Buying gifts can be such a task when you’re looking for someone who seemingly has it all, or who simply doesn’t have any specific wishes. What do you give someone who has no idea what they want? A good tip is to base your gift on one of their favorite pastimes and hobbies. If you have people who are more into their tech and popular culture, have a read to see our top tips for geeky gift ideas.
Geek Cooking Gear
Do you have someone who likes cooking or baking, but already has all cookbooks they like? Combine two of their favorite things and find them a novelty item that allows them to make themed dishes, like Captain America waffles, or spruce up their kitchen. How does a Storm Trooper whiskey decanter sound? Or what about a Super Mario cookie jar? Combine the best of both worlds and give them something that will bring a smile to their face on a daily basis.
Geek Scale Models
Nowadays, there is a host of different merchandise that you can buy around different movies and franchises. Online shops like ModelSpace have scale-models available on a whole range of different movies, from Star Wars to James Bond, or even Fast & Furious! If you have someone who is absolutely passionate about R2-D2, Bond’s famous Jag, or the Fast & Furious Dodger, ModelSpace have you covered. Give the gift of a lifetime and ensure they have their very own Millennium Falcon!
Themed Shirts & More
Alternatively, look for pop culture tees and other gifts if you have a smaller budget. Get them a new favorite mug or punny t-shirt of a loved character. With so many options on the market, you are guaranteed to find something that the birthday boy or girl is going to love. If you’re shopping for the holidays, then you could even try to track down a novelty Christmas sweater for them to wear. From Jurassic Park to Harry Potter to Deadpool, you’re absolutely spoilt for choice. If you’re buying for a couple with a baby on the way, then don’t forget that themed baby onesies are a thing!
Pop Culture-Inspired Games
If you’re looking for a gift that will guarantee a fun night with friends, then browse around for a game that is inspired by their favorite movie or series. Cards Against Humanity have a wide range of different expansion packs, from video games to sci-fi ones. Many shows and franchises are now also coming out with their own board games, including The Walking Dead, the MCU and many more. If you’re buying for someone who likes the occasional game and is absolutely passionate about a specific movie or series, then you’re sure to find something to their liking.
