Although Writer’s Bloc does not sell electronic gadgets, "I Love Geeks" coffee mugs or Diet Coke, which seems to be the geek drink of choice, we do have several geek-friendly gift items!
Most Geeks I know do not spend much time with pen & paper, instead they prefer to record and schedule using a PDA, laptop, or whatever device is handy. In the professional environment, many Geeks spend hours each week in corporate meetings brainstorming new projects or discussing the progress of current projects. The Behance Action Book is the perfect companion, designed to turn ideas into actions and boost productivity. Each page has 4 sections to help prepare for meetings, focus on action steps, jot down backburner items and keep track of reference items. Reading Behance’s philosophy, called the "Action Method", made me realize this book would be a welcome tool in many a Geek’s laptop bag!
If your favorite Geek is going to have a Behance Action Book, why not pair it with a refillable rollerball pen? I like the J. Herbin Refillable Rollerball Pen because of the smooth way it writes and the wide variety of J. Herbin Ink colors that it can be refilled with.
Geeks often are big fans of board games that involve some strategy. If so, a new Eurogame is a welcome surprise! Eurogames are hugely popular in Germany as well as several other European countries and are currently building popularity in the USA, so why not introduce your Geek to them? A couple of favorites here at Writer’s Bloc are Citadels with the Dark City Expansion and Taluva (any game involving islands and volcanoes has got to be good!).
If your favorite Geek is female, Writer’s Bloc has some fun skins, or stickers, to personalize her laptop and Nintendo DS Lite. These skins can easily be removed and leave behind no sticky residue. My personal favorites are the Cat Laptop Skin and the Wonderland Slim Skin for the Nintendo DS Lite. Your male Geek friend may prefer a sporty skin for his classic iPod such as the iPod 5G Soccer Slim Skin.
