I know it can be hard for non-geeks to buy gifts for geeks at Christmas time. This year I’ve decided to make a little geek wish list so that we can end the reign of bad geek gifts. I’ve put together a list of 20 items that is pretty general so that there will be a gift for everyone in a fair price range too.

I’ve left the obvious ones out like PS3 or Xbox and games etc… I’m sure that is a given. Right? There are also some RAD DC Universe Converse sneakers that I’ve seen around in stores but can’t seem to find them online anywhere? If you know where to find them please holla!

WARNING – Do not read this blog post if you are already in debt… there are a few dangerously cool items listed below!

1. Marvel Wallet – R345 from Mantality

2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Mug – R120 from Bobbleheads SA

3. Big Bang Theory Board Game – R349 from Digital Sushi

4. AR.Drone 2.0 iPhone and Android Quadricopter – R3 699 from Mantality

5. Spock Bobblehead – R169 from Bobbleheads SA

6. Battery Salt n Pepper – R165 from Mantality

7. Marvel headphones – R199 from Look n Listen

8. Bazinga PJ Pants – R350 from Dark Carnival

9. Batman Cookie Jar – R550 from Dark Carnival

10. Retro MP3 Speaker – R335 from Yuppie Gadgets

Another 10 items to follow tomorrow – that will give you a total of 20 items from cheap to not-so-cheap. Now there is no excuse for Santa to bring us socks or bath stuff this Christmas. Talking of Santa, does anyone have his email or BBM pin so I could send him this list?

Jokes!

Who uses Blackberry anymore!?

More jokes!

But really.
