Tactical BBQ Apron
Grilling is a serious pursuit that should only be undertaken if you have the proper tools. With a Tactical BBQ Apron, you’ll have everything you need to make your next cookout truly geekily efficient!. Equipped with a real MOLLE system and five storage pouches, this apron holds everything from utensils to condiments to cell phones. Plus, with “CHEF” emblazoned on the front and back, no one will doubt who’s in charge.
Bag of Holding
As a geek, you have a lot of stuff, and a standard messenger bag isn’t enough to hold it all. The Bag of Holding solves that problem by giving you three roomy compartments. One holds laptops up to 17″ while the others are perfect for carrying peripherals, snacks, books and more. A stylish flap with a front zipper compartment conceals everything for a sleek look that any geeky guy (or gal!) would be proud to sport. While you can always go for the latest Crumpler messenger bag, “Bag of Holding” just has a nicer ring to it, doesn’t it?
Having these awesome gifts on your wish list gives your friends and family the perfect starting point for their holiday shopping. Make sure that everyone knows how to cater to your geek style so that your next birthday or other special event yields gifts that you’ll truly enjoy.
