Why Your Grad’s Gonna Love It: A lack of punctuality may not have impacted your grad’s life much in high school, but tardiness generally has major repercussions in adult life. The Echo Dot helps your grad prepare for just about anything, whether he needs to schedule an Uber ride to get to an important job interview or set multiple alarms to ensure he doesn’t miss his final exams. It’s a small device, so a roommate won’t gripe that it’s taking up too much space in a cramped dorm or apartment.
Oh, and the Echo Dot also orders pizza, checks credit card balances, and delivers flowers. It’s like having a personal assistant minus the human interaction.
Price: The Echo Dot costs around $50, which is way cheaper than the Amazon Echo and Echo Show.
