    Just 28 Geeky Gifts For All The Nerds In Your Life

    Nerd is the word.

    Hey! While we’re doing our best to make sure the products we feature will arrive in time for Christmas, shipping times can vary depending on where you live, which product you purchase, and more. Be sure to double check the retailers’ websites for shipping information to ensure that your gift will arrive in time for the 25th!

    1. These blank floppy disc coasters are a great gift to give anyone who wishes we could go back to simpler times. Unlike real floppy discs, these are made of flexible silicone. They might not be able to save a document, but they can save someone's precious coffee table!

    2. This Star Trek communicator badge is almost as useful as the real thing. It plays the iconic Star Trek ComBadge chirp when pressed, making it an ideal accessory for cosplay, but that's not all — it's also Bluetooth-enabled, which means they can use it as an actual communicator!

    3. These Lego storage bricks are perfect for anyone who still keeps their old Lego sets under their bed, or who takes just as much pleasure building them as their kids do. They're also wonderful for ACTUAL children, as they are stackable (like the original Lego brick!), and can store many toys in their hollow interior.

    4. A set of these Avengers cufflinks that will be perfect for any dapper dork in your life who has a particular penchant for comic book heroes.

    5. A selection of these guitar picks is sure to please any would-be Hendrix. There are 51 picks per pouch, each individually designed and totally unique. The coolest part is the variety — 25 picks are made of celluloid, and the other 25 are made of Tortex. A single stainless steel pick rounds out the set, making this the ultimate pick for the guitar or bass player in your life.

    6. A three-dimensional "geek" mug. It might be a bit on the nose, but c'mon! It's perfect, ironically cool, and hilarious.

    7. This PlayStation Icons light display is the ideal gift for any fans of the hugely popular gaming system. They're also music-reactive, making them the perfect game night accessory!

    8. This nostalgia T-shirt is a funny way to poke fun at how far technology has come, and to remind the geek in your life of the good old days of VHS tapes, cassettes, and floppy discs. Nothing sounded more like Friday night in the '90s than rewinding a VHS rental from Blockbuster!

    9. This Star Trek Starfleet insignia silicone mould will help take your gift recipient's cooking game to the ~final frontier~. They can use it to make cool ice cubes, for funky Jello-O shots, or for making candy or chocolate. The possibilities are as endless as deep space.

    10. These hand-painted Star Wars salt and pepper shakers are not only an awesome collector's item, but they'll actually come in handy, too! Gift them to the Star Wars fan in your life who remembers when A New Hope was released — or reserve them for those who are geeking out over The Mandalorian coming out on Disney+ (tiny Yoda IS pretty adorable).

    11. This dopamine molecule necklace will let that special someone know just how ~happy~ they make you. It's made of sterling silver, and several reviewers on have mentioned its magical, tarnish-resisting powers.

    12. The NSFW edition of Exploding Kittens for the (adult) gamer in your life who has a particular affinity for explosions, kittens, and occasional boob wizards. It's the most-backed project in Kickstarter history, so you know you're going to ~blow~ someone's mind by slipping this under the tree.

    13. This Pac-Man Connect and Play-12 set is a great gift for anyone who wants to relive the glory days of video games. Using the included cables, they'll be able to plug the controller directly into their T.V. and enjoy 12 classic games, including (obviously) the original Pac-Man.

    14. A vinyl-bound boxed set of J.R.R Tolkien's classics that'll thrill any Tolkien fan, AND will make a stylish addition to their bookshelf. Just prepare to hear "It was different in the books!" a lot the next time you have a LOTR movie marathon!

    15. This Star Trek Enterprise pizza cutter will help your gift receiver slice up a hot pie faster than they can say, "These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise." It's made of solid, laser-etched stainless steel, too, so you know you're gifting a collectible they can actually use (and not just look at on their shelf).

    16. This Razer DeathAdder Elite Esports gaming mouse is lightning fast, incredibly responsive, and accurate to within 99.4% resolution accuracy. If you don't know what that means, don't worry! It's basically the Ferrari of Esports gaming equipment. If you're thinking of what to buy your Esports-obsessed friend, niece, nephew, child, or partner, you can stop looking — this is it.

    17. If my calculations are correct, this Back to the Future vanity plate is a fun novelty item to give to anyone who has a particular penchant for '80s nerdy sci-fi movies.

    18. These brain slice coasters are an incredibly cool (albeit a bit gross) gift for nerdy host or hostess on your gift list. The set of 10 coasters is made of glass so the brain slices are clearly visible, and with little rubber feet underneath, they won't scratch up any coffee tables.

    19. Code Names Pictures Edition will make a welcome addition to any board game aficionado's collection, especially if they already have the original! It's a picture game that combines logic, reasoning, and espionage, as you and your team work to reveal the opposing team's undercover agents.

    20. This TACOsaurus Rex is the best choice for giving the dino enthusiast who also happens to love a good taco. Don't fret, though. This T. Rex also holds toast, sandwiches, waffles, or just about anything they'd want to devour in style.

    21. These microfibre Rick and Morty bedsheets aren't a portal gun, but they'll transport your geeky friend to dreamland faster than they can say, "Wubba-lubba-dub-dub!" They'll have everyone begging for them to show me what you got!

    22. Cozmo the coding robot is a great beginner-level gift for the aspiring tech wizard in your life. He can be programmed to do just about anything, including dance, sneeze, or play a game! The visual programming language makes learning to code fun and easy.

    23. These Harry Potter-themed necklaces will definitely make any would-be witch or wizard smile at the sight of them. Harkening back to the adventures of our favourite magical trio, this set is great to gift as a whole, split them up and give to a group of friends, or even keep one (or two) for yourself!

    24. These blue-light blocking glasses might not be the hottest tech, but they'll be a blessing in disguise for anyone in your life who spends hours looking at a screen (aka everyone). Realistically, you'd be giving TWO gifts in one: a pair of really stylish, useful glasses, and better eye health in the future. We love a multi-tasking present!

    25. That's not a moon, it's a Death Star vinyl wall clock that'll make a handsome addition to the decor of any cinephile. Maybe they love movie memorabilia, or maybe they're just a fan of George Lucas' seminal work, but this clock is still a great collectible item to add to any collection.

    26. This National Geographic Geodes Discovery set contains all the most fun elements of science: unexpected discoveries and smashing stuff! It'll make a great gift for the budding geologist.

    27. A Doctor Who TARDIS mug that doesn't time travel, but does the next best thing: it keeps your drink warm, duh. It's a cute and unexpected addition to any Whovian's kitchen. It even has a removable lid that can be popped one to ensure their tea (or coffee) stays hot for longer.

    28. And last, but definitely not least, this Supernatural hoodie, quoting the iconic song that plays during the "previously" segments. The longest-running sci-fi show on television has plenty of viewers, and this would satisfy even the most die-hard fan.

    Nerds of the world, unite!
