From Miniature Wearable Drones to Saucer-Launching Toys

The surging market in this realm has left drone gifts as a significant option for individuals looking to purchase a tech-related present for their loved ones this holiday season.

The 'nixie' is a flying camera that, when not in use, can be worn on the wrist in the form of a bracelet. The lightweight drone can take HD photos and videos when it is connected to a smartphone. The device has a variety of settings that include "boomerang, panorama, follow me and hover."

For people with children that they think are a little bit too young for real drones, the 'Flying Saucer Shooter' toy exists. The toy comes in the form of a plastic gun and a wheel that is wound up on top of it, which is then shot in the air much like a drone would be -- but only with manual power.
