Finding the perfect Christmas gifts for your friends and family is a real challenge. And as you struggle to find things they might like, don't forget they're trying to do the same for you. So when you open those socks or the fondue pot they already got you last year, just smile politely and remember to hold onto that gift receipt.
Odds are you won't be able to return those items for cash, but if you find yourself with a handful of gift cards after a few exchanges, here are some suitable alternatives that should've been under the tree in the first place.
You always need one. They are always cheap. Don't be fooled into buying the expensive ones.
Use it in your phone, use it in your camera, use it in your tablet — just use it.
If you want to use the most advanced features ever beamed into a game console — hand gestures, voice commands — you're going to need a Kinect, easily the most enjoyable and impressive gaming peripheral ever devised. Just make sure your living room is big enough.
