The self-proclaimed geek on your list needs a holiday gift that’s the perfect blend of quirky, useful, and funny. If you’re still on the hunt for a present that meets these criteria, look no further than this list. We’ve got options that are perfect for every unapologetically geeky loved one on your list this year:
A bubble wrap calendar that’s oh-so satisfying
Everyone knows that the best part of ordering a package is popping all over the bubble wrap that comes inside said package. Now that special person on your list can experience that satisfying “pop!” all year long when you gift them with a bubble wrap calendar. It’s a massive calendar with each date marked by a juicy bubble just waiting to be squished.
Intergalactic bath bombs
Your loved one can relax, unwind, and transport themselves to a far away planet when they soak in a bath filled with these solar system bath bombs. Perfect for any science nerd and/or bath enthusiast.
A mini-fridge with a rock-and-roll edge
They’ll love this mini-fridge that looks like an amplifier. After all, it does double duty as it keeps their favorite beverages and snacks cold and shows off their inner rockstar at the same time.
Relive your childhood with the Oregon Trail card game
If they loved playing the Oregon Trail computer game for hours on end as a kid, snag them this card game version. Just make sure you don’t die of dysentery or lose your oxen as you try to ford the river. It’s still just as frustrating as when it happened when you were a kid.
A magic wand TV remote
For those who are convinced that their Hogwarts acceptance letter just got lost in the mail and is actually en route, this magic wand TV remote is a must. A quick flick of the wrist will have them flipping the channel to tune into their favorite show.
A gift that turns any home bar into a laboratory
Pouring a vodka soda is great at the end of a long day, but wouldn’t you rather feel like you’re relying on the periodic table to craft the perfect, chemically balanced mixture? This lab set lets them unleash their inner mad scientist and get to work stirring, mixing, and nerding out as they prepare their favorite post-work cocktail.
Super Mario Bros magnets
Super Mario Bros was a staple for millions of kids. Now they can adorn their fridge with a tribute to the game that caused them to waste hours upon hours with these retro magnets. It’s a necessary dose of nostalgia for their kitchen.
The self-proclaimed geek on your list will absolutely nerd out for these presents. Be the hero they need when you grab them a few of these items this holiday season!
