I have a not-so-secret secret to confess. I am a geek. I can quote Star Wars and Dune with the best of them. I am obsessed with zombies. I have dreams about traveling in The Doctor’s TARDIS to have picnics in the past on alien planets. I am also persnickety and have strong opinions on aesthetics and taste. All of these things mean I am an absolute nightmare to shop for. Friends and family are often left scratching their heads when gift-giving time rolls around. I know that neither I nor they are not alone in this quandary.
If you aren’t a geek yourself, then odds are you have someone on your shopping list who is…and if you’re anything like my family you would probably appreciate any help you can get at getting your geek the perfect gift. This is where I help you. I hereby present the ultimate Gift Guide for Geeks. Consider it my gift to you. May it serve you well. Good luck on your shopping endeavors and may the force be with you.
