    Let's get nerdy.

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. This screaming goat for the person who considers themselves a bit of a memelord and is always spamming the group chat with new annoying memes. It also makes a great gag gift, if you and your partner aren't really into the whole Valentine's Day thing.

    Amazon / Via

    Each screaming Bovidae comes with a 32-page illustrated booklet of facts and trivia about these weird creatures.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $12.38.

    2. A sexy Geralt figurine that recreates that iconic scene from The Witcher. All that's missing is Henry Cavill's toned booty.

    Amazon / Via

    The hand-painted resin figurine is the next best thing to watching (and re-watching) the scene that sparked a thousand memes.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $84.14.

    3. 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!

    Amazon / Via

    These can also be tossed in the dishwasher if someone DOES spill something on them. Just be sure to advise the gift recipient to put them in the top rack, since silicone can distort in hot water.

    Get a set of four coasters on Amazon Canada for $16.99+ (available in five different packs).

    4. 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, whether they still wax nostalgic over the release of A New Hope, if they're geeking out over The Mandalorian (baby Yoda IS pretty adorable).

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers really like the premium quality. Since they're hand-painted, I wouldn't recommend putting them in the dishwasher, but then again, how often does one wash salt and pepper shakers?

    Get the set on Amazon Canada for $19.99+ (available in ten designs).

    5. This set of Game of Thrones wine glasses that'll inspire them to drink and know things. Don't let them be like Jon Snow, who, as we all know, knows nothing.

    Amazon / Via

    The gold foil letters may make them feel like a king on the Iron Throne, but it's probably not a good idea to put these glasses in the microwave or the dishwasher. They'll just have to wash these by hand!

    Get a pair on Amazon Canada for $24.99 (available in two styles).

    6. This Witcher polyurethane wallet that's embossed with the show's iconic wolf motif. It might not be as rustic as Jaskier's coin purse, but who carries coins around nowadays, anyway?

    Amazon / Via

    It's officially licensed merch, too! And it'll hold up to five credit cards.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39.99.

    7. This nostalgia T-shirt that's a funny way to poke fun at how far technology has come. It'll 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!

    Amazon / Via

    The tee is made of pre-shrunk cotton, so unlike tech from the past, it'll stick around — UNCHANGED — for years.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $10.30+ (available in six colours and in sizes S-XXL).

    8. This handmade "Tree of Gondor" tobacco pipe is sure to be a smoking hot gift for any Lord of the Rings fans. They'll be able to smoke the last of the Longbottom leaf after a successful siege of Isengard.

    Amazon / Via

    The particularly good salted pork is not included. It's made of pear wood and solid ebonite and finished with a high-gloss coating so it'll last forever.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $38.

    9. This Star Trek Starfleet insignia silicone mould will help take their 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.

    Amazon / Via

    This tray can also ~boldly go~ in the dishwasher once it has served its purpose.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $13.99.

    10. A replica of Frodo's sword, Sting, from Lord of the Rings. It might not glow bright blue when orcs are around, but it'll definitely look awesome as part of a collection.

    Amazon / Via

    It even has Elvish engravings on both sides of the blade, and comes with a brown leather scabbard. Be warned, though: it's not a toy! I wouldn't recommend giving this to children.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $108.

    11. The Silmarillion, the collaborative prologue to Lord of the Rings that Tolkien worked on with his son. The story delves deeper into the history of Middle Earth, and will satisfy any burning questions LOTR fans may have had after reading (or watching) Tolkien's seminal works.

    Amazon / Via

    Get the Kindle edition on Amazon Canada for $9.89+ (available in four formats).

    Get them on Amazon Canada for $19.97.

    14. The Game of Thrones version of Settlers of Catan that pits players against each other as they vie for the coveted position of Lord Commander. And they won't even have to take the black to battle wildlings, White Walkers, and giants!

    Amazon / Via

    It still has all the elements of classic Catan, too, so anyone who's familiar with the original will have a blast with this version!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $67.42.

    15. This Super Mario Bros. mini question block night light that'll level up their decor. Just like the question block in the iconic game, this light is touch-operated — they'll just have to give it a bop to turn it on and off!

    Amazon / Via

    It's dual powered, too, so it'll keep on shinin' even in a power outage.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.99.

    16. This LEGO-inspired coffee cup that'll prevent their mug from being stolen at the office (AGAIN). Each one comes with two packs of bricks that'll let them customize the vibe of their beverage. It's also awesome for anyone who gets a little ~tWiTChy~ after too much caffeine.

    Amazon / Via

    The food-grade plastic can withstand temperatures of up to 100° Celsius, but still shouldn't be used in the microwave or dishwasher.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.95 (available in four colours).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $9.96.

    18. Vader's Little Princess, the illustrated story of Vader raising his rebellious daughter Leia, that'll be a hilarious addition to their bookshelf — not to mention a great way to get little ones into the Star Wars series!

    Start 'em young!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $18.40.

    19. A gold-plated One Ring wedding band will let them know that you only need one love to rule them all. It won't turn anyone invisible, but it IS cobalt-free, hypoallergenic, and made of lightweight titanium.

    Amazon / Via

    Plus it's a great ode to a classic story — maybe even the story that brought you two together in the first place! Maybe you were an Elf from Rivendell, hanging out by the punch bowl, and he was a dashing Ranger from the North. Maybe you two lit a few beacons *wink wink nudge nudge* later that night. Or maybe it's just their favourite movie.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $20.99+ (available in sizes 4-13.5).

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $24.99.

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

    25. That's no 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' iconic work, but this clock is still a great collectible item to add to any collection.

    Amazon / Via
