Geek Gift Guide: Boss

I've been wrestling with the ultimate holiday dilemma: do I get my boss a gift this holiday season or not? On the one hand, it's kind of pushy, and she probably doesn't expect it, but on the other hand, she puts up with my tardiness and wild ideas year round. If I do decide to, these are my top picks:

Toothbrush Sanitizer

If your boss is a germaphobe like mine, he or she would probably be tickled pink to get a Toothbrush Sanitizer that uses UV light to eliminate up to 99.9 percent of germs. Get the Toothbrush Sanitizer for $50 from Brookstone.

For two more gift ideas for your boss, just

Smart Find Key Tracker

The Smart Find Key Tracker, $25, will locates your boss' keys with an audible alarm from up to 80 feet away. She'll just have to press the key ring transmitter button and the matching key ring will answer with a loud, 85-decibel alarm from anywhere in her home or office. If you get her this, she'll actually leave the office at six instead of hanging around and looking over everything you do.

Nike iPod Sport Kit

If your boss is the sporty type, she'll love the Nike Sport Kit, which will allow her Nike shoe to talk to her iPod nano. She'll just have to plug the receiver into her iPod nano and place the sensor in her Nike+ shoe. The sensor uses a sensitive accelerometer to measure the user's activity, then wirelessly transfers the data to the receiver on the iPod nano. Get a Nike Sport Kit for $29.

The toothbrush sanitizer is a very ingenious idea. ______________________________________________ I must say, adolescence is one hell of a ride!

Ahhhah, I think I might loose the transmitter as well...but you could keep it in one special place, say near your front door, or on your kitchen counter so you never loose it. I try and keep all my extra keys and necessary gadgets in one cabinet in the kitchen.

OMG, forget my boss, who I hope gets sick from her dirty toothbrush, I'm totally getting that toothbrush cleaner for myself!!! That's really cool. Who knew that UV light could be so helpful?

I sat here seriously considering getting that key tracker for my brother, but then it occurred to me that he would totally lose the transmitter. LOL Shucks. Someone marginally more organized then my brother could use this for sure!
