It's hard to believe that Christmas will be here in less than a month, making it important that we start getting together our Christmas list and checking it twice! As a fan of almost anything and everything tech, one of the places I always look for the best Christmas gifts is Best Buy! Even in the age where we can find just about anything on the internet, Best Buy still has one of the largest selections of tech items, ranging from computers to wearable tech perfect for just about anyone. This year, I have been especially struggling to find gifts for my husband – the guy who sometimes seems to have everything!

For decades, Best Buy has been the well known authority and destination for all tech and appliances. Part of what makes them the perfect choice for buying any sort of tech is their highly trained blue shirt staff and the Geek Squad. At any time, you can walk into the store and expect these wonderful men and ladies to help you with just about any purchase, especially during the holidays. From my own experience, I have found them to be passionate, highly trained, quite knowledgeable, and most importantly, impartial in their opinion when it comes to recommending products. As well, I understand the Geek Squad is amazing at helping deal with any technical issues, so that Best Buy can provide the support you need for not only purchasing the perfect computer, but confidence that they can fix any issue if you have troubles with a desktop computer or laptop purchased at Best Buy.

One of the other reasons I love shopping at Best buy during the holiday season is their awesome selection of products that can be found on and any of their 1,400 physical locations.  I love checking out the physical store since it is a candy store for tech, allowing you to touch and test out the products you think will be the perfect gifts for family. As well, you can find more than 100 products that are exclusively sold only at best Buy, allowing you to give a unique holiday gift that is perfect for just about anyone!


Don't forget too that you can purchase more than just electronics at Best Buy. We personally bought our washer and dryer from them since with their low price guarantee, they were cheaper than anywhere else in our area! So, what stuff can you find at Best Buy? Well, the perfect gifts for everyone!

  • Phones (they have an awesome selection of phones, carriers, plans, & accessories)
  • Tablets (latest models that are available able to be tested in store)
  • Desktop Computers
  • Laptops
  • Computer Accessories
  • Computer Hardware
  • Home Theater (TVs, speakers, audio systems)
  • Video Game Consoles & Games (including the new PS4 & Xbox One)
  • Appliances
  • Music & Movies
  • Digital Imaging Technology
  • Mobile Tech (Logitech Headphones & speakers, Bluetooth portable speakers & accessories)
  • Wearable Technology (Misfit Shine, Fitbit, Jawbone Up, & more)
  • Gifts for Kids (new Digital Barbie Makeover Kit, Fisher Price Little People Apptivity Barnyard)

    Don't get me wrong… If there is an electronic on your giftlist, Best Buy is a great place to go, but I don' t think you should buy electronics for everyone on your list. I think we are becoming way to dependant upon technology. Many people don't know how to talk to people face to face, and many of the younger generations don't have the manners and respect that were taught before this age of technology.

    Best Buy sure isn't what it used to be, but one thing that it's always been good at: reinventing itself to try and stay on top of the game.  I admire that about them!

    I love Best buy, for rarely have I had a bad experience with customer service (only once, but we could have done more research to avoid the problem we had), and also their variety of products. We almost always find what we are shopping for there.
