Snapfish pre-loaded framePre-loaded Digital Photo Frame

A digital photo frame, like this 8-inch model from Snapfish ($109.99), is a great holiday gift. But it's well worth the extra $30 to pre-load it with up to 100 of your own images, so it's ready to go right out of the box. Easily update images by connecting the frame to a computer and dragging and dropping images, for a total of 6400 on its 1GB of memory. The 800 x 600-pixel frame will also play AVI video files and mp3 music files. Price: $139.99 on Snapfish.com

SnapTotes.com is a simple to navigate website which lets you choose your bag by style (think tote, beach or make-up), size (small, medium, large) occasion (like mom, teacher, work) and price (under $35 to $140). You can also decide on your own strap, liner and color.
