We had a very special post showcasing the best tech gifts for under $25 and we think there should be another one for goodies under $50. 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!
VuPoint Portable Scanner – $49
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.
Digital Padlock – $34
For the security freak in your family, set them up with the Dialspeed Electronic Padlock. With a resettable combination, you won’t have to worry about locking yourself out of your own stuff ever again. For those who love keeping their things safe, $46 is a low price to pay.
Cambridge SoundWorks – $28
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 $50
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 $50 is a great bargain! Just make you get the right size because this bundle offers different sizes depending on the screen size of your tablet device.
KOTION EACH GS900 – $39
For the gamers in your family, set them up with the Kotion Gaming Headset. With its sleek design, powerful speakers, and seamless chat capability, it’s obvious why the gamer in your family would love this headset. And you’ll love the price too because its just $39.
We all love our cell phones, but hate when they die on us. For the heavy 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 very handy feature which keeps you up to speed regarding the remaining battery life of this device.
MPow Jaws Headphones – $26
I own two MPow earphones so naturally, I’m going to promote it! The Jaws are in a league of its own. The Bluetooth connectivity was quick and painless, the sound was even better than my JBL speakers and the very fact that it’s hanging around my neck and earpieces are not getting lost, is a big relief! I have taken numerous calls while wearing this headset and the other side didn’t have any complains regarding the call quality. Noise cancellation is a big plus because I love having the bubble around my head especially when I’m in a mall. It’s lightweight and comfortable and would be a great gift for the price.
Playstation TV – $47
Another great gift idea for your gaming friends. The Playstation TV allows users to play hundreds of Playstation games, download movies, and apps. It’s great for nostalgic gamers who want to play classic titles. And it’s great for you because it is only $47. If you wish to get the bundle, then that is priced at $85 and still under $100 price range!
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 HTC Nexus 9, second, it supports USB 3.0 which means fast transfers and third, it’s 128GB in a super compact size. To use, simply toggle the knob to one end to open the micro-USB connector and switch it back to for USB 3.0 connector. This one inch of gizmo lightweight and is 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 of $28, this is by far the most useful tech gift you can get under $50 budget.
Logitech is the best brand for computer accessories, so why not gift a wireless keyboard and mouse combo especially when its under $50 budget? Compatible with all PCs running Windows or Chrome OS. The mouse has a great precision mouse 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.
