Holiday Gift Guide

Gaming:

PS3 Move Bundle – Under $300.00

Xbox360 kinect bundle –¬† $339.00

I had the XBox360 for quite some time, however, there were a few things I was missing from the repertoire. Namely, another system. Having procured both major systems ensures that I will have access to the top games for both platforms at my whim. I can also choose which online community I want to interact with. If the person your thinking of purchasing for has one system and loves it chances are they will enjoy another game system as well unless they are just rabid fan-boys of a particular platform. That said, getting a bundle will provide the most “bang” for your buck. You can get a game as well as the cool features that come along with the motion controllers for the PS3 or the XBox360. They also don’t have to go out and purchase those items later. You would do well to note that both platforms support apps like Netflix and music/movie downloads however Xbox Live costs about $60.00 per year while the Playstation Network is free.

Gadgets:

iPad2 – from 499.00

Kindle Fire: 199.99

Asus Transformer Prime:  from 499.00

You can read our brief write-up on these tablets here. The iPad 2 is the most prestigious of the bunch and comes with the most apps tailored for the tablet experience. However, if the iPad doesn’t quite satisfy the palet, you can choose from other tablets most of which run some derivative of Android’s operating system. The Kindle Fire has a completely tricked-out user interface and is centered around its Amazon store. You can purchase reading material¬† and store your purchases in the cloud. The Asus Transformer Prime will be the first Quad Core Tegra 3 device. It will also be upgraded to Google’s latest flavored OS called Ice-Cream Sandwhich.

Tools:

Ryobi 18 Volt Tool Combo Kit, 5-Piece- $119.00

You can find the deal here. It’s a great starter kit that has pretty much everything that the wannabe do-it-your-self guy in your life will need. It’s got 5 pieces including a saw, drill, and sander.

Grooming:

Philips Norelco SensoTouch 3D – $199-299

Art of Shaving – $20.00+

I’ve actually got a SensoTouch 3D myself and I will definitely recommend this product. It’s also a little gentler than a razor in that it doesn’t irritate the skin as much if your skin is sensitive. They are also waterproof so you can rinse them or use them in the shower. If you want to get fancy, one of those bad-boys has a touch screen. If your looking for something a little more old-school you can find what your looking for at The Art of Shaving. They have creams and oils and razors of all sorts.

Ladies, hope this will give you some ideas on what to get that special guy in your life. Happy shopping!
