Tech Talker: Last Minute Gifts
Still searching for last minute holiday gifts? NBC's Liz McLaughlin has suggestions.
(NBC News) — We’re in the final stretch for holiday shopping, but there’s still time to pick up gadgets for budget-friendly stocking stuffers.

“A lot of these smart devices and even smart plugs are coming down well under the $10.00 price point even,” notes Suzanne Kantra of Techlicious.
Stocking-sized speakers are also popular this year.
JBL has new palm-portable models under $30, the Go-3 and Junior Pop for kids.
Solarbots are another option for the little ones on your list. They’re cute robots that can teach kids about solar energy, and are less than $15.
