I love technology as much as the next person but it can get expensive fast! And with graduations, Mother’s and Father’s Day all so close together, I put together a list of 10 tech gifts for under $50, sure to be a hit with you or your loved one!

Selfie Stick with Remote Shutter : Everyone takes selfies these days, and with the selfie stick, you can choose the perfect angle! Plus there’s a built in Bluetooth timer set into the handle to synch up to your smartphone. At 3.5 feet extension, you can really capture some terrific pictures of yourself or the group.
Jackery Mini External Battery Charger : This portable charger holds about 1 smartphone or tablet worth of power. It works great in emergencies or when you just can’t get to a power outlet. Plus, it’s small enough to toss into your pocket, purse or briefcase.
Cambridge SoundWorks Speaker : We all need a wireless Bluetooth speaker sometimes! And this one comes with a built in mic for hands free conversations as a bonus. The speaker is weather resistant and is ideal for pool parties, camping or just listening to your tunes at home.
CTA Digital 2-In-1 Kitchen Mount Stand : If you use your tablet in the kitchen (hello Pinterest!), then you’ll love this stand for your tablet (from 6 to 8.5 inches wide). It can mount to the wall or under a cabinet, rotates 360 degrees and comes with 2 bases plus an easy release button.
APC Back-UPS 350VA 6-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply : Not only do we have to keep our tech toys charged, but we need to keep them safe when they are plugged in! This unit has 6 outlets to help protect from surges and provides a backup power supply in case of power loss. It also comes with a 3 year warranty!
Tile – Item Finder for Anything : This is an awesome way to tag your items, like your luggage, backpack, laptop, etc. You hook it to the item, and if you ever have to search for it, the app on your smartphone will start sending out a signal that will chime as you get near. It’s not GPS exactly but it does retrace your steps. Plus, if you mark it as “lost”, anyone with the app can help you locate the missing item (securely and anonymously).
Koomus Air Vent Smartphone Car Mount : This is a smartphone car mount that you push into your air vent for installation! Don’t worry, it doesn’t block the air flow; but it does allow you to mount every smartphones with or without case on it. I think this is helpful when you’re using your phone for directions or as a music player in the car!
Cheetah Sport Bluetooth 4.1 Wireless Stereo Headset : Whether you’re working out or just out and about, this wireless headset is great for listening to music or making phone calls. They hook behind the ear so they won’t fall out, plus you can control your music or phone with the buttons on the headset! You can use them with any Bluetooth enabled device.
