People planning their Christmas shopping may find that gadgets from ink cartridges maker HP could be ideal gifts this year.

The manufacturer has highlighted several of its printer products that it states could be a good addition to a home environment.

For those looking for a stylish device, it suggested the Envy 110 e-All-in-One printer may be useful, as it offers scanning and copying capabilities as well as being able to connect to the web to take advantage of the firm's remote printing services.

Recently the model was described by Tony Hoffman of PC Pro as an elegant design that should be able to fit comfortably into any room in the house.

Individuals who run a home office, on the other hand, may be able to benefit from an Officejet Pro e-All-in-One 8600 series.

HP stated this "delivers professional-quality colour documents at up to 50 percent lower cost per page than laser printers and includes two-sided borderless printing, as well as new inks that resist fading, water and highlighter-pen smears".
