Gone are the days when "geek" meant pocket protectors and poor social skills. Geeks everywhere have embraced their geekiness and done some crazy awesome stuff, you know, like create the internets in all of its infinite glory! We love the geeky guys in our lives: their love of gadgets, dedication to explaining tech processes to us, and the way they light up when we encourage their geeky hobbies. Tell your geek guy how much you care this Valentine's Day with one of these quirky gifts.
The Gaming Geek is always in need of technology that will keep him running raids smoothly, or leading his special ops team to victory. The (1) Razer Mamba Wireless Mouse ($130) is praised by gamers everywhere for being the fastest performing mouse on the market.
Your Pop Culture Geek probably has plenty of opinions on the films in his DVD and Blu-Ray collection. But we're pretty sure he (rightly!) considers The Coen Brothers and Bill Murray to be worthy of his adoration. The (2) Coen Brothers Movie Collection ($43) and the 1984 Bill Murray Collection ($23) (2) are staples he shouldn't go without!
If his film collection is already stocked full of funny guy comedies, add to his book collection with (4) Zombie Spaceship Wasteland ($15) by Patton Oswalt. The comedian writes essays on all things funny, including (ehem) a hilarious comic book-esque parody on the teen vampire craze.
Get your Retro Geek a pair of Interlocking Lego RIngs ($125 for 2) in a adorable demonstration of luurve. His current obsession with Minecraft started with Tetris and Legos, and he's been obsessed with fitting things together ever since. Show him how well you both fit together with these Lego cast metal rings.
A Gadget Geek deserves a new toy to fawn over, like the (5) engravable Victorinox 4GB Swiss Army Knife USB Laser Pointer Memory Stick ($76) or the (7) LED Binary Watch ($70). We love that both are traditional, romantic guy gifts with a decidedly geeky twist!
And if your man happens to be a Computer Geek, we're sure he'll love toting his phone, laptop, iPad, and other accessories around in the (6) Voltaic Messenger Solar Bag ($199) Time in the sun is all it takes to charge all his gadgets and keep him plugged in for work, for play, and for sending you sweet nothings via text or Google Talk!
