The Christmas season is in full swing, and you might be panicking about what to buy for your techie friend or relative. While new tech gadgets and tech-related apparel are being produced all the time, techies are renowned for keeping a close eye on new and upcoming products, so you never know what they have already bought for themselves. Don’t worry, though! Here is some unusual perfect gift for techie which is guaranteed to put a smile on your loved one’s face this Christmas.
1. A phone cleaner
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have become increasingly aware of how much people touch daily objects such as their keys, wallet, and phones. Smartphones are notoriously delicate and therefore hard to clean, but this ingenious device uses UV-C light to kill the germs which the surface of your phone will inevitably have attracted as you use it. As a bonus, the device charges your phone while cleaning it and includes amplifying speakers so you can still hear phone calls and notifications.
2. A funny Bitcoin-inspired sweater
It’s not Christmas without a purposefully ugly sweater! A sweater from Wall St. Memes is the perfect gift for anyone in your life who loves trading Bitcoin, the popular cryptocurrency which has made many people a fortune this past year. Even better, you can use this Wall St. Memes discount code to save on your purchase.
3. Speakers for Glasses
For the techie in your life who wears glasses and likes to listen to music, tiny Bluetooth speakers can clip onto any glasses frame and include a microphone for making voice calls. Be careful only to give these speakers to someone who is considerate and won’t listen to loud music on them while in the office or on public transport, as there is inevitably going to be some audio leakage.
4. A lightsaber umbrella
For the aspiring Jedi knight in your life, get them a lightsaber umbrella – this is going to be the perfect gift for a techie. Combining practicality with uniqueness, this incredible accessory will turn the heads of all the fellow Star Wars aficionados on the street!
5. A driver kit
For techies who enjoy repairing their own electronics or building their own computers out of spare parts, the Mako driver kit from iFixit is the perfect gift for a techie. With 64 screwdriver tips of different sizes and shapes, all bases are covered.
6. A 3D printer
If you want to treat the techie in your life, a 3D printer is a great budget option that will cost you less than $200. Home 3D printers can be used to produce a variety of daily use objects such as bag clips, shelves, and even clocks, as well as figurines and other collectable-type items. This particular model needs to be assembled by the user, so make sure that the person you are gifting it to is into DIY!
