Wish I could post pictures. The cartoonish one of the blonde yelling "BUY ALL THE THINGS!" comes to mind.
That said, why bother with something like this? Here's their actual gift guide: "Buy all of our overpriced, overhyped, underwhelming, boring stuff, as it's marginally better than what we offered 2 years ago, which was marginal improvements and expanded applications of what we had 3 years prior. Happy appledays!"

I hate Apple, but the only things I like are their MacBook Pros... Still expensive no matter what you get.

An iPad mini is on my Xmas list for my kid, other than that I'm good.

I think Apple, despite their greedy and evil plan to make everyone pay for their iStuff, make adequate products for people who are not interested in learning how to tweak their devices and/or like to brag, these devices are like a plug & play USB device, in this case would be pay & play device.
It's nice to see how my mom, although not tech savy, uses my iPad (which was a gift btw, I would never buy an iDevice for myself) to play, watch youtube videos, surf the web and stuff like that with ease on the first try.
The learning curve would've been a little more steep with an Android device, I'm not saying Android aint easy to use, It's awesome (I own a GS2) and it has more than I could ask for, but people who are not interested in learning the tweaks and workarounds of the Os, is not that appealing to own such devices.
Nevertheless, every device and their respective OS are unique in their way, and people choose these depending on their taste.
Personally, I would not buy an iDevice for myself, but I would buy one for my beloved ones.
