Shopping for the holidays isn’t exactly the easiest job in the world. Even if you don’t think about the economy or the recession, the thought of buying things for dozens of people in the family can be daunting. To make your shopping easier, here are some great electronic items you can gift this holiday season:
1. iPhone/Motorola Droid
Let’s make this thing simple: if your loved one is on AT&T, get him/her an iPhone. If he/she is on Verizon, go with the Motorola Droid. Both are the hottest phones on the market right now. The Droid is the newest entrant challenging the incumbent iPhone. Both have oodles of features that will make any gadget freak drool. Perfect gifts for the holidays.
2. Amazon Kindle
Do you know someone who loves to read books? If yes, then gift him/her the Amazon Kindle. This digital book reader is one of the most popular gift items this holiday. Featuring a superb quality screen that reads like normal paper, capacity to hold thousands of books, and the ability to download books from the internet anytime anywhere (not to mention the ability to read newspapers) make the Kindle a must have for any self-confessed boo lover.
3. Microsoft Xbox 360/Sony PlayStation 3/Nintendo Wii
Here are a few tips when picking these gaming consoles:
a) The Xbox 360 is for the hardcore gamers. Gift it to your 15 year old nephew, not your 55 year old aunt.
b) The PlayStation 3 is like the Xbox 360, but features a Blu-Ray movie player. Great for anybody who enjoys a few hardcore games, but also likes to wind up on the couch and watch a few movies.
c) The Nintendo Wii is for the casual gamer. With games like Wii Sports and Wii Fit, this is a gaming console that is perfect for families, women, and anybody who doesn’t have the time to spend hours on a game.
All these three are great electronic gifts to give to your loved ones this holiday season. You can’t really go wrong with any one of these.
