Apple iPad Mini ($329)

Apple's done it again—created a product you didn't think you need until you decided you didn't even care and went out and bought it. Plus, it really is awesome.


Hopefully, you're not in panic mode yet as to what to give the geek in your life this holiday season, but you should probably get to thinking about what latest gadget or gizmo he or she would love to get their nerdy little hands on. While some of the hottest devices on the market are included on the list for obvious reasons—the iPad Mini is among the most requested consumer electronics this holiday season—we here at eWEEK understand that there's a wide range of tastes (and budgets), not to mention early adopters who may have ruined your dinner date to stand outside the Apple store for eight hours to pick up an iPad the day they went on sale. With that in mind, take a look at 10 gifts that could be perfect for your geeky friends and lovers—from tablets and smartphones to game consoles and retro calculator watches. They span a variety of uses, interests (Lego Frank Lloyd Wright, anyone?) and most importantly, budgets, so that no matter what, you'll find something in your price range. And if you're really feeling generous this year, save your selection until the last slide—we guarantee whoever winds up with that gorgeous object will not be disappointed.
