Learning electronics can be fun and easy with the Maker's Kit for Arduino–ARDX. The starter kit, which includes the Arduino Uno R3, includes two new experiments and everything a newbie needs to get started out of the box. Best of all, no prior electronics experience required!

With the free software available from the Arduino website, kids can start writing simple programs and then move on up to more complex examples.

For the bachelors

This one is highly-recommended by our editors. Your bachelor friend will never go hungry again once he has a Rotimatic in his kitchen. A product of California-based Zimplistic, to robot roti maker only needs a supply of ingredients to work. It has a container for dry-based ingredient, usually flour, another container for water and the smallest one for oil. Plug it into a standard wall outlet, choose your thickness, crispiness and oil content on a small LCD screen, hit start, and voila! You're in roti-making business.

'Ties suck' tie (

The Rotimatic has gotten several rave reviews, including from Mashable. Sadly, stocks for this year are already sold out, but you can plan ahead and start pre-ordering for next year.

Cooking not your thing? Then our editors suggest some bling for Diwali. Kingston is introducing a limited edition 24 carat gold plated DataTraveler GE9 USB drive, complete with an engraved Lord Ganesha. The ultra-slim and capless USB drive comes with a five-year warranty and free technical support.

Dressing up can be cool and chic, and geeky, all at the same time. Found on, this 100 per cent silk tie may look like a series of small boxes and dashes on a blue background. But those markings are actually binary code spelling out "ties suck." Give it to a dad—or to anyone really—you know who likes to mock his boss in a passive aggressive way.
