Gadget Christmas Gifts: What to Look For

Perhaps the best guide for picking the perfect gift is to really think about the individual who will be getting the gift: What does he or she like? Is this a practical-minded person or someone who treasures things whimsical and lighthearted?

Whatever the criteria, we can help you find something splendid to put under the tree. The free spirits and the techies in your life will be happy indeed if you shop with the following in mind:

It's always a delight to receive a gift and even better when that wrapping paper comes off and the present is exactly what you've been longing for. Giving that kind of excitement to your loved ones takes a bit of effort, but it's well worth it.

Just try thinking as they would, consider their tastes, then go even further and wonder what they would love to have but would never buy for themselves. Even spending just a few minutes doing this can not only spark fun gift ideas, but it's also a heartwarming reminder of why this person has a special place in your life.

It's always awkward to watch someone pull an oddball present out of a gift bag and gamely smile while you can see them struggling to find tactful words to say thank you when you know darned well they're really thinking, "What am I going to do with this?" It's great, however, to give a gift that utterly delights your loved one.

You know your Star Wars-obsessed brother will be tickled to unwrap the Star Wars Remote Control Millennium Falcon and send it flying. And the adventurous music lover in your life will enjoy taking along the Fugoo Tough Portable Rugged Bluetooth Speaker on their next excursion. This speaker is designed to handle rough environments such as the outdoors or a workshop while producing rich, high-quality sound.

One of the joys of the holiday season is that you don't have to always stick with the script. If you have carefully considered what a particular individual is like, maybe this is the year to give something a bit different. Perhaps your young niece seems all frills and lace on the outside, but after hearing a couple of people talk about how well she does in science class, maybe an Omano OM117L microscope would be the perfect present. This could be the gift your niece would never ask for but one she would love now and that might open amazing new vistas for her.

From the fun loving to the back-to-basics, our gift-giving guide should help you get a great head start on that often-difficult task of writing out your Christmas list. From the gadgetheads to the preppers in your life, our list has a selection of both the useful and entertaining items that might suit those special people in your life.
