Whether you’re shopping for him, for her, or for the kids, there are tons of great gift ideas to help you cross those last couple of people off your holiday shopping list.   1. GoPro Floaty Backdoor If you know someone in your life is getting a GoPro for Christmas, you can send them one of the many cool accessories for this rugged camera. If you plan to use your GoPro while surfing, swimming, diving, or sailing, you need some sort of floatation device to keep your GoPro from sinking to the murky bottom. Not only does this floaty backdoor provide flotation, but it also makes the GoPro a lot easier to spot in churning water. For GoPro users that get anywhere close to a body of water, this is kind of a must-have accessory. If your lucky giftee doesn’t normally go near the water, you might prefer the LCD Touch BacPac. Price: $10.99 (45% off) Buy it here   2. Nest Learning Thermostat While Nest itself may be kinda pricey, it basically pays for itself over time with the energy savings you get.

Both weekends, you can find information about these sales by scanning ads in the Sunday newspapers or by checking your favorite retailers’ websites. But wait until the following Monday to make purchases online. By then competitors may have matched prices or even started a price war.

But massive general-interest sites, such as, host special Black Friday events throughout the weekend, along with “lightning deals,” price reductions that are offered for a short time period (last year a $230 video camera was marked down to $110).
