If you’re looking for a gift for a Raspberry Pi enthusiast, I recommend the Prototyping Pi Plate Kit for Raspberry Pi, available in the Maker Shed. It snaps on top of the Raspberry Pi and makes the GPIO pins easily accessible on the generous prototyping area or to the screw terminals along the edges. It’s a solder-it-yourself kit, but even a novice won’t have trouble populating the board with the included components. This product is perfect to take your project to the next step after you’ve breadboarded it. Soldering your components in place will keep those connections secure and make the project more compact. I heartily recommend this inexpensive accessory for any Raspberry Pi enthusiast; it has come in quite handy for my own projects.
