This is another thoughtful and affordable gift for a guy who spends most of his time on the computer. The clip can be latched to the edge of a table, making tea/coffee/water accessible and away from his laptop or computer and avoid spillage. Available in India for around INR 199 or you can buy cheaper from HERE. Check online for the sellers.

These are some affordable Valentine's day gift ideas for the geek guy in your life. The fact is, the term 'affordable' becomes relative when it comes to gadgets. If you can afford a higher price tag, there are of course some very hi fi gadgets out there too. Decide how much you can spend, because more importantly, it is the feelings behind a gift, that should matter.
Be Loved, Be Blessed!
