I like getting and giving presents. It’s fun.
What I don’t like is the race, or better yet the stress, of giving an expensive present. Will the other person think I’m cheap if I don’t give something expensive?
Well if they do, they don’t belong in my circle of friends and family.
It’s the thought that counts and of course, we can still give nice, fun and useful presents while on a budget.
Since this is is a tech/geek oriented site I will present to you my suggestions for Xmas gifts for tech/geeky people for 2018 (or for any year for that matter, some of them are classic gadgets).
I hope you like them and let me know if you have any other cool ideas to add to the list.
Note: I’m not affiliated with any of those bellow, I just like these products and I want to share them with you to give you ideas and inspiration. Besides the Spacecookies one. This one is from our e-shop but you don’t have to buy it if you don’t like it 🙂
Mobile phone case. A funky, geeky pattern will make for a great present and you don’t have to spend more than 10-15€/$/£ or whatever your currency is. I like gothic stuff Deus Ex the game and of course our brand Spacecookies, that’s why I picked the following designs but feel free to select the geeky/nerdy design that will suit your friends best.
Power bank. A very practical and appreciated gadget. They come in various prices but there are plenty of them in the 10-15$/€/£ range.
A geeky coffee mug. Do you have a friend or family member who is a Harry Potter/ Game of thrones/ “insert game of choice” fan? Then get them a coffee mug with their favourite character printed.
Ear buds. You can find a great selection of ear buds for 15-20€/$£ on Amazon. I can’t choose a picture because there are so many so feel free to follow the above link and choose whatever you like best 🙂
Let’s go over the budget for that special someone
If you are willing to spend a bit more for that special friend or family member I couldn’t recommend more getting them a Chromecast. If you know that this person doesn’t own a smart TV but would like to have such features in their existing TV then getting them this little gadget will be a very appreciated gift. Chromecast lets you cast everything from your smart phone or tablet to your TV, thus altering it into a smart TV! What kind of geek wouldn’t want that kind of gift and since the 3rd generation is out then the timing is perfect. The prices for Chromecast start from around 40-50 £/$/€ depending your local currency and market.
