WOODBURY - Looking for the perfect gift for your gadget lover? News 12’s Andrew Ehinger has your guide to this season’s hottest tech toys.

If you want to get the most out of your HDTV and digital devices, a tiny, but powerful tool is the Google Chromecast. It plugs right into your TV’s HDMI port and streams content from your computer, tablet or smartphone right to your television. Many apps such as Hulu and Netflix work great on Chromecast, which is why it’s number 10 on Ehinger’s list. It costs $35.

Have slippery fingers when it comes to your smartphone? Coming in at number nine on the list is something that will help with that, LifeProof’s phone waterproof cases. The company has a case that works perfectly with the new iPhone 5S’ fingerprint scanner too. Cases start around $80.

Love listening to music, but hate those pesky wires on headphones? SOL Republic offers Tracks Air headphones, which are wireless, Bluetooth-enabled. They can even be used to answer phone calls once synched up. The Tracks Air run about $200.
