Great Holiday Gift Ideas
It’s almost that time of the year. Food, family and friends. And if you’re a mother, it’s all about the children. Children are thrown into all the craziness over the latest toys and games, so they know exactly what they want. But them knowing what they want, no matter how well you know your son or daughter, doesn’t necessarily make things easier. How would you know if the toy robot is a better buy than a Nintendo game? With four kids, I’ve been through this. Which is why I’ve created a top four of the best tech kids presents.
A great gift for a young child is the Ubooly “teddy bear”. Ubooly is a stuffed animal that connects with your iPhone, iPad or Android device. Via the free app it will answer questions, read stories, chat to your child and suggest creative ways to play a game.
2. Portable speakers
If you’re a teenager there is nothing better than playing music on your phone. The louder the better. Therefore, a portable speaker can also be a great gift. They can listen to music everywhere they want with friends, such as on the beach or in the park. Just to be sure, I’d choose a speaker, which is waterproof and sturdy!
3. Smartphone projector
When your kids have no television in their rooms, this can be very handy for them. All you need is a blank wall and a phone (and maybe a Netflix account). The smartphone projector makes the small screen of their phone come alive on the wall. The room will turn into a mini movie theater.
4. Android tablet games
If your kids love to play games, they will expect one of the latest games during the Holidays. And who blames them? Video games for the Xbox, Playstation or other consoles don’t come cheap. Luckily, kids also like to play games on their mobile phone or tablet. There are a lot of games available for a reasonable price, such as Football Manager and Minecraft. Why not surprise your son or daughter with a Play Gift Card? This allows them to purchase a game in the Google Play Store. You can order one of these gift cards at Playgiftcard.com (even last-minute!)
