High-Tech Gift Ideas

Updated on April 9, 2011

Fun Affordable Electronic Gifts!

This is the twenty-first century and there are really fun high-tech holiday or birthday gifts out there! Here are some fun and affordable ideas:

GelaSkins - Removable Art Prints Skin Your Mac or Laptop PC

The artwork ranges from Anime to Van Gogh. I thought the Gustaff Klimt "The Kiss" would make a very romantic gift. There is one that looks like the skin of a golf ball and some psychedelic 60's designs as well. Price: $29.95

MASSAGING SLIPPERS To keep your man comfy and in a romantic mood, give him a foot massage - the easy way. Buy him a pair of foot massage slippers. Integrated massage rollers are activated by 2 AAA batteries. The plush interior keeps feet warm and the suede like' exterior and rubber soles are great for indoor or outdoor wear. Men's sizes 8-11 ' Price: $29.95

Hammacher Schlemmer 28-Hour MP3 Player

This player is small enough to wear like a necklace and you can purchase them in fun colors. I like the silver one the best, but of course that's up to you. It comes with a the necklace. Provides 28 hours of tunes per charge. It "Comes with full 256 MB memory, built-in five mode equalizer, two decorative covers (pink and gray; standard cover is white), ear buds, USB cable for music file transfer (the player can also hold other digital files), and built-in rechargeable battery that charges from your computer." 1 1/2" H x 2 1/2" W x 1/4" D. (1/2 oz.)" Price: $99.99

PEACEFUL ALARM CLOCK Alarm clocks may not sound romantic, but the "Peaceful Progression Wake Up Clock" takes alarm clocks to a higher level. The design is very modern, sort of like 50's meets R2D2. Black with translucent sections for the gradual light effects. It awakens you with a thirty-minute progression of ambient light growing brighter, soft sounds that you choose, (nature or music) and an aroma therapy feature as well. I don't know about you, but it sounds better than the buzz-saw heart-stopper I have.

The sounds include: Nightfall, Thunder Storm, Zen Melody, Mountain Stream, Songbirds, and Ocean Surf.

Fragrances: Energy, Morning Caf, Stress Relief, Lavender It also comes with an aroma therapy bowl so you can add your own choice of aroma beads.

The clock offers classic readout numbers, volume control and head phone jack. It plugs into a standard household outlet and also uses 2 AA batteries. Price: $49.95 Aroma Refills: $9.95.

MEMORY HEART PENDANT One of my favorite items is a Discovery Memory Keeper Digital Photo Pendant. It is heart shaped and holds up to 40 photos. The editing software CD is included which allows you to add graphics and text to your photos. The screen is 1"x1" with two display modes, you choose either a single photo or a slideshow. The Pendant is made of plastic and hangs from a ribbon necklace. It reverses to a heart-shaped mirror. Internal rechargeable battery USB cable is also included. It's available on the Discovery Channel Site for $29.95. Recommended for Children over 8 years old.

ROLL UP KEYBOARD For the young (or old?) musician on your list, how about a roll up keyboard that fits in a pouch the size of a purse? The electronic piano has 49 soft rubber keys that cover a four-octave range. They are attached to a flexible neoprene pad (the same material used in wetsuits) that rolls into a compact cylinder for convenient portability The control panel is programmed with 100 different tones and 100 different rhythms, for a variety of musical instrument sounds and tempos, and the keyboard can be used to record and playback your performances

A demonstration program of 10 songs plays at the touch of a single button. Runs on four AA batteries (included). Includes travel pouch. Ages 8 and up. Unrolled: 33" W x 7 1/2" L x 1 1/2" D. (2 lbs.) Price: $79.95

These items will make happy holiday shopping and sharing affordable ,and happy recipients too!
