Dec 18, 2012

Sometimes it can be hard to find the right gift, especially for tech enthusiasts who often go out and get everything for themselves before you can even ask what they want for Christmas! Here are some techy gift ideas, at various price ranges to suit your need.

Avengers DVD

The feel good action movie this summer was definitely The Avengers. The movie pleased the old geek crowd while also make new fans. Also, there is nothing more techy than Ironman's awesome suit!

Wii U

It's not every year that we a new video game console. The last one was the PlayStation 3, which came out in 2006! The Wii U kicks off a new generation of gaming with a cool gamepad that has a built-in touch screen that you can use to play certain games without a TV! It doesn't hurt that there are lots of great games already out for it, including Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendo Land.

Digital Camera

Cameras are one of those electronic devices that keep getting better with each passing year. Almost anyone could do with an upgrade. For under $100, you can pick up a Canon Powershot A2300 or A800, which are some of the better point and shoot cameras at that price range. If you are willing to spend more, take a look at the Panasonic Lumix ZS20 14, which gives you the best bang for buck.

eReader

If there is one thing that techies love to do, it's read and browse the internet. The Nook HD and the Kindle Fire HD are the newest eReaders on the market and they will let you do both. The Nook HD also lets you watch videos while the Kindle Fire HD has great Bluetooth support.

iPad Mini

As the newest device coming out of the Apple labs, every techy is dying to get their hands on the iPad Mini. This tablet can do everything that the iPad can, but is smaller and more convenient to carry around.

I'm a perfectionist, but I don't care about outer appearances, which explains why my room is always messy. If you'd pay me 5 bucks a week if I keep it clean every day, then I would definitely clean my room to crisp perfection. Moving on to my 'perfectionism'. Well, I get incredibly frustrated and even start crying if I can't comprehend a lesson or my homework. Last time this happened, I was so angry that I went to bed, hoping that tomorrow, the deal would be cleared up. If someone helps me do something that I can't, I feel defeated and embarrassed, just like the O.P. So I force myself to do my homework alone until I eventually think I get it. When I get mad, I try to distance myself from others and stay in my room, calming down and relaxing to make the anger pass away, unlike many. I don't want to risk getting mad at the others, fearing that it'll make a bad situation in the future. I'd say I'm a good drawer when it comes to anime, so I try to make my pictures really, really, really perfect. This is what I think: Ugh, the eye shape on the right looks weird! What's up with that mouth? It's so hard to draw eyelashes!  I'm going to need to redo the irises. Should I make the nose stand out or not? This face does not look like an anime girl's face! Have I drawn some sort of monster? So, yeah, it does sound like I'm quite the perfectionist, but I'm very lazy and won't blow up in somebody's face because they ruined something I made with such detailed perfection.
