Gifts for Mechanical Engineers

Gift Ideas for engineers – presents they’ll love for more than the thought!

We are always confused to buy a gift for our special person, or gift for a theme party.! Especially that time when It is connected to them’s profession.! Recently I was wondering to hear the reason why my Partner fails to send me Birthday Gift at time..? Hehe.. Actually she was confused in selection of a nice gift for a Mechanical Engineer ‘Me’..

                       I was raised by a Automobile Engineer, my friend Mitraj and his GF. She gave him a fantastic Harley-Davidson Bike Model made by using small mechanical parts like nuts, bolts, spring, ball bearings, etc. and We friends were came to appreciate her that shopping for his gifts was so easy. Or, maybe not so easy..! Maybe Hardy has worn out her welcome. If so, it’s time to go further into the mysterious world of the best gifts for mechanical engineering people.

Certainly, even mechanical engineers need ties, socks, batteries, and underwear. But if you’re really wanting to get him the best gift possible, you’ll want something that gets under his skin.

With all success in mind, I use the above photo from Mitraj Banker‘s Facebook Profile..! haha… I’ve not steal it..!! so it comes up with some fantastic gift ideas for engineers. You’ll understand when you see the list.

Buying gifts for mechanical engineers doesn’t have to be difficult – you just have to know your audience.

2) Great Pocket MultiTool – An Engineer’s Favourite

And at Rs. 3500/- (down from Rs. 3750/-), it’s a well priced gift for this holiday season. Your beloved engineer will think you must have heard him talking in his sleep! 🙂

3) Cool Books For Engineers

Absinthe & Flamethrowers: Projects and Ruminations on the Art of Living Dangerously
If you can imagine Calvin of Calvin and Hobbes all grown up, this supercharged guide for amateur thrill seekers would probably replace Hobbes as his constant companion. And your engineer dad (or daughter) will be tickled pink!

Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Implements of Spitball Warfare
Toy designer John Austin provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for each project, including materials and ammo lists, clear diagrams, and construction tips, for mayhem-loving MacGyvers. What’s that? You call your engineer ‘MacGyver’? We all do!

Ideas in Food: Great Recipes and Why They Work
The perfect gift for the cooking-curious engineer! The husband-and-wife culinary team of H. Alexander Talbot and Aki Kamozawa use chemistry, biology, and a host of creative cooking techniques to produce the uniquely delicious recipes found in Ideas in Food: Great Recipes and Why They Work. Building their book around the science of food preparation, Kamozawa and Talbot cleverly explain why quickly freezing fruits and vegetables best preserves their texture, which woods produce the most flavorful smoke, and why folding dough, rather than kneading it, is the key to making easy artisan bread.

4) Great T-Shirt gift for the science minded

Rs. 299/- up to your choice/-
If this hysterical T-shirt doesn’t quite fit the bill as the perfect gift for your engineer. Be sure to find the perfect fit!

5) Make Magazine Subscription

If you want a gift for a mechanical engineer that says “I can see into your soul and know exactly what makes you tick,” MAKE magazine is the perfect gift. Read what they say about their magazine and see if I’m wrong:

MAKE brings the do-it-yourself mindset to all the technology in your life and celebrates your right to tweak, hack, and bend your technology to your will. MAKE ignites your ingenuity and connects you with your fellow “Makers.”

If you prefer a ‘wrappable’ gift for engineers, you can get their past issues in year long ‘sets’. If you can’t wrap a set of magazines, I don’t know what you can wrap!

Visit Magazine Mall once ane choose your annual magazine plan.

6) Fire Piston Kit

Great gift for the mechanical engineer with a fireplace or a passion for camping.
Fire Piston 
$20 (Not yet released in India)

This crazy device allows your beloved engineer to make fire. And who doesn’t like to make fire? But what makes it a great gift for a mechanical engineer is that it makes fire by igniting things using the heat caused by compressing the air – BY HAND!

Crazy, right? Fun, right? Can’t you see your loved one finding things to set on fire all camp fire? Sure to be a winner.

7) AND A Garlic Chopper – (for engineers?! 😉

What do mechanical engineers appreciate the most? I know that good design is near the top of the list, especially when it’s a great design that follows a whole bunch of bad designs. That’s what makes this garlic ‘twist’ chopper a good gift for mechanical engineers. (hahaha…) It has a unique design for which it has won 6!! Industry awards, and it chops garlic, then will get clean in the dishwasher. That’s way better than any other option available. You can find it in your nearest Super-Market.
