Great Gift Ideas From Best Buy This Christmas

Family Gifts 5 041115 Great Gift Ideas From Best Buy This Christmas

I am not completely sure that I have processed the fact that it is already time for CHRISTMAS! Have you? I guess whether I’ve processed it or not, I have to get ready for it. And I’m ok with that, because I LOVE Christmas. The magic and joy that it brings to everybody’s heart. The cookies and milk. Cocoa by the fire. It’s all so cozy and warm and it’s hard to be down during the holidays. 

However, with all that said, it can be stressful figuring out what to get everyone. There is some good stuff out there this year. It keeps getting better and better doesn’t it? From the tablets to the coolest new toys for the kiddos, there is so much to choose from. And I am a big fan of shopping online. I like going into stores to get my hands on things and hold them. Read their box and all that fun stuff. But there is something to be said about sitting on my couch in my pj’s with a cup of coffee and having my purchase shipped to me!

If you’re still working on some ideas for gifts, I have got some awesome ideas for you! Best Buy always has the latest and greatest gift ideas and at at an affordable price.

Hang onto your seat while I stun you with a few killer gift ideas..

With Expert Service and Unbeatable Price these top gifts are on my list this Holiday and here’s why they should be on yours:

XBOX Great Gift Ideas From Best Buy This Christmas

Xbox ONE

Xbox One is the place for games.

What is 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.

Many of the bundles are $50 off right now and on sale. Perfect time to check them out! Find all the Xbox One deals here.

JBL Holiday Great Gift Ideas From Best Buy This Christmas

JBL Speakers and Headphones

JBL Charge 2 Portable Bluetooth Speaker

These are definitely on my list. 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. 

You can use these anywhere! Take them outside when you’re washing the car. Take them to the beach when you’re getting your tan on. Set it out during your Christmas party. My portable speakers are a must these days.

JBL Flip 2 Wireless Portable Stereo Speaker

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.

Such an awesome gift idea. I hope my hubby is reading this. I really want one of these! 🙂

JBL Reflect Earbud Headphones

Now THESE are cool. You can walk up to 40 FEET away from your device while wearing these. 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.

Father’s Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

Burger Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

 

I received an Omaha Steaks Exclusive Pack for The Home Depot & compensation for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

Every year about the time blooms start to form on all the trees, men everywhere begin to get excited. Excited about summer, sun, and fun? Maybe. Excited about vacations? Could be. But mostly because…it’s grilling season. Ah yes, the time when testosterone gets to run wild while the burgers, dogs, and steaks grill to perfection on a warm summer’s day.

It’s quite the thrill. I gotta admit, the take over of dinner gives me a break so I’m not complaining! Hey, I might even do the dishes. We love to grill. I’m pretty sure that just the mention of that word gets my husband so excited that he could frolic through the wildflowers. Is that true for all men? Pretty sure that’s a yes.

The picture above is the epitome of successful meal during grilling season. Aside from a big, tasty steak of course.

Omaha Steaks Package Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

 

I was so lucky to be able to try out this super yummy Omaha Steaks package. I’m telling you, this is the ultimate idea for Father’s Day seeing as it has everything a dad would want for summer grilling.

When you order the Omaha Steaks Exclusive Pack for The Home Depot, this is what’s included:

  • 2 (8 oz.) Boneless Strips
  • 2 (5 oz.) Top Sirloins
  • 8 (3 oz.) Polish Sausages
  • 8 (3 oz.) Italian Sausages
  • 4 (4 oz.) Omaha Steaks Burgers
  • 4 (3 oz.) Gourmet Jumbo Franks
  • $3.oo Coupon off Kingsford Charcoal at Home Depot
  • PLUS, one $10 Home Depot Gift Card

That is a lot of meat. Like, a lot. It’s regularly $175, but is on sale for $69.99! Savings of $105.01. Plus, they arrive in 3-5 days so even if you’re shopping for dad last minute you can still get in on this.

