I love shopping for my fellow geeks. It’s so easy. Our thematic passion really simplifies finding the right gift for us. For example, as I have said before, I am a huge fan of Pusheen the Cat. So if I am gifted any pushed related items I will be as happy and content as a Pusheen that has recently eaten some pie and taken a nap. So if your valentine is a geek you are in luck! Focus on their fandoms and get something that is related. Below I have some top notch geeky gifts to get you started:
2-Player Gaming Mug Set
The last thing you want to do first thing in the morning is have your dishware cause a fight. That’s why we’re setting forth this rule right here, right now: whoever makes the coffee gets to be Player 1.
Power-up Heart Pint Glass
Each Power-Up Heart Pint Glass 4-Pack has four glasses which each have three 8-bit hearts on the side. Add cold beverages to them, and the hearts will change color to a deep red. Now your glass is powered up. As the beverage passes from the glass to your stomach (or get warm), the hearts will fade. That’s when you know it’s time to refresh your drink.
Nerdtendo Gamebooze 8oz Flask
This flask lets you relive the joys of youth, only with alcohol. The CDC points out that alcohol can impair your judgement, reduce your reaction time, and cause a loss of motor skills. Which means, basically, this flask isn’t going to make you any better at Tetris. We can live with that.
Designer Star Wars Watches
These designer watches are simply stunning and a must-have for the grown-up Star Wars fan. Each watch features a genuine leather strap, stainless steel construction, Japanese movement, and tiny details that fill our fanboy/girl hearts with joy. One such detail that proves these watches were designed by people as in love with Star Wars as us? The 5 on the face of the Luke Skywalker watch is red. (Red. Five. OMG.) The dial on the Darth Vader watch features the symbol of the Empire. Both watches are hefty and extremely well-crafted, so they’ll be sure to last as long as your love of Star Wars.
Doctor Who 11th Doctor Men’s Slippers
It’s Matt Smith’s signature tweed + bow tie look. And they look comfy, with an open back. They also have a hard, nobbledy bottom for when you have to run out to the mailbox (or travel through space and time) in your robe and slippers.
Star Wars R2-D2 Trashcan
Trash is just not that cool. Not only can it be dirty and odorous but it’s simply low-tech and boring. At least that’s what we used to think… until we saw this amazing R2-D2 Trashcan and learned to love trash. This stylish trash receptacle is imported from Japan and is an incredibly detailed replica of R2-D2. Step on R2’s center “foot” and his dome swings wide to collect your expired TPS reports and leftover wookie dung.
Pro Tech Electronics Repair Tool Kit
With almost all the information in the world readily available at our fingertips, attaining the repair advice and solutions necessary to perform tech fixes is easy. It’s the actual equipment needed to perform said repairs that becomes an issue. With the Pro Tech Electronics Repair Tool Kit, you’re household is set with tools for repairing small electronics, soft plastics, and any devices or appliances that have electrical currents.
Boba Fett Varsity Jacket
We don’t know what high school you would have to attend to get this Boba Fett varsity jacket, but we imagine their sports are a lot more dangerous than basketball and soccer. There are probably rules about bringing jetpacks to class, and the proms probably have an awkward number of Hutt crime-lords.
A380e Pocket Retro Game Emulator
The Pocket Retro Game Emulator looks a bit like the GameBoy Micro but that’s where the similarities end. Load on NES, SNES, GBA, Sega Genesis, or Neo Geo roms and play your old favorites in the palm of your hand. With 4GB of built-in storage and (a micro SD slot for expansion) you can bring every single game from the best classic consoles with you. Of course, it doesn’t stop there. You can also play movie files, audio files, FM radio. You can view images or read ebooks. You can even do Hi-Fi voice recording.
Batman Money Clip
It’s up to you to fly your Bat flag high with this super sweet Batman Money Clip. It’s a tiny batarang that folds protectively over your precious money, keeping it from flying away. Die-cast, sheathed in a ninja-like matte black rubberized coating and with a magnetized grip, this is the stealthiest and most effective batarang money clip on the face of the planet.
Stark Work Shirt
Well, hello and welcome to your first day on the job at Stark Industries. The bathrooms are over there. The kitchen is over here. Oh, and don’t bother ordering business cards. It’ll be named something different next week. But here’s your work shirt to get you started. This Stark Work Shirt features a 3 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ embroidered patch with the Stark Industries logo and a red and white embroidered, oval nametag declaring you “Tony”, ironed on and then tacked in place.
