Every time we go to the Mall of America, we stop in the Verizon store because it’s so much more than a store. It’s an experience. They are always coming out with bigger and better technology that adds value to your life. They don’t just sell tech for tech sake, they have tons of technology products that really make your life easier whether it’s getting fit, jamming to your favorite music, keeping your home safe, or just having a little fun.
When Verizon reached out to me to show me some of their favorite Christmas gift ideas, I was super excited. I’ve been in their store so many times, but this time I would get an awesome tour to find out all the cool things the store offers. There is SO much in the store that it’s easy to miss some really awesome things.
Each of the destination stores is broken up into different lifestyle zones: Get Fit, Amplify It, Home and On the Go, Have Fun, Anywhere Business and Customize It. They all have great technology that you wonder how you have been living without it for so long!

Hum: Hum is an awesome new product that will help keep you safe when you drive. It’s a great program that monitors your car, and tells you what’s going on if you get some alerts, like that lovely check engine light. It even offers 24/7 roadside assistance and offers hands free calling when paired up with your cell phone! This is something that I am going to give my 16 year old daughter, so that I know she is safe when she is driving.
Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: What’s a tech gift list without at least one cell phone on it. If you are looking for a great cell phone to give this year, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is it. It has amazing Android based apps available. The Edge allows you to check alerts and text messages without picking up your phone. That means you can stay connected while enjoying the company you are with in person! It’s a great device! Plus, if you have a phone to trade in you can save some big bucks. It’s super easy to trade too!
Now that you have your last minute Christmas gift ideas, make sure your loved ones know that Verizon also has wireless workshops. They are free classes to help them learn how to use their new devices and accessories! They even have a fun class called Capture It to help them learn how to take amazing photos! Even though I’d been in the store several times, I didn’t know they offered these cool classes. It’s a great way to get more comfortable with the phones and accessories you gift, or are gifted this year!
