Gift Option #1
An affordable MP3 player can be ideal for those that need the additional music space while in the car or working out. Think about the commuter or runner in your life. A clippable MP3 can be the perfect gift for a friend or family member.
Gift Option #2
Consider a universal remote control like the Logitech Harmony 300. The remote is computer-programmable and can be purchased for about $30, or you can throw in an additional $30 to purchase a Harmony 650 model with a built-in screen – talk about fancy!
Gift Option #3
Here’s an option that’s not too flashy, but ideal for someone that appreciates a good router. The D-Link DIR-605 L Cloud Router is described as ‘one of the top routers’ because it delivers incredibly fast wireless and wi-fi speeds. It also comes with an app for Android and iOS, so that you can reboot your signal and control other router settings, all from your smartphone.
Gift Option #4
Think music, sound, simplicity and you have headphones. Everyone appreciates a good set of headphones. If you want to zone out and jam on, try the Audio Technica ATH-M30 headphones. For on-the-go headphones, check out Panasonic Ergo Fit. If you want to be trendy, try the Panasonic RP-HTX7 headphones. There are plenty of options, so make sure you keep the recipient’s lifestyle in mind.
