Apple and Macintosh for the kids
It's true that children are getting their hands on shiny gadgets at younger ages, but failing that, parents could buy them an Apple-embossed toy truck for $29.
If radio-controlled cars are more your thing these days, then perhaps a kid's cotton Apple T-shirt would have made a good stocking filler at only $6.50 -- certainly not breaking the bank in the same way as an iPad. The Macintosh sweatshirt would have only set you back $14.
The clothing range for big kids
The big kids could also get their hands on Apple's clothing range. If you wanted to show off your brand loyalty at the gym or loitering around the house on a lazy day, the sweatpants -- available in black, white or jade -- cost $15, whereas adult-sized Apple logo cutton T-shirts were only $7.50.
Belts or 'snap shirts,' anyone?
It wasn't just cotton T-shirts or sweatpants that Apple used to sell. You could also get your hands on a cotton belt for $5, complete with an embossed Apple logo and a cinch ring. Available in a number of colors -- dubious color mix of black-background logo and belt notwithstanding -- they would go perfectly with a "snap shirt" for both men and women.
Once manufactured by Patagonia, an outdoor clothing firm, the shirts had brass snaps instead of buttons, and were priced at $43.
