It is said that people tend to give gifts that they, in their heart of hearts, really want. With the holidays fast approaching and the crazed masses ready to venture out for Black Friday sales, or flexing their fingers and over-extending their credit cards for Cyber Monday deals, I’ve put together a list of ten geeky gift ideas, under $50, that your geek is going to love.
Why is this not in my life? This is a set of 6 magnets with a larger dry-erase board that wipes off easily. It doesn’t come with erasable markers so be sure to add that to the stocking-stuffer and make sure it’s not permanent marker!
Star Wars Death Star Waffle Maker
This Star Wars Death Star Waffle Maker is definitely going to be a geek favorite for breakfast any time of year. There’s more than one way to destroy a Death Star. Now get in m’ belly!
Never Forget Novelty T-shirtIt’s hard to fail with novelty t-shirts but this particular shirt pay homage to the oldies but goodies: the floppy disk, the VHS, and the cassette tape. If your geek survived using a pencil as cassette tape fixer/rewinder, then they are going to appreciate this shirt.
Tech Support Checklist Mug
What is this world without a good cup of coffee? Nothing! So why not have a coffee mug that tells everyone what they should check off before they bother you…from drinking your cuppa and getting actual work done?
Test Tube Spice RackEven geeks have to eat, so why not spice up their life with a spice rack that makes their kitchen unique? This set includes flasks, a display rack and stickers so you can label which spices you wish to add to your display. The rubber stoppers keep them sealed and the salt and pepper top has holes so you can use them as shakers. Just be aware that it does take up some counter space and the spices are not included.
Dark Knight vs Joker 12” Vinyl Record Design Wall ClockThere’s a huge debate between DC and Marvel comics enthusiasts, but regardless of which universe you dwell in, this Batman and Joker clock is pretty badass. If you’re getting this as a gift for someone, don’t be a jerk. Include one AA battery.
