What the Varchar?
Are you constantly competing with Star Wars for your husband's affections? Does your sister seem to love Jaime Lannister more than she loves you? If you have a friend or relative who proudly flies the geek banner, here are just a few gifts they'll love.
It's a truth universally acknowledged that a geek in possession of many electronics must be in want of more electronics. The good news is that there's always something fresh on the market, even if it's just an upgrade or software patch for an existing product, so you shouldn't have any problem finding something for your friend. Buy them a cool digital camera; get them a sleek new smartphone in an electric color; splurge for a high-end tablet or e-reader.
2. Adult Coloring Books
Adult coloring books have become a popular way for people to relax and de-stress. The geeky world has jumped on the trend as well, and now you can find coloring books for all kinds of books, movies and TV shows. Does your friend adore Outlander? Do they get nostalgic about Harry Potter? Do they go crazy for Captain America? There are coloring books for all of these series and more.
3. Tools, Parts and Supplies
If your loved one has a hobby, you can make their day by giving them electronic or mechanical trinkets to help them further their passion. If they build computers, for example, you can give them graphics cards and external hard drives; if they restore cars, you can give them alternator starter rebuilders. By showing an interest in their hobbies, you'll give them both a physical and emotional gift.
Funkos are small action figures taking the world by storm. There are literally hundreds if not thousands to choose from, and they all come from media and pop culture, so they make great collectibles. If your friend has a favorite movie or a beloved character from a popular book series, there's probably a Funko for them. Start their collection today by giving them Naruto, Matt Murdock, Hermione Granger or even the monster from the Alien series.
These are just a few presents that are sure to delight the geeks in your life. Whether you're shopping for a birthday, anniversary or "just because" event, these gifts should show your geek that you still love them despite their obsession with Chewbacca.
