Under $26 pick: Anker PowerCore Fusion


The Anker PowerCore Fusion doubles as a dual-USB wall charger and a battery pack.


This little gadget is my favorite travel accessory. It combines a dual-USB charger with a built-in 5000mAh battery. Perfect for juicing up your gadgets whether you're near an AC outlet, cruising at 35,000 feet or anywhere in between.

Under $50 pick: Amazon Echo Dot (3rd generation)

Ben Fox Rubin/CNET

Updated for 2018, the latest iteration of the Echo Dot is still the most affordable on-ramp to an Alexa-powered smart home -- but it looks and sounds better than ever. Even better, this model will be sold for just $24 starting on Nov. 22, along with discounts on nearly every other Amazon device.  Read the Echo Dot (3rd generation) review.

Roku Streaming Stick Plus
Sarah Tew/CNET

This 2017 video streamer remains our top pick in the category, with every (non-Apple) channel under the sun, excellent 4K and HDR video quality and a wireless remote that controls your TV's power and volume, too -- all for just $60. Read the Roku Streaming Stick Plus review.

Under $100 pick: Amazon Fire HD 8

Sarah Tew/CNET

The 2018 version of the Fire HD 8 tablet adds a better front selfie camera and hands-free Alexa support. Otherwise, it's pretty much the same 8-inch tablet as before -- which is to say, an amazing value for just $80 (and often cheaper during Amazon holiday sales). Oh, and there's a Kids Edition too, with 32GB of storage, a protective case, a two-year free replacement policy and one year of FreeTime Unlimited (free kid-friendly content) for a bit more. Just make sure you wait until Nov. 22, when the price dips to just $50 at Amazon and elsewhere. (The Kids Edition drops to $90 on Nov. 16, too.)

Best tablets and accessories for holiday gifts

Under $250 pick: Google Home Hub

Chris Monroe/CNET

New for 2018, Google's $150 smart display looks like a 7-inch tablet glued to a smart speaker. But it's got the fantastic Google Assistant built-in, doubles as a YouTube viewer and lacks a camera -- which is great, because it means you can have it in your bedroom without being creeped out. Best of all, the Home Hub will be widely available for just $99 during Black Friday sales. Read the Google Home Hub review.

Under $500 pick: Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones

David Carnoy/CNET

Third time's the charm for Sony: The venerable Japanese brand has finally beaten Bose at its own game. The new-for-2018 Sony WH-1000XM3 lay claim to the crown of best overall noise-canceling headphones, thanks to superior comfort, excellent battery life and amazing sound quality.
