Did you get some gift cards this holiday? How about any Best Buy Gift Cards? I have a little tech wish list of items in case Santa forgets something or if I want to add on to tech gifts that I do get – just in case. When we did the #UltimateShowroom Twitter party recently I added a few more things to that list even!

There are various accessories that always seem to be needed after the holidays like cables, cords, cases, cards, and others. Best Buy Gift Cards are often used for these things since they have a huge assortment in the store and I can get them right away and have my new gifts up and running in no time. Plus the post-holiday sales are fabulous and I can get some great deals!


iSimple BluStreat Bluetooth Factory Radio Module at Best Buy

At the top of my list is an accessory for my car and smartphone. My car does not have Bluetooth built into it so I need an easy way to listen to my music from my Nokia Lumia 928 or Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (yes, I’m a two smartphone kind of gal right now) through my car stereo. Plus, I want to be able to talk hands free as well. This iSimple BluStream Bluetooth Factory Radio Module has good ratings and a reasonable price and should do exactly what I need!

Samsung Soundbar at Best Buy

We love our Samsung TV but it does need a bit of help with the sound and our old surround sound unit is really on its last leg so I think Hubby and I might head to Best Buy and pick up a Samsung 2.1 Channel Soundbar with a Wireless Subwoofer. That would complete our home entertainment system in the family room for sure.


SanDisk 32GB Memory Card at Best Buy

It seems I always need memory cards for a camera, I like the SanDisk memory cards, like this SanDisk Ultra 32GB, a lot and usually stick with them when I need a new one. We use this in my DSLR camera, point-and-shoot digital cameras, and even in Hubby’s field cameras. It is nice to have a few extra of these for special times of the year, like holidays, if you take a ton of pictures.

Case Logic Camera Holster at Best Buy


Something else for my DSLR camera is a small case for when I just want to take the camera and a single lens with me. I have a large bag that first multiple items, but it is a bit bulky. Something like this Case Logic Camera Holster Case would be perfect!

Jawbone UP24 Wristband at Best Buy

In 2014 I am continuing my weight loss and getting healthier and after hearing how much so many of my friends love their Jawbone UP I think I need one myself. The Jawbone UP24 Wristband tracks your steps, active time, idle time, calories burned and your sleep even which will be great too since I do have sleeping issues often and it might help the doctor to help me. This is going to be an item I splurge on for me I think.

Conair Hot Rollers at Best Buy

Even my hair has gadgets and I am in need of a portable set of hot rollers since I travel fairly often. The Conair MiniPRO Compact Hot Rollers should do the trick so I am watching the Best Buy post-holiday sales for this to go on sale.

Angry Birds Star Wars Xbox One at Best Buy

And finally, if you were really, really good this year, maybe Santa brought you an Xbox One. I know it is on my list! So I’m hoping to need to head to Best Buy to pick up Xbox One games like Angry Birds: Star Wars for Xbox One! Want to come over and play a game with me?

So what did Santa bring for you that needs accessories? Or did Santa forget one of the items on your list that you can pick up at Best Buy?

I have pin straight baby fine hair, I wonder if not rollers would do anything to add some volume to my hair.

Hmm if anything I would have enjoyed a windows based tablet. I like the way they look and everything the reviews have said about them.

Well, I did not have those Conair MiniPRO Compact Hot Rollers on my list, but now that you mention them…my birthday IS coming up in March…

I JUST put my Best Buy gift card in my wallet when I came across this post! I’m thinking about the activity tracker too. ‘Tis the season to get healthy, after all!
