1) e-Reader: Good ones are Kindle, Nook or Nook Color
These are wireless reading devices with built in WiFi so you can browse the Web and purchase e-books to read on them.

a "Lend Me" application that allows you to lend and borrow books from other Nook users.
3) Ipad: It's a tablet computer with a 9.7" diagnol display screen. You can browse the web, watch movies, photos,
read e-books, and download lots of various apps. Many different manufacturers are coming out with their own versions, so
take a careful look at the many different features of each. (Price $500)
These game consoles with sensors will get everyone off the couch and
into the game! The sensors attach to your game box and interpret your body
movements so you do not need an actual controller in your hands.
If you see a
ball on the screen, you kick it. Playing tennis, swing your arm. Do workouts along with the game. You are a part
of the game. My kids are begging me for this!!
5) 3-D HDTV: My family loves our new Samsung big screen Plasma TV! Watch 3D TV at home during family movie night. It's amazing to see and a great way to get your family together!
Most brands include at least 2 Active Shutter glasses for the viewer to create the 3D effect. You may purchase additional 3D glasses. About $100 each.
6) Digital Camera: If you don't have one yet, now is the time to get them. The prices have come down and more
features have been added. Look for high megapixel (at least 8 MP) and wide optical zoom (4X is good). We are very
happy with our Canon Powershot SD 12 MP 4X zoom. Easy to use and takes great photos. digital cameras
7) TiVo TCD652160 HD Digital Video Recorder It controls cable TV with record, pause, rewind and fast forward in HD.
You can record all your shows in HD while watching another . Great gift for the person who loves to watch TV and
maybe is not home often enough to do it. (Price around $250)
Now for the non-electronic cool Christmas gifts:
8) Recordable Storybooks for kids (Hallmark): You can record your own voice reading the story. Your child will
be able to playback you reading the story to them at anytime. What a great idea!
10) This is such a cool Christmas gift: A Laptop or Ipad sleeve made from your favorite Tee shirt.
will take your (or someone else's) favorite tee and sew it into a fleece lined laptop sleeve. What a
great use for that old tee shirt you love but is too ratty to wear - let your computer wear it. A bonus is that this
company donates part of their proceeds to support the victims of sex trafficing in NYC. A worthy cause. (Price $49)
11) For those of us who can remember back when...A really cool Christmas gift would be classic TV shows on DVDs! Remember the wholesome comedies that made us laugh?!
