Good news for holiday shoppers: Not every cool tech item on the wish list has to break the bank. In fact, there are plenty of gifts that come in under $100.

This year, it’s about digital music, video games and staying connected. Here are a few items that are a great value but don’t skimp on the cool factor:

Crosley 4-In-1 Music System: Across the board, the Crosley systems offer a classic style with classic functionality. Vinyl is coming back in a big way, and this particular system plays those records along with an AM/FM radio, CDs and even…cassette tapes. It also has speakers built right into the unit.

Sony Noise-Canceling Headphones: Just about everyone has an iPod these days, but the earbuds that come with the iPod can become downright uncomfortable. You can upgrade the experience with a pair of overear headphones from Sony. The built-in noise-canceling feature is also great for drowning out chatty passengers on flights as well as snoring spouses.

“Shaun White Snowboarding” Action sports star Shaun White is headlining one of the biggest video games of this year on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii. If you are unable to hit the slopes this winter, this game will serve as a realistic substitute. Target has an exclusive version of the game that has a ton of extra features, including an entire Target-exclusive mountain to ride.

Peek Wireless E-mail Device: If you want access to your e-mail on the go without complications or a high price, the new Peek Wireless E-mail Device might be something to consider. It’s available exclusively at Target stores and uses T-Mobile’s data plan. It’s so easy to set up and use, even novice e-mailers can make sure they’ll get your wish list. – Courtesy of NAPS.
