If dad’s birthday and your wedding anniversary are a breeze, gift ideas for the family geek makes your hard drive crash, Motherboard Gifts & More is your new best friend.
The Chicago-area firm founded in 1991 specializes in the manufacture of high-end, quality gifts.

Motherboard’s visually stunning gifts exploit the intrinsic beauty of technology. They are also fully functional products that often inspire an iconic word of approval: Cool!
Each item makes a definitive statement — I’m technology friendly. And when shown at a party or business meeting, they can make the room rock with a strong “I want one too!” vibe.

In fact, the boards were never actually installed because they are defective, deemed obsolete, or part of an unclaimed order. Another reason the product line is tres cool: the colors and patterns of circuit boards vary, making each gift item virtually one-of-a-kind.

The business card case can even be engraved with a name to create a personalized touch.
The clipboard is also a favorite item. And due to its large, flat surface, among the most visually seductive. Certain to inspire questions — Is that a real circuit board? Does it really work? — the nifty board stands out dramatically in contrast to white paper. Three sizes are available. The two largest accommodate standard 8
