2014 MySQL DBA/Developers Holiday Gifts


MySQL DBAs and Developers are hard to shop for but here are some ideas that will appeal to them.

1. Hamster Wheel Standing Desk http://www.dudeiwantthat.com/gear/office/hamster-wheel-standing-desk.asp

Hamster Wheel Standing Desk
Get your favorite MySQL-er a new desk, some exercise, and you will be giving a gift that provides more than just a place to stash stuff.

For the DBA/Dev on the go, there is also the Refold Portable Cardboard Desk http://www.dudeiwantthat.com/gear/office/refold-portable-cardboard-desk.asp that does not provide as much exercise but could be just the thing for the trip to that oh so crowded Starbucks.

2. “DB Evil Genius” Mug http://www.cafepress.com/mf/10655743/db-evil-genius_mugs?productId=46810134
What goes better on a new desk than a new mug?
