The X-Mini II Capsule Speakers are one of many great electronic gift ideas for this Holiday season
With the holidays just around the corner, its time to start thinking about gift ideas. Need some help? Here are some electronic gifts that would work for just about anyone, sorted from lowest in price to highest.
X-Mini II Capsule Speaker $20 - a gift idea perfect for any music lover, the X-Mini II Capsule speaker combines a relatively small stature with some great sound quality. Despite being only 3 inches wide, these aren’t your typical mini-speakers. The X-Mini II speakers are much louder than they appear and plug into and charge with any laptop via a USB cable. These speakers are capable of sound levels that allow you to hear music and movies comfortably, so if you know someone who could use speakers, look no further.
Roku LT $49 – The Roku LT is a streaming media box that is essentially a cheaper alternative to the Apple TV. What the Roku LT does is it allows its user to use services such as Netflix, HBO Go, Hulu, and many many others on their TV without any other device. In addition to these paid services there are also free channels such as Crackle that provide access to free movies and music. The Roku LT has both HDMI and AV outputs and supports up to 720p HD video.
TomTom XXL GPS Navigator $99 – The proliferation of smart phones capable of navigation has made the GPS navigation system market very weak, in turn driving down prices on great products. The TomTom XXL Portable GPS Navigator is a great product that offers lifetime traffic and map updates so your directions will never be out of date. With a 5 inch color display that is easy on the eyes as well as the ability to mount it to your windshield, the TomTom is a great product well worth its $99 price.
Apple iPod Touch 4th Generation 8gb $199 – Apple iPods have gotten so technologically advanced that they can essentially do anything a phone can do. You can do just about anything with this device – take pictures, record video, movies, music, send text messages, navigation – you name it. And with new features such as voice commands, iCloud integration, Facetime, and the very useful Notification Center, the newest iPod is one of Apples best releases yet. At less that $200, the iPod Touch is a gift that anyone can appreciate.
Kindle Fire $199 – Amazon has long been trying to sell its Kindle, a device that previously only allowed you to read books on a tablet. We never really had any reason to pay too much attention to the Kindle…until the Fire was released. The Kindle Fire is an excellent product designed by Amazon to compete in the tablet market. The Fire is the first tablet we’ve seen released to actually be worth its price. It has a 7 inch full color touchscreen that is capable of playing music, movies, games, and of course books. At only $200, the Kindle Fire is a bargain. If you found yourself wanting an iPad but weren’t willing to dish out 500 big ones, take a look at the Fire.
