Last Minute Gift Ideas

Posted by: Sarah Graves - December 15, 2014

The clock is counting down and if you are still stuck for those last few gifts, here are some ideas for both kids and the grown-ups to complete your gift list. 

For the kids:

The popular LEGO Friends collection takes kids on an adventure into the jungle with the LEGO Friends Jungle Rescue Base.  This deluxe set includes living quarters, a boat, zip line, slide, 2 mini figures and 4 animals.  Girls will combine building, imagination, and storytelling adventures for hours of fun.   Co-ordinate your animal rescue missions, characters climb the watchtower and use the telescope to look for animals in danger.  It is also compatible with other sets from the jungle series. 

For younger kids, Vtech has Bronco the RC Triceratops, their first remote control dino, a new addition to their Switch & Go Turbo line.   It easily transforms from a fierce dinosaur to a sleek race car and back again with the push of a button!  Using the remote, you can move it and charge the turbo boost lever to give a burst of speed!  Learn cool dino facts and hear wild sound effects too.

Get your kids off the couch and active with the Moff Band, a smart wearable toy.  Powered by motion sensors and kids’ creativity, everyday objects can be made into a toy—the whisk is a magic wand, the broom is an air guitar, a wooden spoon becomes a knight's sword, and their imagination is the only thing a kid needs to play.  With regular free app updates, there are always new sounds and activities, so kids won’t get bored. Simple to set up and easy to play with, grab 2 bands and kids can play together for even more fun.

Kids love playing with tablets, and from the makers of Tiggly Shapes, check out Tiggly Counts.  It is the first hands-on math toy that interacts with your tablet to make learning math fun.  By physically moving the Tiggly Counts pieces, children can see, touch and connect with the math concepts.  It comes with three award winning apps that help teach counting, addition and number lines in a fun and engaging way. Perfect for children aged 3-8.

For grown-ups:

Smart phones always top the list and The Verizon LG G3 was rated the “perfect smartphone” by Forbes.   It has a 5.5-Inch Quad HD display (which means it is 4x the resolution of HD). It has a 13 megapixel camera with Laser Auto Focus. It comes with a rear key button with a slim bezel to make this phone ergonomic and lightweight.  Best part is the battery lasts all day.  

The question of the season is laptop or tablet?  The Lenovo YOGA 3 Pro is both but is as thin as a pencil and weighs less than a bottle of water. It’s got a new watchband hinge that lets you use it as a Laptop, in Stand mode, in Tent mode or as a Tablet.  With the Harmony software experience, it automatically adjusts settings like brightness, color, and sound to maximize whatever you’re doing in over 50 of your most popular applications. 

When you are totally at a loss of what to get?  Try food!  According to a recent study, nearly 86 percent of gift recipients would enjoy receiving a food gift.  The Tasteful Gift Package from Omaha Steaks features 2 Filet Mignons, 2 Top Sirloins and 4 All-American favorite Burgers, plus side dishes and a dessert for under $70.
