Top Gift Ideas for 2008!! - - - What is YOUR Top Pick?

Services for Real Estate Pros with Independent Coach, Trainer & Consultant
Okay, so I was looking around for the 'Top Gifts' for 2008, like I do every year.

- It's quite fun to see what 'everyone' thinks is best and what we end up with here at home, etc. (Gives you a good idea how much TV the kids are watching, too!)

So here's the challenge, this year it looks as if the retailers have figured out that they can leverage this info as a sales and marketing ploy - a full 95% of the articles I found are posted by the retailers themselves! - Needless to say, they do not agree on what's 'Tops' on our lists this year.

So I put it to you all - Techies, Old-Schoolers, Kids, Parents, and the rest of us - What is YOUR Top 5 gift list this year?

Thanks for sharing and have a Very Merry Christmas Indeed!!

I know agents like that....they crown themselves "Tops in Sales" or "#1 in sales" or "Million Dollar Producer" (whatever that means).

So we have something in common with retailers rating their product as "best this season".

Michael: Agreed!!

Russ: Yes, I think the Wii is way up there, so much in fact that they are now publishing 'injury' reports on it. (you know you are popular when the tomatoes start flying!). GPS is one of my top picks. All the grandparents and in-laws have them now, quite a shift from years past.

I'm not a Christmas gifter or giftee, so I don't have a list. I did an inspection on Christmas day, and I have one on New Year's day as well, so my top gift would probably be continued business success.

Best wishes for health, happiness, peace, and prosperity in 2009.

We gave Blackberrys to every one on the Real estate side and books to the family. We all count on computers so much I doubt they can turn a page. Have a great New Year.
