Shopping for a geek might be the easiest of all shopping challenges because it’s usually not too hard to figure out what they’re into. They’ll usually have something on display that they like, whether it be from Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, anything comic book related, you get the point. All that’s necessary after that is just getting them something from the same genre that they don’t have.
Out of the hundreds of thousands of possible geeky gifts you could buy, these are the 101 best. You simply can’t go wrong with any of these, and it’s simply a matter of drilling down to the type of geek you’re dealing with and picking a gift that fits their MO. Not all geeks are created equally, and you don’t want to assume they like Star Wars just because they like Star Trek. There are some geeks that love it all, but most have their niches carved out and stay loyal.
Here are some of the most technologically advanced gadgets from our technologically advanced society.

Focus on the problem at hand, which is picking from this list of awesome tech gear.
Geeky dads might be the easiest of all types of dads to shop for. Throughout the year they’ve probably let on about some new show or movie they like, and you simply follow up on that with a piece of memorabilia or trinket from the show. Barring that you can simply get them something labeled geek and chances are they’ll like that also, or at least appreciate the gesture. Our favs: Star Wars family car decals, and the USB mini fridge.
