The Weird Stuff that Sells for Gifts
I thought it was interesting to see best sellers for gifts.
The higher-end stuff makes sense to me (check out the $1000+ stuff), but I don’t know why I’d want Xcellon Dancing Water Speakers. Well, maybe I do—they’re just weird and fun.
Interesting: Apple laptops and iMac 5K dominate the $1000+ gifts; no PCs.

- 13 Days of Deals at B&H Photo, new deals every day.
- See the B&H DealZone, which has a new deal every 3 hours or so.
- Digital cameras (many brands with good discounts). The Nikon D3300 with 18-55mm lens looks like a great buy.

- $250 off Apple 15.4" MacBook Pro Notebook Computer with Retina Display (Mid 2015)

- PNY Technologies 256GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive (42% off) — my kids need a flash drive for school, and this one is high capacity and relatively inexpensive. It’s not likely to perform as well or be as durable as the more robust and fast OWC Envoy Pro Mini thumb drive (see MPG review of the OWC Envoy Pro Mini). So maybe Dad and Mom get the OWC and the kids get the PNY.
- Canon PowerShot G16 Digital Camera + Canon PIXMA PRO-100 + free shipping = effective price $269.99 after $350 mail-in rebate. WOW—printer by itself is $149.99! [ENDS Dec 6]
- Canon PIXMA PRO-100 Wireless Professional Inkjet Photo Printer at 60% off (includes 50 sheets semi-gloss photo paper also). Effective price $149.99 plus the $36.99 included paper. Great deal on a high quality photo printer. Lloyd owns the PIXMA PRO-100 and PIXMA PRO-10—excellent printers. There are many other inkjet and laser printers up to 60% off.
