Wondering what gift to get for that special dev in your life? Or are you a special dev who is tired of getting ugly sweaters and is looking for a not so subtle way of asking for cooler gifts this year? Then this video is for you!
Holiday shopping can be tricky, so we asked our friends on Twitter what gifts they’d recommend getting for devs and we received some excellent answers.
Ashan Parwez recommended pet toys, to keep pets busy while there owners are at home working. Luckily there are tons of cool and nerdy pet toys out there to keep the owner and the pets happy.
Jason Cosper bumped it up a notch by recommending Black Blood Of The Earth, a sort of super coffee concetrate by Funranium Labs. It’s a bit pricier than Death Wish coffee, but you can get it with cool Atomic Robo branding, so that’s kind of keen.
My personal gift suggestion is to get a yo-yo! I’ve talked about my love of yo-yos before, but I think yo-yoing is a great hobby for anyone who spends a lot of time in front of the computer. It’s not exactly exercise, but it does get you to take a break from the screen and move around a little bit while your mind works on a creative new skill. I’d recommend picking up a Skyva yo-yo for $20. I’ll drop a link in the description as well as one of my tutorial videos for beginners.
That’s it for this week’s News Drop. Got a great gift suggestion we missed? Share it in the comments below or tweet at us at @thetorquemag on Twitter.
