Gifts for people who love technology can be expensive, to show your appreciation for a friend or family member who has the top of line gadgets, you don't have to blow your savings, you just have to think like a geek. Then you find great presents for people who own an iPad, iPhone 4/4S/5/S, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung Galaxy S 11-4 or Nexus 4/5/7/10. We also found an excellent cheap deal for the iPhone 5S that makes it more affordable than before.
A gift that many smartphone owners and tablet owners love and the cheapest on our list, is a stylus. Styluses make it really easy to use your smartphone or tablet, if you want to throw in a stylus/pen or one with a light you can get them all for under $10 at Amazon. In fact you could buy a pack of 8 stylus pens for less than $12.00 without shipping. Another favorite are mini styli that you plug into the audio jack of iPads, iPhones or Samsung Galaxy devices.
The only thing you have to be careful about nowadays on Amazon is that many sellers are in China or Hong Kong and ship directly, the prices may be very very cheap, but may not arrive in time for the holidays. You have to comb through results for find product that ships from the United States.
USB 4U & Users
Although we often link to online deals at stores such as Best Buy, Target, Walmart and Amazon, the most precious gifts are those of your time and ideas.
Yes, we did find 8GB Toshiba USB drives on Best Buy for $4.99 each with free shipping (12/18-24 delivery dates) which are great stocking stuffers, especially for students. While, Best Buy does have a $50 savings on the iPhone 5S with a two year agreement (read iPhone 5S review) and you can get you another $50 off with a trade-in (Save $50 instantly and get a minimum $50 Best Buy gift card after you trade in any working smartphone and use it toward the purchase of an iPhone 5s 16GB) which is very nice gift, if they don't have an iPhone 5S, however, even though it's the cheapest iPhone 5S we've seen for a while, there are much cheaper options.
Give Extra Storage
Many smartphones and tablets especially Samsung Galaxy Note and S 1-4 models can add storage via a microSD card. Amazon suggest a SanDisk Ultra 32GB for $16.79 today which is 76% off in the Electronics Gift Guide.
