The holidays aren't just coming - they're here. Thankfully, there's still a bit of time to finish (or start!) your holiday shopping at Micro Center. We've got a lot more than just computer parts, and we've put together a list of some fantastic gifts that anyone on your list will love, whether they're a tech expert or not!

Last Minute Gifts at Micro Center

Creality 3D Printing Pen

3D printing is getting easier and easier to start, but not everyone has the space for a full 3D printer. A 3D Printer Pen from Creality, however, fits into any house and offers boundless opportunities for creativity. From tigers to the Eiffel Tower, if you can draw it, you can print it!

Ring lights

If you've got a budding streamer or influencer in the family, a ring light can do wonders to get them going on the right foot. No one like's watching someone sit in a dark room, face half-obscured by shadows. Give them the tools to succeed, and a ring light is an inexpensive stocking stuffer that can do just that.

Cell Phone Car Mounts

If there was ever a time of year that everyone needs directions to grandma's house, it's the holidays. But it's also the time of snow, ice, and unpleasant weather - which is why you should absolutely not be holding your phone, checking directions while you drive. Make sure everyone makes it to where they need to go safely with a cell phone mount for the car!

Wyze Security Cameras

Wyze cams are fantastic, inexpensive cameras with so many uses - home security and beyond! They're fantastic for keeping an eye on your new pets, making sure the kids upstairs are safe, and, of course, keeping an eye on your house while you're reminiscing with family across cities, states, and countries!


It doesn't matter who you are, everyone loves to get a toy as a gift. And few toys spark as much joy as Legos. Whether you're 9 or 99, unwrapping an X-Wing is always a treat and a surefire way to keep the kids occupied and out of trouble!

Pebble Speakers

Pebble Speakers may be compact, but they pack a massive, vibrant sound. They're an easy way to fill a whole room with holiday cheer and are small enough that they'll easily fit in any college dorm. Pebble speakers are a perfect fit for the office, gaming setup, or living room music player.

Nanoleaf Shapes Hexagons Smarter Kit (7 panels)

RGB lighting isn't just for gamers. Nanoleaf Shapes are a stylish, minimalist way to add a burst of color to any room and are fully customizable. Set the holiday mood with reds and greens, support your favorite sports teams, or even play a variety of games, all from an easy-to-use phone app!

Headset Stand

Let's face it: without a stand, there's no really good way to store a headset. They're designed for heads, not for lying flat, taking up space on a desk. Thankfully, stands exist and can free up a lot of desk space. There are even stands designed to hang off the side of your desk, opening up even more space!


Earbuds are a universally great gift. Even if your gift recipient already has a pair, they can almost certainly use more, just in case they get misplaced, forgotten, or broken. And everyone uses them, whether its for work, school, bus rides, runs, or all of the above!


To call the otamatone a unique gift does it a disservice. It's an electronic musical instrument with a functional mouth... and they're great. Don't know how to play music? No worries! It becomes a fun toy and tricks people into learning music. But if you're already musically inclined the sky is the limit, with no limit to the pure magic you can perform with this eternally smiling instrument!
