Best and Worst Christmas Gifts


Giving and receiving gifts is one of the best parts about the holidays. However it can also be one

of the most stressful parts. We have compiled a list of the best and worst gifts for Christmas in

hopes that this year your gift shopping will be a little less stressful.

Best Gifts

1. GoPro Hero4 Silver

With its built-in touch display and professional video quality, the GoPro Hero4 Silver is

surely to be on more than a few Christmas lists this year. This powerful camera has new

settings for after dark that offers customizable exposure settings of up to 30 seconds for single

and Time Lapse photos. The GoPro Hero4 Silver is a great gift for new shooters as well as

the most experience shooters.

Price: $399.99

2. Sony PlayStation 4

Superb graphics, stellar performance, and an amazing control ( it has a touch pad located on

the top of the controller!), the PS4 is a great gift for your gaming and non-gaming loved ones

alike. With it doubling as a Blu-ray player and streaming box, this is the gift that keeps on


Price: $399.99

3. Rustic Brown Italian Leather Journal

Whether you have a writer, artist, or just a creative mind on your list this year, this journal is

bound to impress just about anyone. With its fine rustic brown leather and tie, it’s great to

carry around and jot down your latest ideas and adventures


4. Apple iPhone 6

We are big Apple fans here at Fluid, so it’s no surprise that we are putting at least one Apple

product on our list. With a larger display screen and sleek design, the iPhone 6 is the perfect

gift for your loved ones. A higher-resolution Retina HD display, great battery life, and faster

wireless are just a few of the great features in the iPhone 6.

Price: iPhone 6 from $199

iPhone 6 Plus from $299

Worst Gifts

1. Roomba

With the best intentions to clean floors like no vacuum can, the Roomba is best left on the

shelf of the store. Giving someone any kind of cleaning product usually ends up with tensions

running high and people feeling like they have been slapped in the face. It’s best just to stay

away from the whole realm of cleaning gifts.

Price: $349.99-699.99

2. Advice or Diet Books

Similarly to cleaning product gifts, you should probably also stay away from the realm of

advice or diet books. Giving someone an advice book sends the message that you are asking

or looking for them to change. Even if this is not the case, this will more than likely be the

message that will be conveyed.

3. Socks

You didn’t think we would go through this whole list of bad Christmas gifts and not include

socks did you? It’s inevitable, every year someone will be mortified when they rip open a

nicely wrapped present topped with ribbons and bows only to feel the emptiness in their soul

when they see a pair of socks staring back at them. It’s simple, don’t gift socks.

4. “As Seen On TV” gifts

We’ve all been there, it’s late at night, we’re on our fifth plate of nachos, and we find the guy

on the TV becoming more and more convincing at trying to sell us a cat toilet training kit.

The best advice I can give you, don’t give in. Trust me on this one; no one will be pleased to

open a gift that includes the Better Marriage Blanket or the Fridge Lock.

    Totally disagree. The Roomba kicks ass! I have one and it is awesome.
