It’s tough to shop for the tech enthusiast in your life. They’re often picky, they typically already own whatever’s new, hot, and of the moment before everyone else, and they’re notoriously tough to please. So what to give the person who definitely deserves something awesome — and that they probably don’t own yet? We’ve rounded up a few ideas that are all priced under $100.

Apple HomePod Mini

The wonders of innovation never fail to cease, and the Apple HomePod Mini is a wonderful expression of what’s possible in the modern world.

It takes up just a fraction of available space on a desk or tabletop, yet its functionalities are immense. It’s designed to integrate with other Apple products, so your recipient can easily answer calls, play music, and control the TV with it. It’s also, of course, a remote assistant that provides the day’s news and weather with a simple command. Add to that an elegant façade and you have the perfect gift for that tech connoisseur in your life.
