With the holidays now just around the corner, I'm getting asked a lot about gifts for geeks. I put together a comprehensive gift guide for photographers earlier this month, but a lot of you aren't photographers, so here's a gift guide for everybody else.
Victorinox Swiss Army Knife
I've had a Swiss Army Knife of one sort or another since I was a kid, an while you can pick up cheap knock-offs from gas stations or DIY stores, I prefer to use the real thing.
The great thing about genuine Victorinox Swiss Army Knives is that there are so many to choose from that you can pick one that fits bets with your lifestyle.
Personally, I find the scissors, pliers and screwdrivers (not to mention the corkscrew and bottle-opener) invaluable on my SwissChamp (which I've had for over 20 years), and I'm sure that hardly a day goes by when I don't use it.

Just Mobile Highway Max car charger
It can be a challenge keeping devices charged up, especially when on the road. To keep my stuff charged up I use a dual-output Just Mobile Highway Max, which has enough kick to keep both my iPhone and iPad (or anything else I happen to have in the car with me at the time) charged up.
