Gift of technical shoes for less than 10 euros

Sinterklaas is here again: despite the drama of the parcel boat sinking like the real Titanic, the saintly man managed to get ashore safe and sound with his horse. Before Christmas Eve on December 5, many children first hope that the good saint will put something in their shoes. These techy shoe gifts under $10 are fun for kids young and old.


Now that wired earplugs are back in full swing, they’re definitely a great gift for kids who love to listen to music, or older kids who love to make phone calls in the car. The advantage of this type of earplug is that you don’t need to charge it and can therefore use it immediately: although you need a device with a 3.5 mm port (or an adapter cable with a USB-C end). You already have earplugs from Sony or Philips for less than 10 euros

pop socket

Popsockets come in all sorts of designs and so you can find one that suits anyone perfectly. With a popsocket you can hold your phone a little easier and many people play with the thing by constantly pulling it out and clicking it against the phone. Also, since you can have all kinds of pictures printed on it (or buy them pre-printed), it’s a way to make a phone more personal or recognizable.

AirPods clear set

Maybe your child already has good earplugs and wired earplugs above are not a good idea. With an AirPods cleaning set, you can once again remove dirt from the ears. You can of course use it on other earbuds as well, as there are plenty of brands that make earbuds like AirPods.

Smart Bulb in Multicolor

The smart home craze is now becoming more popular with kids too and how cool is it to give them their own smart home gadget? By purchasing a multi-color smart lamp, they can set the color of the lamp in their home. For example, they can do green if you can come, but red if you want to be alone for a while. Or of course adjust the lamp to suit their room. The advantage of a cheap smart lamp in multicolored is that a smart home hub is often not needed (for example with Action) and they can be installed in a minute.

Wireless charger

There aren’t many choices in the sub-$10 price segment, but you can certainly find a wireless charger for your phone for that amount. Note that the receiver has a phone (or earbuds) that can charge with Qi technology, otherwise it makes no sense. It’s a nice gadget and it saves your USB-C port quite a bit, plus people usually don’t buy this kind of thing for themselves because they already have a regular charger.
