ROKU STREAMING MEDIA PLAYER ($99) — The Roku Player has been the easiest way to get Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand  and MLB.tv content instantly streamed to your display.

BARNES & NOBLE NOOK eBOOK READER / AMAZON KINDLE ($259) — The Amazon.com Kindle was the first eBook reader that really made an impact. However, the newly announced Nook from Barnes & Noble is a very good gift idea for a book worm or technology geek. The native PDF support and color LCD screen in addition to the eInk screen makes this reader the most advanced one yet. The panel is currently sold out until Jan 4th, however, you can still give the gift as the form of a Nook Gift Certificate. For those that want to give a gift that can actually be under the tree in time for Christmas, the Amazon Kindle is still a great option.

PANASONIC LUMIX DMC-GF1 ($899) — A DSLR may be considered too bulky for some people and that’s why Panasonic’s highly reviewed Lumix DMC-GF1 is a great gift for the photographer in your family. The DMC-GF1 is a 12.1-megapixel “Micro Four Thirds” based camera which means there isn’t a mirror and pentaprism inside so the camera can be made much more compact. Quality is comparable with similarly priced DSLR’s and another selling point of a “Micro Four Thirds” camera is that you can mount “any” lens that is made to this standard… even from other manufacturers.
