Best Holiday Gifts From Best Buy! {Plus Giveaway!}

It should come as no surprise that Best Buy is first place I visit when I start to put together my wish list for Christmas each year. Between the video games, headphones and cameras, I could spend an entire day in one of their stores and never get bored. Knowing how much time I spend there, Best Buy has asked me to share my wish list with all of you and to find out what gifts you are drooling over this holiday season! So, here is my super amazing, ultra fantastical Christmas Wish List!

Call of Duty: Black Ops III

Call of Duty: Black Ops III

I have been playing and loving the Call of Duty series since the very first edition. In fact, I used to be the guy with the bluetooth earpiece that would be playing against other folks online and trash talking like there is no tomorrow! Unfortunately my skills have been in decline over the last few releases but I still love the campaign portion of the game and always leave it set to super easy!

Here is the link to Call of Duty: Black Ops III!!

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera Kit

Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera Kit

We had the opportunity to play around with one of these cameras last summer and my children loved that the pictures came out right after they took them. In the age of digital, this blast from the past has grabbed my children’s attention and made its way onto their lists!

Check out the Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Camera Kit for yourself!

GoPro HERO4 Waterproof HD Sports & Helmet Camera GoPro HERO4 Waterproof HD Sports & Helmet Camera

A GoPro has been at the top of my list ever since I had the opportunity to see what it could do about a year ago. I can’t stop thinking about how cool it will be to attach it to my daughter’s bike or my son’s hockey helmet to get a glimpse of what life looks like through their eyes.

Here is the link for more information on the GoPro HERO4 and other GoPro products!
Guitar Hero Live Bundle

Guitar Hero Live Bundle

Guitar Hero used to be one of my favourite games, so I was sad when they decided to take a little break. It’s more than just smashing on a guitar for a few minutes at a time because we like to involve the whole family with multiple guitars and singing along with all the songs. Furthermore, the song selection is out of this world!

Don’t believe me? Check it out for yourself over at Best Buy’s website!
Disney Frozen Karaoke Machine with Lights

Disney Frozen Karaoke Machine with Lights

For those days where don’t feel like playing a guitar but also want to sing the entire soundtrack to Disney’s Frozen, there is this awesome Frozen themed karaoke machine that my daughter flipped out about upon entering Best Buy.

Ummm, what are you waiting for?? Go get this Frozen Karaoke Machine right now!
Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler

Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler

While we are on the subject of both my daughter freaking out and Disney’s Frozen movie, I present to you something I would like to buy for her solely for the fact that I am jealous this wasn’t around when I was a kid. I’m sure if we put this under the tree on Christmas Day she would give me a ride, right??

I’m not going to lie, the Power Wheels Disney Frozen Jeep Wrangler isn’t cheap but think of the smiles and the new level of parental coolness!!
Star Wars Darth Vader Cool Wall Toaster

Star Wars Darth Vader Cool Wall Toaster

Was this on my list before I went to Best Buy? The truth is no, it was not. Does that mean I can’t want to add a little bit more awesome into my life, especially on the heels of one of the biggest movie releases of all time? I think not! I’m not sure what else I can say about this product other than STAR WARS TOAST!!

Don’t pretend you don’t want a Star Wars Darth Vader Toaster in your life!
Misfit Shine Fitness Tracker

Misfit Shine Fitness Tracker

This was the toughest decision on my list because I knew I wanted a fitness tracker but there are so many different brands out there all claiming to do the same thing. After reading reviews, comparing prices and experience one of them for myself, I think the Misfit Shine delivers the most bang for your buck and actually looks pretty stylish!

You can check out the Misfit Shine Fitness Tracker and other fitness trackers over at the Best Buy website or in store.
Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid

A couple things about the Sphero BB-8 App-Enabled Droid. One, I want this for me and not for my children. I make no apologies for this. Two, I don’t want it just because it is the hottest toy of the year. It is the hottest toy of the year because so many grown men and women want it. So, people who are reading this, if you feel like sending me one of these, I am not going to complain…

Just look at this beautiful Sphero BB-8 Droid and tell me you don’t want it roaming around your home at all times!


I could truly run this list for another 50 items but these are the ones at the very top and things I thought you all would enjoy. To get you started on your way to some great gifts from Best Buy Canada, I am giving away a $200 Best Buy gift card! Giveaway is open to residents of Canada, excluding Quebec and will be emailed to the winner once confirmed. Good Luck!!

    I’d probably choose the GoPro HERO4 Waterproof HD Sports & Helmet Camera since I’d enjoy it with my husband the most to take action shots while going skiing and also snorkeling when we go to Maui in February.

    One thing from Best Buy? A new TV, as ours is on the outs – random flickering, and one of the HDMI ports has no sound. (We’re waiting for Boxing Day sales as our present to ourselves!)

    We just bought a condo so his 4yr old daughter can have somewhere, it needs a lot of renos, I then, was laid off from work, for Christmas it would go towards appliances. 🙂

    Victoria says:

    If I could only choose one it would be the frozen jeep. For years my daughters aged 4 and 5 have been asking for a jeep they can both share. Unfortunately I don’t have that kind of money to be able to get them it. For years I have been trying to get their father to help pay for half but that doesn’t help. So for a single mom that doesn’t have much income I do my best for Christmas for them. But I know they would love it. Pretty awesome contest if I say so. I never enter these as didn’t think anyone actually wins but I figured at least try and see if someone does. Good Luck to everyone (: and Merry Christmas!

    Andrew Sullivan says:

    The last $3000 of tech we’ve purchased in my house has gone to my wife (mac Mini, upgrades, new Surface Pro 3). If I won, I’d probably just buy myself an Xbox One game (Star Wars or CoD BO III) and a hard drive to expand my Xbox One.

    Mark Morell says:

    There are so many fun things but the BB-8 Droid, Guitar Hero live and the new Tomb Raider game look amazing! Thanks for the contest!

  19. Wendy Jensen
    Wendy Jensen says:

    I think I would have to pick a new laptop for my husband. His is pretty old and not working as it should. This would be a good start to purchasing it.
