There is still time to get your holiday shopping done before the big deal. Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get some amazing gifts for under $100. The holidays can be difficult, especially if you feel like you need to break the bank, in order to get all of your friends and family gifts that they will love. Make sure you don’t go into debt because that’s not worth it. But if you want to make someone’s holiday truly special, check out our picks.
Bose SoundLink Micro
This is Bose’s smallest wireless speaker and it sounds amazing given its size. Yes, it will fit in your pocket. This is usually priced at $99, and it dropped to $69 during Black Friday weekend. Since then, its been on sale at Amazon since for only $79. This speaker does come in three colors and is completely waterproof. Be sure to pick up a case for it on Amazon as well.
Super Nintendo Classic Edition
If you’re like me, and you spent your formative years playing Super Nintendo, then you’re going to want to pick up one of these. It has 21 retro games and hooks up to any HDTV, and it even includes a second controller which allows for two-player matchups. After being in limited supply for several months, this one is now easy to find at its normal retail price of $80.
If you don’t need battery power and are looking for a smart speaker, then Amazon’s second-generation Echo is your best choice. Its available on Amazon for $70 right now. Alexa handles a ton of queries and smart-home controls, and the audio quality is better than the entry-level Echo Dot. It fits in with any decor given that you can choose seven plastic of fabric finishes.
JBL Clip 3
If you’re not sold on the Bose SoundLink Micro, try your shot with the JBL Clip 3. JBL has improved the battery life and sound from its previous iteration. This is thanks to the integrated carabiner framing of the entire perimeter of the speaker, which acts as a bumper. This is one of the top speakers for its tiny size. It normally sells for $60, but it has dropped down to $50.
Amazon Fire HD 8
Amazon has some pretty amazing products, and they’re even more affordable during the holidays. They have the only tablet that is priced below $100, that we can actually recommend. The 2018 version of the $80 Fire HD 8 tablet supports hands-free Alexa, which means you can issue voice commands without touching the screen by simply saying “Alexa.” The screen is “only” 8 inches, but stepping up to the 10-inch will almost double the price to $150.
Tribit XFree Tune
You will be hard-pressed to find a better sounding, and better built, full-size Bluethooth headphone for $50 than the Tribit XFree Tune. This is truly a great deal, considering how much Bluetooth headphones can actually cost. Yes, many have been marked down over the holidays, but if you’re looking for something that fits your budget, then these are the headphones for you.
