What's the right price range for a gift when you don't want to appear too cheap but also don't want to spend too much? That's easy: $50-100. Sure, I may be a little biased because I rounded up a bunch products that cost between $50 and $100, but I also believe it.
There's lots of good stuff to choose from in this price range. I've posted a few of my top picks here, but I have plenty more in my. And I also did the best tech gifts under $50 for those looking for something a little more affordable.

Speaking of Amazon: The company makes the only tablet priced under $100 that we can enthusiastically recommend. The 2018 version of the $80 Fire HD 8 tablet supports hands-free Alexa, which means you can issue voice commands without touching the screen by simply saying "Alexa." The screen is "only" 8 inches, but stepping up to the 10-inchwill almost double the price to $150. See it at Amazon
