The holidays are here, even though they may look a little different this year. That means we are all on the hunt for unique, fun, and functional gifts for our family, friends, and ourselves. Our holiday gift guides are here to help take that stress off your plate. The first part of Gift Guide #1 has unique gifts selected by Brett Terpstra, David Ginsburg, and Kelly Guimont.

David Ginsburg is the President of the Suburban Chicago Apple Users Group, and is an IT professional supporting Mac, iOS and Windows users. Find and follow him on Twitter as @daveg65. You can also hear him share his knowledge on his podcast, In Touch With iOS.
Kelly Guimont is a longtime Apple geek, sitting down (on a telephone book) in front of an Apple IIe in 1983. She can still hear the ticking of the ImageWriter. Thanks to the miracle of the adjustable leg desk, she no longer needs the phonebook. Kelly writes for The Mac Observer, is the host of the Daily Observations Podcast, is co-host of The Aftershow, and yet still has more to say which she saves for Twitter and Micro.blog.
