Graduation gifts: 9 gadgets to give the grads in your life

Check out the gallery above for the products -- and more information below:​

1. Dell Inspiron 15 7559 Intel i7 Quad-Core 1080p 15.6" Gaming Laptop w/ GTX 960m 4GB GPU $749.99 Code: J2F1GLWD7?0CNF

This is a laptop that hits all the checkboxes: Powerful quad-core processor, nice sharp 1080p display and gaming video card. Best of all this configuration would generally cost well over $1,100 if you were to buy it from Alienware. This is truly a gaming laptop with a middle high-end graphics card that can handle high-end games and will play at 1080p. Even if you didn't play games, the video card would be excellent for displaying 4K content, any form of photo or video work and drive multiple monitors. If you wanted something that was a little overkill without breaking the bank, this laptop is your guy.

2. Amazon Fire Quad-Core 7" Tablet for $39.99 (Orig $49.99)

This is the lowest price we've seen since Black Friday and a tablet under $50 is a no brainer present. This is a present that keeps on giving as it includes over $20,000 in apps, games and in-app games purchases that would normally cost you money. It's built to be durable and to roll with the punches so it's perfect for taking on a trip, especially since you won't risk losing a $400 tablet or phone. Watch movies, check email, surf the Web, read a book ... this tablet can do it all.

3. $40 FTD (Flowers To Deliver) Groupon Voucher for $18 code TECHB10

This is basically more than 50 percent off any flowers from Flowers To Deliver. While it's getting a little bit late to deliver for Mother's Day, you can still set a delivery for next week. Better yet buy the voucher now and use it for a future anniversary, birthday or just to have something on standby to get you out of the dog house for missing any of these events. If the 10 percent new user coupon TECHB10 does not work for you, try using 5 percent off code TECHB5 which will work for all users.

4. 55" Vizio E55-C1 1080p 120Hz LED Smart HDTV + $150 Gift Card $547.99

The Vizio E series was highly rated and a top pick by both CNET and for its incredible value and picture quality. The current price of $550 is the same low price everywhere, but Dell beats them all by offering a huge $150 gift card, effectively reducing the price down to $400. This was already one of the lowest price we've seen for a full-array LED panel with local dimming and at $400 is an unbeatable value. Don't confuse a cheap price with low quality or bad design, as this a sleek thin bezel and revamped minimalistic stand to fit into any living room.

5. 1-Year of Vonage VOIP Telephone Service for $9.99/Month + $100 Visa (Pay $20 for the entire year!)

If you are paying over a $100 for a landline consider swapping over to Vonage's VOIP service. Basically you make all your calls using your existing broadband connection and it's quite a bit cheaper than a landline or bundled voice services from your ISP. Basically as an introductory offer you only pay $10 per month and get a free Vonage phone adapter. As part of their promotion Vonage will give you a $100 Visa card. If we do the math you are basically paying $120 for a year and you receive a $100 Visa, all in all you basically just pay $20 after using up the prepaid Visa. If you were planning on traveling or if you move frequently, this is an extremely easy way to carry around a home phone line, as you simply unplug your Vonage adapter and plug it in at any location you move to.

6. Xbox One Bundle with bonus $100 gift card for $350

For the Dad or grad that games, you won't find a better deal on a Xbox. You get a bonus $100 Dell gift card which can be used on a tablet, PC or any electronics that Dell sells (including more games or controllers). Also you get your choice of any Xbox that Dell sells, the most popular being either the popular Quantum Break bundle which is a special edition white version. Or we also recommend choosing your own game bundle that lets you pick the game you want, from adventure games like Tomb Raider, racing in Forza, a FPS shooter in Gears of War to pure nostalgia gaming in Rare Replay.

7. Anova Sous Vide Immersion Circulator for $169 (Orig $199)

If you haven't heard of sous vide, it's all the craze and any who's hooked on Food Network will surely appreciate it. This awesome kitchen gadget that has the precision to cook steaks to the exact rareness you desire. Insert it into a pot and it will circulate water the exact temperature around your food so there's no way to overcook. There's no better way to cook chicken breasts or fish than with sous vide and carrots will taste super carroty. This particular version is Anova's newest model which supports Wi-Fi and you can control the sous vide with a smartphone app, if you are home or not. Receive alerts when the time is up or when the sous vide has brought the water up to temperature.
