OK, we're in crunch time now -- Christmas Eve is the day after tomorrow. That means 2-day shipping is no longer an option, and you've either got to spring for overnight delivery, or head out to a real brick-and-mortar store. You know, like the old days. But wherever you're shopping, we've compiled a solid list of gifts that you can score for under $50.
Looking for more? I have plenty more in my. I also did the if you're willing to step up and spend a little more -- but unlike the products listed here, those aren't necessarily promising delivery by Dec. 24.

Tribit XFree TuneSarah Tew/CNET
You'd be hard-pressed to find a better-sounding -- and better built -- full-size Bluetooth headphone for under $50 than the Tribit XFree Tune, which retails for $50 at Amazon (with case).
Amazon Fire HD 8 tablet
Most bargain tablets are trash. The Fire HD 8 is the exception to the rule, and the only one in this price range we can recommend. Normally $80, it's marked down to $50.
Amazon Echo Dot (third-gen)Ben Fox Rubin/CNET
While the third-generation Echo Dot still doesn't sound as good as larger speakers, it does sound better than its predecessor and has a more refined design. Its list price is $50, but you can still snag it on sale for $30.
Tribit XSound GoSarah Tew/CNET
Another candidate for best value wireless speaker, the Tribit XSound Go is one of the best ones for the money -- about $32 at Amazon, depending on which color you choose.
Kingston Nucleum USB-C HubSarah Tew/CNET
If you've got a USB-C laptop like the new MacBook Air with limited connectivity options, this seven-in-one USB-C Hub from Kingston gives you a lot more ports to play with.
Amazon Fire TV Stick 4KSarah Tew/CNET
The all-new Fire TV Stick 4K comes equipped with Dolby Vision and HDR10+ video and Dolby Atmos audio, which promise higher video and audio quality on compatible TVs and audio systems. No Roku streamer currently has Dolby Vision or HDR10+, making this a contender for best streaming stick for the money. Normally $50, it's on sale for $35 and currently reporting delivery by Dec. 24.
