he holidays mean many things: a welcome break from the daily grind, getting together with friends and family, and of course, giving gifts. But what, exactly, do you buy for people? The possibilities can be endless, and all too many of us are stymied when it comes to figuring out what to buy our loved ones. And let’s face it—many of us also wait until the last minute and then subject ourselves to the stress of scrambling to find that perfect something for that perfect someone.
As a result, sometimes we miss the mark completely, offering people things they’ll never, ever use or enjoy: hideous, cornea-torturing holiday sweaters, worthless gadgets, and the bane of every holiday season, the notorious, ill-advised fruitcake.
No wonder the phenomenon of “re-gifting” is so widespread. But there’s a way to make that the gifts you give never wind up being unappreciated or superfluous. It’s easy. Just give someone something they can actually use, that’s all.
LG Watch Urbane in Silver
LG Music Flow Streaming Speakers
Have someone with a love of gadgets? (And who doesn’t.) The following LG items are sure to make the holidays both fun, as well as functional. Like the LG Watch Urbane which has a classic timepiece design with a full-circle P-OLED Display for stunning image clarity and is both water and dust resistant. Or an LG Music Flow wireless speaker, which allows you to connect via Wi-Fi to seamlessly play music from a number of compatible mobile devices, NAS drives, PCs, and of course, streaming content providers.
LG Hom-Bot Square Robotic Vacuum
Have someone on your list who could use a hand? LG’s Hom-bot Square Robotic vacuum is a perfect tech-forward and functional gift. It not only sweeps but mops, and can even remember where to resume the job if it is interrupted. It also has contoured corners and longer side brushes to reach dust in corners, 7 cleaning modes, a built-in rechargeable battery, and a revolutionary Dual Eye 2.0 mapping system that can even learn your home’s layout and identify objects to avoid. (Like the dog.)
Or how about the LG Styler Steam Clothing Care System? It uses the power of steam to remove odors, wrinkles and refresh your clothes without dry cleaning. With the simple press of a button, this slim, compact unit leaves everything from pants to shirts to blouses looking fresh and ready to be worn. Best of all, it uses nothing but water—in the form of steam, of course—to sanitize your clothing with absolutely no chemical additives.
And last but not least, one thing that everyone in the family could use is a new TV. And LG’s latest line of OLED TVs do not disappoint. Take the new OLED55B6P OLED 4K Smart TV, for example. With its self-illuminating pixels, it produces infinite picture contrast, cinematic color, and absolute black, and with its built-in harman/kardon® sound system, this OLED TV delivers a theater-quality experience right at home. Plus, it comes with webOS 3.0 functionality, LG’s latest Smart TV platform which gives you access to endless entertainment, allowing you to connect to mobile devices and all your favorite content providers like Netflix and YouTube seamlessly.
So when it comes to buying something special for that special someone, one option is to go for pure function, with any of these time-proven choices which are guaranteed to please. Fruitcakes, eat your heart out, because gifts these practical will never, ever be re-gifted. Happy holidays.
