With all the new products released every year for the Christmas season, sometimes it seems like a best new holiday gifts competition. Which gifts would be great for the people on your shopping list this Holiday 2007?
1. Braun Pulsonic Shaver
The Braun Pulsonic Shaver is a top-of-the-line grooming tool. Even Popular Mechanics reviewed the shaver, calling the product's release "an exciting moment for grooming." The Pulsonic uses vibrations to produce a closer, smoother, less painful shave. It also features a combination cleaning, lubricating and charging stand.
2. iPod Touch
IPods have always drawn fans with their sleek designs and easy-to-use interfaces, and the line's newest incarnation is no exception. The iPod Touch offers a large display for videos, iTunes compatibility, and Wi-Fi web browsing capabilities, all controlled through the touch-screen interface that made the iPhone so innovative.
3. Guitar Hero III
Guitar Hero III lets players live out their rock star fantasies. With versions available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii, unlike with some games, your recipient won't be left out by not having a specific game console. As an added bonus, you don't have to be a video game fan to enjoy the game, so it can be a great gift for the whole family.
4. New TV on DVD releases
Many TV on DVD sets have made their debut in recent months. Some of the choices include Seinfeld - The Complete Series, Everybody Loves Raymond - The Complete Series, Scrubs - The Complete Sixth Season and Metalocalypse - Season One. While the complete collections are only for diehard fans, a single season set can be a great way to introduce someone to a show you're sure they'll love.
5. Halo 3
Unlike the Guitar Hero games, Halo 3 is meant for hardcore gamers; it's a first-person shooter with online multiplayer capabilities. However, its appeal is undeniable. Some figures place worldwide sales at over 5 million units, making it a front-runner in the best new holiday gifts competition for sheer popularity. Any fan of the Halo franchise that doesn't already own the game would love a copy for Christmas. Halo 3 is only available for the Xbox 360. Be sure the recipient has this console before purchasing a copy, or make that your first gift before presenting a copy of the game.
6. Harry Potter series box set
The Harry Potter series has enchanted readers since its debut in 1997. With the final book released in July of 2007, now is the perfect time to purchase the complete set for your favorite fantasy fan.
7. 25th Anniversary Care Bear
The 25th Anniversary Care Bear is a great gift for all ages in the best new holiday gifts competition. For those who grew up in the 80s, the stuffed animal provides a dose of nostalgia. With silver and white coloring, it's a stylish and classy toy. However, over the years Care Bears have also proven their appeal to kids. The accompanying DVD adds to the entertainment factor.
9. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and Transformers DVDs
They were two of the summer's biggest movies, and they're sure to be among the most popular gifts for Christmas. At World's End is the final installment of a well-regarded trilogy, and Transformers brought new life to a long-running toy and cartoon franchise. Fans of the movies or the source material will appreciate having these new releases in their collections.
10. R.E.M. Live CD and DVD set
As the first live album from R.E.M. in the band's nearly 30-year history, this was a highly-anticipated release. R.E.M. Live is an essential gift for any R.E.M. fan, but with 22 tracks of the band's top song, it would be a great gift for any music fan.
