    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post was last updated in 2018, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. Check out the 2019 version of this post for our most up-to-date geeky gift recommendations!

    1. Harry Potter wand makeup brushes if their idea of a dream store would be a hybrid of Ollivander's and Sephora.

    2. A dancing Groot bobblehead who'll guard their desk or dashboard just like he guards the galaxy.

    3. A Hawkins Middle School A.V. Club sweatshirt to comfort your friend who feels like their world will be turned upside down once Stranger Things ends.

    4. Or a Southside Serpents moto jacket if their allegiance is to a different fictional school.

    5. The Art of Disney: The Golden Age (1937-1961) card book, a collection of 100 gorgeous postcards with artwork from different stages of the animation process of classic Disney films. It's basically a history of Disney in a box, so prepare for geeky gushing.

    6. A geeky enamel pin or two or three (or more), because it's an empirical fact that there's nothing geeks love more than decorating their bags and con lanyards with flair.

    7. Aww-worthy socks paying homage to Dobby that'll set any Harry Potter fan free and then make them cry.

    8. A Super Mario-themed chess set that comes with a bright board and super-detailed figurines, but unfortunately not with a flagpole onto which you can jump when you emerge victorious.

    9. A LOL-worthy set of dry-erase magnets so they can make their fridge look like their beloved gaming console of yesteryear.

    10. A Supernatural-themed edition of Clue even the Winchester brothers themselves would approve of.

    11. A Bob's Burgers wall calendar so they can ring in 2019 with their faithful friends the Belchers.

    12. Squee-worthy Pickachu soap sure to be their best friend when it's their hygiene they must defend.

    13. Or a bar of D20 gaming dice soap to keep your favorite Dungeon Master squeaky clean.

    14. A Fair Isle Totoro sweater that just might be the Miyaza-key to becoming the best gift giver ever.

    15. The Geeky Chef Cookbook: Real-Life Recipes for Your Favorite Fantasy Foods for anyone who has ever wanted to try Romulan ale or pumpkin pasties IRL, or who needs motivation to step away from their books and games and actually cook for once.

    16. A Black Panther-inspired necklace which may not be made of genuine Vibranium, but will help ensure they never freeze.

    17. An uproariously funny bottle of "You Smell Nothing, Jon Snow," toilet spray they can use when they feel that a rather odiferous bowel movement, not just winter, is coming.

    18. A Funko Pop! figure from the new Fantastic Beasts movie to say thank you to that friend who was kind enough not to spoil the movie even though they saw it a day before you.

    19. Or a DIY Funko Pop! you can customize to look like your friend, you and your S.O., or even your loved one's fave obscure character that Funko hasn't gotten around to making yet (sigh). Because the only thing missing from their copious Pop! collection is probably their own face.

    20. A sleek purse for anyone who is Loki obsessed with Marvel.

    21. A Sherlock typography print featuring the iconic detective and printed with quotes from the show to prove you've got this geeky gift-giving thing on (Sher)lock.

    22. A set of pencils emblazoned with iconic quotes from a galaxy far, far away so that everything they jot down will be written in the stars, and the Star Wars.

    23. A set of Yuri!!! On Ice BFF necklaces to share with the sexiest pork cutlet bowl you know.

    24. A Tardis throw blanket any aspiring Time Lord (be they two- or four-legged) will wanna curl up with.

    25. A gorgeous dragon-emblazoned mug any LOTR or GOT fan, or any other geek whose fandom can't be represented by one of the aforementioned acronyms, will love.

    26. A VHS case-inspired clutch featuring a fave Disney movie that's sure to hit any '90s kid right in the childhood.

    27. A step-by-step manga drawing book that features everything from basic tutorials to intensive step-by-step projects that are sure to help your favorite budding fan artist get a heck of a lot more reblogs, and maybe even create manga of their own.

    28. A chic mini backpack that'll stand in Stark contrast to all the other significantly more boring gifts they'll get this year.

    29. A totally badass Wonder Woman cuff bracelet that'll have them feeling like as much of a boss as the princess of Themyscira.

    30. And a Triforce lamp for a gamer gift that totally Hy-rules.

    Me when anyone gives me a gift not related to one of my fandoms tbh:
