Gift Ideas for a Computer Guy?

November 10, 2000

My brother in law is a real computer-head. That's all he talks about and about all he does. Can anyone think of a good gift for him?

- A novelty mouse pad. If you are crafty, recycle an old one with a clean new top. Adhere a soft fabric or felt with no-sew fabric glue.

- A big coffee mug, so he doesn't have to leave the keyboard as often for refills.

- Cup warmer, or insulated cup.

- A CD-rom storage rack. available in a variety of styles and prices.

- Coupons for a pizza place that delivers.

- Headset adapter for hands-free telephoning. (This is from the computer guy in my life.)

- High-quality anti-glare filter for the monitor.

- Donut-shaped chair cushion to reduce pressure on hemorrhoids?

I am surrounded by techies (all my friends are!): Try this website: or

They have tons of gadgets! Depending on how much you want to spend, all my friends love "Apple" toys such as an Iphone or Ipods. The apple website sells refurbished items for a better price. This is what I did last year.

How about some kind of subscription with the latest in Computer technology magazine (if one exists, I'm pretty sure there are some) It's the gift that keeps giving and he'll stay current. When presenting him the subscription include the current issue of the magazine. If he's into graphics, maybe special paper or graphic programs!
