Gift giving is hard, so here’s a list of ideas that will cost you no more than $200 – and they don’t have to be for the tech-savvy. Anyone would appreciate these gifts, it’s the thought that counts – and here you are, giving it thought.

Here are all our Gift Guides for 2023 – find something for anyone in your life right here at EFTM:


Giving a gift to a lover of books and reading? Then an e-reader is the perfect option.

If it’s their first one, then Kindle or Kobo – it doesn’t matter.

Hundreds of books stored on a single light portable device. Amazing on holidays, a great way to get the latest book the moment it comes out!

Phone & Watch Charger

If you’re giving for someone who is all-in on the Apple Ecosystem, they’ve got the Phone, the Watch, the AirPods – then this is for you.

I have this on my bedside table. It’s stunning design is unlike most “chargers” you get for your phone and it does it all-in-one as Belkin promise.

Discounted under $200 now at JB HiFI – get it fast.

Retro Gaming

Give the gift of classic games on an Atari 2600+ system that, while not real wood, brings back that classic look

16 games on one cartridge, it’s going to bring back memories and only $189 at JB HiFi

Bluetooth Speaker

You’ll find plenty of Bluetooth speakers in every price range – but under $200 I reckon the JBL Charge 5 is a cracker.

Big sound, from a decent sized unit that’s still not crazy big but works well in any outdoor or indoor setting.

Just $179 for JBL sound and 20 hours of playtime, that’s going to keep you singing “All Summer Long”

Smart Coffee Mug

Know someone who loves a hot drink? Tea? Coffee? Maybe even loves a cup of soup.

Problem is, if you’re not a fast drinker of hot drinks – you’ll end up with a cold cuppa.

Enter the Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2.

This has an LED light to show it’s status, and will keep things hot all day on the wireless charging pad, or for an hour and a half out and about.

Well worth it for the conversation after unwrapping and priced at $199.


Who doesn’t love new headphones. Well, we think the JBL Live Pro 2 are the best bang-for-your-buck headphones out there.

Great design, outstanding sound, and excellent noise cancelling and all for just $169 – come on, that’s fantastic.


Forget a pocket knife, this is the pocket all you need tool. Pliers, knife, screwdrivers you name it – and of course a Bottle Opener.

Dad will brag about his Leatherman, so consider that, especially at $169.99 at Anaconda
