Church Webmaster Gift Guide

Looking for techy gifts and gadgets for the geek who runs your church’s website? Say thank-you with one of these top ten and you just might have a prayer of getting your next feature request moved to the front of the queue.

Even if your loner coder doesn’t have opportunity to meet with flesh-and-blood friends or parishioners, that’s no need to miss out on the warmth of true friends that comes from holding a hot cup of coffee, especially in a mug adorned with the avatars of virtual friends. Gift one of these Twitter mugs and you’re sure to receive a direct message of thanks.
