    31 Gloriously Geeky Gifts For The Biggest Nerd You Know

    ♫ Deck the halls with fandom merch, falalalalalalalala ♫

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

    2. A real-life invisibility cloak (!!!) that comes with a code for an app that'll allow them to use the cloak like a green screen to take Muggle-world-defying pics and videos. The least they could do to thank you would be to sneak into the Restricted Section and find some scoop on Nicolas Flamel for you.

    3. 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.

    4. A Bob's Burgers wall calendar so they can ring in 2020 with their faithful friends the Belchers.

    5. 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.

    6. And a set of appropriately fandom-themed wooden cooking utensils they can use to make cooking even more fun.

    7. 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.

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

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

    11. A Harry Potter origami book for the friend who's searching for a magical new hobby (or who just needs something to do with their hands other than munch Bertie Botts during their next HP movie marathon).

    12. A gorgeous set of three Aladdin makeup bags that'll make it easy for them to pack for their journey to a whole new world.

    13. A truly terrifying Pennywise mug with a creepy-yet-convenient balloon spoon that's sure to ~float~ any horror geek's paper boat.

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

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

    16. A badass Wonder Woman tiara necklace to make them feel powerful every dang day.

    17. 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.

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

    19. LOL-worthy Superman socks complete with a cape that'll have them saying "It's a bird, it's a plane,'s novelty footwear!"

    20. A Nightmare Before Christmas wreath that they'd actually consider to be a ~dream~ to hang up before Christmas.

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

    22. A Triforce lamp for a gamer gift that totally Hy-rules.

    23. Pun-tastic Hamilton or Gilmore Girls colored pencils guaranteed to ~brighten~ every fan's day.

    24. A cool Captain America backpack with plenty of pockets plus a laptop sleeve sure to become the new hero of your commute.

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

    26. A squee-worthy set of 10 Eeveelution enamel pins (including a *sparkly* Sylveon) so your fave Pokémon trainer really can catch 'em all.

    27. A cute mug sure to make them say, "You know me so well!"

    28. Absolutely adorable slippers that just might be the Miyaza-key to keeping their ~toe~-toros warm this winter.

    29. An "Inconspicuous fanfiction notebook" so your favorite author can jot down their ideas for new situations in which Archie and Jughead ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO share a bed.

    30. 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.

    31. A Stark Industries baseball cap for anyone whose love for Tony is ~endgame~.
