For the hacker in your life who loves to meet people, a membership to a local hackerspace is a fantastic gift. Hackerspaces are great places to get involved and meet a community of like-minded people, and they’re also a good place to go if they’re learning new DIY skills. Every place has different membership rates (and some are free): you’ll find a list of different spaces and membership costs on Hackerspaces.
