probably have a stroke! He’s been drooling over it for months.

  33. I’ve already snagged a JBL bluetooth speaker for my husband. He’s been hinting pretty hard ever since he saw it.

  34. We need a second GPS and I definitely have to get a pair of ear buds for my husband. He is CONSTANTLY losing his!
