According to the Consumer Electronic Association (CEA) CEA Press Release, October 19, 2009, 80 percent of consumers plan to buy consumer electronic this holiday season. Best Buyâ€™s enhanced online holiday gift center (www.bestbuy.com/giftcenter) can help and offers ideas organized by a range of prices, ages and lifestyles.
Following are some suggestions:
Fashionista: The hottest cameras, phones, gadgets and accessories in popular colors like purple, pink and green will be sure to connect the Fashionista to her world in style. The Apple Ipod Nano has a larger display, video camera and a pedometer for keeping track of those music-motivated work outs. A Sony eReaderin metallic pink will help to get her reading in on the long commute, and a brushed chrome Crosley Corded Wall Phone with faux-rotary will outfit her home in functional, modern-yet-retro style.
Movie and TV Fanatic: The latest home theater options will give the men in your life a larger-than-life spectator experience. Go all-out with the new, ultra-thin Samsung 46″ LED-LCD HDTV and all-in-one Rocketfishâ„¢ with Rocketboostâ„¢ Expandable Wireless Audio package. Or, for the guy on-the-go, the DynexÂ® Widescreen Portable DVD player is a great gift along with stocking-stuffer selections of Blu-ray discs with widescreen.
Young Gamer: Youâ€™ll be sure to score big points with the kids by gifting the latest gaming systems and accessories. The younger generation will flip for the next-generation Nintendo Wii gaming system with a motion-sensitive controller or Microsoft – Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle. Popular family-friendly games like Beatles Rock Band, DJ Hero and Wii Sport will keep the gang entertained way beyond the holiday season.
High Tech Student: Support your studentâ€™s quest for higher learning with the hottest high-tech tools and gadgets. The HP – Special Edition Mini Netbook with IntelÂ® Atomâ„¢ Processor or the innovative 4GB Pulse Smartpen that records audio while you write, will ensure they never miss another word in any lecture or meeting. Mobile devices like phone car-mounts keep the student focused on the road but tapped in to their study buddy. Best Buyâ€™s new gadgets and eReader collections also deliver fun and mental engagement for all ages.
