Geek out on Christmas day! 5 Gift ideas for the geek in your life

With only a few weeks to Christmas, gift-shopping has now definitely picked up the pace. Taking a look at your Christmas list is already daunting but when it comes to that friend/relative who has a special love for a certain show or franchise, you might just start breaking a sweat. Despite the plethora of very busy holiday sales and the shuffling of shoppers, it seems impossible to find something just for the geek in your life. I know the difficulties of scouring malls to try and find a gift for the Potterhead best friend or the long-time Star Wars fan brother and ending up empty-handed at the end of the day. Fear not! Here are some suggestions from a fellow gift-giving enthusiast and self-proclaimed expert (keyword: self-proclaimed) at buying gifts for your beloved geeks.

And we're live at Hungry Meeples Restaurant, Games & Events Place for International Table Top Day! Come on over, play games, and shop for your favorite geeky merchandise! 😀

For the Potterhead in your life, why not a time turner or even a replica wand? If your loved one is still mourning the very very belated delivery of their Hogwarts letter (I still am!), why not gift them with their own notebook reminiscent of Newt Scamander’s journal so they can show it off after the Christmas break? If not, something more subtle like a snitch bracelet or necklace should also do the trick. The Potter Heritage has no shortage of Potter-related goodies, all of them paying homage to the books and movies that have shaped so many of our childhoods.

From house scarves to trinkets to even your own tickets to Platform 9 3/4, you’re sure to snag something for the Harry Potter lover. So while they can’t make anything levitate at the flourish of their wands, they will definitely have their own magical moment when they find something that feeds their fandom love. The Potter Heritage is the place to go for those with lightning still in their eyes after all this time (always).

2. Sumafo

For your friend who has immersed themselves in the world of Japanese anime, have them deck out their phones with these sleek and stylish made-to-order phone cases from Sumafo! They’re particularly popular for their jersey phone cases, inspired by the sudden wave of sports anime that has taken the world by storm. Your loved one can definitely emblazon their gadget with their favorite character’s jersey number.

Their cute designs are also very smart and minimalist. Usually, they’re patterned after iconic character clothing so dressing up your phone has never been easier.
