It’s a misnomer that geeks seems to always want gadgets, peripherals for their computers. If someone asked me what I wanted for Christmas, I’d make it convenient for him or her to choose from the following gift ideas. Note that I have attached a PayPal button below in case you feel generous 🙂

Read on for some great gift ideas for your geeky friends and maybe even for me 🙂
Item Number 1: An AUDIBLE.com Audiobook
Argh! I’m addicted to Audible. This is the easiest way for me to finish reading books as I’ve no more time to sit around a coffee shop and open a book coupled with a latte. There’s a gold membership promo going on now that allows you to buy one book a month only USD $7.00 for the first three months.
On my current wish list are To The Stars: The Autobiography of Star Trek’s Mr. Sulu (because it is read by George Takei himself), Shadow Divers (as it seems to be recommended by a lot of people), and Confessions of an Economic Hitman (although it is available in Fully Booked for a much cheaper price).
If you want to send me Audible credits, you can just click on this fantastic link 🙂
Item Number 2: THREADLESS Tees
When Gabe Mercado walked into mag:net one night, I couldn’t help but notice his Threadless t-shirt. This is geek fashion at its best! Check out the photo catalogue and see what I mean. With the dollar down, one shirt can go for less than P500.00.
Check out the Cow Puzzle tee for instance.
Item Number 3: A portrait done by Nitrozac
I’ve always wanted my face turned into a Nitrozac portrait. It’s a little expensive starting at USD $95.00 but what a novelty!

You can have the portraits customized by Nitrozac as avatar emoticons as well.
Item Number 4: Joy of Tech Tees
Well, need I say more? You can customize the front and back of the tees as well as the color of the shirt. A good number of the shirts are Mac fanboy related though. Not complaining 🙂 This is the link to the Joy of Tech Spreadshirt store.
Item Number 5: A Flickr PRO Account
Well, this needs no re-introduction. It’s the reality that we all have to renew our Flickr PRO’s every year. Why not make this a gift for your special someone?
Item Number 6: Stuff from the VALVE STORE
The Valve Store is also a pretty great place to buy gifts for your gamer friends. The card on top of this post will strike a yuletide candle onto anybody who’s played Portal. That’s the Weighted Companion Cube wishing you a merry one!
