Inexpensive recommendations that every techie loves

Yes, we are leaning pretty far out of the window when we mention in the headline that "every" consumer electronics fan will love the following suggestions. Such blanket statements simply never work in such a manner, especially not at Christmas! But do understand our stand by proposing these tiny and highly affordable recommendations.

Perhaps it is lightweight enough for Santa's little helpers to transport around, or you can always opt to use it as a companion to a larger gift. This is handy so that you do not turn up with a gift that nobody likes or wants. 

Without much further ado, here are some deals that would make your heart beat a little faster, and are also actually useful. We have selected five more practical recommendations for you, such as chargers, microSD cards, or a stylish phone chain, in addition to five rather geeky gift ideas:

SanDisk Ultra microSDXC 128GB

Sinjimoru Magnetic Card Holder for iPhone 12/13

Anker 32W 2-Port USB Charger with PowerIQ Technology

Anker Nano iPhone Charger, 20W PIQ 3.0 Compact Charger, PowerPort III USB-C Power Supply

OUTXE Phone Lanyard Tether with 4 Patch

And here are some stuff for geeks:

The Ultimate History of Video Games

Paladone Gameboy Heat Changing Coffee Mug

LEGO 75304 Star Wars Darth Vader helmet

Playmobil Back to The Future Delorean

None of those appeal to you? It does not matter. The entire Amazon is full of technological wonders and if all else fails, you can simply gift Amazon vouchers:

After Black Friday, Christmas is perhaps the best time to buy a new smartphone because there were actually a lot of great bargains around. On the flip side, there were apparently plenty of good offers, albeit for older smartphones that have been around for close to a year, which means a replacement model is in the pipeline.

I started blogging in 2008 and have written for Mobilegeeks, Stadt Bremerhaven, Basic Thinking and Dr. Windows. I've been at NextPit since 2021, where I also discovered my passion for podcasts. I have been particularly interested in Android phones for many years now, and would like to get involved with the highly exciting smart home market. LEt's see, did I miss anything else? Oh yes, I love Depeche Mode and suffer with Schalke 04.
