Great Gadget Gifts For Under $50

Your family seems to be growing at an exponential rate, which means more and more people to buy Christmas gifts for every year. Good thing you can grab plenty of awesome gadgety goodness for under fifty bucks. Here are our picks.

Victorinox Swisscard Lite

Price: $43
When I was a kid, carrying a Swiss Army Knife around was a standard rite of growing up. Today, not so much. Fortunately, the Swisscard Lite is like the Swiss Army Knife for the modern man, offering a range of key tools in a slim, credit card form factor that you can carry with you everywhere. Well, maybe not airports, but you get the idea. It includes everything from a blade to scissors, tweezers, screwdrivers and a magnifying glass. [OzGadgets]

AppBlaster

Price: $35
Bring your video games out into the real world. AppBlaster is an augmented reality gaming experience with your iPhone, giving you a real world, three dimensional battlefield to play in. The accessory locks your iPhone into place, and interacts with the touchscreen to help you fight off a horde of alien invaders. Hours of fun for any age. [KMart]

Dr Who Mid Air Spinning Tardis

Price: $50
Okay, we’re not entirely sure what this does. Does it travel through time millions of times per second? Is it magical? Or is it just a cool little desktop accessory that magnetically hangs in mid air, spinning around on your desk to remind you that you are not, in fact, The Doctor? It’s the latter, obviously, but that’s what makes it a great gift for any Dr. Who fan. [Latestbuy]

Air Swimming Fish

Price: $50
Sharks! In the air! They’re coming right for us! WE’RE ALL DOOMED!!!! At least, that’s what your friends and enemies alike will be saying as you steer these remote controlled underwater animals through the air. If it’s good enough for Gizmodo, it’s good enough for you and your gift recipients. [Latestbuy]

Batman Money Clip

Price: $US40
You will never be Bruce Wayne. Sorry for the truth bomb there, but it’s time you came to grips with the reality of the situation. That said, just because your dreams of being a playboy billionaire who moonlights as a superhero have been shot, it doesn’t mean you can’t carry around your small wad of cash in style. This ThinkGeek Batman money clip is the best way to do just that. [Thinkgeek]
