It’s 2017, and there’s plenty of technology out there that you can get for a reasonable amount of money. We’ve curated a short list of these items to help you with your gift hunting, especially when you don't have a very big budget.  

Here are six gadgets you can get for under RM300!

Most wireless keyboards and mice just don’t look at home in the living room. Thankfully, this little Bluetooth keyboard from QQ Tech has everything you need. Besides a full QWERTY keyboard, it’s got a little touchpad and buttons for both left and right click. The perfect gift for dads who spend a lot of time in front of the TV.
