BURNABY, BC, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - Looking to entertain and be entertained this holiday season? With consumer electronics still at the top of many wish lists, a little luxury goes a long way this holiday season. But luxury doesn't need to come with the price tag to match - this year's gifts are all about making sure Santa gets the best value for his money.
And although everyone wants the biggest gift under the tree, great things come in small packages too.
No.6 - For the bookworm in your life, give the gift of reading convenience! The Sony Reader Touch Edition can hold up to 350 books, so no matter where you are, you're never short on literary entertainment. With a 6" display and touch screen, it's far more compact than your typical paperbacks and makes the perfect travel companion. At $399.99, it's available in black, red or silver and will be a welcome addition to any library. http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10129242&catid=28386
No.5 - Work, play and stay connected anywhere with a dynamic duo - the Acer Aspire Netbook and Bell Turbo stick. The 10.1" SD LED widescreen display and near full-size keyboard makes working a breeze and the built-in webcam and mic lets you stay in touch with friends and family no matter where you are over the holidays. Just plug the Bell Turbo stick into the USB port and everywhere you go is a virtual hotspot, so Santa can find you anywhere. For a limited time, get the Acer Netbook free with the purchase of the Bell Turbo stick with in-store activation on a 24-month contract. Reliable on-the-go computing doesn't need to break the bank! http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?sku_id=0926INGFS10125652&catid=28597&logon=&langid=EN
No.4 - Talk and text in style and safety with the Sony Ericsson c905 handset and Sony Ericsson Mobile Bluetooth Headset. With an 8.1 Cyber-Shot point-and-shoot camera with Smile Shutter, Face Detection, and Smart Contrast, the c905 makes sure you never miss a great shot! Keep yourself entertained on-the-go with a built-in MP3 player and FM radio tuner. At $199 (on a 3-year plan) you'll be talking, texting, listening to the latest songs and snapping great photos for a great price. But Santa reminds you that it's never a good idea to talk and text while sleighing (or driving), so stay safe with the Sony Ericsson Mobile Bluetooth. At $105, it comes in a variety of colours and patterns so it will be sure to match your own personal style. http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10128340&catid=25773 http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10088558&catid=27235No.
No.3 - Whether you're travelling or gathered at home with friends and family, you'll want to cherish those memories forever. With the Flip MinoHD 4GB Pocket Camcorder, you'll be able to record all the laughter and joys of the season on a device that fits right in your pocket. High quality video doesn't need to come at a high quality price. The Flip will have minimal impact on your wallet and maximum impact on your family stories. User-friendly and able to record up to 120 minutes of video, it's the perfect addition to every celebration. http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10124434&catid=27526
No.2 - The holidays may be over faster than we'd like, but we have our photos for posterity. A great way to get them off the computer and out where you can enjoy them is with a Digital Picture Frame. Watch your holiday memories scroll through in brilliant colour and quality or pre-load it with your favourites to share with friends and family who live far away. At less than $70, the 8" Smartparts Premium Digital Picture Frame is a great way to keep those memories alive year-round. http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10126717&catid=27201
No.1 - Rock out, Beatles style with your friends or family! What better way to entertain and be entertained than with one of the most loved bands of all time. You can be John, Paul, Ringo or George and play your way through their historic music repertoire in venues from the Cavern Club to the roof at Saville Row. Available for Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360, Rock Band: The Beatles Special Value Edition is a necessity for the music and gaming lovers on your list. http://www.bestbuy.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0926INGFS10129110&catid=24336
