Hottest Christmas gift ideas from Amazon

  As many of you know I’ve been busy writing about the best Christmas presents and how to pick them. But I’ve been asked “What are the hottest Christmas gifts”? Of course, there’s no one answer to this. It really depends on a lot of factors. Like how much will you spend? Online or off line? And what type of gift are you looking for!
          However I can tell you what’s hot for Christmas with one of the leaders in gift giving! So without further ado, here are the Hottest Christmas gift ideas from Amazon!

Toys & Games
          In toys and games the #1 by far is Cards against Humanity!
                   This is a party card game for adults! The whole thing is to draw a black question (or fill in the blank) card and everyone gets to answer with their funniest white card.
The appeal is being “naughty” under the safety net of a game! Don’t worry about inappropriate or politically correct, everything is fair game in this game! It is absolutely a hilariously fun game. Guaranteed to be a hit at any party! 
                   A word of caution; do not buy from third party sites, people are getting ripped off there.
The LEGO Minecraft the Nether 21106 is a close second. Who knew Legos were so durable in time?

Movies & TV
When it comes to Movies & TV. The winner is- you guessed it - Breaking Bad: The Complete Series (+UltraViolet Digital Copy) [Blu-ray])!!  This series has taken viewers by storm. If he’s not already hooked, this will chinch it for him (hope you like it)!
          Forget about a second choice- this is the one!!

The top requested item in Amazons electronics section is the Google Chromecast HDMI Streaming Media Player. Now you can stream music and video from you smart phone, tablet, or p.c. right onto your HD TV! It says it works with Android, iOS, Chrome for Mac, and Chrome for Windows, but I’ve been told it isn’t stable with Chrome applications.
My personal choice is the All-New Kindle Fire HDX 7" Tablet. This has the fastest processor on a 7" tablet ever! With its powerful 2.2GHz quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM you will get great streaming at lightning speed! Trust me this is your pc in your hand!

          In the world of books, The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism by Naoki Higashida is by far the best on Amazon! This about a 13yr. boy with autism. But not from a dr. or moms point! It’s actually from a 13yr. boy with severe autism! Though he is unable to speak out loud, Naoki answers even the most delicate questions that people want to know using an alphabet grid to painstakingly construct words, sentences, and thoughts! Awesome!!
Want to know “Why do people with autism talk so loudly and weirdly?” “Why do you line up your toy cars and blocks?” “Why don’t you make eye contact when you’re talking?” and “What’s the reason you jump?”  This is the book! Well worth owning.  
Doctor Sleep: A Novel by Stephen King (return to The Shining!),
 And The Goal: A Process of Ongoing Improvement by Eliyahu M. Goldratt are a couple of other great books doing well.

          Video Games

This brings us to video games. Here it’s a no-brainer! Grand Theft Auto V wins hands down!! Available for Xbox and PS3, this version has a lot of new features.
          First thing you’ll notice is Los Santos combined with the countryside of Blaine County is a big place! This is the largest open world the developers at Rockstar have ever created!
You can go from the tops of the mountains, through the streets of Los Santos and to the depths of the ocean floor.

    Players switch between Michael, Franklin and Trevor constantly with a single button press, allowing them to see missions from different perspectives! They work together to pull off grand Heists - big, multi-part missions that require careful preparation, recruiting, and precise (and often explosive) execution.
For recreation, participate in multiple activities including yoga, triathlons, jet skiing, base jumping, tennis and golf!
          For adrenaline heads, parachute over the city, or customize your Cheetah.
Or earn cash the old fashioned way, by taking it - whether by ripping off liquor stores or by buying and taking over businesses that will earn you dividends.
          Even minding your own business having a stroll you may encounter faded celebrities, party people, hikers, bikers, and every other manner of colorful denizen, finding yourself off on a wild misadventure you never expected!

                   Though Amazon has tons of good music, I decided to leave music up to you. Since I have no idea about what your tastes are, I don’t want to make recommendations. You can use this link and see for yourself what you want!
