Christmas gift ideas: top Christmas gifts for 2014

If you managed to get the big gifts out of the way and want something else to add to the pile, our holiday gift guide also includes a grab bag of sorts for you to sift through and maybe find a few stocking stuffers (albeit they are somewhat pricey, so they could actually be a bigger gift).

Or perhaps you'll find a few accessories and peripherals for the tech and gamer people in your life who already have it all.

Fitbit Flex - $130

Fitbit Flex

The Fitbit Flex combines the company's honed pedometer technology with a convenient wristband that, while not the most stylish of accessories, oozes ruggedness like no other tracker.

An adjustable clasp keeps things secure, while a black strip acts as a simple progress display that's activated with a double-tap and powered by a removable plastic sensor housed inside a rubber pouch.

Battery life is around five days, and although the five LED lights helpfully indicate the number of steps taken in a day, it's the iOS and Android apps that offer a more detailed and extended picture of your activity.

GoPro HD Hero3+ Black Edition - $529

GoPro HD Hero3 Black Edition

Truly the king of action cameras, the GoPro Hero3+ provides jaw-dropping image quality in both light and dark scenes. It's really easy to use and comes with housing that waterproofs it to 60 metres, making it perfect for diving.

There's also a Wi-Fi remote so you can control it from afar, and an app so you can use your smartphone to preview your footage.

Creative Sound Blaster EVO Zx - $279.95

Creative Sound Blaster EVO Zx

Though the Creative Sound Blaster EVO Zx headset is for the PC, we're sure you know at least one PC gamer who would appreciate new headphones, especially since they get better every year.

Creative Sound Blaster is a known presence in computer audio and has been making headphones for a while now. They aren't always perfect, but you'll get decent sound quality from the EVO Zx.

If this pair isn't up to your standards, or if you don't feel like spending $250 bucks, there are plenty of other gaming headset options out there to choose from.

Bose QuietComfort 20i - $399

Bose QuietComfort 20i

Bose QuietComfort 20i (with the "i" standing for the Apple version) in-ear headphones are definitely a must for the audiophile in your life, if you have $400 to spend.

But heart attack inducing price aside, you really get what you pay for - amazing noise canceling tech and incredible sound added to the fact that the QuietComfort 20i is also really quite comfortable.

There's also the neat "Aware Mode" feature which is designed to help you be able to hear important things that the noise canceling may drown out.

Sonos Play:1 - $299

Sonos Play:1 review

The Sonos Play:1 at $299, impresses with what it offers for its size, but perhaps more importantly, we're impressed with what it offers for the price. And for the holiday season, it'll sure be a welcome addition to households.

There's no Bluetooth to be found on the Play:1 and no battery either. This is totally about high quality streaming around the house that's only limited by your Wi-Fi capabilities. Well, that and the location of your power sockets.
