Motherboard Gifts for the Tech Geek On Your Holiday List

Now here’s what a little creativity can come up with; Motherboard Gifts is a company that utilizes old motherboards and computer parts to make reclaimed gifts like money clips, picture frames, clocks, coasters, jewelry, bookmarks, binders, business card cases and even Christmas ornaments.

These are eco-friendly gifts even the most tech savvy, computer geek may love.

Founded in 1991, Motherboard specializes in the manufacturing of high quality gift products utilizing reclaimed circuit boards and other fun and unique materials.

These products capture the intrinsic beauty of technology while providing an environmentally friendly alternative to the circuit boards being disposed of in landfills. Each product may vary by color and pattern making every item unique – virtually one of a kind. The circuit board may have been designed for use in a computer, an electronics component, a phone, or a television.

Now the circuit boards live out new lives as fun, eco-friendly and unique gifts.

Almost any item can be reused, recycled or upcycled into something else. It just takes ingenuity and creativity.

What item do you have lying around that has seen better days but could be made into something useful?
