There was a time where an adult would be embarrassed to ask for a limited-edition Green Lantern statuette in its original box, but the times have changed. Geekdom is in vogue right now, and while you won’t find any comic-book heroes on this list, we’ve got plenty of must-haves for high-end enthusiasts. Tinny ear buds have made most of us forget what real music sounds like, but audiophiles will love the quality of Urbanears headphones. Apple die-hards and casual users alike will appreciate a classy leather iPad case or an iPod dock shaped like a gramophone. These gifts will surprise the writer, photographer, future train conductor or, um, that kid who lives in your basement. Check out all 10 of the presents we picked »

Billy notebook, $145
