The sub-$50 holiday gift can be tricky. You want to get something that’s not only cool but (let’s be honest) that says you spent more than what you would have paid for lottery scratch-offs. Fortunately, there are a surprising number of great tech-related gifts in this price range that will put a smile on the faces you love. A portable Bluetooth keyboard that doubles as a speaker and an iPhone case that changes colors are among our top picks.
Just drop a smartphone or any speakerphone or music-playing device on top of this Audiovox SoundFlow SoundBoard, and the voice or music is magically amplified. No wires, no Bluetooth, no NFC, no Wi-Fi, no pairing, no jacks, no fuss, no muss. Unfortunately, this accessory won't charge a music player. It runs on either two AA batteries or AC. It's available in three finishes: wood, white or black.
