Last Minute Holiday Gifts from Best Buy


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. Hey guys! Any last minute shoppers here? I still have a few things to pick up, but that's totally normal for me. Every year is the same thing around here, I drill Richard and Jake for Christmas ideas and they act like it's torture giving me suggestions for presents! I mean obviously technology related items are always on the list - video games, WoW stuff, etc. and I know I can get that stuff from Best Buy. Plus, every time we spend money at Best Buy we earn rewards. Several times a year, Richard gets an email with a reward gift certificate. Pretty awesome! Anyway, I wanted to share a few last minute gift suggestions in case you're still searching for the perfect gift. The Xbox One: It's pretty easy to say the Rowells are a gaming family. PC, console, board, card - we play them all. The Xbox One is the newest console from Microsoft and would … [Read more...]

Cameras at Best Buy #HintingSeason

DI multi Nikon D5300back

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. Best Buy has all the best cameras to capture your favorite moments this Holiday season. My favorite type of pictures are candids, I love catching people in the act of sharing something, most often a laugh. We tend to get together, eat, and then spend the rest of the time making fun of each other. That's how we roll. I do like to take posed photos as well, but it's super hard when both Richard and Jake breathe fire and foam at the mouth complaining that they don't like their picture taken. Womp womp, too bad! Anyway, I wanted to share some of the top cameras available at Best Buy. Whether you're upgrading your own or purchasing as a gift, you can trust Best Buy to have a great selection and amazing prices. The rewards program is totally worth it too, Richard often gets emails with rewards certificates. I hope your subjects are a little more … [Read more...]

New Gift Guide Additions – Chapstick and PEEPS

Holiday mixstix

2014 Holiday Gift Guide Stocking Stuffers Featured Product! See the rest of the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide here! I've always loved finding fun things to stuff in stockings. I personally think it should be a good mix of candy or treats and useful things like a hat or gloves. I was sent Chapstick in Candy Cane and the new ChapStick Mixstix Vanilla Candy Cane Milkshake which is vanilla on one side and candy cane on the other. Wear either or mix them, whatever flavor you feel like. ChapStick has long been an addition to stockings around here. Iowa winters are pretty harsh and very dry, especially on your lips. ChapStick helps keep your lips moisturized without feeling greasy. The new flavors are festive and fun! Mixstix also come in Lemon Berry Sorbet and Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Snag a few to stuff in stockings this year! Want to connect with ChapStick? Follow the links below!

Also sent was a pizza cutter rocker blade which is super helpful in cutting pizzas which we do make often. The Spoon & Strain Tongs look promising as I hate it when I'm eating pasta and it's watery. They would be useful with vegetables, too! … [Read more...]
