Geeky gifts for under $50: JOYSTICK-IT iPad Arcade Stick

The holidays are upon us and perhaps the most difficult presents to find are the stocking stuffers, the office gifts, and the small items for Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We found some of the best gifts for under $50 that are sure to please the geeks on your list. If you prefer, you can view these gifts in list format.

Disclaimer: News reports tell us that holiday shopping is way up this year, and we are seeing the proof of that. Some items are going in and out of stock very rapidly, and while we tried to only list items that are still available, we just can't keep up with the shoppers! Our apologies if you find items on this list that are no longer available.
