As soon as December starts, almost everyone starts thinking the thought: I have to start shopping. Instead of wasting money on cheap gadgets and trinkets that are going to break or have the battery quit working, invest in solar stocking stuffers this holiday season! Your relatives will never have to charge these products (so long as they’re kept near a window) and solar gadgets make helpful, fun gifts for anyone! This week we’re in a giving mood, so we’re giving you a list of the best solar gadgets to get your family and friends this year.
For the Outdoorsy Person
For people who love fishing, camping, boating, hunting, or spending any substantial amount of time outside, solar products are a great option. They’ll never have to worry about running out of power when they’re off doing what they love after you give them the ultimate all-in-one solar gadget that’s part radio, part cell phone charger, part flashlight, and all solar. Get one online for as low as $20!
For the Kids
Remote controlled cars are always a great gift for young children. Kids love to choose new avenues to drive and figure out the controls, but parents are always the ones stuck making sure the battery packs are charged. Small solar powered cars are available all over the internet for a super low price to help parents sick of buying AA batteries by the hundreds for their kids multiple gadgets. However, you should make sure your package is set to get to you before Christmas as these items are popular and can sell out quickly. Some solar remote control cars cost as little as $8 but be prepared to pay a little extra for shipping.
For the Baby
Babies are hard to shop for much of the time, especially newborns. Parents likely have plenty of clothes from baby showers and will have already invested in warm outerwear for baby. Since they are too young for most toys, pacifiers and blankets seem to be given in abundance. Stand out this year by giving baby the gift of a night light! Soft, warm colors help babies sleep through the night, not to mention help parents soothe a fussy child without stubbing their toe on the crib! One solar night light with multiple settings is available on Amazon for as little as $23.
For the Guy or Gal on the Go
There’s nothing worse than being en route to an important meeting and having your phone die. Help your family and friends avoid that issue forever with a portable solar charger! The lightweight panel can be transported easily in a pocket or purse to take anywhere. All you have to do it set the charger in the sun, plug in your phone, and let it sit; the sun will do the rest! Portable solar chargers are available online for as low as $15, but more powerful or larger models can reach $30 or higher in price. They are usually in stock and ready to ship in time to toss under the tree.
Bonus Gag Gift: For Family from the South
Having relatives in town as a blessed, fun-filled time for families. As a gag gift for the family ham, send Southern family members home with a solar powered clip-on hat fan! They won’t be dealing with any snow back home, so it might actually come in handy! Get one for around $12 on Amazon.
