I know many parents feel the way I do when it comes to Holiday gifts for themselves.  It is easy to spend money on our children, but when asked what items are on our own wishlists, the answers do not come as easy.  Well, I should say that it is not easy to come up with gift ideas for yourself that you do not feel guilty asking for.  What I want to say is that I really want an Asus Tablet with Windows RT that will replace one of the laptops I use for blogging and working with graphics or a new stove because ours is old and rusty.  After I have had some more time to think about it, I was able to come up with a few items I would love to receive for Christmas this year and they're all under $100.00 at Best Buy!

1.  The first thing on my wishlist is the Nokie Lumia 920 Windows Phone (in red please).  I am already a fan of Windows phones and am an AT&T customer.  I am happy with my Samsung Focus, but would not mind an upgrade.  I think the Lumia 920 would make a great gift for anyone who is a Windows user on their PC and is looking for an easy transition into a powerful smartphone.  Not to mention that this phone has an 8.0MP PureView Carl Zeiss lens for people like me, who loves to take tons of high quality photos, but would rather not lug my D-SLR with me everywhere I go.  This phone is available at Best Buy and for just $99.99 with a new 2-year contract and it comes with Free Shipping!

2.  The second item on my wishlist would be the Canon SELPHY CP900 Wireless Compact Photo Printer.  We have a great multi-function printer for home office use, but it does not print photos with accuracy as far as color and brightness goes.  What's the point of getting that frame-worthy shot if you cannot get a quality print to frame?  This printer is super-compact at 5"H x 7"W x 2.4"D and would fit easily into my tiny little office space at home.  I have very few photos in my photo albums because I do not have the convenience of a photo printer.  With this printer, I could print new 4x6 photos to go in my albums every week!  This Canon photo printer is currently on sale at Best Buy and for just $69.99 (Regularly $99.99) plus Free Shipping.

3.  The last item on my wishlist is the Jill-e Small Camera Bag in Black.  Since I am an amateur photographer who still has not learned how to properly use her D-SLR, this bag is perfect for me because it holds one camera body and up to 3 lenses.  I like this bag because it looks professional, but could easily pass as a handbag.  This Jill-e camera bag is currently on sale for just $95.98 (Regularly $159.99) with Free Shipping from and in Best Buy stores!

Need some more ideas?  Checkout all these under $100 gift ideas for women, men, teens, and kids.  If you are all for avoiding the busy parking lots and crowded stores like me, then you'll be happy to know that is currently offering Free Shipping on everything through January 2nd, 2013!  Just remember, if you are having your items shipped, then you'll need to place your order by December 19th.  Also remember that you can purchase in-stock items online and pick-up these items at your local store through 3pm on Christmas Eve!

    I agree with you, I too feel a little guilty asking for something. I would love to have a Kitchen Aid mixer, to replace my cheap ten dollar mixer that I have had for years. I think I will be wishing for the Canon Sureshot A2300 that Best Buy suggested. My old one stored the pictures on a floppy disk and power charger finally went out.. I have stacks of floppy disks that I need to convert to DVD. I think that camera is almost 15 years old,. and who has a floppy disk anymore.

    @karenmed409: If Santa doesn't bring you that camera, you should just buy it for yourself after Christmas! The Free Shipping last through January 2nd. :D

    I noticed that Best Buy is selling items that I would have never thought I could find there.

    My mom has been looking for a photo printer because she;s not sure how to upload them. not very tech savvy. This is a really good gift idea to get her

  5. Best Buy has such great deals I love to shop there for all my electronic needs. I would love to have a better camera I don't think Santa is bringing me one this year though.
