Option 4: Hacker Swag
All geeks love their swag and hackers are no different. So if you are the kind of person who is inclined to buy socks or tie as a gift, consider buying some themed hackers and computer science t-shirts or hoodies from Zero Day Clothing or Hacker Stickers.
Honestly, anything from any of these places is sure to delight someone's inner nerd. The best part is the price is right so you can easily find something on either site to fit all budgets from as low as $ 2 to $ 6 for some stickers for $ 50 for a hoodie. You can also find some swag on Amazon if you prefer.

Option 5: Mission Darkness Faraday Bag
If your hacker consistently has drawbacks or has a healthy paranoia about his Wireless signals, consider buying them a Faraday bag. Think of these bags as a container for wireless signals – insert a phone and it would immediately lose all wireless connection, in theory; This makes it very useful when you are at a disadvantage, and you want to make sure your primary electronics make it unscathed. You can learn more about them in the video below.
Missing Screen Faraday bag from MOS Equipment is an excellent choice of $ 22.99. It will properly block all wireless spectrum and is large enough to hold your phone, passport and other RFID or Bluetooth enabled devices that you can carry around.
Faraday Mobile Phone Case – MSRP $ 22.99 (Amazon | MOS)
Windows Faraday Case for Phones – MSRP $ 52 (Amazon | MOS)
Mojave Faraday Phone Bag – MSRP $ 50 (Amazon | MOS)
] Faraday Bag for Keyfobs – MSRP $ 17.99 (Amazon | MOS)
Gifts from $ 51- $ 100
Since some of the above items are cheaper, there is a good chance that the hacker in your life already has some of them. So, if you can afford to spend a little more on your holiday, there are some of the best options.
Option 8: One Year of VPN Service
Virtual Private Networks are really useful because they provide the integrity and anonymity that many security conscious people expect. No one wants your service provider to sell your browsing history and VPN companies like
Private Internet Access, IVPN and Tor Guard allow you to hide your traffic from your Internet service provider and from snoops via open or shared Wi-Fi networks.
Prices range from $ 3.33 per month to PIA to $ 9.99 for Tor Guard (for an annual subscription). They are often sold as much as 60% off, so for budget conscious, be sure to check all three when you buy. All VPNs include a proxy server to hide your IP for application-specific tasks such as torrent Kali ISOs, and with a VPN server you can combine with Tor with Whonix to create an entirely anonymous Kali box.
PIA is the best compromise of value, features and usability. IVPN will provide the fast connections and is easy to use on all major platforms, making it an excellent alternative to PIA. Tor Guard is not as easy to use, especially for iOS users, but it makes it possible to buy support for ChromeOS. The Wirecutter has a good review of VPNs if you are looking for more details. Regardless of the choice of VPN, no hackers will be upset with the present.
Option 9: Raspberry Pi Model 3 B + Startup Kit
If you really love your hackers, you will not get them running around to buy accessories before they can get started, why do we recommend
CanaKits 32 GB Raspberry Pi 3 B + Starter Kit for 79.99 USD. It has everything that a hacker needs to get started with the Raspberry Pi platform, including the biggest and worst Pi, Model 3 B +, a 32GB microSD card, a case and the cables and adapters needed. All that is needed is to follow our guide to get started with ethical hacking.

is a smooth Wi-Fi (19659031) with power supply, case, 32GB SD card, cables etc. – MSRP $ 94.95 60-degree scanner that is incredibly useful for making fast wireless reconnaissance. It's a bit about the size of two matchboxes, and when you keep it in the eye, it reveals a screen similar to VR glasses, except that it shows all Wi-Fi networks with the corresponding signal strength.
A tool like Dope Scope makes it extremely useful to determine where an access point is in the physical environment around you. It's also very useful when you try to set directional antennas like a Yagi to attack a network. You can also play some fun games, such as Fox Hunt if you have several of these; Have a person hide in an audience with an access point, give all the other participants Dope Scopes and make them chase "Fox".

We have all seen the monthly subscription fields at this time, and now there is also a hacker.
HackerBoxes is a DIY electronics and computer technology subscription that provides monthly deliveries of cured projects, components, modules, tools and exclusive items. You can buy monthly boxes for $ 44 and boxes from previous months to $ 59. So if you're bad to pick gifts, choose this and let somebody else do the hard work for you.

Gifts from $ 101- $ 350
Now that we've gotten away from stocking stuffers and the next level of hacking presents it's time for serious weapons. These are more expensive and could break the bank, but it's likely gifts that a hacker could never afford on their own when they spend their usual ones on smaller items and certifications.
Option 16: Hak5 Essentials Field Kit
some great products and if your favorite hanger has not been indoctrinated yet, start with the Hak5 Essentials Field Kit.
The kit includes all important network hacking tools such as USB Rubber Ducky (seen earlier in this guide), LAN Turtle and WiFi Pineapple Nano. LAN Turtle is a useful tool for packet sniffing and man-in-the-middle attacks on wired networks while WiFi Pineapples do the same for wireless networks. Pineapplean also works as an incredible access point that emulates a legitimate access point and pains no suspicion that they can connect to it.

Option 18: Apple 13-inch MacBook Pro (for Apple Lovers)
MacOS fans out there will love a new Apple MacBook Pro. The small 13-inch form factor is best for portability and the 2.3 GHz dual-core 7th generation Intel Core i5 processor should be up to every hacking task you can throw it. We recommend at least 256 GB of storage. Otherwise, you can quickly find yourself running out of space. The following links are for the 256 GB (8 GB RAM) models with and without Touch Bar and Touch ID.
Any amount (for anyone who has it all)
Finally, let's see what we'll get for someone who already has everything they can want – or when they insist that you do not get them anything.
Option 20: WISP (WISP) Donation
Another amazing ideal to donate would be women in security and privacy (WISP). It focuses on providing education, mentorship and leadership education to women seeking a career in the infosec community. Better than, look at giving your time gift
through volunteer work.
