For Tech Enthusiasts
Admit it… you need that techie person in your life; everyone does. You’ll run into something in life that you know you’re not going to want touch because you feel like it’ll cause some major malfunction. Whether it’s at work, at home, or in your car, everything has technology wrapped around it. Thankfully there are those (like me) who don’t mind getting our hands dirty in a binary sense.
Some are able to build their own gadgets and gizmos that do exactly what they envisioned it doing. Some are so sharp on a computer they could create software that puts Microsoft out of business, so another computer may not give them much excitement. So how do you give to someone technically-inclined when you don’t know the lingo or what they might like? Let me give you ten possibilities:
Powered by the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and 2GB of RAM, this 5 inch beauty is what every gadget lover waits for all year round. Coupled with this muscle is the beauty of a powerful 8MP camera and a powerful 2MP front camera. The icing on the cake of course is the stock Android feel and regular updates from none other than Google!
LG’s take on the smartwatch is elegance redefined. With a sleek and durable outer shell and a powerful processor within, this latest Android Wear powered watch is the perfect compliment to your boyfriend’s smartphone. Save him the effort required to delve into this pocket for each small task by buying him this piece of innovation from LG.
Using Samsung battery cells and Texas Instruments IC module, this charger is capable of charging up 50% faster than standard chargers, and can offer similar charging speeds to your boyfriend’s powerful smartphone. In keeping with the needs of powerful smartphones and tablets, the makers have provided a humungous 13000mAh battery, which is sufficient for charging the average device many times over.
One of the few devices to offer full HD widescreen recording, this webcam is custom built for working with major video calling services like Skype and Yahoo chat. Supported by Carl Zeiss optics, the image quality is crisp and does not decline as the light is reduced. With wide compatibility using HDMI or USB ports, this device can be the ideal bridge between him and you.
Get the techie person in your life the gift of music. Most techies have either an iPod or an iPhone or some other MP3 device they can import songs into. Allow them to download the songs of their choice to relax to or work to when they desire.
6. A space to work in
There might not be any better gift to a techie than space to work in. It’s hard to have great ideas and nowhere to implement them. This gift may be a little harder to get, but if you can somehow create a dedicated area of your house (or perhaps buy another piece of property just for this) then the innovation of a techie may flow like crazy.
Techies have to eat too! Why not a mini-fridge in their space to make it easier to get snacks and drinks. This will also prevent them from waking you up by going into the kitchen late at night.
This gift is helpful for productivity purposes. I’m a witness as someone that works in computers, having a second monitor is very helpful. It’s better than picture-in-picture on your high-def television. It gives you more options as far as what windows to have open and what kind of work you can do.
I remember when 1GB was a lot of disk space… now fifteen years later we’re at terabytes. If you’re not familiar with what a terabyte is, think of it this way: 1MB = 1024 kilobytes… 1GB is approximately equal to 1000MB… and 1TB (terabyte) is approximately equal to 1000GB. What kind of digital media collection could you possess with that baby, huh? And it’s portable? Please…
This would be a fun gift. Perhaps your techie is a gamer. Give him (or her) the gift of gaming for Christmas. Include some common games with the system, and see what type of controllers are needed for the games and add those too if you can.
I like the Swiss Army brand. I always felt it was a bit stylish without being too rugid. I think it’s perfect for techies. There are backpacks big enough for you to put your laptop in as well, and there are some on wheels where you can transport it around if need be. For more information on which ones you can pick from, click here.
Great for transport, a portable DVD player is great for road trips or plane rides. Perhaps find a couple of movies to test out the new gadget. I’d recommend a good action movie as well as a good humorous movie if possible.
13. Ideas for places where they can find spare parts
Sometimes what a techie wants is a place where they can get the parts they need. A specialty store if you will. Help them find out where these places are and they’ll be thankful all through the holiday season.
This is a gift that any man or woman will enjoy; techie or not. Get your techie a massaging recliner. It’ll feel like there’s a masseuse right there in the room with them. The added advantage – your techie won’t have to keep pumping quarters in it to get more time!
Teenagers can be very fickle minded, choosing one product one day and another the next. Coupled with their mood swings, such lack of focus tends to make choosing a Christmas gift for your teenage boyfriend a hard task. Thankfully, there have been others who’ve had to make the choices you are faced with now, and through painful hit and miss, they found some gifts for each type of teenager that stand a very high chance of winning his heart. What are they? Scroll down to find out!

Assassin’s Creed is arguably one of the most popular games among teenagers today, and what better way to fuel his virtual assassin instincts than to gift him this well designed and realistic rendition of Connor from Assassin’s Creed III ? With 27 articulate parts, your boyfriend will have a great time checking out his favorite assassin in “real life”. Just in case he gets bored though, there is also a special code that unlocks in-game content from Ubisoft.
