The year is about to end and everyone is scrambling to get their hands on the best gifts to give for the holidays. Websites dedicated to reviewing apps, gears, gadgets, mobile phones, and other electronic products are now releasing their own lists of the best gadgets you could give to your boyfriend (or girlfriend, perhaps?), son, uncle, and even godchildren for Christmas. Most of them are probably way over your budget but you know deep inside every penny spent is well worth it.
For example, tablets are great gadget gifts no matter what time of year you give – Valentine’s, birthdays, anniversaries – name it. Your boyfriend will probably say you’re the best girlfriend ever if you give him the latest Apple tablet on his birthday. Apart from a man’s stomach, another way to win his heart is through buying him toys for the big boys. Apple products are probably not for everyone and you’ll find one or two who aren’t big fans of the multinational corporation. An equally-amazing alternative would be the Samsung Galaxy Tab, which is available in three different sizes – 10.1, 8.9, and 7.0 Plus. If your boyfriend is a booklover (lucky you!), give him the Amazon Kindle Fire that doubles as an e-book reader and gaming tablet. Web browsing, music playing, and other basic features of a tablet is also offered by the Kindle Fire.
You’d think that Apple’s iPhones killed portable and handheld gaming consoles. These gadgets will never disappear even with a fierce competition such as the iPhone. Hey, some kids still prefer their PSPs or NDS over iPhones. Let’s just say even parents feel the same way, since handheld gaming gadgets are definitely more durable, perfect for kids who like throwing things around when they lose a battle. There are so many options to choose from the Nintendo Family. You have the 3DS, which revolutionizes 3D gaming probably because of its size. You also have the DSi and DSi XL, both of which are older than the 3DS model but still offer amazing graphics and gameplay. Of course, what kid wouldn’t want to receive a PSP on Christmas? PSPs are must-have for every child and you wouldn’t want your kid, niece, nephew, or godchild to be the only one without one, wouldn’t you?
Gamers like their computer peripherals to be top of the line – all the time. Cheat Code Central recommends two gamer-specific peripherals that you can buy. The Cyborg R.A.T. 9 Gaming Mouse is perfect for gamers who just couldn’t find the right-sized mouse because of their big hands. For $130, gamers are sure to get their money’s worth with this one. It’s responsive and accurate, making first-person shooter games the best stress reliever ever. Wireless headsets, on the other hand, offer not portability but also impressive sound quality. A few gaming headphones that you can check out are the Logitech F450 Wireless Headset, Turtle Beach Ear Force PX5, and Sound Blaster Tactic 3D Omega Wireless.
Finally, laptops. Contrary to hardcore gamers, laptops are quickly becoming a popular alternative to desktops when it comes to gaming. Gaming enthusiasts can take them anywhere and play with their beloved games just by hooking it up with an Internet connection. Gaming laptops are manufactured with one thing in mind – gaming, and so purchasing one means you will get the best specifications exactly for that purpose only. If you are willing to spend thousands of dollars on a gift, opt for the Alienware brand – the finest manufacturers of gaming laptops and desktops. You can even have them build a custom gaming laptop just for your loved one, assuming of course, that you know what they like.
