December 15, 2012: Geek Gifts Galore
I went around and asked a bunch of my co-workers to recommend a geeky gift idea. Here's some of what I got:
A miniature wriggling tentacle that plugs into a USB port. That's actually all it does, but how cool is that? (Thanks, Steve! Also, eeeeuuuuuuwwww.)
Bathrobes patterned after Jedi robes, for the best cosplay no one will ever see you do. (Thanks, Darryll!)
A USS Enterprise pizza cutter. My personal favorite. (Thanks, Bridget!)
Wearable cat ears that move in response to your brainwaves. I don't know whether to be fascinated or creeped out by this. (Thanks again, Bridget!)
Doctor Who over-the-knee socks, for the Whovian lady in your life. Or, you know, for you. (Okay, Bridget, I get the hint.)
Walking Dead bobblehead dolls. Because ironic inversion of tone is funny, I guess? (Thanks, Andrew!)
And of course, there's my default -- basically anything from ThinkGeek.
I hope these suggestions lead you to the perfect gifts for the geeks in your lives!
