Maybe you have kids, or maybe you're close with someone who has kids, but either way you probably have to get some kids a gift during the holidays. Seems like an easy task at first, sure, but one step into a place like Toys 'R' Us can leave you having a panic attack in the middle of the stuffed giraffe aisle (I'm fairly certain this aisle exists).
So why not go a step above: get the kids something that is fun and educational. Help them grow into being every bit the nerd you are (presumably, if you're reading our blog). Heck, if nothing else, you could get a first test-run at these presents, because most of them are pretty cool even if you can grow facial hair.
Below, we've complied 15 of our favorite educational holiday gifts for geeky kids.
