We had a very special post showcasing the best tech gifts for under $30, and we think there should be another one for goodies under $60. Hence, this gift ideas’ list is dedicated to cool tech gadgets but with further savings. No sense in wasting time (and precious space), so let’s get started!
1 VuPoint Portable Scanner
For workaholics on the go, set them up with the VuPoint Portable Scanner. This awesome little device will scan any document (checks, receipts, etc.) and convert it into a PDF. It’s great for staying organised and keeping thorough records. For $49, the dedicated worker is sure to love this gift.
2 Fingerprint Lock
For the security freak in your family, set them up with a Fingerprint Lock. With their finger being in charge of locking and unlocking, you won’t have to worry about them being locked out. For those who love keeping their things safe, a budget lock is a great tech gift idea especially when its under $60 bracket.
3 Cambridge SoundWorks
Perfect for indoor and outdoor activity, Cambridge SoundWorks can stream music from internet radio services. This awesome portable speaker is light weight with a high capacity of recharge giving you almost 7 hours of playtime. Take it with you on a hiking trip or a fishing expedition, this device is splashproof and dustproof, which is perfect for the beach, car, and boat rides also. Although not for submerging under water, this Bluetooth speaker can hold its ground and connect within seconds to all devices supporting Bluetooth, and if the device doesn’t have that, then Cambridge comes with an AUX-in jack. Embedded with a mic to support hands-free calls, this is no doubt one fantastic piece of music accessory, all under $60
4 Bluetooth Backlit Keyboard
This Bluetooth keyboard is perfect for the worker on the go; not only is the keyboard portable, but it comes with a case that you can attach your tablet to and since this portable device has backlit feature, you can also work at night! So let’s count the plus points on this keyboard; portable, case included, Bluetooth, backlit and… universal! 5 features for under $60 is a great bargain! Just make sure you get the right size because this bundle offers different sizes depending on the screen size of your tablet device.
5 HyperX Cloud Stinger
For the gamers in your family, set them up with the HyperX Cloud Stinger. It is an affordably priced headset with premium sound. This headset is built for comfort. It looks excellent, but the plastic is not of the best quality. That is understandable, considering the price. Just don’t drop it too often. The gamer in your family should love this headset.
6 RAVPower 3-Port Power Bank
We all love our cell phones but hate it when they die on us. For the big battery consumers in your family, set them up with the RAVPower 3-Port power bank. When their battery runs low, they simply plug the device into this portable power bank, and they will get a full charge in about twenty minutes. That kind of convenience is definitely worth the mild price tag. Also, note that this device comes with a ‘mind-boggling capacity of 26800 mAh’ which charges tablets including iOS devices and can take on 3 devices at one time. The life meter is also a convenient feature which keeps you up to speed regarding the remaining battery life of this device.
7 SanDisk 256GB Drive
If you are looking to gift someone a flash drive with an edge, look no further than SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0. Why? Well firstly, I own one, and it makes my life easier to transfer stuff from my laptop to my Android device. Second, it supports USB 3.0 which means fast transfers, and third, it’s 256GB in a super compact size. To use, simply toggle the knob to one end to open the micro-USB connector and switch it back for USB 3.0 connector. This one-inch gizmo is lightweight and compatible with all devices supporting micro-USB and USB connector (so yes you can use with USB 2.0 ports as well). For a small price, this is by far the most useful tech gift you can get under $60 budget.
8 Logitech Wireless Keyboard/Mouse
Logitech is the best brand for computer accessories, so why not gift a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse combo especially when its under $60 budget? Compatible with all PCs running Windows or Chrome OS. The mouse has great precision and comes with soft rubber grips. Just plug in the wireless receiver in your laptop, and this keyboard and mouse will connect seamlessly. You can even tilt the keyboard to 8 degrees for added typing comfort by using the adjustable legs.
9 Handheld Game Console
Who said they are out of swag? Handheld gaming consoles are evergreen. Great for travel, rest room breaks, hide in backpack, holidays, great tech gift idea for boys and girls (teenagers – ahem) for under $60. But yes, if you know what sort to get then great, otherwise, don’t. With BlueMars gaming console, you get 16GB built in memory loaded with over 2000 games. The screen size is big enough for you to be able to see both your eyes reflected :p. Just don’t forget to give those eyes of yours a break.
