Tbreak’s 2011 Holiday Gift Guide

Gifts from AED 50 to 10k, we have it all covered.

The holiday gift giving season is usually a mad rush of people trying to figure out at the last minute what to buy their loved ones. It could be something small, or something extravagant, but whatever the cost, a gift should show always be something considerate.

In this gift guide I’ll be covering a wide range of prices, each of which is provided by different types of people. And by that, I mean that not everyone can afford to give an expensive camera, nor can just one person give a gift. Maybe family members or friends want to chip in and give something big.

As such, I have created 4 categories for each price range, where giving that gift will be financially viable. So here they are:

Friends: Price range AED 50 to 1,000. From school kids to working adults, everyone has a price range where they can give gifts to their pals, something special for this holiday season.

Couples: Price range AED 200 to 5,000. I’m assuming here that even if one partner is working, the other will have enough savings to buy a small gift. In any case, it’s the thought that counts.

Family: Price range AED 1,000 to 10,000. Here I’ll be looking at gifts that can be gifted by just the parents, or even combined with older siblings who’re working. The idea is the gift can be used by the rest of the family members as well.

With that sorted out, I’d just like to mention that I have chosen gifts that can be used by both our male and female readers, hopefully catering to the interests of both audiences. And despite being a technology centric site, not all the gifts are techy gadgets.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    Not exactly a lot of cheat/affordable choices, but some good suggestions.

    LOL the holiday season is all about spending time with friends and family. The capitalist’s holiday season is about making money out of you forking out your hard earned dough for stuff.  I think there are a lot of decent things to be bought at the under 500 level, no point in buying someone a PS3 without games for example :P
