5 Unique Christmas Gift Ideas for Geeks

Christmas is already round the corner, so it’s the right time to start buying gifts for your friends and relatives. It’s not really difficult to find presents for most people, but sometimes it’s really hard to please geeks. If you don’t know what to buy for your geek friends, here are some interesting ideas that can help you:

1. Gloves: Chaval Response XRT

If your geek friend is from a very cold region, you can present him heated gloves from Chaval as a Christmas gift. The Chaval Response XRT is a pair of rechargeable gloves that can understand just how cold your hands are (thanks to the nanotechnologies used in them) and how much heat is needed to warm them up. They’re covered with a thin polymer film from the inside, and it evenly distributes the heat and keeps your hands warm and safe. The only bad thing is that you can’t control the warmth of these gloves, but still, it’s quite a revolutionary gadget, and if you can afford buying a gift for $390, you can be sure any geek will like it.


2. Dock: Easy-Dok CR34

The Easy-Dok CR34 can make a perfect present for a geek who owns many devices and has to charge all of them simultaneously. This multifunctional gadget can charge up to 6 devices at the same time, no matter what operating systems they run, plus it has an AM/FM tuner and an LCD display with an alarm clock – and all for only $99.99.

3. Lens: Holga iPhone Lens

If your friend owns an iPhone and likes taking pics, the Holga iPhone Lens (sold for only $30) will make a perfect Christmas gift for him. This iPhone 4/4S/5 accessory will let you see the world through filters like those of Instagram, and it looks very cool, too, with that rotating disk with 9 different lenses.
These lenses will give you the opportunity to make two, three and even four identical images in one frame, make very detailed macro shots, use red, rose, green, yellow and blue filters, and have a soft lo-fi vignette around your image.

4. Game: Assassin’s Creed III Freedom Edition

For any gamer, one of the latest games would make a very good gift. And a limited edition of a good game would be just perfect, since many gamers usually don’t or just can’t buy those for themselves. Assassin’s Creed III Freedom Edition, which has only 10 copies in the world, is out for an auction at the moment. If you can afford spending more than AU $200 on a Christmas gift, and if you’re lucky enough to win one of the auctions (that will last till December 17 only, so hurry up!), any gamer will love it.
By the way, the proceeds of these auctions will go Sydney Children’s Hospital, so you’ll know your money was not spent on one Christmas gift only – it will help ill children, too.

The Freedom Edition of Assassin’s Creed 3 includes the game (for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3), bonus content, Figurine, Steel Book Case and Exclusive Artwork. A copy of Assassin’s Creed Liberation for PlayStation Vita, an Assassin’s Creed III backpack, Tomahawk USB, Steel Postcard, Steel Book, Notebook, Belt Buckle, Wristband, Lead figurines, Iron-on patch and two Key chains will also be included in the box.

5. Gadget: USB LED Beverage Cooler

Most geeks like cool drinks, but hate going to the kitchen to get them. If your friend is one of such geeks, he’ll love the USB LED Beverage Cooler – a tiny gadget that plugs to the USB port of your computer and keeps drinks cool. A useful and quite an original gift for only $19.99.
