Valentine’s Day gift ideas under $50
There’s a lot of cool and interesting gifts you can find for under $50, in the case you’re on a budget.
Samsung Galaxy SmartTag object tracker
Let’s start with a recent gadget by Samsung: an object tracker called the Galaxy Smart Tag. One of them costs only $29, but if your loved one uses a Galaxy phone or device, and happens to lose their keys all the time, this little object tracker might come in handy. It can attach to any valuable object (or even your dog’s collar) and if you happen to lose track of it, your Galaxy phone can help you locate it.
Custom case for iPhone or Android phone
Or you might want to have some fun with your Valentine’s Day gift. You can select the design, the color, and any other aspect of the case you want, to make it personalized for your loved one. OtterBox is a company that offers durable and very protective smartphone cases. The company allows case customization for some of its models.
