2012 Nerd Gift Guide: Molly

Let's face it: if you're reading this, there's a good likelihood you're a dude (50% at least) scrambling to find a gift for the lady in your life (or dude, but I'm a lady, so that's what we're going with) before Xmas comes and she realizes you think more about Skyrim than how best to express your love for her. But, lo, she too is a nerd, and that's when you realize: you can't eff this one up.

As the only member of the Nerds of a Feather team with ladyparts, I feel obligated to provide a list of nerdy thing geared toward the nerdy lady in your life. Pretty much I'm just going to show you everything that's in my Amazon wishlist, but if your female friend is anything like me, these things are sure to woo.

For the literary, bling-worthy nerdy lady

Sharing a book with someone is special. What sorcery it is to share separate memories of the same thing! Let your boo know that you love her brain and her decolletage by giving her real fake jewelry from her favorite fiction (and its movie).

For the bakin' nerdy lady

If the fastest way to your nerdy Xmas elf crush is through her kitchen (not a euphemism), give her the gift of geeking out while on a homemade sugar high.

For the one you wanna stay with

In it for the long haul? Show her you're thinking long-term. Forget Ikea; real men buy oak furniture and get excited about raising the Next Generation of geeks. (See what I did there?)
