Top Affordable Holiday Gift Ideas For The Geek In Your Life (That They Will Actually Use).

People think shopping for a ‘Geek‘ is pretty easy. Just grab anything that says ‘Star Wars‘ or ‘Marvel Comics‘ on it and you are all done and can go back to your Hallmark Christmas Movie Marathon.

I blame the popularity of the sit-com Big Bang Theory for this misconception.

However most of the Geeky themed gift ideas that could be considered “cute” are also the gifts that never get opened and later find themselves thrown into a donation/re-gift pile.

This year, how about getting that special geek in your life an affordable gift they will actually enjoy and get some use out of!

Here are some of Geeky Daddy’s Best of Amazon Suggestions :

Some people love him. Some people despise hm. But we can all agree on at least one thing about the 45th POTUS: He was some funky hair.
