We’re in the home stretch of the holidays! With Hanukkah nearly done and Christmas just around the corner, I know you’re keeping an eye out for something special. I know I’ve been shopping for white elephant office parties and gifts for colleagues. This list was really hard to narrow down as there is so much amazing nerdy merchandise on the market! For those who haven’t yet picked up a special gift for friends or family, here’s our geeky gift guide! Prices are current as of post date, after that, they may change.
1. Star Wars Princess Leia Cape Jacket – $47.12
Her Universe has LOADS of awesome Star Wars apparel so it was really hard to pick just one item. However, Princess Leia is legendary so we had to pick this wonderful, beautiful cape jacket piece. This white jacket is the perfect addition to your wardrobe! “Based off of her white gown at the end A New Hope, this white jacket features a zip front with a hematite Rebellion zipper pull, and becomes a cape when your arms are raised or lifted.” Definitely check out our Her Universe giveaway as well!
Who wasn’t watching Westworld this year!?! Check out this exclusive Westworld Pop! Television Dolores New York Comic Con Exclusive. This 3.75 inch Vinyl figure is the perfect addition to your Funko collection. It’s in limited quantities, only while supplies last so hurry!
3. Game of Thrones Risk – $74.99
Inspired by the hit HBO series and the classic game of Risk comes the Game of Thrones Risk board game. “Like Risk, rally your troops, lead them across the globe, and rule the world. You’ll need to carefully plan your strategy and face your opponents on the battle field. The game features two ways to play, including factions of noble Houses vying for control of Westeros during the time of The War of the Five Kings and Daenerys Targaryen’s rise to power in Essos.” Our founder, Michelle Jensen, owns this game already and loves it! It’s a perfect geeky gift for your boardgames buddies!
4. Star Trek: TNG Uniform Hoodie – $60.99
A Star Trek: The Next Generation Uniform Hoodie is the perfect gift for a geek guy friend.
“Our partners at Mighty Fine took these hoodies to the next level. Not only do they have screen-accurate colors and embroidered combadges – they have actual raised collars AND rank pips! So you can say, “Call me Lieutenant Commander,” when you wear it. Or even, “I prefer Captain.”
This geeky gift guide would be remiss without at least one video game themed gift! “Cram all your books into this backpack modeled after the Traveler’s Shield from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to protect them. It has a padded back and straps (to protect you), and a double zippered closure so you can get to your stuff quick. Because we’ve heard it’s dangerous to go alone.
As an added bonus you can’t get in game, its bright blue features a print of the Sheikah’s Eye Symbol and a padded laptop/tablet sleeve. It’s best suited to helping you carry stuff, not so much defending against weak monsters or animals. Oh, and don’t actually use it for shield surfing.”
A Riverdale T-shirt that reminds everyone who which side of town you’re from. The Southside Serpents are the best gang in town, but with this Southside logo T-shirt (and hopefully Jughead, Toni, and Sweet Pea) by your side, you’ll be okay. It’s an excellent gift for any Riverdale fan!
7. Doctor Who Plaid Flyaway Cardigan – $43.92
Patiently await the new Doctor in this comfy and adorable cardigan! This flyaway cardigan from Doctor Who is the perfect gift for any Whovian. The beige and navy plaid cardigan has a discreet “Police Public Call Box” text design knit into the plaid pattern.
8. Marvel Classic Captain America Shield Backpack – $59.99
On your back, it looks just like Steve Rogers’s shield, straps and all. A hard plastic shield will protect your valuables. Inside, a large main pocket, two accessory pockets, and a padded laptop/tablet pocket. And to make sure your Captain America Shield Backpack is comfy on your back for long missions, they’ve made it all nice and padded. But even the padding has been geeked out a bit, as it looks just like Captain America’s uniform front!
9. The Book of Barb – $14.99
Stranger Things is wonderful at celebrating the 80s in all their nerdy glory. “Barb is relatable, responsible, and the bestie who always tries to be there for you, trying to help you make the right choices, at least until things go all upside down. The Book of Barb is a 96-page hardcover by Nadia Bailey featuring full-color illustrations by artist Phil Constantinesco. Celebrating Stranger Things‘s trendsetting style icon and ultimate wing woman, Barb, the book features guidance, quizzes, mix-tape recommendations, and more.” What’s more perfect for a geeky gift guide than Barb?
10. Harry Potter Hogwarts Quilted Kisslock Satchel – $37.42
This quilted burgundy satchel from Harry Potter with the Hogwarts crest and golden tone hardware is a magical nerdy gift for your wizard and witch friends. Perfect for a day at Universal Studios Wizarding World of Harry Potter, your next convention, or for a bit of #NerdingOut!
11. Star Wars Darth Vader Blazer – $119.99
“You’ll be most impressive when wearing this sharp black Darth Vader blazer. Featuring embroidered control panel lights on the left chest, Imperial cog buttons, and cut-and-sew satin stripes at the shoulders, the subtle Dark Lord of the Sith details will make everyone think twice before boasting about their new technological terrors in your presence.” It would make a perfect piece to compliment a couple’s #NerdingOut outfit with the Star Wars “Dark Side of the Moon” shirt from Prophecy Girl.
12. Star Wars C-3PO Satin Souvenir Jacket – $63.92
It’s hard to believe that 40 years ago in a galaxy far, far away we were introduced to Star Wars. “Wear your heart and your love of Star Wars on your sleeve with this satin souvenir jacket that pays homage to the fortieth anniversary with an embroidered logo chest hit. The back features beautifully detailed embroidery of R2-D2 and C-3PO on Tatooine as seen in A New Hope. The jacket is finished off with gold tone sleeves and lightsaber printed lining.”
