Christmas deals 2020: 7 affordable gifts in a row
Christmas will of course be a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean you can’t give each other a nice present. You can still celebrate in a small circle, exchange gifts or of course have them sent. This can be a gift for someone from the family, the family or of course a friend, girlfriend or acquaintance.
Of course everyone has a different budget and that makes the choice very large. That does not have to be a problem, because with the ideas below you always score the right deal.
1. Google Chromecast
The Google Chromecast is a trusted gadget that always works well as a gift. With this HDMI dongle you can make a television smarter and more user-friendly. If it is connected, you can stream all kinds of video and music content to the big screen.
This way you can easily watch services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Disney Plus. You can also think of music via YouTube Music or Spotify, for example, which makes it cozy right away.
If you want to stream 4K content, you can watch the Chromecast Ultra or the brand new Chromecast with Google TV. The latter variant contains its own operating system, making everything even more user-friendly. That dongle is not yet officially for sale in the Netherlands, but you can get it through other ways.
2. Xiaomi Mi Band 5
The Xiaomi Mi Band 5 is one of our favorite wearables of 2020. The device is light as a feather, but contains all kinds of interesting functions. Via the relatively large color screen, you can quickly see all kinds of desired information such as steps taken, time, date or your heart rate level.
You can start all kinds of workouts and keep track of their information and you also receive incoming notifications via the fitness tracker. If you want to see more information, you can check it easily and quickly via the Mi Fit app. You can also keep track of how you sleep and the device is dust and waterproof.
So you can just exercise with it, a rain shower is no problem and the same applies to showering or swimming. Charging is easy via the magnetic cable and once the watch is full, you can easily go weeks ahead.
3. Power bank
You should see a power bank as an external battery with which you can charge all kinds of devices. You have them in all shapes, colors, shapes and sizes, so think carefully in advance what you think you need. For example, their capacity can vary considerably, as can the number and type of connections.
With a power bank you can often fully charge your smartphone a few times. Sometimes you can also charge multiple devices at the same time. More expensive variants are even so powerful that they can also provide a tablet or laptop with the necessary power. Maybe nice for when you go away for a few more days around the holidays or else for the annual gourmet round, so that you have enough power to immediately share the Christmas snapshots with friends and family.
4. Subscription to Disney Plus
Watching a movie or series together is still allowed, which is why a subscription to Disney Plus might also be a nice gift. You can also create multiple profiles, so that you can simply enjoy everything the streaming service has to offer.
Think of all kinds of beautiful Disney films and classics. There are also all kinds of superhero films and documentaries or reports from National Geographic. Don’t forget the Star Wars movies or the Mandalorian. A handy tip is to take out an annual subscription right away, because that will save you about 15 percent immediately.
5. A case for your smartphone
Have you just got a new device, are you tired of the appearance of your smartphone or is your current case broken and old? You can of course easily solve that with a smartphone case. This is of course also a perfect, fun and affordable gift to put under the tree for someone else.
So you have simple ‘bumpers’, which provide just a little more protection. You can also opt for a so-called back cover, in which the sides and back are completely covered. Or consider a bookcase, with a flap covering the screen. In it you can often lose some cards: handy for your debit card or driver’s license, for example.
You can choose from all kinds of materials and designs, so something for everyone. Don’t you see anything in terms of design that really suits you? Then design your own smartphone case with your own chosen image or photo!
6. Google Nest Mini
The Google Nest Mini is perhaps our favorite gadget of this year and fun to buy for yourself or someone else. The small speaker offers a great sound for the living room or bedroom. Of course you can also use it at the office, handy thanks to the built-in Google Assistant.
This way you can quickly check your upcoming appointments or hear if there is a traffic jam when you have to go to an appointment. The device is available in two colors and fits into any interior due to its simplistic design. All in all, a nice device to give or receive.
Finally, you can also think of earplugs. They are available in all shapes and sizes. For example, you can specifically look at wireless caps, which you can pick up for a few tens. Do you or the person who gets them exercise a lot? Even then the choice is wide, so you will always find a nice gift.
Not a fan of earplugs? Then take a look at headphones, they are also available in all price ranges. Some headsets can be paired with multiple products at the same time and thus seamlessly switch the music source. Of course there are also plenty of wired headsets available that work via the old-fashioned headphone jack or via the newer USB-C standard.
