Gadget Geek Gifts For Cheap Holiday Shopping Ideas
One of the most difficult tasks I face each year is buying holiday gifts for the geeks on my list. Let's face it, computer geeks are addicted to one thing.... their computer. And, trying to buy a helpful new gadget can be a difficult task. Plus, it can be very costly. Especially if the purchase made is not something your favorite geek wants or needs.
There are all sorts of computer gadgets available in all prices ranges. I like to stick to an affordable price range of $20 to $100. Anything more than that needs to be pre-approved by the geek receiving the gift. One year I bought my favorite geek a pair of $500 video glasses that looked like a fancy pair of designer sunglasses. At first, he was happy, but after careful inspection, the glasses were proven to be less than useful. They were returned for a refund. That's not the way I like to give gifts.
It's nice to hint for gift ideas, and then again, sometimes it's not. This year, I'm giving all the geeks on my list a variety of heated computer gadgets. There are new and innovative USB products available this year which make perfect gifts. Some are even small enough to be stocking-stuffers. Being energy-conscious and eco-minded, finding alternative ways to provide low-cost warmth during the winter has become a priority for most people.
The warming computer mouse or heated computer mouse plugs into an USB port and heats to soothe an overworked or cold mouse hand. This is an ideal gift for the person who works in a chilly office or in a warehouse. Plus, sitting at the computer on a cold winter's night can be chilly creating a cold mouse hand. Without cranking up the room thermostat, the computer user can plug in an USB warm mouse instead. This will truly save on heating bills.
Other heated computer gadgets include a mouse pad with a warming surface. The mouse pad's surface doesn't get hot, it provides a steady flow of warmth to keep the surface comfortable for the mouse hand. Another product is the warming ergonomic keyboard pad. The heated keyboard pad is placed in front of the keyboard and produces a resting place for the wrists at the perfect height over the keys for typing.
The best heated computer gadgets are made with a carbon fiber heating element to produce healthy infrared heat. Your geek will love you for helping them create a healthy computer work area. Not only does infrared heat soothe overworked computer hands, it's a proactive approach to computer hand-injury prevention.
