Put on your coats and caps, everybody! There’s pine needles on the living room floor, snow on the ground, and a scent of cinnamon in the air. Your dogs and cats are tearing apart wrapping paper, your family’s in town and you can’t stop drinking eggnog for some reason. That could only mean one thing, folks, it’s the nondescript religious holiday season! And that means that it’s time to go into credit card debt so that you can show those closest to you that you care, you know? And to make it a little bit easier on you guys, we here at Geeks of Doom have been shoveling our driveways so that we can deliver to you this, 2011 The Holiday Geek Gift Guide!

Now, thereâ€™s going to be some expensive stuff on here, so make sure itâ€™s someone you REALLY care about. Weâ€™re talking share the same bed kind of care about. Or, at least live in the same house.
