Top Gadget Presents For Christmas 2011

2011 was a great year for gadgets. If you are looking for the perfect gadget gift, it certainly will not be hard to find this Christmas. If you are looking for a gift for someone who already has all of the latest gadgets, look into giving them the best accessories they can use with their gadgets.

If you are looking for a great gift for the tech-friendly person in your family or group of friends, consider a tablet. The tablet has easily taken the prize as the hottest gadget of 2011.

From the new Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy 10.1, to the Apple iPad2, there are plenty to choose from. The 8 GB Kindle Fire is a bargain pick offered at only $199 compared to the $499 price tags for both the 16GB Samsung and the 16 GB iPad2. While the Kindle Fire is cheaper in price, it only has half of the amount of storage space that the Samsung and iPad tablets offer. If they already have a tablet, consider purchasing an accessory to go along with it. From cases, screen shields, or Bluetooth keyboards, there are plenty of options to consider that they are sure to love and use.

For kids, the gadget that many retailers cannot keep on the shelves is the LeapFrog LeapPad Explorer learning tablet. This gift is perfect for children from 4-8 years of age. This kid-friendly tablet offers a 5″ touch screen, built in camera, and video recorder. It is a great educational gift that offers many books, games, and applications that automatically adjust to the educational level of the child. Pricing for this device is around $99, but it might be hard to find.

Look no further than the new Beats by Dr. Dre headphones for the perfect gift to give to a music lover. These headphones are now offered in a variety of colours to match the listeners personality. They come equipped with powered noise cancellation and a digital amplifier, making it sound like the listener is in the studio with their favourite artist. The only downfall to these headphones would be the price, starting out around $300. If $300 is too much to spend, the iPod Shuffle should do the trick for right around $50. The Shuffle is an extremely compact music player. Songs can be downloaded right onto the device from the Apple iTunes Store.
