My top 5 gift ideas for Christmas



Don’t worry, I am not trying to be Oprah Winfrey; it’s a few days to Christmas and I felt like sharing some quick and simple gift ideas that I came across through my work this year. They are simple, relatable and good last minute gifts to give to friends, family and loved ones – if you haven’t decided what to get them already!

TV on the Go- Don’t Miss a thing!

I am sure that by now, DStv Mobile’s innovative ways around watching television on the go is common knowledge. From watching selected DStv channels on mobile phones to tablets, smart phones, PCs and laptop, you can take your TV viewing experience everywhere you go this Christmas in selected parts of the country. Well if you are a traditional person and think television should only be enjoyed on a TV set, why not try the “Walka Handheld TV,” a device with a 3.5-inch display capable of receiving the DStv’s DVB-H mobile TV signal? At a cool Gh¢199, DStv Walka is one of the coolest gadgets to give out as gifts this Xmas.

Staying connected the simple way!

Christmas is all about giving and sharing, and sometimes the simple words we communicate to let our family and friends know we care, are the best gifts we can give. If you live in a country like Ghana were most mobile networks jam up with the huge congestions during Christmas Day and New Year, you are better off having two separate networks to choose from when making that call or sending that nice SMS. In comes the Nokia C2-00, a dual SIM with easy swap that lets you stay connected at least when it matters. It’s a Nokia phone so you know its quality, and there is no hustle in swapping SIMs.  With your main line inserted below the battery, you can just plug in a second SIM on the side without even turning off your phone. The Nokia C2-00 also supports up to 32GB memory card use; and it has stereo FM radio, MP3 player, GPRS and a web browser. It also has a VGA camera but surely if you want to take memorable pictures this holiday, it wouldn’t be your camera of choice.
