It’s time to buy cool gifts for Christmas. In my house that translates to “It’s time to buy the cool tech gifts.”
I like to go to a store look around, and buy them in person. I like to hold them in my hand and actually see how electronics work before I shell out all sorts of cash on that sort of thing. Which is exactly what I did at Best Buy!
I needed to buy a camera for a special man on my list, so I started by going checking out the Best Buy website to see what’s trending. Best Buy always has the best tech gifts, but did they have what I was looking for? Dude, YES. There was an entire camera section.
And I found the gift I was looking for! This deep plum automatic big-bodied Nikon camera was exactly what I wanted. BUT– you can’t pick out cameras online. You just can’t. I mean, sure you can LOOK at the pictures professional photographers have taken with the cameras, but I needed to see how this camera would work for regular people.
So, I headed to my local Best Buy and I went straight to the camera section.
Perfect. It was time to find the camera I found online. I was looking for the Nikon L820 camera. I kind of had my heart set on it, so I would have been totally heartbroken if they hadn’t had one for me to play with.
They had it!!! There it was in stock, and all plugged in for me to hold in my hands! I played with the camera a little bit, and I LOVE that I was able to actually take pictures of things in the store!
I played with this camera until a salesperson came over to help me. She went through several other cameras with me, and eventually I ended up picking the one I came in to get. It’s fantastic, it takes great pictures, and I am so glad I can be totally comfortable with this cool gift I got! It’s perfect!
I had some other things on his gift guide, too: He wants games and accessories for his Xbox One, so I went to check and see what they had in store over there.
And of course Best Buy had everything I could ever imagine! Accessories, controllers, cords, every game they make! YES! I was able to get all my holiday shopping done for him right there. I checked out the smart phones, tablets, small appliances, and I was in and out in under an hour! That’s my kind of shopping!
I also picked up a gift card for my little brother while I was there. (I never know what to get him!) Turns out Best Buy currently has a campaign going called Give it To Win it. They’re giving away a bunch of daily prizes to anyone who buys a gift card over $25 and either scans it in store, or if you forget (like I did) you can just use your Best Buy app on your phone. DUDE. It’s like I got to shop for me, too! What can you win?
- (1) Grand Prize: $10,000 Best Buy gift card, (5) First Prizes: $500 Best Buy gift card, (10) Second Prizes: $100 Best Buy gift card, (40) Third Prizes: $50 Best Buy gift card
Best Buy is also partnering with Google on 12/17 for a Google+ shoppable hangout to help people shop for last minute gifts! What a cool idea!
