For $30 or less, these last-minute gifts will impress

On the hunt for stocking stuffers or last-minute gift exchange goodies that recipients will really want?

Tech often impresses, and we have a lot of options at Best Buy.

Jake Bonura, a Blue Shirt at our store in Rochester, Minnesota, recommends going with tech gifts that are one-of-a-kind, useful and not too big. Something that will get a “Wow!” when it’s pulled out of a stocking or raise eyebrows at an exchange.

“Go for something that’s in that super popular category of things that are trendy right now, like PopSockets,” said Jake, who hosts a gift swap with friends every year. “You’ll want something that a group of people are going to go after.”

But, the most important thing to consider when it comes to stocking stuffers?

“You won’t want something huge. You’ll want something that’s easy,” Jake said.

Here are some ideas to get you started.
