Cool gifts for computer geeks
What type of computer geek are you buying for?
Updated April 2017
Computers geeks can be split into 2 camps – tinkerers / gamers and Apple geeks. One likes to get under the hood and the other likes to marvel at the beauty of a well designed but sealed Apple product. Buying the best gifts for geeks of both types has its challenges but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
Tinkerers or Apple Diehards?
Do they like to open up their computers and poke around? Are they all about speeds and feeds (how fast the computer can go) and modifying their computers? Probably love to spend countless hours gaming too right? We call this type of computer enthusiast a tinkerer or gamer.
These geeks want to squeeze every last bit of power out of their machines and choose function over form and are only really interested in what their computers can do, not what it looks like.
But in the end everyone has to sleep right so why not give them the means to literally sleep on their keyboards with this computer keyboard plush?
Gifts For Tinkerers and Gamers
Gifts for Apple Diehards
Easy to spot – often brandishing the latest shiny work of art from Apple’s head industrial designer Jony Ive.
These guys look for fit and finish and are after a premium experience – form over function all the way. They’ll have no problem lining up for hours on end to buy the latest gadget, keeping themselves entertained while waiting by tapping on the second newest Apple product.
Presents any Computer Nerd Will Love
When it comes down to it, there are certain gifts that have mass appeal for computer geeks . These include Certain Star Wars toys, tools that can used to get inside things that need to be repaired as well as other bits and bobs that can make the life of a tech head a little bit easier or more efficient.
Best Apple Watch Straps
We love the way Apple made the Apple watch with a modular system for changing watch straps.
There are truly some beautiful straps out there that totally change the look of the watch.
Whether you are going for a more dressed up look, something a little casual or sporty, there’s a strap out there to please the most discerning Apple buff.
