Do You Give Tech Gifts Early?

Do You Give Tech Gifts Early?

Q: Unplggd, I really need your advice. My boyfriend's birthday is in two weeks and I'm getting him a new sports game for the Wii. But since his best college buddy is coming in to town this week, should I give the gift early and let them enjoy it?

I already have a copy of soccer game FIFA 10 for Wii and a pair of Wii Classic Controllers hidden away in the closet. I know my boy and his buddy are both big on the game and would no doubt love to have a copy on hand to play, but part of me wants to give him his birthday present on his birthday.

I'm not the first one to be in this situation. A friend of mine bought an iPhone for her fiance for Christmas and presented it to him in October. She saw no reason to wait to gift it when he could be enjoying Words with Friends all season long.

Editor - So what do you think, Unplggd? Should she give the gift of gaming a little early or wait and present his birthday gift on his birthday? Let us know in the comments!

Got a good question you'd like answered? Send your queries and please include a photo or two illustrating your question, and we'll see if the Unplggd or our readers can help answer your question.
