Great Tech Gifts in Small Packages
I remember when they my kids were toddlers and our Christmas tree was surrounded my bright, colorful toys on Christmas morning. Now, my kids are getting older and they're starting to grow out of the toy phase. Much of their Christmas wish list consists of sports stuff and electronics. My little guy is going loving Skylanders at the moment, and my older son is desperately wanting FIFA 14 so he can get his soccer fix!
The Ultimate Holiday Showroom
Best Buy is unique because they feature more than 100 products sold only at their stores this holiday season. They offer a market-leading selection of the hottest tablets, smartphones, gaming consoles, health and fitness gear, and much more. Buying things online is convenient, but I also like that I can go into the store to check out the products in person. I like the option of asking one of Best Buy's trained staff members for help if I need it.
Low Price Guarantee
These tech items can be expensive, so I'm always checking my email for deals from Best Buy. They understand that price is important to their customers and it’s important to them too. Their Low Price Guarantee helps to ensure that we’re getting the most competitive price possible.
Some of My Favorites
Do you still have shopping to do? I'm not finished with my holiday shopping and I've been checking out the holiday gift guides on Best Buy. Here are few of my favorite items:
How cool is this Samsung Galaxy Tab for Kids? I love the bright colors and the fact that it includes a bumper guard to protect it from those inevitable drops and bumps.
I wasn't sure about Skylanders when I first heard about it, but I can totally see why kids love it. My son would be over-the-moon if he saw Skylanders Swap-Force under the Christmas tree.
Even Barbie is tech savvy now! Let your child transform an Apple iPad into a makeup mirror with this Barbie Y2748 digital makeover kit.

A couple of weeks ago, I got an envelope in the mail from Ebates. I quickly opened it up to see what it was, and it was a check worth nearly $50.00 in my name. I didn't have to do anything extra special to earn it. I didn't have to mail in any receipts or forms. I didn't have to spend hours looking for promo codes or coupons. I just did some of my Christmas & kids' birthday shopping online by going through the Ebates site first, and they sent me a check.
This is why I love Ebates!
Coupons and traditional mail-in rebates don't work for me. I clip some coupons, but I usually forget to use them, and I believe the whole purpose of mail-in rebates is to make money from people who reforget to mail them in. But, Ebates is different, because once you make your purchase, you're done. You don't have to remember to do anything else.
Ebates is a free online rebate site that connects you with about 1200 stores including Target, Kmart, Kohl's, Toys R Us, Land's End, Carter's and The Childrens Place. I've even used it to get money back on hotel stays and airfare. Every time you shop online through Ebates they give you Cash Back (a percentage of your purchase that varies depending on the store).
I signed up a couple of years ago, and every time I get a check, I get a big smile on my face.

There's one thing that most of my friends agree on. No matter how hard you try to get organized and please everyone at dinner-time, meal planning for a busy family can be tough! Sometimes, you get stuck in a rut, and you have no idea what to make for dinner.
A while ago, I heard about eMeals and I started using their meal plans. It made me feel so much more organized and ready for the week. The people at eMeals come up with your entire grocery list for the week along with fresh and healthy recipes to suit your family. It's so refreshing to have your meal plan done for you. You just print off your grocery list, check it off as you go, and voila, you're done.
Picky eaters or pizza night with friends? eMeals has got you covered. If you decide that you don't want a certain meal that's on the plan that week, you just cross those groceries off your list. Each meal is given a number, so that if you choose to skip meal #4, you don't need to buy any of the groceries with the corresponding number. It's that easy.
There are so many different plans to suit your lifestyle. Interested in learning more? Click the image below to find out all about eMeals affordable plans. If you purchase a new plan by February 10th, you can get 15% off with the code "NEWYEAR."
What does quality family time mean to you? I think more and more people are starting to realize that there's a lot more to life than "things." I would much rather spend the afternoon with my family experiencing something new vs. buying a new tech gadget with the same amount of money.
If you're thinking about planning a fun, new family experience, the Harlem Globetrotter's 2013 "You Write the Rules" tour is scheduled to play 270 games in 240 cities across the United States and Canada. The Globetrotters (sweetly referred to as the "Globechoppers" by my seven year old) have been around as long as I can remember and I've heard rave reviews from friends to have been to their shows.
The Harlem Globetrotters love seeing families laugh together during our games, and would love to see your family when we come to a city near you. If you're looking for an awesome event the whole family will enjoy, get your tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters "You Write the Rules" tour.
Your family's smiles will start before you even get to the game because this year, your family can vote at harlemglobetrotters.com, and decide rules for the game like two balls in play at the same time that could affect the final outcome. After the game, Globetrotters will stay on court to sign autographs and take photographs with your kids.
