So you found that perfect gadget to give to your geeky pal. You don't expect to wrap it in just any kind of wrapping paper do you? You gotta impress from the get go and we have just the stuff to make the kids around the tree flip their... you know.

First there's Tweetwrap from Samsung, which pastes tweets using your fave hashtag or username throughout a chosen pattern. You can then either download the pattern to print on your home printer or have Samsung send you a free roll.

And then there's QRapping. Artist Justin Gignac designed this paper that uses QR codes as a pattern. Using a barcode scanning app on your mobile, you snap a picture of one of the codes and it will upload a special video you can only see via the QR code. Each code has a different video, and the wrapping paper holds 50 different codes within the pattern. Two 20-by-30 inch sheets are available for $20.

If neither of these appeal to your geek senses, perhaps you'd prefer a selection from ThinkGeek.com instead?
