Holiday Gift Giving Made Easy: NIKON COOLPIX S01 {#Giveaway}

City Mom's Holiday Gift Giving Made Easy

They way I see it there are seven categories of those we give gifts to over the holiday season:

  1. The Person Who Has Everything
    • This is the hardest person to buy for because well, they already have everything!
  2. Children
    • Pretty easy to buy for; they have their list made in June, all you have to do is get the items, wrap them and sit back and relax.
  3. The Hobbyist
    • These people are so easy to buy for; grab an item in your price range that falls under their hobby category and you’re golden.
  4. The “Appreciatist”
    • I know this isn’t a real word, but the “appreciatist” is someone on your list that you want to send a gift of thanks to; for example your child’s teacher, your boss etc.
  5. The Spouse/Friend/Sibling
    • This one is a breeze. You interact with them on a daily basis and you know all their likes and dislikes, wants and needs.
  6. Your Parents
    • This one can be tricky and they can also fall into many of the other categories. You either know exactly what to get them or you have no clue.
  7. The Question Mark
    • This is a catchall category. Maybe it’s a Secret Santa at work or a gift donation or anyone that doesn’t fit into the above six categories.



Enter the Nikon COOLPIX S01 from Henry’s; this tiny gem will satisfy any person on your list this holiday season.


The Person Who Has Everything will appreciate this gift because they don’t already have it; it just came into the market in time for the holidays.

It’s perfect for the tiny hands of Children because it measures in at 2.1 inches in height, 3.1 inches in width and less than 1 inch deep. And with a user-friendly touch screen LCD monitor they’ll have no problem using it.

And if The Hobbyist in your life is a photography nut then this is a no-brainer, but if their hobby doesn’t have anything to do with photography this is still the perfect gift. The COOLPIX S01 detects what you’re shooting and automatically selects the best mode for you making anyone using it a skilled photographer.

The “Appreciatist” could fall into any other category as well, but if you’re looking for an appropriate gift that guarantees enjoyment why not gather your coworkers or the parents of you child’s classmates and go in on this fun gift together? With this camera sitting at the lower end of digital camera price ranges, it will be possible with just a few joiners.

Whether or not your Spouse/Friend/Sibling has the latest Smartphone with a camera/video included, the COOLPIX S01 is still a good addition to their lineup of technology.

For example, the new iPhone 5 has an 8 megapixel (MP) sensor while the COOLPIX S01 has a 10.1 MP sensor. And the COOLPIX is smaller so it’s much more convenient to throw in your pocket and grab it to snap a quick photo.

If Your Parents are the type of people who have kept up with technology then they’re obviously already familiar with technology like digital cameras and Smartphones. If they haven’t kept up and don’t own the latest iPhone or something similar then this is the perfect gift for them.

The COOLPIX S01 is compact, straight forward and user-friendly; three important qualities to individuals who can get easily overwhelmed with technology. With absolutely no buttons, all functions of this camera are done through the touch-screen. It also comes with a programmed auto exposure (shutter speed and ND filter selection) and a flexible program with motion detection to make it super easy to take excellent photos without having to learn first.

And since almost everyone loves taking pictures and videos to capture special moments this makes a great gift for that Question Mark person on your list.

There are so many cool features that this camera has that I couldn’t possibly include them all so check out the video from Henry’s TV that shares a quick but thorough description of the Nikon COOLPIX S01.
