Maybe you've crossed all of the big items off your gift list for the year, but you're still on the lookout for stocking stuffers that aren't the typical picks. There are plenty of options in the tech space that are both small and affordable, and Cyber Monday deals have made a good number of them even more budget-friendly. Everything from microSD cards to streaming sticks to wireless earbuds are cheaper than ever, so we gathered the best tech deals under $50 here so you don't have to go searching for them.
Samsung EVO Select microSD
Samsung’s EVO Select microSDXC card in 256GB is down to $25, or 38 percent off its normal price. This is the latest model and while you can find microSD cards for less, EVO is a reliable brand and you're getting a full-sized adapter with this one.
SanDisk Ultra microSD card
A number of SanDisk memory cards are on sale for Cyber Monday, including this Ultra microSD card in 128GB for $16. While not all items are under $50, most are and any of the microSD cards on sale would make a good option for extra smartphone or Nintendo Switch storage.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
Nintendo's Switch Pro Controller is $20 off for Cyber Monday, bringing it down to a record low fo $50. It's a good choice for anyone who wants more control than Joy-Cons can provide, and we like that it preserves features like an infrared sensor and vibration that are often lost on third-party controllers.
Belkin AirTag accessories
A bunch of Belkin accessories have been discounted for Cyber Monday, including most of the company's AirTag cases, which are down to $10 each. The Secure Holder keeps Apple's Bluetooth trackers secure and protected, and we like the strap it comes with, which makes it easier to hook the AirTag to a water bottle, luggage handle and other things.
Razer's Kishi mobile controller is 44 percent off, bringing it down to $45. Touchscreens are fine for casual games, but when you’re tackling something a little more hardcore like Fortnite the Kishi is just the thing you need. It adds d-pads and shoulder buttons to your gaming experience, and folds up nicely when not in use. Since it connects to your device directly via Lightning port or USB-C, not via Bluetooth, you don’t have to worry about keeping it charged — though you do need to make sure you buy the right one for your device.

SteelSeries' Arctis 3 headset for consoles is 51 percent off right now, bringing it down to $34. These wired cans have balanced audio, a clear cast mic and an attractive design.

Chromecast with Google TV
The Chromecast with Google TV has dropped to $40, which is $10 cheaper than usual. We gave the device a score of 86 for its 4K HDR streaming capabilities, Dolby Vision and Atmos support plus its much needed and very handy new remote.
The tiny Echo Dot has dropped to $30, and you can grab the Echo Dot with Clock for only $35. We gave it a score of 88 for its good audio quality for the price, compact design and tap-to-snooze feature.
Google Nest Mini
The Nest Mini is down to $25. It's the affordable speaker to get if you want to put the Google Assistant in your home without dropping too much money, or taking up too much space.
Anker PowerWave Stand
Anker's wireless charging stand is on sale for $15 right now, or 22 percent off its normal price. It's a handy accessory to have next to your computer or on your nightstand since it can change your smartphone either in landscape or portrait mode, and it's compatible with cases up to 5mm thick.

JLab's already affordable Go Air Pop earbuds are down to only $13 right now. These colorful true wireless buds sport an eight-hour battery life, a small and comfortable design and touch controls.
Anker Soundcore Spirit Dot 2
Anker's impressive Soundcore Spirit Dot 2 earbuds have been discounted to $40. We consider them to be the best budget buds out there right now thanks in part to their punchy base, IPX7-rated design and affordable price.
Wacom Intuos drawing tablet
Wacom's compact Intuos drawing tablet is down to a new all-time low of $50, which is $30 off its normal price. Artists and doodlers are typically drawn to Wacom's tablets, but those who just want a bit more control over their computer may also like them. It comes with a 4k pressure-sensitive pen that's battery free, and the tablet itself has a few customizable shortcut keys. And since it plugs into your machine via a USB-A port, it will work with almost any computer, including Chromebooks.
Echo Show 5
The Echo Show 5 has dropped to $45, or $40 off its normal price. This is the best Echo smart display if you want one as a smart alarm clock. We like its ambient light sensor, smart home controls and tap-to-snooze feature.
Fire 7 tablet
The Fire 7 tablet is on sale for $35. If you're looking for a cheap tablet to be a couch device, or to give your kid without worry, this is a good option. While it doesn't have the Google Play Store, you can still use it to check email, watch videos, play music and more.
Fire HD 8
The Fire HD 8 tablet is on sale for $45, or half off its normal price. We gave it a score of 79 for its decent performance, good battery life, wireless charging capabilities and USB-C port.

Pictionary Air is down to $13, or 37 percent off its normal price. This puts a digital spin on the classic game — instead of drawing on paper, you use the included light pen to draw in the air while other players use the companion app on their smartphone to see what you're drawing. The game even works with Apple TV and Chromecast, so you can project gameplay onto your living room TV.
