You’ve heard me say a time or two that I am a self proclaimed tech geek. I love my computers, gadgets, and iPhones. I love to try out the newest techy toy and I love finding fun and unique gifts. Technology is power, and fun! I would easily give up my cable TV as long as I had my computer and internet, a move my husband would strongly disagree with. I was excited when the iPad came out and just as disappointed that I do not have one. So if anyone has one they would like to donate feel free to send me your email I will be happy to send you my address.
When I had the chance to work with Think Geek, one of my IT guy (at works) favorite stores, I had a hard time choosing what would be fun to review. Of course I always have a hard time when it comes to fun/want versus logic/need. Either way it was great browsing through the site of unique gifts. My kids would have LOVED this jelly fish mood lamp, however I did not chose this.
Unique Gifts From Think Geek
How funny, while browsing I found this Outdoor LCD Window Thermometer. I actually already own this, my son gave it to me as a gift. He won it at school I think.
Now if I was thinking practical, logical, and something we would use, this Sonic Bomb Alarm Clock with Bed Shaker is definitely on the top of unique gifts found at Think Geek. This is something we could use in the Shibley household. Seriously I think I’m the only one that hears an alarm clock in the morning. I think if we had a fire alarm going off my entire house would still be sound asleep. I may just have to get this for Buddy for Christmas (update: we have two of these in our house now), we are trying to teach him to be responsible and get up on his own in the morning.
