Most geeks are true geeks if they have some sort of obsession that runs their lives. True geeks don’t see their geekiness as a source of shame, but rather, a mark of pride. One of the really fun perks to being a geek are the many different geeky accessories we can use to flaunt our geekiness.
Here are some great gifts to give the proud, self-proclaimed geek in your family:
Since the birth of the term “geek,” it seemed like there were a few accessories every geek must have. Besides glasses, the most obvious accessory is a watch.
But to take your geekiness up a notch, try a watch where the numbers are represented with different math terms including a factorial, binary, cube root, and of course modular arithmetic (also known as clock arithmetic). It doesn’t get much geekier than that!
Similarly, you can get your geeky freshman’s new dorm room the geek clock.
Toxic Waste Drum Laundry Basket
One item all college students need is a laundry basket, which is why this next geeky gift, the Toxic Waste Drum Laundry Basket, is one a freshman will love. Nothing spices up ones room like a good toxic waste bin. After all, we all know geeks never have time to wash their clothes, right?
Bracer of Battery Life +2 (Universal Gadget Wrist Charger)
One thing most geeks share in common is a love for technology. So when your freshman’s tech device runs out of battery when he/she is on the go, you know he will NOT be happy. The Universal Gadget Wrist Charger, aka the Bracer of Battery Life +2, is a gift that will allow your geeky freshman to take his/her tech device anywhere without worrying about it running out of battery life. This portable charging device charges cell phones, mp3 players, gaming systems, and any device that is compatible with a mini USB. Plus it looks pretty darn cool (I can’t be the only who thinks it looks like something straight out a comic book).
The Clutch for iPad
The next item on our list is one for the chic geek girl. The Clutch for iPad is a great gift for any geeky girl with an iPad2/iPad3. With this accessory, a chic geek can hold everything she loves on the go plus her iPad. According to the creators of this great accessory:
Basically, it’s perfect. Not only will it keep your iPad happy, but it will keep you organized too. There are pockets for cash and change, credit cards, business cards, pens, a stylus and a mobile phone. Plus, you’ll still have room in the larger pocket for your lipgloss, sunglasses, passport, keys and more!
