This year, I decided to treat myself to a few unusual electronic gadgets. While they may be a touchy subject matter, I felt that this was a great way to get away from my normal boring life and try something new. Even the slightest of sounds that were once missed in the theater got to experience in home audio theatre. All the free time, get away from it all and just enjoy with my family.
I decided to buy a portable television as an RSR (ready to set up) gift. The company selling it is very cheap for such a huge item and is priced around 2600. I compared the cost of a ready-to-set-up LCD TV with the cost of an RSR and was surprised to find that the RSR was cheaper. The price of the electronic gadgets I bought was not much higher than the prices I paid for the RSR.
Unusual Electronic Gadgets: Digital Clock Radio
The first of the electronic gadgets that I bought was a small digital clock radio. It was given to me by my brother-in-law who works in a radio station. He had bought it online, and I still have it to this day. The radio has two tuning slots and a memory bank to keep hundreds of radio shows.
RC Remote Control Helicopter
My sister-in-law gave me another one of her electronic gadgets, this time an RC remote control helicopter. It was about the size of a large toy helicopter and had a very realistic blade. It was painted white with black lines on the blade edge. With the battery, I could easily fly the helicopter in the air, and she was amazed at how easy it was to control it.
I did some research online about RC flying toys and found that they were quite expensive. I was surprised at how reasonably priced they were. They are not suitable for children, but if you want a toy that is safe for them, you can buy one of them. My daughter especially liked the white one with the black lines.
Others Unusual Electronic Gadgets
I also received an audio book on tape with three CDs inside. The first one was about astronomy and the second one was a kids’ album. I really enjoyed listening to the audio book because it gave me a lot of information about the stars and the universe. It was full of facts and very interesting. There were a lot of space stories in there too.
I have given out a lot of gifts using these audio books. Some people have told me that they will get me something else once they get my present. It is really great to be able to know so much about such a broad subject just by listening to audio books. These are ideal gifts for children too because it is so easy to add to the books that you already own.
There are so many kinds of electronic gadgets available that you could never run out of them. You could even turn some of the gifts into educational toys. These are the perfect gifts to give to anyone this Christmas, and I hope that you get some excellent ones.
I am especially fond of toys that teach children languages. Some of them are so cute that I would put together a game to see how a child would learn French from it. Then there is the educational benefit of learning a second language, especially if your children do not speak English at home. It can open up a whole new world for them.
It is probably easier to find toys that teach languages because they are more likely to be popular. Children tend to like unusual electronic gadgets. I myself have a few of these. My niece absolutely adores them. I think she wants all of them!
Some of the other electronic gadgets that are ideal gifts for Christmas are digital camera covers, cell phone covers, and car remotes. You can also buy Christmas tree decorations that feature Santa. These are great gifts for boys and girls. They really like to have electronic gadgets as gifts.
