The Verizon Holiday Gift Guide

The Holiday season is here and tech gifts are at the top of everyone’s wish list. But that doesn’t mean a trip to a crowded mall or the nearest electronics superstore. Verizon Wireless has developed a Holiday Gift Guide that allows you to shop for great tech gifts from the comfort of your own home. Featuring tablets, toys, headphones and more, the Gift Guide has something for everyone – at prices that won’t break the bank. Here are some of our favorites:

Helo TC™ Touch-Controlled Helicopter

This amazing remote-controlled helicopter is operated from your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch or Android device using the multi-touch display. Just download the free app, plug in the Flight Deck transmitter, and you’re ready to fly. The joystick-style controls allow you to move the helicopter forward, backward, side to side, and even bring it in for smooth landings. Safe for use indoors.

Price: $49.99

Crayola® ColorStudio™ HD

The Crayola iMarker combines with the ColorStudio HD app to turn your iPad into the best coloring book ever. The intelligent digital stylus works like a pen, crayon and paintbrush all rolled into one. The animated coloring book provides an unlimited number of backdrops, as well as a variety of musical accompaniments and other sound effects. Parents can print out their kids’ artwork or share it via e-mail and Facebook.

As you may have guessed, it is made of titanium and some stainless steel¡ªthe case is titanium and the rolex replica sale is stainless steel. The dial is brown, the watch hands are silver-toned, and there is a date window at the four o¡¯clock position. The sapphire case protects the breitling replica sale from water damage up to 30 meters. Synergy means cooperative action. This replica watches uk combines the best of the old and the new to deliver something uniquely modern. All of the classic elements are there. It has the sleek and stylish dial of the replica watches uk, the concave dot at the 12 o¡¯clock hour, and the Swiss quartz movement. But the Sapphire Synergy has something few breitling replica sale offer, a rubber wristband. Why rubber? Well, it¡¯s not a sport rolex replica sale, so using it outdoors is out of the question. But the informal band gives it a more casual look and feel, which can be quite appealing to the modern male.
