Christmas is coming up fast and its time to think about gifts!  Useful gifts are the key, something that has a purpose not just stuff ?!

Its a great time to think about headphones for school that need to be replaced for next year or perhaps ways to keep the kids entertained on holidays this summer.

Here is our pick of a couple of items you may like to put under the tree. They are good value for money, we've used them happily with no probs at all and we think they are useful items that your recipient will get a lot of use out of. Keep reading we are also giving away a Portable DVD Player that I KNOW will look good under your tree!


Useful Gadget Gifts and a GiveawayLaser Portable DVD Player Review



Laser Portable DVD Player

Available at: Big W   RRP $179.95
If a tablet isn’t an option for the kids, Laser’s Portable DVD Player will be a hit. With the option to play movies from DVD discs (all regions) or USB, the options are endless for hours of entertainment (and peace and quiet). With large 10-inch LCD screen, the DVD Player can be recharged via a wall or car power adaptor and comes complete with earphones in the box. You can enjoy peace and quiet in the car while the kids quietly watch their favourite show in the backseat. We love the fact it has a swivel screen and it comes in its own carry case.  A complete package.



Laser Kids Headphones Review


Laser Bluetooth Headphones

Available at:   RRP $29.95
Great for streaming music or watching movies in the car, Laser’s Bluetooth Headphones are the perfect choice. Available in a stylish Navy Blue or Peach colour, the foam ear cups offer hours of comfortable listening for up to 12 hours with one charge and built-in Bluetooth 2.1 delivers stereo sound. Rechargeable via Micro-USB within just 4 hours and foldable ear-cups make for easy storage in your bag, these are the perfect companion for some ‘me’ time.

The Laser Portable DVD player would be wonderful to watch back the good times we capture each time we get the video camera out. We would then be able to share our adventures with Granny and Poppy.

We have a young lady in our family (7 years) who loves movies, especially any musicals. She would love the DVD player. Also the family is making a special trip to see the Grandparents this Christmas and this would be perfect for the trip.

With no TV reception at our house,

to win a Laserco portable DVD player would be grouse.

Our family would also use it on the go,

as trips from farm to town sometimes can be awfully slow.

For this to be found under the Chrissy tree,

I can just imagine the smiles and jumps of glee.

Our little monkeys are growing so fast
So we want to make memories that will last.
Booking a South West coastal stay,
For a relaxing family getaway.
Though hours on the road together,
Could see me at the end of my tether.
A Laser Portable DVD Player,
Would be the perfect boredom slayer!

Hi, I am a Volunteer Coordinator in Aged Care. I would love to have a Laser Portable DVD player under the tree at our Volunteers Christmas Party this year. I'd do a lucky draw for one of the dedicated and caring volunteers to take this home for Christmas. Volunteers do amazing work. It's time they got to sit back and enjoy a great flick. Thanks.
