Let's face it. Web developers are geeks. But that's okay! Who wants to be normal? As I always tell the children - "Geeks rule the world". The problem is that "normal" people don't know what to buy us for Christmas. That's why we always end up with "Photoshop 6 For Dummies". They'll say in a rickety old voice, "It's a little old, sonny - but I got a good deal on it."

  • .NET Magazine Subscription

    As an American, I hate how the greatest web design magazines all
    seem to come from Europe - resulting in a high subscription price that I
    can't justify. This makes it a perfect gift

  • XBOX 360

    It's common knowledge that web developers make their way from screen
    to screen. We might say, "Man I need a break from work. Wanna go to a
    movie?" Though videogames may not be everyone's cup a tea, there's a
    high likelihood that a web developer will enjoy them. Though yours truly
    might prefer Mario Galaxy or Zelda, it seems that XBOX 360 currently
    stands as the "gamers platform."

  • Macbook Pro

    No one can deny how "dead sexy" these laptops are. You can't hide
    from the huge price either! But if you have the money and want to dazzle
    your loved one, this will do the trick! Make sure you shop for a good

  • Coda

    For the mac enthusiast, you'll have trouble finding a more fluid
    code editor than Coda. If he or she doesn't own it already, buy it!

  • IPOD Touch

    Mac user or not, you won't find a better media player for the price.
    But be a trooper and upgrade to the 16 gig model.

  • The Non-Designer's Design Book

    This book is for anyone who has to design a newsletter, job ad,
    flyer, business card, memo, report or whatever, but has no idea what
    separates good design from bad. Except, of course, that the first looks
    clear, professional, sophisticated and right, and the second is an ugly,
    unreadable mess.

  • PHP Solutions

    For the aspiring PHP developer, or the experienced one for that
    matter, this book will help a great deal

  • Don't Make Me Think

    Years old, but still relevant. Many consider this book to be their
    web dev bible. If your loved one doesn't own it, buy it.

  • Iomega 1 TB External Harddrive

    You can never have too much harddrive space! Nowadays, don't bother
    getting a smaller capacity. You can purchase up to 1 TB of space for
    under $150. He'll love it

  • Wacom PC Tablet

    We all want one because we all can't afford it! But if you have the
    pennies and want to see a "grown man cry like a baby", this will do the

  • Apple 24 Inch LED Cinema Display

    Another contender in the "blow your socks off category" is the
    beautiful 24 inch monitor. You won't see him returning this the day

  • The Big Bang Theory - Season 1

    Obviously, it's impossible to determine the television preference of
    a complete stranger. However, I know many, many web developers that
    adore this show (including myself).

  • The Office

    You'll have trouble finding someone who doesn't like The Office.
    Both the US and UK versions are fantastic and will fit quite nicely into
    his or her collection.

  • Nintendo Wii

    Though irresponsible waggle can potentially destroy half of the
    items on this list, it's hard to deny how enjoyable a well executed Wii
    game can be. And come on folks - they're remaking Punch
    That's reason enough. If you grew up in the 80s, the updated
    music will give you goosebumps.

  • Learning jQuery

    Learning jQuery is the best book available on the obvious subject.
    If your loved one is learning this library, buy it! (Shameless
    plug...Have you check out the "jQuery
    for Absolute Beginners"
    daily video tutorials over on the
    ThemeForest blog?

  • Logitech Cordless Laser Mouse

    Wouldn't we all like one of these? We touch the dang things enough!

  • Bose Around-the-Ear Headphones

    Exceptional sound, lightweight, 5 foot cord....gosh I want one!

  • The PHP Cookbook

    "This book is absolutely packed with quick solutions to common
    obstacles or ideas in PHP. The chapters on security are worth their
    weight in gold, as you'll learn how to properly protect your site
    against unauthorised use."

  • Adobe CS4 Creative Suite

    We'll all eventually upgrade to CS4, if we haven't already. It costs
    a whopping $1400 to purchase the entire suite. But how quickly will it
    pay for itself?

  • Notebook Engraver

    I came across this one via a tweet from Collis. Consider purchasing an
    engraved notebook for your designer friends. You can engrave images,
    drawings...pretty much anything.

Found by Jason and posted by me. Info was found at Here

This made me laugh a lot LOL
