While the meek may inherit the earth, the geeks will always be there to run it for them. Especially since the term "geek" has gone from being derogatory to being reclaimed as a symbol of intellectual pride. In this light, ThinkGeek coupon codes may be one of the best things that a person with a geek in their lives can have on hand when a special occasion comes around.
Have you ever found yourself stumped when looking for a Christmas or birthday gift for a geeky friend or co-worker that will be both appreciated and appropriate? Then you need to find an online coupon source and get yourself some ThinkGeek coupons. You can then head off to the Think Geek site, discount tool in hand, to do some serious shopping.
ThinkGeek's an awesome site filled with all sorts of cool stuff that geeks love. From obscure humor references printed on t-shirts designed to confound those not in the know to cute, Japanese-themed toys that click and whirr, there's something there for every geek to fall in love with.
However, if you're the kind of person who doesn't even know (or want to know) the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars, then you might be in some trouble. You wouldn't want to get your "strictly plushies" geek a cube war toy, or a gadget geek a bunch of soft cuddly things that look like food. So despite the perfect source, the dilemma still remains: what to get your geek?
If you're completely lost about geeky gifts, you may want to do some research before you purchase anything. Don't worry, the website will still be there when you get back.
The first thing about gift-giving is to know your subject. Casually walk up to your intended recipient in his or her natural habitat - in his office cubicle, for example, and make small talk. Take note of the things that are on their desk. Is there an army of model figures of superheroes? Does everything have a semblance of a face and oversized eyes with well-defined lashes? Do you see strange metal insignias that look something like the letter "A" on his lapel? Or is all you see a high-powered computer, a 1TB external drive, and various wires and devices?
Pick out an obvious item and ask them about it. If it's something they're really into, they'll start to talk about it, and you can get a feel of which hobbies and interests they're passionate about. If your geek mentions that they're starting a collection, or are missing pieces from one, then you've hit the jackpot. All you need to do is get that missing piece, and you are golden.
If you still don't have a clue, a witty t-shirt never ceases to be a fun gift - just make sure your geek doesn't collect that, either.
