Christmas shopping for friends and loved ones can make even the most
experienced shopper break out in a sweat - what to buy the woman who
has everything? The latest survey from Kodak reveals that you
won’t go wrong with a gadget – over one in five of
the women surveyed would put the latest must-have technology item at
the top of their Christmas wish list.
When Kodak asked women their thoughts on finding a gadget under the
Christmas tree, almost 70% of those surveyed said they would be
ecstatic or pleased. Interestingly, technology gifts are
popular with all ages and generations – people over the age
of 55 are just as likely to put a gadget on their gift list as the
16-24 year olds. The survey also revealed that the digital camera is
the item that most people would like to receive, followed by SatNav,
mobile phones, MP3 Players and camcorders.
It seems that stylish gadgets are the current ‘hot
accessories’ as statistics show they are rising in popularity
amongst women. The Kodak survey revealed that the highest proportion of
women surveyed would prefer to receive the latest technological toy
instead of clothing and beauty products for Christmas. The survey also
revealed that gadgets are hugely popular throughout the year and not
just during the festive period - over 70% of women have already treated
themselves to a technology product this year, highlighting the
increasing popularity of gadgets and gizmos amongst women.
Of the women who have requested a digital camera for Christmas, almost
half say it is because they hate missing out on picture taking
opportunities including holidays, Christmas and birthdays. A further
30% of women say a digital camera would make the ideal present as they
have a very keen interest in photography and one in five claim it is
because they love the convenience of being able to store and view
pictures on camera.
For those who wish to purchase gadgets as gifts for friends and loved
ones this Christmas, Kodak’s digital portfolio offers a wide
variety of stylish digital cameras, printers and accessories. Perfect
gifts for the most stylish woman include the stunning Kodak EasyShare
V705 digital camera, which is small enough to drop into a purse or
handbag for outings at Christmas parties this year.
The Kodak EasyShare V705 – the world’s smallest
ultra-wide-angle optical zoom digital camera – is literally
bursting with innovative features and functions that will help users
take the perfect picture this Christmas. In addition to being
super sleek and good looking, the V705 boasts 7 megapixels and 5X
Sharing & editing pictures
The Kodak EasyShare Gallery enables people to organise, edit and share
pictures with friends and family, as well as get real Kodak
prints. It is also possible to order a wide range of
beautiful, original gifts including personalised canvases, photo books
and even playing cards.
Real Kodak photos can be printed quickly and easily within seconds
using one of the many Kodak Picture Kiosks located at high street
retailers, including Boots stores, throughout the UK.
Alternatively, people can print pictures in the comfort of their own
home or on the move using the Kodak EasyShare G600 printer. The
printer’s clever and intuitive features include a built-in
handle, smart paper tray storage and a battery, making portability a
breeze and enabling on-the-go printing. EasyShare printer
docks also allow one-touch printing and, when combined with
the EasyShare software, picture-takers can show their creative side by
making personalised photo greeting cards.
