All-New Kindle ($89.99; amazon.com):
Amazon basically owns the e-reader market with the Kindle line of devices. The all-new Kindle features a 6-inch display, and you can turn pages (forward or backward) with a touch of your finger. It lacks the water-resistant design, but keeps the classic weeklong battery life, thanks to an e-ink display.
Sega Genesis Mini ($77.95; amazon.com):
We liked the latest retro mini console (that's nostalgia-fueled) when it launched in September. It still holds strong. The Sega Genesis Mini gives you access to "Sonic Pinball," "Mega Man," "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "Tetris," among many other titles. In fact, you get over 40 titles out of the box. Plus, Sega includes two controllers with long cords and an HDMI connector.
Casetify Custom Waterfall iPhone Case ($45; casetify.com):
Personalized or custom products are always nice, and Casetify has an easy-to-use online case design that supports customs for the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. It's a classic waterfall design, but you can pick the color of the flakes.
Bose SoundLink Micro ($99; amazon.com):
This portable Bluetooth speaker just made the cut to be in this sub-$100 gift guide. It's an incredibly compact speaker that can pump out jams in a balanced fashion, a Bose strong point.
Animal Cable Protector ($8.99; amazon.com):
Cables ripping, tearing or showing signs of age are never good. If you want to stick with the one included in the box, this 6-pack of cable protectors themed as animals is a fun way to keep them intact. And who wouldn't want a panda biting the bottom of your phone?
Beats X ($99.95; amazon.com):
These aren't the newest earbuds from Beats by Dre, but Beats X still shine in quality and value. For starters, these feature the H1 Bluetooth chip for easy pairing across iOS and macOS devices. You also get up to eight hours of battery life, and they can quick charge with Beat's proprietary Fast Fuel technology. Don't worry about losing tiny buds since these are a cord and neckband.
Echo Wall Clock ($29.99; amazon.com):
A wall clock with hands and real numbers that don't electronically switch might seem strange for 2019, but follow us for a moment. The Echo Wall Clock integrates with any Amazon Echo to not only automatically switch the clocks for daylight saving time (I know, it's an amazing feature), but it also becomes a visual representation for timers. And at just $30, it's a gift that won't break the bank.
Anker Wireless Charger ($15.99; amazon.com):
A majority of iPhones and almost all Android phones pack in Qi-enabled wireless charging. Anker makes some of the best wireless chargers out there and this one supports Qi in a nice setup. You'll also score a cable. Plus, with this circular pad charging design, it won't have to stand up and face you if you place it on your nightstand.
'Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order' ($59.99: amazon.com):
Similarly, we're approaching the end of the Skywalker Saga films, and "Jedi Fallen Order" provides us with one more new original story. It also fixes the slump of not so great story-driven single-player "Star Wars" games with an engaging story that feels at home within the universe.
