2020 Holiday Gift Guide: 13 Ideas for Techs and Staff

Editor’s note: This edition of Tech Talk will appear in the December issue of SSI, but we wanted to post it online in time for Black Friday.

I guess you can say that 2020 has been one hell of a year. Probably the craziest year of all time. It is not often that you have to attempt to continue your work through one of the worst pandemics in history.

That’s why this year everyone needs to pay special attention to the techs and staff that have endured and are dedicated to their company, staff, co-workers and, most of all, their customers.

It is that fun time of the year again when we can take a moment and reward others for supreme dedication to their work. To help you with this endeavor I have selected 13 new and exciting holiday gift suggestions for techs and staff.

Make sure to check out last year’s edition for even more ideas. Have fun, and I hope you enjoy the selections.

A few final tips and suggestions for this holiday. Don’t forget the No. 1 gift of all times is CASH! If you want to make sure all in your group get something they might want and use, pick out a group of gifts, don’t wrap them. Then have a drawing and let them pick their most desirable gift.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and happy New Year to all; 2021 will be better for sure.
