Looking for gift ideas to buy for the geeks in your life? The holiday season is almost here and the game is afoot to find the best gift for your loved ones – or in some cases to reward yourself for an extremely good, or extremely tough, year.

Posted by admin on

In this post you will find a list of nifty gift ideas that geeks will love – some of them are inspired by popular movies, TV series and games, while others are just flat out "shut up and take my money" merchandise. Now, let the shopping begin!
Inception: Spinning Totem
This iconic spinning totem sums up what we love (or hate) about the movie Inception. Get one of your own and give it a spin.
Sherlock: 221B Keychain
Fans of Sherlock would love to have this 2-inch customizable lightweight aluminum keychain with 221B engraved on it. There’s probably space for "Baker Street" in there.
Star Wars BB-8 Droid
A new droid (from Star Wars Awakening) that can learn and react to your voice. You can also control it with your smartphone. Without question, the perfect gift for hardcore Star Wars fans.
Death Note
Thankfully (or unfortunately) this is not a real Death Note. Instead of playing the role of Death himself, you can write groceries, wishlists, study notes and other harmless (aka boring) stuff in this.
Time Turner
An officially licensed time-turner necklace from the Harry Potter series, the thing that Hermione used to attend extra classes with, made with 24 karat gold plating and inner rotating rings. The perfect collectible for fans of the book and series.
Captain America Backpack
Carry your belongings in this Captain America shield (as seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron). The backpack comes with several pockets inside including two for accessories and for a laptop.
Death Star Ice Sphere Mold
An ice mold that shapes ice cubes in the form of the Death Star from the original Star Wars series. I can imagine that there are some fans who would create these ice cubes only to blast them while reenacting that iconic scene.

Exploding Kittens
