One of the easiest and least expensive Christmas gifts is a digital download. With so many people enjoying the Internet, iPods, iPhones, iPads, Galaxies,other smart phones or tablets, a downloaded gift can be just as rewarding as one that you buy at a brick-and-mortar store, wrap and put under the Christmas tree. In fact, for a certain generation, downloads are almost preferred.
The best way to give a downloadable gift is with a gift card. Google Play for Android devices and iTunes for Apple products all have gift cards that you can find at many of your local retailers and especially at large grocery chains.
Amazon also has one of the largest music libraries in existence, accessible with an Amazon’s gift card. With over 10 million songs for download this gift is a sure winner for the audiophile in your family.
If you want to splurge for Christmas, one of the most practical electronic devices to come along is Amazon’s Kindle Wireless Reading Device. You may not be able to physically turn pages with it, but for the sheer volume of reading enjoyment that can be carried in a small purse or very large wallet, nothing beats the Kindle. There are a number of different readers to choose from starting at only $79.99. The savings come on the vast array of downloadable books with most $10 or less and some are even free. In addition, you can download a book in over 100 countries with its wireless coverage. It also allows you to read PDF documents. Reading is knowledge. Kindle is the gift of knowledge. (OK. This is a physical product, but the books are downloads.)
If someone already owns a Kindle or other electronic device on which they can download the Kindle app, you can give a 6-month (or longer) subscription for unlimited reading.
