The times when the term nerd meant a technology enthusiast, all devoted to study but with difficulty in socializing, are far away.
Now the term has lost much of its negative meaning and is not only synonymous with a culture (the nerd for the note) but it is also used with a certain pride and a sense of revenge.
A nerd can also be fashionable, both in the way he is dressed and to express his personal passions, with a company that has discovered that being a nerd is cool! So if you have a nerd friend and this Christmas you want to make a gift to him you should not be discouraged if any idea you had was never the right one.
Now you can also give him something, even a nice and useless gadget without running the risk of mortifying him like you used to. Going to search in the sites of online selling you can select the most disparate gift ideas to not disappoint even the most demanding friend; after all, gifts are a matter to be treated with care.
