Hiya Sam , these are excellent ideas. My husband is an gadget lover who is really hard to shop for, because he has everything! I like your writing - you have some great articles, I particularly liked your factoid about catching meteor showers.

Im an Electronics Gadgets geek, I love it, I got many things like mobile cellphones watches, dvd players, pda, iphone, solar chargers, video glasses. I found some of those gadgets on for cheap prices, if you contact them they fix the price for you and the more you buy the more you save...

That USB microscope is one gift I would love to recieve!

Hi Andrew, the microscope does sound like fun. Here is another article with more gifts like these, except some of these costs a little more. Seems like it is hard to find these items under $100.

I like the USB turntable idea, record collecting is great!

It is better to give cheap priced gift materials but useful for the person whom we will give. Gadgets which costs 100 dollars below is enough to make other people happy. Thank you for sharing this great and excellent article, keep it up! Voted and shared.
