It’s that time of year again! With the holidays almost here, the quest to find that perfect gift for your geekiest loved ones may be close to reaching critical mass. The good news is there’s still time to nab some amazing items, and we’ve got your back with a killer gift guide for that special nerdy someone in your life. Whether you’re on the hunt for gadgets, games or other unusual items, this medley of deliciously geeky gifts has something for everybody.

R2D2 French Press

Why yes, this IS the coffee making droid you’ve been looking for! The gift of caffeinationis a wondrous thing, and what better way to bestow warm coffee delights unto your favorite Star Wars geek than through everybody’s favorite chirping robot? We can confirm R2D2 does indeed make an epic cup of joe.

Stranger Things Soundtrack

We still can’t get the 80s-tastic Stranger Things theme song out of our head, but the original synth-heavy score from the rest of the show is pretty amazing, too. What’s exciting is you can get the whole soundtrack in digital, CD or even slick vinyl formats, which is a perfect collector’s item for geeky audiophiles and fans of the show alike.

SNES Classic

Retro gaming is back in a big way thanks to Nintendo’s revamped mini-versions of its iconic classic consoles. This year, the SNES Classic is all the rage, and it comes pre-loaded with twenty amazing titles from the good old days of 16-bit gaming. While this can be a tough item to find in stock given its extreme popularity, it’s well worth the challenge.

Star Trek Bathrobes

Even the most hardcore Trekkies might be inclined to keep their passion for the famous sci-fi series under wraps while in public, but often it’s a totally different story at home. Wrapping up in one of these stylish bathrobes — which come in original series and The Next Generation flavors — is a solid style choice for sipping your morning coffee or enjoying a cup of hot cocoa by the fire. Make it so.


Taking care of cute digital keychain pets took the world by storm in the 90s, which makes the recent Tamagotchi revival a nostalgia-inducing exercise for people who love the idea of a furry friend but aren’t so big on the responsibility of a real living critter. Infamous for their penchant to die a lot, these adorable yet needy digital pals are a fun retro time-waster that tags along wherever you go.

Game of Thrones DragonClaw Goblet

Winter is coming, indeed, and all manner of tasty holiday libations would pair oh-so-perfectly with this sweet DragonClaw Goblet from the gritty Game of Thrones series. Whether you’re into eggnog, the blood of your enemies or something with a bit more kick, this gorgeous goblet is a most suitable vessel for satiating any thirst.

Battlestar Galactica Board Game

Tabletop gaming geeks rejoice! The intense pressure-cooker hunt to uncover Cylons in our midst is now available in boardgame form. Sci-fi geeks know all-too-well just how gripping this spacefaring series can be, and the Battlestar Galactica board game makes for an equally unforgettable experience. So saw we all!

Unicorn Meat

For those of you who love giving gag gifts, nothing says “gotcha” quite like this adorably SPAM-like can of Unicorn Meat. Unwrapping the can itself is only the first surprise this tasty treat has to offer: inside, you’ll find a stuff dismembered unicorn. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s a double-whammy of oddball laughs in a pint-sized package.

D20 Waffle Maker

The Dungeon Master in your life will no doubt shriek with glee when they open this epic D20 waffle maker — a gift that truly keeps on giving and giving and giving. Who doesn’t like rolling a natural 20 every morning for breakfast? No doubt this will be a “critical hit” among the AD&D geeks in your household.
