Geeky Holiday Gift Guide, Black Friday, & Cyber Monday Sales 2016!


It’s that time of year again! Time to stress out about what to buy your loved ones!!! What? That’s not what you were thinking?  Well if you were, and if your loved ones are of the geeky variety, have I got a few holiday gift suggestions for you!

So, I collected a lot here. Not all of these folks are doing Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals (some may also just not be live until the day) but I figured most of the stuff is good for all your holiday needs regardless.  [Editor’s Note: All affiliate links in this post will be marked “AL.” If you’re not interested in anything I’ve got here specifically, shopping through the affiliate links will still help me out!]
