    Best tech gifts under £50

    Tech gifts are often a good solution for that person who has everything, and I don’t just mean physical tech gifts like speakers. An Apple TV+ subscription for example will go a long way. You’re giving them endless hours of entertainment and it won’t cost you too much.

    A coffee lover’s dream, this travel mug keeps drinks piping hot for 5 hours (or cold for 12 if iced drinks are your thing) and provides 100% spill-proof confidence thanks to the lid’s lockable push-button technology.
