Have an engineer friend or relative who just invited you to his birthday party? You’re probably out of gift ideas because isn’t that why you’re here? Well, the best gifts for an engineer (in case he/she is still a student) will definitely be, full marks in viva without actually answering the viva. Or if he/she is a professional, maybe a full week of leave from the office. But, that’s not up to you. What you can’t do though, is read the list below & select from the range of products that we’ve already shortlisted as the best gifts for engineers as a recommendation for you.
The Latest Flagship Smartphone
If your budget is high, gifting an engineer the latest flagship smartphone from a reputed brand is a great idea. You can gift them the latest iPhone or the latest Pixel for example. Also, coming to slightly lower range flagships, we have OnePlus, ASUS, etc. There is no doubt that a flagship smartphone can make an engineer happy unless he already has a better one.
A Good Pair of Headphones
If your budget isn’t that high then, you can gift a good pair of headphones. Depending on what that specific person likes, you can get either an in-ear or an over-the-ear headphone. If they own the compatible hardware, you can even buy the ones that support Hi-res audio. These won’t cost a fortune but still, are damn great gifts.
A Good Tech Backpack
Engineers generally own a lot of tech stuff that they carry around. But, regular backpacks are not enough for the job. So, you can be the savior & gift a Tech Backpack to solve the problem. These backpacks generally have a lot of compartments, one or multiple USB ports & are well protected against water splashes.
If you still are short on budget, then try to get something little cheaper. This can include watches, coffee mugs with cool texts on them, T-shirts with engineering related text on them, etc.
At the end of the day, the only thing matters that whatever you’re gifting, reflects how much you love them. That’s what they will really be happy about. So, doesn’t matter what your budget is. There is no single approach on gifts for engineers so, just go for it. Also, if your friend is a big time Geek, then you can give him something that will definitely make him go crazy. Remember for an Engineer that can reduce stress is the best gift you can give.
