Holiday gadget gifts to avoid: Digital photo frames top the list

We’re coming up to the busy holiday shopping season now with Black Friday just around the corner and bargains to be had. Before you go mad though, you might be interested in the findings of a new survey which looked into the least-wanted holiday gadget as a gift.

If you’ve already gone out and purchased digital photo frames for all the family you may want to take them back as they top the list of unwanted products. I must be the exception to the rule as I’d really like one but then I always like to be different. Tim Stevens over on Engadget, sourced from the BVA, reports on the survey that asked 2,000 Brits their most unwanted or unused gadget gifts.

Apparently one in three of those surveyed had received an unwanted tech gadget. Along with digital photo frames other least-wanted gifts included foot spas, blenders, digital organisers, electronic Sudoku games and coffee machines. Further down the list some other unwanted gifts included electronic shoe polishers (never knew they existed), desk top vacuum machines and ladyshaves.
