It’s officially that time of year, when you start pulling out your own hair (or someone else’s, if it’s handy) and braving mobs of likewise desperate shoppers looking for the absolute perfect gift for that special geek on your list. And sometimes you have some less-special people on your list — but have to buy crap for them, anyway.

We’re here to help with both of those problems in our annual Naughty and Nice Gift Guide. We’ve been doing this for a few years now, and we think we’re finally getting it down. Here are some great suggestions for the people you love and some less-great suggestions for the people you’re honor-bound to cough up some dough for. And for extra convenience, we’ve organized it all into a handy visual for you.
