Modern 3 Gifts from Wise Men

Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

LONDON, December 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

It's that time of year again. Nativity costumes are being feverishly crafted for the end of school performance, high streets are flooded by panicked present hunters and the festive feast for families across the nation takes at least a month to prepare with enough left overs to last until next Christmas.

The Christmas chaos that descends on households over the festive period is a million miles away from the initial early days of the celebration when all it took was Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold to rejoice at Christmas.

But what if these three wise men were able to give modern presents? What would they pick now?

Holidays

Undoubtedly, any wise man worth his salt would give the gift of travel in the modern world. The Magi (or wise men) were travellers themselves so they'd certainly appreciate the competitive deals currently available.

A growing number of people are going on holiday for festive fun and a relaxing break away from seasonal insanity. Despite being at peak season holiday deals are not hard to find. There are a huge number of holiday destinations to choose from over the festive season for all types of holiday.

Whether you're looking to soak up some winter sun with a Tunisia holiday or make the most of the snow with a skiing excursion, a Christmas celebration can be full of festive joy and happiness anywhere in the world.

New experiences

Another wise gift would be an experience unlike anything else. Visiting the Pyramids or having an authentic Turkish bath are things you're unlikely to forget and can make a luxurious gift for any individual.

Luckily, travellers will not have to wait for a wise man to give them this gift as cheap Egypt holidays and holidays to Turkey are widely available. Embracing something new and looking to the stars for guidance is something the three kings would certainly recommend so make sure you choose an activity which will have real relevance to the recipient.

Modern technology

Another must-have gift in modern times would involve the latest technology. This could come in a number of forms, from Simon the face and voice recognition social robot to a computer tablet or smartphone.

The modern age is undoubtedly a digital one and technology shapes the way we communicate and interact with one another.*

Portable handheld wireless devices are so popular and easy to use that a number of travellers take them overseas with them, providing plenty of scope for gift ideas.
