Unique Birthday Gift Ideas For The Tech Geek

Whether you are male or female, when it comes to birthday’s, getting anything that is high tech can be very exciting. Most people have at least one gadget, usually a mobile phone, and gifts such as a tablet or digital watch can really light up a person’s eyes, and put a big smile on their face.

However, when it comes to buying a birthday gift for someone who is a bit of a geek, and already has all of the obvious gadgets, it can be difficult to find something to buy them. Yes you can get them a voucher, but that is a bit boring, and other people will probably do that as well.

The Places Your Cellphone Will Go

Cell phones have revolutionized the way that we talk to each other. Unfortunately they have not revolutionized the way that we talk in the car, and with new laws coming out yearly to discourage talking/texting while driving it can seem impossible to take a call when you’re on the road. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options on the market right now that make it possible to talk on the phone without using your hands at all. Below we are going to talk about a few of the most popular options.

Windshield/Dash Holders

These are the most popular types of holders, because they make it very easy to keep your eyes on the road while allowing you to remain attached to your phone. For those of us that have trouble with directions, this type of holder is ideal for when you want to use your GPS or Google Maps to figure out just where you are going. It also makes hands free talking much easier, since most speakers can pick up your voice from that kind of distance. Just make sure that you don’t place this apparatus too far off to one side, because you want to make sure that your eyes are always on the road!

CD Slot Holders

It not only puts your phone at eye level so you can see when calls/texts come in; but allows you to play music straight from your Apple or Android device. No more listening to the same five songs on loop from that boring local radio station for you!

A Cup Holder Holder

This is a great option for those that would like to focus on the road and not take too many calls.

The clothes line during autumn should include, long but thick and silky in texture for evening gowns and dresses. Such clothes should have either one long cut in the center of the dress, from the knees to the feet, or else two long cuts on either side of the dress from the knees to the feet. Having one single short cut from half way of the leg on the left side to the feet is a good and unique outcome during the autumns. A long dress with an umbrella cut design would be preferably chosen by most women during the fall. Gowns with netted sleeves or with netted coats also would be chosen by the sophisticated to show off on the dance floor. Clothes made of artificial wool like short skirts and coats would match up well with transparent stocking. Such clothes add to the personality of a lady. These clothes should be chosen and worn by women working in offices. Jeans on the other hand, should be of smooth materials but should be thick. They would look perfect with dark colored tops. Dark colors like navy blue, purple, brown, and bottle green should be used for most of the fashionable clothing line introduced during the fall.

Shoes are the most important part of fashion. Clogs, Heeled Loafers, Wedges, Army boots etc. would look perfect with skirts and jeans. Sandals with appropriate high heels would be perfect for both long gowns and dresses. Sneakers, on the other hand, would look perfect only with jeans. One must be very careful while choosing shoes; else they would create a fashion blunder.

Must have Autumn Accessories

Accessories and shoes go hand in hand, without accessories a person, especially a woman would look really plain. As decors are important for a house to make it look grand and beautiful, autumn accessories too are decors for women, as they add to the beauty of women and make them look beautiful and gorgeous. Danglers with heavy neck wears look perfect with gowns and dresses. Bracelets too can be worn with gowns but it depends on the sleeves on the gowns. Bracelets can only be worn if the sleeves are short enough for the bracelet to be seen. Tops are only to be worn with shirts and jeans or with skirts with over coats.

Fashion introduced during autumn is not at all expensive. Clothes, jewelry and shoes can easily be bought within budget. This is the only reason for women to follow fashion, and to show off with it.
