Low-Price Gifts for High-Tech Lovers

12/16/2014 02:35AM ● Published by Family Features

(Family Features) If you’re overwhelmed by shopping for technology items for the gadget lovers on your holiday list, rest assured that you can still find fun, unique high-tech gifts that won't break the bank.

“Phones, tablets and cameras are nice but pretty standard,” said personal technology expert and Yahoo Tech founder David Pogue. “Online, you can find a plethora of smaller, fun, offbeat gadgets and gizmos that can help you give the tech geek on your list a gift to remember.”

With the holiday shopping season wrapping up soon, you can make your purchasing easier with resources such as Yahoo Tech (www.yahoo.com/tech), which makes holiday gifting easier with detailed trends and product reviews, as well as suggestions for gifts that fit the needs of everyone on your list.

Before you jump online to start shopping, take a look at Pogue’s list of favorite affordable and fun gift ideas for the season:

  • Kinivo Speaker: This speaker boasts surprisingly good audio quality and a self-contained cable. The top pops up to expand the cavity for better bass.
  • Prank Packs: Packages for fake products – you put the person’s real gift inside, which they open after a good laugh.
  • Thin Optics Phone Case: Forget squinting to read the screen; this slim phone case comes with backup reading glasses to make viewing your phone easier than ever.
  • Parrot Rolling Spider Drone: This inexpensive drone will provide hours of fun flying indoors. It even does tricks, walking up walls and across ceilings.
  • SanDisk Cruzer Fit 64gb: Instantly expand a laptop’s hard drive with this tiny little nub that fits easily into your laptop’s USB jack.
  • Quirky+GE Internet-Controllable Pivot Power Strip: A flexible power strip lets you plug in devices, then control them across the Internet with your phone.
  • Harmony Hub: Your home entertainment system has never been easier to control than with this gadget that controls your entire system (TV, sound system, Blu-ray player, TiVo, etc.) from your phone. No programming is needed, you just tell it which components you own, and it does the rest.
