Tech gifts don’t have to cost an arm and a leg, and they can be small enough to pop into a stocking. We’ve rounded up our absolute favorite tech that’s small enough — and cheap enough — to call a stocking stuffer.

Many of these gadgets are things we own or have tested in the past, so we can confidently recommend them. The rest are highly recommended by experts and actual buyers. We also have several other tech gift buying guides you can check out, including tech under $100, tech gifts for iPhone lovers, and more.

A key finder

We all have that one family member who can literally never find their keys, wallet, or purse. Luckily, technology is here to help! The Tile Style is a cute Bluetooth gadget that will help you find anything you attach it to with a few beeps and an app.

Buy the Tile Style on Amazon for $34.99

A grip for your phone

If you have a big phone, you’re probably familiar with the annoyance of trying to hold it and navigate the interface one-handed. PopSockets make it easier to hold your phone securely, and they can also be used as a stand to prop your phone up. Just pop it out when you need it and pop it back in when you don’t. You can choose from dozens of designs on Amazon.

Buy PopSockets on Amazon for $8.99 to $14.99

A smart speaker

The Google Home Mini and Amazon Echo Dot are smart speakers on a budget. Both are smart, but if your loved one uses Amazon services, you should grab the Echo Dot. Android lovers will dig Google’s speaker, though. Both are recommended in our smart speaker buying guide.
