Let’s redefine the word nerd. No longer will it have the unfortunate stimulus of generations past. Now the nerd is simply someone who revels in their interests, be it sci-fi, manga, graphic novels, computer coding, web development, anime, and the list goes on! So how about some great gifts for that inner (or outer) nerd?
My Mimi- Floppy Disk Pillow $28
I’ve liked My Mimi’s fun and colorful pillows for a while now. From some very French toast (with a monocle and a slim stache) to these delightfully sweet Floppy disk pillows!
Hailing from an era when Floppy disks were used as more that coasters and a means to construct a pencil cup (yes people do use FD’s for this), I get a nostalgic kick out of this particular pillow.
Handz – Retro Gameboy Print $20
Everyone remember their first Game Boy? Mine was the second generation, huge (over an inch thick) and fire engine red. This colorful print harks back even further to the original!
So grab a print and celebrate an awesome piece of hardware in bright, bold colors!
LucyRavenScar – Star Wars Amigurumi Patterns $37
Star Wars and crochet… can things get any better? Pick up the patterns for these adorable little guys and choose, do you give them the pattern or make a Star Wars plush just for them!
R2D2 is particularly dashing what with his tiny little arms.
Cheek and Stitch – Plush octopus $17.50
These little 8 legged cuties come in an assortment of colors with a number of different accessories.
GirliePains – Paper Polaroid Camera $3.90
The polaroid was and is a pretty awesome technical concept, but film is expensive now that the cameras aren’t being produced like they used to.
Why not give your friend a quick, easy and colorful version? They’ll be waiting a long time for their pictures but hey, these little guys will look great on the shelf.
Ringostone – Batman Necklace $13
Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na Batman! Holy necklaces Batman that’s a mighty fine… bat signal you got there. Take your favorite superhero everywhere with this sweet little charm necklace
MakeThingsBetter – Tardis iPad mini case $24.99
No list would be complete without a Dr. Who reference so how about a Tardis iPad case? Travel in time or just use you favorite app! (Which frankly sounds less stressful)
Finger Pricks – Pokémon Cross Stitch Pattern ($4)
More Gameboy love. This Cross stitch is DIY meets Nerdette in the best way. And If you wanted to spice things up you could always use colored thread! Or if your Giftee is not into DIY but loves the look of Cross stitch you could always give them an adorable Pokémon of their own like this cute little Charmander ($15) from Wicked Geeky Crafts.
Teal Poodle – Minecraft Pig Shower Curtain ($74)
If someone you love simply cannot get enough of the game Minecraft then this may be the perfect “functional” gift!
If you’re looking for something on the smaller side though, Teal Poodle also sells throw pillows in Minecraft prints (roughly $36). And you can get slime, zombies, creepers, chickens and more!
