It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... isn't it?! Even if you're not already brimming with festive cheer, it's a good time to start thinking about Christmas presents, especially with Black Friday deals around the corner.
We'll be bringing you a host of present ideas over the next few weeks, beginning with a round-up of some of our favourite products under £50, including headphones, radios, tablets, cables and more.
Tested at £40 / Best price £33.99 at eBay
These E10Cs remain our pick of the best in-ear headphones under £50, continuing a fine tradition of SoundMagic earphones. There's a universal remote and an in-line mic for taking calls, and most importantly there's great quality sound for not a lot of money.
Amazon Music Unlimited on Echo
Got an Amazon Echo? You can get Amazon's new Spotify-rivalling streaming service, Amazon Music Unlimited, on your Echo speaker for just £3.99 month. The normal monthly price is £9.99 (£7.99 for Prime members), so it's a hefty saving. "Alexa, play Last Christmas by Wham..."
More after the break
Amazon Fire TV Stick
Tested at £35 / Best price £32.99 at Amazon
If your TV isn't a Smart TV or simply isn't smart enough, the Amazon Fire TV Stick is the perfect upgrade. It has access to Amazon's own Prime Video streaming service and Netflix, and it's just about the cheapest way to upgrade your old TV.
Chord Company C-Line
Tested at £45 / Best price £35 at Futureshop
Cables? Glamorous they ain't, but you can't build a decent system without them. If you want to hear your hi-fi system at its best, this award-winning analogue interconnect will help you on your way. The Chord Company C-Line is a solid upgrade.
Tested at £50 / Best price £47.49 at eBay
A portable DAB/FM radio with decent sound, a USB port for charging and a headphone output if you need to keep it personal. A good radio for under £50.
Apple iPod Shuffle
Tested at £40 / Best price £40
An iPod? Yes, an iPod! In the absence of any new models, this is still a great portable music player. The Shuffle keeps things simple: there's no screen, instead a voice tells you what song you're listening to and how much battery is left, but the sound quality is typical Apple - detailed and punchy. It's still fine value.
Amazon Fire 7in tablet
Tested at £50 / Best price £47.49 at Amazon
Amazon is again the manufacturer to turn to when it comes to budget tablets. This will suit someone who doesn't demand too much from their tablet experience, and ideally is a fan of Amazon content, but it's capable of decent sound quality, has a decent battery life and is well-built in order to survive careless owners (kids).
