....Also on the electronics front, keep in mind that the new iPod Nanos are thinner in design, have longer battery life, a brighter display and come in a variety of colors, including pink, red, lime green, and blue, says MyBargain's shopping expert Karen Hoxmeier."On the Apple Website they are $199 with free shipping and laser engraving is included at no extra charge," she says.

She also expects Sony Play Stations to be big sellers as well as Nintendo's long awaited new game console, Wii. Also, kids should be fond of LeapFrog interactive learning systems, while the Lego Star Wars game is shaping up to be a big hit. That's a game for the whole family and it works on most console systems.

Beyond electronics, there should be some other hot items this shopping season. Hoxmeier recommends the Totally 80s Trivial Pursuit edition, which is especially fun for former Gen Xers wanting to relive their youth.
