Christmas Must Haves - Tools for Bloggers, Gift Ideas and a SneakyWishList

Hello Everyone! So Christmas is nearly here and if any of you have any last minute presents to get for friends or family who are fans of technology this is the post for you. I have split the post into three areas and created a gift ideas collage for each including an assortment of products available at Curry's PC World.  The first includes tools for bloggers, the second are general gift ideas and lastly a sneaky wish list at the end.. I couldn't resist! All are must have products to me :) 

Tools for Bloggers - Gift Ideas

Curry's PC World

Acer Aspire Laptop - £299.99
The most important tool in any bloggers kit is a laptop or PC.  This is an essential for loading up photo's, writing and editing posts as well as keeping up with social media.  Unfortunately mine has been playing up for around a year now and it's got to the point where blogging takes about 2-3 times longer than it used to which is not helpful! 

Being a beauty or fashion blogger means taking lots of photo's so it is a really important piece of kit that gets regularly used.  There are a huge amount of camera's available on the market so there is definitely one to suit everyone whether it be the popular Cannon 600D which is pictured here or a smaller compact camera.

A less fun but all the same essential product for a blogger is a memory card for your camera! Without this you wouldn't be able to store any of the photo's of gorgeous products to share with your readers so this is definitely a must have!

General Christmas Gift Ideas

Curry's PC World

I've had my eye on a blue ray player for a while because the quality for watching films is meant to be better than DVDs, however, I have always been put off by the thought of not being able to watch my collection of DVDs unless I re-purchased them.  Thankfully you can get the best of both world's with this product though, so it isn't a problem!

It's always handy to have a good pair of speakers around, especially at this time of year because it is the party season after all! This is a must for music lovers and people who like to party!

Apple Ipad Mini - £219.00
When tablets first became popular I didn't feel the need to have one as I didn't think it would be very different from using a PC but how wrong I was.  They are very quick, compact and easy to use so are perfect for surfing the web and keeping up with social media such as Twitter.  Without fail I use my tablet every day and I would be completely lost without it.

What more is there to say other than these earmuffs are adorable and are headphones?! Amazing!

Hand held consoles are lots of fun and I remember enjoying them a lot as a child.  My niece who is 9 loves games consoles and I know this is a present she would love Santa to bring her for Christmas! They are also a fun gadget to enjoy if you are travelling or commuting to work.

My Wish List 

Curry's PC World

So I have a confession.. my sense of direction isn't the best so I can do with all the help I can get.  Also, I often go on 'road trips' with my boyfriend to visit friends and we have to rely on the map book or online maps to get us to our destination.  Therefore, an easy choice on my wish list is a Sat Nav!

I would love to get a new ipod because my Shuffle is so full I am unable to load any more songs on it.  I really fancy a larger one so either this Nano or a touch screen one would be perfect.

We moved last year and thanks to our lovely friends and family we were lucky enough to be given a spare TV to use in our lounge.  It looks fab and does the job but isn't as modern as some on the market now so at some point in the future I would love to get a snazzy flat screen one.  Not any time soon, though!

Microsoft Xbox One - £429.00
This one is on my wish list not for me but for my boyfriend.  I would love to be able to buy him it as he loves his XBOX 360 .
