Speaking of Android, if your FOSS friend is a fan -- and what open-minded person isn't? -- why not present them with this adorable Android robot doll? It's available on Etsy for $20.
Those on the open side of the fence will also no doubt appreciate the subtlety of this clever, $19 T-shirt, which depicts the Android robot taking a bite of an apple. Apple, get it? Ha. Your friend will ROTFL.
It may not be an appropriate choice for every Linux lover on your shopping list, but the new Computer Engineer Barbie is too good not to mention. You go girl, Barbie! Bang out that code! She's even wearing "a funky tee with binary code design." Pricing is $13.
Shopping almost done now? Then let's start thinking ahead to next year, when we can only hope Fossil's drool-worthy Android-connected watch will be available. Cue the sugarplums for 2011!
