    "Although Google Home Mini was released in 2017 i still think this is one of the best gadget gifts under 80USD. Come on it is just under 50USD. That's a good deal already. ALthough if i am not mistaken people were able to buy this last Black Friday less than that"

    "This little ball jams a lot into it's small structure. I'm surprised it's so inexpensive. This is really for everyone: kids, adults and even pets! The pre-loaded games are a hoot, and with the app one can look for new games, so the toy itself doesn't get old. "

    "This is a great accessory to have in case of a power outage or during a camping trip. The light is extremely bright and the power bank lasts seemingly forever. Any camper or hiker should have this in their kit for sure. I do think this should be one of the gifts you shoulf consider for this gift giving season. :))"

    "The Xiami Mi Band is a pretty cool gift for the health-conscious or fitness buff in your family. It's much cheaper than the Apple Watch, and since it's a more tailored and focused experience, it will be easier to use for your less tech-savvy parents or grandparents. I've found myself doing far more intense workouts since getting the band!"

    "Cool piece of tech, but I'm not too into the look of it. I would much rather have a fitness watch that has more features for a few more dollars. At the price point I guess I would give it a try. "
