'Tis the season when the geeky get jolly. Or the jolly get geeky. In honor of the holiday season, I've put together a list of 10 great geeky presents to put on your list. Whether you are geek looking to add to your dragon's horde or you know a geek you think is hard to shop for, I've found something right for every geek taste.

You'll notice the list is fairly short on licensed products. There are a few reasons for that. First, the obvious geek gear is all about Star Wars this year. We compiled our own Star Wars gift guide, so I went light on the Star Wars picks (but there was one item I couldn't resist including). Second, anyone can go out and buy a replica of the One Ring or a remote control that looks like a Star Trek phaser. Last, I tried to find gifts that would appeal to any geek rather than trying to base the choices on being a fan of any one particular thing.

Take a look at the list. Then tell me which ones of my picks are going to go on your holiday shopping list, and what made it onto your personal wish list this year.
