Best gifts for comic book nerds
Does the nerd in your life have a specific interest in comic books and superheroes? Or maybe they’re a Marvel movie fan and they’re only just starting to delve into the comic books that these films are based on. Regardless, they’re sure to love a subscription to Marvel Unlimited, which will give them online access to thousands of comic books featuring all their favorite characters!
If you’re loving the idea of a geeky subscription box gift but want more ideas, consider Loot Crate, or set them up with a Disney+ Subscription so they can tune in to all their favorite Marvel and Star Wars content.
Best fantasy role-playing gift ideas
Being a Dungeon master is no joke; it takes hours upon hours of planning, reading, mapping, and writing to create amazing campaigns for a Dungeons and Dragons group. If your loved one has taken on the role of DM, help them make an impression with a beautiful handmade DM screen to keep their campaign spoiler-free!
Gifts for geeks and movie lovers
If your geeky loved one is a huge fan of superhero movies, or other sci-fi and fantasy adventures, then they’d love to own a piece of their favorite franchise; and what better prop to start off their collection than Captain America’s shield? It’s sure to have a pride of place in any Marvel Fan’s gaming room, home theater or bedroom!
Fascinating tech gift for geeks and nerds
If you have someone in your life who’s a little nerdy for tech and gadgets, embrace their curiosity and get them a remote-controlled drone, complete with a camera, so they can take beautiful drone footage! It’s a fun gift idea for nerds of all ages looking for a new hobby!
Drones are fun and all, but have you ever thought of taking it back to the basics – with a twist? Consider giving your nerdy loved one a “smart” paper airplane kit as a fun gift idea!
Fun family gift for geeky families
The family that games together, stays together, and what better way to spice up family game night than with a choose-your-own-path adventure-style board game? With so many paths to choose, no game will ever be exactly the same, and players of all ages will have a blast discovering a new adventure every time!
Best gift for geeky collectors
It’s one thing to watch your favorite shows and play your favorite games, but you know someone is a fan when they have a memorabilia collection! Whether they’re into anime, comic books, films, video games, or book characters, you’re sure to get a great reaction when they unbox a collectible figurine of their favorite character!
Unique gifts for video game lovers
Video games are an amazing escape from the real world, but stepping into a game completely? Now that’s on another level! No need for expensive virtual reality software; this VR headset connects to any Apple or Android phone! It’s an excellent idea for the gamer in your life, and it will also be a huge hit at the next family gathering or party!
Nerdy STEM gift for all ages
If your nerdy loved one is into building things and watching how things work, then a kinetic building kit could be the perfect gift for them! Not only will they have the chance to build a device with their own hands, they can learn what makes it “tick”, so to speak. It’s a great activity that’s sure to capture their imagination for hours!
Stylish gift for geeky girls
Everyone loves to show off their personality, style, and interests in their jewelry, so why not get your favorite geek some fun earrings that remind them of a nostalgic game like Super Mario? Pick a bright and colorful pair to compliment their fun and energetic personality!
Books that geeks and nerds will love
Every geek loves learning about where their favorite media came from, and is there any better source than a book detailing the art of their favorite film, game, or franchise? The Art of Drew Struzan is a great place to start; he’s the artist behind some of your favorite film posters over the past 40 years!
Great gift idea for film and TV nerds
There’s something about the woosh of a lightsaber when it ignites that brings out the adventure in everyone! If you’ve got a huge Star Wars fan in your life, they’ll love a set of their very own duel-worthy lightsabers! With lights and sound effects, it’s like bringing the movies to life. But don’t be surprised when they challenge you to a battle!
