Ideas for Linux gifts this Christmas 2017

Christmas Tux with gift

Christmas is comingSome are already counting down the days until the new year, all with hope that the new 2017 is better than this 2016, which brings more hope, prosperity and happiness. A time undoubtedly full of magic and very familiar where many are possessed by the spirit of Christmas and takes them back to childhood. Therefore, between dinners, decorations and wishes, the gifts that we usually give to acquaintances and loved ones cannot be missed. And from LxA we are going to give some ideas ...

Of course we propose tech related gifts, since it is a blog that deals with this topic. Many times we do not know what to give, especially those who do not master these fields do not know very well what to give to those who are passionate about technology. Well, whether you know or don't know about this topic, but you want to give someone a gift related to the world of Linux and free software, here we are going to give you some interesting ideas. Another option is that you give it to yourself, of course.

Our proposals are:

  • Accessories: There are penguin-shaped pendrives, if you want a small detail it could be this. There are also stores like where they sell figures (they also personalize them) about the world of free software and part of the money raised goes to free projects or the FSF. There are also stuffed animals of Tux, and similar ones in toy stores. The possibilities are quite great, really.
  • Clothing: You can also give personalized clothing as a gift. In Pampling there are geeks t-shirts, but if you want a more personalized one about the world of Linux and free software (or computer science in general), you can send your idea to this site so they can take it out on clothes or stickers ...
  • Books and magazines: In your favorite bookstore or online sites like Agapea and Amazon you can find books on technology in abundance, a good option to give away these days.
  • Gift cards or subscriptions: More options, give away gift cards or subscriptions like Spotify Premium, Steam GiftCard to give away games from the Valve store for Linux, or something more generic like Amaozn Gift Card.
  • Hardware: in terms of hardware, you can buy from Arduino boards and accessories, Raspberry Pi, Steam Controller, Steam Link, Google Chromecast, Steam Machine, to desktop computers, consoles such as the Steam Machine, or laptops if it is a more special gift or between various.

    I would like to get a Tux plush to give to my girlfriend for these dates. Does anyone know where to get it?

    I forgot to say it, Congratulations on the spectacular image you put up. It's great. I already downloaded it and made it my wallpaper. It really is sweet because I have a pet kitten. Greetings!

    You have forgotten the current rage for TV boxes or kodi.

    The most Linux is an openelec box, but being a better gift is an Android TV.

    There are them from € 25 with 1 Gb of RAM and 8 of ROM, but better those of 2 Gbs that only cost about € 30. NEXBOX on Gearbest or Amazon, but if you want something more style, the same hardware, the Xiaomi boxes with a design controller, the same hardware and about € 5-10 extra are great.
