Sonos Play:3

Editors' Choice winners are the best of the best at CNET Australia. But not everything will make for an ideal gift idea. We've looked back over some of this year's outstanding products to pick out those that have great gift potential.

Covering TVs, laptops, headphones and handhelds, we're sure you'll find something here that you want to buy for someone else ... or add to your own wish list.
