I know gifting may be quite tricky, so just to help you out a little bit, I am going to help you for selecting a gift for your Geek Boyfriend. I am going to classify the gifts into three categories based on your budget, Expensive, Mid-Range and Inexpensive.

If you can get your Geek to hold on for a month for his gift than Apple iPad is what he will want! Apple is going to start shipping the iPad in mid-March, but it is surely worth the wait. After all, it is an Apple product man!
