It’s not easy for a technophobe to buy gifts for those who are enchanted by digital gadgets and electronic gizmos. If you can’t rely on your recipient to cobble together an Amazon Wishlist, here are a few idea that may brighten the holidays for someone technologically-oriented.
A Portable Hard Drive
320 GB of storage to back up your computer and make all the precious information movable.
Your techie can keep copies of his photos, music, and plans for world domination.
Anything Doctor Who Related
If your Tech Person isn’t familiar with Doctor, Who, start with a DVD collection. One warning: this can be addictive. That’s rather nice, though, because a Doctor Who habit will provide gift ideas for years to come! Check out this heat-changing TARDIS mug, or this Sonic Screwdriver.
An Android Touch-Screen Tablet PC
Built-in WiFi, Bluetooth, great photo, music and video storage, long battery life…the list goes on. You (sorry, the recipient!) can even patch it into your television to watch videos. Great price, too!
A Pocket Knife with a Built-in USB Storage Device
How cool is this? All the usual Swiss Army Knife features with the newest indispensable tool. Data is even protected by encryption software.
Giant Plush Microbes
Who doesn’t need soft, cuddly replicas of Black Plague, malaria, or chicken pox on their bed or in their cubicle? If bacteria aren’t on their wish list, check out the rest of the interesting things, such as a trebuchet kit or a desktop pot of carnivorous plants.
Cancel your cable television and start watching shows and movies free from the Internet. Easy setup, easy-to-use interface, and you can watch anything on the Web, or from over-the-Internet movie providers. Allows for HD video calls, online gaming, Web surfing, and much more.
Give the gift of a very secure, seriously fast, easy-to-use computer operating system with hundreds of free programs, free updates, complete adaptability. Just download the software and let the GeekMeister try it on his or her PC or Mac without installing. If he likes it, he can install it very easily. Bonus: Ubuntu isn’t affected by Internet viruses and is nearly unhackable. It even comes with built-in encryption! Fully functional office, photo, music and video software comes pre-loaded, and you can download so much more to customize your computer.
A Keychain GPS Locator
Is your Geek so busy considering the nature of the universe that he forgets where he left the car again? Get him this small gem and he will always find his way back – if he remembers to set his point of origin!
An Ultimate Gamer Desktop Computer
It’s beautiful, it’s blazing fast, and it’s perfect for the very serious video game connoisseur.
The specs on this unit will make her cry for joy all over the wrapping paper. It’s not just a computer, it’s a life pod.
A Home Theater
Small speakers produce big sound, and the media center stores 200 hours of music to reduce the area taken up by stacks of CDs. Plays DVDs with great clarity of sound and vision. Your family will never have to leave the den again.
