Gifts for the Geeks you Love
It’s that time of year again where you start wracking your brains about what to get the geeks in your life. Lucky for you, from Mass Effect to Star Wars to Harry Potter, we’ve got it covered!
Magic Wand Remote Control
Ask any Harry Potter fan what they want, and they’ll probably say a wand and a chance to go to Hogwarts. I can’t help with the Hogwarts part, but a working wand is definitely within your grasp. This magic wand made by Kymera is gorgeous to look at and totally practical, because it is also a TV remote. Simply point your wand at the TV (or other device), speak an incantation (not totally required) and presto!
Jedi Bath Robe
Practical and very geeky is this Jedi bathrobe. The 100% cotton robe is soft and cozy, by also long and hooded. Perfect for the Star Wars fan in your life who likes to re-enact scenes from the movies while dressed in a bathrobe.
Death Star Planetarium
Fun for both adult and younger Star Wars fans, this tabletop planetarium is shaped like the death star and projects two versions of the night sky. The first version is the one viewed from Earth. The other version however, will project the night sky as seen a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away.
Star Trek Door Chime
Star Trek fans will love this Star Trek door chime modelled after the communicator panel from Star Trek: TOS. Once you’ve mounted the door chime, motion sensors will alert you whenever someone passes through the “doorway”. The door chime has two settings. It can either make the “swoosh” sound of the doors opening on the Enterprise, or the Red Alert klaxon. Also, if you push the button, it’ll make the little communicator noise.
Dalek Projection Clock
Didn’t think the Doctor Who fan in your life could possiblly have use for another Dalek, did ya? But not only is the Dalek projection clock cool, it’s useful! It will project the time onto your ceiling. And, you can use it to get you up in the mornings. You know, as long as you don’t mind waking up to a screeching Dalek yelling “exterminate!” and pointing its gunstick at you.
Any Mass Effect fan will jump at the chance to own this full scale prop-replica of the M-3 Predator. The heavy pistol, manufactured by Elanus Risk Control was featured in both ME2 and ME3. This replica is made from polystone and is hand painted by the folks at TriForce. Just 500 of these M-3 Predators were produced, so get it fast!
This Star Trek Spock hoodie available from Her Universe is such a cool idea, I can’t believe no one has ever thought of it before. Be a regular science or medical crewman and just wear the hood down. Or, put the hoodie up for the full-Vulcan experience, complete with pointy ears!
Iron Man Mark I Figure
Iron Man fans will love this Hot Toys one-sixth scale figure of Tony Stark, wearing the Mark I Iron Man suit. The figure has 36 points of articulation, features a face mask that opens to reveal Robert Downey Jr’s likeness and a light-up ARC reactor. Not only that, there’s even a flame effect that attaches to the wrist flamethrower.
