OK so £25 is probably a bit steep for most peoples secret Santas, but I wanted as many options as possible.
Most of these are not particularly exciting. You may even get a few odd looks giving someone a lightbulb or plug socket for Christmas, but I would probably be more appreciative of that compared to a joke gift.
Currently reduced from £50 and this list makes me realise how much tech you get with an Echo Dot at this price. These are surely loss leaders with this discount, helping Amazon gain the biggest share in voice assistants.
These use a generic app called Smart Life, and it is actually pretty good, as good as some other big brands. You will definitely get some funny looks from your colleagues when someone unwraps this.
The cheapest Echo device, this one can be modified to include things like lights or motion sensors.
I am a big fan of Tile Bluetooth trackers, and the Slim is designed for wallet use.
I used these for months, they are a good choice for gym use, they have decent bass and you won’t be too upset if you lose or break them.
Its a battery pack. Probably one of the most boring but useful pieces of tech ever.
The Tile Mate is the most affordable option, this one is perfect for general use such as keys, bags etc.
