Father’s Day (my first) is quickly approaching and people asking me for “geeky gift ideas for dad” recommendations.
Here are my top ten ideas!
Star Wars Death Star USB Wall Charger
Your father will see the power of this fully armed and operational wall charger! At just $10.99 the wall charger is the perfect gift for any Star Wars fan from daddy’s little Padawan.
Is there a more traditional Father’s Day gift than a tie? Probably not, but we’re an nontraditional site!
Turn your basic tie upside down with a black & white tie that can be colored in with your choice of markers, bringing “Casual Friday” to a whole new level! The tie itself is machine washable, but be careful washing after coloring the tie…not all markers are created equal!
The gift every Star Trek fan has been craving since they first watched Captain Kirk hook up with a hot alien female!
This officially licensed Star Trek Tricorder uses Bluetooth to pair with your cellular device, enabling daddy to simply answer calls by flipping open his tricorder and over acting just like his favorite space trekking captain. Your daddy’s very own Tricorder is also pre-loaded with 20 authentic sound effects and voice clips from the Star Trek universe, a unique stand to display the Tricorder when not in use and a hard case.
Back to the Future was an interesting father-son tale in that father and son are the same age and Marty had to help his dad with his game! Dr. Emmet Brown also played a surrogate father role, although it does seem kind of odd that the teenaged Marty was hanging out with the crazy old guy. And he did also share a kiss with his own mother and purchased the sports almanac that ultimately ended with President Biff. Maybe this wasn’t the best example, but the watch is pretty darn cool!
This officially licensed Flux Capacitor watch uniquely displays the current time and date and features a “time travel” mode. Plus, just like the DeLorean, it’s made of stainless steel! (No DeLoreans were hurt in the making of this watch, at least I don’t think so.)
Another officially licensed Star Trek product, Captain Kirk’s bean bag chair cover is the perfect place for dad to command space faring missions or watch football from on Sunday afternoons. It has faux communication controls in the arm rest so dad can contact Scotty in engineering! Ok, by “contact Scotty in engineering” I of course mean “yell for someone in the kitchen to bring him a beer”.
Heck, this unique chair is so cool, you could even watch Star Wars from it…just don’t tell any hardcore fans of either franchise about it.
Drink deep from a goblet of the House Baratheon of Dragonstone.
With a resin stem shaped like a dragon’s claws and a glass bowl, this chalice is perfect for hosting parties in your own Chamber of the Painted Table or for a quiet dinner alone pondering the fate of your kingdom.
Remind dad of the good old days with his favorite old school video game. Seven Tetris piece interlocking LED lights can be stacked and separated and automatically light up when stacked together.
It also makes for an awesome interactive night light sharing some daddy-toddler time before bed. Thankfully, the lines do not disappear when stacked as they do in the game.
Some daddies are experts in the kitchen. I am not one of them, but some are.
The Awesome Mix Vol. 2 glass cutting board has rubber feet to prevent sliding and is coated to be stain and odor resistant. Which is a great thing because who knows what kind of smells intergalactic veggies leave behind.
Star Wars Lightsaber BBQ Tongs with Sounds
Two things all guys love are grilling and making lightsaber sounds while doing whatever it is that we are doing.
These 22″ BBQ lightsaber tongs make their own authentic lightsaber sounds leaving dad free to concentrate on not burning dinner!
Slave Leia Costume
“Slave Leia” is the pinnacle of sexiness for any fan boy ever so why not let daddy fulfill his adolescent fantasy on his special day by giving this to mommy to wear? (Or I guess some daddies could wear this also, I don’t judge.)
Hey, this is supposed to be “daddy’s day” right? Well click the link for a more descriptive review of this actual costume, I try to keep this site as kid friendly as possible.
Who’s Your Daddy T-shirt
You knew this would be on the list somewhere, so let’s just get it out of the way. Arguably the most famous disgruntled family in the galaxy’s history, the Skywalker’s are also the most famous father and son duo in the galaxy’s history. And this was all before the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
This T-shirt is a great way for any Star Wars fan to display their pride in being a father and a Star Wars fan.
