I would give my mom the amazon echo. It really is useful as it can turn on lights, and can finally play music (my mom bought 2 soundars just for playing music in her room. LOL) its a little over-priced but still worth it for the non techies.

Hi Linus and Team!

This year I want to make my moms Christmas really special!

She is currently using an old Samsung flip phone that is starting to wear out. It's so bad that sometimes she will borrow my dads, or my phone to call or text someone. She also always has to carry around her iPad with her to take pictures. I am wanting to get her a Moto G 3rd Gen for Christmas this year. It's a smartphone, it has a good enough camera for her, she can read on it, and it has Facebook. Lol Plus it is running close to stock android; So it's easy for her to learn and use. This phone would be perfect for her.

I would give my father a pair of Audio Technica ATH-ANC9 headphones because he is an avid music listener and travels a lot. He is currently using some cheap airline headphones that he got for free.

This is such a cool idea!

My mom just recently broke her laptop and shes really bummed because she cant get her work done easily, so i think the 10.1 inch ASUS chrome book 4gb would really help her out!

I would love to give my father an asus zenpad. he loves reading and music, a tablet would be like a combination of an ereader and an mp3 device. he just got the hang of smartphones with a blackberry z10, and I've been trying to feed his curiosity with tablets (and android...).




I think the link directs you to the 4GB RAM-64GB storage... but the 2GB-32GB would be great too.


Thank you for this giveaway, you guys are awesome!

1. Sennheiser HD 598 SE (Blacks) Link: http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD-598-Over-Ear-Headphones/dp/B0126HISOO/ref=pd_sim_23_66?ie=UTF8&dpID=41bMMAXlJZL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR130%2C160_&refRID=180WSD4T278V6SQXZCS8


2. Grandma   3. Around 2 months ago I purchased the August EP650's
in the Silver version. I purchased these all by myself
with money I collected from opinionoutpost.com. Knowing
that I loved them and had them on my head 3 hours a
day my Grandma asked to year them. I put on some
classical music (that's what she likes) and she loved it.
​She usually uses just the speaker that is inside of
her phone and so this is just way different.
My mom started working so I had to walk for a week
from school to home. My grandma without any
hesitation started driving me with nothing in
return. I have respect her a lot and she treats me like
a human, not like a child. I love her a lot and
I think she would really love these. I'm also
going to buy a cheap $20 amp to pair with
these so they're usable with her phone
(LG G2) smoothly.
I have a picture of me, my grandma, and my sister a while back.
Bye and thanks for reading :)

The ASUS ZenPhone 2 64GB is the best option for my father right now. He's always wanted a smartphone, but he insists that we don't get him one because they're too pricey for him. At least now he won't be able to complain if he wins!  :P

Intel Core i7-6700K | Corsair H105 | Asus Z170I PRO GAMING | G.Skill TridentZ Series 16GB | 950 PRO 512GB M.2


Asus GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB STRIX OC | BitFenix Prodigy (Black/Red) | XFX PRO Black Edition 850W

I hope this counts

I would buy an HTC Desire 626 for my mom (she wants it for quite the long time now and she is still using an old ass nokia ...)(http://www.amazon.com/HTC-Desire-626s-Contract-Phone/dp/B014X5UZJI/ref=sr_1_3?s=wireless&ie=UTF8&qid=1449788404&sr=1-3&keywords=htc+desire+626)

if both items together are under 300$ at the time of draw ... i think both items could count xD

GPU - Gainward RTX 2070 Phantom ; PSU - Corsair RM750x Cooler - CM Hyper 212 EVO

I would like to give my brother a Galaxy Tab S. He would benefit from one for taking notes in school. This will also replace his old Lenovo Thinkpad that is super old and the battery is broken, so it must be plugged in at all times.

The gift I would like to give are a sound bar for my parents. The sound bar comes with a subwoofer, and they are the JBL sb250 that were recently released (http://www.amazon.com/JBL-SB250-Soundbar-Subwoofer-Bluetooth/dp/B017UZUMBE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1449789460&sr=8-1&keywords=jbl+sb250). They recently got a new tv to replace their old one which was almost as old as me, but the sound could be better. Hopefully this will deliver!

My father is a professor and he carries a laptop to the university every day, carrying and setting up the computer is rather slow and consumes him time so I would go for something small and easy to carry like "Samsung Galaxy Tab A 9.7-Inch Tablet"; considering the size for his poor eye sight.
