I thought I’d give everyone a bit of a helping hand and point you in the right direction (or the right direction to point friends and family to) for Geeky Christmas presents of 2010. Some of them have Cyber Monday deals and some have only one available, especially those listed on Etsy, so be sure to act fast if you find something you fancy.
NOTE: There’s no affiliate links, I’m not making any money from any of the gifts listed below, it’s just stuff I like that I’ve found over the weekend and collated just for you.
So here goes…
