The Best 100 Christmas Gift Ideas

This is part of a series of hubs which feature the top 100 Christmas gift ideas. In this series you will find the perfect Christmas present for anyone whatever age, gender, their interests and your budget. The lists are in no particular order and I intend to put different types of things in each part - so don't be surprised to see the Amazon Kindle to a piece of jewellery to a bike! 

The presents on this list vary rapidly including ebook readers, soccer balls, table tennis tables, digital cameras, board games, MP3 players, DIY tools, picture frames, video games, music, musical instruments and so much more that you will find THE Christmas Gift for anyone!

Best Digital Photo Frames

Amazing digital photo frame that does everything perfectly. Displays your beautiful images in style, reads nearly any file type and plays audio/video and has a calendar and date function!

Does everything you could want and more!


Christmas Gift Idea 1 - Digital Photo Frames

Digital Photo Frames are a fantastic Christmas gift idea. If you have pictures of the lucky receiver (especially with you) you can load them on the photo frame and it will also be a personal gift too. Photography captures those special moments in our lives and there has never been a better way to share them!

These digital photo frames are amazing and provide a brilliant way to showcase photos and to share your favourite memories. Some digital photo frames do a lot more now apart from making your photos look wonderful like play audio and video as well, have calendar functions, are WiFi/bluetooth compatible and have built in card readers!

A digital photo frame is one of the best Christmas presents you can give to someone and the beauty of it is that you can personalise them with your photos making it a unique gift too!

The Kindle

The same but with Free 3G in over 100 countries worldwide!


Christmas Gift Idea 2 - New Amazon Kindle

The new third generation of Amazon's Kindle has just recently been released and simply put is awesome! Think of the ability to carry around 3500 books wherever you go without struggling to read like with most screens due to e-ink technology and with a battery life of one month!

There are over 630,000 ebooks for the Amazon Kindle on Amazon with many being completely free! The Kindle also features built in Wi-Fi and the 3G version connects to the internet in over 100 countries and there is no annual or monthly usage fee!

The Kindle is always improving and you can have your Kindle read to you, browse the web, have direct access to Wikipedia, play MP3's as background music as you read, change the font and font size, no need for bookmarks again, read across devices like the Kindle, Ipod touch, Ipad, Blackberry, PC, Mac and Android device and comes with a built in dictionary and more!

The Amazon Kindle is the number 1 most gifted, most wished for and has been the best selling product on for two consecutive years!

There is tonnes of awesome information about the Kindle if you check the link on the right - videos, comparisons between the new and old Kindle, the technical features, new features and so much - just check it out!

Remember the Kindle is only available at Amazon!

Christmas Gift Idea 3 - Bicycle

A bicycle is a great gift for nearly anyone (although you may not want to get your gran one!) There are many benefits of cycling including it helps keep you fit, is healthier and will save you money on petrol - plus it helps the environment!

There are many brilliant bicycles out there and I will leave it to you to find the right one but remember a bike is a great gift!

Popular Board Games

Christmas Gift Idea 4 - Board Games

Yes board games can be a good Christmas present especially for families.  There is an incredible amount of board games available and although there are the old classics like Monopoly, Cluedo, Chess there are other exciting board games out there if you look.

Some excellent board games I can think of are Rummikub, Scrabble, Twister and one I just found on Amazon which is rated exceptionally good is called Bananagrams!

Christmas Gift Idea 5 - Dumbbells

If you are looking for a gift for a young male adult dumbbells could be the Christmas present you want. 

They will help the receiver become stronger, have bigger muscles and look better!  Great for anyone who is trying to get stronger and good for anyone! 

Christmas Gift Idea 6 - Sat Navs/GPS

Sat navs/GPS systems are wonderful devices which will help save you time and worry about how you are going to get someone in your car.  These little devices nearly always save the day and while they do sometimes go a little weird they always get you to your destination. 

The other great thing is that the routes change depending on you and many of these systems work abroad too!  I have found my TomTom incredibly useful at times!

Sat Navs are always excellent presents for anyone who drives.

Christmas Gift Idea 7 - Lego

Lego is amazing and has been around for so many years and children all over the world have enjoyed using it!

The range of Lego products is amazing from Harry Potter, standard bricks, Batman and even Spongebob which I thought was really cute. You can even buy sets to make the Taj Mahal with!

There are now even Lego games and so much more.

Why not check out the Lego Store to see the latest Lego innovations?

Christmas Gift Idea 8 - Electric Guitar

Electric guitars are amazing Christmas gift and one of the best gift ideas on this list. Music is a fantastic gift and in my opinion the guitar is by far the best instrument as you can do so much with it!

Electric guitars are also seen as cool and by getting one you are teaching the recipient a valuable skill they will have for life. However acoustic guitars are also brilliant and most guitarists have both types!

Honestly there are not many presents better than an electric guitar!

Christmas Gift Idea 9 - 3D TV's

3D TV is one of the coolest new things to come around but beware they are quite expensive but not quite as bad as I was expecting.

Many of these TV's have fantastic other features like Web TV and are also obviously great TV's when not in 3D with amazingly clear pictures!

I have previously wrote an article about the best 3D TV's and you may like to check that out.

Christmas Gift Idea 10 - Perfume

Yes, it is a little predictable but most women love perfume and other cosmetics!

There are many perfumes out there and I would especially recommend you be careful if you buy perfume online. I would either buy it direct from Amazon or pay a little more and get some from a shop!

Remember there are male perfumes too!
