Submission + - Geek gifts for non-geeks?

guruevi writes: "I have a simple question for my fellow geeks and geekettes. Are geek gifts accepted these days by non-geek members of society or is it still a niche market reserved for geek girl- and boyfriends, coworkers or self?

Geek gifts are sold everywhere from the Apple iPod to Caffeinated Soap on ThinkGeek and I can imagine the iPod being a popular gift. But do people accept the fact that we are geeks and thus bring in things from our world to theirs (like the exchange of beads for gold and firewater in the 1500's) or do they just chuckle at it or do they get a glaze in their eyes as to say "why didn't you just get me some cologne"."

Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards. -- Aldous Huxley
