It's difficult to buy a present for a girl who also happens to be a geek. On one hand, girl geeks are still girls, and chances are likely that the gift recipient will still appreciate a nice piece of jewellery and some chocolate. On the other hand, a gift has the opportunity to truly impress a girl geek if it is thoughtful and intended to impress. There are several options out there for girls in all aspects of geekdom--from the television fanatic to technology nerd.

A T-shirt with a fun, cute saying can impress a girl geek. Snorgtees.com and Giftsforageek.com have T-shirts with clever phrases.

The latest in products from pop culture icon Apple, the iPad is a little bit of everything--an eReader, music player and movie player. A girl geek could check her e-mail, perfect a business plan and read the stock report from the palm of her hand. As of 2010, the iPad started at £324.
An at-home chemistry kit can be a great idea for a girl geek who is interested in science. Chemistry kits are available for all ages and for all price points.

If the guest recipient is a geek for all things movie and television, she may appreciate being one of the first to get a 3-D television. While not a new concept, three-dimensional televisions are more available to consumers. According to PC Magazine, the biggest drawback to buying a 3-D television is the expense, which may have prohibited a TV geek from purchasing a set for herself. However, as a gift, it would surely be well received.
