Xiaomi Mi Box 4K

Amazon Fire TV Stick is the go-to device for streaming content especially if you don’t have a smart TV. A recent entrant is Xiaomi’s Mi Box 4K priced at 3,499. As the name suggests, it supports 4K content and HDR 10 as well. It runs on the Android TV interface and it comes with built-in Chromecast. Mi Box 4K also has support for Google Assistant. There’s also a data saver feature that lets you watch more videos while consuming less internet data.

Oppo Enco W31

There are tons of wireless earbuds and really cheap ones to choose from these days. But one that we’d suggest based on our experience is the Oppo Enco W31. The wireless earbuds look quite like the Apple AirPods Pro, and come in a circular shaped case. Oppo Enco W31 has an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance. The earbuds have 3.5 hours of battery life and 15 hours with the charging case.

Realme Watch

If you’re looking for an affordable smartwatch you can go for the Realme Watch. It’s another Apple Watch-clone but it gets most of the job done. The Realme Watch has a 1.4-inch display, and it packs a 160mAh battery. The smartwatch offers 14 sports modes and health features like heart rate monitoring. It also has an SpO2 sensor, something that’s important when it comes to Covid-19. Realme Watch carries a price tag of 3,999.

Google Home Mini or Amazon Echo Dot

Yes, you can get a smart speaker under 5,000. There are two clear options here - Amazon Echo Dot and Google Nest Mini. You also get two different smart assistants here with each speaker - Alexa and Assistant. Amazon Echo Dot 3rd Gen is priced at 3,499, and it’s equipped with four microphones. Google Nest Mini can be purchased at 3,999. Both smart speakers come in different colour options of black, white, purple, coral and blue.

Digital gift cards

If you’re still confused and can’t decide on what to buy, digital gift cards are your best option.
