The Perseids (mainly because I don't have to go out and almost freeze to death as is required to watch the Geminids). The Delta Aquarids also overlap the Perseids to some degree, so you get a few more non-Perseids thrown in for good measure. Clear skies to you.

The Geminids are more impressive because you can see more of them - nights are a lot longer in December. A somewhat experienced meteor observer can see 1000 Geminids in a single night.
