Looking for some great stocking stuffers? Not only are these picks relatively cheap, they’re all things that I’d love to snap up for myself.
What is it: A compact gizmo that plugs directly into a power outlet and boosts the range of your home Wi-Fi network.
Who it’s for: Anyone who has Wi-Fi dead spots in their house.
Why you should snag it: I bought my own Wi-Fi extender earlier this year for about $100, and I thought that was a pretty good deal. But $25? That’s a no-brainer.
What is it: A small portable speaker that connects wirelessly to your iPhone, iPad or Android phone, perfect for playing tunes on the go. It also doubles as a speakerphone thanks to its built-in mic.
Who it’s for: Music lovers who want to take their tunes to the park, the pool (yes, the speaker is water-resistant) or just about anywhere else.
Why you should snag it: The Oontz Angle 3 Bluetooth speaker checks all the boxes—light, small, stereo, sweet sound, and (as of this week) 72 percent off.
What it is: A palm-sized, easy-to-use TV set top box that lets you stream Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Google Play videos (among other streaming video services) to your HDTV.
Who it’s for: Anyone who’s still leery about streaming TV shows and movies over the Internet to their TV.
Why you should snag it: Roku’s streaming set-top boxes are among the easiest to use, particularly beginners, and at just $29, the Express is one of the best streaming video bargains out there.
What it is: A tiny USB hub that plugs into your laptop’s USB port, giving you four new USB ports in the process.
Who it’s for: Any laptop user who wants to plug in (say) a mouse, a keyboard, and external hard drive and a printer, all at the same time.
Why you should snag it: There’s no easier, cheaper way to give your laptop (or any Mac or PC, for that matter) four new USB ports.
