Fun Christmas gifts we love are those that are creative and enjoyable long after Christmas is over. While some might love certain gifts more than others, people with all types of interests will gain appreciation from the Christmas gifts listed below. Use this as a go-to list if you don't know what to get someone this year, and they won't be disappointed.
Tickle me Elmo was a hit years ago and the Let's Rock Elmo is the next technological inception of this popular product from Hasbro. Elmo has a microphone and drums kit with him and, when prompted, launches into his own high pitched renditions of "It Takes Two" and "What I Like About You." This is cute enough to keep kids entertained for most of the holiday season and outrageous enough to keep adults amused over the course of one night, especially if they have sipped enough of the egg nog.
While the newest iPads won't be coming out for a few months after the holidays, the current iPad is one of the best devices out there, a perfect in-between when you don't want to use your phone or your laptop. You can watch movies on it, play video games, surf the internet and most importantly read books and magazines, which is what the iPad has truly revolutionized. However, the iPad and ongoing data plan will be relatively expensive, topping off at around one thousand dollars, so only be prepared to get this for someone you really care about.
The top gaming consoles of today are more like home entertainment centers in a tiny, high-tech box. PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 offer the best video games, of course, but they also offer a network of possibilities, allowing you to buy movies, TV shows and browse certain websites. They also have their own social networks and PlayStation has a Blu-Ray player to boot. The Nintendo Wii is ideal for kids and families, allowing them to play active games in front of the TV together, rather than staring blankly at a TV while clicking controllers. All of these top consoles also have access to Netflix streaming, which allows you to rent Netflix movies directly through them, rather than waiting for DVDs in the mail.
Give a really warm Christmas sweater, preferably one they can wear throughout the colder months of the year and not feel embarrassed about due to the ridiculous pattern on the front. Make sure it is well made from a material like wool or cashmere. This is a great way to have them always think about you when they put the sweater on or when someone comments on how much they like it.
Remote control helicopters are becoming more and more popular these days, as they have been made more durable, can be controlled off a cellular phone and have cameras on them, allowing you to get their POV when they fly. This is a great gift that is fun for kids and adults alike to fly around the yard during the colder winter months.
