Here are some great gadgets that look great on you and greatest when you gift them.

There are plenty of options including smartphones and tablets. We’ve done most of the hard work for you: all you need do is choose the wrapping paper. Check the below options to know what these gifts are:

    iPad mini iPad mini: Apple’s new iPad delivers all the same features as its bigger sister, just in a smaller, more portable package. Great for frequent travelers, the iPad mini measures 7.87in (full-sized iPads measure 9.5in) and is just 0.3 kg. Its smaller frame lets the iPad mini easily slide into purses or briefcases, and users can hold the tablet with just one hand. The only drawback is that the display is a bit of downgrade compared to bigger iPads, but other specs, such as battery life and cameras, are identical. The cheapest iPad mini is $509.

    Kindle Fire HD

    Kindle Fire HD: Amazon’s 7in Kindle Fire HD touts specs that give Apple’s iPad mini a run for its money and costing nearly $US130 less. The Kindle Fire HD comes equipped with a 1280×800 HD display, dual-driver stereo speakers and dual-antenna wi-fi that, according to Amazon, lets it download content 40 percent faster than the third-generation iPad. The 7in Kindle Fire HD comes in a 16GB model for $US199 and a 32GB model for $US249 – it’s not available in Australia, but can be bought on Amazon’s US online store.

    iPhone 5

    iPhone 5: For those who didn’t join the rush to buy the iPhone 5 the minute it came out, Apple’s latest smartphone would make a great gift. Faster, thinner and lighter than previous iPhone models, the iPhone 5 created a frenzy when it was launched in September, and Apple sold more than 5 million within the first three days of availability. So what’s all the fuss about? Apart from its more powerful processor and thinner form factor, Apple’s latest smartphone also runs iOS 6, Apple’s latest mobile software, and includes the same top-notch retina display that debuted with the third-generation iPad. Now that the rush is over, you can get an iPhone 5 at Apple and resellers for $799, and telcos on a variety of plans.

    Galaxy Note II

    Samsung Galaxy Note II: Can’t decide whether to surprise your loved ones this year with a tablet or a smartphone? Give them both with the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Its half-smartphone, half-tablet design makes the Samsung Galaxy Note II stand out from the slew of other mobile devices on the market today. The gadget comes with Google’s latest mobile OS – Android 4.1 Jelly Bean – along with 4G support and a 5.5in HD display. Samsung also offers its S Pen stylus along with the Note. It is selling now for $899, and on plans from Optus, Vodafone and Virgin.

    Nexus 10

    Google Nexus 10: Apple’s iPad may rule the tablet market, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any worthy competitors out there. Google’s Nexus 10, a 10in, Android-based tablet, is one of them – and it sells for almost $100 less than the fourth-generation iPad, letting you save a few bucks at Christmas. And don’t worry – its modest price tag doesn’t mean sub-par specs. The display on the Nexus 10 actually has more pixels than the fourth-generation iPad’s retina display, plus it runs a powerful ARM Cortex 15 dual-core processor. Google offers a 16GB model of the Nexus 10 for $469 and a 32GB version for $569. Apple’s comparable iPad starts from $539.

    Microsoft Surface

    Microsoft Surface: Microsoft Surface is the perfect gift this year for those curious to test run the software giant’s first go at a tablet. Running Windows RT, the ARM-specific flavour of Windows 8, Surface is a 10in tablet that comes with an integrated kickstand, allowing users to prop it up to watch movies or browse the web hands-free. It starts at $559 and can be bundled with Microsoft’s Touch Cover keyboard for an additional $130 to offer a more laptop-like experience. Another version of Surface, running Windows 8 Pro, is slated to launch in January.

Christmas gifts in the market today are of multifarious varieties, so it becomes more and more difficult for you to select well-content presents from the sea of Christmas gifts. And I have prepared some Christmas gifts for you to choose. I am sure you can single out some gifts that suit your taste.

    The Practical Type: For People Who Are Close to You
    Scarves, gloves and hats which can convey warmness directly to the heart of the receiver in chilly winter are the most practical traditional Christmas gifts. For women, you’d better send them cosmetics or perfumes because women often focus on beauty. And as to men, you’d better present them with high-class watches or slap-up leather bags because men usually concentrate on quality.
    Strategy One: Scarf + Glove + Hat
    Strategy Two: Cosmetic + Perfume
    Strategy Three: Watch + Leather Bag

    The Creative Type: For People Who Jump on the Bandwagon
    The most precious gift does not depend on the expensive price but on the ingenious idea. A Christmas gift that is able to let the receiver feel your attentiveness and sincerity can be said the greatest gift. Mug with your image printed on can let the receiver remind of you when drinking water. Sending your Christmas DIY chocolate is just like sending out your deep affection. Furthermore, planning a trip on Christmas vacation for your beloved ones is also a good choice.
    Strategy One: Mug + Your Image
    Strategy Two: DIY Christmas Chocolate
    Strategy Three: A Fascinating Trip

    The Romantic Type: For People Who Are Dreamers
    The glittering and translucent crystal can be remarked as the best gift for boys to send to their girlfriends and it witnesses love between them. Dessert is an indispensable part of Christmas, making ginger bread house for your family members is a rather wonderful idea. If you want to express your love to someone then a romantic candlelight dinner with fragrant flowers and red wine will be your preference.
    Strategy One: Crystal Ornament
    Strategy Two: DIY Ginger Bread
    Strategy Three: A Romantic Candlelight Dinner

    The Fashion Type: For People Who Enjoy Digital Life
    Digital products are the most favored Christmas gifts nowadays. A digital photo album that can store lots of beautiful Christmas photos can be used to send to family members and intimate friends. iPod has been very popular among stylish people so you can choose it as a gift. And iPod Converter Suite (50% off on Christmas Special Offer) which can convert all videos to iPod compatible format is iPod’s excellent partner. For people who are fond of playing games, the new PSP Go must be their favorite.

Here I’d like to share some most romantic and popular things that could make this festival more attractive and memorable with all lovers.

    Absolutely, it would be much more romantic to go out for a movie in a cinema than watching TV or movies at home. There are so many excellent Christmas romance movies to produce a romantic 2-hour film enjoying, just like It’ A Wonderful Life, The Holiday, The Family Stone, Love Actually, etc.

    DIY a candlelit Christmas dinner

    No doubt that there would be a big Christmas feast at Christmas for family gathering. But if some romance required, a DIY candlelit dinner would deservedly be a good choice. Taste delicious food made by yourself with your tasty girl (or hot guy), what else would be more romantic?

    DIY Lovely Christmas gifts

    Christmas decoration

    Decorating house and Christmas tree with your loved one would even be the best DIY way to produce a romantic Christmas atmosphere. If combined with a candlelit Christmas dinner in the house you decorated together, what wonderful Christmas romance it would be.

    Make a memorable romantic Christmas video

    Well, all the DIYs above could only make your romantic Christmas commemorative inside your heads and could not share with others after Christmas is over. This DIY Christmas celebration way would let you own a fairly good opportunity to share your happy romance or show off to your friends or online. Record every clip of your romantic Christmas and then create your own Christmas video. This would be an even more enjoyable DIY Christmas work. A PowerPoint to Video Converter would help you create a Christmas video if you have shot Christmas photos. If you record a Christmas video, then you may need a Video Converter before uploading to YouTube for sharing.
