7 Holiday Gift Ideas for the Techie in Your Life

The gift-giving season is here. If you’re having a tough time thinking of what gift to give for the techie in your life, then fret no more. This list is for you.


You can’t go wrong with really good headphones. If you have the budget, get the ones that are wireless and noise-cancelling. Perfect for techies who need to tune in and focus in a loud environment.


Coffee maker

For techies whose days/nights are powered by their caffeine fix, a coffee maker that can brew hot, tasty, and strong is a godsend. For best results, know what your brew head loves to have in a coffee maker.



Tech apparel

Sometimes all your tech head wants is a statement hoodie for swag.  



Online course subscription / MOOC certificates

Online course subscription and MOOC classes are some of the many ways techies use to update their skills. As a gift, you can pay for their subscription or MOOC certificate to the online course of their choice. Check out Pluralsight,, edX, Coursera, and Udacity for online courses.



External HDD / SDD

Having a backup is crucial in everything so extra storage is always welcome. Wireless would be greatly appreciated.



New laptop

Few gifts could bring tears of joy. Especially if said brand new laptop has the specs your dear tech head is drooling over.



Round trip plane tickets

What if your techie is overworked and sorely needs time away from the screen? Plane tickets or even better, an all-expense paid trip to the destination of their choice is one of the best gifts you can give them this Christmas.


We hope this list of gift ideas makes your holiday shopping easier. Happy shopping!
