If you’re a maker, engineer or any other kind of tech-head, there’s a vast number of great electronics gifts you can choose from. But if you’re not as immersed in maker culture as your partner, kids, friends or family, and you’re looking for the perfect gifts for the makers in your life, we’ve got you covered.
Over on the Arduino Store is a selection of gift guides to help you pick up the perfect stocking stuffers.
If you’re looking to put a few extra bits and pieces under your maker’s tree this year, start here.
Every budget is accounted for. There’s so much choice from components, cases, Arduino boards, shields and sensors, that you could fill a whole fireplace of stockings with this treasure trove of affordable gadgetry.
Here’s the chic side of electronics. All the coolest gear for people who like their projects to have a bit of extra bling.
If you’re looking to impress a maker this holiday, browse through this sensational selection. Pay particular attention to the Oplà IoT Kit (perfect for home automation enthusiasts), CircuitMess Spencer (a kind of DIY Alexa) and the LYRA (for the retro gamers).
It’s a total myth that educational gifts have to be boring! To prove that point, we’ve compiled an educational gift guide. It’s perfect for parents who want something that’ll give their kids a new set of skills or a creative outlet.
You simply can’t go wrong with the Arduino kits if you want to inspire the next generation of makers, artists and engineers. The Starter Kit for newcomers, the Student Kit if they’re already studying STEM subjects, and the Engineering Kit to help them to the next level.
If you’re looking for gifts on the Arduino Store, you probably already know someone who’s dripping with boards, gadgets and bits of tech. Someone who’s always working on a new project, improving old ones or dismantling something to “make it better”.
It’s all pretty high tech here, but this gift guide is for those who ride on the cutting edge. If you’ve heard the words “machine learning” or “intelligent sensing” floating around, take a look here for your gift-giving inspiration.
What you’re looking at are the more powerful kinds of devices. Great for those who are studying or working in high level electronics. You can be sure they’ll be thrilled and astounded if they open a present from you that turns out to be a Nicla Sense ME or a Portenta H7 with machine vision.
Arduino Gift Cards
Still not quite sure what you’re looking for? You’re in luck!
This is the first year that we’ve introduced digital Arduino gift cards. So if you’ve got a maker on your nice list and they’re either too far remote to send something, or you just can’t decide which Arduino goodies they’d love the most, a gift card means they’ll always get what they want.
