1. Kindle Wireless Reading Device

Amazon kindle has made buying and reading books very easy. It really does have the paper like display and it is very light weight. There are more than 350,000 books available for you through kindle network. You can carry 1,500 books in kindle.

If you have kids, Flip is a must. It start in 2 seconds. You’ll never miss any precious moments of your kids, if you carry this around. This captures 120 minutes of HD video on 8 GB of built-in memory. Don’t buy flip without the flip tripod.

3. Apple iPod nano

Odds are that you already own this. If not, get this new 5th generation model before your grandma thinks that you are not cool. Apart from 8 GB to hold songs, photos and videos, this ipod also has 2.2-inch color TFT display with 240 x 376 pixel resolution.

4. Sony Digital Photo Frame

Instead of having multiple family photos on your desk, just keep this Sony DPF-D70 digital photo frame, which has 256MB of internal memory and 800×480 resolution 7-inch LCD screen. You can also insert all types of external media cards directly in this photo frame.

5. Canon 15.1 MP (Digital SLR Camera)

Canon EOS Rebel T1i 15.1 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera provides the best value for the money. This camera comes with the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens. 3.0-inch Clear View LCD. Full HD video capture at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

6. Canon PowerShot 12.1 MP (Point and Shoot Camera)

While there are several digital point and shoot cameras available, Canon PowerShot SD780IS 12.1 MP is probably the best under $200 range. 3x optical zoom with image stabilizer. 2.5-inch widescreen. HD movie shooting capability.

Garmin nüvi 260W 4.3-Inch Widescreen Portable GPS Navigator has 4.3-inch touchscreen display with 2D/3D mapping perspective along with Turn-by-turn directions with voice guidance and text to speech. Other than all the typical GPS function, this also includes JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock with time zones, currency converter, measurement converter, calculator and more

8. Logitech Harmony One Advanced Universal Remote

I used to juggle 4 different remotes while watching TV. This remote control has changed all the headaches of keeping track of multiple remotes. This is worth every penny. Once you use it, you’ll not watch TV without it again.

There are two models in PS3 – 120GB and 250GB. This model is 33% slimmer, 36% lighter than the previous PS3 models. Includes a Dualshock 3 wireless controller and a built-in 120GB HDD (or 250GB) for storing games, music, videos, and photos. Includes blu-ray player.
