If you're stuck on what to get someone for the holidays, it's hard to go wrong with a gadget.
This holiday season, 68 percent of all shoppers — some 170 million people — are expected to buy a tech gift for a friend or loved one, according to the Consumer Electronics Association. (And that's not counting the people who will buy one for themselves.) That's the highest-ever interest in consumer tech, and there's a whole lot to choose from. With new fields like virtual reality capturing people's imagination and old standbys like big-screen TVs always a hot ticket, it can get confusing for anyone. If you're looking for a perfect tech gift for a friend or loved one, here are a few can't-miss suggestions.
