This is the lowest price we've seen since Black Friday and a tablet under $50 is a no brainer present. It's a present that keeps on giving as it includes over $20,000 in apps, games and in-app game purchases that would normally cost you money. It's durable and Amazon designed it specifically to be durable. 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.
2. Dell Inspiron 3000 Intel i7 Quad-Core Desktop for $559 use Code: DELLDT559 (Orig $982.99)
If that mom, dad or grad needs a new PC with a lot of processing power, this is the desktop to get. While laptops are great and portable they really cannot beat the speed or capacity of a desktop. This particular desktop will exceed your needs for years to come. Its powerful i7 quad-core will do anything you need it to do: Game, photo edit, open massive spreadsheets, edit music or movies. It's 16GB of RAM will let you open as many tabs and windows as you want. And it will take you a while to fill up the 2TB of hard drive space with enough space to hold well more than 10 128GB iPhones. If you need a desktop, we would not recommend anything else unless you are a gamer or a audio video professional.
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 the choose your own game bundle that lets them pick the game they want, from adventure game like Tomb Raider, racing in Forza, a FPS shooter in Gears of War to pure nostalgia gaming in Rare Replay.
If a big screen is on your person's wish list then this Vizio D series fits the bill without breaking the bank. With the included $250 Dell gift card you are really only spending $450! Even at the $700 list price it is a steal considering it has a 120Hz refresh rate and has a full array LED panel for better contrast and more uniform lighting. Includes Smart TV functions for Netflix, YouTube or HBO Go. Vizio has quickly become one of the top TV brands in the U.S. for their incredible bang for the buck and offering picture quality that meets or exceeds the big boys.
If you haven't heard of sous vide, it's all the craze and anyone who's hooked on Food Network will surely appreciate this fine piece of kitchen gadgetry that will make a steak at any exact rareness you want. There is no better way to cook chicken breasts -- and carrots will taste even better. It works with any pot and you cannot overcook. This is Anova's newest sous vide machine which not only supports Bluetooth but Wi-Fi as well -- so you can get alerts on temperature and even monitor the temperature you are cooking at while you are out and about.
For the avid reader, the Kindle Paperwhite is among the best e-readers you can buy. Although there is a new Oasis, it is backordered until June and costs about three times as much. This lets you read anywhere you want with a screen because it has very little glare and a built-in light to read in the dark. This is a tried and trued e-reader and you really won't find anything better without going into tablet pricing.
