Top 5 Amazing Gifts for Programmers, Coders, and Software Developers

If you are planning for a surprise gift to your programmer boyfriend and husband on this holiday season e.g. on Christmas or New Year or maybe on his next birthday, but not sure what to gift, then you have come to the right place. In this article, I am going to share some of the best gifts every programmer wish for. To be honest with you, buying a gift is easy but finding the right gift is very tough. I have spent countless hours on the internet to find a perfect gift for one of my colleague's husband and this article is a result of that research. The general perception of programmers is that they are a nerd, they love book, gadgets, cool stuff, music, but the perfect gift is something which not only provides the enjoyment but also the value.

If you gift something to your boyfriend and husband which he uses every day, he will remember you for sure and will definitely appreciate everytime he use your gift. Programmers also love games and funny gifts, though it depends on person to person.

If you have a really close friend who is software engineer or coder then you can also buy fun gifts for them e.g. T-shirts with funny programming quotes or coffee mug or water bottle with geeky quotes.

So, what are we waiting for, here are 5 amazing things you can gift to your programmer boyfriend and of-course husband.



Top 5 Gift Ideas for Programmer Husband or BoyFriend

Here are a couple of gifts you can give to your programmer husband or boyfriend

PluralSight Annual Membership
PluralSight is one of the best websites for technical courses. It got more than 5000 courses on many programming technologies e.g. Java, JavaScript,.NET, Python etc. Programmer love to learn new things and I am sure your programmer boyfriend will appreciate this gift every time he uses it. There is a good chance, he might already be a member, but if he is not, this gift is certainly worth giving to him.

Gift a course from Udemy
Programmers love online courses, including me and Udemy is the biggest collection of online courses. It has got over 55,000 online courses to learn anything e.g. starting from popular programming language like Java and Python to advanced technology e.g. Big Data, Automation, Cloud Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine learning, Robotics etc.

Udemy allows you to send a course or a gift card to your programmer friend, you just need to enter his email while purchasing the course.  My wife gifted me Blockchain and Bitcoin Fundamentals and simply loved it. If your husband is interested in crypto-currencies then you can gift that too.

Amazon Prime Video Membership
Many programmers like myself love both music and movies. I love to watch a movie on my PC and laptop and I have a got an Amazon Prime Video Membership, with 10.99 USD per month, this is one of the cheapest gifts you can give to him.

Btw, it's not just useful for him but for yourself as well as for the whole family. Amazon has the biggest collection of HD videos including cartoons for kids so the whole family can enjoy this subscription.



Asus Curved 34-inch UltraWide QHD (3440 x 1440)
The programmer just loves big screens and they keep getting bigger and bigger but I think this 34" curved, UltraWide monitor is just best for programmers. By the way, the big screen just doesn't use for coding, you can also play games and watch movies on them. Both you and your partner will simply love this. If you want to top up, you can also gift Amazon Prime Video membership along with that.

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
Every programmer needs a good keyboard. I like a mechanical keyboard because they feel so good when you type on them. Logitech is one of the best companies for peripheral devices, so to me, this keyboard is a great buy. In addition to being a fantastic mechanical keyboard, it also has a bunch of really cool gaming features, so I’m totally sold on it

That's all about some of the most amazing gifts you can buy for your programmer boyfriend, colleague, or husband. For a family man, like me, I think Amazon Echo is the best gift, it not only useful for him but also for the whole family. It will keep him engaged with custom API but also be helpful for you to create your shopping list.

Another gift which is worth for a programmer husband or family man is Pluralsight Annual Membership, it's really valuable and he can use it to learn whatever he wants to. If you have kids and you want to teach them coding, you can use this membership for that. Pluralsight has many coding courses for kids.

You can also give some funny gifts to software engineers e.g. fun games like Twister or Jenga, they like it, I can say that from my experience.  Btw, if you need more ideas, you can also check my earlier post about 10 gift ideas for programmers.
