This holiday season is shaping up to be a challenging one with shopping budgets stretched to the limit.
So what can you do if you're looking for great gifts for the loved ones in your life?
Have No Fear?
I rounded up seven of my favorite, most affordable gifts you can give this year.
First up is the Aeropress espresso and coffee maker.
Few coffee accoutrements have garnered such a rabid following is the Aeropress.
Which promises and delivers excellent espresso shots, an Americano coffee for just 30$.
It's really a great gift for Java lovers.
2# the amazfit bip S amazfit packs an embarrassment of riches into this 7000$.
smart watch, which is notable not just for its transflective always on color screen, but also its battery which can last a wopping 40 days.
It also has onboard GPS for tracking runs an other outdoor exercise and it monitors your heart rate all day.
3# the hotline.
16000, power bank.
Know someone who grew up in the 80s?
Get them this 40$ mobile charger which looks exactly like an oldfashioned- Sony Walkman.
But it's super functional to able to charge up to three devices simultaneously.
One of them using wireless charging.
I have mad love for this thing.
4# the Mpower X3 true wireless earbuds.
Shockingly good for the price.
That's how Cnet's resident audio expert, David Carnoy, described the Mpower X3 earbuds, which at 6000$.
are less than 14/ the regular price of Apple Airpods Pro, and you can often find a sale or coupon that brings the price down to 50$ or less.
Number 5A, portable ping pong set.
This is one of my favorite discoveries of 2020.
It's a retractable ping pong net that can be set up just about anywhere.
Dining room, table, picnic table, conference room table and so on.
You also get a pair of paddles.
Some balls Anna drawstring case to carry it all.
Presto table tennis to go.
There are lots of these sets available from different Amazon sellers.
Most of them are priced around 20$ number 6A digital photo frame.
At 100$, this is the most expensive item on my list, but it's worth it.
A digital photo frame freeze photos from your phone, putting them on display in a non stop slideshow.
This one can hold thousands of photos more if you pop into memory card and it allows friends and family members to add new ones via a simple app.
As gifts go.
I cannot recommend this highly enough, especially for a parent or grandparent.
7# is the wise Cam V3.
The third iteration of Wise is home security.
Camera is the best yet.
Yet the price remains at a seemingly impossible 20$.
The V3 has all the important features and still offers free cloud storage.
Plus this model can work outdoors as well as indoors.
It's just an incredible deal weather for yourself or someone else for more great holiday gifts.
