Technology today is amazing. It seems like you can get a machine for everything these days! Even at home, we have computers, smartphones, smart TVs, security systems, you name it. And a lot of times, technology prices can get expensive, quickly! So how do you shop for gifts for a technology forward family, without going broke? Here’s a few tech gifts under $50 from Ninety7 for the upcoming holiday season!
Ninety7 is a lifestyle company creating technology products that enhance the user’s everyday life through unsurpassed design, function and quality. We believe in setting a new bar and redefining what technology accessories can be. We make accessories that make products better. 1+1=3.
- LOFT Portable Battery Base for Google Home – Now you can take Google Home with you anywhere! Simply plug it into the base and go. This is great to take out to the backyard, the pool, upstairs to a bedroom, or even on the front porch. This makes a wonderful tool like Google Home portable, and even more useful to the family, especially with an 8 hour battery charge.
- SKY TOTE Portable Battery Base for Echo 2 – Take Alexa with you anywhere you have WiFi with this portable battery unit. Simply plug it in and go. It even has a built in handle to help you move it from living room, to the kitchen, down to the basement and back again with an 8 hour battery life.
Technology is the name of the game for most of us when it comes to shopping for gifts. And while we purchase special pieces now and then, sometimes I need to find budget friendly items that will still prove useful, especially with items we already own. I love plug and play type pieces that helps to expand a system already in place, like adding speakers to the sound system or upgrading the security system with another camera.
One of the most unexpected technology purchases we made this year that has gotten a ton of use is the Amazon Echo and Google Home. We treat them like “smart assistants” these days, asking them questions about the weather, to tell us a joke, or even play music for a family gathering. And although they are certainly useful in their own right, I found myself wishing they were more portable so I could use them anywhere in the house without having to buy extra units. This is where the company, Ninety7, came to the rescue. Not only can they help solve a problem for me, they also are helping me find tech gifts for under $50 this year.
We keep our Google Home in the living room. I use it mostly when I’m on the main level of our house, to answer questions that come up, to set a timer so I don’t forget to check on the oven or clothes in the dryer, or play a song that I have stuck in my head. When I think about it, I try to use it for other things like setting up a shopping list, adding reminders to my calendar, and syncing it with my alarm system to lock the doors.
And with the Amazon Echo 2, which we keep upstairs in my bedroom, I use it for a lot of the same uses. Playing music, sending a text, checking on the delivery status of a package, those sorts of things. Again, it’s great technology to have available, whether for doing minor tasks, helping the kids with their homework, or even for entertainment (I love the trivia of the day question!).
So how can I expand these wonderful products without having to buy second and third units to keep around the house?
This year, I’m adding a portable battery case for both the Google Home and Amazon Echo 2. Instead of having to keep the unit plugged in, I can take them anywhere my WiFi signal will reach. Once charged, both the LOFT and the SKY TOTE portable battery bases will run for 8 hours, both having 4 LED lights to show you how much power is left before it needs to be charged again. The SKY TOTE has an easy to use carrying handle to help move it around and the LOFT is available in several colors. And both of these battery bases are under $50 which makes them a great value for this year’s holiday season.
Ninety7 also carries other great technology items, such as the JOT for the Google Home Mini, and the DOX and VAUX for the Amazon Echo Dot. So no matter which “smart assistant” you have in your home, you can still take advantage to making it portable and use it in more places than just where it’s plugged in. I think these make great tech gifts under $50 with Ninety7, whether you’re shopping for yourself or for another’s gift this holiday season.
