Impressing the geeky woman is a whole other ball game. She may not be swayed by current fashion trends. She may not care about spending on fine jewelry. Or handbags. Or shoes. However, she is not terribly hard to please either. Appeal to her sense of humor and to her love for gadgets, video games and Lego, and that should be all you need.
1. Space Invaders Tights
Geeky can be cute. Many got a taste of this first hand on purchasing a pair of Space Invaders tights. Designed by James Lillis, these video game inspired tights are adorable. The brightly colored characters from the popular video game multiply the cool quotient of this basic pair of tights. The $80 price tag may be a deterrent for some. But most Space Invaders fans will be happy to buy this super-cute pair, no matter what the price is.
2. Crystal Lipstick Mouse
The Crystal Lipstick Mouse is the girly answer to all things tech. It looks like a lipstick, but it isn’t a lipstick at all. The Crystal Lipstick Mouse is a pretty-looking computer mouse. The crystal part is true though. The mouse is studded with authentic Swarovski crystals. Available in black, white, grey and pink, the Crystal Lipstick Mouse is portable. It fits into the smallest purse and comes with a lithium battery that powers on for hours. Priced at $19, this is a cool yet feminine geek magnet.

It is colorful. It is cute. It is ultra-quirky. It is a dream come true for the geeky chick. The Lego purse is everything you could want it to be.
