Bored of giving the same gifts every Christmas? Aftershave, bubble bath, a book. Spice things up for your loved ones with some geeky gift ideas that’ll show your love for them and the geekverse.
When it comes to geeky gifts, there’s no shortage of options. You can now get merchandise for pretty much any franchise you can think of. From retro video games, to movies, to books. This makes shopping easy if you know the franchise your giftee is interested in. It also makes it really hard shopping because you’ll end up wanting to buy tons of things for yourself!
ThinkGeek is pretty much your one stop shop for geeky items. They also have 25 stores around the USA you can visit. They sell everything from home items such as mugs and rugs, to clothing and replica props. You can find some of the most popular geeky franchises. The stock is often updated. Most of their items will ship internationally, although some won’t.
It’s a good place if you’re looking for themed items such as bags and clothing. There’s lots of options for house decoration, from duvet covers to lamps. They do sell replica props, although these are more sparse than their other items. The geeky t-shirt range is also a good call to check out.
JList is the place to go if you’re looking for Japanese merchandise. They have a wonderfully large and beautiful selection of figurines. They have a lot of products for anime and manga franchises.For chefs in the family, they have a great choice of bento related items! Plus there’s tons of Japanese snacks available too.
You can buy manga as well as hentai in english. There is a large selection of Japanese pornography, from DVDs to magazines to calendars. Of course to go with those arousing products, they sell lots of adult toys for both men and women.

Etsy is a fantastic place to look for more unique geeky gifts ideas. The items are mostly hand made or crafted and you’re buying directly from the makers themselves. It’s especially popular with those who are interested in Harry Potter and Dr Who.
It’s also a great place to look if you’re trying to find geeky jewellery. A lot of the vendors will also custom make costumes and clothing, tailored to fit you perfectly. If you do want to order a custom, make sure to give enough time before Christmas as you have to take into account the time to make the costume as well as to ship it.
Finally you should also try looking at Amazon if you have something more specific in mind. Amazon has a great range of really interesting geeky products, and they do fast delivery too.
