So, what are we waiting for, here are 5 surprising 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
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, like starting from popular programming languages like Java and Python to advanced technology, like 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.
One of my readers gifted me the Machine Learning A-Z: Hands-On Python & R In Data Science, and I simply loved it. If your husband is interested in Data Science, Machine Learning, or Artificial intelligence, then you can gift that too.
If you know what your husband or boyfriend likes, then you can choose some excellent courses from Udemy; otherwise, I just bought a gift card for them.
Many programmers like myself love both music and movies. I love to watch a movie on my PC and laptop, and I have 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 entire family can enjoy this subscription.
The programmer just loves big screens, and they keep getting bigger and bigger, but I think this 34″ curved, UltraWide monitor is only 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.
Every programmer needs a good keyboard. I like mechanical keyboards 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 the Amazon Echo is the best gift, it is 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 that is worth it for a programmer husband or family man is Pluralsight Annual Membership, it’s precious, 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, like 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.
