Give the family techie something to talk about!

Since the last minute search for the perfect gift can take a megabyte out of holiday cheer, let there be peace on earth with Motherboard Gifts & More.

This Chicago-area firm founded in 1991 announces new last minute geek gifts for the holidays that are ideal for most any holiday budget. And dimensions make many items perfect holiday stocking stuffers.

Even better, the products – business card cases, clipboards, key rings and much more – are guaranteed to conquer the Grinch in any techie's heart. Why? They are all created from reclaimed boards originally designed for computers, televisions, and other electronics.

Motherboard's gifts are as visually stunning as a tree decked in lights and tinsel: Each item exploits the intrinsic beauty of technology. They are also fully functional products that often inspire one iconic word of approval: Cool. The gifts make a definitive statement – I'm technology friendly. And when shown at a party or business meeting, they can make the room hum like a children's choir on the night before Christmas.

Circuit boards may suggest sharp edges and bumpy surfaces. Not so of Motherboard holiday gifts. Each is created from material never marred by circuitry soldering. In fact, the boards were never actually installed because they are defective, or deemed obsolete, or part of an unclaimed order. Another reason the product line is December cool: the colors and patterns of boards vary, making each gift item virtually one-of-a-kind.

Dreaming of a Byte Christmas    

From cuff links and cigar cases to money clips and nightlights, Motherboard boasts nearly fifty products available in several colors. And a new gift-wrapping service is available for a small fee.

The bestseller is the business card case – destined to be high on the wish lists of future geeksters. The slim, metal card case with a circuit board top holds 10-15 cards and fits easily in a pocket or briefcase. Case dimensions are a sleek 2 1/4 x 3 5/8 inches.
The business card case can even be engraved with a name for a personalized touch.

The clipboard may be too big to stuff in a stocking, but its large, flat surface makes it one of the firm's most visually seductive products. Certain to inspire questions – Is that a real board? Does it really work? – the board stands out dramatically in contrast to snow white paper. Three sizes are available. The two largest accommodate standard 8 ½- x 11-inch and legal-sized paper. A mini board is ideal for smaller note pads.

Coasters may not seem particularly unique, but this six-piece set will look festive under mugs of egg nog or cocoa. The circular 3.75-inch diameter circuit coasters are fun, fully functional, and a snazzy conversation piece. The set arrives in a storage tin with a circuit board top.

Holiday Gift suggestions also include spiral journals, photo albums, picture frames, wall and desktop clocks, and even cuff links – for the debonair geek – round out the catalog. The money clip is particularly hip: it makes paper currency look like a brand-new idea.
The firm has gone to great lengths to find the best inks to alter the native color of the motherboards, which arrive at the manufacturing plant in a variety of colors.    

Geeks will rejoice when they open a Motherboard gift. An epiphany enhanced by the fact that each item is made from recycled material that otherwise would be tossed into a landfill. That should jingle some bells.
