Holiday technology gifts for the whole family
Buying holiday gifts can be a fun and easy experience when you go to the right place. No matter the age of the person you're buying for, there is one kind of product that is perfect for everyone: technology. Whether it's the latest tablet or e-reader, new headphones, or a cool tech accessory for a stocking stuffer, there is something for everyone.
Digital lifestyle expert and TV personality, Mario Armstrong, suggests making the shopping experience easy by finding one place shoppers can turn to for all their technology gift shopping needs. “Staples is a great place for tech gifts,” says Armstrong. “They offer customers a great in-store experience where shoppers can test products to ensure they are getting the best gift. Also, if anyone is confused or needs a little guidance, the Staples EasyTech Associates can help customers decide, purchase and even set up the new technology gifts.”
Here are a few of Armstrong’s must-have gifts for this holiday season available at Staples:
Tablets and e-readers: Whether you’re simply looking for convenient reading on the go, or a do-it-all media device for the family, tablets continue to do more while costing you less. Products such as the Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD or Google Nexus offer the same reader-friendly experience along with Wi-Fi capabilities and 16 or 32 GB of storage, making it the perfect companion for storing and streaming music and movies, as well. If you appreciate the latest technology, consider trade-in programs that allow you to get value out of your old tablets and e-readers to upgrade to the newest model.
New Touch Screens: PC users can’t wait to get their hands on this newest operating system for laptops, ultrabooks and tablets. Windows 8 features a Start screen, live tiles that make it fun to navigate with touch or a mouse and keyboard, apps for work and play in the Windows Store and more. Customers purchasing a new PC that runs Windows 8 from Staples can receive free one-on-one training on how to use the new system and more.
Tech Accessories: With tablets, e-readers and mobile devices exploding in popularity, it should come as no surprise that accessories to improve the mobile computing experience are hot items this year. If you have someone on your list that won’t leave home without his tablet in hand, consider a tablet-friendly keyboard such or fashionable case. For the person who enjoys the ability to take movies and music everywhere, a pair of high-definition headphones is the perfect gift.
Shopping for technology during the holiday season doesn’t have to be time consuming, once you find the right place that has everything, you’ll be able to check off that list in no time.
