Gear For Geeks
In case you’re unfamiliar with the popular online store for self-proclaimed “geeks”, let us introduce you. ThinkGeek is a very popular website that sells an impressive variety of products targeted towards programmers, Linux hackers, and open source “geeks”.
The ThinkGeek website was originally conceived and launched back in 1999 in Northern Virginia. It started off as an offshoot of an internet service provider that was created by ThinkGeek founders in 1995. ThinkGeek’s product lines include (but aren’t limited to) geeky t-shirts, themed mugs, gadgets, and a variety of other gifts for the wonderful geek in your life.
Once you’re on the site, you’ll find a wicked variety of geek toys, geek apparel, geek gadgets, geek office supplies, electronics, children’s gifts, and books that are all wonderfully geeky. You can also search products by special interest categories which include cult classics like Minecraft, Star Wars, Star Trek, Dr. Who, Portal, Tolkien, and Game of Thrones.

Other themes you’ll spot on the ThinkGeek website include LEGO, Firefly, Big Bang Theory, Zombies, and, of course,…bacon. If you’re a prankster, you might feel right at home shopping at ThinkGeek. You’ll find devious products created for hilarious office and dorm pranks. If you’re stuck on what to get that special geek in your life for their birthday or Christmas, you can also search for gifts or gift cards on the site.
