Subscription Gift Cards
Available on Amazon and local retailers

It’s the perfect gift for the person who appears to have everything. Nowadays it seems that there’s a subscription gift card to get anyone on your list. From Hulu Plus Gift Cards to Spotify Premium Gift Cards to even Microsoft Points and Xbox Live Monthly Subscription Cards, they are the simplest way to please anyone and they are extremely kind on your wallet. They are always on my holiday wishlist and sometimes are overlooked and are always an easy way to check off a few people from your holiday gift list.

Zumba Fitness Core
Available on Amazon

Have someone who’s looking to stay fit this holiday? Why not check out Zumba Fitness Core which is the lastest installment in the Zumba franchise that is targeted specifically to work out your core. If they happen to have a Kinect that is simply just sitting there, you might want to check out this title to not only help them get a jump start on their New Year’s Resolution but to also to stay fit and maybe even learn some new dance moves. Zumba Fitness Core features everything from Brazilian Funk to Celtic Blue Grass to Ballet to Jazz and even Disco with dance routines that target your core and have you working up a real sweat.

Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance
Available on Amazon

While everyone’s still wondering when Kingdom Hearts 3 will just finally release, Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance does an excellent job of summarizing the events of EVERY SINGLE Kingdom Hearts and finally confirm that KH3 is the works, even if we don’t know when it’s going to be released. If you have someone that is huge Kingdom Hearts fan or even a Disney, this title is a must. It definitely had me glued to my 3Ds for weeks.

SOL Republic Headphones
Available at SOL Republic Online

If you have someone on your list that is an audiophile but you’re on a budget, these might be worth checking out. They’re a little cheaper than the Beats headsets and deliver audio sound that is comparable to them. The best part is that the entire headset is customizable. The headband, cable and speakers can be mixed and match to create a pair of headphones that are unique. Couple that with an indestructible headband and you could not only keep your giftee fashionable but you can ensure that their gift will last through the next couple of Christmases.

Afterglow Universal Headset
Available on Amazon

It’s been awhile since I found a pair of headsets that were not only comfortable and great sounding but were also affordable. While the Afterglow Universal Headset is a wired headset, which might be a con for some, it’s low price point makes it a neat gift for anyone looking for a nice pair of headphones that won’t break the bank.

Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation
Available from Mophie

If you know anyone that has ever run out of battery power for their phone while they were out and about, then the Mophie Juice Pack Powerstation might be the best gift for them. It’s a compact battery pack that you simply charge at home and conveniently carry with you for those times that you might not be able to find a plug and recharge your devices. It works for any device as long as you have your USB cable with you and definitely is capable to fully charge an iPad.
