Brian Cooley, CNET editor-at-large, offered up his "top 5" budget gifts to ABC in Chicago this morning.

1) iHome I5 iPod Clock Radio ($95-$99)--.

2) Aiptek 4500 ($99)--It's a pocket camcorder/camera/MP3 player. One of its cousins has a very interesting story to tell.

3) Mobiblu DAH-1500i ($99 - $129)--This MP3 player is just a 1- inch cube (the size of four sugar cubes) and is compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems. Just plug and play, and it comes in six colors. Just don't lose it.

4) SanDisk Cruzer Titanium ($45-70)--This USB flash drive is about the size of a pack of gum and has a biometric fingerprint reader. It's sold in 512MB and 1GB capacities.

5) "the iGuy" from Speck Products. The rubberized character helps keep your iPod safe.
