Site offer Last year, our Geeks Gifts for Christmas offer proved to be a roaring success with lots of you taking advantage of our great deals on both tech and not-so-tech titles in time for Christmas. In fact, it was so good we even ran a sequel.

Well, in 2007 we have decided to make it bigger and better – so we're producing a trilogy of Geeks Gifts for Christmas. Starting off well, getting better in the middle and finishing with a bang, we think there will be something for everyone in here, even your Granny who's never seen a computer in her life.
