1:58 /

Buying a tech gift doesn't mean you have to spend a lot of money. CNET's Sumi Das has some digital stocking stuffers under $50 that are sure to entertain.

So, you've hung your stockings by the chimney with care, now, what are you going to stuff them with? We've gathered together the best digital stocking stuffers all under $50. It doesn't get much cheaper than the $35 Google Chromecast. Plug this dongle to the HDMI slot on your TV, then download the app which turns your iOS or Android device into a remote and start watching your favorite Netflix, HBO GO or YouTube videos on the biggest screen in the house. If you're willing to drop a little more cash, the $50 Roku LTE offers a wider selection of movies and TV. There's no YouTube channel available but you can watch the other content Chromecast offers plus Amazon Instant and Google Plus. With the flood of Quality Original Programming that Netflix has introduced this year, it's a good time for a gift subscription. Six months runs $48. All the better for binge watching. Another classic stocking stuffer, the iPad shuffle. This-- my new $49 MP3 Player is perfect for runners or kids who are just starting to grow their music collection. Music lovers will also appreciate the Oontz Angle Bluetooth Speaker. It packs solid battery life and a speaker phone feature into a nice design with a reasonable $40 price tag. Finally, tis the season for sing-alongs. Thanks to the $35 Karaoke to go. This mic and speaker combo turn your smartphone or tablet into a portable karaoke machine. Download the Karaoke Cloud app and pick one of the free songs or purchase others. The lyrics pop up on screen and then it's time to unleash your inner pop star. -You're an all star, get your game on, go play. Hey, now, you're a rock star. -For more gift guide suggestions, head to CNET.com and click on the Holiday Gift Guide. In San Francisco, I'm Sumi Das, CNET for CBS News.
