What to Get the Geek Who Has Everything

Share This Post

This is the third in a 3-part series on what to get for the advertising professional who has everything. Today: The Geek.
Around our office, the term “geek” isn’t the insult it is in most places. At Current, the Geeks are the fine folks who make our websites and smartphone apps sing and dance. Without them, our pretty photoshop files just kind of lay there. What they do is an absolute mystery to me and they make me look good at every turn, so if you are like me, you want to keep them happy. So here are a few gift ideas for the geek in your life.
1) Geek Work Shirt
The fine folks over at have a site full of “stuff for Smart Masses,” but this one really caught my eye. Sadly, I don’t have the tech cred (or the hipster swagger) to pull off an ironic work shirt, but I would totally wear this if I could.
2) Coding Books
The internet is a constantly evolving thing and the coding behind the curtain is always changing too. Now I’m not going to pretend that I know anything about programming, but I’m told this is where you start if you want to learn to write Perl script.
3) Matias Folding Keyboard
I’m actually kind of coveting this one. A folding FULL keyboard for your Mac. The ultimate in portability for the Geek on the go.
4) Keurig Single Cup Brewing System
Most of our geeks (and most I’ve met) run on caffeine and code. And the last thing we want is for them to be up wandering around when they have crazy deadlines they need to be meeting. So this single cup coffeemaker will keep them at their desks and hopped up on C8H10N4O2.
5) Make Your Own Zombie Kit
Our Head Geek-in-Charge, The Bouv, loves Zombies. It’s his thing. And if your geek is anything like him, this make your own Zombie action figure kit might be just the thing to make sure your internet stays on and your code keeps flowing.
