Looking for that last minute gift for your Design or Web Geek friend? Well, for the third year in a row, here are our picks. Feel free to add your picks in the comments at the bottom! We’ll add more as the team adds their picks.

Jason’s Picks

This year is particularly interesting, as “the internet of things” slowly evolves, we have some amazing connected devices. Here’s mine.

DJI Phantom 2 Vision Quadcopter

Ever since I saw these little guys buzzing around the playa at Burning Man, I knew I needed one. Merging photography/video with quadcopter functionality is just about the super-nerdiest thing I could ask for from Santa.

Google Glass Explorer Edition

I promise to not wear these all the time everywhere and look like a buffoon. However, I’m super-excited about the hands-off potential of these wearable devices.

MakerBot Replicator 2X

Another game-changing paradigm shift. 3-D printing will inspire generations of geeks for years to come.

Kim’s Picks

Laboratory Shot Glasses

Are your favorite chemical experiments those that involve C2H6O, a bit of C6H12O6, and H2O infused with CO2? Then you’ll need a set of Laboratory Shot Glasses, complete with mixing pipettes. They’re the perfect gift for the geeky mixologist.

Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp

Photoluminescent Stones

Shawn’s Picks

Marvel Unlimited All-Access

I’ve longed for a Netflix-style subscription service for comic books. Marvel Comics is the only company offering a subscription-based model at the moment. For the comic-nerd in your family (that owns an iPad or tablet), the Marvel Unlimited service is a solid gift.

Amber’s Picks

Arctic Stripe iPhone Backup Battery

Fujifilm X100S Digital Camera

TYPE NERD – Temporary Tattoo

Married to the Sea . 16 x 20 giclee


8″x10″ Peace & Quiet Letterpress Print
