Best Christmas Gifts & Xmas Gifts Ideas 2012

Updated on November 16, 2012

Festive Season Of Christmas

After a wait of almost a year the most celebrated festivals in the world is round the corner and everyone is eagerly waiting for the day when they’ll celebrate it. No guesses friends. Here’s I’m talking about Christmas. Christmas brings with it a lot of joy and happiness in people’s life. Everyone likes to double their happiness by spending their time with their family & friends and by gifting something special to them. We all know how difficult sometimes it becomes when it comes to selecting the gifts for your loved ones. Many questions go through our mind. “Whether they we’ll like the gift or not? Or What if they already have it? Blah Blah Blah. To lessen some of your burden of selecting the right gift , I’ve come-up with following ideas which I believe will be liked by you.


1) Movie or Music CD/DVD

  You can gift a music CD of favorite music artist of your loved ones to them. Collector’s edition of their favorite movie or music DVD would be like icing on the cake. Music CDs and DVDs are the ideal gift for anyone of any age and gender as these forms of entertainments are liked by all. Animation movies DVDs can be presented to kids whereas some oldies music songs can be gifted to elderly people.

2) Video Game Consoles- In this new era of technology game consoles are one of the best way to unwind yourself and to kill your time. Game consoles are widely popular among kids and teenagers. There are various types of consoles available in the market from PS3 to Microsoft Xbox 360 and from portable consoles like PSP to GAMEBOY.

You can also go for games CDs. Some of the popular and latest games available on different platforms are as follows.

Microsoft Xbox 360

Halo Reach

Fable III

Madden NFL 11

Mass Effect 2

Medal of Honour Limited Edition

Sony Playstation 3

NBA 2K11

Call of Duty: Black Ops

Red Dead Redemption

Final Fantasy XIII

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots

Nintendo Wii

New Super Mario Bros


Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga

Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Guitar

Michael Jackson The Experience


3) Digital Camera – In festive seasons everyone likes to capture their precious moments for a lifetime. Nothing is better than digital camera to perform this task. With the advent of modern technology in photography cost of these products have come down. Now a simple point to shoot camera can be purchased for a sum as low as $70. The beautiful moments which it will capture will be priceless and will be cherished by your family for a lifetime.


4) Gift coupon- Gift coupons or vouchers are best options available when you are uncertain whether your gift will be liked by the recipient. You can gift your family and friends gift certificate of their favorite restaurant/pub, game arcade, and departmental store etc.

5) Tour Packages- No gift can replace the spending quality time with their family during Christmas. There are many tour operators who offer tour packages to different parts of the world and within one’s own country. Celebrating Christmas with family and friends in some exotic places will be altogether a different and exhilarating experience.

6 ) Gadgets or computer electronics- For tech savvy people any type of computer electronic items like laptop/notebook or mobile handsets or accessories will be an ideal gift.