Father’s Day is June 15th, 2014!

Ordering was really easy. The whole process took me less than 5 minutes and my package arrived just 3 days after ordering!

The coupon for Kingsford Charcoal at Home Depot is a nice touch since many men prefer the taste of charcoal grilling. You can buy Kingsford Charcoal at participating Home Depots. You can check here for a list of participating stores.

Now better than ever, Kingsford® Charcoal features Sure Fire Grooves®. These deep, wide and long grooves mean the briquets light easier and heat faster — while burning just as long as before. As always, each briquet is made with natural ingredients and real wood, resulting in the authentic smoky flavor that Kingsford has long been known for.  Visit grilling.com for additional recipes.

The contents of the Omaha Steaks package were all packaged very well. They come in the cooler you see above wrapped with dry ice to keep them frozen for a long period of time. It’s best to freeze them pretty quickly after they arrive so try to make sure you’ll be home on the estimated delivery date.

Thawing Burgers Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

One of my favorite things about ordering from Omaha Steaks is that they vacuum seal their packages. They are SO easy to thaw. We got all ready to grill out today and realized that they were still frozen. Then I remembered how easy it was to thaw these and I was instantly relieved.

I placed the burgers (still in their vacuum-sealed packages) in cool water for about 35 minutes and we were ready to go! If you’re using charcoal then it might take that much time to prepare the grill! We did this with the humongous jumbo franks we got too and it worked for them as well.

Burgers On The Grill Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

After thawing them out, they grilled up beautifully.

Grilled Dinner1 Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

We had some leftover macaroni and cheese that combined with the burgers, made for such a tasty lunch! There’s nothing like a good grill out!

Dad Bite Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

The quality of the meat Omaha Steaks offers is really good in my opinion. We’ve always liked their burgers and steaks. Mom tested and dad approved!

If you’d like to grab one of these Omaha Steaks packages for dad this Father’s Day, head over to OmahaSteaks.com/HomeDepot and grab not only some fabulous meat, but also a Home Depot gift card and discount on Kingsford charcoal!

DIY Personalized Gift Mugs

DIY Gift Mugs DIY Personalized Gift Mugs

Have you finished all your Christmas shopping yet? No? Shame on you! HA!

Totally just kidding you. I haven’t gotten anywhere close. This year has been a whirlwind and I’ve felt about a month behind each holiday as they come. So if you’re like me, then you’ll really enjoy this last-minute gift idea that takes no time at all and comes straight from your heart.

I can’t take the credit for this one, I came across it the other day at Happy Go Lucky and thought I have got to do this! I had seen the idea of it on Pinterest before, but wasn’t sure that it worked. So I was glad to have found proof that it does.

DIY Mugs Before DIY Personalized Gift Mugs

 

To try this out for myself, I didn’t want to spend a bundle on mugs. Even Dollar Tree is a bit expensive per mug for me. So I ran into Goodwill where there were a ton of white mugs. Whodathunkit? It was meant to be! $.49 per mug and you just can’t beat that, even with a stick.

It’s as simple as using a permanent marker to write, draw, or color on your mugs and then pop them into a preheated oven for 30 minutes. That’s 350° in the oven to be exact. When they come out, the marker has been baked, sealing it to the mug!

UPDATE PLEASE READ: I mentioned this in the comments, but DO NOT PUT THESE IN THE DISHWASHER. Using regular sharpies, it will come off. Hand washing is fine. When I gave these out, I wrote a little poem to go with that said please hand wash. I know many of you have had issues with this.

So easy and yet so thoughtful. Even the kiddos can make their own. Get creative and have fun! You can make these for any occasion as well. Add a heart for Valentine’s Day or an egg for Easter. Whatever suits your fancy.

In the meantime, Merry Christmas!

Once again: do not put these through the dishwasher unless you use a more permanent type of marker made for ceramic. The Sharpie works fine if hand washed.
