One of the nice parts about shopping for last-minute holiday gifts this year is the wealth of high-tech options available for every age, interest and budget. In case you should find yourself sprinting to find the perfect present though, it’s not always easy to choose the best pick for friends and family, however. But fear not, help is at hand: We’ve teamed up with several leading manufacturers to offer a few ideas that can save you time, effort and energy when it comes to gift-giving this season.

For starters, if you’re shopping for a home entertainment fan, check out the Samsung Shape Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. It’s a sleek system that offers an attractive, eye-catching design and wireless entertainment throughout your whole house from a variety of music sources – for example, smartphones and tablets. It offers an awesome wireless experience, letting you listen to your entire music library, radio stations and music services on-demand via Bluetooth or WiFi. Easy plug-and-play setup also makes it simple to install so you can get right to rocking your own wireless surround sound system.

If you’re a big fan of streaming music, movies and video games though, it’s important to note: Your connected experience is only as good as the weakest link in your home network. With more and more devices connecting to home wireless networks at one time, response times can slow and frustration increase. Happily, you can help the whole family turbo-charge downloads and boost streaming capabilities with the Motorola-ARRIS SURFboard SBG6782-AC Gateway. It’s a two in one modem and router that packs the latest technology and blazing speeds to allow everyone to use their gadgets happily.

With so many devices in our home entertainment centers now, however, controlling them can get somewhat complicated. So if you’re looking for a great gift for a DIYer guy that can help them control all their favorite gadgets, see the Logitech Harmony Ultimate as well. It’s a universal remote that lets you control all your devices, from TVs to Blu-ray players, Philips Hue lights and even the new Xbox One, even through cabinets and walls. You can even create activities like “watch a movie” and watch as the Harmony Ultimate powers up your TV, receiver, Blu-ray player and dims those lights.

If you’re shopping for an iPhone 5 owner, have a look at Duracell Powermat products as well, which help increase battery life so you’re never caught without power. Case in point: The Powerset II, the ultimate charging system for the iPhone 5. It includes an Access Case that offers wireless charging through snap-on, snap-off batteries that are easily installed and more than double your mobile device’s battery life. It also includes a two-position mat so you can wirelessly charge two devices simultaneously. The Powerset II is on-sale through Christmas at AT&T Stores and DuracellPowermat.com as well – you can save $30, as the price has been reduced to just $99.

Of course, if you find yourself struggling to come up with ideas, be sure to swing by your local neighborhood RadioShack as well. They’ve got tech experts on-hand who can help you pick from a wide range of last-minute tech gifts like the AUVIO Folding Headphones with Mic, among many great choices for the holidays. You might also consider grabbing a RadioShack gift card as well, as techies can always have fun picking out their favorite devices. There’s even a Holiday Cash promotion running where you can get $10 back off on a $5 purchase.

As you can see, there’s no shortage of great last-minute holiday gift options to be had, so you’ll never have a problem finding something to quickly stash in your bag as you head out to visit friends and loved ones, or under the tree. Happy holidays!
