It's pretty tough to find any quality tech south of $50, but tech inspired decor is a bit easier. For the person who loves tech on your gift list, here are a few ideas that won't break the bank. From coasters, to pillows, to shower curtains, there are plenty of ways to liven up - or geek out your home. Here are a few picks of tech inspired gifts for that geek on your gift list.
