10 Budget-Friendly Electrical Gifts for Under £50 for Christmas
It seems that every year there is a newer, faster and bigger electrical item on the Christmas gift list. This year is no different, but we have managed to hunt down a list of the most budget-friendly electrical versions for under £50, leaving you with some extra cash for other festive goodies!
1. Voice Controlled Speaker
2018 was all about the voice-controlled smart speaker and personal assistant, and 2019 looks to be no different. Gift someone with a reasonably priced speaker like the Echo Dot, which can be set on a table or easily mounted on a wall for easy access. Whoever you gift this to will not know themselves when they realise that their To Do lists, the weather forecast and other useful “life admin” is all available in one place and with a simple request.
2. Tile Mate
Do you know someone who is prone to losing their keys or phone on a regular basis? A Tile Mate could be just the thing for them this Christmas. This Bluetooth-enabled gadget can be easily attached to any item and be tracked up to 150 feet away. No more rummaging behind the sofa or panicking over lost items!
3. Slow Cooker
The slow cooker continues to be a popular gift for budding cooks and this Lakeland version comes in at a very reasonable price. A slow cooker is the gift that keeps giving, especially when it comes to preparing great meals for the whole week.
4. Fire TV Stick
With over 10,000 apps, games and Alexa skills, including Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Netflix, the Fire TV Stick is a TV lover’s best friend. This is a great gift for someone who has recently moved into a new house or is often travelling and in need of quick and easy entertainment.
5. Wireless Headphones
Wireless headphones are becoming more popular and are likely to continue trending into 2019. Could headphones be a handy gift for a loved one? If so, why not gift them with a set of decent wireless headphones that won’t break the bank.
6. Coffee Maker
A coffee maker is sure to get coffee lovers excited this Christmas. Some versions can be pricey but the easy to use Nescafe Dolce Gusto could be a great option, especially for that all-important morning coffee fix!
7. Camping Gadget
With all the time being spent inside with brand new electrical items, 2019 might call for a few nights away in the great outdoors. Gift a loved one with a nifty electrical camp stove to incentivise time together. You could be enjoying cosy hot chocolates under the stars come spring/summer.
8. USB Charging Port
Do you know someone who is always losing their phone charger or running out of battery juice? Worse still, is it normal for family members to argue over a plug or charger? A USB charging port could be the best gift for your whole household this Christmas, allowing several electrical items to be easily charged at the same time.
9. Food blender / mixer
As 2019 approaches, you may know someone who is keen to start the new year with healthy eating and smarter ways of living. A food blender is a wonderful gift to encourage any new eating habits, whether it is for making smoothies, soups or other wholesome food.
10. Camera Drone
If you have a friend or family member who is an avid photographer and likes to get alternatives shots then a camera drone is a great shout. Like all cameras, there are different versions available, with several coming in under that £50 price tag.
