Techies love gadgets — there’s no question about that. So you can’t go wrong by giving them a gadget that holds even more gadgets. This one-of-a-kind cell phone case not only holds your phone, but also keeps trimming scissors, tweezers, a bottle opener, screwdrivers and even a nail file close by. It comes in four different colors and isn’t heavy or bulky even with all of the goodies it carries inside. (Komando, $17)

Want to give something practical to a hard-core techy? Well, they love sharing music and videos with all of their friends, so this five-way headphone splitter is perfect. It has five jacks for attaching headphones or iPod devices, which means five people can all listen in at the same time. It can also be used to connect multiple music players at once, which is great for mixing music. (Amazon, $15)
