Tech gift the whole family can enjoy

On December 10, 2011

  • The size and portability of tablets and e-readers over laptops will make these two the most wanted tech toys this holiday. ARA

(ARA) - Buying holiday gifts can be a fun and easy experience when you go to the right place, and there is a certain joy that you get when you see someone opening a gift they've been waiting for all year. 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 new headphones, a USB flash drive for a stocking stuffer, or an e-reader, 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 that," says Armstrong "they offer customers a great in store experience where shoppers can test products to ensure they are getting the best one for them. Also, if anyone is confused or needs a little guidance, their EasyTech Associates can help them decide, purchase and even help set up their new technology gifts." Here are some of Mario's must-have picks for this holiday season available at Staples:

Tablets and e-readers

Smaller and more portable than a laptop, the tablet has become the ultimate tool for anyone who wants the functionality of a computer on the go. It can serve any purpose, whether you need an easy alternative for a business presentation, a great tool to play games or a movie-player to keep your kids busy when you're traveling. Depending on what feature you're looking for there is a wide range of models and accessories to meet almost any price point. With another great portable device that is all the rage this year, e-readers, paper books are a thing of the past. Now, the best way to get into your favorite book is to download it, the new Kindle Fire has a seven inch color touch screen that can download countless books in addition to movies and TV shows!

Stocking stuffers

There are some fun tech items at Staples that make great stocking stuffers. These days everyone has multiple flash drives in their life, but they don't need to be those basic, boring black cubes. Now, drives come in fun shapes, colors and themes such as animals and even Looney Tunes characters.

Holiday shopping doesn't have to be time consuming, once you find the right place that has everything, you get the gifts that will make everyone in your family smile this holiday.
