Great Gifts for Cord Cutters Under $50

Without breaking the bank, these gifts are guaranteed to be a hit with just about anyone who has cut the cord on cable TV.

  • An Over-the-Air TV Antenna (starting at $20 US)
    Every cord cutter should have an Over-the-Air TV antenna to enjoy free live, local broadcasts. If they live in an urban area, a small indoor TV antenna will do. Those who live in the burbs will want a larger, more expensive outdoor model though. Use this tool to find out if they can get broadcast signals at their address.
  • An Over-the-Air Antenna Recommendation Consultation ($40 US)
    Not sure which antenna to buy? New cord cutters or those looking to ditch more expensive ‘big bundle’ streaming services would benefit from an Over-the-Air TV antenna recommendation consultation with Tyler The Antenna Man. Known for his popular YouTube Channel, Tyler will provide expert advice based on their specific location so your gift recipient can enjoy free OTA TV for years to come.
  • A Streaming Service Gift Card (starting at $25 US)
    Just about every streaming TV service offers either physical or digital gift cards which can be applied to new or existing accounts. And don’t be afraid to think beyond Netflix and Disney+… Try a Paramount+ card for Trekkies, Crunchyroll for anime fans, or Curiosity Stream for documentary enthusiasts.
