If your favorite laptop-toting loved one needs a storage boost, this itty-bitty dynamo is sure to make them smile. This barely two-ounce flash drive packs in an impressive 128GB of storage, and it’s so small you’ll barely notice it peeking out of a laptop USB port.

One of the best tech deals this holiday season also happens to be among the smallest. Amazon’s palm-sized Echo Dot smart speaker connects to your home Wi-Fi network and answers to “Hey, Alexa!” Ask it to do anything from turn on the lights (assuming your lights are plugged into a Wi-Fi smart plug), check the weather, play some music, set an alarm, order pizza, or even make a call.

Heads up! For a lot less cash than you might think (especially since it’s on sale), the Holy Stone Predator drone can soar across your living room or around the neighborhood. Capable of performing 360-degree flips and rolls at the touch of a button, the Predator boasts a trio of speed modes, a bank of LED lights for nighttime flights, “safe crash” bumpers and about an hour of flying time.
