Ten Last-Minute Gifts for Geeks

Category: UncategorizedTags: , , , ,

As Christmas shopping ramps up to a frenetic pace in these final days, BillShrink’s got you covered for all the geeks in your life. Order online by end of business day today with 2-day shippingf and you’re in the clear for a Christmas delivery.

For the science geek:

  • The engineer on your Christmas list will be thrilled with a watch that displays time in binary. Remember, there are 10 types of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don’t.
  • Order your geek’s DNA portrait, the most personalized piece of art out there. The price starts at $200 for a mini-portrait or $390 for a full portrait from DNA 11. (DNA 11 also does fingerprint and kiss portraits.)

For the media geeks:

  • The Flip Ultra HD Camcorder is a pocket-sized camcorder capable of capturing 120 minutes. Especially perfect for new parents eager to document their children’s every burp and giggle. $150 on Amazon.com
  • The Slingbox Pro HD is a television addict’s dream. Gain access to all your home entertainment – cable TV, DVR – remotely from a laptop or smartphone. All you need is a wireless connection. Great gift for a sports geek who hates missing a single minute of game time. About $240 from Amazon.com.
  • The Canon Rebel XSi Digital SLR Camera is perfect for aspiring photogs or a frequent traveler. Grab it from Best Buy at $650.

For the hard-core gamer geek:

  • Help elevate your favorite gamer geek’s gaming experience with a pair of really nice headphones. We’re impressed with the Bose Quiet Comfort headphones (and its $300 price tag). If you’re looking to spend less than that, try these Sennheiser Noise-Isolating headphones at $80. Both are available at Best Buy.
  • Best Buy offers a wide variety of gaming chairs ranging from the pretty casual BoomChair to the futuristic STEALTH gaming chair. Both are compatible with game consoles, audio systems, etc. for the ultimate gaming experience. Expect to pay between $80 and $150.

For the lady geek:

  • Wow your lady friend a well-chosen bauble from the Molecular Muse shop on Etsy.com, which stocks jewelry inspired by molecules found in nature. Choose from a dopamine love necklace, base pair earrings, a neuro charm bracelet, and more. Be prepared to drop between $40 to $150.
  • Help her bling out her iPhone or Blackberry. Overstock.com offers a dizzying array of protective cases. Choose from flashy rhinestones, discreet leather, and everything in-between. The cases average around $10 each.

And lastly, for the Star Wars geek (now that’s a redundant term) — this Tauntaun sleeping bag will keep your chosen geek warm on camping trips or, you know, on the planet Hoth. $99 from ThinkGeek.com.
