The Ultimate Geeky gift guide 2015

Updated on November 1, 2015

Top 10 gifts for geeks, nerds and other interesting people.

Do you have a birthday or an anniversary coming up for a geeky friend or colleague? Or do you want to surprise your nerdy son or daughter with a small present? Maybe you are looking for a gift for your geeky partner or perhaps you just want to spoil yourself a bit with a small thing only a real nerd can appreciate fully.

It can be hard to buy a birthday present for a geeky person, because oftentimes their interests are very obscure to someone who is not absorbed in the world of geeks and nerds. I have compiled this list to help out non-geeks shop for the nerds in their life and also for real geeks to have something to put on their christmas or birthday wishlist. Hopefully this giftguide for geeks will provide inspiration and help no matter if you are a shopping for gifts for a geeky gamer, a Star Wars nerd of a plain old science geek.

I have tried to find geeky concepts, ideas and suggestions that works both for him and her and you will see that many of the gifts here can cross over different age groups as well. Real geeks love toys, gadgets and weird, gimmicky apparatuses no matter what age they are originally intended for.

Enjoy the article, I hope it will help you in your hunt for the perfect geeky birthday, christmas or anniversary present.
