When looking for a present for a self-proclaimed geek friend, take into consideration the purpose and design of the item. One of the most popular tokens or presents that you can give without sending any mixed signals is the keychain. The keychain works in the same manner as giving someone a coffee mug. The choices are varied. You can find a funny one, a cute one, an adorable one, or a character that will make the geek in him or her squeal with happiness. This usually means sci-fi keychain characters like a miniature Yoda or Luke Skywalker, a cool “long live and prosper” hand sign, or the “Bazinga” catchphrase from TBBT’s Sheldon Cooper. Keychains for geeks range from silly robots to those that have gadget command key. You can practically find every item like food, character, or quotes as a keychain. The great thing is that if you’re creative and crafty enough, you don’t need to buy keychains to give as presents. You can actually make them. A personalized or DIY keychain is actually cooler to give than those bought in shops. For one, the labor of love will be much appreciated by the recipient. Another reason is that they are more tailor-made and personalized. If for some reason you can’t find a Star Trek keychain for your geeky friend, you can simply make a face of Captain Kirk using a polymer clay. If you don’t have the skills or creativity to do this craft, you can simply print a picture of William Shatner or Chris Pine and encase the photo in a plastic keychain holder. Keychains for the geeks are not just reminiscent of great characters in movies, television, and books. They’re actually practical gifts, too. Haven’t you ever questioned why there’s always a demand for keychains? Apart from the usual ref magnets and bookmarks, keychains are possibly the most sought-after traveler’s token. They’re relatively cheap, virtually weightless, and practical to use. The online world is also teeming with stores that market different kinds of keychains – from the silliest ones to the most provocative, from the funniest ones to the most intricately-designed, from the geeky ones to the most delicately-made. In fact, if you don’t watch yourself, you will be bombarded with hundreds of choices that the selection process becomes a daunting task. To help you find inspiration for keychain designs for your geeky self or friends, here are 25 of the coolest keychain accessories for geeks. Feel free to shop one or all!

40 Creative Skateboard Deck Designs

If you’re a huge fan of art, you would probably be found roaming the halls of museums and galleries not only locally, but in cities you travel to as well. You look for inspiration in a lot of things you encounter out in the world, and find solace in the wonderful mix of colors and lines to create the most breathtaking images possible. You believe in the way these creations inspire, and use them to bring more color to the way you live your life. However, this does not even begin to explain how much art there is out in the world, because sometimes, real art cannot be found in frames on walls and within quiet halls. Sometimes, real art is found out in the streets, where the pace is fast and the noise is deafening. Sometimes, real art can be found right under those skateboard decks that your teenaged neighbor owns. A Different Form of Art Yes, skateboard decks have become a popular medium for more extreme artists to place their work on. And to a lot of people’s surprise, these decks do not necessarily carry angst-ridden teen art all the time. The art found on skateboard decks have actually evolved through time, with the designs becoming more mature and meaningful. There’s a lot of color, but not all the time. Some decks use elaborate design elements that could actually fit right into a sophisticated art gallery. Some stay within the confines of trendy pop culture, but with a more refined approach used. Some may still carry some content that other people may find offensive, but hey, art actually is an honest expression of one’s beliefs, right? So that’s exactly what this medium does for this rare breed of artists. As you look at these designs, you will also notice a very keen attention to detail, with a lot of the images created opening up your imagination as to just how much sweat was poured out to bring the concepts to life. And yet, some also prefer a minimalist approach, with clean lines and neutral colors that intend to soothe. No matter how widely different each design could be from the others, the high degree of seriousness by which every skateboard deck artist applies to their work is evident every step of the way. Amazingly Creative Skateboard Deck Designs Brace yourself for some of the most surprising displays of sheer artistic talent. Here are some of the most creative skateboard deck designs you will ever see: “Girl with glasses” skateboard decks made by Rami Niemi for Seven Inch Skateboards Dog Skull skateboard deck by Chad Woodward from Red Central “Joe Goemann Wasted” skateboard deck by Ben Horton for Slave “Go run soul” skateboard deck by Ames Collective Chocolate Evan Hecox graphics Paiting skateboard deck by Yutta Valter Ashby’s No. 7 skateboard deck by Matthew Paris “Quote” skateboard deck by Timminess “Vader Inlay” skate deck by Santa Cruz skateboard SOVRN Skateboard Deck Plywood for Good by Timothy Goodman Hand-painted Band-aid skateboard Batman Logo Skateboard Deck by Mike Alcantara VHS Heroes by Hollis Brown Thornton Skateboard deck by Camiloparrarodriguez Skateboard deck by Akiiira13 Skateboard deck by Zero, shoot by Djmikerock Skateboard & surfboard by Lucasandsons Space Cadet skateboard deck by Cogwurx 4 Skateboard Co by Kendrick Kidd Skateboard decks by globebrand Turntable Deck by Ink   Skateboards by Chaotic Moon Studios GUTS Skateboard Deck Painting by Robby Davis Wood by Sam Dunn   The Girl Skate Co. by Scott Biersack Nursery Rhyme skateboard deck designed by Katie Tully   Breaking Board skateboard deck designed by Dusan Cezek “Ride On” Deck by Brett Stenson Decks by Mackey Saturday Who Dares Wins deck by Wells Seal of Approval skateboard deck made by Hype   Barnes tattooed skateboard deck made by Digital Oatmeal for FYPB Skate Co.
