Is it here – Chrimbo!

Christmas eve is finally here and don’t we all know it…aw..so great music and stuff to make us feel good. Well our sides are about to burst along with our poor old wallets – still we get to sloth out, so not all bad….

It is fast approaching our last Christmas  in the Baytree Studio, for we are soon to open a big present of a shiny new studio complex in January 2012; I’m all emotional – I really can’t wait…as I love new things and places.

Now Twofer’s today featured Jon and Vangelis, the collaborative effort between the singer Jon Anderson (the lead vocalist of the progressive rock band Yes) and the Greek synthesizer musician Evangelos Papathanassiou who is usually known as “Vangelis”. Together they released a number of successful albums in the 1980s -we played ‘Find my way home’ and ‘ I hear you now’

Check out the top 10 Most wanted Christmas gifts this year – in the USA: Are we that much different anymore?

1. Apple Mobile Devices

In our research we found out that the number one wanted product this year is Apple’s iPhone 4S. The second most wanted item is iPad 2. Mobile is very trendy this year!

2. Video Games

One of the most popular game consoles this year is Xbox 360 + Kinect which let you play video games using your body as the controller.

3. Amazon Kindle Fire

As a more affordable alternative to iPad 2, Amazon Kindle Fire is one of the most wanted tablets this year.

4. Holidays & Trips

For a change, instead of buying separate gifts for everyone, you can take your family on a trip. Who wouldn’t love that?!

5. Gift Cards

A surprise to many might be that gift cards are still some of the most wanted items this year. It lets the receiver choose what they really dream to get this season.

6. Clothes and Shoes

Simple gift ideas like leather belts or polo shirts for men and trendy bags or high heels for women are still in demand.

7. Entertainment Tickets

Kids would love to see Six Flags or Disney World tickets in their stockings on a Christmas morning.  On a smaller scale, tickets to a 3D movie theatre are a great idea as well!

8. Music/Media Player

One of the most wanted gadgets this season is iPod touch. It plays music and movies, lets the users play games, record video, take pictures and more. An alternative to iPod touch is its smaller and cheaper sibling, iPod nano.

9. DVDs

Whether it’s a movie or a favorite TV show, people love getting DVDs for Christmas. Blu-ray disc is a great upgrade for an enhanced watching experience.

10. Money

Simple and some people may say materialistic, but the truth is that one of the most popular gifts every year is money. Whether your children or brother is saving for a bigger purchase or you just don’t have any idea what your friend would like to get, money is always a good alternative.
