The holidays are right around the corner and that means you might be putting together a shopping list. News 12's gadget guru Andrew Ehinger has some high-tech suggestions.

OnePlus

Smartphones are the must-have piece of tech now a days - but not everyone wants to drop $1,000 or more for a top of the line device. And there are some less expensive options so you don't have to settle.
OnePlus is a little known smartphone maker, but its Model 8 line of smartphones really turns heads. For $600 the 5G Android phone has a top of the line camera, is super sleek, has warp fast charging, plus a fingerprint reader under the high res screen. It even has a Zen Mode that with a single touch lets you unplug while still staying in touch.

Twinkly

Bringing your holiday light game into the 21st century is easy with Twinkly. The high tech lights are controlled by a smartphone app, after your camera "sees" where the lights are. Then you can easily animate the designs on a tree or on anything for an eye popping display.

Victrola

Vinyl is making a comeback - and Victrola has some modern day inexpensive record players that even "Nipper" the dog would love. Victrola's Canvas portable record player is made for younger listeners, while the Eastwood has audiophiles in mind. Both have built-in speakers and Bluetooth if you want to stream the music to or from the speakers.
