A huge thank you to eBay and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

Every year on Christmas Day, after opening presents and enjoying plenty of laughter and cheer over brunch at my Gram’s, my family and I take a trip to the movies — it’s one of our favorite traditions!

Growing up, the entire family would head out to the theaters in our new gear. Me, in my new UGG boots (which I asked for and received nearly every year throughout my middle and high school years) and my brother in an outfit that he didn’t ask for but was absolutely necessary to accommodate his rapidly growing body. With a bucket of popcorn in hand, we would find ourselves watching one of the many blockbusters of the season, happily entranced in whatever story, as it came to life on the big screen with surround sound.

How Our Fam Is Recreating The Theater Experience At Home This Season

This year, we won’t be making it to the theaters, so I thought ‘why not bring the movie theater experience to my parents’ house?!’ So, when I talked to my mom and dad about a family soundbar, my dad gave me all the tips and tricks on what to choose from eBay. My dad has been an eBay fanatic for as long as I can remember, and he still is to this day! Most recently, he purchased a Certified Refurbished Apple laptop for my soon-to-be college-going brother.

Our family loves eBay, and the prices and quality have always been perfect for us.

Oh, hey, holiday movies! We're going all-in on the family theater experience, starting with refurbished electronics to make things a li'l greener & more affordable.

eBay’s Certified Refurbished Products Make A Family Gift Win

I decided on a Certified Refurbished Bose Soundbar 500. It has a super-sleek design and such an incredible at-home-theater-quality sound! It’s the perfect addition for our family movie nights, and it arrived several days before it was scheduled to (that’s always a fun surprise!). eBay has a great selection of Certified Refurbished Bose products that also come with a two-year warranty. I love that this was sold directly from the manufacturer at a low and affordable price. A win-win in my book!

After doing some research, I found that eBay had the best prices available, and what I personally love, is that Certified Refurbished (aka previously loved, but made new again) products are a great way to be mindful of what we’re buying while being environmentally conscious, too. And the icing on the cake? eBay has implemented a new shopping event called Green Monday that offers incredible savings on Certified Refurbished products! Not only will you find some of those pricier items like Dyson, KitchenAid, and Bose for a more affordable price, you’ll also be helping to recycle and eliminate waste for our planet.

In addition to eBay’s great prices, they also have Daily Deals where you can find the newest products to come to the site!

  1. We have this soundbar and love it too! GAH and I keep looking at that Dyson as well!

    Most of all, though, I wanted to tell you how delightful it was to see the pictures of you and your little bro. How you’ve written about him has always made it clear to me you have a ton of affection for him and he for you as well. And? That love and joy is ALL OVER your faces in those pictures. So happy you guys have this time to spend together, especially this year. Enjoy!
