I love tech gifts. More specifically, I love getting tech gifts. The only problem is that most of them always come with a hefty price (hello, all Apple products). That said, there are a few tech gifts under $30 that can make your life remarkably better by having them in your life.
Whether you are on a budget or just not sure how sure you are of this new guy in your life, you can still show some love (or like, you know, if you haven’t said the “L” word yet) while being tech-savvy.

This little tech gadget is a dream come true. You link it to your phone, and it will track whatever you put them on, from a pair of keys to a wallet to your bike. It will mark the last location synced to your phone, making losing your keys (or anything else) a thing of the past.
The other nice thing about it is if you have something stolen, Tile connects to other Bluetooth devices that have the app on them to help track down your lost item. This has helped me so much. I lose my keys all the time in the house, and now I can track them down. Plus, the reverse works with your phone. If you click on the Tile button, you can find your phone if it’s in Bluetooth range.
Kasa Outdoor Smart Plug
This is a great gift. It’s small tech but still can be a big lifesaver in the winters or just for timing different plugs like Christmas lights or plugging in your car in colder weather climates. It’s Alexa and Google friendly as well.
10” Ring Light with 50” Extendable Tripod Stand
If you have a YouTuber, or even just someone who wants better lighting during their next Zoom call, this ring light is a steal of a deal under $30. Plus, it has a mount for your phone and a remote. It also comes with a tripod stand so you have everything you need right out of the box.
Anker Bluetooth Speaker
Another excellent tech gift under 30 is this Bluetooth speaker. It’s water-resistant and puts out 10W. Plus, it has a built-in microphone for taking calls. Since it’s listed as the #1 best seller in Amazon (at the time of writing this), you can rest assured it’s in demand.
Bluetooth Beanie with Running Earphones
This is the best idea I have seen in a long time. When you live in a cold climate you have something on your head wherever you go. Headphone wires often get frozen so in comes this Bluetooth Beanie, I have already put this on my list for this year I can’t wait to get it.

If you want to get into the small earphone game but don’t have a ton of cash to drop on Apple’s Earpods, then this is a great entry-level product. The battery lasts up to 6 hours and makes for the perfect gift with a great price point.
If you have a gamer, or someone who wants to do the whole multi-screen setup (and trust me they do, it’s life-altering. Then this mounting bracket that is good for two 27′ screens is the perfect gift under $30.
