Like sands through the hour glass, so are the shopping days left until Christmas and Chanukah dwindling. So, to wit, here goes my top gadget gifts that you might want to consider for under the tree, under the bush or in the stocking.

Some of these aren't brand new, and some are not necessarily revolutionary, but all have crossed my desk over the last several weeks, and these are the ones that caught my eye, and are sure to bring a smile to the faces of those who receive them. Are these gift ideas pricey? Yes. I realize that. But certainly in the current economic climate, you're going to want to spend money on something of value, something that matters, something that makes a statement and will last until the holiday shopping season next year, or even the year after. You can't go wrong with any of these. And the smiles you get will be a nice return on your investment.

So, in no particular order, here goes and let the shopping begin.

Happiest of holidays!
