This year on Black Friday, I was sitting at home, shopping online getting great deals. I have had my budget set for a while, and had a pretty good idea of the type of gift I wanted for each person on my list. The goal of shopping on Black Friday for me, is to get the ideal gift for each recipient within the confines of my budget. The Black Friday sales, and those that will continue up until Christmas, will help me stay on target with as little stress as possible this holiday season.
For Her: FitBit. At the start of the new year, so many of us make resolutions to get healthier. A Fit Bit can help you reach your goals.It will sync up with your mobile phone and has Blue Tooth capability to help you track your progress. It tracks steps taken, distance traveled, and calories burned automatically.
For Him: Garmin. I don’t know about the men you’ve taken road trips with in your life, but my experience has been that men do not like to stop and get directions. They do, however, love electronic devices. An electronic device that gives them directions is the perfect gift, in my opinion. I use the GPS Navigator on my phone, but this mounts to the dash, gives directions, and shows a map with turn by turn directions. Think of all the fights this would prevent. Essentially, you are giving him a new toy, and you peace when driving in the car 🙂
For Teens: Wii-U. Teens love the latest video games, and there are games for this console that both girls and boys will enjoy. It’s priced just under $300, which may be a tad expensive for your budget, but I take into consideration how many hours of family entertainment and bonding time we can get out of a system. The teen years can be versatile, and if you can find an activity to do together, in your home, with the initial investment being the bulk of the cost, it’s something to consider splurging on.
For Kids: Leapster Learning Center The regular price is $57.99 but it is today’s Deal of the Day, so it’s priced at just $39.99.

Why did I choose to do my shopping at Best Buy? Well, I started my shopping using my well known favorite cash rebate site so I’d get cash back on my purchase. I also know that Best Buy offers an extended price match guarantee, so I feel like I am getting a great value for my money, and peace of mind that I am getting the wish list items at the best price available. I love how convenient it is. They had all of the items I was looking for in stock, with free shipping (or same day in store pickup), and an extended exchange policy so should anyone I bought for get duplicate gifts, we can swap one out for something else without a hassle. I also trust the expertise of in store associates, reviews on the website, and suggested gift items shown online, for a few hard to buy for people.
