We all wait for those special days every year which brings joy, fun, happiness and we get some leisure time away from our routine work. Holidays are not holy days in fact it is the time when you party hard with your friends and relatives. You become a free soul and enjoy sometimes with friends and sometime alone in peace. I know some geek friends who are bit different from what we call happy go lucky people.
They have these different likes even when we talk about gifts for them. This holiday season I thought to present my special genre of friends who are designers with some unique ideas as per their taste and hence researched for some cool gift ideas for them. I was astonished to see the extent gifts can go nerdy. I liked many but I had a budget so had to stick to some. Here is my shared list of those cool gift ideas and I hope you like these too.
Last week I was talking about the finger painting of Morgan Freeman done mainly on iPad and then realized the need of an iPad stand. This high design iPad stand can be proved very impressive and usable stuff for any geek designer who spends lot of time on his or her iPad. The looks are fantastic. This one is a nice gift for such artistic people with a difference.

Furnishing the office may come as a second thought to your geek friend but you as a real friend can gift him or her with these cute pillows for the chairs which they would love to have.

This one I found was as nerdy as I could imagine. I am quite fascinated by star wars and hence thought that a “May the light source with you” lamp for the room of a geek designer can be proved as the best gift. Geeks have no time zones for work or for doing anything else so giving them a lamp which will lighten up their surrounding with such a nerdy cover is a nice idea.
Creativity has no boundaries. Who can understand it better then designers? Turning those wasted sticky notes into beautiful 3D shapes can attract any creative person. This gift will provide several ways to turn those wasted notes into beautiful shapes. It will definitely shape up the boring work area of any designer.
Here you get a genuine looking leather case in the shape of a book to hold your Mac pro. Is it not cool to move around with a book in hand which is actually your Mac? It will also protect the hard work stored in there with a pinch of novelty.
I know every designer would love this customized sign which can be used inside or outside as per their choice.
Most of time designers struggle with memory and keeping a secondary one is mandatory for those who are doing some serious work. Storing and taking backups is an essential part of their work routine and hence giving them a nerdy USB is a good idea of gift these holiday season.
