Modis picked out ten great gifts that are sure to make the holidays more merry for the special geek in your life.

Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX

The holidays are a time to come together, but don’t tell that to your geeky friend. Let them hide away in their dimly lit office and grind for gold in WoW or explore the outer regions of Sactuary in Diablo III with extreme precision thanks to the Logitech Wireless Performance Mouse MX’s patented Darkfield Laser Tracking. With a flexible recharging system, they’ll still have enough battery left to wish you Happy Holidays via a Facebook message rather than coming to visit you in person.  $99.99, amazon.com

YOUCH Piranha Plant Earrings

Straight out of Mushroom Kingdom, these earrings are perfect for the Super Mario Bros. fan who would rather not dress up like a portly plumber to show off their 8-bit cred. These earrings are made out of bright, durable materials and make a stunning statement. Best of all, they do not shoot fireballs when someone jumps over them.  $16.00 – $30.00, etsy,com

SONOS Wireless HiFi Systems

Got an audiophile on your list? SONOS products offer deep, clear HiFi sound and instant access to their music collection, as well as streaming services and more than 100,000 free radio stations. Your lucky geek will never have to walk into a room without The Final Countdown announcing their entrance ever again.  $49.99 – $699, sonos.com

Printed Backup Battery for iPhone

Between talking, texting and dominating in Words With Friends, your favorite geek’s iPhone battery can drain quickly. Put a charge into their battery – and their fashion – with this backup battery. Available in four prints and compatible with the iPhone 3G, 4 and 4S, it’s the perfect way to recharge on the go. $39.50, jcrew.com

The Snow White MacBook Apple Mac Decal

Whether they are sleepy, sneezy or grumpy, this adorable decal is sure to make any fan of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs extremely happy. So don’t be dopey or bashful, order it today. Also: Doc!  $6.80, etsy.com

Siftio Cubes Interactive Game Systems

Did you ever play with blocks when you were a kid? Well, Siftio Cubes are a lot like blocks, except they can communicate with each other, learn from each other and play interactive games. So yeah, exactly like blocks! You have to experience Sifteo Cubes in person to see how fun they really are, so give them to someone and make sure to invite yourself over for a play date.  Starting at $129.95, sifteo.com

Silver USB Cufflinks

Close your cuffs and keep your important info close to you at all times with this fusion of fashion and function. Whether your geek carries a spreadsheet for a business meeting or a slideshow for a family reunion, these 2GB USB drives disguised as functional cufflinks make a great accessory.  $100, uncommongoods.com

QR Code Luggage Tag Set

Is your geek a frequent flyer who frequently loses their luggage? Then these QR Clode Luggage Tags are a great idea! They will keep their address and contact information private so that nobody – not even that creepy guy sitting next to them on the plane – can jot down their information. The QR code leads to a secure website that hosts your details, so that only the people you want to find you can track you down. $20, uncommongoods.com

Circuit Board Tie

If you’re going to give someone a tie, make it unique. Made of high quality silk and nylon, this blue and yellow circuit board tie tells the world that the wearer knows their way around both a fashion and electrical circuit. $45, uncommongoods.com

Star Wars Spatula Set

May the force be with you – when you’re flipping Pancakes. Both spatulas in this two-piece set featuring R2D2 and Darth Vader are heat resistant with durable stainless-steel handle, so they can stand up to any light saber attack (or hot skillet).  $24.95, Williams-sonoma.com
