NORFOLK, Va. - With Black Friday just a few weeks away, it's time to start thinking about holiday shopping.

If you're trying to think of some ideas for the tech lover in your life, Tech Lifestyle Expert Carley Knobloch has some ideas.

For a stocking stuffer, she suggests Beats Flex.

The wireless headphones cost about $50. Virtual reality is expected to be popular again this year.

One option is the Oculus Quest Two. It's Facebook's newest virtual reality headset.

"It's wireless. It's super fast, high-resolution games, plus at $299 it's the most affordable," said Knobloch.

For gamers, the Nintendo Switch is still popular. It can go from a home gaming system to a portable device. And since we've all had to spend so much time apart this year, Portal from Facebook could be a good way to stay connected.

"The hands-free video calling really lets you feel like you're hanging out, even if you can't be together, and the way that the camera keeps you in frame while you're on a call, it's sort of like having your own personal camera man," said Knobloch.

Whatever you decide to buy this year, get it early. Shipping is expected to take longer than usual since so many people are ordering online.
