Geeks don't necessarily wear pocket protectors, nerdy glasses or have slicked back hair. Geeks can be anyone who enjoys computers, electronics, science or reading. If you have a self-described geek in your life, gift her with something that will capitalise on her favourite hobbies or interests.
If he travels a lot, he'll appreciate a folding keyboard. Hook a folding keyboard up to any device and type normally instead of trying to push buttons on a tiny touch screen. Once you are done with the keyboard, it folds neatly and is easy to store.
It goes without saying that most geeks love to be up to date on their electronics. Gift her with the latest, brand new iPod, flip video camera, cell phone or video gaming system. If you know she is obsessed with playing the latest games, get her a hand held gaming system she can take with her on the go, along with a new game. For audiophiles, a new iPod with a touch screen would be a sweet gift.
Pads that lay out flat and can charge all your devices at once are a cool find and make an interesting gift. Instead of dealing with the hassle of plugging in all of your electronics, lay them all on the pad to charge them. It's something someone may not buy for themselves, but a geek will put this fun and handy gift to good use.
All geeks have their guilty, nerdy pleasures. It may be Star Trek or graphic novels, but whatever your geek pal is into, pay homage to their interests by getting them a box set of their favourite television series, a new set of comics or books, or some geeky movies on DVD. Maybe they don't have "Avatar" on Blu-ray yet, or missed the "Back To The Future" trilogy coming out on DVD. Throw in some popcorn and candy so your geek can make a night of it.
Toys and Games
Some geeks enjoy hearkening back to childhood by collecting toys or action figures. Seek out a rare collectable that your friend has been looking for, or buy a new addition to a collection he already has at home. Prop replicas from movies are a big hit, and if your friend is into role-playing, there are a multitude of games to pick from.
