How do you know if you’re shopping for a computer geek?

How can you tell if you are gift shopping for a hardcore computer enthusiast? There are telltale signs ... If they own multiple computers, scan the Best Buy flyer every week for computer deals, or have a desktop cluttered with accessories like external hard drives and Bluetooth mice, then you’re probably looking at a computer geek. If they use their computer for everything possible, including editing their photos, printing recipes, and researching their next vacation, there’s a pretty good chance you’re dealing with a computer geek.

If it turns out that, yes, that is a computer geek on your list, that’s great news for you, because there are many great computer related gifts to choose from.

The best geek computer gifts for a computer enthusiast

The best gifts for computer enthusiasts are those that appeal to their love of PCs and help them to use their computer to do everything better.

The latest and greatest hardware makes the ultimate computer gifts. From blazing fast new CPUs to innovative form factors and 4K displays, a new laptop or desktop computer will wow any computer enthusiast. Fans of PC gaming are always hoping for a blazing fast new gaming laptop, a powerful new gaming tower PC, or a virtual reality headset.

Don’t forget the accessories and peripherals. If someone spends hours painstakingly editing family photos on their PC, imagine their reaction if they were to receive a new photo printer, with prints that can rival the output of photo labs. A music or movie fan would never say no to an external hard drive, with the capacity to expand their library. Nothing makes PC video better than a big, 4K monitor. There are also many computer gadget gifts that offer a big win without a big expenditure, including Bluetooth keyboards and mice, computer speakers, and thumb drives. Then there’s a UPS, the uninterruptible power supply that lets them keep using their PC, even during a power outage.

How would they use these cool computer gifts?

The one thing you can count on is that a computer enthusiast is going to make full use of any computer related gifts. Everything is leveraged to make their setup and their computing experience better.

A new computer means the old one becomes a backup, a “new” PC for the kids, or maybe a media server. A new external drive becomes media storage, or on-demand local data backup. That’s the great thing about true computer geeks—you really can’t go wrong with computer gadget gifts, because they are always looking for upgrades, replacements and new options to leverage technology.

If they love productivity, they’ll love these computer gifts

Are you looking for a gift for a special someone who isn’t necessarily focused on their computer itself, but is all about leveraging their PC for productivity? There are some big win gift possibilities here as well. One of the biggest of all is a widescreen monitor. Being able to work on two pages, side-by-side, is a huge productivity win. Another idea is replacing a compact keyboard with a full-sized computer keyboard, with a numeric keypad. That’s a big productivity win for anyone who works with numbers. Even little touches like a premium mousepad can make their computing experience more productive.
