10 great gifts for geeky babies

Updated on November 1, 2015

Inspiration for nerdy baby showers and baby's first Christmas

Your super geeky friends are expecting a little new nerd to join the computer, science, gadget or comic book crazy family and you have to find a fitting present.

Despair not, because I have scoured the Internet and found the best geeky gifts for the happy parents and their offspring.

Some of these presents are perfect for when the news is just out to help the parents cope with the pregnancy and to stop them from paniccing about having to take responsibility for something besides their online alter egos.

Some of the items are great if you want to give away a gag gift that will make the geeky parents giggle and hopefully help them panic less )or more depending on your level of evil) about the upcoming event.

Most of these gift ideas are traditional baby shower presents, but with a nerdy twists that should be appreciated by the receiver. As a geeky mom myself this article also doubles as my personal wishlist as the nerdy baby stuff I showcase is just so cute I can't help but want it all.

If you are a creative individual and you are looking to craft the baby shower gift yourself, then you can find a list of free geeky crochet, knitting and amigurumi patterns further down this article.

Another Star Trek inspired gift. This one will help with mealtime. It will keep the baby entertained and focused while making the whole experience more entertaining for both parents and the mini geek.

The LED lights on he bib activates when movement.

 

The Baby Owner's Manual

The Baby Owner's Manual: Operating Instructions, Trouble-Shooting Tips, and Advice on First-Year Maintenance (Owner's and Instruction Manual)

For true geeks technology use comes second nature. There is nothing scary about the Internet, computers, mobile phones etc. Who needs an instruction manual, just pressing buttons has never hurt anyone. But when it comes to another human being and even worse one that is 100% dependant on you, then most nerds will get a bit intimated.

That is why this tongue in cheek instruction manual to infants is the perfect gift for a geeky couple who are having or just had a child.

It will make them laugh and with the humorous approach it will make the task of raising a mini geek a little less daunting.

 

Baby Cthulu plushie

Toy Vault My First Cthulhu Plush
Toy Vault My First Cthulhu Plush

If you need a present for parents who love roleplaying, then this plush toy will be ideal. Cthulhu is a scary monster in H. P. Lovecrafts universe, but the baby Cthulhu is cute and fluffy.

This gift will be highly appreciated by any nerd who has ever played pen and paper rpgs.

 

Hello Kitty themed cute pacifier

Hello Kitty is one of those japanese things that every geek just loves. This pacifier would make a great gift for a baby girl with geeky tendencies.

The Hello Kitty theme and the pink color makes it irresistibly cute, while still being nerdy enough to be cool. (Or well as cool as any geeky object gets ;))

 

Dragon activity plushie

Lamaze Flip Flap Dragon

This Dragon plushtoy is a nifty little combination of toy and plushie. The soft huggable dragon flaps its wings when the cord is pulled. It is made from many bright and different fabrics which will help develop the senses and imagination of the baby. My daughter has loved Lamaze products and this is no exception.

What better time to direct the newborn towards a path of geekiness than at the infant stage. Also, dragons are just awesome, period!

 

Star Wars fork and Spoon

Star Wars 2 Piece Snap Cutlery Set

It is almost tradition to give special dinnerware at baptisms and with this Star Wars themed fork and spoon, you can honor that tradition while still keeping the present geeky.

 

Free crochet, amigurumi and knitting patterns for baby geeks

If you are a creative person who loves to craft, then you can make your own nerdy and personalized gift for the little new geek addition.

Below you will find links to patterns and recipes for multiple different geeky characters from both computer games and popular movies.

Whether the parents are fans of Star Wars, Angry Birds, Nintendo or oldschool games like PacMan, you should find something to fit their taste here.
