The Geek Store - Top Ten Cheap Geeky Gifts under $20

Updated on August 31, 2013

Get your Geek on Right Here!

The definition of a Geek differs slightly between sources and some seem to confuse a Geek with a Nerd.

A Geek, in my opinion, is someone who not only likes a particular thing, he or she is bordering on an obsession! That being said, it isn't bad and almost everyone has a little Geek in them.

Whether you like something strange or just a lof of one object, you can be a Geek. I like mechanical things so I am "Geekily Mechanically Inclined."

This little website has several objects that you can either buy for yourself or for your fellow Geeks. All are intended for the budget-minded and are under $20.00.

Have fun shopping and please don't play with the images!

On the 13th Day of Christmas, My Geek Love Gave to Me...

When I went to High School, we didn't have Nerds or Geeks. In my school, they were just known as the Chess Club kids.

I was in the Chess Club, but was never considered a Geek. Nowadays, I am probably Geekier than most. Is "Geekier" really a word?

Whether you admit you're a Geek or not, you probably know many Geeks. I know several as I used to work in the computer field. However, Geeks are not limited to computers, many that I know just love gadgets. Remember Inspector Gadget and the saying, "Go Go Gadget Arms?" If you do, you are probably a Geek.

Was MacGyver a Geek? He was probably the biggest Geek on television several decades ago. I still watch those shows as he always does some interesting things that I missed in previous reruns.

Whether you are a Geek or not, you need some Geek Stuff. Hopefully you will find it here!

Great fun item and gift!

Molecular Model Kit - Create your own chemical substances. Well, not really!

If you are planning on nuclear fision, I don't think this is the set to buy.

However, it is fun, especially for the scientifically minded, to build your own chemical substances and these look really cool just sitting around.

Who knows, you may create your own new substance and be honored with a Nobel Prize.

 

Crazy Aaron's Thinking Putty - Magnetic Gallium Substance - A metal that melts in your hand

Gallium is actually a metal but it is so different in composition, it is mold-able and actually melts in your hand!

It is non-toxic and many have used this for magic tricks like the melting spoon.

 

Magic Rocks Magic Sea Monsters Kit - I remember Sea Monkeys growing up. These are similar.

These are the same as the original Sea Monkeys but using the word "Monster" must've been a decision to help these sell.

They are actually very fun and I had them as a child. You can watch them grow and they get larger and reproduce. Despite what you may think, these will live a long time if you take care of them and keep them fed and the water level up.
