Holiday spending can certainly add up, but giving doesn’t have to mean going broke. Verizon offers plenty of popular products that are easy on the budget. Here are our top tech ideas for gifts under $100:

Google Chromecast Ultra – Chromecast is simple. Just plug it directly into your TV’s HDMI port. It connects to your Wi-Fi network to link to your devices, so you can stream videos, movies, and more in 4K resolution. There are more than 1,000 cast-enabled apps to choose from, including Netflix, YouTube and Spotify. When you take those holiday photos, you can also share them on your big TV screen with Chromecast.

Mophie Powerstation Plus 6000 – This portable charger holds up to two additional charges and is compatible with both Apple and micro USB devices (phone or tablets). You never want to be far from home without portable power, especially if you’re shopping with many people with multiple devices. Keep everyone safe and connected at the mall with portable power.

Google Pixel Stand – Compatible with Android and iOS devices, this stand keeps your phone upright so you can charge and shop at the same time. If you have a Pixel 3, placing your phone on this charger now turns it into a visualized Google Home. With Google Photos, enjoy a digital frame while charging.

OtterBox Defender Series Case – The holidays aren’t always smooth sailing and these rugged cases will protect your device against drops, bumps and dust. Available for iPhone, Samsung and the Pixel. You can also bundle for the holidays and get a case, a screen protector and car charger – depending on your device.

Google Pixel 3 – ‘Tis the season for family photos, whether it’s a reaction from that must-have gift, or just a group shot in front of the fireplace. No smartphone takes better pics than the Pixel 3 or Pixel 3XL. Top Shot is a feature that makes sure everyone is always looking good and portrait mode will make people think you hired a photographer. With built-in Google Lens, finding holiday deals is easier than ever. Just point your phone at a product, and see the results. 

Tile Sport – The holidays are hectic, and sometimes we all lose our patience a little bit and worry too much about the stress of doing it all. Fortunately with the Tile Sport, a Bluetooth tracker, you won’t lose the things most important to you. Tile Sport is waterproof and resilient, with twice the range and volume of the Tile Mate.

Case-Mate Stand-Ups – With Balloon Dog, prop your phone up in style with this fresh take on a pop socket. This eye-catching design doubles as a kickstand.

Apple Music – This is the gift that everyone on Verizon’s Unlimited plans receives. Every member of the family gets their own subscription. You get 6 months for free at http://vzw.com/applemusic.
