Gift idea #1: an Amazon Kindle (2022) e-reader
Already considered the lightest and most compact of the entire range, the new Amazon Kindle e-reader is a real nugget. The device in fact has a 6-inch screen ideal for replacing your traditional books, with 16 GB of internal storage. Enough to save thousands of digital works. What's more, the technology of this tablet is much less eye-straining than an iPad or a Galaxy Tab. And without third-party apps, you can also concentrate more easily on your reading: it’s top comfort.
With the 2022 Kindle weighing just 158 grams (less than some iPhones!), you can take it anywhere you go. This is confirmed with the battery, which offers a maximum autonomy of six weeks. With this, know that it only takes four hours to charge the device, even two hours with a dedicated adapter. For your uncle or aunt used to newspapers, but who likes to travel, this is the ideal Christmas gift! We will also appreciate for the youngest, in order to perpetuate the tradition of paper stories in a new light.
Its price: 99.99 euros at Amazon.

Gift idea #2: the Fitbit Charge 5 connected bracelet
If, on the other hand, your friends or family are the sporty type, then the Fitbit Charge 5 might appeal to them. This connected bracelet is one of the most efficient in its sector and can be found for less than a hundred euros thanks to Black Friday promotions. On the menu, an electrocardiogram app as well as a heart rate sensor to ensure you are always in top shape. Even better: if it's your nights that aren't going well, then the Fitbit Charge 5 can monitor your sleep. It can therefore be used in adolescents whose transition to adulthood is difficult as well as in older people who wish to monitor their arrhythmia.
Like any good connected bracelet, the Fitbit Charge 5 can also wake you up with silent alarms that are only triggered by vibrations. And for sport, twenty different activities are trackable here. All with a GPS to locate you while cycling or running as well as water resistance in case you sweat or simply for swimming. The Fitbit Charge 5 has an advertised battery life of seven days. The user can also personalize it with the dials and straps of their choice, which can help you customize your gift even more.
The Fitbit Charge 5 is compatible with Android mobiles and those running iOS.

Our third gift idea for Christmas 2022 for less than a hundred euros is the Oppo Enco Free 2 wireless headphones. This pair has active noise reduction, a key advantage for continuing to listen to your playlist on the street without being disturbed by construction or traffic noise. It is therefore an ideal present for a friend or a member of your family who loves electronic music, jazz, classical
Oppo's Enco Free 2 are currently available in two different colors: black or white. Their design is all in all relatively similar to that of Apple AirPods, with the difference that here the autonomy reaches up to thirty hours in the best case! Water and dust resistance are also included, which will delight your loved ones who enjoy physical exercise or outdoor outings.

Gift idea #4: the speaker portable Marshall Willen
If, however, you are looking for a more traditional gift idea, but still for note lovers of all kinds, then Marshall may be THE ideal solution. This brand has long been known for its high quality speakers and precisely offers portable models for less than a hundred euros. Among these, we find the Willen, in a particularly compact format and therefore ideal again for nomads.
The Marshall Willen costs only 99 euros, but delivers faithful and powerful sound despite its small size. A wrist strap is included so you can take it anywhere with you, which makes sense given its long-lasting autonomy that exceeds half a day with up to fifteen hours without turning the volume to the maximum. The power supply, on the other hand, only takes three hours to fully recharge. This, of course, with the iconic Marshall logo on the front of the speaker.
A microphone is also integrated for calls, which you can make after connecting your smartphone via Bluetooth. Another advantage, and not the least: the Marshall Willen is waterproof with IP67 water resistance. This certification also allows it not to be in danger because of dust: you can therefore take it to the beach or on a hike.

Gift Idea #5: The Razer Viper Ultimate Gaming Mouse
To finish our Christmas buying guide, the last gift under a hundred dollars that we offer you is the Razer Viper Ultimate mouse. It is therefore intended above all for inveterate players, whether via Apple Arcade on Mac or iPad or for computers running Windows and their nevertheless AAA titles. This gaming mouse is autonomous and does not need a permanently connected cable to function; a charging station is included in the box.
The Razer Viper Ultimate mouse weighs less than one hundred grams and is therefore also a gift of choice if you plan to fly to the holiday season: the object does not take too much space in your cabin baggage. Even better: no need to know the strong hand of the one you will make happy, because this mouse is suitable for ambidextrous people. The black model is currently available on Amazon for only 99.90 euros, or 41% off the original price of 169.99 euros. It is very rare to see the manufacturer offer such interesting advantages.
As you can see in the images, the Razer Viper Ultimate mouse has a few more buttons than a traditional mouse. It is thus possible to customize them to make a video game experience even more conducive to victory. But be careful, because such a promotion may run out quickly, especially with Black Friday!
