The holidays are upon us and it’s time to find the right gift ideas for that special Geek in your life.
This year, the Geeky team is going to breakdown our gift ideas into three separate lists: For Geeky Him, For Geeky Her and For Junior Geek.
Here are Geeky Daddy’s Top Ten Holiday Gift Ideas For Him.
10. Die Hard Christmas Sweater
I think we can all agree that it’s not really Christmas until we see Hans Gruber falling out of the 30th floor window of Nakatomi Plaza.
Well now you can dress the part, well at least the part of Karl’s brother Tony, who was the first of Hans crew to be offed by our hero John McClane in Die Hard.
This officially licensed sweater by Funny Threads Outlets is available on Amazon.com and is the best way to communicate to the entire ugly Christmas Sweater Party what you think the best Christmas movie of all time is!
9. Nixon Star Wars Inspired Watches
Whether you are a member of the Imperial Army or a “part of a rebel alliance and a traitor,” you still need to be at grandma’s on time for dinner. Enter your new best friends, Nixon’s line of Star Wars inspired time pieces!
All made of high quality stainless steel parts and with Star Wars inspired designs, these watches make awesome gifts for the Star Wars fan!
All designs are available on Amazon.com!
8. Doctor Who Socks
Like it or not, there’s a good chance of receiving hosiery as a gift for the holidays. And while Grayson would love socks as a present because they’re so fun to throw, chew on, and more, all you can do is hope that the socks you receive are a socking stuffer and not the main entree of your gifts.
The popularity of Doctor Who seems to be at an all time high, based upon the amount of police call boxes I see at conventions. So let’s pay homage to the phone booth with these officially licensed socks!
7. Star Trek TNG Bluetooth® ComBadge
This is a must have for any true fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation!
This ThinkGeek exclusive hooks up to your phone or device via Bluetooth® and has a built-in microphone for hands-free calling. Once connected, one touch answers/ends calls, plays/pauses audio, or accesses Siri, Google Now, or Cortana. And, of course, a touch plays that classic communicator sound effect.
I would end every call with “Geeky Daddy out.”
6. Super Mario Wall Mount Lamp
This custom lamp made of maple plywood and colored translucent acrylic is an awesome way to light up the gaming room of any vintage gamer!
Available on Amazon, this game room essential ships fully assembled to the U.S. and Canada.
The only thing that could make this lamp any cooler would be a push button on the bottom of the block that you could jump up to punch on and off!
5.Portable BBQ Grill Briefcase
Picture this: James Bond approaches Q and needs to be outfitted with kit to blend into a tailgate. Q says “I have just the thing for you 007, but bring it back in one piece this time!”
The Portable Briefcase Grill may look like a briefcase on the outside, but on the inside it holds all the right tools to grill you up a delicious meal. Open this little wonder to reveal a cooking grate and ash-catcher. With enough space to cook a meal for two, it will grill up just the right amount of food at the tailgate for Bond and the bad guy’s girlfriend (that Bond is probably going to nail 10 minutes after meeting).
Ok, so maybe it’s not for a State University binge-drinking type tailgate. Probably more of a corporate BBQ “hey, hit me up on LinkedIn so we can discuss the potential merger” type tailgate, but you get the idea.
4. Tetris Stackable LED Desk Lamp
While we do see Russia’s name negatively in the news a lot lately, it is important to remember that Mother Russia is also responsible for some of the 20th centuries greatest inventions! Such as the helicopter, synthetic rubber, television and, of course, Tetris!
These cool LED Tetris blocks light up automatically when stacked together and turn off when separated.
And best of all, when you make a row of all the same color, they don’t disintegrate like they do in the actual game! Unfortunately, the blocks do not play the awesome soundtrack from the game.
3. Transformer USB Drive
My favorite Transformer growing up was Soundwave! He was smart, loyal, had a cool voice and was incredibly useful on the battlefield thanks to the added punch of his cassette disciples such as Ravage.
Now you can control your own Ravage with this amazingly detailed Ravage USB drive. Available in true 16 GB or 32 GB, this USB is the perfect way for any Transformers fan to back up off the cloud.
2. Star Trek: TNG Uniform Hoodie
This Star Trek: The Next Generation hoodie from ThinkGeek is an essential for any Trekkie living in a cold weather environment! Not only do these full zip hoodies (with pockets) have screen-accurate colors and embroidered combadges – they have actual raised collars and rank pins!
The rank pins are extremely important if you plan on wearing the red hoodie on away missions! There is a huge difference between being the captain and the expendable!
1. CLUE: Game of Thrones Board Game
Now you can have friends over for game night and try to solve who killed your favorite Game Of Thrones character on the board game while watching the same characters getting offed on TV.
12 treasonous scheming suspects, 6 metal weapons and a double sided board (confines of the Red Keep or the streets of Meereen) are just some of the components of this modern take of the classic CLUE board game. Drink, know things and solve a murder all at the same time!
Tell us what gifts you like, don’t like or have gotten that you love!
