Ultimate Christmas Gift for Mom – Boots

This has NOTHING to do with tech really, but this year boots are everywhere and every mama needs a fancy pair of boots she feels hot in. You know what? I work for CountryOutfitter.com, which is the source of all the gorgeous boots in the country. I might be biased, but this is my blog.

Ultimate Christmas Gift for Dad – The new iMac

New iMac desktop

The new iMac desktop

Just a month ago I would’ve sworn the world was done with home desktop computers. Surely we are all going to have laptops. Why would you want a giant thing to find space for in your house? Well, then Apple announced their new iMacs and darned if they aren’t FAB-U-LOUS. Apple desktops haven’t had a tower in many years, but this one is basically just a super thin monitor. That’s it. No extra piece of anything. And it’s gorgeous, fast and a workhorse. You can either buy a new computer every two years, fight pop-ups, viruses, malware and slooooooow activity, or you can buy an iMac, do what you want to do fast and have one heck of a computer for several years.

An added bonus with the desktop is that kids can more easily share access. Park it at a desk space and let them take turns, as opposed to passing the laptop around.

Ultimate Christmas Gift for Kids – Nabi 2 Tablet

The Nabi 2 is a 7″ tablet made specifically for kids and includes a safety-gated operating system, durable design, tons and tons of preloaded games, over 25 pre-loaded books, a camera and intuitive kid-friendly interface. Bonus: with a password parents can unlock the full Android Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and use it like a regular tablet. There are lots of kid tablets on the market right now, but this one really seems to be the one to get.

Ultimate Christmas Gifts for Grandparents – iGrill

Charlie and Nana had fun playing with the iGrill while they were cooking the Thanksgiving turkey. It’s not always easy to buy gadgets for Baby Boomers, but we think this one is just plain fun. Especially when you program ridiculous songs to play when your food is done. Suggestion: Dixie Chicken. Good times, y’all.

Ultimate Christmas Gift for Friends – Cashmere tech gloves

Ultimate Christmas Gifts for Coworkers – Wacom Bamboo Stylus

This one is $30, so really only for the coworker(s) you like. The others get cookies or an ornament. The Bamboo stylus is a handy little tool for your tech-savvy coworkers who have tablets. Sometimes we just want to write, not type. Also, sometimes we just want to doodle to keep from stabbing people in meetings. Doodling = therapy. Therefore, the giver of the Bamboo stylus = office hero.
