My family consists of gamers, techies or geeks. And I LOVE IT! That’s why this Holiday Gift Guide For the Tech & Gamer is probably my favorite.
My 13yr old is obsessed with FortNite and my Oldest loves the racing games like Grand Theft Auto 5 or Forza. My husband loves Final Fantasy Games (he pretty much loves all of them) and my obsession with The Elder Scrolls Series or Assassin’s Creed.
Gaming aside, I love tech.
ALL things tech! If I could have everything, I would. I’d probably have all of the latest computers, tablets, cell phones, smart devices, etc. My husband always rolls his eyes whenever I talk about swapping out the old out dated thermostats for new smart thermostats.
Now, the geeky? We’re Harry Potter, Supernatural, Marvel, Archie Comics, and Disney geeks. We own just about every book and movies out of series. My youngest LOVES reading, well used to love reading before FortNite took over his life! (Ha ha)
Below you’ll find some of our favorite geeky things, or things that will help you keep geekin’ on. (Hydration is important yo!)
2018 Holiday Gift Guide For the Tech & Gamer
Gotta keep the gamer/techy hydrated. I have this bottle (in a purple/pinkish color) and I ABSOLUTELY Love it! When I’m gaming, I tend to forget to eat or drink. With this 40oz bottle, you at least have a little time before you have to refill. And that’s usually when it’s time to hit the bathroom.

Anyone who plays FortNite needs this.
You could probably make them floss, do the hype or even the Orange Justice…. Why I know these is beyond me. Send help in boxes of wine please!

Okay, so I’m putting this one on here because it may, or may not be, the phone that I’m kind of swooning over. Remember, I told you I’m a HUGE latest techy person. (Yeah I know the Note 9 just came out, but I LOVE LOVE the S9’s look, features, etc.).
