Still looking for stocking stuffers or last minute gifts?

(NBC News) The scramble is on for many to find last minute gifts.

If you’re still looking for ideas, there are several high-tech options for less than $50.

Bluetooth speakers can cost hundreds of dollars, but the JBL Clip speaker is just $50 and can stream music on the go.

“It doesn’t offer the most powerful sound on the market, but it is still very good, and at $50, it’s much cheaper than a lot of the options on the market,” says NBC Senior Tech Writer Julianne Pepitone.

You can clip it anywhere and stream music from your smartphone for up to five hours.

High tech intelligence also extends to the light bulb in the form of the the Lumen L.E.D Smart Bulb.

You just screw it in like you would any other bulb, but you can control the lights through a free app on your phone.

“You can change the color of lighting on a color wheel, you can add different modes like party mode, or romantic mode, you can even set it to alert you when you’re getting a call on your phone,” Pepitone says.

Using all of these Bluetooth-powered devices can put a strain on your battery life, but you can recharge with the portable Mophie Power Reserve.

It’s $49.95 and can give a quick boost to your smart phone battery.
