Holiday geek shopping ideas

Last minute shopping? Still looking for the right thing for that special geek in your life? Perhaps you might cater to the fetish for the modern-day Mona? Or maybe a propeller beanie? Some sophomoric seasonal gag gifts? Some retro kitsch? Some religious memorabilia? Some odd surplus? Or if money is no object, gadgets and robots are always a safe bet. But you better hurry - you're down to the wire! thanks, amberglow!

As an expert on sophism, I must say that wasn't particularly sophomoric.

Boy, is it nice to go shopping with you, madamjujujive. You not only skip all the boring stuff, every single cool store you steer us into has a redeeming sense of humour. Thanks!

After perusing the merchandise, I think a lot of friends are going to get this genuine article.

Two more for everyone: God's Love We Deliver catalog (great stuff-some made specifically for the catalog and your purchase helps provide meals for homebound people with aids) and another one(NSFW and possibly offensive, but funny)

perspicuity and kidrobot are great sites, thanks for the tips lisatmh, Hackworth and Pretty_Generic. And amberglow, I see you are offering tips for both those who want to be naughty and nice. Well for the naughty people on your list, there's also the ever popular medical toys. Yikes! ...definitely not safe for work...may not be safe for any environment.

Miguel I want to get on your list, we can start a new mefi fashion meme.

Oh, and hey, how could I forget the hippest of hip online shops?

Don't forget the Holiday Survival Guide for Slackers by MeFi's own Shadowkeeper.
