Walkie-talkies might not be the first thing that springs to mind when compiling your Christmas shopping list. But perhaps they should be!
If you are looking for the perfect gift for the kids, friends, family or even loved ones, walkie-talkies might just be what you are looking for! Walkie-talkies are a versatile gift that is perfect for keeping kids entertained, outdoor lovers, anglers, sailors, and much more.
Here are 5 of the top reasons why walkie-talkies are the perfect stocking-filler this Christmas:
1. Walkie-talkies aren’t expensive
This year we have all had to tighten our belts a little, and Christmas budgets can be stretched a little thin. Walkie-talkies are fantastic value for money, and for big families, this can be a godsend.
As an example, if you have three kids to buy for, then why not consider a triple pack of the kid-friendly Motorola T42? At less than €80 for three radios, these make the perfect stocking filler.
2. Kids adore walkie-talkies
Even in the age of the smartphone, kids are still fascinated by anything that lets them communicate over distances. Walkie-talkies are perfect for this. They are robust enough to be kid-proof, simple to operate, cheap to buy, and, best of all – They can keep kids amused for hours!
The benefits extend to the parents too! Arming yourself and your children with a set of walkie-talkies allows them to go out exploring, knowing that at the click of a button, you can call them back in for lunch.
3. Walkie-talkies are perfect for outdoor lovers
Ireland boasts some of the world’s most beautiful scenery. It is no wonder, then, that so many of us venture into the great outdoors at every opportunity. Walkie-talkies are the perfect companion to venture into the wilds with. Their versatility means that walkie-talkies are perfect for:
- Mountain bikers
Taking walkie-talkies with you on your adventures is both a valuable safety aid and perfect for coordinating groups or just staying in touch with fellow anglers, campers, etc. Walkie-talkies are also rugged enough to stand up to the rigours of the Irish climate and countryside.
The Motorola T82 Extreme is a perfect example of a great radio for outdoor lovers. It is designed to shrug off the worse of the weather, has a range of 10km, 18hr battery life, and it features an LED torch.
4. Walkie-talkies are built to last
It’s a familiar story in every household. By the end of January, half the kids’ presents are in tatters (and you wish the Christmas jumpers were, too!). This is not something that can be applied to walkie-talkies. Walkie-talkies are designed to be tough enough to withstand the best efforts of the most ham-fisted kids and adults.
For instance, the Motorola XT185 is designed and built to exacting standards and is waterproof to IP54 standards.
5. A gift for all the family
Walkie-talkies are the perfect gift for all the family. (although, in certain circumstances, it is advised to include a bottle of perfume for the sake of Christmas harmony.)
From providing hours of fun for the kids to adding an extra safety element to wild camping trips, walkie-talkies have a multitude of uses. For a gift that isn’t destined to spend the rest of the year tucked in a drawer or a dusty corner, it has to be walkie-talkies.
Walkie-talkies may not be at the top of your Christmas shopping list, but perhaps they should be. Practical, fun, safety-enhancing, and robust enough to last for years, walkie-talkies are a fantastic Christmas gift. And they don’t cost the earth!
