gift-guide-featYou might be a geek yourself, or maybe you’re just related to one. With the rise of “geek chic” over recent years, you almost certainly have a geek on your holiday shopping list this year. Buying for geeks can be difficult if you do not know exactly what your friend is into, but there’s no real reason to stress out. Your friend almost certainly has a good sense of humor and an interest in learning new things. Even if you accidentally pick something utterly unrelated to your friend’s geekdom, you’ve at least given him or her an opportunity to explore something new, and that could be the best gift ever.

To help you out with some ideas, we’ve assembled our own 2013 geek gift guide for the holidays this year. OK, you caught us. This is all just stuff we want. But if we want it, someone else will as well, so take a look through these cool finds and let us know if you have other cool ideas that we should be adding to our own holiday lists this year.
