Got a nerdy friend’s birthday coming up? Check this out!
If you’re anything like me, you probably have a fair share of nerdy friends in your life. And if you’re anything like me, you probably struggle on what to get them for gifts. Well fear no more, fellow nerd defenders! I’m here to help you sift through the world of uniquely geeky gifts.
Perhaps you have a science lover in your life who might enjoy this periodic table of elements shower curtain. This unique and high-quality shower curtain is sure to help them memorize their nonmetals and noble gases even more efficiently. Plus it doubles as a great conversation piece when company comes to visit!
Of course we all know that person who is mildly obsessed with Harry Potter (myself included). Any fan of the Wizarding World would love this cauldron soup mug as a gift.Made out of ceramic, this mug is microwave and dishwasher safe, durable, and even comes with it’s own lid and spoon! And it looks like you plucked it straight from Professor Snape’s potions class (that’ll be 10 points from Gryffindor, Potter.).
Looking for something less magic and more…..spacey? You’re in luck, with this Death Star kitchen timer that doesn’t just tell you when to take your garlic bread out of the oven, but lights up and makes sounds, too. You might find yourself setting a timer for everything just to hear and see it’s green laser! If your nerd is less a Kylo Ren and more a Rey, there’s a BB-8 kitchen timer, too.
Maybe your nerd isn’t a wizard or a jedi, but rather a demon hunter. They are sure to love the gift of thisSupernatural Funko Pop Vinyl set that features both Sam and Dean Winchester. With cartoony features and a 4-inch stature, these guys are the perfect Netflix binging companions (Salt for salt rings not included).Wait, you need something more Whovian? Check out this cozy Tardis throw and pillow set that’s sure to keep your nerd warm and comfortable for those weekend trips with the Doctor. The blanket is perfectly soft micro-raschel and comes with a Tardis theme matching pillow. Plus, it’s perfect for hiding from Daleks.
Now, I wouldn’t be doing the internet justice without mentioning our video game fandoms. Perhaps your nerd is an aspiring Dovahkiin who always needs more bag space for alchemy ingredients. If so this Skyrim messenger bag is the perfect gift idea. Featuring the Black Hand handprint and the words “We Know,” it’s a gift that’s sure to be a hit with your dragonborn. Spacious, multi-purpose, and available in a variety of colors, this canvas bag is sure to become a staple in your adventurer’s life (granted that they don’t take an arrow to the knee, of course).
Is your nerd more of the competitive gaming type? You certainly can’t go wrong with this Overwatch gaming headset. Help your nerd show off their Overwatch pride with this Razer headset that’s perfect for the multi-platform gamer who needs headphones for both a console and a PC. With oversized, soft ear cushions and a flexible body, it’s adjustable and comfortable enough to wear for those marathon gaming sessions.
Personally, I love to give the best gift I can find. For my geekiest friends, I find the most well-received, most appreciated gifts are the ones that pander to their favorite fictional universe. If you can’t tell, I belong to quite a few of these fandoms myself. So let those nerdy flags fly, my friends, and happy gifting!
