Let's start with some cheap, can't-miss gifts. The travel-friendly Logitech X100 is one of the better micro wireless speakers, featuring decent sound for its size, an attractive design, and speakerphone capabilities. It's been discontinued by Logitech, but you can still find them for as little as AU$25.
The ultra-affordable Google Chromecast Audio is one of the best music-streaming devices you can buy -- especially for Android users. It works with anything with an "aux in" port, and you can buy more than one for multi-room audio, too.
The new NES Classic Edition (aka NES Classic Mini) is an official Nintendo product that crams 30 of the company's most beloved games into a miniature version of the hit '80s game system. It fits in the palm of your hand, and costs just AU$100.
The most affordable iPhone is also the smallest model (far right): the iPhone SE. It basically stuffs most of the features and components of 2015's iPhone 6S into the familiar body of the iPhone 5. It's great for those who think today's phones are just too large -- but make sure you buy the step-up 64GB version, not the entry-level 16GB model.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 phones were recalled because of a design flaw that results in an usually large number of fires. But there have been no such issues with the tried-and-true S7 Edge, which has a top-notch camera and a unique wraparound screen.
With the Pixel, Google stepped up to bat, called its shot, and knocked it out of the park. It's the first phone with Google Assistant built-in, and it has an awesome camera, too. And its pure Android operating system means you'll get new software updates the minute they're available -- not months later, as with other Android phones.
Want to give the ultimate iPhone? Look no further than the iPhone 7 Plus. It uses its dual rear cameras to deliver true 2x optical zoom and a stunning portrait mode that focuses on the foreground subject while blurring the background.
Buying for a budding photographer who's ready to move beyond the cameraphone? The Lumix ZS100 delivers better photos -- and zoom -- than a phone, and it supports 4K video for the sharpest capture possible.
GoPro also launched its first drone, the Karma. It's small enough to fit into a backpack, comes with a dedicated controller and can be purchased bundled with or without a Hero5 or Hero5 Session camera.
On the other hand, if your gift recipient needs full waterproofing and GPS -- and they own an iPhone -- the new Apple Watch is ideal. And with its latest software update, the battery life is far better, too.
All that talk of running has us returning to the living room. And you won't find a better all-around sound bar for under the TV than the LG SH7B. Plenty of wireless streaming-audio options seal the deal.
With a 21.5-inch touchscreen and grocery-tracking fridge cams built-into the door, Samsung's flagship smart fridge is one of the coolest (and smartest) ever made. The gorgeous design doesn't hurt, either.
Sony's new, slimmed-down version of its PS4 game console has all of the same solid features -- streaming video, a Blu-ray player and great games. And now it comes with Uncharted 4, one of the best PlayStation exclusives of all.
If you're looking for ultimate artistic flexibility, however, Microsoft's Surface Studio is where it's at. Available in limited quantities, this gorgeous Windows 10 beast includes a reclining 28-inch touchscreen.
From giant desktops to mini ones: the Acer Revo One crams a full-on Windows PC into a body that's barely larger than a coffee mug. And unlike a Mac Mini, you can upgrade the hard drive and memory, too.
If you want a powerful laptop with the flexibility of a tablet, consider Microsoft's newest Surface Book model. The screen detaches from the keyboard base, which adds more battery life and graphics power when it's attached.
Razer's second-gen Blade Stealth is an affordable ultralight Windows laptop with a muscular Core i7 chip. Plug it into the Razer Core docking station (sold separately), and it becomes a full-on desktop gaming PC, too.
The multi-platform Astro A50 headphones are top-tier in terms of performance and comfort. At AU$465, you'll need to splurge a little, but the modular customization options and wireless charging means Astros are popular for a reason.
Apple's iPad set the bar for tablets when it was first introduced in 2010. Five years later, the 9.7-inch iPad Pro pretty much perfects the concept. Add Apple's Pencil (shown) to turn it into a high-tech sketchpad.
LG's high-end 2016 OLED TVs deliver the best picture quality of any TV we've ever reviewed, and the B6 is the best value of the bunch. They're expensive, but a new price cut gets you the 65-inch model for the lowest price we've seen yet.
