The Fire HD 8 is the most affordable tablet on the market, and for most people, it does everything you need a tablet to do. You can watch movies, play games, surf the web, send emails, and so on. And if you’re a bookworm (or your giftee is) the Fire is the best tablet for reading books because you get seamless access to Amazon’s books and magazines (a.k.a the biggest library in existence). So when you compare the $50 price tag to other tablets that hover around $150 (or $330 for the cheapest iPad) you have some serious bang-for-your-buck.

Because the Fire HD 8 is so affordable, it’s a great gift for anyone – no matter how old. It makes a great starter gadget for kids, but any adult would be hyped to unwrap one as well.
