Great Holiday Gift Ideas from Best Buy

Family Gifts

Xbox One

The number one item on my gift list is the Xbox One. If there was ever an item that makes my heart go pitter patter it is Xbox. As a gamer, this is the way to my heart. Our house currently consists of two Xbox 360’s but an Xbox One underneath our Christmas tree would involve screams and tears of joy, let alone the shouts from the boys.

Xbox One is for gamers and takes gaming to a whole new level. Ever since we attended the Xbox One Tour this has been on our list of items to save for our family. From familiar games we’ve played for awhile to sports and family games, the Xbox One has it all. Some of the games you can play on Xbox One, some exclusively only on this gaming console.

Xbox One

  • Halo
  • Sunset Overdrive
  • Assassin’s Creed
  • Call of Duty
  • Madden 15
  • FIFA 15

Of course Xbox One is more than just gaming since your favorite apps allows access to the latest TV shows and more. When shopping for Xbox One be sure to grab an Xbox Live membership to take full advantage of all the awesomeness.


Red is color of December and JBL goes perfectly underneath your Christmas tree showcasing how beautiful tech and awesome colors can still be combined into one product.


Bluetooth enabled speakers are nothing new but the JBL Charge 2 has Bluetooth Social Mode which allows up to three different users to play their own playlists on one single speaker at a time. This makes it easier to share the deep bass among family or friends. The massive 6000mAh battery allows for up to 12 hours of playback before it needs to be recharged.

If the JBL Charge 2 is a little too big for your taste, then the JBL Flip 2 might be the next best thing. This speaker has a built-in bass port and a state-of the art microphone system to pick up calls on the speaker. The SoundClear echo and noise cancellation combined with the remote makes this a portable sound system. Utilize the remote to change your music tracks, adjust the volume, and even take phone calls.

With a sweat proof design, JBL Reflect Earbud headphones provides an individual listening experience with ergonomic eartips for comfort during exercise. The rechargeable battery lasts five hours and has a reach of about 40 feet.
