It's cold outside, your local grocery store is stocked with eggnog, and the mall is a madhouse. It can mean only one thing -- the holidays are coming! That also means you're running out of time to finish buying gifts for family and friends, but what do you do if you're stuck on what to get that special geek in your life? What if you ARE that special geek? Don't sweat it, whether you're looking for gnarly gift ideas for someone else or want to treat yourself to something nice before embarking on a new year, we have you covered with a robust selection of gadgets, games, and toys guaranteed to delight whoever receives them in our Geek's Holiday Gift Guide 2012. From Google Play gift cards to a severed Wampa arm fashioned into an ice scraper mitt, we have suggestions for all levels of geek!
To make things easier for you, we're separating our gift suggestions into handy categories, though we highly recommend browsing each of the galleries. You never know what you'll find until you click through!
Here we make recommendations for all the cool items that didn't fit into any of the other categories. Consider this the island of misfit items, if you will. Or maybe they're rebel items, refusing to conform to convention by being so far off the beaten path that we didn't know what the heck to classify them as. It doesn't matter, because these are all worthy gifts for any geek.
