While there are a number of drone options, here is the most affordable DJI drone on the market. This is the DJI Spark. It’s a solid drone, great reviews and probably your best option in the $500 range.
Best Drones Under $100
Because we aren’t all ballers – here are the best drones under $100.
These all have solid reviews and offer a lot of what the high end drones offer – except the price is significantly less. If whoever you are buying a drone for is young, we definitely recommend buying a drone under $100 rather than a pricey drone!
Amazon Echo Dot
The Amazon Echo Dot also made our tech gift for girls list. This little device may seem little but has lots of might! From playing music to working as an alarm clock – the little Amazon Echo Dot provides quite a bit of functionality for not a lot of money!

The Echo Dot for Kids also comes with 1 year of FreeTime Unlimited gives you access to over 1000 Audible books for kids, like Beauty & the Beast and Peter Pan, thousands of songs, and kid-favorite games and skills from Disney, National Geographic, Nickelodeon, and more
Gyroscope Robot Kit
Teach your kid all about robotics and gyroscopes with this robot kit!
iPhone – Buy Refurbished!
Something our family has done in the last few years is stopped buying the latest and greatest phone every single time a new one comes out. Honestly, the ways smart phones are now, they will last for several years if you take care of them!
When we do buy a smart phone, for us or our kids – we always just buy it outright. We don’t want to be stuck to a certain phone carrier. It just makes us more financial sense for us and now that we have kids with phones, we always buy our iPhones refurbished.
Gazelle offers refurbished iPhones and Androids at great prices, a warranty and you know where you are buying your phone from!
I don’t know about your boys, but my boys are all ABOUT FORTNITE. It’s non-stop Fortnite Battle Royale in our house and our younger sons both asked for gaming headsets for Christmas.
This is the gaming headset we went with. It’s affordable (under $30) has a ton of great reviews, and will work with both their computers and x-Box.
P.S. Here is information you need to know about buying a Fortnite Gift Card.
Kindle Fire HD 8
The Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8 is an awesome tablet that offers quite a bit of power for not a lot of money. To make it even more teen-friendly, this tablet comes in a variety of fun colors!
Amazon Fire HD 8 offers a fast 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, which is 50% faster than the Kindle Fire HD 7. We have this in yellow. It is a sturdy tablet, that comes offers a lot to do at an affordable price!
BONUS: If your teen loses the tablet, you aren’t out a ton of money!
Give your boy no excuse for not having a charged phone or tablet. These portable chargers or power bricks – whatever you want to call them have been a God send with our kids, especially on road trips!
If you don’t have one, gift yourself one as well – I cannot tell you how many times I have had a dying phone battery and have been saved or helped another person by always carrying a charged portable charger!
The iPad Pro offers quite a bit of more horsepower over the traditional iPad. Add a keyboard and you have a great tablet for note taking and doing work that was previously done on a laptop.

Their bullet-shaped Comply T-400 M memory foam tips provide Total Isolation from external noise. They are magnetic for easy stow away. We have these and I have to say they are amazing for the money! You cannot beat the price for bluetooth headphones.
Robotic Arm Kit
One of my struggles with tech, I want the boys to learn – not just sit in front of a screen for hours on end! This robotic arm kit is a great STEM learning toy that is affordable and stimulates learning.
