Home theater isn't the first place you'll think of when it comes to gift ideas, but that's too bad.
Streaming-media boxes like theand are inexpensive and fun, plus they'll give you plenty to watch over the holidays. I've personally had lots of success giving universal remotes like the as a gift. Not many people want to spend $60 on a remote, but once they have one, they can't imagine going back.
These are my top overall home theater picks, ranging from speaker system to game consoles, but if I had to pick just one it would be the Roku LT. It's a solid choice for almost anyone with at least a Netflix account and it's cheap enough to buy one for a friend.
