This holiday season, we want to highlight the best gift-giving websites to find all the specific, quirky gifts for your inner nerd and the nerds in your life.
1. Top Nerd Shopping is for Gamers
Think Geek, once a personal favorite, is now rolled into Game Stop. I’m somewhat disappointed because Think Geek was fabulous for nerd shopping. However, now you can shop the toys and collectibles while picking up your latest game title. Nerds like us love video games ;).
2. Shopping for the Uncommon Nerd
Uncommon Goods a little less fandom-centric but equally as unique with the products it offers. From planetary wine stoppers to long-distance friendship lamps, you can find an assortment of unique items. For your travel-loving nerd, your wine aficionado, and more, this is the site to shop.
3. Careful, Don’t Spend All Your Money
Once you’ve explored this site, you’ll realize just how much you’ve been missing out on. This is Why I’m Broke offer fandom gifts and all kinds of random stuff, they understand what you want and why you went to their site. If you’re not trying to break the bank this holiday, they have an easy slider to set your spending limit.
4. For Some Less Common Electronics
Hammacher Schlemmer might pull at your purse strings a little bit but you’ll be surprised to find many of the fun, useful tech gadgets are under $30 such as the glare blocking visor or stealth ear amplifier. If the tech products here are not up to your speed, check out this next suggestion.
5. For the Serious Tech in Your Life
Adafruit site is exactly where your circuit-loving loved one can go to build the next Johnny 5 (if you don’t know what that is, Google it!) But seriously, there’s all kinds of awesome and unique gadgets and circuitry on this site that you won’t be able to find as easily anywhere else, so if “Neotrellis” and “Feather Board” sound familiar, give this website a look.
Of course, you can default to any of the major online retailers to find gifts but why not venture far, far away to get a gift that will really bring a smile to your loved one’s face. We hope that with these recommendations from us here at markITnerds you’ll find nerd shopping to be a breeze
