Best Buy is one of my family’s favorite places to shop. Naturally, this means it is our favorite place to buy our holiday gifts too. There, I get to play, try, and see first-hand what my gift will do before I purchase it. Their “out of the box” experiences give me the assurance I need before selecting gifts for my loved ones. You just can’t go wrong with their expert service and unbeatable prices.

This year, I have several gifts on my list from Best Buy. Take a look at the top seven products I have my eye on:

Xbox One:

My gaming daughter is really excited about this new system. As with any upgraded XBox, the graphics are more realistic. Xbox One has cool features like Snap that allows you to multitask apps to do more with your XBox at once. This has taken that old “picture in picture” concept to a whole new level!

By snapping apps, you can multitask the activities most important to you.

When you “snap” an app, you move it to one side of your screen, where it will continue to run while you do something else on the main part of your screen. For instance, you might be playing a game, and then you snap the Netflix app so you can watch a video or snap Parties so you can talk while you play.

Upgrades were made to the Kinect and controller. On the Kinect, the microphone quality has been improved making video chatting easier (you can stop yelling at it now). But my favorite feature is the Kinect 2.0 can see in the dark using night vision! The controller has been described as “the best controller Xbox has ever made.” It certainly looks and feels easier to use. The redesigned thumbsticks feel smoother to me and make more precise movements.

XBOX e1419035046798 Fabulous Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas from Best Buy #TomTomGo

Why 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.

Stop by Best Buy to try the Xbox One for yourself!

JBL Holiday Fabulous Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas from Best Buy #TomTomGo

Wireless Home Entertainment:

Every man wants an amazing surround sound for his tv, but not every man has been able to install them on their own. With the development of affordable wireless speakers, home surround sound systems are easy to do. No crawling through the attic and drilling holes in the ceiling needed! (Thank goodness!)

  • 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:

A great reason to give a GPS this year is because they are safer to use than your phone. GPS systems are specifically designed to be used while driving. That means the developers’ intentions are to make driving while using the product as easy as possible. Personally, I hate using the GPS on my phone when I’m driving because my phone will lose my place or I won’t hear the commands when I am talking to someone at the same time. Here are three new GPS systems from Best Buy that will put a smile on the face of your loved one this Christmas:

Garmin 52LM

  • 5.0” display
  • Maps of 49 U.S. states, plus lifetime map updates1
  • Lane assist with junction view
  • Displays speed limit and accurate arrival time
  • Easily find addresses and millions of points of interest
  • Spoken turn-by-turn directions

Are you ready for a surprise? I need a new camera. It is true, I take photos on my iPad and while it does a great job, there are better options out there. Do you know someone who is like me? Do you rely on your iPhone or iPad for photos? You should consider getting something more suitable for your photography needs. Best Buy has cameras from Nikon, Sony and Samsung that all come equipped with built-in Wi-Fi so you can continue sharing amazing photos with ease.

Best Buy is the best place to upgrade your camera because they have the staff available to teach you how to use your new camera. Additional assistance is vital to taking the photos you want to take, especially during the holidays. Who has time to read a user manual or watch help videos? I know I don’t. I would much rather spend an afternoon selecting the best camera for me and asking Best Buy for their help learning how to use it. That is what works best for me, what will you do?

Traditions Matter! Hickory Farms Offers Variety of Products and Charitable Giving

Next week homes will be filled, families will gather together, and meals will be prepared. Between all of the obvious festivities will lie family traditions that make everyone happy to be there. Whether the tradition is a Grandmother and Grandson preparing the same special dessert together each Christmas Eve, everyone opening presents at midnight, or heading to midnight mass; the holidays aren’t complete without family traditions that bind us all. Traditions matter…

At Hickory Farms, traditions matter because it is who they are. For more than 60 years they have been providing holiday shoppers with options that not only present beautifully, but also taste delicious. When I think of Hickory Farms, it brings up all these questions:

  • Are you making Hickory Farms one of your traditions?
  • What are the traditions we’re leaving our children?
  • Which traditions deserve to be stuck away in the attic?
  • Into which traditions do we love to draw other people?
