Top tech gift ideas for the holidays

Gadgets come in all shapes and sizes and the engineers at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute say they make great gifts.

"For the friend or relative who's looking for a camera, we have great options whether you're looking for an SLR or a point and shoot," said Rachel Rothman of the Good Housekeeping Research Institute.

On the top of the gift list is the Canon Rebel T1I. Testers said it takes great photos quickly. The Sony DSCWXI is a good budget pick.

"For displaying the photos we have two great picks for you. The Kodak 7 inch has a really easy interface and you're able to set up everything on the computer and even send photographs from the computer right to the device. There's also the Insignia 8 inch. It has a really crisp display and an intuitive operation," said Rothman.

Tea lovers might enjoy the Chef's Choice Smart Kettle. You're able to set it at any temperature for the perfect brew every time.
