2012 is slowly rolling to a close. Shop fronts, malls and homes have started to imprint our retina’s with Christmas cheer through festively vibrant embellishments. As the festive spirit washes over us, we begin to wonder “what gift do I give”?

The Vamers staff are here to help you out with an assortment of gifts for this Geekmas that would give any self-respecting person a good and proper geekasm.

The 2012 Vamers Geekmas Gift Guide consists of 30 geektastic gifts, all of which have been sourced from local South African suppliers. The items have been split into three separate posts of 10 gifts each, with each post catering for a different budget.

Part I (this post) is for the budget conscious buyer, Part II is for the mid-to-big spender and Part III is for those with deep pockets. Each post has also been conveniently sorted in order from least to most expensive.
