Here are a few holiday ideas from Epson to make your gift-giving hassle-free:
Holiday Idea #1: Projecting Mega Memories
This holiday season set all of the content on your phone free by sharing it on a big screen indoors or out with the MegaPlex MG-50 ($699.99) combo projector.  Equipped with a high-quality projector, stereo speakers and a built-in dock for iPod®, iPhone® and iPad®, the MegaPlex makes it easy to project baby’s first steps, family photo memories and even your favorite videos on a big wall, making for an unforgettable holiday occasion and “mega” memories that will last a lifetime. Catering to the new digital lifestyle, the MegaPlex is changing the way movies, gaming, slideshows, presentations, music, and more are shared – whether inside for a movie-like setting or even outdoors! 
Holiday Idea #2: Printing Perfect Pictures
Nothing captures the moment like a photo in hand, and the Epson Artisan 730 ($199.99) all-in-one ensures holiday photos are ready for sharing, gift-giving and more – from ornaments to greeting cards to personalized photo calendars and CDs/DVDs.  In addition, holiday DIYers can print, scan and access memory card slots from any room in the house with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ n wireless networking1 and built-in Ethernet networking.  And with Epson Connect2, a new portfolio of cloud and mobile services, even workaholics and users on-the-go can print documents and photos directly from any mobile device or tablet.
Holiday Idea #3: Holiday Labeling Frenzy
A little creativity and organization can go a long way for making it a frenzy-free holiday. The Epson LabelWorks  LW-300 ($39.99) portable label printer is designed to help busy families stay organized and stress-free with extraordinary, professional looking labels for just about every holiday need. With a range of symbols, frames and fonts, as well as dozens of tapes in a variety of styles and colors, hearing “which box has the lights?” will be a thing of the past. And, the LabelWorks LW-300 works with dozens of tapes in a variety of traditional and specialty colors and textures – even fluorescent, pearlized, iron-on, reflective, and glow-in-the-dark – for almost limitless holiday creativity.
