– Flying/running alarm clock
Probably, Every student have overslept study at least once. Getting early is one of the major troubles and causes for missed classes.

The best choice for sleepy college friends this year. There are lots of variations available, for example check this secret agent handgun piece.

This would be great for your friends-biologists. Looking like brain stored in formaldehyde, this candle will create trully atmosphere of geek party.. or just add some abnormality into minimallistic dorm room.

– Custom-made greeting cards
Have no idea what to present your relatives with? Mom-Dad-Granny greetings appear to be difficult, moreover no matter what you bring them, their present always appears to be bigger, smarter, cooler, more expensive and so on (unless they present you with ugly Christmas sweater). In any case, one of the ideas for such presents can be a simple greeting card. For example, you can order your own photo turned into the real greeting card from many services, try this for instance.

After finding all the gifts you also need to wrap them nicely. Do it geeky way as well. Chose one of geek wrapping papers available.
Nooo! One more ugly sweater!
Now, if you’ve already got an ugly sweater for Christmas, it’s reason to organize Ugly Sweater Party. Take your friends to participate in the event, tell them to wear the most ridiculous Christmas sweaters (yeah, those with Santa Claus, Christmas tree, deer, cat in hat, etc.). What else could you do this night? Make (or buy them in your local store) some cookies for the party (sweater-shaped, but of course), vote for the ugliest one at your party. You don’t need to make sweaters yourself or receive them from your granny, by the way. Lots of ugly sweaters are available in stores, make your choice.
Christmas geek activities
What would be a perfect advice is the SIGNAL (yup, it was the signal already) to start searching for board games to play Christmas or the New Year night. Shelves in the shops become empty, so hurry up and find what is good for you.
