Hey, just because it's Dec. 21 doesn't mean there isn't any time left to buy a kick-ass gift for the geek in your life. Take it from our favorite tech celebrities, Veronica Belmont, Morgan Webb, Katie Linendoll, Lisa Foiles, and Marissa Mayer — buying a geek gift has never been easier. Check out their picks in these handy gift guides. Happy shopping!
Shopping season is in full swing, and while we're pumping out the gift guides for all kinds of geeks, we couldn't help but get some input from some of our favorite tech celebs. You'll recognize Morgan Webb as the sexy video game vixen from G4TV's X-Play, but she's got more than just games on the brain this year. Check out what she's lusting after this holiday season, and shop her picks for your own geeky giftees.
E3 veteran Morgan Webb knows a thing or two about gadgets and video games. She has had her finger on the pulse of the industry far before her hosting gigs at G4TV's X-Play, and G4 Underground — she was also the host of TechTV in 2001 and calls eBay's Cat Schwartz a personal friend. It's no surprise then that I turned to Morgan — who's got hosting duties during G4's week-long E3 coverage — to fill us in on her most anticipated reveals at next week's conference and get some dish on some E3 slipups of years gone by. Find out more about the girl, the games, and the title she's most excited about this year in our exclusive interview.
GeekSugar: How many years have you been attending E3?
Morgan Webb: Ooh, let's see, six or seven?
GS: Any funny or outrageous moments you can remember from past years?
MW: I feel like a lot of really funny and notorious moments usually come out of the press conferences. I'm thinking about some disastrous moments, like the first year that Sony announced the Playstation 3. They put a guy up on stage for what felt like seven hours talking about cell processors. Then there are those moments like when Nintendo announced the first Zelda for the Wii, and everyone freaked out about that because Zelda is such a beloved franchise.
Find out what game Morgan is most excited about, and how she feels about the famous "booth babes" after the break.
You can catch gamer girl Morgan Webb hosting G4TV's X-Play, or dishing out the gamer tips within the pages of guy-focused mag FHM every month (am I the only gal who reads this as well? It's packed with gadget goodness!). However, Cat Schwartz from Ebay's The Inside Source caught up with Morgan recently to chat about her secret love of ants, how she got her start on TV, and her top five can't-live-without gadgets. Find out what they are (and hear my take on her picks) in this slideshow!

On Wednesday, gamer girl and G4tv correspondent Morgan Webb was a guest on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, who was primed and ready to talk shop about games. Once Morgan got started though, the focus quickly turned to Jimmy's other late night guest, Ice T. Apparently, Ice is a major gamer, and even plays co-op Resident Evil 5 with his wife, Coco. Although Ice T seems to have an awesome sense of humor, he gets pretty serious when playing Gears of War's online multiplayer mode.
