iPad Gifts For iPad Owners Geeks in Your Life - iPad Buying Guide Christmas 2012

Updated on December 14, 2012

iPad Gifts for the discerning Geek

As Christmas nears and you have to pick out gifts for your favorite geek and geekette, surely its iPad gifts that will most fill their pale little eyes with momentary glee!

If you have an iPad addict in the family, you know about it, the iPad hasnt left their side in months and if you have to look at it, perhaps you can get a gift that will dress it up or make it last longer.

The only thing worse than an iPad addict, is an iPad addict without their iPad. iPad fiends have the annoying habit of being discerning gift receivers and in order to best buy the iPad or iPad gifts that will actually be appreciated you will need an inside edge.

As an iPad owner, iPad geek and someone who has been researching iPad accessories, peer reviews and playing first hand since before the actual launch date, I can provide you with the inside edge to iPad gift giving.


Most likely your little (or big) geek already has an iPad, so what do you get the Geek with all the toys?

Well, a bigger version of the toy they already own. iPads are available in 16Gb , 32Gb and 64GB options. With Christmas and Black Fridays Deals and near new options on eBay , you can upgrade your Geek to a 64GB variety for very close to the original 16Gb cost!

Maybe they will be nice and donate the old one to you.

iPad Cases

The iPad is a beautifully designed little gadget, but its aesthetics and design don't prepare it for the rough life its going to live. The iPad needs a case, the ipad needs a Kickstand and the iPad needs a protective screen cover, and if you want the IPad to have some originality, then the Ipad should consider changing its skin.

Many options for iPad Cases incorporate all of the mentioned needs, explore further:

Buy iPad Cases

iPad Kickstands

The iPad is great for multi-media, watching movies, youtube, slide shows and for business geeks using it for presentations, but propping it up against something is just not a very elegant solution. Purchasing a simple iPad Kickstand will solve this dilemma and put a smile on your iPad geeks face.

For a more detailed selection:

iPad Screen Protectors

The iPad Touchscreen is a fingerprint magnet. This opens up a simple and cheap stocking stuffer option for your iPad geek. Simply getting a screen protector will protect from scratches and cut down on smudging.

Another simple solution is a portable screen wipe kit that can be used to keep the iPad dust and smudge free.

iPad Skins

iPad Skins are definitely my favorite iPad accessory. One can find a simple iPad skin to customize and personalize any iPad. Whether your iPad Geek has a Harry Potter obsession or a Salvador Dali fine art taste , there is an iPad skin to fit their needs.

This is another great stuffing stuffer idea for iPad geeks this Christmas.

Ipad skins are not all about customization, they can also offer limited scratch protection on the case and give the iPad a less slippery feel to protect from drops and falls.

See a much larger selection of iPad skins, including Fine Art, custom design and Luxury brand choices.

iPad Bags

Nothing is worse then your annoying little iPad addict pulling their $500+ gadget in and out of a 1990's Jansport backpack or watching them carry around a full size laptop bag.

Its just wrong, the portable size of the iPad should correspond with an appropriately sized carrying case.

If you have the budget, a nice IPad bag is probably one of the best iPad gifts you can purchase, its the type of expense the iPad addict may put off but will be elated to actually add to their iPad geek collection.

If you know your iPad addict then you should know their taste.

The very best and hand picked options for iPad bags are available below - function, fashion and price have all been accounted for out of hundreds of options.

iPad Chargers

Chargers die, Chargers break, Chargers get lost.

Chargers are needed at home, in the car and at the office.

Backups and a variety of chargers are highly suggested, a dead battery makes for an unhappy iPad.

      Nice hub! I am getting an iPad2 soon. Kind of like the iPad smart cover but it's quite expensive. This hub has given me more choices now!

      Ipads and Ipad accessories would definitely make a great Christmas gift. And I am in love with Ipad purse. So anyone buying an Ipad as a gift for females should definitely buy a Ipad purse too. I think they both are made for each other.

      Excellent selection of products Sunforged.
