It’s that time of year! The Geek Gift Guide 2020
Buying presents for people is HARD, especially if you have different interests and hobbies. We’ve gathered up loads of gift ideas for the geeks in your life. No matter what kind of things they are into, we hope you’ll find something amongst our suggestions that is perfect for them!
No list of ours would ever be complete without us mentioning comics from Vault. Vault continues to not only produce incredible, diverse comics, they continue to just be GOOD people. The stories they publish are so varied, you will not struggle to find the perfect new series for the comic geek in your life! We have reviewed a whole host of Vault comics, which you can check out here.
Riverdale, along with the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina continue to absolutely smash it on Netflix. The originial comics series as well as the newer issues are a great gift for a fan of the show! There are SO MANY incredible avenues these characters go down, from werewolves, to vampires, from insane crossovers and of course a whole load of hijinx!
Liminal 11 is a mind, body, spirit publisher creating tarot decks, illustrated books, and comics. They are a really positive voice, focused on diversity, wellness in both mental health and spirit and just all-round lovely folks.
Insert Coin Clothing continue to just be a lovely group of nerds, they make excellent, slightly different from the norm, gaming clothing. So there’s aren’t the usual designs you see after a game’s release, they put so much thought and effort into every product and it shows! I personally picked up a Last of Us grey Ellie tattoo T-shirt for TLoU day one year and it still looks as spot-on as it did then! Also, they do gift cards!
Rogue Print Co
I love Rogue Print and have so much of their stuff. The “It Gets Worse” baseball tee is by FAR the most comfortable tee I’ve ever owned and it was the absolute perfect uniform for all of 2020, let’s be REAL.
Literary Emporium is the perfect place to order for a person who loves to read. They have a huge range of beautifully designed clothing, pins and prints. There is guaranteed to be something for the book nerd in your life! I personally have so much of their stuff, in particular the tarot range!
Zavvi has a HUGE range of gear available, not limited to these awesome tee’s quite often the tee’s are on offer as well! They do adults and kids sizes and there is sure to be something to suit the person you are buying for!
Dungeons and Dragons
Whether the nerd in your life is the DM or the adventurer you won’t go wrong picking them something from Dungeons and Dragons. There are many options available, so it is always worth doing a little research before you pick something up!
Big Potato games are absolutely perfect for fans of board games, or even those who only occasionally join in. There are games for all age ranges and all are beautifully presented, well thought out and intense fun! My personal recommendations are Blockbuster and Muffin Time!
Handy Dan’s offers funky and geeky 3D Printed items. There is a whole range of great stuff from horror adjacent skulls to video game-style cartridge holders and accessories! I personally am LIVING for the little skull plant holders!
Jinx and Jonas are the creative partnership behind The Haunted Bouncy Castle! They’ve been creating art together for 6 years and are excited to have their own creative small business in Glasgow, Scotland. We are a queer, neurodivergent, small business that specializes in handmade halloween themed gifts and pastel gothic home decor. All of our products are designed and handmade by us!
All hand made and vegan, Geeky Clean’s products are perfect for giving this Christmas. The products are lovingly designed and hand crafted with inspiration from all across the geekysphere. But these will be especially popular with the table top crowd, in particular, those dice in bath bombs which look incredible! We are also affiliates so drop valksquad in the checkout!
Okay, so it is very rare that my two great loves are mushed together so beautifully, but here it is. Norse themed coffee blends! I personally picked up a bad of Feyja recently and it is absolute perfection. They come in a range of sizes and you can have beans or grounds, I went for the espresso. Delivery was speedy and all around a grand experience!
These are some of the cutest crochet creations ever. In particular the video game characters are a real delight, these are available on commission but there are a few items on the etsy page available to pick up now!
