The best gifts under $50 for 2021

Ready to do some shopping? We've got some deals on great, affordable products.

This story is part of Gift Guide, our year-round collection of the best gift ideas.

If your gift budget calls for finding the best gifts for $50 or less and you are trying to move beyond typical presents such as wine, slippers or a candle (not that there's anything wrong with those), you've come to the right place. Note that pricing and availability for each item were accurate at the time of this story's most recent update, but both are subject to change without notice.

Some of the best deals at Amazon's October Prime Day sale were the older Echo Dot and Echo Show devices, which had their prices cut in half. Like some other Prime Day deals on Amazon devices, these Amazon Prime discounts have largely stuck around at Amazon, Best Buy and some other retailers, at least for now. Grabbing this Alexa-powered smart display for under $50 is definitely a great deal. (Go for the Echo Show 8 at $65 if you want a larger 8-inch screen.)

"Hey Google, what's today's weather?" That's a handy way to start the morning, which is why the Lenovo Smart Clock is both a great gift for your loved ones and a great bedside companion. This little guy isn't as full-featured as Google's own Nest Hub, but it costs about a third as much. Save even more with the newer Smart Clock Essential, which has a monochrome screen for under $30. Both of them include a USB-A port to charge up your gadgets overnight, too.
