A Very Nerdy Christmas

Posted in etc., Life with tags , , , , , , , on 12/20/2011 by Papa Nerd

Do you have a nerd in your life?  You know, the kind of guy or gal who rarely loves comics, Star Wars (or Trek.  Why anyone likes Star Trek, I’ll never know.  Those shows and movies blow harder than the Star Wars prequels.  That’s saying something.), video games, and the like?  How easy is it to shop for said nerd?  Not easy.  Just ask my wife.

There’s no need to fear, Papa Nerd is here!  I’ll try to take some of the pain out of your Christmas shopping.  Is your nerd a comic book fanboy or girl?  I know how hard it is to find superhero collectibles for someone who seems to have them all.  Luckily, there are people out there who have thought of that.  Check out SuperHeroStuff.com.  They have items for pretty much every superhero out there.  Does your nerd have a hard-on for Superman?  Check this out.

Superman SnuggyI have one of these.  Very comfy.  It sells for $29.95 at SuperHeroStuff.com.  They also have Green Lantern and Wonder Woman snuggies.

Are you on a budget, like me, and find $30 to be a little much?  Try stuff like this:

Superman BobbleheadCool collectible, half the price, at $16.99.  I would like one of these, but I don’t have a place to put it.  Plus, my son would probably destroy it.

Again, they have clothes and collectibles for most superheroes, Marvel and D.C.

If your nerd is more of an all around geek, take a look at ThinkGeek.com.  They specialize in all around nerd stuff, not just superheroes.  Do you watch Big Bang Theory?  If so, you may have seen their Periodic Table shower curtain.  If not, it looks like this:

Periodic Table shower curtain
You can have this on your nerd’s shower for $29.99.  My wife and I both want this one.

For the Star Wars nerd, you may consider something like this:

R2-D2 Ice Cube TraysThese babies will set you back a cool $9.99.

This is my personal favorite of the Star Wars things: a remote controlled lightsaber wall lamp!

Lightsaber Room Light

This will set you back $30, but the Padawan in your life will love you for it.

They have a lot of geek toys, gadgets, and collectibles, so if you need any gift ideas for the nerd or geek in your life, give ThinkGeek.com a look.

Until next time…
