With electronic gifts topping most wish lists this holiday season, millions of consumers are expected to spread the joy with iPads, e-readers, gaming devices, digital cameras and more. This December, the average spend on tech gifts is projected to hit an all-time high of $232.00 per gift giver*.

Top Tips for e-Holiday Gift Giving:

  • Order Early! Don’t wait until the last minute to get the perfect gadget or gizmo as popular items tend to sell out early in the season. If you wait too long, the item could be gone!
  • Open, Battery and Test! Don’t be concerned about being rude by opening the box before you give the gift. It is more thoughtful to open, battery and test the item, making sure it works, so the gift can be enjoyed as soon as it’s unwrapped.
  • Wrap it Up with Tech Support! If you’re giving a technology gift, avoid Christmas day tears and frustrations by also giving your loved one three months of 24/7 access to professional one-on-one technical support for just $19.99.

Tech Support For Dummies is now offering a limited-time holiday support special. Using the code HOLIDAY CHEER, folks can now take advantage of three months of unlimited access to a personal technologist for only $19.99.
