For Aspiring Directors

Splurge Family Gift: Turn Your Computer Into a Theater

Acer Projector

For bigger-than-life family nights, simply connect the Acer X1161P Projector to your laptop or gaming system, then sit back and enjoy the show. The projector keeps images crystal clear up to a 25-foot diagonal screen size—maybe too large for that home video of Uncle Jim eating birthday cake but perfect for the latest blockbuster DVD at a backyard movie night.

Acer, $349

Easy On The Ears

Lalaloopsy headphones

Lalaloopsy Headphones have everything a young girl could want for listening to her tunes: cushioned ear pads and cute styling. They also sport features parents want: volume control, durability, and affordability.

A New Computer Mouse

Squeaky Clean Mouse

Keep the family screens smudge-free with a Squeaky Clean mouse. This machine-washable microfiber pal cleans little fingerprints and more from computers, MP3 players, CDs, and phones.
