I’m a geek. You know a geek. Geeks are sexy these days.
We have a lot in common.
So what does the geek in your life want for Christmas? This year we want gadget accessories, classy art, and stuff ironically associated with internet memes. If you can’t find anything else, we’ll take an iPad mini.
Here’s 12 ideas for the geek in your life
The Glif ($20)
It’s a stand and tripod mount for an iPhone. I’ve got one of these, it’s totally handy on planes, when making Skype calls, or when you are trying to take nice photos.
Crocheted Zombie Hat ($30)
I can’t explain the “why” behind this one. If you have a geek in your life who has an undead head which sometimes gets cold, they need this.

Converge Rest & Recharge ($39.99)
This would look great on any geeks desk. It helps organize the clutter of stuff that needs to charge and hides the cords. Charge up to 4 things at once and nicely show them off? Bam.
RHA Noise Canceling Headphones ($39.95)
The fine folks at RHA sent me a pair of these to try out. Being a lover of my iBeats by Monster, I was pretty skeptical. But you know what? For $40 they are great. Lightweight and a unique/cool fabric cord.

Super Mario Hat for Your Cat ($8.50)
I’m not even sure you need a cat for this to be cool. Your geek just needs this. They know what to do.

iPad Mini Portfolio Case ($59.99)
This is the nicest case I’ve seen. It has a few folding positions, the device stays nice-n-snug in there, and it’s leather. Any geek would look pro geek with this.
LOLcats Etched Coffee Mug ($10)
I’ve never met a geek who didn’t have a chuckle at LOLcats. With this mug they can share their inside giggles with all their co-workers while the boss just assumes they are the creepy guy in the office with a cat mug.
Cam Caddie Video Stabalizer ($39)
This is on my personal Christmas list. Attach a DSLR camera to the mount and use the handle to shoot much more stable video. This is a great little addition to any photo geeks kit.

Vintage Pop Art Star Wars Trilogy ($40)
Married to a geek? Ready to be a little more grown up while holding onto your geek roots? This is the best of both worlds. Seriously awesome prints at a crazy low price.

Pottery Barn-style Star Wars Prints ($65)
Sticking with the Star Wars theme. These are pretty fantastic as well.
Etsy user PrintChick sells these
A nice solution to a very annoying problem. Need to check your email or post an Instagram while you’ve got gloves on? Fat chance unless you have these. Special material on the finger tips allows the geek you love to keep holding their phone instead of your hand. Double bonus!

Seat Belt Camera Strap ($20)
The straps that come with cameras are lame. Any shutterbug would dig this strap made from the same material as a seat belt.
