Wyze Cam

Welcome to our list of the best tech gifts for $25 or less. Note that all prices are correct at the time of publication, but may change without notice. CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured herein.  

First up: The entry-level Wyze Cam is still an unbelievable deal for a Wi-Fi security camera. Just $20 plus shipping if purchased from Wyze or $26 shipped from Amazon. For another $10, consider the equally amazing step-up model (with motorized panning).

Wyze Bulb

Speaking of crazy-good Wyze products, the company's new smart bulb is a steal at $12. (Actually, it's $8 from Wyze proper, but shipping makes it the same price as if you bought it from Amazon.) It works with Alexa, Google and IFTTT, and you don't need a hub to use it.

Ninja Phone Loop

Quite possibly the best stocking-stuffer ever invented (it actually fits in one!), the Ninja Phone Loop adds a thin, lightweight grip-strap to any phone in any case. It doesn't interfere with mounting or wireless charging, but it does make your phone easier to hold and harder to drop. Available in a variety of fun colors and designs, the Loops sell for $6 apiece -- and you get free shipping if you order at least three.

Apple Watch bands

Gift-shopping for someone who wears an Apple Watch? Hit up Amazon and eBay for a zillion fun and funky bands, like this three-pack for around $18. Just make sure to get sizes that match the wrist -- and the Apple Watch model.

Lego Technic Bash! car

Some Lego sets go for $100 or more, but few of them are as fun as the Technic Whack! and Bash! line. (There's a new Getaway Truck for 2019, too.) For under $16 each, these sets build good-sized cars that include pull-back motors. Get more than one and you can combine them into a bigger vehicle -- or just crash them into one another (the engine block pops out on impact). These are intended for ages 7 and up.

Dungeons & Dragons starter set

Maybe the game has Stranger Things to thank, but it feels like Dungeons & Dragons has had a bit of a resurgence in recent years. If you're gifting for someone who's looking to expand their gaming horizons beyond the gamepad realm, the classic pencil-and-paper roleplaying game may be just the ticket. This starter set includes everything a newbie needs to get up and running -- including all the requisite multisided dice, natch -- all for under $20. If you're buying for someone who already knows the basics, the new D&D Essentials Kit might be more appropriate.

Tile Mate trackers

Apple is rumored to be developing its own wireless tracker. But in the meantime -- and for the millions with Android phones -- the Tile Mate tracker gets the job done nicely. For $25, just tuck this little guy in a wallet or attach it to a keychain, and never lose them again.

Anker Dual USB Charger

This little charger isn't much larger than default ones that come with your phone, but its dual USB ports mean it can charge your phone and a second device -- wireless headphones, maybe, or even another phone -- simultaneously. The plug folds up for easy traveling, too. And you can snag a two-pack for under $20. (Note that it's not just a rebadged version of the Aukey, and it doesn't get as hot as that one does, either.)

Sony SRS-XB01 wireless speaker

This little guy is our favorite wireless speaker available under $25. The Sony XB01 is splashproof and available in multiple colors -- and it sounds great for the price.

Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter

The Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter adds wireless audio -- from phones, tablets or computers -- to any old stereo, AV receiver or boombox with an auxiliary input. It's cheaper than the (now-discontinued) Chromecast Audio, and doesn't require a Wi-Fi network.

Black & Decker Lightdriver Cordless Screwdriver

It's a cordless screwdriver! It's a flashlight! It's a cordless screwdriver and a flashlight! This handy Black & Decker has an adjustable pistol grip and includes standard and Philips head bits (you can use third-party ones, too). It's powered by a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and the LED light can be toggled on and off independently, so it works as a good ol' flashlight in a pinch, too. All for under $20.

Silk Magnetic Cable Wrangler

Hate it when those charging cables slip behind the nightstand? The Cable Wrangler solves that problem: It's literally just a big magnet, and it includes three tiny "collars" (as shown on the white cable here) if the cable head doesn't have enough metal to stay put on its own. The entry-level model is $20, and you can pay extra to get a Lightning cable and wall charger thrown in the box.

BioLite Sunlight Solar-Powered Lantern

BioLite's clever mobile light has a solar panel on the back so you can charge it during the day by clipping it on the the backside of a backpack. (It can be juiced up via Micro-USB, too.) And it's only $25.

Anker PowerDrive+

Everyone can use more charging ports in their car. That's why something like the $18 Anker PowerDrive Speed 2 is a great stocking stuffer for any driver. It offers a pair of fast-charging ports and an 18-month warranty.

JVC Flats

You won't find a better pair of wired on-ear headphones for less than $20 than the JVC Flats. (Actually, they now range in price from $10-14, depending on color.) They're available in plenty of vibrant options, too.

Panasonic ErgoFit RP-TCM125

It never hurts to have a spare set of earbuds around. And considering that they cost less than $15, the Panasonic ErgoFit RP-TCM125 actually sound pretty great. They're available in a wide variety of colors, too. Just make sure you get the version with the in-line mic and remote if you plan on using it for phone calls. (Oh, and make sure your phone has a headphone jack.)

Apple iPhone headphone dongle

Yes, new iPhones come with a pair of Lightning-enabled wired headphones in the box. But they no longer include a 3.5mm adapter. That's why these $9 dongles are a perfect stocking stuffer -- the annoying accessory no one wants to buy themselves, but everybody needs.

Logitech M510

The Logitech M510 is a slick midrange wireless mouse with seven programmable buttons. It works with Windows PCs and Macs, but make sure they have a standard USB port for the receiver nub (shown on the lower right), rather than a USB-C port. It costs less than $25 and comes in red, black or dark blue.

TP-Link TL-WR841N wireless router

This TP-Link TL-WR841N wireless router isn't a new product, it won't set any records for data speeds and it's not great for large homes. That said, it gets the job done, and it costs... less than $20. If you know someone who has an old 802.11b or 802.11g router, this Wi-Fi 4 (802.11n) model could well be a worthwhile upgrade.

$30 splurge pick: Roku Express HD 2019

OK, now we're going a bit beyond the original $25 price limit. But everything starting here costs no more than $5 extra. So if you stretch that budget a bit, you can get some seriously cool gadgets.

First up is the new Roku Express HD. If you can't quite afford its $50 step-up siblings, Roku's basic model is still a nice way to turn any HDTV into a top-notch video streamer. It's got access to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Go and every other big online video service. It also offers the Roku Channel, a totally free (albeit ad-supported) service with plenty of mainstream Hollywood hits.

The perfect answer for our modern plugspreading world, it'll fit three any-sized AC adapters, plus three USB cords. Current price: Just $1 over our $25 cap.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

The 4.5-star rated Amazon Fire TV Stick seems almost perpetually on sale for $24.99. It turns any television with an HDMI input into a smart TV. And it comes with an Alexa Voice Remote.

Watch for deals on the 4K step-up model, too: It routinely goes on sale for $35, but might drop even lower around the holidays.
