Behold the Geek! Holiday Gift Guide for Geeks 1

You can taste in the air...the season of giving is here! I'm a big fan of the saying, "To give is to receive."...if everybody just gave, nobody would be short of things to receive! So in the spirit of the season (and for fun), I decided to make a holiday gift guide to help you choose the perfect presents for you geeky friends, family or loved ones. The comic book geek, the music geek, the movie geek...they're all needing a little bit of love this festive season, so send some their way!

Let's start with a great and easy gift idea: shirts! If you're looking for an affordable, non-fussy gift to give to a geeky loved one, these printed shirts are the way to go. Here are some places to get you started!

(NOTE: While I'm focusing more on stuff accessible to my fellow Pinoys, I'll be showing my international audience some love too, so no worries!)

Geekerie (

For your discerning geek friends and family, give them the gift of Geekerie shirts. They've got sublime yet bitchin' designs, like the Bazinga! shirt. Pile on your nerd status! (Bazinga! shirt, P350)

T-Tees (

Your music geek Secret Santa will love a shirt from T-Tees. They specialize in fan shirts, but they've got some cool statement shirts too. Grab a 2NE1 shirt from them and get your friend to sing I Don't Care with you. (2NE1 "Let's Play" shirt, P350. Got Cosplay? shirt, P300)

Electromagnetic Tentacle (

When comics and Pinoy pop culture mash up, you get Electromagnetic Tentacle. If your geeky friend likes his or her shirts with a sense of humor, you can't go wrong with these. (Green Parol shirt, P500. Ghost Pedicabber shirt, P500)

The T-Shirt Project (

The T-Shirt Project is an umbrella corporation (hee!) made up of different shirt brands, all of them awesome. Might I suggest giving the gift of an ironic Taga-Iron Man shirt? Or how about a traditional Game Over shirt? I'm lovin' these! (Taga Iron Man shirt from Spoofs, P450. Game Over shirt from Project X, P450)

Threadless (

Threadless has some funky and cool shirt designs anyone can be proud to wear, but their comics and video game stuff are a step above awesome. Give the comic book geek in your life a Captain Obvious shirt and watch them worship you. (Captain Obvious shirt, $18)

ThinkGeek (

Aside from providing geeks with all sorts of geeky doodads, they've got the perfect shirts for your friend who likes their d20's or their overclocked gaming units. (The Dice Are Trying to Kill Me shirt, $15.99 - $17.99. Try Another Hole shirt, $15.99 - $17.99.)

These are just some of the many shirts out there that might be perfect for that special geek in your life. If you have other suggestions on where to get more geeky shirts, leave a comment below! Of course, this is just stop numero uno on our journey to the world of geeky gift giving. Join us next time as we take a look at gifts you can give to your bookish loved ones! Thanks for reading.
