It’s easy to overspend on holiday gifts, especially if, like me, you have a large family. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for cool gifts that are reasonably priced. You can’t go wrong with gifts that cost $50 or less, and I’m sure you’ll find something for everyone on your list right here.
Amazon’s Fire Tablet 7
Everyone loves tablets. And with Amazon’s Fire 7, you really can’t go wrong, especially if the recipient as an Amazon Prime member, which will allow him or her free access to thousands of book titles as well as one free book rental per month from a large selection of popular titles. It comes equipped with Alexa, and at $49.99, it’s the gift that keeps on giving without breaking the bank.
Tile Mate Item Tracker
Honestly, I probably need one of these myself. The tiny tracker can be attached to anything you constantly lose track of (your keys, your millions of remotes, etc) and will ring when prompted via its companion app so you can easily and quickly find your stuff. You can get it here for only $24.99.
RCA USB Car Charger
Don’t forget stocking stuffers! The RCA USB car charger uses juice from your running car to charge your mobile devices, so you don’t end up with a dead battery half-way to your destination. Plus, it has two ports, so your buddy can keep his phone juiced up too. Get it here for only $6.21.
Fitness Tracker Smart Wristband
Sleek-looking watch, pressure checker, step counter, GPS equipped, heart rate monitor and more for only $29.99. It even monitors your sleep and lets you know when you’re getting a call, plus it’s waterproof and Bluetooth enabled. Buy it here.
Smart Table Lamp
Add beauty and the perfect lighting to any décor with the Smart Table Lamp, which allows you to use your smartphone or mobile device to control its brightness and set a timer via its companion app. The Target Connected app is free on iTunes. The lamp retails for $49.99 and is exclusive to Target’s Smart Lighting Ara Collection .
WowWee Fingerlings Monkey
This is the hot gift of the season. Tiny monkeys that hold on to your finger and respond to sound, motion and touch will delight any young (or not so young) one. But their coolness and low price ($28.88) means they’re going fast, so you should probably order yours sooner rather than later.
