Tech gifts

  • PlayStation 3 Slim – Sony recently released the newest version of their popular video game console. It is smaller and lighter but no less powerful. It has the added plus of using less electricity, making it more environmentally friendly.
  • Video games – from Wii games to PlayStation games to Xbox games, these will surely be a hit for people who own a video game console. One of the most popular titles is The Beatles Rock Band, which has just been released.
  • Apple iPod – everyone wants an iPod! There are countless models to choose from, but the new iPod Nano is a very popular choice, with its FM radio and video recording capabilities.
  • Universal remote – techies who are homebodies will definitely appreciate having a single gadget to control most of the electronics at home. You might even want one of these yourself!

Gifts for kids

  • Hannah Montana stuff – little girls will love you all year round if you get them something Hannah Montana. Whether it’s a simple bag, a CD, or clothing, Hannah Montana merchandise is always a hit!
  • Lamaze toys – these toys will make you a hit with parents who have infants or those who are expecting. The Lamaze Philosophy of Parenting has become accepted by many and their toys are selling like hot cakes.
  • Caster board – boys and girls alike are writing Santa to give them a caster board. This is a variation of a skateboard but the rider does not have to take his feet off the board to make it move. It’s self-propelled, that’s why!

    Why don’t we think outside the box when shopping for Christmas this year? Maybe recycling packages to make lamps, jewelry and cndle holders.

    I agree with the idea that technology will be huge this year. As in past years, video games and electronics in general have sold extremely well. With recent price reductions on every next gen console, these will sell even better. On top of that, the biggest selling game in history was released (COD MW2)and huge selection of hot sequels are available.
    The majority of gifts on my list this year, as well as the childrens’, are either video games or electronics. Guess I’ll see you in line. Good Luck.
