7 Christmas Gifts Under $50 That Will Blow His Mind
It’s getting to be that time of year and there are no shortage of great gifts popping up. If you have someone in your house who loves electronics here are some great gift ideas that won’t break the bank.
Normally when I hear someone setting a spending limit on a person the average one that comes up is 50 bucks. Here are some great gift options to help you out.
Griffin Bluetooth Headphone Adapter
The world is shifting to wireless, but if you’re like me, you aren’t quite ready to go and ditch all of your headphones. To fix this Griffin has come up with a great in between product. This wireless bluetooth adapter pairs with your phone (or anything else bluetooth) so you can move around wearing your headphones without carrying your phone.
It’s ideal for around the house or if you are working in an office setting and don’t want to lug that phone around all day. FYI I couldn’t wait for this and have already ordered it for myself. I’m looking forward to using it on my runs.
Amazon Echo Dot
This year we are starting to see the battle of virtual assistants take over. This is where the Echo dot seems to excel. Not only does it have a great price point but you can do a ton with it. From controlling your app enabled house with your voice. To ordering your regular pizza at Domino’s or getting a car with Uber.
There is so much this little assistant can do it’s amazing. Plus it streams music and can connect to head phones. Make sure to check out the video on the product page to see everything it can do!
Amazon Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote
Being able to stream music and video using the voice commands is pretty much as futuristic as it is cool. Amazon has brought in a great little device that allows you to stream apps like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, YouTube and over 7000 other apps all on this little device. Make sure to check out the video to see all of the feature this little device can do.
TP-Smart Plug Link
With all of these voice controlled items you will want to have a few things in your place that you can control with your voice and your smartphone. The TP-Link Smart Plug is a great entry point for home automation. From there the sky’s the limit.
Switch Mate 1 Second Installation Smart Lighting
If you aren’t the handiest person in the world, then this is something you should consider for your smart home. Rather than needing to rewire the house, this device goes right on top of your existing light switch and you can be controlling your lights via your smartphone in seconds. Which I have to say getting something like this, where I am not having to rewire my house, is a great thing.
The one thing I noticed with this is that the app only works with it’s native app. So you may need to assess your needs.
Bluetooth Shower Speaker
If you know someone who is always listening to their favourite podcast/album/radio/streaming channel, then this could be the greatest gift ever. This speaker is waterproof and it’s a perfect companion for the shower. Make sure to check it out.
I have saved the best for last. This is the best thing ever….Ever…. EVER!!!
If you grew up in the 80’s this will be the gift that blows his mind. All 30 of his favourite original Nintendo games in one console for a crazy low price.
Ladies and gents, getting this will almost guarantee you are giving that special man a gift that will take him back to his 8 year-old childhood Christmas. Placing you in the Hall Of Awesomeness. It is available November 11. The MSRP is $59.99 but who cares. It’s 30 games for a ridiculous price. I want this so, so, so badly.
