At Lost Universe, we love our caped crusaders. But, not all heroes wear capes. We have real heroes walking among us. Dads.
And, Father’s Day is the perfect time to drag them out of the shadows and celebrate them!
So, we’ve put together a super cool list of pop culture merch for your superhero dad, stepdad, or father figure. Check it out!
Father’s Day Gifts for Pop Culture Dads
OK, here we go. In no particular order, here is our list of 10 Father’s Day gift ideas that we think any geeky dad will absolutely love.
1. STAR WARS R2-D2 MULTI FUNCTION PRESSURE COOKER
Dads do seem to love food more than Jabba the Hutt. So, if you’re shopping for a Star Wars dad, this R2-D2 pressure cooker is a great idea.
This multi-function gadget can be used to pressure-cook, sauté, steam, slow cook, and warm meals. And, with its awesome R2-D2 theming, the Star Wars vibe in the kitchen will be (ahem) unadroidable!
2. STAR WARS STORMTROOPER CHEESEBOARD AND KNIFE SET – Only at Lost Universe!
So, let’s face it, the original Star Wars movies are a little cheesy. But, that’s why we love them so much. And, that’s also what makes this Star Wars Stormtrooper cheeseboard so awesome!
This wooden board has a Stormtrooper helmet design etched into the front face. Then, slide it open and you’ll see a set of cheese serving utensils. So, it’s got almost everything you need. Just load it more (de)brie than there was after the Death Star exploded.
3. HALO INFINITE MASTER CHIEF HELMET DECANTER SET WITH 4 GLASSES
Master Chief’s helmet is usually filled with Master Chief’s head and the spirit of the SPARTAN-II commando corps. But, in the case of this Halo decanter set, it’s filled with any sort of spirit you like!
This decanter is based on Halo Infinite and is shaped to perfectly resemble Master Chief’s helmet. It also comes with four matching UNSC tumblers, and comes in a super cool gift box, making it a great gift for Father’s Day.
4. ATARI FLASHBACK RETRO GAMING CONSOLE WITH WIRED CONTROLLERS
A lot of things that the ‘70s spawned, we’re happy for it to keep. Wildly inappropriate sitcom jokes and hair helmets, we’re looking at you. But, the Atari console will always be welcome in the future.
Chances are good that your dad played the original Atari. And, if he didn’t, he surely remembers the 8-bit vibe of the ‘80s and early ‘90s. That’s why this Atari Flashback console is an excellent Father’s Day gift idea.
It’s basically exactly the same as the original console, just way smaller. And with HDMI. And, with the ability to save games and load them later. And, it comes with 110 classic games built in. And 2 controllers. OK, thinking about it, it’s way better than the original.
5. STAR WARS MOULDED GLASS STORMTROOPER DECANTER
Obi-Wan managed to get inside the head of a Stormtrooper easily enough. But, is that a trick exclusively for Jedi? Nope. You can fill the head of a Stormtrooper with whatever you like… just as long as it’s cool liquid. All you need is this Stormtrooper decanter.
Modelled on the original Stormtrooper design by Shepperton Studios in 1976, this decanter is an excellent piece of Star Wars memorabilia... that serves a brilliant function. Yep, able to hold 750 ml of spirit or wine, it’s a great gift for a thirsty Star Wars fan.
6. GHOSTBUSTERS TRAP INCENSE BURNER
Bad spirits are just like bad smells. Both can haunt your house. But, fortunately, you can bust both in the exact same way… using the Ghostbusters’ Ghost Trap!
OK, we’ll level with you. This incense burner is more for the bad smell side. But, with the smoke coming out of the open trap, it looks just like the real deal. And, those smells will disappear faster than a Marshmallow Man caught in crossed photon beams.
7. POKÉMON GRILLED CHEESE MAKER
Available here: https://lostuniverse.com/products/pokemon-grilled-cheese-maker
Would your dad love his toasted sandwiches to have a serious Pokémon twist? Then chose this kick-Ash Pokémon Grilled Cheese Maker!
This sandwich toaster is designed to print the impressions of Pikachu and a Poké Ball into the sarnies, which is cooler than an Ice Type Pokémon.
8. STAR WARS I AM YOUR FATHER MUG & KEYCHAIN SET
So, as geek themed Father’s Day gifts go, can you do any better than this? This Star Wars mug comes with the classic line, “I Am Your Father” printed on it, along with a graphic of Darth Vader. And, to make more of an impact than the Death Star on Alderaan, it has, “Big Bad Dad” on the other side (of the Force).
This also comes with a Darth Vader keyring, making it a brilliant gift set for Father’s Day.
9. STAR WARS STORMTROOPER 4 PACK OF SPACE CRAFT BEER
We thought Stormtroopers were renowned for having terrible aim. So, then, why does this Stormtrooper craft beer pack hit the spot like nothing else?
This 4-pack of Space Craft beer contains four different beers, all with out-of-this-galaxy flavour. In the pack you get Galactic Pale Ale, Lightspeed Pilsner, SNIPA (Situation Normal Indian Pale Ale), and Shadow Stout.
10. ONLY FOOLS AND HORSES ROBIN RELIANT SLIPPERS
Somehow Father’s Day and Only Fools and Horses go hand in hand. We’re trying really hard not to make any retro references. But, there it is.
So, if you know a dad who thinks OFAH is pukka, grab him these Robin Reliant slippers. We think they’re bonnet de douche, which is the French phrase for “excellent” if our memory serves. They’re super comfortable and fit UK sizes 8 to 10.
