What's more fun than ornaments, holiday cards and gift toppers? All the above with a geeky twist! We rounded up our favorite tech and design inspired holiday essentials that will give any design enthusiast, gamer and Tweet freak something to nerd out on.

Videogame Controller Ornaments: These ornaments are laser cut into the shape of classic videogame controllers we're all familiar with. The ornaments are made from acrylic and come in an electric blue, white or black, which will give your holiday decorating a modern edge.

3D Advent Calendar: One of our favorite things is checking out modern interiors, so we were very delighted with this 3D advent calendar by //lauravainola.com/02.html

. Playing upon the traditional advent calendar, this one is set in a modern home where you lift rugs and open double doors to get to the holiday goods.

Retro Super Mario Cards: This set of cards is for the Mario fans out there (and hopefully you know 4) because it comes in a set of 4 that includes all the classic Mario characters like the Goomba and the Star Power-up.

Ribbonesia Gift Toppers: Ribbonesia is an art project by illustrator Baku Maeda, who uses ribbon to create animal figures. We love his entire product line of animals but especially the blue bird that looks just like the Twitter bird. It'd be fun to top small gifts with the Twitter bird.

Pantone Baubles: These Pantone baubles are cool enough to excite any design enthusiast. Share your love for Pantone's official colors and add some design chic to your tree with these. The baubles come in turquoise, green, red, purple and yellow.

Code Cards: All developers should know the code to a good cup of egg nog. This collection of letterpress cards includes a recipe to making egg nog in four different languages: Javascript, PHP, Phython and Ruby. You can send them out to your developer buddies or keep them as unique recipe cards for yourself.
