Now that the insanity of Black Friday is behind us… (Man, Where did 2012 go?!) a lot of you still have actual christmas shopping to do with actual people in mind that are harder to buy for than just what is “on sale” on one day a year lol. Luckily, we have been scanning the internets for you for the coolest, most geekified items that any creative geek would love to receive on annual “Give people stuff day” also known as Christmas (or X-mas, or whatever you kids call it these days.)! It is easy to get overwhelmed when christmas shopping – the holidays are stressful for sure – but hopefully since we did some legwork for you, we can de-stress you a little bit with this comprehensive list of stuff!
Holiday 2012 Geek Gift Guide
If you are shopping for a geek, you know that it is no easy task, hopefully this list of items will give you some ideas, or inspire you with some different ideas on your gift purchasing journey this year! The following list is something I have compiled (being a geek myself) of items that I would want for myself (if I had the money or someone was buying them for me that is. FEEL FREE TO BUY THEM FOR ME BTW LOL) these are in no particular order of course. I chose these items based on fun factor, coolness, and new/usefulness of the tech gadgets – hopefully they will be worthy additions to your shopping list (and your geeks will appreciate them!). Most importantly, I hope you don’t stress out over shopping and enjoy time with the family this year 🙂 We all need that time to rewind and reflect on ourselves so that we can do more of the stuff that we love and make a difference in the world! Happy Holidays, I hope you enjoy!
If the geek on your list doesn’t have an XBOX 360 though, and you REALLY LOVE THEM (really really lol) pick up this bundle with halo 4 and this freaking cool halo 4 custom cased xbox360! I have never received a gift this epic lol
One of the hottest gaming consoles this year is the Wii U! It just came out last week, and they are sold out pretty much everywhere except for Amazon & eBay (slightly marked up lol) of course. I actually have one that I preordered (I did a review of it over here if you want to know my thoughts) I would say definitely get one if you have young kids that love mario & nintendo games, If you are a hardcore gamer though, maybe hold off for the other next generation systems that will come out.
Its a FRICKEN TRON WATCH!
Nothing is quite as manly, or cool, as this beanie with a beard.. hat… thing. I love it. Pick one up here
Can’t have a turret without a portal gun!
That. Is Hilarious. The Useless Box.
For the geek that likes to put things together :D. POTATO GLADOS!
And if you are preparing for said Zombie Apocalypse, then you need this bad boy for staying Off The Grid! Its your standard radio that picks up AM, FM, shortwave and weatherband radio stations. HOWEVER, you can Power it with a hand crank or by just using solar power (or you can wimp out and use batteries or an AC adapter (not included)). You can even use it as an alarm, flashlight or a cell phone charger. Epic Survival Win.
Another awesome USB Microscope, see it in action! This one is more heavy duty than the last one
This little guy is changing the tv game! The Roku Streaming Player is basically a stand alone streaming content box (great if you don’t already have something that does this, like a game console) that you can use to view awesome stuff like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu Plus, and Pandora on your TV! It is pretty cheap too!
For The Working Creatives
It isn’t all fun and games though, this gift giving thing. You most likely have people on your wish-list that are workaholics and need the latest gadgets to get actual work done rather than have fun with (although, they believe working is fun 😀 Win Win!) So check out these awesome gadgets for the working Creative Geek, Web Designer, Photographer & The Like!
