We all love buying tech toys for ourselves, but it can be even more fun to pick out the perfect device for a friend or family member, then watch their eyes light up when they open the package.
Part 1 of our holiday gift guide focuses on high-end gear -- gadgets that cost $150 or more. We present sleek smartwatches, a top-quality camera that uses an iPhone's display as a viewfinder, a Bluetooth speaker that actually levitates, a Chromebook that runs Android apps, and a whole lot more. There's even a cozy winter jacket made especially for gadget lovers.
We've included prices and shopping links, but be aware that prices often fluctuate, especially during the holiday shopping season. As always, be careful of false deals and scams; you know what they say about deals that sound too good to be true.
In the coming weeks we'll be rolling out two more slideshows with midrange and low-priced tech gifts. And we've also got a video highlighting some of this year's coolest wearables. You'll find all that at our main holiday gift guide page.
Meanwhile, enjoy our selection of $150-and-over gift ideas.
