Tech gifts that will keep the kids happy

The holidays are here and all my kids are asking for are techy gadgets.  They want iPods and cell phones and video games.  My oldest wants his own laptop and my youngest wants his own iPod Touch.  It’s hard to keep up and know what to get.

I’ve been looking over the Best Buy website trying to decide what would work best for my kids.  Christmas is SO close and I haven’t even started shopping!  I’m HORRIBLE, I know.  I’ve been super busy though.  I’ve picked out what I think would be the perfect gifts for each of my children, check them out:

The Nintendo 3DS XL is the perfect gift for my youngest.  He is 6-years-old and loves video games.  When we go out in the car he is always bored, so taking this would make life so much easier on all of us.  I love how this one is in blue and black.  It is my son’s favorite colors!

My daughter loves music and will listen (read sing) all day long.  The Apple iPod Touch 16GB MP3 Player is perfect for her.  She would love to have music with her everywhere that she goes.  The white color on this one is perfect, as well.  It’s sleek.  I think she would melt if I picked this up for her!

My 12-year-old already has a cell phone and bought his own iPod Touch, so he wouldn’t need anything like that.  I’d love to get him the Asus 11.6″ TouchScreen Laptop.  It would be great for when he wants to surf the web and really awesome to get him off MY computer when he has school work to do!

Actually that laptop is pretty cool, I’d actually love one for myself!  *hint*hint* for when my husband reads over this!

There are actually so many things on the Best Buy site that I’d love to get for my kids.  I feel like a kid in a candy store!  There is a huge selection, more than you can probably find anywhere.  I’ve never had an issue finding exactly what I wanted when I’m shopping Best Buy.  If I place an order online, I can get free shipping (extended through 1/3/13) and same-day pick up in the store, if the item is available.  Super cool and makes life so much easier.  No running store to store or having problems finding the perfect gift.  Buy it online and stop by the store to pick it up.  They are offering this service all the way through 3pm on Christmas Eve!  Pure bliss!  Last minute shopping is no biggie!

    I really hope I could buy those for my kids too! Times are rough and finances are quite tough so I am not sure if I am getting them expensive this Christmas.

    The hubby is making her a huge dollhouse out of scrap wood. I hope it will be okay for her :)

I love comments!
