Keep them together as a festive set, or split them up into 5 perfect gifts! Either way, get the Mr. Christmas Mini Porcelain Music Box Ornaments Set for only $34.86!

OK, so high-tech gadgets and gizmos might cost more than a cardigan or fancy bath soaps, but imagine the look on a loved one’s face when they tear the wrapping off a sleek iPod docking station, Xbox 360 video game console or small netbook computer.
But with a seemingly endless number of products to choose from, picking the right gift can be an intimidating endeavour.
If you need some ideas for some of the year’s best tech, consider one of the following eight tech toys you can purchase right here at The Shopping Channel (and with their Easy Pay option, if you prefer).
And don’t worry, we won’t tell if you decide to keep these gifts for yourself — even if this year you were more naughty than nice!
WHAT’S THE WORD?
Carry hundreds of digital books with you on something thinner than most magazines with the Aluratek Libre eBook Reader ($144.69). Simply connect the Libre to a computer via its USB cable (included) to transfer over downloaded books in a number of formats including ePub, PDF, RTF, TXT, and more. Plus, you can rent books digitally from your local library (read: no more late fees). Along with the ability to adjust font size on its anti-glare screen, the Libre has a built-in MP3 player, therefore you can listen to music, audiobooks or podcasts, too (headphones included). One hundred classic books are also preloaded, plus there are thousands more available at KoboBooks.com.
MINI BUT MIGHTY
This newly designed Dell Inspiron Mini 10 ($299.54 + FREE S&H) is a sleek-looking 10.1-inch netbook built for work or play. Type comfortably on its 92 percent full-sized keyboard, log onto the Internet wirelessly via built-in Wi-Fi and enjoy battery life up to 8 hours between charges. Other features of this Windows 7 Starter Edition-powered netbook includes an Intel Atom processor, 160GB hard drive, memory card reader and USB ports, and built-in webcam for online video chats.
Simplify the way you charge up your favourite gadgets with the Powermat ($99.98), a slender black mat you can drop your portable electronics on – such as a smartphone, game system or iPod – and it’ll begin charging up the device wirelessly. Not only does this clean up the clutter in your home or office, but it’s better for the environment as the power is cut off once the device is fully charged. Be sure to pick the right Powermat case to outfit your favourite device ($25 to $47 apiece) for the magic to work.
THANKS FOR THE MEMORY
We all know it’s important to back-up your important files – such as irreplaceable photos, camcorder footage, documents and email messages — but not everyone knows how to do it correctly. The Clickfree 1 TB Hard Drive ($164.00) is a convenient gadget for the digital packrat on your gift list. Simply plug the drive into your computer’s USB port and it automatically finds and backs up all your important files for you. That’s right, as its name suggests, you don’t need to click anything at all. By the way, a 1TB drive can store 16,000 hours of music, more than 1,000 hours of video or roughly 320,000 digital photos!
CUT THE CORD
Not all printers are created equal. The HP Photosmart e-All-in-One ($169.98) isn’t just a printer, scanner and copier in one machine — and one that everyone can print to wirelessly in the home – but it’s the first web-enabled printer that lets you print documents or photos from any computer or smartphone outside the home, too. For example, give this present to a less-than-tech-savvy relative and you can email photos of the kids or grandkids, anytime and anywhere, and they’ll have glossy prints in seconds. Built-in apps also let you print Disney colouring books, Sudoku puzzles, recipes, greeting cards, calendars and more.
A TOUCH TOO MUCH
Gift the gift of music (and photos, videos, games and e-books!) with the Apple iPod Touch with Bonuses ($299.16). This 8GB touchscreen media player — which is capable of storing thousands of songs, photos and downloadable applications (”apps”) – synchronizes smoothly with iTunes on your PC or Mac, and also lets you surf the web and pick up email via a Wi-Fi connection. The “bonuses” offered in this bundle include three silicone skins, four screen protectors, a silicone armband, FM transmitter, headphone splitter, extra cables, and more.
They say two heads are better than one, so why not two LCD screens? The Samsung Dual Display Digital Camera ($228.98) is the first digital camera with a second LCD screen — and it’s on the front of the camera. This extra 1.4-inch display helps with self-portraits (when taking photos of yourself for, say, Facebook) or it can serve as a countdown timer to let people know when to smile (big numbers count down from 3 to 1). And if you’re snapping pics of young kids, this extra screen can show adorable animation of a juggling clown in order to keep their attention. This black, 12.2-megapixel point-and-shoot camera also features “smart gesture” technology, allowing you to tilt the camera left or right to scroll through your photos.
TAKE SOME DIRECTION
We all know guys don’t like to ask for directions, so perhaps it’s time to invest in a reliable GPS device for the car. The Garmin Nüvi 255W GPS ($139.98) is a 4.3-inch touchscreen nav unit that can give you clear and accurate turn-by-turn directions anywhere in Canada or the U.S. In fact, this model supports text-to-speech technology, therefore you’ll hear spoken street names, too. Craving Chinese food? Need a gas station? This Garmin model ships with more than six million points of interest, so you’ll be able to find nearby restaurants, hotels, bank machines and gas stations. A fitted case is also included.

Enviro Tech Eco Foam Mattress Topper
Holiday Price: starting at $227.89
5 Easy Pay payments available
Looking to add extra comfort to an existing mattress? Maybe it’s your own, or maybe you’re expecting guests for the Holidays and want to improve the comfort of the bed in your spare room.
The Enviro Tech Eco Foam Mattress Topper absorbs motion and relieves pressure points that can cause tossing and turning. It conforms to the body perfectly, thus improving comfort, circulation and allowing you to have a good night’s sleep.
Plus, it’s an environmentally-friendly and healthy choice. Not only will it extend the life of an existing mattress, allowing you to keep it longer, but the topper itself uses a base of natural soy oil, producing memory foam that is 5 times more responsive to your body’s shape and 9 times cooler to sleep on than conventional, petroleum based foams. The 2.5″ thick topper is covered by an exclusive super plush poly/viscose cover derived from bamboo.
This offer is exclusive to The Shopping Channel in Canada. Manufactured in the USA in a green-approved factory, this mattress topper is dust mite proof, stain resistant, 100% Hypo-allergenic, anti-bacterial & antimicrobial. It is also CFC free and latex free for the most high tech and healthy sleep. 7 Year Warranty.
