Christmas is right around the corner, so it's time to start thinking about awesome gifts to pick up for your friends and family.

Your book-loving father? How about a Barnes & Noble Nook? Your accident-prone brother? Why not a tough laptop or rugged phone? Your social-networking sister? The Sony VAIO X-Series netbook should do the trick.

But what about your most seriously geeky friend? You know, the one who wants you to call him "Ian Thornwald the Dwarf-Slayer" (the name of his level-70 Paladin), the one who dragged you out to wait in the pouring rain for the release of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and the one who gets so many shipments from Woot.com that the site's customer service department has him on speed-dial? I mean, what do you get a person who has already preordered Starcraft II?

We looked around the Internet, and found some gifts that even a geek who has everything would appreciate.
