PJ Lifestyle: Ultimate Holiday Gifts

The Big Easy Oil-Less Infrared Turkey Fryer

Okay, dad, you can finally break out the Turducken without burning down the whole house AllState style. This infrared Turkey Fryer represents a huge step forward in oil-less cooking, allowing the easy cooking of a 16-pound turkey (or any other large cut of meat) without worrying about the hot oil. Thanks to the double-wall cylindrical cooking chamber and fully-enclosed propane burner, your holiday meal will cook up juicy, crisp and flavorful every time. Say it with me: best gift ever!

Straight Up Chess – Red Cherry Chessboard with Walnut Scoop Frame

For the nerd who wants to own game night once and for all, this wall-mountable chess-board sets the thinking man’s game in a whole new light. Make your game a true conversation piece as you battle your friends for ultimate chess supremacy. A distinctive gift for anyone bored with horizontal chess, but not quite ready for the intellectual challenge of multi-dimensional Star Trek chess.

Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 Quadricopter

For everyone who wants to own drone technology on a non-Pentagon budget, I present your new favorite holiday gift! From Amazon:

“The Parrot AR.Drone is the first quadricopter that can be controlled by a smartphone or tablet. By tilting your device, you control the direction of your AR.Drone, and by releasing it, the AR.Drone is instantly stabilized. Thanks to the AR.Drone’s autopilot feature, anyone can be an expert as the AR.Drone allows for an easy take-off and landing.”

You can even take live HD video while you’re flying, streaming it to your smartphone or tablet as if you’re in the pilot’s seat. What more could a guy ask for?

Arcade Legends 3 Upright Multi-Game Video Arcade Game Machine

If you’ve seen Wreck-It Ralph a few too many times and find your nostalgia for classic arcade games won’t subside, here’s your personal Giftvana (trademark pending). Bringing the “Golden Age” of arcade games to your own living room, this upright gaming system collects 130 pre-installed games, all at your fingertips, leaving no official reason you’ll ever need to leave the house again. It’ll cost you to bring this bad-boy home, but tell Junior he can pay for his own semester of college.  It’s worth it to have the most popular game room in the neighborhood!
