3 Best Gifts for Programmers and Developers in Christmas and New Year

Happy New year 2017 and Seasons greetings to everyone. May god bless you with success and whatever you want this year. This is festival time and I have a couple of friends asking me what to gift to a programmer friend or colleague? This is a common confusion you face when buying a gift for tech geeks, software engineers, programmers, and web developers. Everybody wants that their gift is well received and make the person excited and happy. Being a Java programmer myself, I am going to suggest a couple of things which I have recently bought for my programmer friends, colleagues, and relatives. If you are in doubt, you can take some inspiration from my list. At times, I have really spent a good amount of time searching for gifts for fellow programmers and I know, we'll keep doing it, so expect this list to grow.

You can also suggest what gift you have bought or gifted to your programmer friend and his response. This way we can make this article more useful and one-stop resource for gift ideas for programmers and developers.

I am sure you have bought some gifts for your fellow developers in past, you can share them too. This will really help us to buy better gifts for our programmer friend, a gift which is worth of their money and useful for programmers.

Best Gifts for Programmers

1) Bose SoundLink Mini 2 Bluetooth Speaker
Most of the Programmers have a good taste of music and they love the high-quality sound. What can be better than a Bose soundLink Mini 2 speaker? It's portable, looks classy and has incredible sound quality. Most importantly it has Bluetooth connectivity so you can connect to your iPhone, iPad, PC, laptop or even TV. I love watching movies on my big screen monitor with Bose sound link mini 2 speaker sound. It's incredible, probably the best gift you can give to your programmer friend this year.

Alternatively, you can also gift Bose SoundLink around-ear wireless headphones II, that would also be an awesome gift.

2) iPad Mini
Programmers like gadget and what could be better than an apple gadget like iPad mini. It's a nice compromise between price and power. An Apple iPad mini can fit in the pocket and can be incredibly useful for Programmers. They can listen to programming podcast, can read books on the go and can also play games. I am sure your programmer friend will love this gift.

3) Bundle of great Java Books
Amazon offers a nice bundle of good programming books e.g. a bundle of Effective Java, Java Concurrency in Practice, Refactoring, improving the design of Existing code and Head first Design Pattern. This is I guess the best gift to any Java programmer.

That's all in this list of what to gift your Java programmer friend or colleague. If you really have deep pocket and want to give something big, then you can also consider game consoles like XBox or Nintendo PS3. Programmers love video games. One again, a very Happy New Year 2017 and make sure you do your new year resolutions, I am coming back with mine in couple of days:-)
