I chose the “Girly Girl” geek gift ideas because I think buying for this demographic has to be one of the harder ones. I consider myself a geek and obviously a girl, but I would love Storm Trooper, Marvel or DC Comics items just as much as I love pink/girly items. Finding girly geek gifts that infuse both qualities is not as easy as you would think.
Geek Shirts for WomenThinkGeek.com offers a lot of t-shirts, and a few dresses, that were designed for geek ladies.
Some of my favorites:
- I’m Here Because You Broke Something
- Serenity in Hanzi
- Geek Inside Maternity Shirt
Hello Kitty Mimobot USB Flash DriveThis is definitely “girly” and a necessary item for geeks. I personally have an R2D2 USB, but Hello Kitty is cool too. The Mimobots range from 2GB to 64GB. Other USB options:
Small and simple, MiniDock enables users to make the most of their upright devices while they charge.
This particular bag has a great slot for your iPad and padding for a laptop. It has an Apple adapted and two others attached.You just plug your bag in and wait until it is fully charged and then carry it with you as a back up.
Powerbag offers backpacks, messenger bags and briefcases in multiple colors.
Bluelounge claims it works with 1838 products so I am hoping to be able to charge a camera and the Kindle.
Plug Hub Under-Desk Cord Management by QuirkyWomen, whether girly or not, like things organized. This item allows you to use your favorite power strip, but also manage all the messy cords.
This is really a good gift for just about anyone.
Nintendo DSi XL (Metallic Rose) with Mario vs. Donkey KongThe Metallic Rose Nintendo DSi XL system, Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem game pack, AC adapter, rechargeable battery and two DSi styluses. It comes with three pre-installed titles – Brain Age Express: Math, Brain Age Express: Arts & Letters and Photo Clock, and two free applications, Nintendo DSi Browser and Flipnote Studio.
I highly recommend throwing Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga to make it extra geeky and really cool.

Pink LCD TVIf you know a geek with a pink splattered office this may be the perfect gift.
USB Aromatherapy Oil BurnerThis USB warms up aromatherapy oil, freshens the air and and can improve ones mood.
From ThinkGeek.com -“Step one, add one drop of the included aromatherapy oil onto the little X. Step two, insert into a USB drive (horizontal drives preferred to prevent drips). There is no software to run, no drivers to install, as the USB Aromatherapy Oil Burner just needs to get warm. And then the lavendery smells spread around your office and put you in a better mood.”
