I’m a hard guy to shop for.
My job, being what it is, allows me access to all kinds of gadgets and gizmos that would normally be fodder for gift giving during the holiday season. The problem is, when I read most ‘gift guides’ produced by sites like The Verge or Wired, I already own most of these items. And the ones I don’t have? I’m just not that into. So while holiday guides are entertaining, for me they’re never that helpful, and I can only imagine what my family goes through trying to shop for me. So, for those of you out there that have a similar problem, look no further.
The cynic in you could say that this post is just a blatant attempt at generating traffic, and the thought did cross my mind. When you run a site like this one, you do spend a fair amount of time thinking about ways to increase your audience. Traffic generation aside, I curated list below to help you, my dear readers, find a special something for that hard-to-buy-for nerd in your life. You know, that guy or gal in your life who has all the toys one would normally buy in situations like this. I chose these items because I’ve actually purchased them. So in that regard, they come with a nerd-stamp of approval. For whatever that’s worth.
