The perfect thin package
And they say thin packages are normally unpopular, but I think we can guarantee that a thin iPad or iPad Mini will be more than welcome under the Christmas tree this year.
The iPad has seen not one but two upgrades this year, and unless you have already bought one, it will be the iPad 4 with Retina display you will be getting. Or if the budget does not quite stretch all the way to the top model, there is the new iPad Mini to consider, with its smaller 7.9-inch screen, lower price, but still the same cool factor.
I doubt you will get any complaints if you put a new iPad or iPad Mini under the tree, so why not compare some prices and places to buy below.
This package has grown this year
The iPhone has grown up this year, in terms of screen size that is, as the new iPhone 5 features a new 4-inch retina display, making it as Apple calls it; “the best iPhone yet”.
There is plenty to get excited about when it comes to the iPhone 5, from the great screen, to the iSight camera and improved performance. While not the cheapest of Christmas gifts, i bet there will be a few in the family that would like one.
Have a colorful Christmas
Christmas did not quite come last year for iPod fans, but it is definitely here this year with the new 2012 iPod range.
Apple has given the new iPod Touch 5 the same 4-inch retina display found on the iPhone 5 + they have made it lighter, thinner, and more powerful. There should be plenty of fun to be had with this new iPod Touch.
Find and compare deals on the new iPod 2o12 range below.
Many of your friends and family might already own one or more of the Apple gadgets covered so far in this guide, but fear not, there is always room for more accessories to go with them. Accessories for music listening, wired or unwired, are going to be hot items on anyone’s wishlist this year.

Have an (H)Appy Christmas
Not all Apple related presents have to cost a small fortune. How about the gift of an app or a song? iTunes gift cards are great presents, and you can even gift apps straight from iTunes or your iOS device. Personally i would also be very happy with an Amazon Gift Card that can go towards
