Geeky gifts. No Star Trek/Wars anything—we have to draw the line somewhere—but you'll still find some cool tech toys here.

Drink your hot drinks scientifically. details

Sterling silver pendant of a caffeine molecule on a silver chain. Designed by a wayward Ph.D. post-grad in molecular biophysics. details

For the pierced biologist: these 3D double-helixes are about one inch long, so they're not very gaudy, and they're coated with pure silver. details

Put a coin on it, and brown or white kitty (your choice) pops out of the brown cardboard box with Japanese writing on it and grabs it, then meows. Everybody wins. details

iPad case has rubber feet, felt backing, and retractable kick stands to prop your iPad up at an angle, and cut-outs to give you access to the important plugs and switches. And, everything you view will look like it's on an Etch-a-Sketch screen. details

Nine ceramic computer keys let you build your own geeky Menorah. details

So futuristic, so useful: this cube projects a glowing red keyboard onto a flat surface, and then it works as a real keyboard. See the video. The marketing plays up the iPad/iPhone angle, but it works with Android devices, Windows, Mac OS, and Blackberry tablets. details

A sneering king of rock and roll holds 8GB of data. details

Make up your own messages, and they display in different patterns. How about "Help, I'm a fan"? details

Read the shirt out loud, and if you still don't get it, listen to the theme song from the 1960s Batman TV show, especially starting at about 0:37. details

If Super Mario had a Christmas wreath, this would be it. 10.5" x 13" x 1.125", and requires two AA batteries to really sparkle. details

Available in men's, women's, and kid's sizes. And hoodies! details

Set of 3 almost 4" wide. If you charge them up and drop them on someone who used to play a lot of Space Invaders while they're trying to sleep, they'll find it very memorable. details

Plug it into a USB port, and it does absolutely nothing. Then again, it takes absolutely no care, and comes in a box very similar to that of the original 1970s Pet Rock. Watch the video of the USB Pet Rock in action. details

Tico the fairy teaches Princess Ruruna how to design a relational database, understand the entity-relationship model, use SQL, make it more efficient and secure... all as a manga comic book! details
