Still stumped by all this technology?

Gift cards are always a great choice. Almost everyone on your list would love cards like iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Best Buy and Netflix. You can purchase these cards at many local grocery stores and pharmacies.

Something on everyone’s wish lists are a way to preserve photos that seem to be forever trapped in these devices we hold in our hands all day. Use Shutterfly or a store like Walmart or Meijer, to design a photo hardbound book (complete with captions) or go “old school” and take their smartphone to make prints of favorite digital images. “Tech the Halls” this holiday season.
