If you have a geek in your life, you may be wondering what to get them for Christmas. There are so many amazing things out there for those who have technical know-how, or just consider themselves geeks. With everything from great games that are coming out, to fun, silly items, you can definitely find something to fit the person you are shopping for. The following are the top 10 Christmas presents for the geek in your life this year. They are in no particular order, simply because each geek has different preferences!
1.) World of Warcraft, Cataclysm: If the geek in your life is a gamer, this is a must have. If they already play World of Warcraft, you may want to check and make sure they don’t already have the expansion. It was recently released, and many people upgraded that day. If the person you are buying for does not already have Cataclysm, this is a great idea for them. With new zones, professions and more, they will love the new face of WoW.
2.) Nintendo Monopoly: If your gamer enjoys board games, this is the gift for them! Combining the classic Nintendo games with the board game everybody loves makes for a fun time for all. Even if it isn’t played very often, this could be a great collection piece.
3.) Star Trek Enterprise Pizza Cutter and Star Wars Chop Sabers: These two are tied, depending on if your geek is a Star Trek fan or a Star Wars junkie. For those who love Star Trek, the pizza cutter is made of solid stainless steel and is officially licensed by the franchise. For the Star Wars fan, the Chops Sabers are unique and useful. After all, Chinese food is a staple in the lives of many geeks, and being able to eat your orange chicken with light sabers is just plain awesome!
4.) Ebook Reader: If your geek is a book lover, they will love an ebook reader. There are many options available, but the Kindle and the Nook are currently at the forefront of the market. You can also get many ebooks for free, or at least a lot cheaper than in their paperback or hardcover forms. This is a gift that keeps giving, because you can always add more books.
5.) Xbox Kinect: This is a hot new item. Up until recently, the Wii was the leader in games that required you to get up and shake your booty. Now, there is the Xbox Kinect as well. With a variety of games that allow you to take charge of the characters with your body, instead of a traditional controller, there is tons of fun to be had!
6.) Footie Pajamas: Take your geek back to childhood with these! (Yes, there are actually footed pajamas for adults.) Can you think of a better way to do your programming or gaming? Footed jammies are a fun, warm, and even practical gift for the geek in your life.
7.) BuckyBalls Magnetic Building Spheres: Does your geek like magnets? Or just fun things to play around with? If so, these magnets are where it’s at. You can use them to make almost anything, and can mix and match the colors. You can also get more than one set to make the perfect creation.
8.) Astronaut Ice Cream: This is the way to go if you’re looking to stuff the stockings. Not only can you find this fairly cheap, you’d be surprised at how excited your geek gets when they open it up. These can store for up to three years, so stock up on them!
9.) Mana Energy Potions and Health Energy Potions: All geeks need a little pick me up sometimes, and when regular sodas just don’t do the trick, consider these energy and health potions. With almost as much caffeine as two Red Bulls in each drink, they’re sure to make a long night of gaming much easier.
10.) Anything Zombies: Zombies are coming; all geeks understand this. The Zombie Survival Guide is a great option, but anything that has to do with zombies, or surviving the zombie apocalypse is a perfect gift idea for the geek in your life.
Finding the perfect present doesn’t have to be difficult. There are so many options that are great and fun for geeks that you may have to take some time to narrow down your ideas. Just take a look around, and choose one that best fits their interests.
