Shopping for a gadget-obsessed friend or family member? Tech gifts are some of the most popular and sought-after gifts out there, yet many electronic products come along with a big price tag. But if you’ve written off any and all devices this year because of the fear of sticker shock, you might think twice after seeing our editors’ creative ideas when it comes to gifts for tech lovers–some of the items are even small enough to fit in a Christmas stocking.

We’ve kept things affordable because we know just how many people you have to shop for, but cost-effective doesn’t have to mean lame. You can still get one of the year’s best tech gifts—a virtual reality headset—for under $100. Plus, there are dozens of great tech items priced at $50 and under too, like foldable keyboards, Bluetooth tracking tags, and robots. Whether you’re looking for cool tech gifts for a man, a woman, or a child, you’ll find the best option here for even the pickiest person on your list.
