Digital Photo Frames Are Most Unwanted Christmas Gifts


They might be a good way to show-off your best images -- but digital photo frames have been named as the most unwanted gadget Christmas present of 2010.

A survey of around 2,000 Brits by the British Video Association discovered the digital photo frame was almost sure to disappoint if given as a gift.

In fact they topped a list of the 10 most unwanted Christmas presents -- making them worse presents than foot spas, electronic Sudoku games and the dreaded festive gift… the electric toothbrush.

Top 10 gadget gaffs to avoid:

• Digital photo frames

• Foot spas

• Blenders

• Digital organisers

• Electronic Sudoku games

• Coffee machines

• Digital radios

• Electric shavers

• Electric toothbrushes

• Bread makers

A spokesperson for British Video Association, said: "Many of the gadget gaffs cited by our study are gifts that have a lot of novelty appeal, but perhaps a limited shelf life. 

"A candy-floss maker is great for beating those Boxing Day blues, but a games console or 3D Blu-ray player are future-proof."
