Geeky Tech Gifts for the Television Addict You Love
Sometimes, when someone you know is passionate about one part of their lives to a high degree, the best thing you can do is get out of their way. If their habit is ultimately a fun one, you can even support their addiction – provided we’re talking about something relatively harmless like watching television.
If there’s a television addict in your family that’s always been difficult to shop for, this just might be the time you finally figure out a great gift for them – whether you’re researching for their birthday or doing a little extra holiday shopping. Let’s look at some wonderful and outside-the-box ideas for buying your favorite television addict something they’ll really enjoy.
If your television addict is specifically a fan of Doctor Who, then this is the kind of novelty gift that they’ll be able to use over and over again. This USB port hub allows you to use a lot of different inputs and outputs at once, ensuring that your computer never gets overloaded with whatever geek-friendly activities your recipient’s heart may desire. Considering this also doubles as a decoration, it’s almost like you’re given two gifts in one – provided that they already love Doctor Who, of course.
If your television addict really loves to control the TV, giving them this gadget is a little bit like giving them remote control steroids: they’ll never lose control of the television. In fact, this gadget is great at sending signals to a TV from up to 400 feet away. And since you can jam other remote controls, this little piece of technology actually allows them to feel like a TV hacker. Just beware: if you already have trouble wrestling away the remote from your favorite television addict, you’ll never be able to pry this one away from their fingers.
If your favorite television addict can’t get away from TV not because it’s a TV but because of the content, then perhaps they won’t mind getting a little bit more mobile with their lives if they have a way to access TV from their laptop. That’s exactly the service the Viewmy.tv Gadgets offers, allowing users to essentially turn their laptop into a television away from home. This is great for frequent travelers who are on their laptop more than they’re on their TV…but hate downloading new content and would prefer watching programs live. This is a good gadget to have for news addicts who want to keep up to date with their favorite television news anchors even if they’re not near a TV.
Browse through these geeky tech gifts and try to figure out which one most matches the personality of the person you’re buying it for. Do they like controlling the TV? Then the remote is right for them. Do they love a particular show? Then the Doctor Who gift – or another similarly-themed gift with a different TV show as its inspiration – might be right.
