Often it is easier to just not leave the house and buy birthday gifts online because there is so much to choose from at a finger tip’s stroke. Some of the hardest gifts I have to purchase are for my oldest son’s TEEN friends as this is the age of ‘cool’ and not everything you buy is always a great idea, so selecting the right birthday gifts are key. I stick with a few tips and tricks that let me get birthday gifts right each and every time I hear the word birthday and have to shop! Here’s to Lavishly live birthday gifts and birthday gift buying out loud as I offer a few tips and tricks to make birthday gifts so much easier to buy.

Here’s the tips I figured out from using the Best Buy Tools for finding the best birthday gifts.
Tip Number One: Figure out who you are buying for and what is age appropriate
This may be the hardest thing to figure out.

It is the tipping point so to speak for birthday gifts. Knowing what will make the perfect birthday gift can be hard!

I bet that this will helps you quickly zero-in on the right gifts for the right people.
Tip # 2 Establish a Price Point
As I look into what my oldest son’s friends might want, it is the gift of tech, but let’s face it, I am not going to purchase the whole phone, tablet or computer they are looking for, but I might offer things that go well with those things or even gift cards. The starting point for any great gift is determining a Price Point. Best Buy can help as the gift idea pages offers gift ideas for Gifts under $25, gifts from $25-$49.99, gifts from $50-$99.99, gifts from $100-$249.99, and gifts over $250. That was easy right?

If you know what the Top Tech Gifts are, chances are you can buy something around that gift or offer a gift that accompanies what they might already have. Best Buy has a Top Tech Gifts list which can help inspire your purchase and aide you in your buying decision! Are you ready to shop for gifts ?
Tip #4 A Gift Card Is Always Great
Are you still scratching your head with all the choices and really just opting to send something that encompasses anything that the birthday person might like? That’s even easier: Sometimes you need a gift card! Click the gift card link to buy a Gift Card we can ship to them, or an ‘E-Gift Card’ that will be delivered instantly via email.
