Shopping Guide: Gifts for Nerds

This category is so big, people don’t just understand the complexity of it. In order to rock a gift for the nerd in your life, you have to understand the kind of nerd he/she is. What fandom do they geek out over?

You don’t want to make the awful mistake of giving a Star Wars fan a Trekkie item because we will mentally choke you with the power of the force. But then again you do have nerds that are a fan of both. Which brings me back around to my original point of knowing what fandom does your nerd’s soul belongs to. A TV show? A movie franchise? Is he/she a gamer? Are they into Marvel or DC Comics? (trust me on this, the difference is crutial!) So many fandoms, so little time.

Back in the day (you know like 5 years ago), we were limited to a few websites and stores. But with the rise of superhero shows, blockbuster movies, and insanely designed video games, the search is overwhelming. Even for me, searching Doctor Who merchandize, gives me a minor panic attack. Because not only do I want it all, there’s SO much to pick from.

So today’s list has been curated to include a little of everything. Hope this helps you in any way. Specially since there’s only a few shopping days left.


 

LOOTCRATE SUBSCRIPTION

LootCrate

For $19.99 USD a month (including shipping) you get a monthly themed box with exclusive collectable items. And to make matters even better, they just launched the release of LootAnime and LootPets. Every so often, they release specialty crates. For example, they currently have a Star Wars, and a Call of Duty crates. These crates are limited edition, so once they sell out, that’s it.
