SMARTS & PARTS
Holiday Giſt s for the Tech Enthusiasts in Your Life
Editor's Note: If you go to the online version of this column, you will
fi nd each of the chosen product names linked. We hope this saves time
when you fi nd something of interest.
IT'S THE HOLIDAY SEASON, time for managers, bosses
and owners to take a special moment to reward personnel
who have done their best to keep the business going
through these rough times.
As has become tradition in this space, we're highlighting
tech-related giſt s that are most likely to put a big smile on the
faces of even the toughest person to fi nd something unique for.
I have tried to fi nd a mix of some very techie giſt s and some
more holiday-type items. Enjoy.
Looking Sharp
Blade Sharpener ($15):We have always selected Leatherman
for their amazing multi-tools. Did you know they make an
inexpensive blade-sharpening tool? This device comes with a
carbide sharpener, ceramic sharpener and diamond-coated
sharpening rod specially designed for serrated blades.
Rechargeable Waterproof Pocket Flashlight BBM6411 ($27):
This is one very compact fl ashlight from Blackfi re/Klein Tools.
It is rechargeable and comes with a dual-direction pocket clip,
giving you hands-free lighting by clipping it onto your hat.
32717 Precision Screwdriver Set with Case ($30): Suggested
by James Tilley, this is another handy tool giſt from Klein Tools.
The kit comes with 39 bits in a handy clear plastic box. The bits
have strong magnets. Kits include an extension shaſt for hardto-reach
places.
LED Beanie with Light and Wireless Headphones ($20): This
is a must for almost any winter-weather service tech: a unisex
Bluetooth LED beanie with light and wireless headphones.
Made by Keains.
Flipper Zero ($170): Suggested by Dustin Snyder. Labeled by
Flipper as " the multi-tool device for geeks, " this gadget will
keep even the techiest person busy for hours. The idea of
Flipper Zero is to combine all the hardware tools you'd need for
exploration and development on the go.
Mini Portable Oven ($40): Suggested by Mark Anderson.
Brought to you from a company called Hot Logic, this is a miniature
personal heated lunchbox. Now, you can have hot meals
in your service van - no more cold sandwiches.
Making Life Easier
Hook-and-Loop Tape Dispenser ($40): Suggested by Tim
Daugherty. Brought to you by Klein Tools. Every tech can always
use an extra hand when laying down and bundling cable. This
device should come in very handy and make life a little easier.
Ohm's Law Mug ($10): What better and more novel way to remind
all techs of the importance of Ohm's law? This novel mug
has the famous Ohm's law wheel diagram on it. A great conversation
piece, at least.
Alarm Technician Giſt Funny Appreciation T-Shirt ($20):
Brought to you by Amazon merchandising. The shirt states, " I
never dreamed I would be a super cool alarm technician. But
here I am, rockin' it. " A fun giſt , for sure.
Titan Deep Freeze 30-Can Zipperless Cooler ($92): Brought to
you by Arctic Zone. Deep Freeze high-performance insulation
with radiant-heat barrier refl ects heat rather than absorbing
it. Patented " fl ip open " zipperless lid allows for quick access to
food and drinks. Features FDA-compliant HardBody liner with
removable SmartShelf.
Rambler 35oz. Straw Mug ($42): Another famous mug from
YETI. A nice, big 35oz. Supremely insulated and made with an
elevated handle and a cup-holder-compatible design. 18/8 stainless
steel, it resists dents and drops, and the double-wall vacuum
insulation keeps drinks cold to the last drop.
Technician Toolbox Ornament ($15): A nice Christmas tree ornament
that says it all for techs. Brought to you Etsy. Make sure
to get it customized with name and year.
Other Popular Gift Suggestions
Here are some other popular suggestions for holiday giſt s for
techs and staff members:
■ Money: A cash-money bonus is easily the most popular giſt for
a job well done. Infl ationary times are tough for all this year, so
any extra funds to help enjoy the holidays will be appreciated.
■ Giſt cards: They are a nice way to pay for a special night out
on the town or that new, hand-selected giſt .
■ For those techs who have gone above and beyond, an all-expenses-paid
trip to a warm, sandy beach might make these
holidays extra special.
■ Don't forget to throw that company party - with giſt s, of
course. Make up some trivia games about the company and
its history. SSI
