Best gifts under $100: Keurig.

Just when you thought the Keurig couldn't get any more convenient and compact, the K-Mini arrived. Less than five inches wide, when our experts tested it, they loved how versatile it is (you can find K-Cups in over 400 different flavors and varieties) and that you can use it to brew anything from a single cup to a full travel mug. It's a must for any coffee lover on your list.

Best gifts under $100: Echo Show 5.

Smart assistants are still as popular as ever, but some seriously take up too much counter space. The Echo Show 5 provides a compact design with the bonus of a screen. It's basically a smaller, more affordable version of the full Show and the next level up from the Dot. The small screen makes it easy to see timers, get news updates, and make video calls, so you can chat "face-to-face" with your giftee.
