It’s no secret that we love tech here at the Consumer Voice and so it makes sense that we bring you our ultimate Gifts for Geeks Guide.
If it’s good enough for Captain Sparkles, it’s good enough for us. The ANKI Overdrive is absolutely awesome. This won’t be the last you see of it as we’ll be vlogging about it live but for now, trust us when we say this is 2015’s best buy. Forget the balance boards that set on fire, buy a gift that you can all play together!
Gameband+Minecraft – winner in Dads Choice 2015 Toy Awards is perfect for anyone who loves Minecraft.
What Mitchell says, “it’s great to take Minecraft with me as my mum doesn’t like me being on the PC too long at a time. This way I can still be involved and play but I can also do other stuff outside. My friends are quite jealous that I’ve got one this year!”

Kano Computer Kit
Build Your Own Computer
Kano is a computer kit designed for 6-14 year olds. It’s almost like 21st century LEGO in that you get to build the computer from scratch using simple instructions and then code any number of your own creations, from games like Minecraft to art to any device you connect it to!
With coding now in the school curriculum, it’s a really nice way for kids to build their digital skills and be inspired to create without being instructed in a classroom environment. And it’s great fun for parents to get involved with too, so is a really nice and fun Christmas gift to spend some quality time.
What our editor says, “this is an amazing gift for kids over 8 as it gives them full control over making their own computer. It’s even a great gift for an adult exploring raspberry pi and more, and I’ve stocked up to make sure all my children, nieces and nephews benefit from Kano this Christmas. In my opinion there is no better gift for kids in 2015.”
