Electronics: Let’s face it – playing Santa can be a challenge. All too often, attempts at merry making prompt the dreaded, last minute mall crawl of desperation that usually results in gifts that are, shall we say, underwhelming at best.
To help luxe-lifers gift with ease and confidence this year, here are a few of this season’s gotta-get gadgets sure to keep the recipient appreciative all year through – all available at industry leading

The Art of the Gift
Imagine state-of-the-art technology that, at the touch of a button, transforms a wall-mounted plasma TV into a work of art. ArtScreen makes that a reality. Inside a beautiful hardwood frame, the artwork of your choice ascends or descends with the touch of a remote control. When the screen or television is not in use, the artistic image is displayed. When the artwork is retracted, the video display becomes visible for viewing. ($2,595 to $4,395)

Not Your Grandfather’s Remote
Designed with brushed chrome and charcoal accents, a 64k color LCD display and a low-profile recharging station, the Logitech® Harmony® 880 Advanced Universal Remote Control provides simple control of your entire audio-video system with just one button. This state-of-the-art device features a comfort grip shape and a centered directional pad to fit easily in the hand and naturally guide fingers to the most frequently used controls. ($216)

Multi-Gadget Charging for Road Warriors
From cell phones to iPods to handheld GPS systems, gadgets reign supreme in many households. But, most need to be charged to remain functional. For those with so many gadgets to charge but so little time, multi-device chargers such as The Power Station Traveler, which can charge up to 3 small portable devices simultaneously, will allow the recipient to tote an array of fully functional electronics with ease. ($32.99)

Mug with a Plug
For those indelibly on the go, this 16-ounce Dual Auto/USB Heated Mug is a necessity. Simply plug the heater’s power cord into your computer’s USB port or into your car’s 12V DC power outlet to keep a beverage warm throughout the day. Stylish and durable stainless steel construction provides effective insulation, while the protective thermostat control maintains a safe temperature for the mug’s contents. ($39.36)
