(Family Features) Everyone loves finding the latest technology under the wrapping paper, whether it's a gadget to help you stay connected with family or enjoy your favorite entertainment.

From a new tablet for grandma to headphones for dad, everyone has at least one cool gadget on their wish list this season that can be found at your neighborhood RadioShack. With so many products from which to choose, knowing the best picks for the loved ones on your list can be a difficult task.

Here are some popular tech gift ideas to please everyone on your list this holiday:

For the kids

What's better than an electronic gadget where you can play and explore new worlds? Boys and girls alike will love playing with kid-friendly tablets made especially for them. With games that educate and engage in new, creative ways, they won't even know they're learning - a gift for parents, as well. Other great gadget gift ideas for children include radio controlled cars and helicopters, DIY toy kits and video games.

For the teens

For social media, music downloads and so much more, the one gift every teen looks forward to opening this holiday is a smartphone. The new Samsung Galaxy S4 provides a large screen, top of the line camera capabilities and all the necessary features to keep your teen connected. Other great gift ideas for

teens include video gaming systems, mp3 players and cool cases for smartphones.

For the fitness fan

Look no further than the latest digital fitness product for a gift to inspire and encourage your favorite athlete. From heart rate monitors to activity trackers to track steps taken and calories burned, these right-sized devices are sure to please. Other great ideas for athletes include sweat-proof headphones and new mp3 players to jam to while working out.

For the music guru

For the man in your life with music in his heart, think of a special gift that combines the love of entertainment with high quality performance. A set of quality headphones, such as the Beats by Dr. Dre Studio Over-Ear Headphones, truly delivers great sound. Other options for the men on your list include indoor-outdoor speaker sets, streaming media players and satellite radio systems.

For those who need extra help with gift giving, stop by your local RadioShack. Building on its heritage as a DIY destination and expert resource for tech know-how, RadioShack has created holiday Idea Centers in its stores.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
