[MUSIC] Emojis just got a musical makeover. These $20 Jamoji Bluetooth speaker let you rock out to your favorite tunes as lights flash in time to the beat. You get six hours of listening time. For the living room, the $30 Roku Express makes any TV smart. This $30 streaming box lets you watch services like Netflix and Hulu. It does most of what the expensive Roku streaming sticks can do, but doesn't have a voice remote, or four case support. [SOUND] Where does Santa Santa Claus live? Santa Claus lives in the North Pole. Talk to your tablet with the $49 Amazon Fire 7. Voice assistant Alexa lets you ask questions or control smart devices around the home. The seven inch screen is big enough for watching movies or reading books and it has around nine hours of battery life. You can also put your favorite voice assistant in more places with these small, $49 smart speakers. The Google Home Mini and the Amazon Echo Dot work the same as the larger speakers, so you can do things like set reminders, or shop with your voice. If you're choosing between the two, the Echo Dot has an audio jack to connect to your existing speakers, while the Home Mini has a touch panel. If your phone doesn't come with a headphone jack, cut the cord completely with a $45 ifrog's impulse duo headphones. They connect via bluetooth to your phone, and have a remote with a magnetic clip to attach to clothes. For more tech gift ideas, visit the cnet holiday buyer's guide at cnet.com.
