Gift a gadget!

Bells chiming, cold winds rising, colour in the air…the festive season is here in all its glory! The happy reds and the lush greens of Christmas have all of us in a bit of a tizzy. Christmas brings out the best is in us…it makes us want to indulge and splurge and it brings out our generous side too. It’s the perfect time to get gifting! We put down a list of the FIVE top gifting gadgets this year:


What better gift than the ability to capture and preserve beautiful memories? A digital camera is a good idea for amateur photographers and a DSLR camera is a better option for the professionals. The most exciting camera this season is the Nikon Coolpix S800c – the first Android camera in the UAE. Trust us, this one’s a true delight for the shutterbugs who love to stay connected.

Mobile Phones

Smartphones are all the rage and if you’re planning to get one for your kid, there is no better option. They’ll love you for it! With iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy SIII, Samsung Note II and the Nokia Lumia 920 making their recent foray into the smartphone arena, one is spoilt for choices. Do make sure to go through several brands and types thoroughly as there is no dearth of features and options today.

Music Players

Thinking of gifting a friend or a special someone? Music players are your best bet! They are affordable, colourful, and small and make for a really sweet gift. The reason we love them most is that they’re so very customisable. Unlike other gadgets, you can personalise them with little engravings and even load your favourite songs in it. Voila, here’s your modern-day mixtape!

Digital Photo Frames

Probably the most affordable of the lot, digital photo frames are the present day answer to all your housewarming and family gifting woes. Gone are the days of preserving printed photographs, say hello to digitisation. Who said home gifting has to be boring and clichéd? Even the youngsters of the family will appreciate and treasure this gift, even if it’s only to show off their own pics and clicks.


It’d be unfair to leave behind the gaming hysteria that recent times have seen. Want to get high on action? There’s the latest Black Ops II! Want to get sporty and fit? There’s the PS3 console. Want to carry your gaming with you everywhere? There’s the PS Vita. No matter who you’d like to gift – there’s something for everyone. Believe it or not, we can promise you that even adults love their gaming time and zone almost as much as kids if not more.
