Hahaha, I never do anything annually. On this blog, I don’t plan. On this blog I am constantly winging it. Check that… I’m constantly winging my winging it. It is so wung that I’m surprise this blog even exists. But here I am… doing a second annual something… and I’m laughing it’s so funny to me. Anyway, the cool thing about this list is that it is even more ultra than last year’s list.
Anyway – here is the new list of Christmas gifts for geeks for 2015. I’m really really hoping that my own loved ones (including you readers out there!!) pay attention to this list! That is for sure. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas… early.

|Zombie Plants – $12.99|
The nerdy botanist in your family may enjoy this gift, which bills itself as “the plant that plays dead when you touch it and then comes back to life!” Also known as the sensitive plant, sleepy plant or touch-me-not, the Mimosa pudicacloses its leaves when touched or shaken.Growing this plant is as simple as just adding water; the peat pellets will expand to form both pot and soil. Zombie plant or not, do not by me a plant. You will need to be descriminating when deciding to purchase this one…

Previous item not full tilt enough for you? Welp, I’m here for you. This time, in honor of Star Wars Ep. 7, we have the I Love you / I Know pajamas. Guys, please read the previous warning… this goes even more so for this item. Ladies?

|Detailed Lunar Surface T-Shirt – $22|
This is a detailed topographic map of the face of the moon that I pulled together from NASA and colorized it for better detail and viewing. It is an American Apparel Fine Jersey T-shirt, that is made with 100% fine jersey cotton combed for softness and comfort. Plus all proceeds keep THinc. running. Bonus!
|Lord of the Rings Fire Pit– $500|
Ok, so this seems a bit expensive. But hey, what do I know. For you über Lord of the Rings fans who need a backyard fire pit… with the inscription from the ring on it… this is for you.
| ||Portal 2 Aperture Labs Messenger Bag – $200|
See, now you’ve done it. Last year? $60. This year, because you chose to be lazy, and to not buy me one when the price was right?? This year the price is $200. Let this be a lesson to you. Geek Chic is in it’s ascendency I tell you. If this bag were a stock it would have grown by over 200%… tell me, can you get more than that out of your Retirement Account? I think not.
|SCOTTeVEST QUEST Vest – $145|
42 pockets for ultimate geekery? Check! Eyeglass chamois? Check! RFID blocking pockets? Check! Admit it, you geek spouses out there, you don’t even know what RFID blocking is, or why one would want this. See? It’s perfect for your über-geek. iPad storage? Yup. iPhone storage? Yup. Serious eighties vest nostalgia? Heck ya. I mean, remember those vests with the sleeves that zippered on and off again? Sooo seriously cool.
|TYLT Energi 2K Travel Charger – $40|
With this smart charger, you have the best of both worlds, i.e., Plug in the wall when convenient, or charge on the go when it’s not. You can fold away the prongs to make carry and travel easy and convenient. The Universal USB Port offers compatibility with all your devices, such as Apple, Samsung, Android or others.

|Ancient Greek Star Wars Prints – $70-$490|
“Travis Durden”, the pseudonymous French artist behind these works should be running for president of France in my humble opinion. Durden is a scholar of antiquities, but adores his Star Wars on the sly… and that shows here in his Historical sculptures that include characters from Star Wars. We have Storm Troopers, Darth Vader, Yoda, it’s the epitome of brilliance in my book. I’m personally still trying to figure out whether Durden utilized CAD, or free-handed each of these designs. Regardless, it’s an inspired idea.
|Clock Ring – $265|
Geeks all remember back in the 80’s when we all purchased our first calculator watch. Because, heck, you’ve got zero geek-cred without having purchased a super lame calculator watch. Right? Welp, in 2015, the modern equivalent is the Clock Ring. I will say this, that they are fairly gorgeously designed. Which is more than I can say about my old Calculator Watch.
|Ghostbusters Phone Case – $250 – $1200|
Well, the Ghostbusters are going to be doing more ghostbusting here soon, so, to celebrate,
|iPhone Book Book – $59.99|
