Lumps of Coal: 5 Gadget Gifts to Avoid
Whether you’re buying a tablet for your 8-year-old or a new smartphone for Mom, you don’t want to gift a gadget that’s going to end up gathering dust in a closet somewhere. It’s easy to get drawn in by a bargain or fall for advertising hype that makes a tech product look a lot more useful than it is in real life.
Unfortunately, when Dad discovers that the $300 computer you gave him doesn’t run his programs and Junior complains because he can’t play the same games as his friends on that console you bought, you’ll feel more like the Grinch than Santa Claus. Save yourself from standing in that return line and don’t give anyone these five gadget gifts to avoid.
