Shelly Palmer Radio Report – December 24, 2012

[powerpress url=”″]

It’s Christmas Eve, which means many of us are scrambling for last-minute holiday gift ideas for our family and friends. If you’re stuck in this position, you’re either a major procrastinator or stuck on one last person. If you’re like me, a lot of your friends are heavy into technology, but already seem to have everything they could want. What are you supposed to buy them? Think digital. While they may already have the latest tablet or smartphone, it’s always a great idea to give them content for that portable media player. Gifts like Netflix or Hulu Plus subscriptions, or even a year of Amazon Prime give them all the video content they could ever ask for. Even if they’re already a subscriber, these gifts will save them money down the road, as they can tack on these extra months to their current plan. For the techie who has everything, it’s a matter of looking to and preparing for the future.
