The holiday shopping season is in full swing and while you’ve likely already started checking several names off your list, you may be struggling with ideas when it comes to that cousin, maybe a co-worker, and others that you want to show your appreciation towards this holiday but without breaking the bank. Say no more, we’ve gathered up some of the best tech gifts under $25.

What makes most of these gifts stand out is that they genuinely are handy and yet the everyday Joe or Jane in your life probably would never consider buying them on their own.
