The holidays are quickly approaching, but the big question is what to buy! There are plenty of quality gift ideas out there that should make anyone happy, and they don’t all cost an arm and a leg. Here are our picks for the best Christmas gifts you can buy for under $100.
You’ll find a mix of different stuff from streaming to gaming, smart home to tablets, and more.
Streaming and gaming
Sega Genesis Mini
The Sega Genesis Mini takes what you remember about the original Genesis and shrinks it down. It comes with two controllers and 42 games. Games include Gunstar Heroes, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Virtua Fighter 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
The Google Chromecast Ultra is designed with simplicity in mind. There's no UI, no remote. Everything is simply streamed from your phone via compatible apps. If you're looking for a simple no-frills solution that also supports 4K, the Chromecast Ultra is the way to go.
The Amazon Echo features 360-degree sound with the three-inch woofer and 0.8-inch tweeter. If you're not a fan of the sound, you can change the equalizer settings. Even better, you can pair the Echo with a second Echo (3rd Gen) or Echo Plus (2nd Gen) for stereo sound.
All of the power of Alexa, packed into a microwave. Add time to reheat your leftovers with the sound of your voice. Unfortunately, you'll still have to open the door to put your food inside. You can also save money on reordering popcorn when you ask your microwave to do it.
Get live video of everyone who rings your doorbell. Download the Remo app and make would-be scammers think you're home even when you aren't. 180 degrees of view and infrared vision give a clear picture 24/7.
Leave paper behind and choose from millions of books, newspapers, and more on an all-new Kindle. You can even adjust the brightness to read anywhere. A single charge lasts for weeks of reading instead of hours.
Browse all day long with ten hours of battery life. Open all of your favorite Amazon apps in a snap, from Prime Streaming to your favorite Kindle book. Choose 16 or 32GB of storage and any of four unique colors.
Keep track of your steps and other activities with seven-day battery life. It looks just like a Fitbit, but it lives in the Galaxy family in case you happen to be a Samsung-or-die type of tech enthusiast. Get all of your important notifications right to your wrist 24/7.
The Anker Soundcore Flare is regarded as one of the best affordable Bluetooth speakers. That's thanks to the 360-degree sound with a surprising amount of bass, IP67 rating for water and dust resistance, and 12 hours of battery life. The speaker also features LEDs that match the music.
