The coders' end of the year secret gift wish list

The coders' end of the year secret gift wish list

Do you have a friend, partner or family member who is a coder? Finding it difficult when deciding what to get them for the festive season? Have no fear… we’re here to help! Now you know what every coder really craves for this year.


1. Virtual Reality headset

VR is all the rage nowadays and a good headset provides an excellent VR experience. This ‘Good Geek Gift’ is bound to get a stamp of approval.


2. Laptop bag

A high-quality laptop bag can be a really great gift for a techie friend, especially if he or she does their coding on their laptop. Look for a bag made of high-quality and robust materials, large enough to fit a 15-inch laptop, with extra space and pockets.


3. Laptop stickers

Great if you want to personalise a laptop or be able to identify it from afar. Look for waterproof and sun protected stickers made of high-quality vinyl.


4. Heat-changing coffee mug

Although they don’t actually serve any purpose (except in being a ‘vehicle’ for a lovely cup of coffee (or tea, or hot chocolate), these heat sensitive receptacles are great fun.


5. Robot vaccum

Doing household chores often falls to the bottom of the list during crunch time. A robot vacuum is the perfect gift for someone who simply does not have the time to clean the floors.


6. Noise-isolating headphones

This is a no-brainer really. A lot of a coder’s work needs to be done in isolation, with as little distraction as possible.


7. Programmable drone

Let’s put some fun in this gift-giving! If you have some money to spend, go for a fully-programmable drone with high-precision positioning, obstacle sensing, and extra-long flight times.


8. Computer glasses

These special glasses minimize eye strain and are perfect for someone who spends a lot of time in front of a screen.


9. Fitness tracker

Due to the nature of their job, many coders tend to live a rather sedentary lifestyle. A fitness tracker may encourage them get off their chairs and on to their feet.


10. Subscription to a music streaming site

Many coders listen to music while they work. A subscription to one of the music streaming sites is a nice, thoughtful yet practical gift.
