3-in-1 Laptop Accessories


Have a Macbook user in the family? Gift this 3-in-1 laptop accessory bundle under $30 which includes a screen protector, keyboard cover and a cool case. The very neat thing about this Mac accessory is the variety of colours its available in. Just make sure you pick the right size otherwise it won’t fit. iBenzer offers 15 colour combinations for 6 models of Apple Mac.

Lego Batman Alarm Clock

Kids love batman, if not spiderman – my personal favourite is Flash, but imagine waking up to the face of your superhero (should be your mom or dad, but anyway) – set up a family or friend with this Lego Batman figure Alarm clock. The clock features a digital LCD to display time, has alarm and snooze. The figure moves its arms and legs but not when alarm is going off, no! the kid just gotto move ’em themselves. Under $30 budget, this alarm clock should be a great tech gift for any kid; boy or girl.

Boogie Board Writing Tablet

For the tech lover who has a taste for quirky gifts, set them up with the Boogie Board Writing Tablet. Measured just under 9″ x 11″, this fun tablet comes with a Stylus, Stylus Clip, Attachable Magnets and User Guide so you can start scribbling right away. To erase the writing, simply press the circular button on top. The tablet screen is a pressure-sensitive LCD surface and writes in the classic thick white lines of chalk, so really you don’t need the Stylus to write, simply use your fingers or any other instrument. It’s ideal for hanging in the kitchen or the living room, and it’s at an ideal price of $17 these days. Convinced, now? Because this is an excellent (read useful) gift idea.

Tipsy LED

This perfect light not only stands on its own but doesn’t fall off easily either; making it a perfect gift for your elderly relatives whom you don’t want to take a fumble at night. Just tap it to turn on the light and tap again to turn it off. The Aqua coloured Tipsy (aka Light Blue on Amazon) comes with an auto-shut functionality which essentially means that after 5-6 minutes, it turns off automatically.

It is also very easy to setup and can be used to create a virtual hotspot for sharing internet connection with the built in SoftAP feature.

Smartphone Gloves

With winter fast approaching, we all wanting to bundle up and stay warm, but surely we don’t want to sacrifice using our cell phones now do we? Smartphone gloves are designed to be used with smartphones, so you don’t have to worry about messing up text messages or missing out on playing your mobile games.
