Welcome to The 2010 Gift Guide for That Nerdy, Design-Savvy, Coffee-Loving Writer in Your Life.

Nerds and coffee nuts can be impossible to shop for. Sure, they know what they want. But you’d be hard pressed to get them to tell you the details of what’s on their Christmas wish list.

If you’re not sure what to get that special someone for Christmas, then let this guide be a guide to you.

  • Has your nerd hinted about wanting a new hard drive for their laptop?
  • Does your coffee nut still use a drip coffee maker?
  • Is your designer friend’s office lacking wall decor?
  • Is your significant other trying to kick off their writing career?

Then look no further, my friends! Below you will find professional recommendations for all these needs and more. Only the finest gifts recommended.
