I have got gifts on the brain BIG TIME right now. My husband’s birthday was 3 weeks ago (and he STILL doesn’t know what he wants for his present!), my oldest daughter had a birthday over the weekend, and my birthday is just a few weeks away.
Also, August is the month when I do a present inventory for Christmas. I have 28 people on my Christmas gift list, with the majority of those people being adorable nieces and nephews, so it takes some rather intense organization to get all of their gifts together and not be absolutely losing my mind in December. I’ve conducted my inventory now so I know exactly where my gift “holes” are and the price point I’m looking to spend in each case.
And by the way, the men have nothing. They always have nothing. Why are they so tough?!?!
One of my go-to spots for birthday or Christmas gifts for the men on my list is Best Buy. I’m never starting from scratch when I head to the Best Buy website because they have gift ideas based on the interests of the person you are buying for and your budget. LOVE that feature! I don’t know about the men in your life, but the men in my life, 9 times out of 10, say, “I don’t know” when I ask them what gift ideas they could give me. Best Buy NEVER has that answer, thankfully!
If you check out the gift ideas page, you can search for him, her, kids and teens, and then you can look for gifts under $25, gifts from $25-$49.99, gifts from $50-$99, gifts from $100-$249.00, and for the gift-giving ballers out there, gifts over $250.
Make a Wish List
One of my favorite discoveries is that now you can create your own wish list on the Best Buy site. I’m going to have my husband create one immeiately because he is notorious for randomly thinking of cool tech gifts that he wants, TELLING NOBODY, and then forgetting his idea. Now he can just add that cool item to his wish list and I can refer to it any time!
The wish list can also really help families and friends pool resources. If you notice that your teenage nephew, for example, wants an iPad REALLY bad for his birthday, instead of everyone buying him $30 presents, put it all together to get him the one thing he really wants! Want to see the first thing he added? Click here! Classic…
Fun fact: September is the most popular birthday month out of the year. So the odds are good that you’ve got some birthday presents to buy in the not-so-distant future. Encourage your loved ones to set up a Best Buy wish list, and definitely check out the gift ideas before doing your shopping. I hope this makes birthday AND holiday shopping a bit easier for you this year!
