I spent A LOT of money this Christmas on gifts for the family but this $15 microphone I bought my oldest daughter was the biggest hit. We just typed "Karaoke" and the song we wanted into our YouTube app and had a blast. Such a fun gift. You might want to consider purchasing more than one (if your family is into duets) because you need to have it fairly close to your mouth to get good sound. Try Vanilla Ice (Ice, Ice, Baby)...you'll be out of breath. Great for parties too!
