Cool Tech Gifts for Your Easter Basket
This morning’s satellite media tour was so fun for talking about unique gift ideas for those Easter baskets. In addition to the requisite chocolate, jelly, gummy and marshmallow-y items that are a must, consider the following really fun and unique gifts to include as well.
If you grew up playing Super Mario Bros. like I did, you’ll be so excited to share these figures with your kids. These are interactive figurines that come to life with the Wii U Game Pad or the New Nintendo 3DS XL. You can customize Mario, Princess Peach, Yoshi and more for games like Mario Party 10 and Super Smash Bros., and it’s a perfect gift for gamers of all ages. ($12.99 each)
For a really unique gift idea, maybe a toy from your own childhood, check out Gemr.com. This is a new social network in town and it’s for collectors, by collectors. You can buy, share, trade, sell and discover anything and everything that people collect, whether it’s comics, sneakers, sports memorabilia, art, antiques and lots of other cool collectibles. From now until April 3, Gemr invites you to sign up for free on the website or iOS and Android app. If you bring the most people on, you’ll win a $500 AMEX gift card. If you invite 10 people, you’ll get a free Gemr t-shirt.
Talk about educational and entertaining at the same time! The Dino Pet is a magic trick, science lesson and pet all in one. You fill up the Dino Pet with living dinoflagellates, set them in indirect light all day, shake the Dino Pet at night and watch them glow a beautiful blue. This is a natural occurrence called bioluminescence and is a great way for kids to learn science. You can learn about it from The Dino’s Tale Storybook. What a fun addition to any Easter basket! ($59.99)
