Top Christmas Gadget Gift For Under £100
Gadgets are a great option for a Christmas gift, but with the range of gadgets broader than ever and budgets a little tighter this year, it’s all about the reasonably-priced ones.
No matter what the special people in your life are interested in, there’s a gadget for it. For inspiration on what to get your loved ones this year – or yourself because you deserve it – here are four Christmas gadgets gift ideas for less than £100. And remember, we don’t get commission from these choices – they’re independently picked based on awesomeness alone.
Haier 6-in-1 Rechargeable Electric Wine Bottle Opener Kit
Perfect for the wine lover in your life, this rechargeable electric wine bottle opener kit helps you through the process of enjoying the perfect glass, from dealing with the corkscrew easily to sealing the bottle…if there’s any wine left. The set includes a foil cutter, an electric bottle opener with a USB for charging, a tulip water aerator that allows the wine to quickly oxidise for optimum tasting, a vacuum pump to suck excess air out of the bottle, and two bottle top caps to plug the bottle after opening. The electric wine opener works with the simple push of a button and removes natural and synthetic corks, making it ideal for anyone who likes a tipple of wine without a wrestling match involved.
Bobbi London Power Bank with Type C
This dual port power bank with Type-C support is one of the smallest and lightest power banks available, and can easily be slipped into your pocket or kept in your bag. Plenty of thought has gone into how this power bank looks, so if you whip it out on a Friday night, it will look the part: it’s stylish with a glossy surface and rose gold trim.
But it’s not just about the aesthetic. The integrated intelligent chip has adaptive fast charging, so when it detects your device it switches to its fast charging speed of up to 2.1A. It has a capacity of 10,000 mAh, meaning most mobile phones will get two full charges out of it. It’s perfect for the travel fiend in your life, or anyone who needs to charge their device on the go.
If someone in your life is besotted with Alexa but finds the iconic Echo Dot a bit boring, the all new Echo Pop comes in green or purple as well as the usual white or black. So it not only attends to all your music, news, and podcast needs, and answers all your questions through Alexa, it also looks good wherever you put it. It’s cheaper than the Echo Dot, so there is some slight compromising on sound, but if the recipient values Alexa and aesthetics, the Echo Pop makes a perfect Christmas gift.
PlayStation Backbone One Mobile Gaming Controller
For anyone who owns an iPhone and loves gaming, the Backbone One lets the gaming continue no matter where they are. Your iPhone simply fits into the middle of this controller, allowing you to stream games on your phone and play them via the controller – just like you would at home on the PS5.
Once you’ve snapped your iPhone in, launch the Backbone app and an entire library of games will be waiting for you to play remotely. A headphone jack means you can play on the train, in waiting rooms, or even round someone else’s house, without disturbing anyone around you.
The remote play feature works with both PlayStations and Xboxes. Sorry Android users, this one is iPhone compatible only, but for iPhone users who love gaming it makes the ideal gift.
