2014 Vizio Optic Holiday Gift Guide

According to behavioral researchers, the best gift you can give someone is a gift card, but let’s face it, not many people dream of eagerly tearing the wrapping paper from an envelope, however fabulous it may be!

That said, we know that shopping for others can sometimes be really difficult, so our Vizio Optic Elves decided to put together a small list of our favorite gift-able frames! There are recommendations that work for men, women, and we’ve even included treats that fit perfectly in anyone’s stocking.
