1) You can go to the mall and wade through the literal sea of people who are in the same figurative boat as you are.
2) You can go online and get your gifts delivered within a day… made even more convenient (and cheaper) if you have Amazon Prime shipping.

If batteries are the gift of choice for experienced flyers, extra propellers are the gift to get new drone operators. Everyone breaks a few props during their first flights with a new drone and, while a lot of drones come with extra props, you would be surprised (or not) how fast they can disappear.
Plus, they make great stocking stuffers.
Learning to Fly
Perhaps you know someone who has talked about getting a drone but hasn’t committed yet. Or maybe you think someone might like a drone but doesn’t know where to start.
In these cases, a practice model could be a great gift. They aren’t true drones per se, more like remote control helicopters, but they are excellent for learning the physics of flying and you won’t have to register them with the FAA!
And finally, 3D Robotics launched a holiday sale this weekend! If you use promo code THX3DR20 at checkout, you get 20% off your entire order, which includes their flagship drone the Solo. The code is valid through January 1, so if you don’t get the drone you want on Christmas, you could get it on the cheap through next week!
