At just $20 for a limited time, the 2nd generation Echo Dot is a great stocking stuffer or quick add-on for anyone on your list. Or, add a smart plug for just $10 more and make any outlet in your home Alexa-enabled. While the newer Echo Dots are sleeker and feature a fabric exterior and slightly better speaker, the original design is still great (though, if you're set on the new Echo, it's also on sale for $29.99). At $20, you can add one to your bedroom so you never have to reach over and turn the lights out, or to your bathroom to listen to music in the shower. It's nice to make your home smarter, without making your wallet lighter.
