Open source hardware gift guide!
Looking to give gifts this year that are open source? Here’s our “Open Source Hardware” gift guide. Open source 3D printers, TV-turn-off devices, iPod chargers, music players, Wi-Fi companions, educational electronic kits and more.

Maker services and more… A gift guide
This guide is for the makers in your life that like to take photos, build things, learn and take photos… I tried to include a little of everything, as always post up in the comments if I missed a good maker-like service or something that gives all year! – Link.
Gifts – for Makers who like blimps
I like big blimps, I can’t deny… Today’s gift guide is a little different, it’s for the Makers in your life that like blimps. I looked around the web and didn’t see any blimp gift guides, so here’s the first and only that I know of. This year we added our own autonomous blimp kit to the Maker store, I’m in the middle of building one now and it’s a lot of fun – a great gift for youngsters and oldsters – included in this guide is our latest issue with the blimp bot (pictured above from monkyatomc’s photos), the kit, a comprehensive book on airships and some RC controlled blimps – Link.
These little books make the best gifts and stocking stuffers, the latest ones just arrived! Give the gift of conversion, handyman in your pocket, PC, woodworker and the old fave – Pocket Ref- Link.
