The following article is a sponsored post for Socialstars by Crowdtap, featuring Best Buy’s Last Minute Gifts. #ultimateshowroom -Ed.

So it’s December 20th, and you still haven’t bought presents, have you? Shame on you! But hey, it’s not quite too late, at least not if you check out some of these deals by Best Buy, which you can now pick up more easily thanks to their extended store hours. That’s right: from today the 20th, until December 23rd, all Best Buy stores will remain open until midnight! Pictured above is our pick of what could make three pretty cool last minute presents, but feel free to follow the link at the bottom to see what else is available. There are also some specials, so it might be worth your while to check that out.

Without further ado, here are OhGizmo!’s picks for last minute presents:

Sony PlayStation Vita
Oh sure, there are new consoles out, but that doesn’t mean they have to get all the gaming attention. The PlayStation Vita has been on the market for a while now, delighting gamers young and old alike. Featuring a large “5 inch OLED display that features 960 x 544 resolution and the powerful ARM Cortex-A9 core processor”, this handheld device can keep you entertained for hours on end. Selling now for $174.99, it’s $25 cheaper than usual.

Beats by Dr. Dre – Pill Portable Stereo Speaker
The Beats by Dre brand doesn’t really need much of an introduction anymore. But the Pills is a relatively new product, and it’s one that’s piqued the interest of many. They’re a set of portable speakers that feature 4 individual drivers for a crisp, clear sound. Connecting to your smartphone or tablet through Bluetooth, you don’t need wires to stream up to 7 hours of tunes before the batteries run out. It’s $199, with free shipping.

Toshiba – Symbio Smart Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Player and Media Box
See that fancy HDTV in your living room? You know what else it needs? Yeah, you got it, it needs a decent Blu-ray player. The above is a very capable offering from Toshiba that features WiFi for easy Internet connectivity and a capable media player that supports a variety of formats. The best part is that it’s heavily discounted at $49, after a $70 rebate.

If there’s a time and a place for everything, mornings are definitely the time to feel crummy, complain about how sleepy you are, half-glare at the people around you in a groggy haze, and otherwise try and drag yourself out of the wonderful sleep you were having just minutes ago. But being the geek that I am, I’ve discovered that little technological advances can make some morning steps at least marginally more pleasurable. I’m not saying that technology is the answer to everything, but I’ve found a peculiar sort of delight in streamlining some activities. I’d like to take a minute to explain what I mean.

A few weeks ago, I made my way to Best Buy to buy two small appliances, with the hope of making my mornings better. Yes, the retailer sells more than laptops and PCs, and while browsing their aisles, I settled on a Keurig Elite SingleServe Brewer (B48), and a Philips Sonicare – DiamondClean Rechargeable Toothbrush. I think you see where I’m going with this. Who wants to brew a fresh pot of coffee every morning, or fuss around with instant powder, when there’s an alternative at the ready? And what self-respecting geek wouldn’t look forward to cleaning his teeth with a brush that vibrates at 31,500 “rpm” and charges through electromagnetic induction? Yeah, that was my thinking and here’s how these two machines performed.
