Video: High-tech holiday gift ideas

'Tis the season to buy gadgets for loved ones — or, hey, why not yourself, too? — and this year there's no shortage of amazing tech toys to suit varying tastes and budgets.

In this informal video I shot for ToroMagazine.com, I show some of my favourite gadgets of 2012, including tablets (iPad mini, Microsoft Surface and Samsung's latest Android slate), music gadgets (headphones and wireless speaker systems), a Canon dSLR, and more:

I also went to NYC last week to check out Sony's mammoth 4K TV -- boasting a resolution that's four times greater than a regular 1080p HDTV -- but be sure to bring your wallet as it'll set you back $25,000 if you want to bring this puppy home (er, check to make sure you have room for it). Really, you have to see the quality of this thing at your local Sony store as it's ridiculous.

In this video, I also look at other high-tech toys including Wi-Fi-enabled Blu-ray players -- to turn a regular TV into a "smart" one -- as well as Mattel's Yippits toys for young girls.

Yahoo! readers, what tech gifts are you hoping to score over the holidays?
