I'm a shopping editor and this digital photo frame is at the top of my wish list -- and it's on sale at Walmart

I'm a shopping editor and this digital photo frame is at the top of my wish list -- and it's on sale at Walmart

In a world of tech-savvy gifting, it doesn't have to be all Apple Watches and Ring Doorbells. There are plenty of other high-tech gadgets that make life more fun and interesting. They also make great gifts for loved ones, like digital picture frames. This Mason by Aura digital frame is one of our tech editor's top picks for digital frames, and today, it's on sale at Walmart.

 This 9-inch Wi-Fi-enable digital picture frame will let you easily share photos from your phone to display. With free unlimited storage, you won't need to worry about it filling up or having to purchase additional space.

$199 at Walmart

This frame is also at the top of my wishlist, so I've alerted all my loved ones already. These much-improved frames have come a long way from a USB Flash Drive loaded with your family photos. The Mason by Aura frame is incredibly easy to use. All you need to do is download the app on your phone and connect the frame to your Wifi. The frame will then be able to receive photos from anywhere. On your family vacation at the beach? Sitting on the sideline of your grandkid's soccer game? No problem, you can upload it right then and there and enjoy it when you get home. Photos don't have to stay stuck in your photo app any longer.

Why is it a good deal?

It's currently $20 off, dropping the price to $149, which may still seem like a hefty price tag for photos, but the access to display an entire photo library from the convenience of an app on your phone is pretty great. This Aura frame comes with unlimited storage, so you can invite your whole family to share their photos as well. It is a great way to keep families up-to-date with the latest and greatest happenings and makes for a fun piece of home decor. That's why it's on the top of my wishlist this year and as a shopping editor who investigates hundreds of products, my list isn't made hastily.

Why do I need it?

Digital photo frames are not totally new gadgets; there have been different, less high-tech versions for years. In fact, you may have had one years ago that had a much clunkier user experience and lower-quality photos. But that's not the case any longer. The high-quality picture and ease of use make this an item perfect for almost anyone on your list, including yourself. The Mason version above is a nice stone grey color, but there are tons of other frame designs to choose from. We also love the Carver matte version, which is also on sale today if that is more your style.

You may not think you need it, but you won't be disappointed once you have it. It will enable you to relive some of your favorite memories, often stuck on your phone, right from the comforts of your own home. The quality of the photos makes it feel like an actual photo is in the frame, and the ability to showcase different photos right from the touch of a button on your phone is the tech-savvy gift
