Christmas Rotation: Reposted November 24, 2011
Since ‘tis the season let us see if there are any specific Christmas flash drives. You know, ones that don’t just make for great gifts but actually have a Christmas theme. So get your eggnog ready…
Santa Claus flash drives may hug, wave, flex their muscle, carry a sack or even come as an iBear. Santa can have his belly stuffed with 1 to 16GB and may weigh around 18g. The fastest Santa Claus flash drive flies with 12 MB/s but may even be faster if he has his reindeer to help out.
The reindeer memory stick pulls gifts in a total of 8GB and may even protect them with password wrap. It sports a little bell on his leash and a big red nose which more than likely contains the LED. This USB reindeer has grown up to be 62 x 30 x 14 mm and has been bred as a Super Talent Flash Drive.
Not only is it decorated by itself with baubles and tinsel but it also serves as a practical ornament for your computer. And that without losing any fir needles or cones. The Christmas tree flash drive has a weight of 22g but can be reduced when the tree trunk is lifted as the USB interface cap. Likewise it may gain weight by attaching a key ring through the hole of the star top.

Instead of hanging by your chimney they only look like one while they sock it to your computer with 1-4GB. They’re stuffed with password and partitioning support and – no surprise there – they’re bootable. More of a surprise though is the retractable USB connector. However there’s also a cap variety.
Snowman flash drives!
In the true tradition of creative snowmen building these too stand in different forms and sizes. They may have scarves, red, black or blue hats and consist of 2-8GB of snow. Of course you have to watch that they don’t melt while sitting in your USB port but usually they enjoy getting a break from the cold.
Frolicking around beside the rather static snowmen is the USB Christmas dog.
It has a red Santa hat and looks a little bit like Snoopy. While this Snowdog may not be as frolicky as the Humping Dog Flash Drive it can definitely hold its own territory with a range of 2 to 8GB. And it sure makes a great companion to USB Santa Claus.
Back to a more static winter figure we have the Santa Penguin.

Last but not least, there are plenty of custom Christmas flash drives available that don’t come in the shape of a particular figure but with a holiday theme imprinted.
There are slim card flash drives with wreaths, Santa Claus, jingle bells and nativity scenes. There are also regular shapes showing Christmas trees, a romantic snowed in house and Santa with his reindeer sleigh.
Well, unless you want to be a scrooge, these Christmas flash drives are wonderful gifts to your loved ones and their computers. Whether a Snowman or Santa himself, they all can be considered diligent little helpers, even elfin. And that’s no humbug!
