CNET gift guide: Digital stocking stuffers under $50 01:41

High tech gifts don't have to have high price tags.'s Sumi Das dug up six awesome stocking stuffers that are sure to bring a few smiles -- and save a few bucks.

iLuv Selfy smartphone case ($40)
Be prepared for even the most major of selfies. This smart phone case comes with a removable shutter remote, so you can snap a shot without having to stretch your arm to its maximum length. The remote slides out of the case, then stores flush when you're done. Cases are available for the iPhone 5, 6, 6 Plus and Galaxy S5.

ReTrak Animalz headphones ($20)
Available at Best Buy, these headphones are as much a gift for you as they are for the young music-lover in your life. They protect little ears by limiting volume to 85 decibels. They help you by keeping the retractable cord untangled within the earpiece -- and keeping the sounds of "Frozen" from getting out, too.

MisfitFlash & Jawbone Up Move fitness trackers (both $50)
These two budget options keep up with more expensive models. Both plastic bands track sleep and other basic activities, and Jawbone's app is one of the best available, wrists down. The lesser-known Misfit scores points for its stylish design.

AR Jingle Balls Wireless Ornament Bluetooth Speaker ($20)
It's official: Tree trimming just went Bluetooth. This wireless speaker looks like a festive Christmas ornament and connects to your smartphone via Bluetooth.

Amazon Fire TV Stick ($39)
It won't be in stock until January 16, but an IOU ought to keep your Secret Snowflake (yule)tided over. The device plugs into your HDTV so you can stream Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime videos. The interface is easy to use, and it comes with a remote control -- though using your smartphone gives you the option of voice search.
