Best Buy | Scoring the Best Gifts Thanks to the Blue Shirts!

I’m apparently impossible to shop for.

If you send me to Vegas and you’re all like, “Hey Casey, here’s $1000 to spend,” you’d better believe I’m going all-out!!!

In the nine years we’ve been together, Sarah’s seen firsthand how I operate. When I need something, I usually get it myself. My purchases usually involve a ton of research and consideration before committing, but when I’m ready, I’m not one to wait for permission to add a new tool to my life.

Which makes it really hard to get me Christmas gifts when I’ve already bought the things I’d put on my wishlist months in advance. But my fierce independence didn’t dissuade Best Buy Canada who approached me with a mission—to choose a cool gift for myself from their Top 20 Under $200, a list curated by my helpful local Best Buy Blue Shirt, and find someone on my “nice list” who’d get something too!

I guess there’s plenty of people I could’ve chosen for my nice list, but really—the more I hustle, the more I realise how important my family is to me, and whether good times or bad, they’re always the ones I’ll think of first.

So after making a list (and checking it twice), I saw something I’d always wanted to try, but never saw reason to buy for myself, and added the Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance Starter Kit to our home!

The Best Buy He-Shed — Where Tech and Design Can BOTH Call HOME.

November 10th-12th marked the fourth annual Gentlemen’s Expo here in Toronto, ON, an event designed to show men everything they need to live life to the fullest. From clothes to booze to tech and more, it was a weekend go-to for any man looking to take his game to the next level.

And smack in the middle of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre’s South Building was the Best Buy He-Shed, a men’s haven chock full of stuff that you wouldn’t expect from Canada’s biggest tech retailer!

Designed by the highly-acclaimed Christine Dovey, the Best Buy He-Shed stood as a testament to the traditional man cave, but draped in an aesthetic that made it anything but. The ultimate backyard retreat for the modern man, the He-Shed married chic décor with sleek tech to give enough options for any man to make it a space for relaxation and rejuvenation.

While there, Christine took me on a tour of the space, including chatting with vendors who embodied the tips she laid out for any guy to create a He-Shed that’s both tech-forward and perfectly personalised!
