2011 Geek Stocking Stuffers You Don't Need To Order
With Christmas less than a week away now is the time when you start scrambling for those last minute stocking stuffers. Unfortunately there normally is not a lot of time to order one from online and pay the excessive overnight shipping. Luckily we have a list of items sure to please that special Geek all while saving on shipping.
1) Cell Phone Cases:
A new cell phone is one of the most desired gadgets this holiday season so why not give them something to help protect that investment with a nice case. Cases help protect against bumps and scratches in style. Most local cell phone retailers and big box stores offer a wide assortment to protect and allow your Geek to display his persona.
2) iPad Cases:
With all the competitors on the market, the iPad still tops the list as the most popular gadget gift this year. iPad accessories give the device durable protection and convenience on-the-go. With great features like auto-securing magnetic flaps, built-in stands, and suede interiors, the right case can make all the difference.
3) iTune Gift Cards:
With most people getting or having some type of Apple product here is one item where you can't go wrong. Sure gift cards can be passe but in this instance your letting your loved one get what ever they want with out having to worry about their pocketbook for a change.
4) USB Memory Sticks:
While using the cloud is becoming more common there are still those who like to keep some data free from prying eyes. A gift of a USB Memory Stick is keen just for that. What better way to say "Merry Christmas" than with a 32 GB USB Stick.
5) Lego Minifigs:
One thing every Geek can't deny is their unending love of toys. This year get them a few packets of Lego Minifigurs that can be picked up at most retailers. These individual packets are like little grab bags where you never know what your going to get. Ranging from $1-$2 depending of where you pick them up these make a great small addition to any stocking.
6) USB Chargers:
With todays electronics using the now standard USB cords to charge having multiple ways to charge those devices are a must. Picking up some universal USB chargers for the home and car will definitely be a welcome addition to any Geeks arsenal.
7) Magazine Subscriptions:
If your Geek has an iPad or iPhone then a digital magazine subscription would be a great addition. They can get the latest issue without worrying about killing any trees. Unfortunately not all magazines have figured out ways to offer the same great subscription deals for digital as they do for print so I recommend finding a magazine that offers access to the digital version with each paid subscription, such as Wired does.
These are just a few of great stocking stuffers available around town. What are some of your favorite items you would love to receive this Christmas morning? Let us know.
