Tribit Xfree Tune

Add to my Christmas List

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 £47 at Amazon.

Amazon Fire 7 tablet

Add to my Christmas List

While we still prefer the faster, better and larger 8-inch Fire HD 8 tablet for £80, this 7-incher still remains the best tablet you can get for £50. 

See the Fire 7 at Amazon.

Fire TV Stick 4K

Add to my Christmas List

The all-new Fire TV Stick 4K costs £50 and 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.

Logitech K380 Multi-Device Bluetooth keyboard

Add to my Christmas List

Logitech's K380 has been around for a while, but it's still a great keyboard for the money. You can find it for £34 online.

See it at Amazon.

Roku Express streaming player

Add to my Christmas List

We already loved this little £25 video streamer, which turns any HDMI-equipped TV into a gateway to online entertainment bliss: Netflix, Amazon, BBC iPlayer, YouTube,  and literally hundreds of other streaming channels. Get the 4K model if your TV is so-equipped; otherwise, this cheaper version does the job nicely.

Anker SoundBuds Slim

Add to my Christmas List

Google Chromecast (2015)

Add to my Christmas List

Embrace the mobile lifestyle with the £30 Chromecast video streamer. Connect it to any TV and use your phone as the remote control for services such as YouTube, Netflix and many more. Just note that it doesn't offer Amazon Video -- and it isn't available on Amazon, either.

See it on Google.

Google Chromecast Audio

Add to my Christmas List

The Chromecast Audio isn't a wireless speaker in and of itself, but this £30 Wi-Fi gadget adds streaming audio to any old stereo. It offers universal compatibility with Android phones, and some (but not all) iOS apps can stream to it also.

See it at Google.

Tribit XFree Color

Add to my Christmas List

Similar to the Anker Soundbuds Slim, the XFree Color is an in-ear wireless sports headphone that sounds good and fits securely, for £23. As its name implies, it's available in a few different trim colour options.

See the Tribit XFree Color on Amazon.

Amazon Echo Dot (third generation)

Add to my Christmas List

While the third-generation Echo Dot still doesn't sound great, it does sound better than its predecessor and has a more refined design. Once again its list price is £49.99 but be on the lookout for those Echo Dot flash sales.

See it at Amazon.

JBL Clip 2

Add to my Christmas List

The JBL Clip 2 can't respond to your voice, but this little waterproof Bluetooth speaker sounds great for its size and it's a worthy gift for anyone who does a lot of traveling. The newer Clip 3, which plays louder and has a little more bass, costs £50, while its older sibling is now generally sold at closer to £40.

Oontz Angle 3 Plus

Add to my Christmas List

It has a goofy name, but the Oontz Angle 3 Plus is arguably the sound quality champion for wireless Bluetooth speakers in the sub-£50 price range. In fact, you can find it for about £40.

Tribit XSound Go

Add to my Christmas List

Another candidate for best value wireless speaker, the Tribit XSound Go is one of the best ones for the money -- about £25 at Amazon.

JBL Go 2

Add to my Christmas List

JBL has upgraded its smallest Bluetooth speaker, the Go 2, with improved sound and full waterproofing. It may not sound great but it sounds impressive for such a small speaker. Available in multiple colour options for £30.

Logitech Harmony 350

Add to my Christmas List

Harmony's entry-level remote may not have all the bells and whistles of its higher-end universal clickers, but it's simple to set up and use and costs just over £35.
