Instead of giving money to children this year for Christmas, rethink your gifts to children and consider one of these fine electronic gifts that will have them saying that all-to-technical phrase...cool! Some of the top choices for this year are:
A Flat Screen TV
Flat screen TV's are all the rage these days and come in all sizes. Flat screen TV's come in LED, Plasma, or LCD models, depending on your preferences. Whether you want a 19" or a 60" screen that covers your wall, you can get one that will have your child smiling from ear to ear.
A New Cell Phone
Like most teenagers these days, it's likely they have a cell phone and it's usually attached to their ear or they're texting at 100 words a minute. If not, this is a great time to bring them up to speed with modern technology. Although you may have to have them show you how they work, once they learn texting, you'll be surprised how quite the house gets!
Maybe your child is a country or rock and roll music buff. They may like Sugarland, Hanna Montana, or Metallica. But whatever their preference in music, he can enjoy the music whether he's fishing on the lake or mowing the grass at home.
We all know our teenage drivers are not like dogs. Sometimes they just can't find their way home or at least home on time. If you've ever gotten lost on a trip or vacation, you'll soon see how valuable these devices really are. To take the guesswork out of how to get there, and better yet, to stop all of those agonizing stops at gas stations for directions, buy your child a GPS unit to show him the way. With this handy gadget, you just tell it where you are and where you want to end up and it guides you the rest of the way!
iPoD VideoAn iPoD is a great gift for children who not only like songs, but also would like to be able to watch a video, or look through pictures in the middle of nowhere. Depending on the model and storage capacity, these units become like a boom box and TV all in one!
For those lead footed children who aren't happy unless they are breaking the sound barrier while driving, a welcomed gift might be a radar detector. At least they'll be forewarned before getting a speeding ticket!
Home Theater System
Oh man! Your children will be jumping for joy when they connect the home theater package to their new flat screen TV! The sights...the sounds of true TV viewing at its best! You may end up getting invited into their room for movie night!
