On the 2nd Day of Christmas: Tech Gifts Under $25

It's day 2 of the 12 Tech Days of Christmas here at Unplggd and we're looking at tech gifts under $25. $25 makes for the perfect Secret Santa gift - not too cheap, not too expensive. The boss won't think you're a cheapskate this year, and you're not getting a POS desk calendar filled with bad office jokes. It's not all office gifts though, there are some seriously great presents from clocks to posters to gift cards to iPad/Kindle Fire sleeves. Come check out day 2!

Online Gift Card
$15 or $25 are the smallest denomination you can get an iTunes gift card for, but it's the perfect amount for small apps that cost a few bucks. Branch out and get gift cards for online or local retailers or even web services. A little bit goes a long way, especially when the recipient gets to pick exactly what they want.

RogueTheory iPad Sleeves
From $22
The iPad sleeves from Rogue Theory iPad are fun and funky. More importantly, they are inexpensive - most of them coming in around $22 (others are $32, but we couldn't tell from the pictures what makes up the difference in price).

Kindle Fire Cases
The iPad isn't the only tablet that gets to have some fun. The Kindle Fire is lighting a, well, fire, under the iPad and is coming up as a serious competitor. Some of these cases highlight the non-Apple crowd as being just as creative!

Geeky Posters
From $20
Proudly display your inner dork with retro chic designed posters throughout your home. Show the world you grew up geek and are damn proud of it! Some of these samples are over the $25 price point but there are plenty here and all around this magical interweb that are around $25 of your hard earned money.

Instagrid Poster
Ok, maybe you're not into shouting your geekness at the top of your lungs. Your Facebook photos may be a carefully culled selection of only the best shots from your best side. This Instagrid Poster is for you! At 20" x 40", this custom poster accomodates anywhere between 50 and 400 photos that you provide. You send the pics in, they do all the work sizing it to fit. It's like a Facebook wall... on your wall!

Memorex Dual Controller Charging Kit for Xbox 360
Call of Duty and you've got the enemy line up in your gun sights. Ready, aim, fire! I said fire! Wait, what's happening? The battery on the controller is dead? NOOOOOO! What could be worse than having the batteries on your wireless controller (a godsend for kids and videogames - we remember accidentally yanking the console off the table in our youthful excitement) go dead at just the wrong time (is there ever a right time?). Charge two Xbox 360 controllers at the same time and check out the LED charge status indicator to know when you're all ready to go back into battle.

Rosewill Audio Pro RHM-6308 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Hear all the sounds of the action as these virtual 7.1 surround sound gaming headsets finally let you pinpoint exactly where that guy that's been kicking your butt is camped out and sniping at you. Too bad he's 11 and you're 30 and he's still whupping your butt.

IKEA PUGG Wall Clock
Recommended by our very own Mat Sanders as one of the best wall clocks of 2011! The PUGG wall clock by IKEA is chrome plated and features nice big bold numbers and hashes so you can easily tell what time it is without all the fuss and muss associated with analog wall clocks (wait, what time is it again?). Quartz. Yeah.

LG 22X Super-Multi DVD Burner
Upgrade your computer with a DVD burner and finally backup your hard drive! It'd be a shame if Santa knocked over his glass of milk onto your computer and destroyed all your previous memories and files - photos, e-mails, and even your fine art collection, you connoisseur, you. You could backup your movies and games too if you'd like, but make sure you do that legally, if you know what we mean.

Duraflame DFH-DH-16-T Desktop Heater-Tilting
Baby it's cold outside, so stay warm with this personal-sized desktop heater with full tilting action. With two heat settings - 900W and 1500W - you'll stay toasty without wasting energy heating your entire house. There's a safety switch built in that automatically shuts it off if you kick it over. A built-in handle makes it easy to move this heater around the house or office, although why you'd sit at someone else's desk at the office is between you and your coworkers.
