Fun Gifts for Computer Nerds

Nerds, not to be confused with twats(video game addicts) are sometimes seen as single-minded individuals with little social skills. Although the social skills aspect is often not related to the word, a computer Nerd could be regarded as someone who knows a little more than the speaker about computers. They don’t necessarily have to be branded as people without social skills.
