Christmas is around the corner, and people are turning to the internet more than ever before. I’m a big fan of Amazon … are here are some gift ideas from the big A.
|If you’re in the market for a 100+ inch TV and have $40,000 burning a hole in your pocket, you can snap up this Panasonic 103 inch model.If you’re a bit more budget conscious, you can get the 85 inch model for under $20,000.|
|The Kindle Fire is Amazon’s entry into the tablet market. It’s better than a standard eReader, but not quite as good as an iPad. But if you’re new to the tablet game, it’s a relatively inexpensive ($199) set of training wheels. For a rundown of all the current Kindle models, read my review.|
|The world is slowly shifting from DVD to Blu-Ray. We’re still a DVD family, but there are rumblings of getting a Blu-Ray player lately. If you get a WiFi-enabled player, you can stream NetFlix to the players. Don’t forget HDMI cables.|
|I like Stephen King’s writing, but am not a huge fan of his genre – so when he steps outside the box a bit. In 11/22/63, his characters go through a portal and arrive before JFK’s assassination. Interesting.|
|Baseball’s just around the corner – time to snap up a jersey of your favorite player.|
|I’ve seen these in stores, and it seems like a pretty slick idea. 3 slow cooker (crock pots) in one base. Three separate controls, but just one power cord. Here’s another variation on the theme.|
|Not enough room at the kitchen table for all the guests? Maybe a card table is the answer. Need more space? This table will seat 8.|
|Looking for a new game to play? Try Phase 10. The rules are easy enough for kids to understand, but the strategies of other players can make it difficult to win.|
|My kids love this game. The youngest (not quite two) just likes to play with the fish.|
|Don’t forget the dog. I know nothing about dog toys, but a friend tells me that Kong toys are the most durable dog toys he has seen.|
|If I have to explain why you’d want to buy a coffee mug shaped like a toilet, then you’re not the type of person that would buy it anyway.|
|If you’re not sure what to buy, you can opt for an Amazon gift card.|
OK, that’s my motley selection of Christmas ideas from Amazon. Are there any cool items you would recommend?
