The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. The term “geek” or “nerd” sure has changed since I was in school! Gone are the pocket protectors, tapes glasses and endless wedgies. Now we have an image of a smart, savvy and sometimes sexy technophile who has a collectoin of gadgets, games, consoles and audio products in their collection. If you have one of these folks on your holiday gift list, finding them the perfect gift can be overwhelming. Many people who buy tech gifts think they need to know everything there is to know about technology. That is so far from the truth! There is only one thing you need to know and that is, where is the best place to shop for gifts for the geek? That place my friend would be Best Buy!


I have several nerdy types on my holiday shopping list. I have an IT guy, a STEM student, a gamer and a social media junkie. It blows my mind all the technology this group has and also knows about. I am at a loss when it comes to what to buy for them, which is why it is such a relief to let Best Buy guide me with all my tech related purchases. With Expert Service and Unbeatable Price these top gifts are on my list this Holiday and here’s why they should be on yours:

Both of my daughters are musically inclined. They both sing, play several instruments and are never far from an Mp3 player. For them, audio gifts make perfect sense and  Best Buy has JBL for superior sound and easy portability with headphones and Bluetooth speakers.


At Best Buy you will find:

  • JBL Charge 2: 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. The JBL Charge 2 sells for $130 at Best Buy online and in stores.
  • JBL Flip 2: 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. The Flip 2 is just $100 at both Best Buy online and at your local Best Buy store.
  • JBL Reflect Earbud Headphones: Selling for $100, 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.

My son is a huge gamer and he is ready to make the move from his Xbo 350 to the more sophisticated VBox One. Thankfully, Best Buy has Xbox One consoles at unbeatable prices as well as plenty of games. Right now, you can save $50 on Xbox One consoles and the games are buy two, get the third one free!



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.
